AbstractWe developed a technique of translocation of the pulmonary artery anterior to the ascending aorta without transection of the aorta in the repair of tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve. Our technique includes detachment of the main pulmonary artery (MPA) from the pulmonary...
AbstractObjective: Multilevel somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEP) and the release of biochemical markers in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) were investigated to identify patients with spinal cord ischemia during thoracoabdominal aortic repair and/or a vulnerable spinal cord during the postoperative...
AbstractObjective: To evaluate timing for surgery and management of complex valve lesions in patients with active mitral valve (MV) endocarditis. Results are based on 13 years of experience with MV repair in active endocarditis. Method: Between 1993 and 2005, 81 patients were operated for active...
AbstractCardiac tumors are detected rarely in childhood. These are most frequently found in infancy, and most are rhabdomyomas. We describe a unique occurrence of a rarely described intracardiac tumor in an asymptomatic 7-year-old child.
AbstractObjective: Preprocedural levels of C-reactive protein predict mid-term mortality after percutaneous coronary intervention for the treatment of unprotected left main coronary artery stenosis. However, there are no data regarding the impact of C-reactive protein on mid-term mortality in...
AbstractObjective: We have previously shown that fixed pulmonary hypertension in cardiac transplant candidates can be lowered using left ventricular assist devices (LVADs). The post-transplant survival of these patients is uncertain as pulmonary hypertension may reappear, possibly affecting...
AbstractObjective: Although antegrade selective cerebral perfusion (ASCP) has been demonstrated to be the best method of protection of brain ischemia during aortic arch surgery, there is no consensus regarding optimal temperature during ASCP. The study analyzed the outcomes of aortic surgery...
