Minimally Invasive CABG Combined With Mitral Valve Repair and Left Ventricle Aneurysm Repair Through Left Anterior Thoracotomy
December 3, 2019
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.
October 16, 2019
The authors present their technique of adjustable pericardial lock for complex mitral valve repair.
Measuring Chordae Tension During Transapical Neochordae Implantation: Toward Understanding Objective Consequences of Mitral Valve Repair
October 8, 2019
An interesting pilot experiment on attempting to quantify the optimum disposition of neochordae in transapical intervention for severe mitral regurgitation.
Transcatheter or Surgical Repair for Degenerative Mitral Regurgitation in Elderly Patients: A Propensity-Weighted Analysis
October 6, 2019
The authors address appropriate use of the transcatheter clip to treat degenerative mitral regurgitation in elderly low to moderate risk patients.
