Surgical Management of Atrial Fibrillation in Patients Undergoing Myectomy for Obstructive Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy
April 5, 2022
This video provides an overview of the prevalence and clinical impact of atrial fibrillation in patients with obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) presenting for septal myectomy and describes an approach to surgical management of these patients and the corresponding operative techniques.

This video describes the authors’ surgical technique to treat severe symptomatic hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy through a median sternotomy. This technique is mainly inspired from the Morrow septal myectomy. The author will highlight the main anatomical landmarks that drive the surgical resection and that must be kept in the surgeon’s mind to allow for a safe and efficient surgical procedure. Finally, the video will discuss when it is advisable to add an edge-to-edge mitral stich during the modified Morrow myectomy and the author’s way of doing so.

Complex composite grafting can occasionally be required for total arterial revascularization in patients who need multiple grafts, so it is important for surgeons to learn as many techniques as possible. This video shows how to use double Y grafting utilizing bilateral IMA and a radial artery with endarterectomy to increase a patient’s chance at long-term survival.

In this video, a twenty-year-old woman with severe aortic prosthetic dysfunction undergoes a fourth-time sternotomy with modified pulmonary autograft (Ross) aortic root replacement and a revision of pervious ascending-to-descending aortic bypass graft.

One of the main worries with aortic valve-in-valve procedures (ViV) is coronary occlusion. This is a devastating complication with a greater than 50 percent mortality rate. This video describes a surgical alternative to the interventional Basilica procedure in a high-risk patient for ViV because of a very low coronary implantation.
