    Author(s): Elena Cavarretta* and Adriana Maras
    The prevalence of moderate to severe calcific aortic valve stenosis in patients ≥75 years old is 2.8% and only 40% of patients with surgical indication undergo aortic valve replacement because of high perioperative risk, older age, lack of symptoms, and patient/family refusal [1]. In the absence of hemodynamically significant left ventricular (LV) outflow obstruction, ...

    Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) has been designed to treat elderly patients with severe aortic stenosis considered high-risk surgical candidates. Due to the large device size, even of current generation systems, the trans-femoral approach requires favorable ilio-femoral arterial anatomy; this approach is contraindicated in patients with excessive ath ...

    A pseudo aneurysm, also known as a false aneurysm, is a hematoma that forms as a result of a leaking hole in artery. Hematoma was contained by the surrounding tissues. Also it must continue to communicate with the artery to be considered a pseudo aneurysm. Post stab injury subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm is rare entity with great significance because of risk of compl ...

    Author(s): Suraj Wasudeo Nagre*
    The history of surgery for transposition of great arteries (TGA) has paralleled the history of cardiac surgery. In fact, it began before the birth of open heart surgery when the palliative Blalock-Hanlon septectomy was first performed in 1948. The atrial switch, which was an attempt to correct the physiology of transposition, had significant shortcomings. The arterial ...

    Author(s): Suraj Wasudeo Nagre*
    Although coronary endarterectomy is an option for surgical reconstruction of a diffusely diseased vessel, it has not been widely used. In coronary artery bypass grafting, a diffusely diseased left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD) is an obstacle to achieving complete revascularization, consequently leading to the possibility of a poor prognosis. Here, we repor ... CrossMark Publons Harvard Library HOLLIS Search IT Semantic Scholar Get Citation Base Search Scilit OAI-PMH ResearchGate Academic Microsoft GrowKudos
