Cerebral injury after cardiac surgery: identification of a group at extraordinary risk. Multicenter Study of Perioperative Ischemia Research Group (McSPI) and the Ischemia Research Education Foundation (IREF) Investigators. (1/3141)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Cerebral injury after cardiac surgery is now recognized as a serious and costly healthcare problem mandating immediate attention. To effect solution, those subgroups of patients at greatest risk must be identified, thereby allowing efficient implementation of new clinical strategies. No such subgroup has been identified; however, patients undergoing intracardiac surgery are thought to be at high risk, but comprehensive data regarding specific risk, impact on cost, and discharge disposition are not available. METHODS: We prospectively studied 273 patients enrolled from 24 diverse US medical centers, who were undergoing intracardiac and coronary artery surgery. Patient data were collected using standardized methods and included clinical, historical, specialized testing, neurological outcome and autopsy data, and measures of resource utilization. Adverse outcomes were defined a priori and determined after database closure by a blinded independent panel. Stepwise logistic regression models were developed to estimate the relative risks associated with clinical history and intraoperative and postoperative events. RESULTS: Adverse cerebral outcomes occurred in 16% of patients (43/273), being nearly equally divided between type I outcomes (8.4%; 5 cerebral deaths, 16 nonfatal strokes, and 2 new TIAs) and type II outcomes (7.3%; 17 new intellectual deterioration persisting at hospital discharge and 3 newly diagnosed seizures). Associated resource utilization was significantly increased--prolonging median intensive care unit stay from 3 days (no adverse cerebral outcome) to 8 days (type I; P<0.001) and from 3 to 6 days (type II; P<0.001), and increasing hospitalization by 50% (type II, P=0.04) to 100% (type I, P<0.001). Furthermore, specialized care after hospital discharge was frequently necessary in those with type I outcomes, in that only 31% returned home compared with 85% of patients without cerebral complications (P<0.001). Significant risk factors for type I outcomes related primarily to embolic phenomena, including proximal aortic atherosclerosis, intracardiac thrombus, and intermittent clamping of the aorta during surgery. For type II outcomes, risk factors again included proximal aortic atherosclerosis, as well as a preoperative history of endocarditis, alcohol abuse, perioperative dysrhythmia or poorly controlled hypertension, and the development of a low-output state after cardiopulmonary bypass. CONCLUSIONS: These prospective multicenter findings demonstrate that patients undergoing intracardiac surgery combined with coronary revascularization are at formidable risk, in that 1 in 6 will develop cerebral complications that are frequently costly and devastating. Thus, new strategies for perioperative management--including technical and pharmacological interventions--are now mandated for this subgroup of cardiac surgery patients.  (+info)

A critical appraisal of the quality of the management of infective endocarditis. (2/3141)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to assess the quality of the management of infective endocarditis. BACKGROUND: Although many guidelines on the management of infective endocarditis exist, the quality of this management has not been evaluated. METHODS: We collected data on all patients (116) hospitalized with infective endocarditis over 1 year in all hospitals in the Rhone-Alpes region (France). RESULTS: Prophylactic antibiotics were not given before infective endocarditis to 8/11 cardiac patients at risk and who underwent an at risk procedure. Among the 55 cardiac patients at risk and with fever and who consulted a physician, blood cultures were not performed before antibiotic therapy was initiated for 32 patients. In-hospital antibiotic therapy was incorrect for 23 patients. The portal of entry was not treated for 16/61 patients with an accessible portal of entry. Among the 19 patients who had severe heart failure or fever persisting more than 2 weeks in spite of antibiotic therapy and who could have undergone early surgery, surgery was delayed for five, and not performed for three. Overall, the average score was 15/20. CONCLUSIONS: More information on the management of infective endocarditis should be widely disseminated to the physicians' and the dentists' communities and to the patients at risk.  (+info)

Biventricular repair approach in ducto-dependent neonates with hypoplastic but morphologically normal left ventricle. (3/3141)

