Pediatric Orthotropic Heart Transplant

Erhan Urganci, Thomas Aschacher, Dominik Wiedemann, Judith Schiefer, Andreas Zuckermann, Günther Laufer, Ina Michel-Behnke & Daniel Zimpfer
Introduction
In pediatric patients with severe congenital heart disease and end-stage heart failure, cardiac transplant may be the only option. Especially in patients with a medical history of multiple open-heart surgeries, it is a technically demanding procedure and requires a well-trained team with experience in congenital heart disease (1). The first attempt of pediatric heart transplantation was made by Dr Adrian Kantrowitz in New York in 1967. Considerable progress has been made since that time in...

Aspergilloma Resection in a Partial Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection of the Left Upper Lobe

Francesco Petrella, Luca Bertolaccini, Riccardo Orlandi & Lorenzo Spaggiari
Partial anomalous pulmonary vein connection (PAPVC) is due to the failure of one or more of the pulmonary veins to be incorporated into the left atrium, thus flowing into the systemic circulation (1). The incidence of PAPVC at autopsy is between 0.6% - 0.7%, and on the right side is twice as common as PAPVC from the left lung. The most common form of PAPVC is the one in which a right upper pulmonary vein...

Robotic Left Upper Lobe Apicoposterior (S1 + S2) Segmentectomy: A Case Report and Discussion

Ankit Dhamija, , Alper Toker & Ghulam Abbas
The authors present the case of a 79-year-old man with a distant history of smoking who presented with a slowly enlarging 1 cm nodule. This was initially found on surveillance for a thoracic aortic aneurysm two years prior to resection and the authors were following it with repeat scans. On positron emission tomography (PET) scan, there was no metabolic activity in either the nodule or in the mediastinum. As monitoring continued, it began to grow...

Southampton Reviews in Cardiothoracic Surgery Chapter Five: Cardiac Physiology, Structure, and Function

, , Szabolcs Miskolczi & Sunil Ohri
Many day-to-day practices in patient perioperative care are exercised as second nature by surgeons. These practices almost always work, but occasionally some efforts make a situation worse. A solid understanding of the fundamentals of the physiological basis of day-to-day practice enables surgeons to provide better quality of care for patients.

Norwood and Batista Procedure in Neonatal Dilated Cardiomyopathy

James Tweddell & Alan O'Donnell
The Batista procedure, or ventriculoplasty, was originally described by Dr Randas Batista and colleagues as a treatment for ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy. There have been only a few case reports for this strategy in the management of neonatal dilated cardiomyopathy. Even fewer cases have been reported of a combined Norwood and Batista procedure for the management of these patients.
The patient was born at 37 weeks, and is now a 5-day-old 3.3 kg boy with an...

HeartMate 3™ Implant in Pediatric Patient With Dilated Cardiomyopathy

David Morales & Alan ODonnell
The patient was a 10-year-old, 26.7 kg, girl with dilated cardiomyopathy. The patient had a familial history and was admitted to an outside hospital in decompensated heart failure. She had complaints for two days of severe abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting, and was tolerating minimal PO intake. She was tachycardic with waxing and waning perfusion throughout her stay. An abdominal computed tomography scan was performed to evaluate her abdominal pain, which identified bilateral pleural effusions...

Uniportal VATS Anatomic Right Basal Segmentectomy (S7-10)

Julio Sesma, Carlos Galvez, , Sergio Bolufer &
Anatomic sublobar resections have been used primarily for benign pulmonary lesions, lung metastases, and early stage lung cancer. There are many recent studies that support the oncological results of anatomic sublobar resections compared to lobectomy in terms of recurrence and overall survival [1-8]. In addition, the procedure’s performance through minimally invasive procedures is possible by experienced teams [9, 10]. The authors present a sublobar resection performed for a 50-year-old woman who was diagnosed with a...

Robotic Left-Sided Excision of a Bronchogenic Cyst

Omar Zibdeh, Christopher Bayliss, & Joel Dunning
The patient was a 35-year-old woman who had reported experiencing an intermittent and really productive cough for several years that was very offensive and troublesome in nature. She also reported intermittent chest infections over the years. She was diagnosed with a left main bronchus cyst from her noncontrast computed tomography scan after excluding an esophageal anomaly on a barium swallow.
The cyst was interestingly collapsed because obviously it had a connection to the airways, and the...

Anterior Translocation of the Circumflex Aortic Arch

, , Lisa Hornberger & Mohammed Al Aklabi
This video demonstrates an anterior translocation of the circumflex aortic arch for the management of esophageal compression.A 9-year-old boy diagnosed with a 22q11 deletion had a longstanding history of swallowing difficulty. His parents noted that he always had to have a sip of fluid for solid ingestion. The rest of his medical history was unremarkable.An echocardiogram showed cervical right aortic arch with a probable aberrant left subclavian artery. Videofluoroscopic swallowing exam and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy...

Thymoma Resection Using Subxiphoid Uniportal Approach

, Samer Al Sawalhi, &
There are different types of anterior mediastinal tumors, such as thymoma, germ cell tumors, ectopic parathyroid tumors, and lymphoid tumors. Completeness of tumor resection has been considered the most important determinant of long-term survival, therefore surgical resection of these tumors should be both safe and radical. Subxiphoid access is a novel approach for anterior mediastinal tumor resection. To perform surgery via this access, specially designed long instruments are required. Subxiphoid access provides excellent visualization of...

Prakash P. Punjabi
Prakash P. Punjabi of the Imperial College in London, UK, presents the argument for conventional approaches for the treatment of mitral valve disease.This presentation was originally given during the SCTS Ionescu University program at the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery in Great Britain and Ireland.

Left Internal Mammary Artery Harvesting: The Skeletonization Technique

Anh Vo, Tuong Nguyen & Dinh Nguyen
This video shows the basic technique of skeletonized left internal mammary artery (LIMA) harvesting. Skeletonization is an advanced technique of graft harvesting for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), and while it requires meticulous attention, it has many advantages. For example, skeletonization of the IMA can minimize sternal ischemia and lower the risk of mediastinitis, and the graft is longer and larger than a pedicled IMA.
A conventional median sternotomy is performed in the usual manner. A...

Harmonic HD–Powered Right Upper Lobectomy

Marco Nardini & Felice Granato
Mr Felice Granato demonstrates a thoracoscopic right upper lobectomy, which was performed for a primary pulmonary malignancy. The Harmonic HD was adopted for sealing of one of the segmental arteries (A2). It was also used to dissect the soft tissues, the pleura, the pulmonary parenchyma, and importantly, to perform an extensive and homeostatic lymphadenectomy.
The video also demonstrates the key steps of the procedure, the segmental arterial branches of the right upper lobe, and their relationship...

From Bench to Reality: Development of Simulation, 3D Printing, and Air-Pilot-Training Concept Course for Endoscopic Mitral Valve Surgery

Peyman Sardari Nia
Endoscopic mitral valve repair is one of the most difficult procedures to learn. The learning curve is steep. This steep learning curve has partially to do with the fact that the operation is done with long-shafted instruments, with surgeon looking at the monitor rather than into the wound. Acquiring endoscopic skills with long-shafted instruments is a process that no one can escape from, and acquiring these skills in patients is not logical or efficient. In...
