ABSTRACT

Purpose : Easy and safe implantability, good post-operative valve function and good long-term durability are required for any bioprosthetic valve implanted in aortic position. The Carpentier Edwards Perimount Magna valve (Magna) was introduced in 2009 and the St. Jude Medical Trifecta valve (Trifecta) was introduced in 2012 to our institution. In this study, we compared implantability, early post-operative valve function and structural valve deterioration (SVD) between these two valves. Patients and Methods : Between January 2009 and December 2019, Magna or Trifecta were electively implanted for 254 patients (Magna 151 patients and Trifecta 103 patients) and these patients were included in this study. Implantability was evaluated by occurrence of intraoperative valve dysfunction. Early post-operative valve function was evaluated by mean pressure gradient (m-PG) and indexed aortic valve area (AVAI) by ultrasonography performed 10 days after surgery. The relationship between indexed bioprosthetic valve orifice area calculated from internal diameter (GOAI) and AVAI was evaluated. If there was a significant relationship between GOAI and AVAI, maximum body surface area (BSA) to obtain AVAI≥0.85 cm2/m2 was estimated from 99% reliable interval of regression line. Results : Age, gender, and BSA did not differ between the two groups. There was no intraoperative valve dysfunction in Magna ; however we experienced one patient with severe aortic regurgitation due to stent distortion by the aortic wall during surgery with the 25 mm Trifecta valve. For this patient, Trifecta was replaced with Magna intra-operatively. In the 19 mm valve, AVAI was significantly larger (1.12±0.27 cm2/m2 vs. 0.88±0.21 cm2/m2, p<0.001) and m-PG was significantly lower (8.7±2.7 mmHg vs. 17.2±6.3 mmHg, p<0.001) in Trifecta. The frequency of AVAI<0.85 cm2/m2 (24% vs. 49%, p=0.036) and the frequency of m-PG≥20 mmHg (0% vs. 26%, p=0.006) were significantly less in Trifecta. There was significant relationship between GOAI and AVAI in both valves. Maximum BSA to obtain AVAI ≥0.85 cm2/m2 was estimated as 1.35 m2 in Magna and 1.50 m2 in Trifecta. In the 21 mm valve, AVAI was significantly larger (1.14±0.23 cm2/m2 vs. 0.92±0.22 cm2/m2, p<0.001) and m-PG was significantly lower (7.8±3.2 mmHg vs. 14.6±4.7 mmHg, p<0.001) in Trifecta. The frequency of AVAI<0.85 cm2/m2 was significantly less in Trifecta (11% vs. 42%, p=0.002) ; however, the frequency of m-PG≥20 mmHg did not differ significantly. There was a significant relationship between GOAI and AVAI in Magna and Trifecta. Maximum BSA to obtain AVAI ≥0.85 cm2/m2 was estimated as 1.49 m2 in Magna and 1.70 m2 in Trifecta. In the 23 and 25 mm valves, AVAI was significantly larger and m-PG was significantly lower in Trifecta. However neither the frequency of AVAI<0.85 cm2/m2 nor m-PG≥20 mmHg differed between the two valves. There was one early (27 months after surgery) SVD due to leaflet tear in Trifecta and two SVDs due to leaflet calcification more than 10 years after surgery in Magna. Conclusion : For Trifecta implantation, valve size selection seemed to be important and larger valves should be avoided with narrow ST junctions. Selection of 19 and 21 mm Magna valves should be limited for the patient with a BSA less than 1.35 and 1.49 m2 respectively. In Trifecta, early SVD might occur and careful follow-up is necessary.