OBJECTIVES: Increased afterload and multilevel LV obstruction is constant. We assumed that restoration of normal loading conditions by relief of LV obstructions promotes its growth, provided that part of the cardiac output was preoperatively supported by the LV, whatever the echocardiographic indexes. BACKGROUND: Whether to perform uni- or biventricular repair in ducto dependent neonates with hypoplastic but morphologically normal LV (hypoplastic left heart syndrome classes II & III) remains unanswered. Echocardiographic criteria have been proposed for surgical decision. METHODS: Twenty ducto dependent neonates presented with this anomaly. All had aortic coarctation associated to multilevel LV obstruction. Preoperative echocardiographic assessment showed: mean EDLW of 12.4 +/- 3.03 ml/m2 and mean Rhodes score of -1.73 +/-0.8. Surgery consisted in relief of LV outflow tract obstruction by coarctation repair in all associated to aortic commissurotomy in one and ASD closure in 2. RESULTS: There were 3 early and 2 late deaths. Failure of biventricular repair and LV growth was obvious in patients with severe anatomic mitral stenosis. The other demonstrated growth of the left heart. At hospital discharge the EDLVV was 19.4+/-3.12 ml/m2 (p = 0.0001) and the Rhodes score was -0.38+/-1.01 (p = 0.0003). Actuarial survival and freedom from reoperation rates at 5 years were 72.5% and 46%, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: Biventricular repair can be proposed to ducto dependent neonates with hypoplastic but morphologically normal LV provided that all anatomical causes of LV obstruction can be relieved. Secondary growth of the left heart then occurs; however, the reoperation rate is high.  (+info)

Echocardiographic and morphological correlations in tetralogy of Fallot. (4/3141)

AIMS: Our aim was to clarify the location and structure of the outlet septum relative to the free-standing subpulmonary infundibulum in the setting of tetralogy of Fallot and to examine its relationship to the other components of the subpulmonary outflow tract, determining their potential influence on clinical outcome. METHODS AND RESULTS: We studied prospectively 41 patients with tetralogy of Fallot (mean age 14 +/- 10.9 months) prior to surgical repair, and compared them with 15 patients undergoing closure of a ventricular septal defect associated with malalignment of the outlet septum but no subpulmonary infundibular stenosis (Eisenmenger ventricular septal defect), and 20 healthy controls. We also examined available autopsied hearts from cases with uncorrected tetralogy of Fallot (8) and Eisenmenger ventricular septal defect (13). Data were indexed for body surface area, and diameter of the tricuspid valve, respectively. The overall length of the subpulmonary infundibulum, including the extent of the muscular outlet septum, was significantly greater for patients with tetralogy of Fallot compared to normals (2.34 +/- 0.6 vs 1.46 +/- 0.34 cm/BSA0.5, P<0.001), whereas the difference between those with tetralogy of Fallot and an Eisenmenger ventricular septal defect was confined to the degree of narrowing of the subpulmonary outlet (0.43 +/- 0.22 vs 2.17 +/- 0.64 cm/BSA0.5, P<0.001). Within the tetralogy of Fallot group, there were linear relationships between deviation of the outlet septum (r= -0.61, P<0.005) and the diameter of the pulmonary valvar orifice (r=0.75, P<0.001), suggesting that growth of the pulmonary arteries may be related to this feature. When patients requiring a transannular patch as part of their surgical repair were compared with those not needing this procedure, differences were found in the diameter of the pulmonary valvar orifice and the pulmonary trunk, but not in the dimensions of the outlet septum. CONCLUSION: The position of the outlet septum in relationship to the remainder of the muscular subpulmonary infundibulum represents a hallmark of tetralogy of Fallot, permitting its differentiation from Eisenmenger ventricular septal defects and normal hearts.  (+info)

Modified Fontan operation. Considerations for the determination of the appropriate procedure. (5/3141)

