PURPOSE: Medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction offers good clinical results with a very low rate of instability recurrence. However, its in vivo effect on patellar tracking is not clearly known. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of MPFL reconstruction on patellar tracking using dynamic 320-detector-row CT. METHODS: Ten patients with patellofemoral instability referred to isolated MPFL reconstruction surgery were selected and subjected to dynamic CT before and ≥6 months after surgery. Patellar tilt angles and shift distance were analysed using computer software specifically designed for this purpose. Kujala and Tegner scores were applied, and the radiation of the CTs was recorded. Two protocols for imaging acquisition were compared: a tube potential of 80 kV and 50 mA versus a tube potential of 120 kV and 100 mA, both with a slice thickness of 0.5 mm and an acquisition duration of 10 s. RESULTS: There were no changes in patellar tracking after MPFL reconstruction. There was no instability relapse. Clinical scores improved from a mean of 51.9 (±15.6)-74.2 (±20.9) on the Kujala scale (p = 0.011) and from a median of 2 (range 0-4) to 4 (range 1-6) on the Tegner scale (p = 0.017). The imaging protocols produced a dose-length product (DLP) of 254 versus 1617 mGycm and a radiation effective estimated dose of 0.2 versus 1.3 mSv, respectively. Both protocols allowed the analysis of the studied parameters without loss of precision. CONCLUSIONS: Reconstruction of the MPFL produced no improvement in patellar tilt or shift in the population studied. The low-radiation protocol was equally effective in measuring changes in patellar tracking and is recommended. Although the procedure successfully stabilized the patella, knee surgeons should not expect patellar shift and tilt correction when performing isolated patellofemoral ligament reconstruction in patients with recurrent patellar instability. LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: IV.

BACKGROUND: Although the release of cardiac biomarkers after percutaneous (PCI) or surgical revascularization (CABG) is common, its prognostic significance is not known. Questions remain about the mechanisms and degree of correlation between the release, the volume of myocardial tissue loss, and the long-term significance. Delayed-enhancement of cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) consistently quantifies areas of irreversible myocardial injury. To investigate the quantitative relationship between irreversible injury and cardiac biomarkers, we will evaluate the extent of irreversible injury in patients undergoing PCI and CABG and relate it to postprocedural modifications in cardiac biomarkers and long-term prognosis. METHODS/DESIGN: The study will include 150 patients with multivessel coronary artery disease (CAD) with left ventricle ejection fraction (LVEF) and a formal indication for CABG; 50 patients will undergo CABG with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB); 50 patients with the same arterial and ventricular condition indicated for myocardial revascularization will undergo CABG without CPB; and another 50 patients with CAD and preserved ventricular function will undergo PCI using stents. All patients will undergo CMR before and after surgery or PCI. We will also evaluate the release of cardiac markers of necrosis immediately before and after each procedure. Primary outcome considered is overall death in a 5-year follow-up. Secondary outcomes are levels of CK-MB isoenzyme and I-Troponin in association with presence of myocardial fibrosis and systolic left ventricle dysfunction assessed by CMR. DISCUSSION: The MASS-V Trial aims to establish reliable values for parameters of enzyme markers of myocardial necrosis in the absence of manifest myocardial infarction after mechanical interventions. The establishments of these indices have diagnostic value and clinical prognosis and therefore require relevant and different therapeutic measures. In daily practice, the inappropriate use of these necrosis markers has led to misdiagnosis and therefore wrong treatment. The appearance of a more sensitive tool such as CMR provides an unprecedented diagnostic accuracy of myocardial damage when correlated with necrosis enzyme markers. We aim to correlate laboratory data with imaging, thereby establishing more refined data on the presence or absence of irreversible myocardial injury after the procedure, either percutaneous or surgical, and this, with or without the use of cardiopulmonary bypass.

OBJECTIVE: The goals of this study were to determine the prevalence of hypertension and recoarctation in operated children and teenagers and to integrate clinical and imaging technique data. METHODS: One hundred thirteen infants and children (ages 14 years or less) were retrospectively divided into 3 groups according to the age at operation and the surgical technique: 79 underwent resection with end-to-end anastomosis; 14 had patch enlargement; 13 had subclavian flap aortoplasty; and 7 had other techniques performed. The mean age at operation was 3.95 +/- 4.17 years and the mean follow-up period was 4.62 +/- 4.90 years. Each patient was clinically examined and Doppler echocardiography was performed in 112 patients. Sixty-six patients underwent magnetic resonance imaging. Diameters of aortic arch were measured at 4 levels; the ratios between each one and descendent aorta diameters were calculated. Qualitative variables and associations were studied by Fisher exact test or chi-squared test. Comparisons of measurements in different groups were performed using variance analysis, with tests of selective contrasts (nonparametric tests). The level of statistical significance was <.05. RESULTS: The prevalence of hypertension and recoarctation was 38% and 14%, respectively. No statistical difference was found among the age groups. In 65 patients who underwent magnetic resonance imaging, the transverse aortic arch was hypoplastic in 31 (47%) patients; 41 (63%) had stenosis at the site of anastomosis (ratio < 0.9). CONCLUSION: Hypoplasia of transverse aortic arch was highly prevalent. These data suggest that hypoplastic aortic arch should be corrected concomitantly with coarctation.
