Surgical treatment of carcinoid syndrome metastatic disease: Partial hepatectomy with veno-venous bypass and subsequent tricuspid valve replacement. Case report

Conclusions We report here a case review, including the clinical course, the intra-operative management, and the information available in the literature regarding which procedure to perform initially in these types of cases which are not very common in clinical practice.

rcq F Abstract After a first procedure carried out in 2002 by Pr Cribier's, Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement or TAVR revolutionized the management of aortic stenosis with a constant increase in the number of procedures performed worldwide. Experience of operators and teams and evolution of the technique has been accompanied by a drastic reduction in complications in patients at lower surgical risk. In parallel, the procedure was considerably simplified, carried out more and more under local anesthesia, with percutaneous femoral approach, secondary radial approach, prosthesis implantation without predilatatio...

FOR PATIENTS with severe aortic valve stenosis (AS) and significant comorbid conditions who are determined to be at a high or prohibitive surgical risk, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) represents a viable and durable treatment option. The anesthetic management of these cases is often complex because the procedure may be complicated by hemodynamic instability or circulatory collapse. In particular, TAVR in patients with severely reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) poses significant challenges, and optimal treatment strategies are not established fully.

IN THE ERA of multidisciplinary and team-based approach to organ system pathologies, there is a utility in standardization of healthcare practices to enhance coordination and improve quality. Clinical decision pathways developed to support collaborative decision-making by “heart valve teams” in the setting of aortic valve replacement,1 and more recently mitral valve intervention,2 is an example highlighting this trend and need for standardization in cardiovascular medicine.

Comparison of TransFemoral Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement Performed With a Minimally Invasive Simplified Technique: "FAST" Versus a Standard Approach. J Invasive Cardiol. 2019 Oct;31(10):300-306 Authors: Lefèvre G, Jégou A, Dambrin G, Picard F, Anconina J, Pouzet B, Guesnier L, Cheikh Khelifa R, Hilpert L, Doan HL, Favereau X Abstract OBJECTIVES: To assess the safety and efficacy of a new simplified procedure for transfemoral (TF) transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR): the FAST protocol. BACKGROUND: A minimalist approach for TF-TAVR has been reported. The goa...

CONCLUSIONS Systematic review of the literature and meta-analysis showed that pre-procedural anemia reduced long-term mortality following TAVI. This finding supports the need to correct preoperative anemia in patients with aortic stenosis to improve patient outcome following TAVI. PMID: 31559972 [PubMed - in process]