BACKGROUND: Although the surgical results of the modified Fontan operation continues to improve, there are various advantages and disadvantages in terms of the post operative condition associated with the Fontan modifications. Late morbidity and mortality are mainly due to arrhythmias, thromboembolic complications, systemic venous hypertension and infective endocarditis. We reported our experience of the modified Fontan operation to determine an appropriate procedure for each patient. METHODS AND RESULTS: Seven patients (ranging from the age 1-14 years) underwent a modified Fontan operation including a lateral tunnel (n = 1), extracardiac conduit (n = 2) and autogenous atrial tunnel (n = 4). There was one hospital death due to sepsis in which the patient underwent lateral tunnel procedure. The mean follow up of another six patients was 20 months (ranging from 1-39 months) and all patients were classified as NYHA class I, and remained in normal sinus rhythm without any thromboembolic complications. CONCLUSIONS: When using the autogenous atrial tunnel, there are potential advantages; it is not associated with thromboembolism or endocarditis and has growth potential. However, in high-risk patients with increased pulmonary vascular resistance, impaired ventricular function and pre-operative atrial arrhythmias, it appears reasonable to use an extracardiac conduit.  (+info)

Continuous quality improvement decreases length of stay and adverse events: a case study in an interventional cardiology program. (6/3141)

A study was performed to assess the effectiveness of continuous quality improvement in achieving a better quality of care for patients undergoing coronary interventions. Increasing utilization of new coronary interventional devices has incurred a higher incidence of complications, prolonged hospital stay, and related costs. Using a clinical information system, we adopted continuous quality improvement to control the incidence of complications and postprocedural length of stay. Multiple regression analysis and a matched case-control study were performed to detect complications related to postprocedural length of stay and their causes among 342 patients. The results led to the modification of the postprocedural heparin anticoagulation protocol, which was followed by the introduction of a ticlopidine-based poststent anticoagulation regimen. Two sequential groups of patients (n = 261, n = 266) were selected to compare postprocedural length of stay and frequency of complications with those for the first group. Adjustments were made for patients and procedural characteristics through stratification and multiple regression methods. Blood transfusion was the most important predictor of prolonged hospital stay (partial R2 = 0.26, P < 0.01). A high level of postprocedural anticoagulation and intracoronary stent use were significantly associated with blood transfusion (P = 0.01, P = 0.02, respectively). The comparison among the three groups showed that heparin protocol change reduced only postprocedural length of stay (P < 0.001) for patients without stents, whereas the stent change in anticoagulation protocol significantly reduced both transfusion and hospital stay for patients with stents (P < 0.001, P < 0.05, respectively). Continuous quality improvement based on clinical information is promising to control both complications and hospital costs. Physician involvement is necessary throughout the process.  (+info)

Primary angioplasty for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction: experience at two community hospitals without cardiac surgery. (7/3141)

OBJECTIVES: We sought to establish the safety and efficacy of primary percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) at two community hospitals without on-site cardiac surgery. BACKGROUND: Though randomized studies indicate that primary angioplasty in AMI may result in superior outcomes compared with fibrinolytic therapy, the performance of primary angioplasty at hospitals without cardiac surgery is debated. METHODS: Three experienced operators performed 506 consecutive immediate coronary angiograms with primary angioplasty when appropriate in patients with suspected AMI at two community hospitals without cardiac surgery, following established rigorous program criteria. RESULTS: Clinical high risk predictors (Killip class 3 or 4, age > or = 75 years, anterior AMI, out-of-hospital ventricular fibrillation) and/or angiographic high risk predictors (left main or three-vessel disease or ejection fraction <45%) were present in 69.6%. Angioplasty was performed in 66.2%, with a median time from emergency department presentation to first angiogram of 94 min and a procedural success rate of 94.3%. The in-hospital mortality for the entire study population was 5.3%. Of those without initial cardiogenic shock, the in-hospital mortality was 3.0%. Of 300 patients who were discharged after primary angioplasty, only four died within the first 6 months, with 97.7% follow-up. No patient died or needed emergent aortocoronary bypass surgery because of new myocardial jeopardy caused by a complication of the cardiac catheterization or angioplasty procedure. CONCLUSIONS: Immediate coronary angiography with primary angioplasty when appropriate in patients with AMI can be performed safely and effectively in community hospitals without on-site cardiac surgery when rigorous program criteria are established.  (+info)

Transcatheter closure of muscular ventricular septal defects with the amplatzer ventricular septal defect occluder: initial clinical applications in children. (8/3141)

