Floating thrombus in the proximal aortic arch.
TLDR
A case involving a large floating thrombus that originated in the proximal aortic arch and extended into the left subclavian artery and the descending aorta is reported, and the surgical management is discussed. Expand
Altered patterns of gene expression in response to chronic atrial fibrillation.
TLDR
The expression of Bcl-2, AT2 receptor, p21, and p27 were consistent with a significant role in the apoptosis of cardiac myocytes in the patients with chronic AF. Expand
Rupture of ascending aorta secondary to tuberculous aortitis.
TLDR
A case of rupture of the ascending aorta after tuberculous aortitis in a 53-year-old man without a history of tuberculosis or evidence of a primary foci who underwent cardiopulmonary resuscitation due to severe hemoptysis with subsequent cardiac arrest is reported. Expand
Aortic valve reconstruction with leaflet replacement and sinotubular junction fixation: early and midterm results.
TLDR
The data from the first 5 years after AVRS reveal good clinical and hemodynamic outcomes, suggesting that AVRS is a new alternative technique to the practice of replacement with stented bioprostheses and mechanical prostheses, however, whether the reconstructed aortic valve represents a truly long-term valve remains to be demonstrated.

Cost-Effectiveness of Carotid Endarterectomy versus Carotid Artery Stenting for Treatment of Carotid Artery Stenosis
TLDR
The pre-procedure cost was high in the CEA group, but the cost from procedure onset to discharge, including the resource cost, was significantly lower in this group, and the total hospitalization cost was not different between theCEA and the CAS groups. Expand
Simplified surgical approach to improve surgical outcomes in the center with a small volume of acute type A aortic dissection surgery
TLDR
Simplified surgical approach could provide a reasonable surgical outcome in acute type A aortic dissection surgery in a center with a small volume of acute aorta dissection operations, retrospectively investigated. Expand
Tricuspid leaflet augmentation to eliminate residual regurgitation in severe functional tricuspid regurgitation.
TLDR
The anterior leaflet and the anterior half of the posterior leaflet are augmented with an elliptic pericardial patch before implantation of a rigid annuloplasty ring and this procedure achieved complete elimination of TR with sufficient coaptation length in tricuspid valve leaflets for all patients. Expand
Surgery for anomalous origin of the left main coronary artery from the right sinus of Valsalva, in association with left main stenosis.
TLDR
A 15-year-old adolescent boy was diagnosed with anomalous origin of the left main coronary artery from the right sinus of Valsalva and surgery was offered in view of his young age and the uncertain prospective course of the disease. Expand
Chronic atrial fibrillation associated with somatic mitochondrial DNA mutations in human atrial tissue
TLDR
In patients with cAF, mtDNA mutations, including small deletions and tissue-specific length heteroplasmic mutations, occurred in both mtDNA control and coding regions, which strongly suggest that mt DNA mutations may play a crucial role in atrial dysfunction in patients withcAF. Expand
Aortic Valve Replacement Using Continuous Suture Technique in Patients with Aortic Valve Disease
TLDR
The simple CS method is useful and secure for AVR in patients with aortic valve disease, and it may minimize surgical complications, as neither pledgets nor braided sutures are used. Expand
