Mesenteric fibromatosis mimicking a gastrointestinal stromal tumor.

Denise McCormack, Kilak Kesha, Shawn L Tittle, Pierre F Saldinger,

Mesenteric fibromatosis is a locally aggressive tumor of the mesentery with a high propensity for bowel involvement. Mesenteric fibromatosis often mimics gastrointestinal stromal tumors in size, location and immunohistochemical features. We report the case of a 30-year-old male who underwent resection of a mesenteric tumor, initially diagnosed as gastrointestinal stromal ... Read more >>

Cardiac surgeons and the quality movement: the Michigan experience.

Richard L Prager, Frederick R Armenti, Joseph S Bassett, Gail F Bell, Daniel Drake, Eric C Hanson, John C Heiser, Scott H Johnson, F B Plasman, Francis L Shannon, David Share, Patty Theurer, Jaelene Williams, ,

The Michigan Society of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeons created a voluntary quality collaborative with all the cardiac surgeons in the state and all hospitals doing adult cardiac surgery. Utilizing this collaborative over the last 3 years and creating a unique relationship with a payor, an approach to processes and outcomes ... Read more >>

Right ventricle-sparing heart transplantation effective against iatrogenic pulmonary hypertension.

Constantinos Lovoulos, Shawn Tittle, Lee Goldstein, David J Austin, Simran Singh, Edward Rocco, James Keane, Ping Tang, Gary S Kopf, John A Elefteriades,

BACKGROUND: Right heart failure is the predominant cause of death following heart transplantation, occurring with disturbingly high frequency in patients with severe antecedent pulmonary hypertension. We have recently reported a novel technique of heart transplantation that spares the recipient right ventricle, excising only the recipient left ventricle. The resulting model ... Read more >>

Alternate technique for implantation of left ventricular assist system: left thoracotomy for reoperative cases.

Shawn L Tittle, Divakar Mandapati, Gary S Kopf, John A Elefteriades,

Reoperation for Novacor left ventricular assist device placement after prior cardiac surgery is fraught with multiple technical challenges. We have found that a thoracotomy approach obviates these dangers very favorably. The technique is performed off bypass except for apical coring and apical connection. Novacor outflow is to the descending aorta. ... Read more >>

Novel technique for isolated accessory right heart transplantation for congenital heart disease.

John Elefteriades, Costantinos Lovoulos, Randolph Edwards, Shawn Tittle, Timothy Riley, Paul Tang, Edward Rocco, Gary Kopf,

BACKGROUND:Our prior laboratory work has permitted adding a whole donor heart to a preserved recipient right heart, producing a heart-and-a-half preparation able to cope with pulmonary hypertension in the recipient. The experiments in the present study explore the feasibility of the converse operation: adding an isolated donor right heart to ... Read more >>

Midterm follow-up of penetrating ulcer and intramural hematoma of the aorta.

Shawn L Tittle, Raymond J Lynch, Patricia E Cole, Harsimran S Singh, John A Rizzo, Gary S Kopf, John A Elefteriades,

OBJECTIVE:Most studies on variant forms of aortic dissection--penetrating ulcer and intramural hematoma--have focused on the initial presenting episode, with scant follow-up. This investigation provides midterm follow-up of penetrating ulcer and intramural hematoma to determine whether the aorta shows healing according to radiography, goes on to dilate, or tends to rupture ...

Yearly rupture or dissection rates for thoracic aortic aneurysms: simple prediction based on size.

Ryan R Davies, Lee J Goldstein, Michael A Coady, Shawn L Tittle, John A Rizzo, Gary S Kopf, John A Elefteriades,

BACKGROUND:Prior work has clarified the cumulative, lifetime risk of rupture or dissection based on the size of thoracic aneurysms. Ability to estimate simply the yearly rate of rupture or dissection would greatly enhance clinical decision making for specific patients. Calculation of such a rate requires robust data. METHODS:Data on 721 ... Read more >>