ABSTRACT

Background : Post-operative fluid management after cardiac valvular surgery is very important. In our institute, carperitide 0.0125 γ was started during surgery and oral furosemide 20-40 mg/day and spironolactone 25 mg/day were started at post-operative day (POD) 1 as the standard therapy. Tolvaptan, vasopressin V2 receptor antagonist, was started when fluid retention such as pleural effusion occurred. With this strategy, the frequency of pleural drainage was more than 40%. Therefore we changed our standard therapy in February 2018. In this new standard therapy, carperitide (0.0125 γ) was started and maintained until oral intake became possible and tolvaptan 7.5 mg was started with furosemide 20 mg and spironolactone 25 mg as oral medicine usually at POD 1. In this study, whether tolvaptan prevents pleural effusion or not after cardiac surgery was examined. Subjects and Methods : Sixty-four patients were operated during February 2017 and December 2018 were included in this study. Thirty-two patients operated in the period until January 2018 served as control group and were compared with 32 patients for whom tolvaptan was started on POD 1 (tolvaptan group). Results : There was no significant difference between two groups for background, operative procedure, operation time, cardiopulmonary bypass time, aortic cross clamp time and fluid balance during procedure. Tolvaptan was given to all patients in the tolvaptan group and in 22% of patients in the control group. Oral furosemide dose (tolvaptan group 21±5 mg/day, control group 31±20 mg/day, p=0.0112), and the frequency of patients with intravenous furosemide administration (tolvaptan group 9%, control group 44%, p=0.0038) were significantly less in tolvaptan group. In the tolvaptan group, intravenous furosemide administrated only once in all patients, whereas the frequency of intravenous furosemide administration was 1-32 times, average 6.6 times in control group. Tolvaptan was stopped within 1 week because of too much urination in two patients and the elevation of liver enzyme in two patients without any adverse effects. Post-operative urination volume until POD 5 did not differ. In both groups, body weight increased at POD 1 and 2 and returned to pre-operative weight at POD 3. Pleural effusion was significantly less in the tolvaptan group at POD 3 (tolvaptan group : none 66%, small amount 22%, moderate amount 3%, drain tube inserted 9%, control group : none 16%, small amount 34%, moderate amount 13%, drain tube inserted 38%, p=0.0003), at POD 7 (tolvaptan group : none 72%, small amount 28%, vs., control group : none 47%, small amount 19%, moderate amount 22%, drain tube inserted 13%, p=0.0041) and at discharge (tolvaptan group : none 94%, small amount 6%, vs., control group : none 69%, small amount 22%, moderate amount 9%, p=0.0301). The frequency of pleural drainage was also less in the tolvaptan group (tolvaptan group 9.4%, control group 44%, p=0.0038). Conclusion : After cardiac valvular surgery, tolvaptan started at POD 1 is very effective to reduce the frequency of pleural effusion and pleural drainage, and careful checking for too much urination and the elevation of liver enzymes is mandatory.

ABSTRACT

<p><b>Objective</b> : The ascending aortic cannulation (Ao-C) is the routine procedure for cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in our hospital. However, for patients with diseased ascending aorta, such as severely calcified aorta, dissected or aneurysmal aorta, we used brachiocephalic artery (BCA) cannulation. The effectiveness and simplicity of BCA cannulation was evaluated. <b>Methods</b> : For patients with diseased ascending aorta, BCA was cannulated when the diameter of BCA is larger than 10 mm and is free from calcification, since January 2013. There were 62 patients who underwent aortic valve replacement (AVR) for aortic valve stenosis and BCA cannulation was applied for 11 patients. Standard Ao-C was used for remaining 51 patients. There were 44 patients with dissected or aneurysmal ascending aorta and BCA cannulation was applied for 7 patients, axillary artery perfusion was used for 15 patients and standard Ao-C was used for 22 patients. Consciousness level at the time of awaking from general anesthesia and any complication related with BCA cannulation was evaluated for the effectiveness. Simplicity was evaluated by the time required to establish CPB after skin incision. <b>Results</b> : In AVR patients, there was 1 patient with delayed consciousness level recovery with BCA cannulation and this patient was found to have cerebral infarction by CT. Intraoperative aortic dissection, probably due to BCA cannulation was observed in 1 patient, very old fragile and long period steroid user. In diseased ascending aorta patients, no patient suffered neurological accident nor any complication due to cannulation. In AVR patients, the time required to establish CPB after skin incision was 51+/-9 min in BCA cannulation and 47+/-10 min in Ao-C patients (<i>p</i>=0.34). In diseased ascending aorta patients, the time required to establish CPB after skin incision was 49+/-49 min in BCA cannulation and 51+/-16 min (<i>p</i>=0.82). <b>Conclusion</b> : BCA cannulation is a very simple and safe technique to establish CPB for patients with diseased ascending aorta. However great care should be taken, and BCA cannulation should be avoided for the long term steroid users or patients with connective tissue disease.</p>

ABSTRACT

A 74-year-old woman underwent a triple CABG with saphenous vein grafts to the left anterior descending artery, left circumflex artery and right coronary artery (RCA) 17 years previously. Periodic echocardiography by primary care doctor showed a mediastinal mass. She was referred to our hospital and we diagnosed saphenous vein graft aneurysm (SVGA) by enhanced computed tomography. The aneurysm was 60 mm in diameter and originated from the SVG, extending to the RCA. Only around the proximal anastomosis was enhanced, while the other part of the aneurysm was filled with thrombus. Coronary angiography showed collateral circulation to RCA and the other 2 grafts were patent. Resternotomy was done under cardiopulmonary bypass and closure of the proximal anastomosis with aneurysm excision was successfully performed. The postoperative course was uneventful and she was discharged on the 26th post-operative day. We report our surgical strategy in this case.