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to close muscular ventricular septal defects (MVSDs) in children, with a new device, the Amplatzer ventricular septal defect occluder (AVSDO). BACKGROUND: The design of previously used devices for transcatheter closure of MVSDs is not ideal for this purpose and their use has been limited by several drawbacks. METHODS: Six patients, aged 3 to 10 years, with MVSDs underwent transcatheter closure using the AVSDO. The device is a modified self-centering and repositionable Amplatzer device that consists of two low profile disks made of Nitinol wire mesh with a 7-mm connecting waist. The prosthesis size (connecting waist diameter) was chosen according to the measured balloon stretched VSD diameters. A 6-F or 7-F sheath was used for the delivery of the AVSDO. Fluoroscopy and transesophageal echocardiography were utilized for optimal guidance. RESULTS: The location of the defect was midmuscular in five patients and beneath the pulmonary valve in one. The balloon stretched MVSD diameter ranged from 6 to 11 mm. Device placement was successful in all patients, and complete occlusion occurred in all six patients (95% confidence interval 54.06% to 100%). Two patients developed transient complete left bundle branch block. No other complications were observed. CONCLUSIONS: This encouraging initial clinical success indicates that the AVSDO is a promising device for transcatheter closure of MVSDs in children. Further clinical trials and longer follow-up are needed before the widespread use of this technique can be recommended.  (+info)

Background: Mediastinal and pleural tubes are routinely employed following cardiac surgery to prevent accumulation of blood and fluids in the mediastinum or the pleural cavities. Recurrent pneumothorax is the most significant complication after chest tube discontinuation. We reviewed the occurrence of post pull pneumothorax after adult cardiac surgical procedures in our hospital. Methods: A retrospective study of patients undergoing various cardiac surgical procedures over a five year period was performed. The principle outcome was recurrent pneumothorax after chest tube discontinuation. Results: 8900 patients underwent cardiac surgical procedures in the five- year study period. There were 6236 males and 2542 women with a mean age of 66,5 years. One hundred and twenty-two patients suffered postoperative pneumothorax for an overall incidence of 1,4%. Twenty-one of 122 patients developed a pneumothorax of variable size following chest tube removal for an overall incidence of 0,23%. Sixteen ...

BACKGROUND: This study aimed to identify the impact of diabetes mellitus and related comorbidities on long-term survival of heart failure patients who had undergone surgical ventricular restoration. Surgical ventricular restoration is an optional therapeutic strategy for patients with ischemic dilated cardiomyopathy. Reported prognostic predictors for late morbidity and mortality are predominantly related to cardiac conditions, whereas the prognostic impact of comorbidities still needs to be defined.. METHODS: A total of 329 patients (234 nondiabetic and 95 diabetic) who survived the surgical ventricular restoration operation were admitted to this study. Cardiac mortality follow-up data were collected. Actuarial survival curves were calculated for the two groups; differences between groups and the impact of other comorbidities were established using a log-rank test and a Cox regression analysis.. RESULTS: The mean follow-up time was 44 months. Diabetic patients had a significantly worse survival ...

Background: Postoperative stroke occurs in up to 5% of cardiac surgery patients, contributing significantly to mortality and morbidity. Patient characteristics as well as intraoperative factors have been associated with a higher risk of stroke. We hypothesized that poor systemic blood oxygenation in the perioperative period is associated with increased risk of stroke following cardiac surgery.. Methods: This was a case-control study of 311 adult patients who underwent cardiac surgical procedures at a single center from 2003-6. Patients having a postoperative stroke were matched 1:2 with controls. Minimum and average pO2 values, as measured from arterial blood gas values during and up to 24 hours after the start of surgery, were recorded and evaluated as continuous and categorical (in quartiles) predictors. Conditional logistic regression models adjusted for hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, cardiopulmonary bypass time, and prior stroke were used to evaluate associations between minimum and ...
Background: The vascular effects of high density lipoprotein (HDL) may be highly heterogeneous. Normal HDL protects vascular function. Vascular function plays an important role in maintaining the circulation stable post-cardiac surgery. The vascular effects of HDL in valvular heart disease (VHD) and cardiac surgery remain unknown. The present study is to determine the vascular effects of HDL from VHD and cardiac surgery.. Methods: HDL was isolated from healthy subjects and patients with VHD and during cardiac surgery. HDL inflammation index was measured by cell free assay. Effects of HDL on vasodilation, protein interaction, generation of nitric oxide (NO) and superoxide anion (O2·-) were determined.. Results: HDL inflammation index significantly increased in VHD patients and post-cardiac surgery. HDL from VHD patients and post-cardiac surgery significantly impaired endothelium-dependent vasodilation, inhibited both Akt and endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) phosphorylation, eNOS ...
Dr. Carmelo Otero, Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgeon, performed the first United States clinical case at Christus Santa Rosa Hospital in San Antonio, Texas. The 53 year old, female patient presented with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (A-Fib), mitral and tricuspid valve and coronary artery disease. The AtriLaze surgical ablation procedure was performed as a concomitant procedure with mitral valve replacement and tricuspid valve repair. Use of the AtriLaze system added a minimal amount of time to the overall surgical procedure.. The AtriLaze system performed well, allowing me to easily and precisely replicate Maze lesions, stated Dr. Otero. The laser technology provides me the capability to safely and quickly create an array of cardiac lesions that enabled todays successful clinical case. The AtriLaze system facilitates a simple, reproducible technique that I believe will be very effective in concomitant cardiac surgical procedures and potentially lends itself to minimally invasive and ...

