Simplified surgical approach to improve surgical outcomes in the center with a small volume of acute type A aortic dissection surgery
Simplified surgical approach could provide a reasonable surgical outcome in acute type A aortic dissection surgery in a center with a small volume of acute aorta dissection operations, retrospectively investigated. Expand
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
Haemodynamic improvement of older, previously replaced mechanical mitral valves by removal of the subvalvular pannus in redo cardiac surgery.
Four women who had mechanical mitral valves inserted greater than or equal to 20 years earlier and who presented with circular pannus that protruded into the lower margin of the valve ring but did not impede leaflet motion were treated. 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
