Minimally Invasive Direct Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement in Mitral Annular Calcification Implantation for Heavy Annular Calcification
January 14, 2020
January 9, 2020
Prakash P. Punjabi of the National Heart and Lung Institute and the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London, United Kingdom, presents a discussion on using midline sternotomy for mitral surgery.
December 20, 2019
The readmission rate after mitral valve surgery was 17% among over 75,000 patients in the National Readmissions Database. Predictors included extended initial LOS, chronic lung or renal disease, and low hospital procedural volume for mitral surgery. The mean cost of readmission was over $15,000.
Standardized Subannular Repair for Type IIIb Functional Mitral Regurgitation in a Minimally Invasive Mitral Valve Surgery Setting
December 4, 2019
In this study, the authors report on the outcome of mitral valve repair, applying subannular repair for functional mitral valve regurgitation. Included are 108 patients who underwent annuloplasty with subannular repair (n=60) versus patients with annuloplasty only (n=48).
Minimally Invasive CABG Combined With Mitral Valve Repair and Left Ventricle Aneurysm Repair Through Left Anterior Thoracotomy
December 3, 2019
This video demonstrates a minimally invasive CABG combined with mitral valve repair and left ventricle aneurysm repair through a left anterior thoracotomy.
November 19, 2019
In this video, the authors describe a modified transatrial transcatheter mitral valve replacement approach to decrease the risk of left ventricular outflow tract obstruction in patients with severe mitral annular calcification.
November 14, 2019
Interesting succinct note on a major issue, noting a possible association between cardiopulmonary bypass and this common complication.
November 12, 2019
Dr Om P Yadava and Dr Carlos Mestres discuss mitral annular calcification.
A Treatise on the Surgical Management and a Suggested Amendment of Surgical Classification of Left Ventricular Rupture Following Mitral Valve Replacement
November 6, 2019
Gudala and associates performed a literature review of 108 patients who sustained left ventricular rupture following mitral valve replacement. The incidence in pooled data was 0.72%. The authors expounded on the mechanisms, classification, repair techniques, and treatment outcomes of this dreadful complication.
November 5, 2019
The authors present a totally endoscopic bileaflet mitral valve repair case where they used a transesophageal echo technique to predetermine the optimal length of the synthetic chordae for the repair.
