Nido Surgical seeks $1.5m for next-gen cardiac surgery tools

del Nido Stealthy Nido Surgical took the 1st steps toward raising a hoped-for $1.5 million, pulling in $105,000 from 3 unnamed investors in a debt-and-options round, according to a regulatory filing. Nido Surgical, named for co-founder and cardiac surgery chief at Boston Children’s Hospital Dr. Pedro del Nido, is developing minimally invasive instruments for image-guided, beating-heart surgery, according to the LinkedIn profile of co-founder, president &CEO Gerald Moore. The company was formed to commercialize technology created by del Nido and his team at Children’s over the past 10 years, according to Moore’s profile. Nido Surgical’s SEC filing also lists as a manager Boston Children’s Dr. Nikolay Vasilyev, a cardiac surgery researcher focused on instruments and device design for valve interventions and septal defects closure, new imaging techniques, computer modeling and simulation, according to the hospital’s website.

Interrupted aortic arch is commonly associated with a posterior malalignment ventricular septal defect (VSD) and left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) hypoplasia. Standard repair is carried out in the neonatal period and includes re-establishing arc continuity and VSD closure. Reintervention on the LVOT for obstruction is a common and an ongoing source of morbidity and mortality. A variety of preoperative echocardiographic measurements have been identified to identify patients at risk for developing LVOT obstruction but an aortic valve annulus dimension (mm)

Abstract A 28-year-old gentleman with ventricular septal defect (VSD), double-chambered right ventricle (DCRV) with associated right ventricular outflow tract obstruction, and anomalous right coronary artery (RCA) underwent resection of the DCRV, trans-aortic VSD repair, and unroofing of anomalous RCA. Two years later, he returned with delayed presentation of VSD flow funnel related aortic cusp prolapse and symptomatic severe aortic regurgitation. He underwent reoperative valve-sparing aortic root replacement and aortic cusp repair with an excellent outcome. PMID: 30986415 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The objective of the study was then to assess the anatomy of the VSD on echocardiography.MethodFrom 2009 to 2017, 51 consecutive patients with VSD complicated by AVP were admitted for surgery. We screened retrospectively all preoperative echocardiographies in double-blind test. We analyzed the anatomic type of the VSD according to ICD-11 classification and looked for outlet septum malalignment, the nature of the prolapsed aortic leaflet, the severity of aortic regurgitation and other complications.ResultsThe VSD was central perimembranous (pm) in 23 patients (45%), outlet with malalignment in 21 (41%) and outlet juxta-arte...

AbstractIn the spectrum of congenital heart diseases, anomalies involving the venous coronary sinus have received relatively little attention, although they are often associated with major congenital defects, such as atrioventricular septal defects.In cases of mitral surgery in patients with these conditions, it is mandatory to keep the problem in mind and to respect the coronary sinus when approaching the left atrium and the mitral valve.

Abstract BACKGROUND: To compare and analyze the safety and efficacy of fast-track and conventional anesthesia for transthoracic closure of ventricular septal defects (VSDs) in pediatric patients. METHODS: A total of 82 pediatric patients undergoing transthoracic closure of VSDs between September and December 2017 were retrospectively analyzed. The patients were divided into two groups, including 42 patients in group F (fast-track anesthesia) and 40 patients in group C (conventional anesthesia). The perioperative clinical data of both groups were collected and statistically analyzed. RESULTS: There were n...

Perventricular VSD closure  Perventricular VSD closure is a hybrid procedure in which the cardiac surgeon opens the chest and the cardiologist passes a sheath through the right ventricle to achieve a device closure of the ventricular septal defect (VSD). Hybrid procedures are done in hybrid suites with facility for both open heart surgery and radiographic equipment for cardiac catheterization and angiography (hybrid of open heart surgery theatre and cardiac catheterization laboratory or cathlab). Heart is exposed through a lower partial sternotomy. The advantage is that cardiopulmonary bypass is n...

We recently reported a case of atrioventricular valve (AV) replacement with a Melody valve (Medtronic, Minneapolis, Minn) in a 3-month-old, 3.2-kg infant with unbalanced atrioventricular septal defect, dominant left ventricle who presented with severe AV regurgitation and borderline ventricular function.1 In this letter, we would like to report an update on the Melody valve status and the patient's clinical course until successful heart transplantation at 13  months after the AV replacement.
