Vascular Showcase: 6 Procedures to Elevate Your Expertise

Wednesday, July 6, 2022

We’re halfway through the year, and the international cardiothoracic community has been busy sharing techniques and practices with peers around the world via CTSNet. Over the last few weeks, we rounded up the most popular cardiac and thoracic videos published so far this year. Now it’s the vascular specialty’s turn!

Do you have a favorite? Be sure to let us and your fellow CTSNet users know in the comment section below!

If you have a great cardiac surgical technique or procedure to share, we invite you to submit it for publication here on CTSNet. We welcome year-round submissions of high-quality written and recorded content that fosters education and promotes improved patient care across the global CT community.

Check out our other specialty showcases of the most popular cardiac, thoracic, and congenital content in the first half of 2022 as well.


1. Operative Repair of Aortic Dissection with an Entry Tear on the Lesser Curve of the Arch
Charles Roberts

While aortic dissections can be rare, knowing how to perform an operative repair on one is vital. This video shows an example of one such procedure with the added wrinkle of there being an entry tear in the arch.


2. Anatomic Repair of Congenitally Corrected Transposition: 1.5V Repair with Hemi-Mustard and Rastelli Procedures
James Tweddell, Alan ODonnell

This operative technique video demonstrates the anatomic repair of congenitally corrected transposition with ventricular septal defect, pulmonary atresia, and mild right ventricular hypoplasia in a two-year-old.


3. Superior Vena Cava Off-Pump Surgery
Leonardo Duranti, Luigi Rolli

Complex cases are an opportunity for surgeons to unitize unique skills that they have picked up over time. This video shows an interesting off-pump mediastinal complex oncologic vascular operation for a thymic neuroendocrine carcinoma.


4. Addressing the Complex Aortic Root Patient: Streamlining the Bentall Procedure (Webinar Recording)
Eric Roselli, Joseph Bavaria, Kim de la Cruz

In this webinar recording—a collaboration between CTSNet and Edwards Lifesciences—surgeons Eric Roselli, Joseph Bavaria, and Kim de la Cruz discuss early experiences with the KONECT RESILIA aortic valved conduit and RESILIA tissue treatment data.


5. Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome Following Trauma
Oleg Orlov

Median arcuate ligament sydrome is a known condition. However, it is a rare occurrence following trauma. In this video, we demonstrate the repair of MAC in a patient who suffered chronic abdominal pain for seventeen years following MVC.


6. Renal Autotransplantation for Nutcracker Syndrome
Oleg Orlov

Nutcracker syndrome is a rare condition that leads to venous congestion and broad symptoms that make it challenging to diagnose and treat. This video demonstrates one of our approaches to this condition.
