AIM Aim of our study was to evaluate multidetector 64-slice spiral computed tomography (MSCT) as an alternative to traditional coronary angiography (CA) to detect concomitant coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients initially admitted for non-coronary surgical procedures. METHODS We have analyzed data of 380 consecutive patients operated from 2006 to(More)
BACKGROUND Left atrial ablation is a surgical standard technique for the treatment of persistent or chronic atrial fibrillation (p-AF and c-AF, respectively).Objective The aim of the study is to evaluate midterm results of left atrial ablation according to modified Maze procedure in patients affected by p-AF or c-AF and concomitant mitral or aortic valve(More)
Several methods have been proposed to avoid cerebral damage during aortic arch surgery. Antegrade, bilateral, selective cerebral perfusion is probably the most efficient one, although it has some drawbacks, such as air or particulate embolism risk, limitation in operative field visibility, and interactions with surgical maneuvers. We describe a surgical(More)
Rupture of the descending aorta is a life-threatening complication requiring emergency intervention. The endovascular approach (TEVAR) has been recently introduced to treat the descending aorta in the emergency setting, resulting in better early postoperative outcome as compared with traditional surgery. However, when the pathology involves the aortic arch(More)
Pseudoaneurysm may be defined as a tear through the arterial wall with persistent flow outside the vessel into a space contained by the surrounding tissue. Aortic pseudoaneurysm may occur after surgery for acute aortic dissection and commonly occurs at sites of aortic wall disruption. The arterial site cannulation and anastomosis lines are the main(More)
BACKGROUND Subcommissural aortic annuloplasty (SCA) has been recommended for treatment of functional aortic regurgitation (AR), but its association with sinotubular junction adjustment is still controversial. METHODS Sixty patients with moderate or severe functional AR secondary to proximal ascending aorta aneurysm operated on between May 2004 and(More)
