In extreme situations, like hyperacute rejection of heart transplant or major heart trauma, heart preservation may not be possible. Our experimental team works on a project of peripheral ECMO support in acardia as a bridge to heart transplantation or artificial heart implantation. An extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support was established ...

Percutaneous closure of patent arterial ducts with the Amplatzer Ductal Occluder has become an effective and widely accepted alternative to surgical management. Although rarely, the occluder can be dislodged after an initially successful deployment, and with catastrophic consequences. We describe such a case in a 12-month-old girl who underwent transcatheter ...

Flow diverters (FDs) are increasingly used to treat difficult intracranial aneurysms. To test whether treatment challenges posed by giant curved sidewall (cSW) and endwall bifurcation (EwB) aneurysms can be overcome using very low porosity devices. Large and giant EwB (n=12) and cSW aneurysms (n =5) were constructed in 17 dogs. ...

A persistent left-to-right shunt through a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) increases the rate of hydrostatic fluid filtration into the lung's interstitium, impairs pulmonary mechanics, and prolongs the need for mechanical ventilation. In preclinical trials, pharmacologic PDA closure leads to improved alveolarization and minimizes the impaired postnatal alveolar development that is ...

Surgery for complex pulmonary aspergilloma is known to be technically challenging, often for indurated hilar structures and obliterated pleural space. We report a case of left pneumonectomy for pulmonary aspergilloma with a history of patent ductus arteriosus ligation via anterolateral thoracotomy and aortopexy via median sternotomy and pericardiotomy. Left pneumonectomy ...

Fistulization between the aorta and the right atrium is a rare complication of ascending aortic dissection. Because of the typical haemodynamic unstability, the diagnosis is often made by bedside or intraoperative transoesophageal echocardiography. The treatment is surgical, but with very high mortality. We describe a case of type A aortic ...

Anterior clinoidectomy is an essential manoeuvre for clipping paraclinoid internal carotid artery (ICA) aneurysms. However, the use of a drill or an ultrasonic bone curette in an anterior clinoidectomy involves a high risk for heat or mechanical injury of the superior projecting paraclinoid aneurysm. We report our technique for microscopic ...

The aim of this study was to evaluate a new type of occluder for patent ductus arteriosus. Patent ductus arteriosus was established in a canine model by anastomosing a length of autologous jugular vein to the descending aorta and the left pulmonary artery in an end-to-side fashion. Transcatheter closure of ...

The identification of infundibula on noninvasive imaging modalities may be challenging. Because these lesions have generally been viewed as nonpathological, distinguishing them from small or micro-aneurysms is important. A 39-year-old male was diagnosed with recurrence of typical orgasmic headache. An outpoutching arising from the distal part of the right P1 ...
