Modified Ravitch Procedure for Pectus Excavatum Combined With Complex Cardiac Surgery.

Anthony L Zaki, Patrick R Vargo, Dean P Schraufnagel, Vidyasagar Kalahasti, Sudish Murthy, Eric E Roselli, Daniel P Raymond,

Pectus excavatum is common in patients with connective tissue disorders or congenital heart disease undergoing cardiac surgery, and is occasionally severe enough to warrant repair. The optimal surgical strategy is currently debated. We report our experience with simultaneous repair. From January 2012 to January 2020, 11 patients (median age of ... Read more >>

Current era left ventricular assist devices.

Michael J Javorski, Anthony Zaki, Motaz Abas, Haytham Elgharably, Tamer S Attia,

Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) have changed the landscape of treatment options for patients with end stage heart failure. Due to the limited availability of donor hearts for transplantation, LVADs have become an important option for many of these patients. Much progress has been made in the device industry since ...

Modern practice and outcomes of reoperative cardiac surgery.

Bogdan A Kindzelski, Faisal G Bakaeen, Michael Z Tong, Eric E Roselli, Edward G Soltesz, Douglas R Johnston, Per Wierup, Gösta B Pettersson, Penny L Houghtaling, Eugene H Blackstone, A Marc Gillinov, Lars G Svensson, ,

<h4>Objectives</h4>To evaluate recent practice and outcomes of reoperative cardiac surgery via re-sternotomy. Use of early versus late institution of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) before sternal re-entry was of particular interest.<h4>Methods</h4>From January 2008 to July 2017, 7640 patients underwent reoperative cardiac surgery at Cleveland Clinic. The study group consisted of 6627 who ... Read more >>

Serious Gastrointestinal Complications After Cardiac Surgery and Associated Mortality.

Haytham Elgharably, Maysoon Gamaleldin, Kamal S Ayyat, Anthony Zaki, Kevin Hodges, Bogdan Kindzelski, Shashank Sharma, Tarek Hassab, Camille Yongue, Solanus de la Serna, Juan Perez, Capri Spencer, Faisal G Bakaeen, Scott R Steele, A Marc Gillinov, Lars G Svensson, Gosta B Pettersson,

<h4>Background</h4>Severe gastrointestinal (GI) complications (GICs) after cardiac surgery are associated with poor outcomes. Herein, we characterize the severe forms of GICs and associated risk factors of mortality.<h4>Methods</h4>We retrospectively analyzed the clinically significant postoperative GICs after cardiac surgical procedures performed at our institution from January 2010 to April 2017. Multivariable analysis ... Read more >>

Comparison of mechanical cardiopulmonary support strategies during lung transplantation.

Noah Weingarten, Dean Schraufnagel, Gilman Plitt, Anthony Zaki, Kamal S Ayyat, Haytham Elgharably,

<h4>Introduction</h4>Lung transplantation outcomes are influenced by the intraoperative mechanical cardiopulmonary support strategy used. This surgery was historically done either on cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) or off pump. Recently, there has been increased interest in intraoperative support with veno-arterial (VA) or veno-venous (VV) extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). However, there is a lack ...

Quantifying the learning curve of emergent total arch replacement in acute type A aortic dissection.

Huan Liu, Shun Liu, Anthony Zaki, Xiuwen Wang, Shuo Cong, Ye Yang, Jun Li, Hao Lai, Yongxin Sun, Lai Wei, Chunsheng Wang,

<h4>Background</h4>Acute type A aortic dissection with arch involvement is a life-threatening condition, which requires immediate surgical attention. Emergent total arch replacement and root reconstruction is a technically demanding operation with varying outcomes based on surgeon experience. The human factors in total arch replacement in the emergent setting have never been ... Read more >>

Pulmonary valve replacement in primary repair of tetralogy of Fallot in adult patients.

Huan Liu, Shun Liu, Anthony Zaki, Xiuwen Wang, Kai Zhu, Yuntao Lu, Ye Yang, Rafi Hamidi, Lai Wei, Chunsheng Wang,

<h4>Background</h4>Adults with unrepaired tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) are common in developing countries. Long-term overload of the right ventricle places adult patients at risk for postoperative right heart failure after primary repair, which contributes to morbidity and mortality. The effect of pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) in reducing postoperative morbidity and mortality ... Read more >>

Prothrombin Complex Concentrate Reduces Blood Product Utilization in Heart Transplantation.

Daniel H Enter, Anthony L Zaki, Megan Marsh, Nikki Cool, Jane Kruse, Zhi Li, Adin-Cristian Andrei, Adam Iddriss, Patrick M McCarthy, S Chris Malaisrie, Allen Anderson, Jonathan D Rich, Duc Thinh Pham,

<h4>Background</h4>Current practices for the reversal of warfarin before cardiac surgery include the use of vitamin K and fresh frozen plasma (FFP) to reduce the risk of bleeding. Although the 2010 International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation guidelines acknowledge the use of prothrombin complex concentrate (PCC), there is no clear ... Read more >>

A contemporary analysis of pulmonary hypertension in patients undergoing mitral valve surgery: Is this a risk factor?

Daniel H Enter, Anthony Zaki, Brett F Duncan, Jane Kruse, Adin-Cristian Andrei, Zhi Li, S Chris Malaisrie, Sanjiv J Shah, James D Thomas, Patrick M McCarthy,

<h4>Objective</h4>Pulmonary hypertension (PHT) has been considered a risk factor for mortality in cardiac surgery. Among mitral valve surgery (MVS) patients, we sought to determine if severe PHT increases mortality risk and if patients who undergo concomitant tricuspid valve surgery (TVS) incur additional risk.<h4>Methods</h4>Preoperative PHT was assessed in 1571 patients undergoing ...

Insulin therapy for pre-hyperglycemic beta-cell endoplasmic reticulum crowding.

Afaf Absood, Benjamin Gandomani, Anthony Zaki, Vlad Nasta, Andrew Michail, Peter M W Habib, Israel Hodish,

Insulin therapy improves β-cell function in early stages of diabetes by mechanisms that may exceed alleviation of glucotoxicity. In advance type 2 diabetes, hyperglycemia causes β-cell damage and ultimately β-cell loss. At such an advanced stage, therapeutic modalities are often inadequate. Growing evidence indicates that in early stages of type-2 ... Read more >>

In vivo misfolding of proinsulin below the threshold of frank diabetes.

Israel Hodish, Afaf Absood, Leanza Liu, Ming Liu, Leena Haataja, Dennis Larkin, Ahmed Al-Khafaji, Anthony Zaki, Peter Arvan,

<h4>Objective</h4>Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress has been described in pancreatic β-cells after onset of diabetes-a situation in which failing β-cells have exhausted available compensatory mechanisms. Herein we have compared two mouse models expressing equally small amounts of transgenic proinsulin in pancreatic β-cells.<h4>Research design and methods</h4>In hProCpepGFP mice, human proinsulin (tagged with ...
