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: 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) ...

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.. "Post-operative complications for infants and young children who have cardiac surgery remains common, so we want to identify risk factors that we can modify and interventions to help speed their recovery," says Michael G. Gaies, M.D., M.P.H., a physician in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at C.S. Mott, and senior author of the study.. "Tight glycemic control using insulin was shown, in some studies, to improve outcomes in adult cardiac surgery patients, but we didnt know whether children would experience similar benefits.". The researchers studied 980 children from newborn to three years old who were undergoing surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass, representing the largest clinical trial ever performed in pediatric cardiac surgical patients. 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.

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†.. ...

The first two days after surgery were the worst, although each day of recovery had potential for a few surprises. Immediately following open heart surgery your vital signs will be checked every hour on the hour around the clock for the first two to three days and nights. In addition to monitoring your vitals signs, the first week of recovery will focus on pain management, breathing exercises, sitting in a chair, walking down hallways, nourishment, limited leg and arm exercises, and not much else. My cardiologist and my surgeon said my recovery was ahead of schedule according to the time frame. It was several days after surgery before I could express cognitive thoughts on paper due to pain medication, repeatedly drifting to sleep, discomfort, and an occasional sense of helplessness. I had surgery on a Monday morning and was released to come home late Friday afternoon. ...
