Operative Mortality and Complication Risk Model for All Major Cardiovascular Operations in Japan
Conclusions These risk models increased the discriminatory power of former models. Thus, our models can be said to reflect the current state of Japan. With respect to major complications, useful feedback can now be provided through the Japan Cardiovascular Surgery Database Web-based system.

Aortopulmonary Window and the Interrupted Aortic Arch: Midterm Results With Use of the Single-Patch Technique
Conclusions Primary anatomic repair of APW associated with IAA can be safely performed. The efficiency of the single-patch technique was confirmed by the restoration of normal functional anatomy of the great arteries and aortic arch during follow-up.

Coronary Artery Surgery Versus Percutaneous Coronary Intervention in Octogenarians: Long-Term Results
Conclusions In this real-world setting, surgical coronary revascularization remains the standard of care for patients with left main or multivessel disease. The long-term outcomes of current percutaneous coronary intervention technology in octogenarians are yet to be determined with adequately powered prospective randomized studies.

Surgical Ventricular Restoration: Is There Any Difference in Outcome Between Anterior and Posterior Remodeling?
Conclusions Patients presenting with posterior remodeling showed worse clinical signs of angina and congestive heart failure (CHF) and a higher proportion of moderate to severe MR; however in the present experience early and long-term outcomes after SVR seemed to be unaffected by remodeling location.

A More Specific Anticoagulation Regimen Is Required for Patients After the Cox-Maze Procedure
Conclusions Our results indicate that the decision to discontinue OAC after the Cox-Maze procedure should not be based solely on CHADS2 scores; rather, rhythm status, echocardiographic findings, and patient risk for bleeding should be considered. These findings underscore the need for an OAC protocol for patients who have undergone the Cox-Maze procedure with appropriate LAA management.

Posterior Papillary Muscle Anchoring Affects Remote Myofiber Stress and Pump Function: Finite Element Analysis
Conclusions PPMA reduces remote myofiber stress, which is proportional to the absolute distance of relocation and independent of anchoring point. Aggressive use of PPMA techniques to reduce remote myofiber stress may accelerate reverse LV remodeling without impairing LV function.
