Case Report: Repair of Type A Aortic Dissection After TAVR With an Uncovered Thoracic Endograft Without General Anesthesia
January 19, 2021
January 8, 2021
Froede et al. present a new simplified technique to determine commissural orientation in bicuspid aortic valves using echocardiography. Their technique using a line between the center of the nonfused and fused sinuses led to reproducible results, whereas the use of the coaptation center led to misleading results.
Two Decades of Valve-Sparing Root Reimplantation in Tricuspid Aortic Valve: Impact of Aortic Regurgitation and Cusp Repair
December 22, 2020
Tamer et al. analyzed the influence of preoperative aortic regurgitation (AR) on the necessity of cusp repair during valve-sparing reimplantation (VSR). They focused on patients with tricuspid aortic valves (TAV) and evaluated the impact of AR and cusp repair on long-term outcomes.
Mortality in Low-Risk Patients With Aortic Stenosis Undergoing Transcatheter or Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement: A Reconstructed Individual Patient Data Meta-Analysis
December 18, 2020
Celik et al. present a meta-analysis regarding the outcome of TAVI implantation with respect to the survival six years after the implantation and compared it to the outcome of surgical aortic valve replacement.
Reoperative Valve-Sparing Root Replacement and Pulmonary Homograft Reconstruction of RVOT Following Pediatric Ross Procedure
November 9, 2020
Valve-sparing root replacement with neo-aortic valve repair is feasible in patients presenting with late aneurysmal growth and dilatation of the neo-aortic root following a pediatric Ross procedure, even in the presence of concomitant valvular disease requiring replacement or reconstruction.
#4: CTSNet Beat Podcast: EXCEL and the European Guidelines, Percutaneous Interventions With Coronary Bypass, Aortic Emergency During COVID-19, and Osimertinib in Positive Resected Cancer
November 4, 2020
In this Beat podcast episode, Joel Dunning discusses the EXCEL trial and European guidelines, percutaneous interventions with coronary bypass surgery, management of aortic emergencies during COVID-19, and osimertinib in positive resected cancer.
October 28, 2020
Tom C. Nguyen, Patrick McCarthy, and Borut Gersak discuss indications for and the benefits of using sutureless valves.
October 20, 2020
In this tutorial video, the authors present the clinical case of a young patient with severe aortic regurgitation that underwent a bicuspid aortic valve repair with external annuloplasty.
September 30, 2020
Dr David and colleagues reported the long-term outcomes of aortic valve reimplantation in 465 patients between 1989 and 2018. Clinical and echocardiographic follow-up was available in 98% for a mean duration of 10 ± 6 years.

September 28, 2020
This video demonstrates a Konno-Rastan aortoventriculoplasty for aortic valve replacement in an adult with previous mediastinal irradiation.
