Right Ventricular Function is Reduced During Cardiac Surgery Independent of Procedural Characteristics, Reoperative Status, or Pericardiotomy
April 29, 2019
The authors prospectively analyzed right ventricular (RV) function in 109 patients undergoing a broad range of cardiac surgeries. RV function was assessed at several time points by evaluating TAPSE and 2D longitudinal RV strain to evaluate long axis RV function, and fractional area exchange to evaluate global RV function.

This single-center study explored the relationship between spontaneous echo contrast (SEC) and the incidence of thromboembolism and CVA in 98 patients undergoing peripheral VA ECMO. Twenty-two percent of patients had SEC while they were on ECMO. Those exhibiting SEC had significantly higher rates of intracardiac thrombus (46% v.
Del Nido Cardioplegia can be safely administered in high-risk coronary artery bypass grafting surgery after acute myocardial infarction: a propensity matched comparison
February 5, 2015
In this recently published clinical study investigators from Columbia University, New York Presbyterian Hospital evaluated the safety of Del Nido cardioplegia in high-risk CABG surgery after AMI.

Deep hypothermia and cardioplegic myocardial arrest, with or without selective cerebral perfusion, is traditionally performed during aortic arch reconstruction. In this video, the authors describe a technique for selective cerebral perfusion combined with controlled coronary perfusion for hypoplastic aortic arch repair.
