We describe here the case of a MitraClip implantation performed under deep sedation with ketamine and propofol infusion in a patient unsuitable for surgical repair because of her comorbidities.ResumoA implantação percutânea de MitraClip é feita através de um dispositivo tipo catéter concebido para reparar a zona central das duas cúspides da valva mitral insuficiente, como procedimento alternativo em doentes de alto risco cirúrgico, com uma insuficiência mitral severa sintomática, que não são adequados ou são recusados para repara&ccedi...
We describe a patient with a PCG involving the left lower lobe extending into the left atrium, that was resected en bloc using a conventional posterolateral thoracotomy combined with a surgical approach predominantly used for minimally invasive mitral valve surgery. This case illustrates how it is possible to utilize a technique used for cardiac surgery for tumors of pulmonary origin involving the heart.
Severe aortic stenosis (AS) and severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR) may coexist. The aim of this study was to determine the change in right ventricular (RV) function and TR after surgical aortic valve replacement combined with tricuspid valve repair (SAVR+TVr), transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), or conservative management and compare outcomes dependent on RV functional parameters and treatment allocation.
ConclusionsDespite the similar survival between ischaemic and non-ischaemic FMR, different predictors of all-cause mortality were demonstrated. Further clinical studies are mandated to focus on each FMR subgroup with stratification by ischaemic origin.
Conclusion: in the study sample, we found no relation between perceived stressors at the Intensive Care Unit and hemodynamic instability in the postoperative period of cardiac surgery.
