Aortic Valve Replacement in Bioprosthetic Failure:Insights from The Society of Thoracic Surgeons National Database

ConclusionsThe number of patients undergoing SAVR for degenerated bioprosthesis is decreasing in U.S, particularly among older and high-risk patients. These trends may reflect the adoption of valve-in-valve transcatheter aortic valve replacement for degenerated bioprosthesis after its FDA approval in 2015.

Authors: Wang TKM, Liao YB, Choi D, Harmos S, Haydcok D, Gerber I Abstract AIMS: A significant minority of patients undergoing mitral valve surgery (MVR) have indication for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). The risks of combination surgeries are not well appreciated and maybe more than additive. We compared the characteristics and outcomes of MVR+/-CABG performed at our centre. METHODS: Consecutive patients undergoing isolated MVR or with concurrent (MVR+)CABG at Auckland City Hospital during 2005-2012 were compared for baseline and operative characteristics and outcomes in univariable and multivariable ...

Staphylococcus aureus prosthetic valve endocarditis (SAPVE) has a poor prognosis. There are no large series that accurately describe this entity. This is a retrospective observational study on a prospective cohort from 3 Spanish reference hospitals for cardiac surgery, including 78 definitive episodes of left SAPVE between 1996 and 2016. Fifty percent had a Charlson Index score>5; 53% were health care-related. Twenty percent did not present fever. Complications at diagnosis included: severe heart failure (HF, 29%), septic shock (SS, 17.9%), central nervous system abnormalities (19%), septic metastasis (4%). Hemorrhagi...

Abstract Over the years there has been substantial advanced in the diagnosis and surgical management of complex thoracic aortic disease and complex endocarditis. As these therapies are being offered to a growing segment of patients-and more and more patients are felt to potentially benefit from such therapies, the long-term consequences of these interventions is sometimes poorly understood. While traditional medical complications, such as stroke, renal failure, respiratory failure, and even death are often the focus of outcomes studies, little is known on the impact of these diseases and therapies on mental health...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Limited data are available regarding outcomes for stentless aortic valve reoperation. The reported reoperative mortality has been unacceptably high. METHODS: Between 1997-2017, a retrospective analysis was performed on 143 patients that underwent open aortic valve reoperations for failed stentless aortic valve bioprostheses. We evaluated both short- and long-term outcomes on this cohort of patients. RESULTS: Bicuspid aortic valve was present in 107/143 (75%) of patients at the time of the initial Freestyle procedure and 84% (120/143) patients underwent a modified inclusion aortic roo...

Conclusions Contemporary utilization of SA is increasing across all operative categories. Performance of SA is accompanied by a 30-day reduction in mortality and stroke. These findings further refine our understanding of the role of SA in the treatment of AF.

In conclusion, perioperative stroke risk has remained more or less constant despite advancements in surgical techniques with risk having gone up in patients <65years of age. CS and cerebral arterial occlusion significantly increase stroke risk following SAVR. Improved patient selection with pre-operative risk stratification and institution of preventive strategies are necessary to improve operative outcomes following SAVR.
