ABSTRACT

A 34-year-old man had been in a motor vehicle accident at age 21. Thirteen years later, he complained of fatigue and palpitations, and was evaluated at an outside hospital. Echocardiography revealed severe tricuspid regurgitation and the patient was referred to our institution for treatment. The anterior leaflet of the tricuspid valve was torn and the attached chorda was also torn. The torn anterior leaflet was sutured directly, and an artificial chorda was created using an e-PTFE suture. An annuloplasty was performed with a 34mm Carpentier-Edwards ring. The patient's recovery was uneventful, and postoperative echocardiography revealed no regurgitation.

ABSTRACT

The retroperitoneal approach for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) has been used to reduce the risk of postoperative ileus and respiratory failure. This technique is usually used in patients with non-ruptured infrarenal AAA because it has been considered to be more time consuming to approach the aorta than the normal transabdominal approach. However, we may not have sufficient information if the aneurysm is confined to the infrarenal abdominal aorta in a ruptured case. In such a situation, the retroperitoneal approach might be better than the transabdominal approach because an aortic clamp can easily be applied to the suprarenal aorta. We report three cases of ruptured AAA treated successfully by the retroperitoneal approach.

ABSTRACT

Six (1.2%) of 501 patients sustained phrenic nerve injury during operation for congenital heart disease at our institutions between 1992 and 1998. The diagnosis was confirmed by percutaneous stimulation of the phrenic nerve. All but 1 patient were less than 9 months old, and the average weight was 3.6kg. All 6 patients underwent diaphragmatic plication and were extubated by 7 days after operation. Percutaneous stimulation of the phrenic nerve allowed direct assessment of phrenic nerve function which was difficult to detect by clinical and radiological evidence. This method can be non-invasively used at the bedside to facilitate early and accurate diagnosis of phrenic nerve palsy.

ABSTRACT

We report a case of successful graft replacement of the total aortic arch using selective cerebral perfusion for recurrent distal aortic arch aneurysm (DAAA). A 72-year-old man who had a history of patch aortoplasty for saccular DAAA was admitted to our hospital. Computed tomography and digital subtraction angiography showed recurrent saccular DAAA and coronary angiography revealed 90% stenosis of the first diagonal branch, resulting in a diagnosis of recurrent DAAA with coronary artery stenosis. A graft replacement of the total aortic arch with the aid of selective cerebral perfusion and coronary artery bypass grafting to the first diagonal branch was carried out. Postoperatively, he had no cerebral complications. One year after the operation, he had an operation for an abdominal aortic aneurysm. The patient is now leading a normal life.

ABSTRACT

We reported a rare case of myxoma originating from the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve. A 65-year-old woman was admitted with sympotomes of easily fatigability and palpitation. On auscultation, a grade II/IV systolic murmur was audible at the apex. Echocardiography demonstrated a dense mass arising from the anterior mitral leaflet. The tumor (16×13×10mm in size) was resected from the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve. There was no definite evidence of a tumor stalk on the mitral valve nor valve regurgitation after the operation. Microscopically, polyhedral cells were recognized, indicating myxoma. The postoperative course was uneventful and no recurrence has been noticed during the past 6 years.

ABSTRACT

Between March 1985 and May 1988 we performed valve replacement to 86 cases using 92 Duromedics prosthetic valves in the atrioventricular position. Long term results were obtained, we examined the problem (especially thrombosed valve). The cumulative follow-up was 313.6 patients-year (p-y). The 6-year actuarial survival rate including early mortality was 83.4±4.1%. The valve-related complications were as follows; peripheral embolism 3 cases (1.0%/p-y), thrombosed valve 7 cases (2.2%/p-y), hemorrhage and paravalvular leakage each 1 case (0.3%/p-y). All valve-related complications were 12 cases (3.8%/p-y). Reoperation for valve-related complications were 5 cases (1.6%/p-y), it was all to thrombosed prosthetic valve. Thrombosed valve were seen 7 cases (4 cases in mitral, 3 cases in tricuspid position). The event free rate of thrombosed valve was 89.1±4.0%. It was high incidence in tricuspid position. We concluded that it was necessary to be done early reoperation the time of fixed with one leaflet alone.

ABSTRACT

The total correction of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) after the right ventricular outflow tract construction without ventricular septal defect closure which is called central palliation is rarely reported. A case of TOF had been undergone the central palliation because of left ventricular hypoplasia in a 30 year-old woman, 19 years after Blalock-Taussig's shunt. She was performed successfuly on the total correction of TOF and pulmonary valve replacement at 35 years old, 5 years after the central palliation.
