Left ventricular aneurysm repair: an assessment of surgical treatment modalities.
TLDR
Left ventricular aneurysm repair is an important therapeutic intervention and can be performed with reliable results, regardless of repair method, either linear or circular.
Acute renal failure following open heart surgery: risk factors and prognosis
TLDR
Recognizing risk factors permits the timely institution of proper treatment, which is the key to reducing untoward outcomes, and recognizes the importance of recognizing perioperative risk factors, which often results in high morbidity and mortality.
The Sorin Freedom SOLO stentless tissue valve: early outcomes after aortic valve replacement.
TLDR
The Freedom SOLO aortic bioprosthesis is an easy-to-implant valve with excellent hemodynamic performance and the thrombocytopenia appears to be a transient laboratory finding.
Arch repair with unilateral antegrade cerebral perfusion.
TLDR
Arch repair with antegrade cerebral perfusion through right brachial artery has excellent neurological results, provides technical simplicity and optimal repair without time restraints, does not necessitate deep hypothermia and requires shorter CPB and operation times.
Aortic arch repair with right brachial artery perfusion.
TLDR
The technique of low flow antegrade selective cerebral perfusion through the right brachial artery may be used for the vast majority of aortic aneurysms and dissections requiring arch repair and is as safe as other techniques for cerebral protection.
Pregnancy after mechanical mitral valve replacement.
TLDR
There were no congenital malformations or maternal mortality/morbidity during pregnancy in this series of 20 live births, probably due to the low-dose anticoagulation regimen used, however, antICOagulation cessation was associated with a high prosthetic valve thrombosis rate in the postpartum period, even when a new-generation prosthetic valves of unique design and expected low thromBogenicity was implanted.
Coronary artery anomalies in adult patients.
TLDR
Being usually asymptomatic, coronary artery anomalies are usually discovered incidentally in the adult population and are important for practical purposes, especially for interventional cardiologists, radiologists and cardiac surgeons, who should be aware of these anatomical entities.
The role of the preoperative screening of sleep apnoea by Berlin Questionnaire and Epworth Sleepiness Scale for postoperative atrial fibrillation.
TLDR
Preoperative questionnaire-based diagnosis of OSA by the simple BQ and ESS may be useful in predicting POAF, and can be easily incorporated into routine screening of surgical patients undergoing CABG operation.
Comparison of pulsatile and non-pulsatile cardiopulmonary bypass in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
TLDR
Pulsatile blood flow during cardiopulmonary bypass has a favorable influence on patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, who have high risk in open-heart surgery.
Left main coronary artery and aortic root compression associated with atrial septal defect and pulmonary hypertension.
TLDR
A child is presented with aortic root and LMCA compression due to dilated pulmonary trunk and causing angina like chest pain and electrocardiographic evidence of myocardial ischemia.
