These materials develop some new or improved physical, chemical, mechanical and other properties which do not convoy to their individual components. These composite materials are developed and synthesized in order to fulfill some special applications. These materials are composed of diffe...

Authors: Jiang Q, Wang Z, Guo J, Yu T, Zhang X, Hu S Abstract Objectives: We investigated whether the totally video-assisted thoracoscopic mitral valve surgery provides superior clinical outcomes and less inflammatory injury reaction compared with conventional sternotomy.Methods: A total of 504 consecutive patients admitted for mitral valve surgery from May 2014 through May 2019 in a single center were retrospectively analyzed according to two distinct procedure approach: the totally video-assisted thoracoscopic approach (group A, n = 127) and standard median sternotomy (group B, n = 377...

Long-term outcomes of aortic valve replacement (AVR) are worse in patients with tricuspid regurgitation (TR) but the impact of concomitant tricuspid valve intervention remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of tricuspid intervention in patients with TR undergoing AVR.

How much importance should the cardiac surgeon place on the dynamic, intraoperative transesophageal echo (TEE) information in executing an excellent operation? Perhaps this seems almost a silly question. After all, no one would question the importance of TEE in assessing adequacy of a mitral valve repair or left ventricular outflow tract resection or aortic valve repair. So, why are the completely intuitive findings in the current paper, e.g., that obvious residual right ventricular outflow tract obstruction (RVOTO) in the acute, intraoperative TEE after tetralogy of Fallot repair (TOF), important enough to add to the surg...

ConclusionsRobotically assisted mitral valve repair was feasible, safe, and therapeutically effective in the first 100 cases, with a minimal learning curve. The robotically assisted approach provides a high-quality surgical view and tremorless suture/cut handling, which will contribute to further development of minimally invasive mitral valve surgery.

AbstractCoarctation is rare in patients over 50 years of age; however, if present, it can be associated with complex intracardiac pathologies and represent a formidable surgical challenge. Herein, we report a single ‐stage approach for surgical repair of coarctation associated with aortic, mitral, and tricuspid valve pathology using an ascending‐to‐descending aortic bypass with posterior pericardial access.

Whether mitral valve repair is superior to replacement in rheumatic population has been debated, this study aims to compare outcomes of repair with replacement by propensity score method.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Standardization of aortic valve repair by the external ring annuloplasty approach is an alternative to valve replacement to avoid prosthetic valve-related events. Although the benefit of exercise training to improve postoperative exercise tolerance has been demonstrated in many conditions after cardiac surgery, it has never been described after aortic valve repair. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the feasibility of an early exercise training programme after aortic valve repair. METHODS: Consecutive patients were prospectively included in 13 postoperative centres. Patients underwent an exerci...

The significant anteroposterior diameter reduction offered by the annuloplasty implantation maximized the leaflet coaptation obt...

To examine the role and outcomes of all interventions for aortic stenosis in children, with focus on freedom from reintervention and the aim to minimise prosthetic aortic valve replacement (pAVR) during childhood. Retrospective analysis of 194 consecutive children who underwent any aortic valve intervention for a biventricular repair strategy at a single institution between 1995-2017. Data were obtained from hospital records and follow-up was 100% complete. Over a 22-year period, 194 children underwent total 313 aortic valve procedures: Primary interventions were surgical valvotomy (SV)/surgical repair (SR) in 94 (48.5%), ...