Genes, which are carried on chromosomes, are the basic units of heredity. They produce proteins that directly or indirectly carry out all life functions. When genes are absent or defective, proteins are unable to carry out their normal functions, resulting in genetic disorders. In gene therapy, a functioning gene replaces an absent or faulty gene, so that the body can make the correct protein and consequently eliminate the root cause of a disease.. Using molecular cardiac surgery, Dr. Bridges group was the first in the world to convincingly demonstrate that marker genes could be efficiently inserted into the majority of heart muscle cells in large animals like dogs and sheep. What makes this approach so unique is that Dr. Bridges group uses a novel, patent-pending cardiac surgical procedure and specially designed hardware as a platform for the most efficient delivery of genes to heart muscle cells ever achieved in large animals. Prior to Dr. Bridges work, research in other laboratories had not ...
Introduction: Acute kidney injury (AKI) after cardiac surgery increases length of hospital stay and in-hospital mortality. A significant number of patients undergoing cardiac surgical procedures require perioperative intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) support. Use of an IABP has been linked to an increased incidence of perioperative renal dysfunction and death. This might be due to dislodgement of atherosclerotic material in the descending thoracic aorta (DTA). Therefore, we retrospectively studied the correlation between DTA atheroma, AKI and in-hospital mortality. Methods: A total of 454 patients were retrospectively matched to one of four groups: -IABP/-DTA atheroma, +IABP/-DTA atheroma, -IABP/+DTA atheroma, +IABP/+DTA atheroma. Patients were then matched according to presence/absence of DTA atheroma, presence/absence of IABP, performed surgical procedure, age, gender and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). DTA atheroma was assessed through standard transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) ...

A catheter system for use in minimally invasive cardiac surgical procedures. The catheter system diminishes certain trauma generally associated with invasive cardiac procedures while providing aortic occlusion, extracorporeal circulation, cardiac arrest, and cardiac venting. The catheter system provides a minimally invasive and simplified system that performs total cardiopulmonary bypass with ease of insertion, improved whole body profusion, and shortened recovery periods. The catheters are refined, with reduced diameters and specialized functions for maximum control of each aspect of cardiopulmonary bypass.

Surgical procedures account for the transfusion of almost 15 million units of packed red blood cells (RBCs) every year in the United States. There has been intense interest in blood conservation and minimizing blood transfusion over the past several years, but the number of annual transfusions is increasing, says Victor A. Ferraris, MD, PhD. At the same time, the blood donor pool has stabilized or slightly decreased. Perioperative bleeding that requires RBC transfusion is especially common during cardiac operations, which consume as much as 10% to 15% of the nations blood supply. Evidence suggests that this figure is rising, largely because of the increasing complexity of cardiac surgical procedures.. An important part of blood resource management is recognizing patients risk of bleeding and subsequent blood transfusion.. In the March 2011 Annals of Thoracic Surgery, the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and the Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists published an update to their 2007 ...
The research, conducted at the University of Michigans C.S. Mott Childrens Hospital and Boston Childrens Hospital, was published Online First in the New England Journal of Medicine Sept. 7..

