Heart failure

November 19, 2021
Impressive  decrease of death (by approximaltely 40% !) in 2 years from a small RCT in elective structural heart surgery for degeneration. The assumption is  a benefit  by improvement in right ventricular dynamics
October 21, 2021
A large randomised double-blinded trial reporting a considerable benefit ( 0.79 HR with very small p and supporting confidence intervals) of the Boehringer SGLPT-2 inhibitor regardless of presence of formal diagnosis of diabetes.
October 1, 2021
A scholarly narrative on the utility of quantifying the performance of the right ventricle: the RV has been hitherto empirically assessed in many clinical setups.
July 6, 2021
This is a step-by-step description of minimally invasive HVAD-Implantation using a transaxillary access for outflow graft anastomosis, which allows VAD-surgery without the need for rib or sternal transection in contrast to right anterior thoracotomy or partial sternotomy approaches.
May 25, 2021
An authoritative, scholarly but very readable review of the evolution of mechanical circulatory support of the left ventricle from the non-surgical standpoint.
April 28, 2021
This study assessed the impact of frailty in patients with advanced heart failure on clinical outcomes after heart transplantation (HTx).
April 20, 2021
The case of minimally invasive repair of large left ventricle inferior pseudoaneurysm and concomitant CABG procedure is presented in this video.
April 16, 2021
A most comprehensive practice guideline, relevant not only to surgeons involved in VA ECMO, but also all cardiac and thoracic colleagues and perioperative clinicians.
April 15, 2021
In the special April issue of JACC Imaging focusing on secondary mitral regurgitation (SMR), a number of articles on outcomes after transcatheter edge-to-edge repair (TEER) are reported. Specifically, the concept of proportionate vs disproportionate SMR was explored.

This video demonstrates the use of a 3D model to tailor a Dacron patch during surgical ventricular restoration.
