Sinus of Valsalva aneurysms (SOVAs) might be congenital or acquired in origin. They might present as a rupture or as a consequence of compression on adjacent structures. The treatment of such aneurysms in adults is well documented. Calcified unruptured SOVAs are rarer and their management is not well elucidated, more ...

A 58-year-old man underwent an elective coronary bypass graft for severe four-vessel stenosis. Cardiogenic shock developed just after coronary bypass grafting with a LIMA to LAD and SVG to OM1/OM2 graft; the PDA was too small to graft. Despite significant inotropes and an IABP, the patient deteriorated in ICU with ...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has become an established technique for the treatment of aortic stenosis in patients who cannot undergo surgery. Although TAVI is obviously less invasive than open surgical repair, it is not free of complications. We report a case of unexplained refractory shock during transfemoral TAVI with ...

Saphenous vein graft interventions are recognised as high risk procedures for adverse outcomes. We present a case of a ruptured vein graft causing a focal hematoma that led to pulmonary artery compression and cardiogenic shock without the classical signs of tamponade. Multi-modality imaging revealed the aetiology and the hematoma resolved ...

Many published studies have shown that application of three-dimensional (3D) and real-time 3D (4D) ultrasound modalities can improve certain aspects of fetal echocardiography, but have left open the question of whether these modalities improved the accuracy of prenatal detection of anatomical fetal cardiovascular malformations. We aimed to determine whether 3D/4D ...

Urgent single-staged replacement of the aortic dissection involving the entire thoracic aorta was performed by using the modified pull-through technique via median sternotomy. Distal anastomosis was achieved via posterior pericardium to avoid the lateral thoracotomy and then the graft was pulled through the false lumen of the descending aorta into ...

Persistent truncus arteriosus associated with aortic arch obstruction (Van Praagh type A4) is a rare combination with an extremely high rate of mortality. Our current approach is staged biventricular repair following bilateral pulmonary artery banding (bPAB). The patient in case 1 underwent bPAB at five days old, then biventricular repair ...

Takayasu arteritis is a chronic inflammatory disease involving the aorta, its main branches and affects particularly young women. Symptomatic coronary artery disease and cardiogenic shock are rare signs of Takayasu arteritis. We describe a 47-year-old male patient in whom cardiogenic shock was the initial presentation of Takayasu arteritis with coronary, ...

We have devised a T-graft technique for selected extensive aortic arch replacement under antegrade cerebral perfusion. Under hypothermic circulatory arrest using antegrade cerebral perfusion, one graft was island-anastomosed to the supraaortic arteries. The other graft was anastomosed to the descending aorta. Proximal and distal grafts were then end-to-side anastomosed in ...

Blood blister-like aneurysms (BBAs) are rare but challenging to treat owing to their fragile, thin walls and poorly defined necks. A right-sided aortic arch is an uncommon congenital cardiac anomaly with an estimated incidence of only 0.1% and presents a challenge to intubation at vessels above the aortic arch. This ...

Although the optimal surgical treatment of the dilated aortic arch is controversial in patients with a bicuspid aortic valve, such exists in more than 70% of bicuspid aortic valve patients. Aortic wall histologic abnormalities are present from the aortic root to the distal arch regardless of aortic size. We describe ...
