Topical hemostatic agents are used in conjunction with conventional procedures to reduce blood loss. They are often used in cardiothoracic surgery, which is particularly prone to bleeding risks. Variation in their use exists because detailed policy and practice guidelines reflecting the current medical evidence have not been developed to promote best surgical practice in this setting. To address this need, the Society for the Advancement of Blood Management convened an International Hemostatic Expert Panel...

OBJECTIVES: Aortic root replacement using a composite graft is the treatment of choice for a large variety of aortic root conditions with a diseased aortic valve. The objective of the current study was to evaluate the long-term results of this procedure. METHODS: Between 1978 and 2010, 1045 patients aged 58.7 ± 13.6 years underwent aortic root composite graft replacement using the following techniques: 95 Bentall operation; 926 the "button technique;" 24 the Cabrol technique...

The Society of Thoracic Surgeons Clinical Practice Guidelines are intended to assist physicians and other health care providers in clinical decision making by describing a range of generally acceptable approaches for the diagnosis, management, or prevention of specific diseases or conditions. These guidelines should not be considered inclusive of all proper methods of care or exclusive of other methods of care reasonably directed at obtaining the same results. Moreover, these guidelines are subject to change over time, without notice...

BACKGROUND: Whether delaying coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) after myocardial infarction (MI) is associated with better outcomes or is an unnecessary use of health care resources is unclear. This study investigated the relationship between MI-to-CABG timing on in-hospital death. METHODS: From the Northern New England Cardiovascular Disease Study Group (NNE) Cardiac Surgery Registry we identified 3,060 isolated CABG patients with prior MI from 2008 to 2014...

Cardiac surgical care of patients continued to evolve rapidly in 2016. In this article, 3 topics of considerable change are discussed based on recent publications. The first topic reviews the potential risks and benefits of newly instituted low-risk percutaneous aortic valve replacement. The second topic reviews the increasing utilization of more extensive arch replacements in acute type A dissection. The final topic reviews current trends and justification for changes in patterns of use of cardioplegia options...

The Society of Thoracic Surgeons Task Force on Resuscitation After Cardiac Surgery provides this professional society perspective on resuscitation in patients who arrest after cardiac surgery. This document was created using a multimodal methodology for evidence generation and includes information from existing guidelines, from the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation, from our own structured literature reviews on issues particular to cardiac surgery, and from an international survey on resuscitation hosted by CTSNet...

Continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) have emerged as the standard of care for advanced heart failure patients requiring long-term mechanical circulatory support. Evidence-based clinical management of LVAD-supported patients is becoming increasingly important for optimizing outcomes. In this state-of-art review, we propose key elements in managing patients supported with the new continuous-flow LVADs. Although most of the presented information is largely based on investigator experience during the 1,300-patient HeartMate II clinical trial, many of the discussed principles can be applied to other emerging devices as well...

BACKGROUND: To better understand the role of acute normovolemic hemodilution (ANH) in a surgical setting with high risk of bleeding, we analyzed all randomized controlled trials (RCTs) in the setting of cardiac surgery that compared ANH with standard intraoperative care. The aim was to assess the incidence of ANH-related number of allogeneic red blood cell units (RBCu) transfused. Secondary outcomes included the rate of allogeneic blood transfusion and estimated total blood loss. METHODS: Twenty-nine RCTs for a total of 2439 patients (1252 patients in the ANH group and 1187 in the control group) were included in our meta-analysis using PubMed/MEDLINE, Cochrane Controlled Trials Register, and EMBASE...

A young adult man presented to the emergency department reporting a convincing story for acute aortic dissection, a disorder in which diagnostic evaluations should occur in parallel with pharmacologic management. Transesophageal echocardiography demonstrated normal cardiac and aortic structures. Additional history was notable for extensive travel across numerous medical facilities with associated misrepresentation of his diagnosis and treatment. The patient was willing to undergo unpleasant and invasive procedures and succeeded at least once in the past to deceive clinicians to the point of performing a median sternotomy...

OBJECTIVE: The management strategy for type A acute aortic dissection (AAD) with intramural hematoma (IMH) remains controversial. The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of emergency surgery and medical treatment for patients with acute type A IMH. METHODS: One hundred seventy-one patients with acute type A IMH, whose average age was 69.4 years (range, 39-90 years) were divided into 3 groups: groups I and II consisted of 74 and 33 patients undergoing emergency surgery for complicated and uncomplicated type A IMH, respectively, and group III comprised 66 patients who were treated conservatively...

BACKGROUND: Sufficiently large, prospective randomized trials comparing suction drainage and nonsuction drainage are lacking. The aim of the present study was to compare the effects of suction drainage and nonsuction drainage on the postoperative course in patients who have undergone lung resection. METHODS: This prospective, randomized trial included patients undergoing different types of lung resections. On the day of surgery, suction drainage at -20 cm H2O was used...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether mediastinal lymph node dissection improves survival compared with mediastinal lymph node sampling in patients undergoing resection for N0 or nonhilar N1, T1, or T2 non-small cell lung cancer. METHODS: Patients with non-small cell lung cancer underwent sampling of 2R, 4R, 7, and 10R for right-sided tumors and 5, 6, 7, and 10L for left-sided tumors. If all tumors were negative for malignancy, patients were randomized to no further lymph node sampling (mediastinal lymph node sampling) or complete mediastinal lymph node dissection...

BACKGROUND: Continuous coronary perfusion during Norwood reconstruction offers the theoretic advantage of less postoperative cardiac dysfunction. The avoidance of a cardiac and circulatory arrest period allows time for a more deliberate aortic reconstruction while the heart remains beating. This single-center study was designed to compare patient results using this method vs standard cardiac arrest for Norwood reconstruction. METHODS: A retrospective review was done of 32 patients undergoing Norwood reconstruction from November 2004 to July 2011...

The appropriate selection of lung transplant recipients is an important determinant of outcomes. This consensus document is an update of the recipient selection guidelines published in 2006. The Pulmonary Council of the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) organized a Writing Committee of international experts to provide consensus opinion regarding the appropriate timing of referral and listing of candidates for lung transplantation. A comprehensive search of the medical literature was conducted with the assistance of a medical librarian...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) provides days to weeks of support for patients with respiratory, cardiac, or combined cardiopulmonary failure. Since ECMO was first reported in 1974, nearly 70,000 runs of ECMO have been implemented, and the use of ECMO in adults increased by more than 400% from 2006 to 2011 in the United States. A variety of factors, including the 2009 influenza A epidemic, results from recent clinical trials, and improvements in ECMO technology, have motivated this increased use in adults...