Patients either received standard cardiac intensive care or ...
As the coordinator of St. Lukes Valve Center Clinic, Paige works with patients who have problems with the aortic or mitral valves of the heart. Of the 350-400 cardiac surgical procedures performed at St. Lukes each year, about half involve repair or replacement of a heart valve.. Some patients may be candidates for a less invasive procedure that requires a smaller incision, less time in the hospital, and shorter recovery time. This includes the latest in valve replacement technology- transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). St. Lukes is the leader in Idaho with the most experienced team and 62 successful TAVR procedures. The program is also a nation-wide leader in reduced length of stay at an average of 3.7 days, well under the national average of six days.. The Valve Center Clinic continues to add advanced procedures and products that allow us to treat an even broader patient population, including those would be otherwise too sick or frail for surgery. Regardless of the type of ...

Outcomes following paediatric cardiac surgery have long been the subject of clinical, regulatory, media and public scrutiny. There are several reasons for this. The work is among the most technically challenging, resource intensive and emotionally charged clinical activity undertaken. In the UK, past events, public inquiries and intentions to reduce the number of centres performing this surgery provide a rich source of back-stories and a level of public awareness that make paediatric cardiac surgery ripe for political comment and productive journalism.. In this context, collection and open reporting of outcome data at a national level is as fraught with difficulties as it is inescapable. Chief among these is a reasonable expectation from the profession that audit will be fair to clinical teams. This translates to a view that, in the reporting of outcomes, account should be taken of the hugely diverse set of diagnoses and comorbid conditions that patients present with, the wide range of ...
The incidence of chronic pain following cardiac surgery can be reduced in patients when the drug pregabalin is used before surgery and for 14 days post-surgery, according to a study presented at the ANESTHESIOLOGY™ 2013 annual meeting. The study also found that patients at risk of developing long-term post-operative persistent pain can be predicted by conducting pain sensitivity tests at the time of surgery.

N2 - Objective: In patients undergoing cardiac surgery, intraoperative myocardial acidosis, which quantifies regional myocardial ischemia, has been shown to increase the risk of adverse postoperative outcomes. In this study, we sought to determine the course of intraoperative myocardial acidosis and its impact on postoperative survival in patients with diabetes mellitus undergoing cardiac surgery. Methods: Intraoperative myocardial tissue pH37C was continuously measured in the anterior and posterior left ventricular walls in 264 patients undergoing cardiac surgery; 74 (28.0%) of the patients had diabetes (insulin-dependent diabetes: ...
For patients undergoing cardiac surgery, persistent postoperative pain decreases over time and is 9.5% at 24 months after surgery.
In the context of a large increase in the number of procedures submitted annually for audit, the raw 30-day mortality rate for paediatric cardiac surgical episodes in the UK fell from 4.3% in 2000 to 2.6% in 2009/2010, with a downward trend over this period. The drop in 30-day mortality was seen across the lower three bands of risk, which accounted for 92.9% of surgical episodes, but not in the highest risk band. Interestingly, the UK paediatric cardiac surgery case mix has become more rather than less complex over a decade of improving outcomes as reflected by the increased prevalence of functionally univentricular hearts, high-risk diagnoses and low weight at operation (,2.5 kg). This trend suggests that rather than turning away higher risk patients during an era when outcomes have been monitored more closely, conversely, a greater proportion of more complex patients were taken on in later years.. There was evidence that definitive surgical repairs are being performed earlier in life than was ...

Jaundice following cardiac surgery, frequently referred to as “post-pump jaundice,†has been reported since the 1960’s with an incidence of between 3 to 40%. The incidence of jaundice following mitral valve replacement has been reported to be as high as 55%. Jaundice following cardiac surgery has been associated with prolonged mechanical ventilation, prolonged intensive care unit (ICU) stay, and a higher mortality. The causes of jaundice following cardiac surgery include acute cholecystitis, acute pancreatitis, shocked liver, and septic shock. However, a subset of patients develop hepatic dysfunction without an obvious cause. Hepatic dysfunction in these patients is characterized by hyperbilirubinemia with a mild elevation in hepatic transaminases and no evidence of biliary obstruction on imaging. This entity has been referred to as the “cholestatic post-cardiac surgery syndrome†.. ...

