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

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...

Abstract Heart failure (HF) increases the risk of ischemic stroke. Data regarding the incidence and predictors of ischemic stroke during hospitalization for HF are limited. The study population of this retrospective cohort study consisted of patients with congestive HF, consecutively admitted to our center from October 2010 to April 2014. We excluded patients complicated with acute myocardial infarction, infective endocarditis, and takotsubo cardiomyopathy. We also excluded those with dialysis or mechanical circulatory support. We investigated the incidence of ischemic stroke during hospitalization for HF. Thereaf...
