OBJECTIVES Unanticipated cancellation of a surgical procedure is a common problem, causing distress to the patient and increases in healthcare costs. However, limited evidence exists on the effects of last-minute cancellations of cardiothoracic surgical procedures in particular. The goal of this study was to gain insight into the prevalence of and the reasons for last-minute cancellations and to examine whether cancellation is associated with adverse medical outcomes. METHODS Patients who were s...

OBJECTIVES Since the turn of the century, cardiac surgery has evolved quite notably. This study sought to investigate the trends in aortic valve surgery activity and subsequent outcomes in the UK by using a mandatory national cardiac surgical clinical database within the context of a comprehensive public healthcare system (National Health Service). METHODS The UK National Adult Cardiac Surgery Audit database provided data for aortic valve surgery procedures performed between 2002 and 2016, and t...
A 39-year-old man was referred to our hospital as infective endocarditis with multiple organ failure and disseminated intravascular coagulation syndrome. Transoesophageal echocardiography and coronary computed tomography angiography revealed a long ingrowing vegetation into the right coronary artery. Emergency surgical resection of the vegetation and aortic valve replacement was performed successfully without distal embolism of the vegetation.

OBJECTIVES Increasing evidence suggests that aortic valve (AV) repair may have better long-term outcomes than AV replacement for aortic insufficiency. However, most literature is limited to centres of excellence and has not sufficiently been replicated in nascent programs. This single-centre experience of a newly established AV repair program aims to compare short-term outcomes of AV sparing versus replacement surgery. METHODS A retrospective cohort study of patients who underwent elective surge...
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to retrospectively analyse surgical outcomes of patients undergoing secondary cardiac surgery after initial transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). METHODS Between December 2012 and February 2020, a total of 41 consecutive patients underwent cardiac surgery after a TAVR procedure at our institution. Patients who underwent emergency operations due to periprocedural complications such as ventricular rupture and TAVR dislocation were excluded from t...

OBJECTIVES Implanted lung volume-reduction surgery due to donor/recipient size mismatch could affect both lung function and survival. We examined the outcomes of lung volume-reduction procedures post-lung transplant. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 366 consecutive adult lung transplants carried out between January 2014 and December 2018 at one single centre. Patients were divided into either a non-reduced-size lung transplant or a reduced-size lung transplant (RT) group. To adjust for covari...
