Introduction null Aortic dissection (AD) is a life-threatening emergency, and lumican (LUM) is a potential Biomarker for AD diagnosis. We investigated LUM expression patterns in patients with AD and explored the molecular functions of Lum in AD mice model. null Methods null LUM expression patterns were analyzed using aortic tissues of AD patients, and serum soluble LUM (s-LUM) levels were compared between patients with acute AD (AAD) and chronic AD (CAD). Lum-knockout (Lum-/-) mice were challeng...

Abstract Background Aortic dissection (AD) is a life-threatening emergency. However, the heritability and association of family history with late outcomes are unclear. Objectives The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of family history of AD on the incidence and prognosis of AD and estimate the heritability and environmental contribution in AD in Taiwan. Methods Both cross-sectional and cohort studies were conducted using Taiwan National Health Insurance database. A registry parent...

Background: The transfemoral route is contraindicated in nearly 10% of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) candidates because of unsuitable iliofemoral vessels. Transaxillary (TAx) and direct aortic (DAo) routes are the principal nonfemoral TAVR routes; however, few studies have compared their outcomes. Methods: We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to compare the rates of mortality, stroke, and other adverse events of TAx and DAo TAVR. The study was prospectively register...

: To investigate the incidence, outcomes, and risk factors of postoperative acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) in patients undergoing surgical repair for acute type A aortic dissection.This retrospective study involved 270 patients who underwent surgical repair for acute type A aortic dissection between January 2009 and December 2015. Data on clinical characteristics and outcomes were collected. Patients who immediately died after surgery and with preoperative myocardial dysfunction were...

OBJECTIVES: The best preservation solution for a free vascular graft prior to coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) remains controversial. The aim of this investigation was to evaluate the microenvironment of the human saphenous vein graft when preserved in normal saline (NS) solution or autologous heparinized whole blood (AWB). METHODS: Between January 2014 and December 2014, 21 patients who underwent CABG were enrolled and a total of 162 saphenous vein graft rings were collected. NS and AWB w...

Abstract Background Sutureless aortic valve replacement (SU-AVR) has emerged as a promising alternative for the treatment of patients with aortic valve stenosis. This study aims to assess the safety and efficacy of SU-AVR in an elderly Asian population. Methods From June 2015 to May 2016, 15 adults with severe aortic stenosis (9 females) with a median age of 79 years underwent Perceval sutureless bioprosthesis (LivaNova, UK) implantation in a single Taiwanese institution; peri-operative recovery...

The feasibility and durability of mitral valve (MV) repair in active infective endocarditis (IE) has been reported, but proper management of perioperative neurological complications and surgical timing remains uncertain and may crucially affect the outcome. In this single-center retrospective observational study, patients who underwent isolated MV surgery for active native IE in our institution between August 2005 and August 2015 were reviewed and analyzed. Patients who were operated on for heal...

: Cardiovascular disease is the major morbidity and leading cause of mortality for dialysis-dependent patients. This study aimed to stratify the risk factors and effects of dialysis modes in relation to coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery among dialysis-dependent patients.This retrospective study enrolled dialysis-dependent patients who underwent CABG from October 2005 to January 2015. All data of demographics, medical history, surgical details, postoperative complications, and in-hos...

Abstract With aging and stress, the myocardium undergoes structural remodeling, often leading to fibrosis. The purpose of this study is to examine whether lumican, one of the class II small leucine-rich proteoglycans, has a protective role in cardiac remodeling and fibrosis. In attempts to elucidate the hypothesis that lumican may have a protective role in cardiac remodeling and fibrosis, we compared the cardiac phenotypes of young (3-month-old) and elder (6-month- and 12-month-old) lumican -nul...
