Ischemic and hemorrhagic brain injury during venoarterial-extracorporeal membrane oxygenation

BackgroundStructural neurological complications (ischemic stroke and intracranial bleeding) and their risk factors in patients receiving venoarterial-extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) are poorly described. Our objective was to describe frequencies, outcomes and risk factors for neurological complications (ischemic stroke and intracranial bleeding) in patients...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation for pheochromocytoma-induced cardiogenic shock

Background Pheochromocytoma, a rare catecholamine-producing tumor, might provoke stress-induced Takotsubo-like cardiomyopathy and severe cardiogenic shock. Because venoarterial-extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) rescue of pheochromocytoma-induced refractory cardiogenic shock has rarely been reported, we reviewed our ICU patients’ presentations and outcomes. Methods All...

Cardiopulmonary bypass model in the rat: a new minimal invasive model with a low flow volume†

Numerous cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) models in the rat have already been described, but these models often have an important mortality and differ a lot from human clinical conditions thus making them hardly usable. The CPB model in the rat we describe allows a femoro-femoral support CPB with a low priming volume, minimal surgical approach and excellent peroperative survival...

Is there a place for video-associated thoracoscopy for dissecting intramural haematoma of the oesophagus?

Spontaneous haematoma of the oesophagus is a rare cause of chest pain. We report the case of a 63-year-old female in whom spontaneous rupture of the oesophagus was suspected, but who was subsequently, found to have a dissecting intramural haematoma of the oesophagus. She successfully underwent mediastinal and thoracic drainage by right video-assisted thoracoscopy. Although...

Aortic bullet embolization revealed by peripheral ischemia after a thoracic gunshot wound

We present the case of a 21-year-old male who came to the emergency ward for a thorax bullet wound. At our first check-up, the computed tomography (CT)-scan showed a pulmonary contusion, a hemothorax and a suspicious image of a thoracic aortic wound. The patient was stable, but soon after admission a distal ischemic syndrome appeared which revealed the emboli of the projectile...

Intentional and successful use of a marginal donor heart with surgically-corrected interventricular communication

We describe a case of heart transplantation (HTX) performed using a heart from a 20-year-old donor who underwent surgical closure of a ventricular septal defect during childhood. Our 26-year-old patient was successfully discharged to a rehabilitation centre on day 20 post-transplantation. To our knowledge, this is the first report of an HTX performed with a ‘redo’ donor heart...

Acute aortic syndrome: a ‘last glance’ before incision

Acute aortic syndrome (AAS) (aortic dissection, intramural aortic haematoma, or penetrating atherosclerotic ulcer) is a surgical emergency. Computed tomography (CT) is the reference technique for the diagnosis of this critical situation. However, a few reports of false-positive images leading to unnecessary interventions have been published. It is important to recognize and...

The French airbridge for circulatory support in the Carribean†

OBJECTIVES We report the assessment and the activities for the first year of our airborne circulatory support mobile unit (CSMU) in the French Caribbean.

The hemiclamshell approach in thoracic surgery: indications and associated morbidity in 50 patients☆

This retrospective study was carried out to evaluate the indications for and outcomes of the hemiclamshell (HCS) approach (longitudinal partial sternotomy with antero-lateral thoracotomy) in patients undergoing mass resection in thoracic surgery. All patients (50) who underwent a HCS procedure in our department, between July 1996 and July 2005, were studied retrospectively...
