To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report describing robotic beating-heart quadruple all-arterial totally endoscopic coronary artery bypass combined with percutaneous coronary intervention attempting complete revascularization (residual SYNTAX score 0). A 66-year-old male with severe triple-vessel coronary artery disease underwent percutaneous coronary intervention for a sub-total occlusion of the right coronary artery as the initial component of a hybrid revascularization strategy. Subsequently, the left coronary system was revascularized via robotic beating-heart totally endoscopic coronary artery bypass with bilateral internal mammary artery grafts...

OBJECTIVES: In this study, our aim was to explore how coronary artery bypass grafting affects quality of life, and how this varies with age, particularly with patients at risk of deterioration. METHODS: In a retrospective, multicentre cohort study, patients with isolated coronary artery bypass grafting and electively operated between January 2011 and January 2015 with pre- and postoperative quality-of-life data were included. Patients were classified into 3 age groups: <65, 65-79 and ≥80 years...

OBJECTIVES: Decellularized pulmonary homografts (DPH) have shown excellent results for pulmonary valve replacement. However, controlled multicentre studies are lacking to date. METHODS: Prospective European multicentre trial evaluating DPH for pulmonary valve replacement. Matched comparison of DPH to bovine jugular vein (BJV) conduits and cryopreserved homografts (CH) considering patient age, type of heart defect and previous procedures. RESULTS: In total, 121 patients (59 female) were prospectively enrolled (August 2014-December 2016), age 21...

OBJECTIVES: We sought to analyse perioperative outcome, long-term mortality, frequency and causes of reintervention, and survival benefit in a contemporary cohort of patients undergoing proximal thoracic aortic surgery. METHODS: Participants comprised all patients undergoing open surgery for proximal thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) (n = 319) and thoracic aortic dissection type A (TAD) (n = 229) during 2005-2014 at the Department of Thoracic Surgery, Uppsala University Hospital...

OBJECTIVES: Aortic valve-sparing operations have been shown to produce fewer valve-related complications than valve replacement. The aortic root is a morphological and functional unit in which the annulus plays an important role on dynamism, shape and geometry of the valve with different results in bicuspid aortic valves (BAVs) or tricuspid aortic valves (TAVs). The aim is to evaluate the differences in the size and shape of the aortic annulus between native BAVs and TAVs using ECG-gated computed tomography (CT) after a reimplantation procedure...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to evaluate early- and mid-term outcome and aortic remodelling in patients undergoing implantation of 2 different frozen elephant trunk prostheses, either the Thoraflex™ hybrid (Vascutek, Inchinnan, UK) and the E-vita Open (Jotec Inc., Hechingen, Germany) for acute aortic dissection. METHODS: All consecutive patients [n = 88; median age 59 (49-67) years; 69% male] undergoing surgery with a frozen elephant trunk prosthesis for acute aortic dissection from August 2005 until March 2018 were included in this study...

Performing a left ventricular assist device outflow graft anastomosis in redo cases with a short ascending aorta and open vein grafts requires side clamping of the aorta and may necessitate temporary clamping of the vein grafts to optimize the surgical field. We aim to describe the technique and report our experience with applying the HeartString® device for the anastomosis of the left ventricular assist device outflow graft in 2 male patients with ischaemic cardiomyopathy following coronary artery bypass surgery...

OBJECTIVES: Our goal was to compare short- and midterm outcomes after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) using 2 different revascularization strategies. METHODS: A total of 6895 patients were included who had CABG in Sweden from 2009 to 2015 using the left internal mammary artery to the left anterior descending artery and either a single sequential saphenous vein graft connecting the left and right coronary territories to the aorta (snake graft, n = 2122) or separate vein grafts to both territories (n = 4773)...

OBJECTIVES: Minimally invasive video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) was first introduced in the early 1990s. For decades, numerous non-randomized studies demonstrated advantages of VATS over thoracotomy with lower morbidity and shorter hospital stay, but only recently did a randomized trial document that VATS results in lower pain scores and better quality of life. Opposing arguments for VATS have always been increased costs and concerns about oncological adequacy. In this paper, we aim to investigate the cost-effectiveness of VATS...

OBJECTIVES: We sought to investigate cusp size limitations for valve repair in patients with aortic regurgitation (AR). METHODS: Preoperative computed tomography was performed in 105 patients. Cusp geometric height (GH) and annulus size were measured. Mean patient age was 60.7 ± 13.7 years. Mean GH of 3 cusps was used in the analysis. Annulus cusp mismatch was graded using predicted coaptation length. Patients were categorized by mean GH into group S (GH <16 mm; n = 35) or L (GH ≥16 mm; n = 70)...

OBJECTIVES: Surgical repair of pectus excavatum is typically carried out immediately prior to puberty. However, at the time of surgery, some psychosocial issues, such as behavioural disorders may already have developed and the likelihood of these psychosocial disorders resolving after surgery is unclear. For this reason, some surgeons choose to perform surgical repair at an earlier age in some children. The study retrospectively compares the rate of behavioural disorders in children undergoing the Nuss procedure at 4 vs...

We present a case to demonstrate the feasibility of pulmonary artery monitoring with the CardioMEMS sensor for the preoperative optimization of patients with end-stage heart failure undergoing LVAD surgery. Additionally, we demonstrate the feasibility of combining two state-of-the-art techniques by integrating haemodynamic feedback from CardioMEMS and static pump settings of an LVAD. CardioMEMS aids in the remote monitoring of LVAD patients with the potential of identifying complications, pump dysfunction or filling status alterations...

OBJECTIVES: The impact of sutureless and rapid deployment (SURD) valves on the clinical outcomes of patients undergoing minimally invasive aortic valve replacement (MI-AVR) has still to be defined. The aim of this study was to assess clinical characteristics and in-hospital results of patients receiving SURD-AVR through less invasive approaches in the large population of the Sutureless and Rapid Deployment International Registry (SURD-IR). METHODS: Of the 1935 patients who received primary isolated SURD-AVR between 2009 and 2018, a total of 1418 (73...
