Bentall procedures are traditionally performed through a median sternotomy. The right mini-thoracotomy approach is increasingly used in aortic valve replacement. This approach has been shown to have decreased blood loss and hospital length of stay compared with sternotomy. A right mini-thoracotomy approach may also be beneficial in selected patients requiring aortic root surgery. We present our initial clinical experience of patients who have undergone a right mini-thoracotomy Bentall.
Aortic aneurysms are a common vascular disease in Western populations that can involve virtually any portion of the aorta. Abdominal aortic aneurysms are much more common than thoracic aortic aneurysms and combined they account for >25 000 deaths in the United States annually. Although thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms share some common characteristics, including the gross anatomic appearance, alterations in extracellular matrix, and loss of smooth muscle cells, they are distinct diseases. In recent...
Dissections or ruptures of aortic aneurysms remain a leading cause of death in the developed world, with the majority of deaths being preventable if individuals at risk are identified and properly managed. Genetic variants predispose individuals to these aortic diseases. In the case of thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissections (thoracic aortic disease), genetic data can be used to identify some at-risk individuals and dictate management of the associated vascular disease. For abdominal aortic aneurysms, gene...
Surgical technique process innovations are expected to generally incur no additional cost but gain better quality. Whether a mini-laparotomy surgery (MLS) in the treatment of colorectal cancer (CRC) is more cost effective than conventional open surgery had not been well examined. The objective of this study was to apply cost-effectiveness approaches to investigate the cost effectiveness of adopting MLS compared with open surgery 1 year following resection in CRC patients.
Fenestrated mini-clips were developed as an effective tool for dog-ear-shaped remnants of aneurysms. However, the special property of these clips may have other applications. Here, we report two cases of ruptured small aneurysm and suggest the alternative utility of a single application of a fenestrated mini-clip.
Perioperative stroke is a major complication after debranching thoracic endovascular aortic repair (TEVAR), with a reported incidence of 7.0% to 26.9%. Subsequent functional recovery is difficult in most cases. This study was performed to evaluate the efficacy of mini-cardiopulmonary bypass (mini-CPB) support in debranching TEVAR to prevent perioperative stroke. PATIENTS AND METHODS": From December 2010 to July 2017, 32 patients with a shaggy aorta or intimal irregularity in the aortic arch on preoperative ...
The aim of our study was to assess the prevalence of concomitant arterial abnormalities (true aneurysms of iliac, common femoral, renal, visceral arteries and stenoses of iliac and renal arteries) in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm, and to evaluate whether the type of the aneurysm (suprarenal versus solely infrarenal) is associated with this prevalence.
In a population-based cohort of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (rAAAs), our aim was to investigate clinical, morphological and biomechanical features in patients with small rAAAs.
To investigate the impact of proximal aortic diameter on outcome after endovascular repair (EVAR) of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms.
Abdominal aortic aneurysms are conventionally treated by open repair surgery. While endovascular aortic repair improves survival in high-risk patients, younger patients (40-65 years) potentially at lower risk with asymptomatic abdominal aortic aneurysms undergoing endovascular aortic repair usually have poorer post-operative outcomes and require longer term follow-up. In this study, clinical data on younger patients were analyzed to investigate whether endovascular aortic repair leads to poorer short- and l...
Fenestrated endovascular aortic repair (FEVAR) of complex aneurysm can require the coverage of polar renal artery. The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of the procedure on post-operative outcomes in patients with juxta-renal or thoraco-abdominal aortic aneurysms.
The main objective of this study was to identify the changes that have occurred in the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) in France over a period of 10 years.
full sternotomy (FS) is the gold standard approach to perform surgical aortic valve replacement (AVR). However, potential advantages of a less traumatic approach fomented the development of so-called minimally invasive procedures, which include upper mini-sternotomy (MS).
Anemia is associated with increased cardiac adverse events during the early postoperative period because of high physiologic stress and increased cardiac demand. The aim of this study was to assess the surgical outcomes and prognostic implications of anemia in patients undergoing repair of intact abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs).
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of percutaneous mini-nephrolithotomy (mini-PCNL) in children with complex staghorn stones.
To demonstrate the use of the Moses technology for holmium laser lithotripsy in conjunction with mini-PCNL to treat a lower pole stone. The Moses technology is a pulse modulation method that can reduce stone retropulsion, which may have advantages when used during mini-PCNL.
Mini-generators based on the locomotion of small objects have aroused widespread attention because of the potential application in powering small-scale electronic devices. Although improvement has been made in the development of mini-generators, the mini-generators still face some key challenges such as low power output and energy conversion efficiency, which limit the potential application of mini-generators. Herein, through integrating a superhydrophobic surface, chemical reaction and solenoid coil/magnet...
This paper presents a case study of a patient that underwent surgery for a ruptured abdominal aneurysm. The postoperative course was complicated by resistant hypertension and tachycardia. A suprarenal mass was detected in the computed tomography scan with radiological suspicion of pheochromocytoma. Few cases of pheochromocytoma coexisting with aneurysms have been reported. Management of cardiovascular stability is crucial in such cases. Despite the lack of evidence, pheochromocytomas might have a role in th...
To evaluate mini-sling long-term results and correlate them to failure predictors. Many studies show comparable results among different single-incision slings developed as an attempt to reduce complications while keeping good results, but there is a lack of evidence about mini-slings outcomes in the long term.
There is a paucity of data guiding preoperative counselling on the need for discharge to a facility or non-home discharge (NHD) following elective endovascular repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms (EVAR). This study seeks to determine the preoperative predictors of NHD following EVAR in baseline home-dwelling patients and to determine whether NHD is associated with major post-discharge complications and readmission.
We recently synthesized ZnO nanomaterials (denoted as ZnO nanorods [NRs] and Mini-NRs) and suggested that their cytotoxicity could be related with the activation of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress apoptosis. However, in a complex biological microenvironment, the ER stress-apoptosis pathway could also be modulated by biological molecules, such as free fatty acids, leading to unpredicted biological effects. In this study, we investigated the combined toxicity of ZnO NRs/Mini-NRs and palmitate (PA) to THP-1 ...
Patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) often have low exercise tolerance due to comorbidities and advance age. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) is predictive of post-operative morbidity and mortality in patients with AAA. We aimed to assess the intra- and inter-rater reliability of both treadmill and cycle ergometer based CPET variables.
Concomitant malignant disease and abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) represent a challenging issue in terms of treatment priority, timing and perspectives. This narrative review provides an overview of the available literature managing AAA and concomitant malignant disease.
Current management of aortic aneurysms relies exclusively on prophylactic operative repair of larger aneurysms. Great potential exists for successful medical therapy that halts or reduces aneurysm progression and hence alleviates or postpones the need for surgical repair. Preclinical studies in the context of abdominal aortic aneurysm identified hundreds of candidate strategies for stabilization, and data from preoperative clinical intervention studies show that interventions in the pathways of the activate...
Individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often meet criteria for at least one additional psychiatric disorder. The present study evaluated the utility of the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (MINI) in assessing co-occurring psychiatric disorders in children, adolescents, and young adults with ASD. Ninety-one percent of children/adolescents and thirty-one percent of young adults were diagnosed with one or more co-occurring diagnoses using the MINI. MINI diagnostic rates were comparable to...
