Intimal Detachment of the Left Main Coronary Artery in a Marfan Patient with Acute Aortic Dissection: An Alternative Technique for Coronary Revascularization
A Marfan patient with dissection and intimal detachment of the LMCA that was caused by acute aortic dissection involving the left aorta sinus and that was reconstructed using a short reversed saphenous vein graft is reported. Expand
Two-stage Surgical Treatment of a Giant Solitary Fibrous Tumor Occupying the Thoracic Cavity
Successful resection of a large pleural SFT in a 39-year-old man without any complications is reported using a 2-stage approach, in which ligation of the feeding vessels through small another operative window was the first step. Expand
Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation in Elderly Patients with the Cox Maze Procedure Concurrently with Other Cardiac Operations
In patients aged >70 years, concurrent CMP may be associated with a high rate of sinus rhythm conversion without increased surgical risk, despite the added complexity of the main cardiac procedure. Expand
A Case of Glutaric Aciduria Type 1
Aortic Arch Endarterectomy Associated with On-Pump Cardiac Surgery in Patients with a Mobile Arch Atheroma
In patients with severe grade V atherosclerosis in the aortic arch, performing endarterectomy simultaneously with primary cardiac surgery may be justified as a way to reduce the risk of peripheral embolism, including cerebrovascular accidents, with minimal additional surgical risk. Expand
Simple Anastomotic Techniques for Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery in Patients with Small Coronary Arteries or a Marked Size Discrepancy Between the Coronary Artery and Graft
These anastomotic suture techniques were applied in patients requiring coronary artery bypass graft surgery, achieving an early angiographic patency rate of 100%. Expand
The Correlation Between Adipose Component in the LA Appendage and Recurrence of Atrial Fibrillation after Modified Cox-Maze III Operation from Human Tissue Pathologic Analysis
Methods: We reviewed 161 patients’ LAA tissues pathology from which underwent modified CM III operation and analyzed the relation between adipose component (%, pathology slide section) and theExpand
