Safety and efficacy of central cannulation through ascending aorta for type A aortic dissection.
TLDR
Direct central cannulation was successful for repair of type A dissection in selected patients and produced equal or superior surgical data to peripheral cannulation, thus providing one option in the approach to this condition.
Early and midterm outcome after off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting in patients with poor left ventricular function compared with patients with normal function
TLDR
There are higher mortality and cardiac event rates in patients with poor LV function than those with normal LV function at the midterm evaluation after OPCAB, which can be performed safely with the same quality in terms of the number of grafts and rate of complete revascularization.
A Novel Design of Posterior Leaflet Butterfly Resection for Mitral Valve Repair
A new design for posterior leaflet resection, “butterfly resection,” is proposed. It is a combination of two triangular resections in the prolapsing posterior leaflet segment. This method minimizes
Statin for prevention of atrial fibrillation after off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting in Japanese patients.
TLDR
Preoperative statin significantly reduces the incidence of AF after elective isolated off-pump CABG in Japanese patients, and is identified as independent predictors of postoperative AF.
Bilateral versus single internal thoracic artery grafting in dialysis patients with multivessel disease.
TLDR
In situ skeletonized BITA grafting provides better long-term survival in dialysis patients with multivessel disease.
Impact of Previous PCI on Hospital Mortality after Off-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting in Diabetic Patients with Multivessel Disease
TLDR
Previous PCI increases the risk of surgical mortality after off-pump CABG in diabetic patients with multivessel disease.
Does off-pump bilateral internal thoracic artery grafting increase operative risk in dialysis patients?
TLDR
In situ skeletonized BITA grafting is safe and feasible in dialysis patients with multivessel disease and not associated with impaired wound healing and 30-day mortality.
