Abstract Aortoesophageal fistula after thoracic endovascular aortic repair is a rare but fatal complication, and no clear guidelines exist in the literature for optimal management. Herein, we report a complex case of a patient with an infected thoracic endograft that led to an aortoesophageal fistula. The treatment comprised a two-stage open surgical approach—an extra-anatomic aortic bypass in the first stage, followed by explantation of the infected endograft with ligation of the descending tho...

Abstract Background Systematic screening for ascending thoracic aortic aneurysms and dilations does not exist currently with unknown prevalence and diagnostic yields. We evaluated the prevalence of ascending thoracic aortic dilation. Methods Computed tomography scans including the chest in adult patients carried out during 2016 were reviewed at our institution. Aortic dilation was defined as the ascending thoracic aorta diameter ≥ 4.0 cm, with sensitivity analyses using height-indexed values and...

Intraoperative surgical prosthetic heart valve (SHV) choice is a key determinant of successful surgery and positive postoperative outcomes. Currently, many controversies exist around the sizing and labelling of SHVs rendering the comparison of different valves difficult. To explore solutions, an expert Valve Labelling Task Force was jointly initiated by the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS), The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) and the American Association for Thoracic S...

Thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA), a typically silent but frequently lethal disease, is strongly influenced by underlying genetics. Approximately 30 genes have been associated with syndromic and non-syndromic familial thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection (TAAD) to date. An estimated 30% of patients with non-syndromic familial TAAD, which is typically inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, have a mutation in one of these genes. The underlying genetic mutation helps predict patients’ clinical ...

Abstract Non-syndromic thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection (TAAD) account for 95% of all TAAD cases and comprise a subset in which the lack of obvious clinical signs makes diagnosis a challenge. Despite the potentially fatal natural history, timely diagnosis and prophylactic surgical intervention allow restoration of near-normal life expectancy in TAAD patients, underlining the critical importance of screening tests. To date, more than 30 TAAD disease-causing genes have been identified, and ...
