BACKGROUND Although type B aortic dissection has been treated with beta blockers to lower the arterial blood pressure (BP), there has been little evidences about reduction in heart rate (HR). We assessed whether tight HR control improved the outcome of medical treatment in patients with aortic dissection. METHODS AND RESULTS From 1997 to 2005, 171(More)
Thirteen patients have undergone surgical treatment for transposition of the great arteries (TGA) with intact ventricular septum (IVS) associated with left ventricular outflow obstruction (LVOTO) in our institute. Ages at operation ranged from three months to six years (mean 9.2 +/- 4.7 months). Of these patients, seven had dynamic type LVOTO (group I), and(More)
Derlin-disc model Björk-Shiley valve prosthesis was reoperated due to the disc defacement. One had admitted cerebral embolism which was suggested due to the prosthetic valve malfunction of aortic position and the other had congestive heart failure due to the malfunction of mitral position. These patients had implanted Derlin-disc model Björk-Shiley valve(More)
Two infants less than 4 months of age underwent repair of apical muscular VSD with left ventriculotomy. First case was 3 months old boy who had already undergone enlargement of the hypoplastic aortic arch with subclavian flap aortoplasty and pulmonary artery banding because of the associated aortic coarctation. Second case was 4 months old Down syndrome(More)
We have successfully performed a two-stage Jatene procedure in four patients who showed severe anatomical right ventricular dysfunction after atrial switch (Mustard or Senning) operation for transposition of the great arteries. All four patients developed an adequate left ventricular pressure for the arterial switch operation by one or two-stage pulmonary(More)
A six-year-old boy with pulmonary stenosis was hospitalized in order to examine the cause of pulmonary stenosis. The right-ventriculography showed a large shadow defect in the right ventricular outflow tract. But the echocardiography showed the cystic tumor, which was covered with thin wall and had echo-free space in it, in the right ventricular outflow(More)
A one-month-old baby with total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) type Ib underwent a total correction with a pedicled right atrial (RA) flap, which was made by incising the RA wall in a quadrangular configuration. The common pulmonary vein (PV) was cut back into the left atrium (LA). Then the RA flap was sutured along the limbus of PV recess(More)
A 34-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of sudden respiratory failure caused by massive pulmonary embolism. After arrival in the hospital, the patient experienced cardiopulmonary arrest, and we promptly initiated percutaneous cardiopulmonary support, in addition to sternal compressions for cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Computed tomography(More)
Unicuspid aortic valve is a rare anomaly. We report 2 cases of successfully treated unicuspid valves with aortic dilatations by using a tricuspidization and reimplantation procedure. Two men, 35 and 39 years old, with severe aortic regurgitation and stenosis received this procedure. The sclerotic portion of a unicuspid valve, including 2 rudimentary(More)
From January, 1989, to December, 1991, 36 consecutive patients with total anomalous pulmonary venous return (TAPVR) underwent intracardiac repair (ICR) in our institute. We studied the relationship between the size of atrial septal defect (ASD), age and preoperative left ventricular end-diastolic diameter (LVEDD) in 28 patients with regression analysis.(More)
