Cardiovascular diseases continue to be a major cause of mortality and morbidity in the world population. First open heart procedure was performed by Gibbon in 1953, since then many advancements have been introduced to the field of cardiac surgery. Minimally invasive techniques were introduced, which include minimally invasive coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), off-pump technique, minimally invasive valve surgery or transcatheter techniques to implant stentless or sutureless valves. The hybrid strategy to address coronary disease combines catheterisation procedures with standard surgical techniques...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of preoperative intravitreal bevacizumab injection on the incidence of postoperative haemorrhage and visual prognosis, in patients undergoing 25-gauge micro incision vitrectomy surgery (MIVS) for diabetic vitreous haemorrhage. METHODS: One hundred and twenty two eyes of 122 patients of diabetic retinopathy of both genders and aged over 18 years, who presented with non-resolving vitreous haemorrhage were enrolled for this study. All patients received an intravitreal injection of 1...

BACKGROUND: -Total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) is a rare form of congenital heart disease. This study describes current surgical treatment strategies and experiences for a cohort of patients from two congenital cardiac centers in Shanghai and Guangdong, China. METHODS: -This retrospective study included 768 patients operated on between 2005 and 2014. While most patients (n=690) underwent conventional repair, a sutureless technique was employed in 10% (n=78) of cases...

OBJECTIVES: To determine which procedure, aortic valve replacement (AVR) with a sutureless or rapid-deployment prosthesis (SL-AVR) or transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI), achieves better perioperative survival for severe aortic stenosis (AS), we conducted direct-comparison meta-analyses (DC-MAs) and an adjusted indirect-comparison meta-analysis (IDC-MA). METHODS: We searched MEDLINE, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials through April 2016...

This is a report of the first Brazilian experience with the Perceval sutureless aortic prosthesis in two patients with severe aortic stenosis. Transesophageal echocardiography was used during the procedure. The aortotomy was performed 1 cm above the sinotubular junction, followed by leaflets removal and decalcification. Correct valve size was selected, device released and an accommodation balloon used. The cardiopulmonary bypass times were 47 and 38 min and the cross-clamp times were 38 and 30 min. There was a significant decrease in mean gradients (41 and 75 mmHg preoperatively; 7 and 8 mmHg postoperatively)...

PURPOSE: To determine the safety and efficacy of poly-N-isopropylacrylamide, a thermoresponsive adhesive, for sutureless sclerotomy closure in rabbits. METHODS: Eight rabbits were randomized into three groups: short-term acute, mid-term chronic, and long-term chronic studies. A corresponding control group in which the scleral wounds were sutured by 6-0 vicryl sutures was assigned for each study group. A 20-gauge sclerotomy was performed following a core vitrectomy and 0...

Aortic valve replacement with a Perceval sutureless bioprosthesis is a viable rescue option for a failed aortic stentless prosthesis. However, a dilated sinotubular junction and ascending aorta are reported as a contraindication for this technique. We describe an aortic sutureless valve implantation in a patient with a dilated ascending aorta and small aortic root after Dacron graft replacement of the ascending aorta in a failed aortic stentless bioprosthesis.

PURPOSE: To evaluate the surgical outcomes of ocular surface reconstruction in corneal-conjunctival tumors using fibrin tissue adhesive. METHODS: A prospective noncomparative study was performed between May 2013 and February 2015. Patients were submitted to routine surgical procedure for corneal-conjunctival tumor excision followed by amniotic membrane graft transplantation using fibrin tissue adhesive (Evicel®, Omrix Biopharmaceuticals Ltd., Israel). Results were assessed on the 1st, 7th, 15th and 30th postoperative days to analyze subjective complaints, adhesiveness and positioning of the graft, potential complications and recurrences...

SUMMARY: Iris-claw intraocular lens (ICIOL) for aphakia needs a large 5.4 mm corneal incision for its implantation. The technique needs corneal suture, associated with some postoperative astigmatism. Foldable ICIOL is used in phakic patients undergoing refractive surgery and has the advantage of a sutureless small corneal incision. We report a case of a high myopic patient with dislocated intraocular lens (IOL) and no capsular support. Dislocated IOL with its capsular bag was released with three-port, 23-gauge vitrectomy; placed in the anterior chamber; sliced; and extruded through a 3...

OBJECTIVE: In this paper, we present an endoscopic expandable sizer conceived to allow thoracoscopic aortic valve replacement with a sutureless prosthesis using a dynamic sizing of the aortic annulus. METHODS: Ten aortic torsos were prepared using a five-trocar thoracoscopic setting. Once the aortotomy was performed and the aortic valve leaflets removed, the technical feasibility of the endoscopic sizing (introduction into the trocar, expansion into the aortic annulus, determination of the valve size, and retraction) with the device was assessed...

PURPOSE: To report the clinical and visual outcome of sutureless femtosecond laser-assisted anterior lamellar keratoplasty (FALK) for recurrent granular corneal dystrophy (GCD) in patients who had previously undergone penetrating keratoplasty and phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK) performed for recurrent dystrophy in the grafted eyes. METHODS: Four eyes of 4 patients who underwent FALK for recurrence of GCD in previously grafted eyes and underwent PTK performed for initial recurrence in the grafts were included...

REVIEW
Ahmed Al-Adhami, Nawwar Al-Attar
Aortic valve replacement is no longer an operation that is approached solely through a median sternotomy. Recent advances in the fields of transcatheter valves have expanded the proportion of patients eligible for intervention. Comparisons between transcatheter valves and conventional surgery have shown non-inferiority of transcatheter valve implants in patients with a high or intermediate pre-operative predictive risk. With advances in our understanding of sutureless valves and their applicability to minimally invasive surgery, the invasiveness and trauma of surgery can be reduced with potential improvements in outcome...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of active silicone oil removal with a 23-gauge (G) transconjunctival sutureless system. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred sixteen eyes of 113 patients who had previous retinal detachment surgery with pars plana vitrectomy and silicone oil injection surgery, and underwent silicone oil removal surgery with 23-G transconjonctival sutureless technique in our clinic between January 2009 and April 2014 were reviewed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: The surgical case of a dropped intraocular lens inside the vitreous cavity constitutes a real challenge for the operating surgeon. Herein, we describe a case series where an alternative optical rehabilitation technique for late intraocular lens-bag complex dislocation has been used. METHODS: A modern vitrectomy device was used to remove the capsule with the dropped intraocular lens using sutureless 25-gauge pars plana vitrectomy. To ensure a better aesthetic result, with faster patient recovery and a reduced number of operations, the whole procedure was performed during the same operating session; an iris-claw intraocular lens for aphakia was selected for implantation...

We report the case of a 83-year-old man who had undergone a full root replacement with a stentless bioprosthesis 15 years earlier. He was now diagnosed with severe aortic valve regurgitation secondary to leaflet degeneration, moderate mitral regurgitation, and single-vessel coronary artery disease. To reduce cross-clamp time and technical difficulties a sutureless aortic prosthesis was used. His surgery and postoperative course were uneventful. This is the first report of the successful use of a sutureless aortic valve prosthesis in a patient after bioprosthetic full root replacement who required additional mitral repair and coronary artery bypass surgery...
