Publisher and Date:(2001)We report a case of pulmonary trunk aneurysm extending into the left pulmonary artery due to pulmonary hypertension secondary to mitral valve disease. The mitral valve was replaced with a bileaflet mechanical prosthesis. A Dacron graft interposed between main trunk and left pulmonary artery branch and right pulmonary branch attached to the graft in an end-to-side fashion. Early postoperative angiogram revealed a very successful treatment.

Publisher and Date:(Edizioni Minerva Medica, 2003)Experimental studies in animals play a major role in the progress of medicine. Different surgical techniques have been described for heterotopic heart transplantation in rats. in this study we introduce a new technique for heart transplantation in thc abdominal cavity of rats. Fifteen Sprague Dawley rats have been used as recipients and 15 others as donors. Following preparation of recipient abdominal aorta and left renal vein the donor heart including proximal arcus aorta was harvested. Donor ...

Publisher and Date:(Texas Heart Inst., 2001)Blunt injury to the cardiac valves leads to progressive acute ventricular failure which often requires urgent surgical management In this case report we describe an acute aortic valve rupture caused by air-bag inflation during an automobile accident. Laceration of an aortic valve cusp was treated successfully with urgent aortic valve replacement. A concomitant orthopedic injury was treated electively 15 days after cardiac surgery. Acute aortic valve rupture is a very rare complication of blunt ...
Clinical experience with coronary sinus catheterization in minimally invasive aortic valve surgery under transesophageal echocardiography guidance Authors:Demirsoy, Ergun; Ozbek, Ugur; Bayındır, Osman; Sonmez, Baris
Publisher and Date:(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2002)We aimed to show conventional coronary sinus (CS) catheter could be used with transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) guidance through the limited surgical field in aortic valve surgery with 'J' sternotomy. This method was performed in 14 patients and completed successfully in 12. We believe that in minimally invasive aortic valve surgery the insertion of the conventional retrograde cardioplegia catheter to the CS with routine way may not be possible but application of TEE guidance is cost-effective ...

Publisher and Date:(Medimond Srl, 2000)Per operative coronary angiography has always been desired by coronary surgeons. Direct coronary angiographic imaging is not practical since needs contrast injection requires radiation and excessive technology with experienced staff which adds more expenses. Thermal angiography device IVA-2000 (OPGAL) is started to be used in our coronary bypass operations as a routine procedure. Thermal imaging provides an effective and real time coronary angiograms which provides very clear coronary angiograms ...

Publisher and Date:(BLACKWELL FUTURA PUBLISHING INC, 2003)Recurrence of ductal patency is a rarely encountered complication in surgical repair of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). An adult patient with ductal recurrency underwent closure of ductus by using cardiopulmonary bypass via transpulmonary approach. She had significant improvement of symptoms and no residual shunt or pseudoneurysm seven months after surgery.
Surgical treatment of tachyarrhythmias due to postinfarction left ventricular aneurysm with endoaneurysmorrhaphy and cryoablation Authors:Wellens, Francis; Geelen, Peter; Demirsoy, Ergun; Van Praet, Frank; De Geest, Raphael; Degrieck, Ivan; Vanermen, Hugo; Brugada, Pedro
Publisher and Date:(Elsevier Science Bv, 2002)Objective: In this study the efficacy of left ventricular (LV) endoaneurysmorrhaphy and cryoablation without intraoperative electrophysiologic mapping was evaluated in patients with postinfarction LV aneurysm and sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT). Methods: A prospective study was performed on all patients operated with malignant VT in the presence of a resectable LV aneurysm between July 1990 and February 2001. Results: The study included 31 patients 20 men and 11 women with a mean age of ...
The role of posterior pericardiotomy on the incidence of atrial fibrillation after coronary revascularization Authors:Arbatlı, Harun; Demirsoy, Ergun; Aytekin, Saide; Rizaoglu, E.; Unal, M.; Yagan, N.; Sonmez, Bingür
Publisher and Date:(Edizioni Minerva Medica, 2003)Aim. Pericardial effusion and atrial fibrillation (AF) are two common complications in coronary revascularization surgery. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of posterior pericardiotomy in pericardial. effusion and AF. Methods. This randomized prospective study includes 113 patients who underwent isolated CABG procedure between May 2000 and December 2000 in our hospital. Posterior pericardiotomy incision was done in Group I (n=54). Group II constituted the control group (n=59). ...
