When a left ventricular aneurysm leads to pulmonary congestive symptoms, aneurysmectomy may provide relief. This retrospective study included 269 patients who underwent aneurysmectomy between 1993 and 2002, by the classic Cooley operation in 164 and by Dor ventriculoplasty in 105. There were no...
Chronic total occlusion of the left main stem coronary artery is rare. This retrospective study was conducted to evaluate outcomes of coronary artery bypass grafting between June 1998 and June 2008 in patients with chronic left main stem total occlusion. There were 17 (0.025%) cases detected in...
Although hypothermic circulatory arrest with antegrade selective cerebral perfusion is used for cerebral protection, optimal perfusion characteristics are still unclear. Between May 2006 and March 2008, 26 patients (mean age, 68.9 years; 14 males) underwent thoracic aortic repair with mild...
Hyperhomocysteinemia and other major cardiovascular risk factors are associated with increased vascular oxidative stress. To access the effects preoperative plasma homocysteine levels and other atherosclerotic risk factors on myocardial ischemia-reperfusion injury after conventional coronary...
Background: Right heart failure is a frequent hemodynamic disturbance in pediatric cardiac patients. Besides inotropic and chronotropic drugs, fluid administration and inhaled nitric oxide, right ventricular mechanical assistance remains difficult to perform. A circulatory assist device adapted...
Large pericardial effusions develop in 30% of patients after cardiac surgery, and reach their maximum size after 10 days, with tamponade in 1%. The aim of this prospective randomized case-controlled study was to assess the effectiveness of a posterior pericardiotomy in preventing early and late...
A few cases of major complications after surgery for bronchogenic cyst have been reported. The purpose of this study was to analyze the complicated and unusual cases among 30 consecutive patients with bronchogenic cysts treated surgically at our institution between 1975 and 2007. There were 3...
A 79-year-old woman had a primary tumor of the pulmonary artery, which was initially diagnosed as chronic pulmonary thromboembolism. Multislice angio-computed tomography showed a solid mass in the right pulmonary artery. Radical resection of the tumor was achieved by right pneumonectomy via a...
Off-pump coronary surgery does not eliminate the risks of ischemia-reperfusion injury. The main objective of this study was to describe the extent and time course of changes in myocardial metabolism and development of myocardial injury associated with revascularization. Coronary sinus and...
Various techniques have been proposed for surgical correction of aortic coarctation in adults. We describe direct aortoplasty repair in a 28-year-old woman with native coarctation. Four-year follow-up with magnetic resonance angiography confirmed a good result. This is a safe and effective...
