Hepatic artery thrombosis (HAT) is a serious complication in patients undergoing orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). It is associated with a high graft loss and mortality rate. In this study, possible risk factors associated with early HAT (occurring within the first postoperative month) were evaluated using univariable and multivariable analyses. Nine-hundred-and-fourteen ...

Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) accounts for less that 1% of cardiac anomalies, and is defined as ventriculoarterial and atrioventricular (AV) discordance. The double discordant connection allows for survival with the right ventricle performing as the systemic ventricle, and the left ventricle as the pulmonary ventricle. We ...

The coronary artery anatomy of complete transposition with situs solitus/levocardia (CTSSL) has been well elucidated in the current era of arterial switch operation. However, coronary artery for complete transposition with situs solitus/dextrocardia (CTSSD) has never been documented. Coronary anatomy of transposition and aortopulmonary rotation were identified by angiography or surgical ...

Anatomically corrected malposition of great arteries (ACMGA) is associated with the leftward deviation of the proximal right coronary artery (RCA) away from the right atrioventricular (AV) groove. This anatomic feature allows a transannular subpulmonary patch plasty along the right AV groove between the RCA and the tricuspid annulus for relief ...

One well-documented complication of unrepaired d-transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) is progressive pulmonary vascular disease. It is generally accepted that pulmonary vascular disease will not develop if d-TGA repair is performed early in life. Herein, we report a number of repaired d-TGA, especially in older patients with Mustard/Senning procedures, ...
