Predictors of Left Ventricular Dysfunction after Surgery for Degenerative Mitral Regurgitation
This study was performed to determine if strain can supplement the ability of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) to predict post-op ventricular dysfunction in patients undergoing mitral valve (MV) surgery for degenerative mitral regurgitation (DMR).MethodsFrom 2004 to 2017, 520 patients with an LVEF> 60% underwent MV surgery (98% repair) for DMR. All patients had preoperative (pre-op), pre-discharge (pre-dsg) and follow-up (F/U) (mean 5.0±3.6 years) echocardiograms. Speckle tracking was performed in 119/520 (22.9%) patients to determine LV strain, right ventricular (RV) free-wall strain, and left atrial lo...

Early and late results after David versus Bentall procedure: a propensity matched analysis
ConclusionsBoth the David and Bentall operation are associated with excellent early and long-term results in patients with aortic root aneurysmal disease. The David operation is associated with less bleeding than the Bentall operation without an increased risk of reoperation. Because of avoidance of bleeding and other long-term complications associated with prosthetic heart valves, the David operation is preferable to the Bentall operation in patients with appropriate pathoanatomy.

An alternative approach to build a “biologic Bentall” from a pericardial tube and a sutureless valve
This report describes our novel technique to create a bio-Bentall from a pericardial tube and a rapid deployment valve. This technique facilitates the reimplantation of the coronary arteries as the proximal anastomosis is sewn before valve implantation and allows suturing of the coronary ostia from in- and outside as there is no interference with the implanted valve. Indications for this technique can be complex redo cases and patients with contraindications for a conventional Bentall procedure. We have applied this technique in two patients with good results.The Bentall-procedure, first described in 1968 [1], is the gold ...
