  • Valvectomy versus Replacement for the Surgical Treatment of Tricuspid Endocarditis. [Journal Article]
  • ATAnn Thorac Surg 2018 May 16
  • Protos AN, Trivedi JR, … Slaughter MS
  • CONCLUSIONS: Tricuspid valve excision, repair, and replacement have similar 30-day operative mortality, as defined by the STS, in TV endocarditis patients and significantly lower unplanned readmission rates at one year in the excision patients. Tricuspid valvectomy is an acceptable initial treatment in this high-risk group as part of a surgical strategy to identify patients who are candidates for eventual valve replacement. Further study of long term outcomes and survival is warranted.
  • Outcomes of Planned 2-Stage Hybrid Aortic Repair with Dacron Replaced Proximal Landing Zone. [Journal Article]
  • ATAnn Thorac Surg 2018 May 15
  • Ranney DN, Yerokun BA, … Hughes GC
  • CONCLUSIONS: Planned 2-stage HAR with open 1st stage PAR followed by 2nd stage TEVAR with Dacron replaced PLZ yields excellent short and long-term results, including low rates of re-intervention likely due to long-segment PLZ within Dacron-replaced aorta. The technique should be considered in patients with even mild (>4.0 cm) ascending aortic dilation in whom HAR is otherwise the preferred treatment option.
