SummaryThe mitral valve has been traditionally approached through a median sternotomy. However, significant advances in surgical optics, instrumentation, tissue telemanipulation, and perfusion technology have allowed for mitral valve surgery to be performed using progressively smaller incisions...
AbstractBackground: Previous studies have been unable to identify independent valve-related risk factors for postoperative respiratory failure (RF) in patients undergoing valve surgery. This study was designed to determine the incidence and predictors of RF in these patients. We also aimed to...
AbstractCalcifying fibrous pseudotumour is a rare benign tumour of soft tissue origin, occasionally encountered in the thoracic cavity; surgical resection is considered the treatment of choice. Herein we present the case of a young woman who presented with a calcifying fibrous pseudotumour...
AbstractObjective: To investigate geometrical and functional changes involving the left ventricle (LV) and mitral valve (MV) apparatus in patients with depressed LV ejection fraction (LVEF) and ischemic MV regurgitation (IMVR). Methods: A series of patients with three vessels coronary artery...
AbstractWe report a rare case of unguarded tricuspid orifice with pulmonary atresia, which is devoid of any guarding valvular tissue at tricuspid annulus. A left Blalock–Taussig shunt was constructed on the 17th day of life. At 4 years of age, a bidirectional Glenn’s operation was performed for...
AbstractObjective: Ischemic preconditioning reduces infarct size and improves hemodynamic function. Unstable angina may be a clinical analogue to ischemic preconditioning, and involve activation of gene programs. We hypothesized that preceding unstable angina and/or ischemic preconditioning...
