Donor Pulmonary vein anomalies: What's in your toolbox?

Consequently, they are at high risk for injury and this leaves the implanting surgeon with an unpleasant surprise. An innovative approach can help resolve the situation. We wish to highlight our experience with an anomalous left upper pulmonary vein and describe a novel reconstruction technique.PMID:33631150 | DOI:10.1016/j.athoracsur.2021.02.015 (Source: The Annals of Thoracic Surgery)

To unifocalize or not to unifocalize?: A comparison of retro-esophageal versus anterior collaterals

Some MAPCAs travel behind the esophagus (retro-esophageal) and bronchus before entering the lung parenchyma. The purpose of this study was to compare the physiologic and surgical characteristics of retro-esophageal versus anterior located MAPCAs.METHODS: This was a retrospective review of 42 patients who had ...

Repair of Pulmonary Vascular Injury: A Take-Home Low Fidelity Simulator
We present a low-cost, simple simulation model of major vascular injury repair for cardiothoracic trainees. This model uses commercially available orthopedic elastic bands to allow repetitive practice of skills necessary during these rare but critical clinical scenarios. Practicing core skills in the simulation setting will help residents be better prepared when the situation arises.PMID:33631153 | DOI:10.1016/j.athoracsur.2020.12.086 (Source: The Annals of Thoracic Surgery)

Polytetrafluoroethylene Tricuspid Valved Conduit for Right Ventricular Outflow Tract Reconstruction
We present a technique for construction of a handmade tricuspid valved polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) conduit for use in patients of all ages requiring RVOT reconstruction at the time of congenital cardiac surgery. This conduit provides an economically advantageous and readily available option globally when compared to homograft, without sacrificing surgical results.PMID:33631155 | DOI:10.1016/j.athoracsur.2020.11.090 (Source: The Annals of Thoracic Surgery)

Less invasive left ventricular assist device implantation with "Furoshiki" technique

However, in the setting of bridge to transplantation device-related dense adhesions particularly at the thoracotomy site still remain a cumbersome problem at the time of heart transplantation. We propose a technique termed "Furoshiki" with the double wrapping of the LVAD at the primary less invasive implantation consisting of complete wrapping of LVAD with ...
