Extra ‐anatomic aortic bypass with aortic‐, mitral‐, and tricuspid surgery in a 53‐year old: A single‐stage approach for complex coarctation associated with triple valve pathology

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.

AbstractPurpose of reviewHeart failure remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality despite advances in guideline directed medical and electrophysiologic device therapies. Valvular heart disease (VHD) is common in heart failure patients and independently associated with poor outcomes. This review provides an update in the rapidly evolving field of transcatheter heart valve interventions (THVI) in the management of heart failure.Recent findingsAortic stenosis (AS) may cause or worsen heart failure. Functional mitral regurgitation (FMR) and functional tricuspid regurgitation (FTR) occur secondary to heart failure and con...

Authors: Lee CH, Lim JH, Kim ER, Kim YJ Abstract Ebstein anomaly is a rare congenital heart malformation typically involving the tricuspid valve and the right ventricle that has a wide range of anatomical and pathophysiological presentations. Various surgical repair techniques for Ebstein anomaly have been reported because of its near-infinite anatomical variability. Cone repair for Ebstein anomaly can achieve nearly anatomical reconstruction of the tricuspid valve with promising outcomes. In this article, the surgical techniques for cone repair in adult patients with Ebstein anomaly are described in detail, and cl...

The objective of this study is to report the outcomes after Shone's complex repair, the growth of mitral and aortic valve and LVOT, and long ‐term survival.MethodsThis retrospective study included all patients diagnosed with Shone's complex, who underwent biventricular repair. Data including patients' characteristics, type of the MV lesion and the associated lesions were collected. Patients were followed up regularly with echocardiography, and the changes in mitral and aortic valvez‐score and LVOTz‐score were recorded.ResultsThirty ‐seven patients were included in the study, the median age was 3.4 months, and 11 pa...

AbstractIn this review, we provide a brief description of recently published articles addressing topics relevant to pediatric cardiologists. Our hope is to provide a summary of the latest articles published recently in other journals in our field. The articles address (1) outcomes after anomalous aortic origin of the coronary artery repair which showed relief of ischemia in most patients with low mortality, (2) the role of lymphatic imaging to predict post-Fontan complications which showed that lymphatic imaging by MRI may have an added prognostic value, (3) European guidelines for participation in competitive sports in co...

ConclusionsConcomitant AoV surgery in patients undergoing LVAD implantation is an independent predictor of mortality. Additional research is needed to determine the best AoV surgical strategy at the time of LVAD surgery.

We present a case of hemolytic anemia after ascending aortic replacement for type A aortic dissection repair. In the case, transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT), and laboratory tests failed to identify the cause of hemolytic anemia.

Much has been discussed and presented in recent times about the repair of tricuspid valve during mitral surgery. In this issue of Heart, Lung and Circulation, the article by Fawzy et  al. entitled “Should Moderate Functional Tricuspid Regurgitation be Repaired During Surgery for Rheumatic Mitral Valve Disease” is timely [1]. Although retrospective in nature, the study cohort was large enough for the authors to look at two groups of propensity-matched patients who had modera te tricuspid regurgitation (TR): those that underwent tricuspid valve repair compared to those that did not.

CONCLUSIONS: Our network meta-analysis demonstrated significant reduction in TR recurrence for rigid ring TAP compared to Suture TAP, although no significant differences were observed between suture and flexible band TAP, and flexible band and rigid ring TAP. There was no significant mortality difference among suture, flexible band, and rigid ring TAP. PMID: 33011167 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
