Mid-term single-centre outcomes of BioIntegral compared to Freestyle aortic conduit implantation.

Mid-term single-centre outcomes of BioIntegral compared to Freestyle aortic conduit implantation. J Cardiovasc Surg (Torino). 2019 Dec 06;: Authors: Mehdiani A, Sorokin VA, Sule J, Smiris K, Stadnik D, Lichtenberg A, Blehm A Abstract BACKGROUND: Full aortic root replacement with biological conduit has limited options. This non-randomized cohort study aims to compare mid-term clinical and hemodynamic results of the BioIntegral (BI) composite biological versus the stentless Freestyle (FS) conduits in patients undergoing full aortic root replacement. METHODS: From February 2013 to July 2017, 265 patients underwent aortic root replacement at a single institution (BI n=202, FS n=65). Preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative parameters, complications including stroke, myocardial infarction (MI), endocarditis and reoperation were studied. Hemodynamic performance of both conduits was analysed by echocardiography. Target endpoints were 30-day mortality, 2-year survival, 2-year freedom from major adverse valve-related and cardiovascular events. RESULTS: Wider BI conduits were used (BI 27±2mm vs FS 25±2mm, p

Jie, S.U.N. Xuan, X.U. BiaoAbstract and KeywordsHypertension (HT) is the most common public-health challenge and shows a high incidence around the world. Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of mortality and morbidity among the elderly (age> 65 years) in the United States. Now, there is widespread acceptance of the causal link between HT and acute myocardial infarction (MI). This is the first data-mining study to id...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-term clinical outcomes and the incidence of permanent pacemaker implantation after catheter ablation in patients with of atrial fibrillation (AF) and sinus node dysfunction (SND). METHODS: Among 3,068 total consecutive patients who underwent AF catheter ablation (AFCA), this study included 222 (9.5%; men 53.2%, 63.7±9.2 years of age, 81.5% paroxysmal AF) with underlying SND and a regular rhythm follow-up. We analyzed the rhythm outcomes, changes in the mean heart rate or heart rate variability, and permanent pacemaker implantation rate. RESULTS: During 47....

This study found that though it is often associated with coronary artery disease (CAD), it can also occur in those without significant CAD. It was not specifically associated with disease of right coronary artery disease. This cardioinhibitory response may be a manifestation of the Bezold-Jarisch reflex. Bezold-Jarisch reflex inhibits sympathetic activity (sympathetic withdrawal) and increases parasympathetic activity, resulting in bradycardia, which may be associated with vasodilatation, nausea and hypotension. Bezold-Jarisch has been described in the setting of inferior wall infarction and coronary angiography. Origin...
