Advanced mechanical circulatory support for post-cardiotomy cardiogenic shock: a 20-year outcome analysis in a non-transplant unit

Background Post-cardiotomy cardiogenic shock (PCCS) has an incidence of 2–6 % after routine adult cardiac surgery. 0.5–1.5 % are refractory to inotropic and intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) support. Advanced mechanical circulatory support (AMCS) can be used to salvage carefully selected number of such patients. High costs and major complication rates have lead to centralization and ...

How to make an aortic root replacement simulator at home

There is a paucity of low-fidelity and cost-efficient simulators for training cardiac surgeons in the aspects of aortic root/valve replacement. In this study we addressed this training challenge by creating a low-fidelity, low-cost but, at the same time, anatomically realistic aortic root replacement simulator for training purposes. We used readily available, low cost materials ...

Middle lobe syndrome associated with major haemoptysis

A 60-year-old Indian woman who was suffering from recurrent pneumonia presented with major haemoptysis and a right-sided pleuritic chest pain. Initially the patient required resuscitation to optimise her haemodynamic parameters while oxygenation remained satisfactory. An urgent computed tomography pulmonary angiogram revealed right middle lobe syndrome which constitutes chronic ...

Is there any role for resuscitative emergency department thoracotomy in blunt trauma?

A best evidence topic in cardiothoracic surgery was written according to a structured protocol. The question addressed was whether there is any role for resuscitative emergency department thoracotomy in severe blunt trauma. Emergency thoracotomy is an accepted intervention for patients with penetrating cardiothoracic trauma. However, its role in blunt trauma has been challenged and ...

Is it worth placing ventricular pacing wires in all patients post-coronary artery bypass grafting?

A best evidence topic in cardiac surgery was written according to a structured protocol. The question addressed was whether ventricular pacing wires should be placed routinely in all patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) regardless of immediate post-cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) rhythm status. Using the reported search, 142 papers were found, from which 10 ...

Is a tricuspid annuloplasty ring significantly better than a De Vega's annuloplasty stitch when repairing severe tricuspid regurgitation?

A best evidence topic in cardiac surgery was written according to a structured protocol. The question addressed was whether tricuspid valve (TV) repair with an annuloplasty ring leads to an improved outcome over a conventional suture annuloplasty for patients with severe tricuspid incompetence. Altogether, 306 papers were found using the reported search, of which 14 presented the ...
