As the execution of percutaneous edge-to-edge repair increases, so does the need for surgical treatment of failed procedures. Mitral valve surgery after failed percutaneous edge-to-edge repair can be complex and the feasibility of surgical mitral valve repair/replacement depends on the patient’s underlying systemic conditions and the time elapsing between the primary percutaneous and the secondary surgical procedures. In this setting, a minimally-invasive approach may enable complex valve surgery promoting both faster recovery and increased patient’s satisfaction.
Reconstruction of Complex Proximal Aortic Dissections with Aortic Insufficiency Using Aortic Ring Annuloplasty
January 4, 2022
Proximal aortic dissection with root involvement and aortic insufficiency can be difficult to repair; in this video, the history of reparative approaches and a potentially improved technique involving aortic ring annuloplasty are presented.
