Severe atherosclerotic calcification of the ascending aorta, the so-called porcelain aorta, precludes cardiac surgeons from placing an aortic cross-clamp and direct aortic cannulation due to the increased risk of systemic embolism and stroke. In the present report, we support the option of sutureless valve implantation in a case of a porcelain ascending aorta, with deep hypothermic circulatory arrest and also without aortic cross-clamp.

BACKGROUND: Peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) are commonly used for delivering intravenous therapy. PICC failure is unacceptably high (up to 40%) due to mechanical, infectious and thrombotic complications. Poor securement potentiates all complication types. This randomised controlled trial (RCT) aimed to examine the feasibility of a large RCT of four dressing and securement methods to prevent PICC failure. METHODS: This single-centre pilot RCT included 124 admitted medical/surgical/cancer patients aged ≥ 16 years with a PICC...

INTRODUCTION: Conjunctival Autograft (CAG) in pterygium surgery can be attached by sutures or fibrin glue or autologous in situ blood coagulum. Recurrence rate and other parameters related to pterygium surgery between CAG with sutures and autologous in situ blood coagulum have not been compared uniformly in advanced pterygia alone. AIM: To compare and evaluate the outcome of sutureless, glue-less CAG with autologous in situ blood coagulum versus CAG with sutures for primary, advanced pterygium...

The surgical treatment for aortic diseases remains a challenge for any cardiac surgeon. The use of sutureless ring connector in aortic anastomosis can simplify the procedure and shorten anastomosis time. Therefore, we developed a novel device for sutureless aortic anastomosis. A series of experiments were carried out for tensile and leakproof-capacity assessments to verify the feasibility of the ring connector by using fresh swine aorta samples. in vivo test, the ring connector was implanted in 6 swine with follow-up of 6 months...

BACKGROUND: Aortic valve replacement in a patient with an aortic homograft can be very challenging, especially when concomitant mitral valve surgery needs to be performed. CASE PRESENTATION: We report a case of implantation of a sutureless aortic valve bioprosthesis combined with mitral valve replacement in a patient with a severely calcified aortic homograft where conventional valve replacement was technically unfeasible. CONCLUSIONS: We believe that sutureless AVR is a viable option especially for young patients with a high surgical risk where conventional valve replacement cannot be achieved...

OBJECTIVE: In recent years, improved survival rates of extremely low birth weight infants (ELBWIs) have led to an increasing number of enterostomy performed for those with meconium obstruction of prematurity (MOP)(1,2), spontaneous intestinal perforation (SIP)(3,4). To prevent serious stoma-related complications such as stoma side perforation, prolapse, fall and surgical site infection, we introduce our new "sutureless enterostomy" technique. METHODS: We present the procedures in detail...

Best timing for permanent pacemaker implantation to treat complete atrioventricular block (AVB) after cardiac surgery is unclear, as late pacemaker dependency was found low in recent observational studies. This study aimed to identify factors associated with spontaneous recovery from AVB. In a prospective and observational cohort, all patients who underwent cardiothoracic surgery during a 14-month-period were included (n = 1,200). Risk factors of postoperative AVB were assessed by logistic regression. Among patients who developed AVB, variables associated with recovery from AVB were assessed by Cox and logistic regression...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of hypo-attenuated leaflet thickening (HALT) and reduced leaflet motion (RLM) is unknown in surgically implanted bioprostheses because systematic investigation of HALT and/or RLM is limited to a few catheter-based valves. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of HALT and RLM by cardiac computed tomography in patients who underwent surgical aortic valve replacement and received a Perceval sutureless aortic valve bioprosthesis. METHODS AND RESULTS: This was a single-center prospective observational study that included 47 patients (83...
