OBJECTIVESTransannular patching is used to relieve significant pulmonary annular stenosis during tetralogy of Fallot repair. Although recent literature has focused on the deleterious effects of pulmonary regurgitation, inadequate relief of stenosis may increase postoperative mortality and the...
OBJECTIVESCurrent cardiac surgery patients are older, sicker, with more diffuse disease and hence a reduced tolerance to ischaemia-reperfusion injury. We previously demonstrated that esmolol, an ultra-short-acting -blocker, can be used as an arresting agent at high (millimolar) concentrations,...
OBJECTIVESExtensive clinicopathological analyses of aortic dissection have implicated hypertension and genetic abnormalities as the major pathogenic mechanisms. However, previous findings from pathological examinations have often been inconsistent with these mechanisms. In this paper, we suggest...
A straightforward tricuspid valve repair technique is illustrated here, which may be employed either for functional (normal valve with dilated annulus) or for primary or organic (Ebstein's anomaly, leaflet retraction/tethering and chordal malposition/tethering, with annular dilatation) tricuspid...
OBJECTIVESA single or dual-dose strategy for myocardial protection is attractive in long operations, in avoiding the need to interrupt the procedure to re-administer cardioplegia. We hypothesized that a single administration of Bretschneider histidinetryptophanketoglutarate (HTK) crystalloid...
