Coronary artery bypass grafting using right gastroepiploic artery and pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy are both well known and commonly performed procedures independently. However, pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy after coronary artery bypass grafting using right gastroepiploic artery has not been reported in the literature. We report the first case with operative demonstration of pylorus-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy ...

Large artery atherosclerosis is an important cause of ischemic stroke. Recent randomized clinical trials have helped clarify the treatment options for conditions such as carotid stenosis and intracranial atherosclerosis. This review outlines the primary findings of these trials and provides current recommendations for treatment. Carotid revascularization is preferred in patients ...

As an alternative to branched or fenestrated aortic stent-grafts, the "snorkel" or "chimney graft" strategy is a feasible endovascular option, particularly for juxtarenal aneurysms. When more than two visceral vessels require revascularization, however, the summative displacement of the main body endograft theoretically increases gutter formation with subsequent endoleak. The "terrace" ...

Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is the most common congenital cardiac malformation, occurring in 1% to 2% of the population. Eventually, 20% develop clinically important valvar regurgitation requiring surgical intervention. Aortic valve repair avoids anticoagulation and prosthetic valve-related complications. This study evaluated long-term durability of BAV repair. From 1985 to 2011, ...
