BACKGROUND Cryopreserved valved homografts are the most commonly used conduit for right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction in children. Early need for reoperation owing to accelerated fibrocalcification has been observed in neonates and children younger than 3 years. A valved bovine jugular vein conduit, Contegra, has shown good early results, without(More)
Aims/Objectives The aim of this study is to review our results with the Edwards Intuity Elite sutureless bioprosthetic aortic valve. Methods The perioperative data of patients who underwent aortic valve replacement during the last year by sutureless bioprotheses (Edwards Intuity Elite, n = 7) were reviewed retrospectively and compared to those who received(More)
Results A total of 68 patients were included during the study period. The mean age was 61 ± 13 years, with 42 men (65%). Supracoronary ascending aorta replacement was the primary surgical procedure (in 31 patients, 46%). The mean cardiopulmonary bypass, cross clamp and circulatory arrest times were 3.2 ± 1.6, 2.1 ± 1.2 and 0.4 ± 0.2 hours. Acute renal(More)
Results There was no significant difference between two groups regarding pre and peri-operative parameters, although more patients in the eSVS mesh group had concomitant procedures (3, 23% vs. 2, 15%, P > 0.99). All SVG were patent in both groups at the end of the surgical procedure and TTFM values were similar. eSVS mesh group had a trend for longer(More)
A 65-year-old patient underwent double coronary artery bypass grafting using the left internal thoracic artery on the left anterior descending coronary artery and nitinol alloy mesh [external Saphenous Vein Support (eSVS)]-covered saphenous vein graft to the right posterior descending coronary artery. Transit-time flow measurements (TTFMs) were obtained on(More)
