Abstract Background Patients undergoing postinfarction ventricular septal defect (VSD) repair are at high risk for early morbidity and mortality, but little is known about subsequent clinical events. This study uses short-term clinical data from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) National Database linked with Medicare data to examine longer-term outcomes in these patients. Methods This was a retrospective review of the STS National Database to link with Medicare data all adults (≥65 years) w...

Abstract Background The object of this initiative was to perform a prospective, multi-center survey of patients following lung resection to assess the amount of opioids consumed and disposition of unused opioids to inform the development of evidence-based prescribing guidelines. Methods Adults undergoing lung resection via minimally invasive (MIS, n=108) or thoracotomy (n=45) were identified prospectively from three academic centers (3/2017 - 1/2018) to complete a 28-question telephone survey 21...

Abstract Background An increase in the life expectancy of the general population has led to heightened numbers of elderly patients in need of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Surgical revascularization in octogenarians is becoming more commonplace and outcomes in this cohort continue to gain relevance. Methods All patients who underwent isolated CABG (n=7048) at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center from 2010-2017 were reviewed. A comparative analysis between octogenarians (≥80 year...

Abstract Hydatid cyst is an important health problem throughout the world and it is caused by the larval form of Echinococcus granulosus. Although it is most commonly located in the liver and lungs, hydatid cyst can also affect other organs because the oncospheres spread through the bloodstream. The disease may have many different clinical presentations. Although it is a benign disease, sometimes it can cause serious morbidity and even mortality. Here, the case of a 33-year-old male patient who ...
Abstract A case of iatrogenic RGEA injury during laparoscopic transhiatal esophagectomy is reported. We describe the microvascular repair of the RGEA and right gastro-epiploic vein (RGEV). The subsequent intra-operative decision making with regards to a staged, single-admission successful esophagectomy is discussed. This is the first reported case of a single-admission, staged, esophagectomy where the gastric conduit could be preserved following RGEA/V transection.

Abstract Background Achieving negative margins for adenoid cystic carcinoma (ACC) of the trachea can be technically difficult. This study evaluated the impact of positive margins on prognosis and tested the hypothesis that radiation improves survival in the setting of incomplete resection. Methods The impact of margin status and adjuvant therapy on overall survival of patients with tracheal ACC in the National Cancer Data Base (1998-2014) who underwent resection with known margin status and with...

Abstract We report a case of intolerance to warfarin. A 20-year-old woman with toe pain was diagnosed as myxoma with multiple systemic embolism. She was prescribed warfarin for remaining embolic pain after myxoma excision and mitral annuloplasty. Even on 1 mg of warfarin, INR was much increased. The patient have the Cytochrome P450 2C9 (CYP2C9)*3/*3 and vitamin K epoxide reductase complex subunit 1 (VKORC1) 1639AA genotype, extremely rare in Koreans. Based on this result, we assessed the potenti...

Abstract Background Younger gestational age (GA) is known to be associated with worse outcomes after congenital cardiac surgery. We sought to determine the impact of GA on surgical outcomes of single ventricle palliation (SVP). Methods Among the 284 patients with functionally single ventricle who were born between January 2005 and December 2014, 50 neonates were born prematurely (GA Results BCPA and the completion Fontan operation were performed in 200 and 169 patients, respectively. Overall sur...

Abstract Background Tricuspid valve endocarditis among intravenous drug abusers is increasing in prevalence in modern societies. The increased risk of reinfection in such patients makes surgical reintervention a risky decision. Repair is preferred over replacement to minimize the presence of foreign material in a potentially infected field. Methods A retrospective, observational, comparative, non-randomized study included all living patients presenting with isolated tricuspid valve endocarditis ...

ABSTRACT Background Congenital heart patients have high heart-transplant waitlist mortality, and mechanical support is suboptimal. To evaluate feasibility of cardiac grafts from a genetically-engineered triple-knockout pig as a bridge to allotransplantation, preformed anti-pig antibodies were measured in pediatric and adult patients. Methods Flow cytometry measured serum IgM/IgG binding to wild-type and triple-knockout red blood cells (RBCs), with binding to human O-negative RBCs as a negative c...
