OBJECTIVES: Surgical treatment of infective endocarditis (IE) remains a challenge. The Ross procedure offers the benefit of a living substitute in the aortic position but it is a more complex operation which may lead to increased operative risk. The aim of this study was to assess the safety and late outcomes of the Ross procedure for the treatment of active IE. METHODS: From 2000 to 2019, a total of 31 consecutive patients underwent a Ross procedure to treat active IE (mean age 43 +/- 12 years,...

Abstract Background The bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) frequently requires surgical intervention for aortic regurgitation (AR) and aneurysm. Valve-preserving surgery for BAV has evolved over the last 25 years. Methods We summarized our experience in BAV repair with special focus on predictors of failure and specific surgical techniques addressing them. Results Excellent repair stability can be achieved if a standardized approach addressing all pathologic components of aortic valve and root is used....

Abstract Objective Del Nido cardioplegia solution (DNS) offers prolonged cardiac protection with single-dose administration; this is particularly interesting for aortic root surgery. However, there is scarsity of data supporting its safety in adults undergoing complex cardiac surgery such as aortic root repair. We hypothesized that DNS and blood cardioplegia solution (BCS) provide equivalent safety during aortic root surgery. Methods Between January 2015 and June 2018, 283 consecutive patients u...

Abstract Background Many studies investigating fenestration in the context of Fontan surgery have been showing controversial results when it comes to whether or not this procedure truly improves the outcomes of the surgery. The aim of this meta-analysis was to compare the early outcomes of a fenestrated (F) versus a non-fenestrated (NF) Fontan procedure. Methods We have researched the PubMed, EMBASE and Cochrane Library databases for articles measuring the outcomes of a fenestrated versus a non-...

Abstract Background There is no systematic evidence review of the long-term results of surgical pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) dedicated to adults with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF) and pulmonary regurgitation. Methods Our primary objective was to determine whether PVR reduced long-term mortality in adults with rTOF compared to conservative therapy. Secondary objectives were to determine the postoperative incidence rate of death, the changes in functional capacity and in RV volumes and ...
