Aortic valve disease

July 30, 2020
Complex reoperative arch and root surgery can be safely performed using moderate hypothermic circulatory arrest with selective antegrade cerebral perfusion along with intermittent upper and lower body retrograde perfusion.

This video demonstrates a fifth sternotomy for triple valve replacement via combined extended Manouguian and Guiraudon vertical transseptal approach.

The authors discuss the operative steps for homograft aortic root replacement in complex aortic root abscess in a patient with prosthetic valve endocarditis.

This is a retrospective cohort analysis of more than 500 patients undergoing the David I procedure. They specifically looked into the outcome of 50 patients with bicuspid aortic valve undergoing this procedure.

This video demonstrates a minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass grafting associated to transcatheter aortic valve implantation through a left anterior minithoracotomy in the fourth intercostal space.

The Ancona Minimally Invasive and Transcatheter Cardiac Surgery course's recording is now available. An international faculty shares their vision of cardiac surgery and more during the two-day event.

This video demonstrates a simple technique to convert a mechanical Bentall to a biological Bentall by removing the mechanical valve leaflets and placing a biological valve within the root graft above the retained mechanical valve housing, thus avoiding coronary reimplantation and reimplantation of a new aortic graft.

As TAVR is used in progressively lower-risk cohorts, management of device failure will become increasingly important. This study reports the largest series of patients receiving a surgical reoperation after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) using the STS Adult Cardiac Surgery Database.

This manuscript by Kusadokoro et al. retrospectively looks into the outcome of patients who underwent either planned or rescue double arterial cannulation in surgery for type A aortic dissection. The propensity match analysis proofed non-inferiority of double arterial cannulation regarding one- and five-year survival.
