Abstract: We report successful repair of a rare combination of aortic arch atresia and diffuse long-segment hypoplasia of the descending aorta in a 2-month-old infant with PHACES association. Intraoperative findings and surgical techniques are discussed.

    Abstract: Video-assisted minimally invasive cardiac surgery (VAMICS) is currently performed with various indications. However, despite the increasing evidence of its effectiveness, new approaches have to be defined to simplify this procedure, minimize its potential complications and limit its...

    Abstract: Objective: Off-pump trans left ventricular approach provides more precise deployment of stented aortic valve of any size with respect to the endovascular replacement. One of the key steps of this procedure is the ventricle repair after catheter withdrawing. We designed an animal study...

    Abstract: We report a new anastomotic ‘turn-up’ technique in the surgery for acute aortic dissection. This technique includes eversion of the ends of the graft which allows excellent cross-sectional exposure of the aorta and the graft. In our experiences of consecutive 30 cases,...

    Following translatai oesophagectomy, delivery of the conduit into the posterior mediastinum and neck can potentially result in its devascularisation. A simple technique is described to protect the conduit during this phase of the operation. This procedure has now been performed in 56 consecutive...
