A Synthetic Cardiocel Tube for Minimally Invasive Superior Vena Cava Bypass.

Summary of "A Synthetic Cardiocel Tube for Minimally Invasive Superior Vena Cava Bypass."

Superior vena cava (SVC) occlusion is a condition in which the venous flow of blood to the right atrium is obstructed, requiring a recanalization or bypass procedure. These procedures are traditionally performed via an endovascular repair surgery or a sternotomy, typically with a covered stent or spiral vein graft. However, these conduits have several limitations. We describe a minimally invasive right thoracotomy approach in which we utilized a synthetic tube to bypass an occluded SVC in a 52-year-old woman.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An operation for the continuous emptying of ascitic fluid into the venous system. Fluid removal is based on intraperitoneal and intrathoracic superior vena cava pressure differentials and is performed via a pressure-sensitive one-way valve connected to a tube traversing the subcutaneous tissue of the chest wall to the neck where it enters the internal jugular vein and terminates in the superior vena cava. It is used in the treatment of intractable ascites.

A condition that occurs when the obstruction of the thin-walled SUPERIOR VENA CAVA interrupts blood flow from the head, upper extremities, and thorax to the RIGHT ATRIUM. Obstruction can be caused by NEOPLASMS; THROMBOSIS; ANEURYSM; or external compression. The syndrome is characterized by swelling and/or CYANOSIS of the face, neck, and upper arms.

A vein which arises from the right ascending lumbar vein or the vena cava, enters the thorax through the aortic orifice in the diaphragm, and terminates in the superior vena cava.

The small mass of modified cardiac muscle fibers located at the junction of the superior vena cava (VENA CAVA, SUPERIOR) and right atrium. Contraction impulses probably start in this node, spread over the atrium (HEART ATRIUM) and are then transmitted by the atrioventricular bundle (BUNDLE OF HIS) to the ventricle (HEART VENTRICLE).

Mechanical devices inserted in the inferior vena cava that prevent the migration of blood clots from deep venous thrombosis of the leg.
