Aortic Dissection with Rare Anatomical Aortic Arch Variation Depicted by Computed Tomography Angiography
We present the case of a 27-year-old female with aortic dissection with a rare anatomical aortic arch variation caused by chest trauma. This patient recovered well after endovascular repair. This case report demonstrates endovascular repair can be applied to aortic dissection patients with rare anatomical aortic arch variation.PMID:33973514 | DOI:10.1532/hsf.3619 (Source: The Heart Surgery Forum)

Perioperative Risk Factors Predisposing to Atrial Fibrillation After CABG Surgery
CONCLUSION: The risk of POAF can be decreased by modifying perioperative adjustable risk factors, namely routinely using preoperative beta-blockers (unless contraindicated), achieving total coronary revascularization, avoiding postoperative electrolyte imbalance, and avoiding unnecessary use of inotropic support.PMID:33973515 | DOI:10.1532/hsf.3759 (Source: The Heart Surgery Forum)

Rapidly Progressing Fatal Left Ventricular Pseudoaneurysm After Acute Myocardial Infarction - A Case Report of Delayed Diagnosis
We report a case of a 60-year-old man with acute MI due to a three-way occlusion in the coronary arteries. An emergency transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) on the 11th day after the MI showed a small ventricular aneurysm, which was probably a late complication of the acute MI episode. A repeat TTE on the 26th day of the MI episode revealed a rapidly progressing LVPA. Emergency heart surgery was planned, but the patient died due to LVPA rupture. This case illustrates timely diagnosis and corrective surgery are key to saving patients from fatal LVPAs.PMID:33973516 | DOI:10.1532/hsf.3679 (Source: The Heart Surgery Forum)

Aortic Dissection with Rare Anatomical Aortic Arch Variation Depicted by Computed Tomography Angiography
We present the case of a 27-year-old female with aortic dissection with a rare anatomical aortic arch variation caused by chest trauma. This patient recovered well after endovascular repair. This case report demonstrates endovascular repair can be applied to aortic dissection patients with rare anatomical aortic arch variation.PMID:33973514 | DOI:10.1532/hsf.3619 (Source: The Heart Surgery Forum)

Perioperative Risk Factors Predisposing to Atrial Fibrillation After CABG Surgery
CONCLUSION: The risk of POAF can be decreased by modifying perioperative adjustable risk factors, namely routinely using preoperative beta-blockers (unless contraindicated), achieving total coronary revascularization, avoiding postoperative electrolyte imbalance, and avoiding unnecessary use of inotropic support.PMID:33973515 | DOI:10.1532/hsf.3759 (Source: The Heart Surgery Forum)

Rapidly Progressing Fatal Left Ventricular Pseudoaneurysm After Acute Myocardial Infarction - A Case Report of Delayed Diagnosis
We report a case of a 60-year-old man with acute MI due to a three-way occlusion in the coronary arteries. An emergency transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) on the 11th day after the MI showed a small ventricular aneurysm, which was probably a late complication of the acute MI episode. A repeat TTE on the 26th day of the MI episode revealed a rapidly progressing LVPA. Emergency heart surgery was planned, but the patient died due to LVPA rupture. This case illustrates timely diagnosis and corrective surgery are key to saving patients from fatal LVPAs.PMID:33973516 | DOI:10.1532/hsf.3679 (Source: The Heart Surgery Forum)

Intravenous Interferon- β1a for the Treatment of Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury in Acute Myocardial Infarct in Pigs
CONCLUSION: In this acute IR injury animal model, IFN-β1a did not protect the myocardium from IR injury, but rather increased some of the unfavorable outcomes studied.PMID:33973512 | DOI:10.1532/hsf.3639 (Source: The Heart Surgery Forum)
