Sickle cell anemia is a haematological disorder characterized by multiple vaso-occlusive complications, resulting in a reduced life expectancy. These patients are exposed to several triggering factors for sickle cell crises when they are submitted to cardiovascular surgeries with extracorporeal circulation. Therefore, meticulous care and perioperative management are required. This paper reports a successful case of combined cardiovascular surgery - aortic valve replacement and ascending aortic aneurysmectomy - with no serious post-operative complications. In this report, we emphasize the peculiarities of perioperative care in patients with sickle cell anemia.

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) has become the cornerstone for aortic valve intervention since the first implantation in 2002. Recent advances with novel devices and introduction into lo...
Quadricuspid aortic valves are rare congenital malformations. Although aortic valve replacement is the first-choice treatment in most cases, aortic valve repair using a tricuspidization procedure has ...
The objective of this study was to determine whether valve-in-valve transcatheter aortic valve implantation (VIV-TAVI) is associated with better survival than redo surgical aortic valve replacement...
This study aimed to assess the predictors of patient-prosthesis mismatch (PPM) after surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) or transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) using preoperative comput...
This study sought to evaluate the trends in isolated surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) procedures across hospitals with different transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) volumes among Med...
This study sought to evaluate changes in ascending aorta size after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) in patients with bicuspid aortic valve (BiAV) compared with patients with ...
Aortic valve disease is a progressive illness that varies from minor valve thickening lacking obstruction of blood stream to severe calcification and alteration of the valve leading to wea...
The aim of the present study is to assess in a "real life" caselist the outcome of three different surgical approches for isolated aortic valve surgery in terms of surgery times, morbidity...
This study evaluates the effectiveness and safety of surgical aortic valve replacement and transcatheter aortic valve replacement in aortic Stenosis.
To evaluate the safety and performance of the HLT System in patients with severe aortic stenosis who present at high risk for aortic valve replacement surgery.
Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.
The downward displacement of the cuspal or pointed end of the trileaflet AORTIC VALVE causing misalignment of the cusps. Severe valve distortion can cause leakage and allow the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to aortic regurgitation.
Pathological condition characterized by the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to regurgitation. It is caused by diseases of the AORTIC VALVE or its surrounding tissue (aortic root).
A type of constriction that is caused by the presence of a fibrous ring (discrete type) below the AORTIC VALVE, anywhere between the aortic valve and the MITRAL VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
A pathological constriction that can occur above (supravalvular stenosis), below (subvalvular stenosis), or at the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
