PURPOSE To identify clinical characteristics, treatment modalities, and course of spontaneous rectus sheath hematoma (SRSH). In the literature, there is no prospective clinical trial that is intended for treatment in clinical research. METHODS Seventeen SRSH patients diagnosed and treated between March 2012 and March 2014 at the general Surgery Department(More)
Recently, extra-anatomical bypass surgery has been widely used in complicated adult aortic coarctation cases with concomitant intracardiac repair. Stent implantation has been widely used for primary aortic coarctation as well. The procedure has been shown to be effective with long term follow ups. However, failed stent implantations like stent fracture and(More)
BACKGROUND The deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA) technique has been used in aortic arch and isthmus hypoplasia for many years. However, with the demonstration of the deleterious effects of prolonged DHCA, selective cerebral perfusion (SCP) has started to be used in aortic arch repair. For SCP, perfusion via the innominate artery route is generally(More)
Aneurysmal circumflex coronary artery fistula connected to the coronary sinus is a rare clinical entity that usually remains asymptomatic until later in life. The timing of surgical treatment for asymptomatic patients is crucial. The decision to leave or exclude the aneurysmatic coronary artery following ligation of the fistula is controversial. Herein, we(More)
INTRODUCTION A coronary artery anomaly precludes the use of a trans-annular patch in right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) reconstruction. Herein we present three patients with coronary artery anomalies who underwent total corrective operations without using a conduit. METHODS Between 2007 and 2010, 84 patients with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) were(More)
BACKGROUND We present a rare case of an anomalous origin of the right subclavian artery (SA) from the pulmonary artery (PA) associated with ventricular septal defect (VSD) and aortic coarctation. CASE REPORT Critical aortic coarctation and VSD were diagnosed in a neonate, and coarctation angioplasty was successfully performed. Severe cardiac failure(More)
