OBJECTIVES Our goal was to evaluate the morphology of the aortic arch, focusing on the left subclavian artery (LSA), and to anticipate implications for single-branched endovascular aortic arch repair. METHODS We performed a morphological analysis of computed tomography angiography scans of 322 patients between January 2002 and December 2018. Arch type and distance between arch vessels on the convexity were evaluated. We defined 3 morphological types: U-type distance between the left common carot...

Objectives null Cardiac tamponade is a life-threatening complication after cardiac surgery. Echocardiography, both transthoracic (TTE) and transesophageal (TEE), may help to identify cardiac tamponade after surgery, but its diagnostic value remains unverified after cardiac surgery. null Methods null This retrospective single-centre cohort study used the electronic medical record and echocardiography database of the Catharina Hospital Eindhoven, a tertiary referral cardiothoracic centre, to ident...

OBJECTIVES Our goal was to evaluate whether four-dimensional (4D) flow magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can predict the growth rate of dilatation of the ascending aorta (AA) in patients with a tricuspid, normally functioning aortic valve. METHODS In this prospective clinical study, aortic 4D flow MRI was performed at the Kuopio University Hospital on 30 patients diagnosed with AA dilatation (maximum diameter >40 mm) between August 2017 and July 2020. The MRI was repeated after a 1-year follow-up...

OBJECTIVES Cardiac biomarkers are indicators of irreversible cell damage. Current myocardial infarction (MI) definitions require concomitant clinical characteristics. For perioperative MI, a correlation of biomarker elevations and mortality has been suggested. Definitions emerged relying on cardiac biomarker release only. This approach is questionable as several clinical and experimental scenarios exist where relevant biomarker release can occur apart from MI. METHODS We reviewed the clinical an...

OBJECTIVES The prognostic role of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation remains controversial, especially in early-stage lung adenocarcinoma with a solid appearance. We evaluated the oncological outcomes of clinical stage I (c-stage I) radiologically invasive lung adenocarcinoma by EGFR mutation status. METHODS Between 2008 and 2013, the data from 463 surgically resected c-stage I radiologically invasive, i.e. solid-dominant lung adenocarcinomas subjected to EGFR mutant analysis, ...

OBJECTIVES The goal of this analysis of the Perceval aortic bioprosthesis was to investigate the ovalization/deformation of the Perceval prosthesis stent after implantation and its propensity for cusp dysfunction, fluttering, fibrosis and blockage. METHODS Between August 2014 and May 2019, a total of 134 patients (52% female) underwent aortic valve replacement with the Perceval bioprosthesis. We reconstructed three-dimensional models of the Perceval stent using thorax computed tomography scans f...

Objectives null The influence of preoperative left ventricular size in outcomes following centrifugal-flow left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation has not been well characterized. null Methods null A cohort of 313 patients who received a centrifugal-flow LVAD at a single institution was analysed. Using a maximally selected log-rank statistic, we investigated whether a left ventricular end-diastolic dimension (LVEDD) cut-off point was associated with worse outcomes. The cohort was then...