Background: Prophylactic antibiotic therapy is given routinely in the peri-operative period to prevent surgical site infection. However, in pediatric cardiac surgery, an optimal schedule has not been defined. Pediatric recommendations follow the guidelines for adults, which might be improper because of the inherent challenges in pediatric research and the heterogeneity of the population. Implementation of an effective prophylaxis protocol is needed for children undergoing cardiac surgery, especially in view of worldwide antibiotic overuse and the development of drug resistance. In this review, we analyze the current knowledge supported by up-to-date publications about antibiotic prophylaxis in pediatric cardiac surgery.. Methods: The PubMed® database was searched for full-text journal articles describing peri-operative antibiotic prophylaxis in pediatric cardiac surgery published since 2000. Antibiotics used for standard prophylaxis with dosing schema, time of the first dose, additional dosage ...

Cardiac catheterization has opened an innovative treatment field for cardiac disease; this treatment is becoming the most popular approach for pediatric congenital heart disease (CHD) and has led to a significant growth in the number of children with cardiac catheterization. Unfortunately, based on evidence, it has been demonstrated that the majority of children with CHD are at an increased risk of
Medical devices used during open heart surgery at the New Brunswick Heart Centre in Saint John has been linked to a rare bacterial infection - and patients who had the surgery between November 2012 and November of last year are being warned of a potential, though very low, infection risk.. That notification comes by way of Horizon Health which describes the infection risk for the patients as being less than one in a thousand, and Dr. Jean-Francois Legare, the clinical head of cardiac surgery at the New Brunswick Heart Centre, tells Acadia Broadcasting it is probably closer to one in five thousand.. Dr. Legare says that theyre now in the process of contacting 2800 patients.. So maybe there is one patient out of all the ones weve contacted that could be affected, so it is a very small number, but again were trying to make sure that were not missing something that we could treat or could help someone.. The device is called a Sorin 3T Heater Cooler and is used to heat and cool blood during ...

Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery, also known as MICS CABG (Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery/Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting) or The McGinn Technique is heart surgery performed through several small incisions instead of the traditional open-heart surgery that requires a median sternotomy approach. MICS CABG is a beating-heart multi-vessel procedure performed under direct vision through an anterolateral mini-thoracotomy. Advantages of Minimally Invasive Heart Surgery are less blood loss, reduced post-operative discomfort, faster healing times and lowered risk of infections, as well as eliminating the possibility for deep sternal wound infection or sternal non-union. This procedure makes heart surgery possible for patients who were previously considered too high risk for traditional surgery due to age or medical history. Patients referred for this procedure may have Coronary Artery Disease (CAD); aortic, mitral or tricuspid valve diseases; or previous unsuccessful stenting. MICS CABG is ...

What is minimally invasive cardiac surgery?. Most cardiac operations today are performed through a sternotomy, which involves splitting the entire breastbone. Minimally invasive cardiac surgery encompasses a variety of operations performed through incisions that are substantially smaller and less traumatic than the standard sternotomy. Minimally invasive incisions measure about 3 to 4 inches compared to 8 to 10 sternotomy incisions. Specialized handheld and robotic instruments are used to project the dexterity of the surgeons hands through these small incisions in performing the operations. ...

Background: Diabetes mellitus involves 8.7% of the adult community in India, and its preponderance is rising. Diabetes is an independent risk factor for complications after open cardiac surgery. Poor glycaemic control, measured by glycosylated haemoglobin A1C (HbA1c), is associated with high incidence of micro and macroangiopathy. HbA1c reflects the patients prevailing sugar control over the previous 120-150 days. Perioperative cardiac surgical risk scoring systems like Euro Score and STS scoring systems do not include HbA1c level as risk factor. We intended to study the correlation of preoperative HbA1c level and outcome after cardiac surgery.. Methodology: A total of 350 patients who had undergone elective cardiac surgery were included. All patients were stratified into two groups, Group 1 with HbA1c level , 7%, Group 2 ,7%. Intraoperative and postoperative adverse events were documented retrospectively. The two groups of patients were compared with regard to their demographic data, operation ...

