Impact of COVID-19 on vascular patients worldwide: analysis of the COVIDSurg data
CONCLUSIONS: Mortality following vascular surgery in COVID positive patients was significantly higher than levels reported pre-pandemic, and similar to that seen in other specialties in the COVIDSurg cohort. Initiatives and surgical pathways that ensure vascular patients are protected from exposure to COVID-19 in the peri-operative period are vital to protect against excess mortality.PMID:35037445 | DOI:10.23736/S0021-9509.21.12024-5 (Source: The Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery)

Evaluation of ECG-gated CTA to quantify changes in geometry and dynamic behavior of the iliac artery after placement of the Gore Excluder Iliac Branch Endoprosthesis
This study aimed to provide detailed insights in the dynamic behavior and geometry of the common iliac artery (CIA) and IIA trajectory and how these are influenced after treatment with an IBE.METHODS: Pre- and postoperative electrocardiogram-gated computed tomography angiography (ECG-gated CTA) scans were acquired in a prospective study design and analyzed with in-house written algorithms designed for aorto-iliac and endoprosthesis deformation evaluation. Cardiac pulsatility-induced motion patterns and pathlengths were computed by tracking pre-defined locations on the aorto-iliac tract. Centerlines through the CIA-IIA traj...

Aortic valve replacement via right anterolateral minithoracotomy - preventing adverse events during the initial learning curve
CONCLUSIONS: RALT-AVR can be performed with acceptable procedural times and satisfactory outcomes. For a well-trained surgeon, adapting to this new procedure does not expose patients to an increased risk, when patient selection and procedural planning are applied appropriately. Cumulative sum failure analysis is an appropriate tool to monitor the transition from standard AVR to the technically more demanding RALT-AVR.PMID:34825793 | DOI:10.23736/S0021-9509.21.11981-0 (Source: The Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery)

Initial experience and early outcomes of the management of acute pulmonary embolism using the FlowTriever mechanical thrombectomy device
CONCLUSIONS: The mechanical thrombectomy device for submassive and massive pulmonary embolism is promising and appears a safe and effective procedure with 100% technical success, no complications, short intensive care requirement/stay, and good early clinical outcomes.PMID:34825796 | DOI:10.23736/S0021-9509.21.12081-6 (Source: The Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery)

Aortic valve replacement via right anterolateral minithoracotomy - preventing adverse events during the initial learning curve
CONCLUSIONS: RALT-AVR can be performed with acceptable procedural times and satisfactory outcomes. For a well-trained surgeon, adapting to this new procedure does not expose patients to an increased risk, when patient selection and procedural planning are applied appropriately. Cumulative sum failure analysis is an appropriate tool to monitor the transition from standard AVR to the technically more demanding RALT-AVR.PMID:34825793 | DOI:10.23736/S0021-9509.21.11981-0 (Source: The Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery)

Stability of the aneurysmatic sac post-EVAR could no longer be a reliable criterion of healing
J Cardiovasc Surg (Torino). 2021 Nov 26. doi: 10.23736/S0021-9509.21.12014-2. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Evaluation of the impact of aneurysm sac behavior in terms of either stability or shrinkage after endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) on long-term clinical outcomes.METHODS: A retrospective study was conducted on 1483 consecutive patients who underwent EVAR from 1999 to 2021 at our institution. 1037 patients met inclusion criteria (1037/1483, 69.9%): abdominal aortic or aorto-iliac aneurysm, elective surgery, follow-up (FU) ≥ 12 months. Patients who had sac stability (330/1037, 31.8%) and patients who ...

Cardiac tumors: imaging findings, clinical correlations and surgical treatment in a 15 years single-center experience
CONCLUSIONS: Cardiac tumors are rare and mostly benign; their nature and clinics related to TTE appearance. CT and CMR may be used sinergically with TTE.
