FreedAortico-left ventricular tunnel is a rare congenital anomaly requiring surgical repair early in childhood. After corrective surgery, such patients are at risk of developing aortic insufficiency and aortic root dilatation. Herein, we describe a valve-sparing aortic root replacement 3 decades after the repair of aortico-left ventricular tunnel.

EstreraBackgroundWe reviewed the efficacy of intraoperative intercostal nerve cryoanalgesia for pain control in patients undergoing descending and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repairs.MethodsDuring 2013 and 2017, 241 patients underwent descending and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm repair. Of those, 38 patients were treated with intraoperative cryoanalgesia to the inte...

ConclusionsFAP is an excellent substrate for complex mitral valve leaflet patch repairs and can be used with the expectation of durable, long-term valve function, without evidence of late patch calcification, stiffness, or aneurysmal degeneration.

Conclusion: The AHD and CSA were reliably measured in the true AP radiographic view. Both radiographic features (AHD35°) were able to confirm the presence of a major RC pathology. However, the AHD

Authors: Lappalainen J, Holmström D, Lepistö A, Saarnio J, Mecklin JP, Seppälä T Abstract Background: Lifetime incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) especially in carriers of MLH1 and MSH2 pathogenic germline variants in mismatch repair genes is high despite ongoing colonoscopy surveillance. Lynch syndrome (LS) registries have been criticized for not reporting colonoscopy quality adequately.Methods: Prospective follow-up data from the national registry were combined with a retrospective assessment of the colonoscopy reports from Helsinki University Hospital electronic patients records in 2004-201...

The objectives of this study were to compare in-hospital outcomes of repair versus ligation of isolated PVI, as well as to determine nonvascular factors associated with worse outcomes.MethodsPatients in the National Trauma Databank from 2007 to 2014 with at least one PVI were evaluated. First, patients with concomitant PVI and PAI were compared with patients with isolated PVI. Second, outcomes were compared between ligation and repair of isolated PVI. To limit the impact of concomitant injuries and focus on the impact of venous injury management, we defined isolated PVI as cases without concomitant PAI and with Abbreviated...

ConclusionsIVC reconstruction is a safe option for patients requiring IVC resection during oncologic surgery as evidenced by 1-year survival of 75% and 1-year primary patency approaching 90%. The overall rate of postoperative thrombus development was low and similar across all groups. In the management of primary and secondary retroperitoneal malignant disease with IVC infiltration, IVC reconstruction should be considered to achieve appropriate oncologic resection while minimizing possible complications from caval interruption.

Authors: Bolton L Abstract Early surgical debridement of nonviable tissue within 48 hours of burn injury is the standard of care (SOC) for burns extending into and beyond the deep dermis. Early debridement has been reported to reduce infection and complication rates, shorten hospital stays, and improve burn wound healing compared with delayed debridement of these burns.1 However, surgical debridement challenges patients with considerable pain, blood and heat loss, and poor differentiation between viable and dead tissue resulting in unnecessary excision of healthy tissue.2 Alternative debridement interventions, such...