BOSTON - Older patients undergoing cardiac surgery often experience changes in cognitive function, such as memory problems or an inability to focus, in the days immediately following their operations. While these changes are usually temporary, for unknown reasons, a significant number of cardiac patients will encounter long-term cognitive problems, lasting as long as a year after their surgeries.. Now, new research published in the July 5 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), establishes a link between postoperative delirium and prolonged loss of cognitive function in cardiac surgery patients. Led by investigators at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), the Aging Brain Center at Hebrew SeniorLife, and the University of Massachusetts Medical School, the findings suggest that interventions to prevent delirium in advance of surgery could help cardiac patients avoid long-term cognitive consequences.. A state of confusion that can develop following illness, infection or ...

Since fibrinogen plays a key role in hemostasis and it is rapidly depleted during cardiac surgery, many cardiac surgeons give fibrinogen to control bleeding during surgery for high-risk patients. The efficacy of this treatment, however, had not been previously confirmed in large, randomized clinical trials. A recent study in the Netherlands randomized 120 high-risk cardiac surgery patients with intraoperative bleeding to receive either fibrinogen concentrate or a placebo during elective surgery. Over 70% of the surgeries were either coronary artery bypass grafts or valve repair or replacements, and the surgeries on average lasted more than three hours. Intraoperative blood loss was similar in both groups-the median blood loss in the patients that received fibrinogen concentrate was 50 mL (IQR 29-100 mL) while the group receiving the placebo lost a median of 70 mL of blood (IQR 33-145 mL; p=0.19). Furthermore, additional adverse events occurred in the patients who received fibrinogen up to 30 ...

Its been a challenge to develop a surgical adhesive that sticks to wet surfaces and isnt toxic. But it turns out a certain kind of slug is very good at secreting a sticky mucus that glues fast, apparently as a defense mechanism.. That provided the inspiration for a hydrogel super adhesive that could supplant surgical sutures, at least for some operations, and help medical devices stay in place. Researchers at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvards School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), led by David Mooney, PhD, report that the adhesive bound strongly to a variety of animal tissues, including skin, cartilage, artery, liver and heart.. Nikolay Vasilyev, MD, a coauthor on the paper, is interested in the adhesives potential for young patients with congenital heart disease.

BACKGROUND: Advances in cardiac operations over the last few decades, including corrective operations in early life, have dramatically increased the survival of children with congenital heart disease. However, postoperative care has been associated with neurologic complications, with seizures being the most common manifestation. The primary objective of this study is to describe the outcomes in pediatric patients who received an antiepileptic drug (AED) post-cardiac surgery. METHOD: A retrospective cohort study was performed in all patients less than 18 years of age who received an AED in the cardiovascular intensive care unit at Texas Childrens Hospital from June 2002 until June 2012 ...
The principal finding of this study is that 5-m gait speed is an incremental predictor of mortality and major morbidity in elderly patients undergoing cardiac surgery, associated with a 2- to 3-fold increase in risk. This simple, rapid, and inexpensive test effectively stratifies patients beyond traditional estimates of risk, which tend to be inaccurate in the elderly. Addition of gait speed to existing cardiac surgery risk models resulted in improved model performance, translating into more accurate prediction of who will experience a major adverse post-operative event and who will need to be discharged to a health care facility for ongoing medical care or rehabilitation.. There are no previous studies specifically focusing on the use of gait speed as a predictor of post-operative mortality and morbidity in elderly cardiac surgery patients. Two studies incorporated disabilities in activities of daily living as a predictor of outcomes after cardiac surgery (26,27). Although there is no ...

The perioperative use of high inspired oxygen fraction (FIO2) for preventing surgical site infections (SSIs) has demonstrated a reduction in their incidence in some types of surgery however there exist some discrepancies in this respect. The aim of this study was to analyze the relationship between PaO2 values and SSIs in cardiac patients. We designed a prospective study in which 1,024 patients undergoing cardiac surgery were analyzed. SSIs were observed in 5.3% of patients. There was not significant difference in mortality at 30 days between patients with and without SSIs. In the uni and multivariate analysis no differences in function of the inspired oxygen fraction administrated were observed. We observed that the PaO2 in adult cardiac surgery patients was not related to SSI rate.
