Less Invasive Mitral Surgery versus Conventional Sternotomy Stratified by Mitral Pathology.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Our objective was to compare national mitral repair rates and outcomes after less invasive mitral surgery (LIMS) versus conventional sternotomy across the spectrum of mitral pathologies and repair techniques. METHODS: Patients undergoing isolated primary mitral valve surgery in the Society of Thoracic Surgeons Adult Cardiac Surgery Database from July 2014 - December 2018 were evaluated. Propensity score models were constructed non-parsimoniously, and prediction models used to compute adjusted effects of surgical approach. Hypothesis tests were adjusted for propensity score with inverse-pr...

Systematic reviews and meta-analyses in cardiac surgery: rules of the road - 1.
Abstract The number of cardiac surgical meta-analyses and systematic reviews published in the last decades has constantly increased, paralleling the exponential growth observed in virtually all other medical fields. However, meta-analyses are open to methodological flaws if best practices are not strictly followed. Assessment of the appropriateness of the research question is a crucial first step. Once a protocol has been developed, this should be registered before the work is initiated. The cornerstone of any systematic review or meta-analysis is a rigorous, comprehensive, and most of all reproducible search whic...

Combined Manouguian-Guiraudon Approach for Double Valve Replacement: The Commando Revisited.
Abstract Double annular enlargement (DAE) is a valuable technique for the cardiac surgeon, and it should be in his/her armamentarium when dealing with challenging aortic and mitral valve cases. The technique requires reconstruction of the intervalvular fibrosa and it redesigns the inflow and the outflow of the left ventricle in a way that serves both annular enlargement and satisfactory valve replacement with resulting low gradients. Below, we describe our preferred operative steps. PMID: 32717238 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Annals of Thoracic Surgery)

Transcarotid vs Subclavian/Axillary Access for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement with SAPIEN 3.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Subclavian/Axillary (TAx) Access has become the most frequently used alternative access route for Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR). Transcarotid (TC) TAVR has grown in popularity recently. Comparative data between these two contemporary access methods is lacking. METHODS: Data were extracted from the STS/ACC TVT Registry™ (June 2015 to October 2019) for patients undergoing TAVR via TC or TAx access with the SAPIEN 3 and SAPIEN 3 Ultra transcatheter heart valves. Procedural, index hospitalization, and 30-day outcomes were analyzed for TC vs. TAx groups after 1:2 propensi...

Preoperative Factors That Predict Recurrence after Repair of Discrete Subaortic Stenosis.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Several factors predict reintervention for subaortic stenosis (SubAS): age, pre-operative left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) gradient, distance from obstructive subaortic ridge to aortic valve (AoV), and peeling of membrane from the aortic/mitral valves. We sought to develop a prediction rule to categorize risk of reintervention for recurrent SubAS and guide follow-up in patients with discrete SubAS. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed patients who underwent SubAS resection between 1984 and 2016. Our primary outcome was reintervention for recurrent SubAS post-discharge. Kaplan-Meier e...

Younger Age at Operation is Associated with Reinterventions Following the Warden Procedure.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Multiple techniques are available for repair of supracardiac partial anomalous pulmonary venous return (PAPVR), however, most series fail to compare the techniques in contemporary cohorts. We aim to describe outcomes of the Warden procedure with a single patch repair cohort to serve as a control. METHODS: A retrospective cohort analysis of all patients at a single institution included patients undergoing Warden procedure or single patch repair from 1996-2019 for PAPVR. Reintervention was defined as any catheter or surgical procedure on the superior vena cava (SVC) or pulmonary veins. Subg...

Cardiopulmonary Bypass Suppresses Forkhead Box O3 and Downstream Autophagy in Diabetic Human Heart.
CONCLUSIONS: Compared to non-diabetics, there was no significant upregulation of FOXO3α in diabetic patients, which could possibly explain the lack of upregulation of autophagy process after CPB. FOXO3α could potentially serve as a therapeutic target to improve cellular homeostasis. PMID: 32712101 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Annals of Thoracic Surgery)

CONCLUSIONS: A majority of cardiac surgeons would perform CABG or valve surgery on patients with controlled HIV, but most consider HIV status as a prohibitive risk factor for cardiac transplantation. While this may represent an opportunity for continuing medical education for cardiac surgeons, it also highlights the need for contemporary, high quality evidence in this patient population.

The objectives of the study were: to evaluate depression scores longitudinally pre- and post-operatively and to examine the association between post-operative depression scores and clinical, surgical, and socio-psychological factors. METHODS: Depression scores were assessed using the Center for Epidemiological Study of Depression (CES-D) in 100 cardiac surgical patients who underwent cardiac surgery pre-operatively, during hospitalization, and at 2-weeks and 6-weeks post-discharge. Clinical, surgical and socio-psychological predictors of depression scores were recorded. RESULTS: The average depressive scores sign...
