Diabetes as an outcome predictor after heart transplantation☆

We aimed to compare post-transplantation morbidity and survival among heart transplant recipients with and without diabetes mellitus. A retrospective review of 141 adult patients submitted to heart transplantation from November 2003 to June 2009 (with a minimum follow-up of one year) was undertaken. The patients were divided into two groups: those with (29%) and those without (71...

Long-term follow-up of elderly patients subjected to aortic valve replacement with mechanical prostheses☆

We propose to analyse the long-term follow-up in patients older than 65 years of age who received a mechanical valve in the aortic position, using death and prosthetic-related complications as endpoints. From April 1988 to December 1995, 144 consecutive patients 65–75 years of age (mean 67.7±2.5) were enrolled. Total duration of follow-up was 1663 patient-years (median 13.0 years...

Cardiac allograft systolic function. Is the aetiology (ischaemic or idiopathic) a determinant of ventricular function in the heart transplant patient?☆

The natural history of the LV systolic function (LV-SF) and functional capacity of survivors of heart transplantation (Htx) has not been defined. Some investigators suggest that SF may be different in recipients with different pre-transplant aetiologies: ischaemic or dilated, idiopathic disease. Routine transthoracic echocardiograms (TTE) were performed during a 1-year follow-up...

Mortality risk prediction in coronary surgery: a locally developed model outperforms external risk models☆

This study aimed at assessing the performance of three external risk-adjusted models – logistic EuroSCORE, Parsonnet score and Ontario Province Risk (OPR) score – in predicting in-hospital mortality in patients submitted to coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) and to develop a local risk-score model. Data on 4567 patients who underwent isolated CABG (1992–2001) were extracted from...

Repair in traumatic ascending aortic rupture and valve insufficiency

An 18-year-old patient who had chronic traumatic ascending aortic lesion and valve insufficiency, with severe LV dysfunction, was treated by repair of the aortic wall without prosthesis and of the aortic valve by a gluteraldehyde-treated autologous pericardial patch. The patient had an uneventful recovery and minimal residual aortic regurgitation at one-month echocardiographic...
