Surgical correction of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection is associated with an important risk of postrepair pulmonary vein obstruction. Primary sutureless anastomosis at the time of initial surgical repair might mitigate that risk. A simplified primary sutureless technique is described in this report.

Pulmonary artery sarcoma is a rare disease with poor prognosis that has not been reported in Hong Kong. Its clinical and radiological presentation frequently mimics pulmonary embolism. Diagnosis is usually delayed until surgery, which is the treatment option that provides the best survival. Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration is an ...

Life-threatening hemorrhaging due to nasopharyngeal internal carotid artery (ICA) aberrancy may occur during routine nasopharyngeal surgery. To understand better the potential adverse effect of nasopharyngeal ICA aberrancy on routine nasopharyngeal surgery, we classified aberrant nasopharyngeal ICAs and analyzed the differences in mean distances from the ICA to nasopharyngeal subsites between ...

Accurate echocardiographic evaluation of the pulmonary valve is technically difficult because of its close proximity to the left lung, which often limits decision making. Pulmonary valvotomy is the intervention of choice for symptomatic pulmonary valve stenosis, but fluoroscopy lacks appropriate real time anatomic detail. In this report, we present a ...

Percutaneous cannulation allows a prompt approach for establishing veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation in acute cardiopulmonary failure. Access to an artery or a vein can sometimes be difficult with severe complications also with percutaneous approach. To reduce morbidity, we describe our technique of a real-time ultrasound cannulation of the femoral vessels.

A blunt stump-type entry of chronic total occlusion (CTO) is one of the most difficult morphologic features to overcome in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), which often requires the guidance of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) to identify the entry point. However, real-time, IVUS-guided PCI usually requires an 8 Fr guiding catheter. In ...

Oxidants derived from myeloperoxidase (MPO) contribute to inflammatory diseases. In vivo MPO activity is commonly assessed by the accumulation of 3-chlorotyrosine (3-Cl-Tyr), although 3-Cl-Tyr is formed at low yield and is subject to metabolism. Here we show that MPO activity can be assessed using hydroethidine (HE), a probe commonly employed ...

Nogo-B (Reticulon 4B) is considered to be a novel vascular marker, which may have a protective role in injury-induced neointima formation and atherosclerosis. Nogo A/B is found to be crucial for monocyte/macrophage recruitment in acute inflammation and it is expressed in CD68 + macrophages. We hypothesize that macrophage infiltration in atherosclerosis is ...

Peripheral arterial thrombolysis is used in the management of peripheral arterial ischaemia. Streptokinase was originally used but safety concerns led to a search for other agents. Urokinase and recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) have increasingly become established as first line agents for peripheral arterial thrombolysis. Potential advantages of these agents ...

Real-time assessment of pulmonary vein (PV) disconnection is possible using an inner circular mapping catheter during cryoablation of atrial fibrillation (AF). However, it has been recently demonstrated that such continuous monitoring may only be possible in <50% of PVs. We hypothesized that a stepwise mapping approach, including pacing manoeuvres, could ...

Many adrenal venous sampling (AVS) protocols require repeated samplings before and after adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) stimulation. Maintaining catheter selectivity in the adrenal vein over time is essential but can be challenging, especially in the short right adrenal vein, where the catheter is often in an unstable position. The aim of ...

Coronary artery stenosis is commonly treated by stent placement via percutaneous intervention, at times requiring multiple stents that may overlap. Stent overlap is associated with increased risk of adverse clinical outcome. While changes in local blood flow are suspected to play a role therein, hemodynamics in arteries with overlapping stents ...

Ischemia monitoring cannot always be performed by 12-lead ECG. Hence, the individual performance of the ECG leads is crucial. No experimental data on the ECG's specificity for transient ischemia exist. In 45 patients a 19-lead ECG was registered during a 1-minute balloon occlusion of a coronary artery (left anterior descending ...
