Primary cardiac sarcoma is an uncommon disease. In particular, leiomyosarcoma of cardiovascular origin is extremely rare. Half of all cardiac leiomyosarcomas are located in the left atrium. Due to the extreme rarity of left atrial leiomyosarcoma, there is no great experience in its management. This review includes a report of a case of left atrial(More)
OBJECTIVES There are controversial opinions about the expediency of performance of the surgical angioplasty of the left main coronary artery (LMCA) and/or proximal segment of the right coronary artery (RCA) in rare cases of isolated lesion or with limited involving of distal coronary branches. One of the many fears restraining a wider performance of this(More)
Surgical patch angioplasty is procedure for lesions of the main coronary arteries but it is not performed frequently because of technical complexity and uncertainty about final results. We present experience of SPA for treatment of main coronary artery lesions and assess medium-term outcomes after this procedure. Since November 1998 13 patients have(More)
OBJECTIVES Resection of a leiomyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava (IVC) requires venovenous bypass, especially if IVC clamping above the hepatic veins is planned. This report describes the application of external skin surface cooling for off-pump resection of a primary IVC leiomyosarcoma adjacent to the hepatic veins with graft IVC reconstruction in(More)
Based on the rich clinical material (405 patients), the authors have assessed the most common blood and crystalloid cardioplegic techniques by applying the criteria which do not apply to those of myocardial protection adequacy. Differences have been found between the methods in the volumes of blood loss, the number of patients operated on without utilizing(More)
The combination of coronary artery disease and its complications (ischemic mitral regurgitation etc.) with the aneurysm of the descending thoracic aorta is not a rare case. The single-stage correction of coronary/intracardiac/aortic lesions may be considered as a way of managing the combined patients. Simultaneous multi-vessel coronary artery bypass(More)
