Background: Three-dimensional aortic root evaluation using virtual reality (VR) techniques for valve-sparing aortic root replacement (VSARR) preparation has not yet been implemented, so we demonstrated VR computed tomography (VR-CT) and assessed its utility for VSARR.Methods and Results: We enrolled 72 patients who underwent multidetector CT before elective VSARR for annuloaortic ectasia with tricuspid aortic valve. The geometries of their aortic roots were measured with a VR-CT workstation. The mean values of geometric height (GH), free margin length (FML), and commissural height (CH) were 17.2±2.4 mm, 36.0±5.2 mm, and 24.0±4.3 mm, respectively. The right coronary/noncoronary CH was significantly greater than the left coronary/right coronary and left coronary/noncoronary CH. The left coronary cusp had the shortest FML, intercommissural distances (ICD), and smallest central angle. Although the right coronary cusp had the largest values for FML, ICD, and central angle, the right coronary cusp had the lowest GH and EH. The VR-CT measurements strongly correlated with intraoperative alternatives, especially with mean GH (R2=0.75) and left coronary/noncoronary CH (R2=0.79). Furthermore, mean GH was observed to be significantly different among the selected graft size groups; therefore, the preoperative mean GH could play a significant role in graft sizing.Conclusions: VR-CT evaluation allows a thorough understanding of aortic root anatomy, which could facilitate VSAAR.

Emergency aortic valve replacement with double aorto-coronary bypass surgery was performed to treat severe intractable congestive heart failure in an 82-year-old man. Mild circumflex and left anterior descending artery lesions were present and the pressure gradient across the aortic valve was 80 mmHg despite a low cardiac output. The preoperative anteroseptal akinesia seen by two-dimensional echocardiography was normalized after surgery. Thus, even in patients with segmental left ventricular dyfunction, tight aortic stenosis might be present when concomitant mild ischemic heart disease is present.

Background:This study retrospectively evaluated the long-term patient outcomes and durability of the Mosaic mitral porcine bioprosthesis in the Japan Mosaic valve long-term multicenter study.Methods and Results:The medical records of 390 patients who underwent mitral valve replacement with the Mosaic bioprosthesis at 10 centers in Japan (1999–2014) were reviewed. Patient data were collected using the Research Electronic Data Capture software. Patient survival was determined using the Kaplan-Meier method. Freedom from structural valve deterioration (SVD) and valve-related reoperation and death were determined using actuarial methods. The median (interquartile range [IQR]) age of the cohort was 73 (69–77) years. The median (IQR) follow-up period was 4.83 (1.84–8.26) years. The longest follow-up period was 15.8 years. The 30-day mortality rate was 5.4%. The 12-year actuarial survival rate was 54.1±4.5%, and the freedom from valve-related death was 85.3±3.4%. The freedom from reoperation at 12 years was 74.3±5.7%. The freedom from SVD at 12 years was 81.4±6.6% for patients aged ≥65 years and 71.6±11.1% for those aged <65 years. The median (IQR) mean pressure gradient was 4.1 (3.0–6.0) and 5.6 (4.0–6.7) mmHg at 1 and 10 years, respectively. The median (IQR) effective orifice area was 1.7 (1.4–2.0) and 1.4 (1.2–1.6) cm2at 1 and 10 years, respectively.Conclusions:The Mosaic porcine bioprosthesis offered satisfactory long-term outcomes for up to 12 years.

Background:While hemodynamics and exercise capacity in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) can be improved by invasive therapy such as pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA) and balloon pulmonary angioplasty (BPA), there has been little data on the health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in such patients.Methods and Results:This single-center and observational study compared the impact of invasive therapy on HRQOL. We utilized the Medical Outcome Study 36-Item Short Health Survey (SF-36) to measure HRQOL and compared HRQOL changes after PEA and BPA. A total of 48 patients were diagnosed with CTEPH. Of these, 39 patients completed questionnaires before and after invasive therapy. The PEA group (n=15) and the BPA group (n=24) had similar improvements in clinical parameters. With regard to HRQOL score, both groups had fairly low scores in physical functioning (PF), role physical (RP), general health (GH), social functioning (SF), role emotional (RE), and physical component summary (PCS) at baseline. PF, GH, vitality (VT), mental health (MH), and PCS had significant improvements in the PEA group while PCS and all subscales except for bodily pain (BP) had significant improvements in the BPA group. Furthermore, changes between baseline and follow-up were not significantly different between the 2 groups.Conclusions:BPA for patients who are ineligible for PEA can recover HRQOL to a similar level to that achieved by PEA.

A 73-year-old man, with congestive heart failure due to combined valvar disease, underwent curative surgery. Although the surgery was successful, his clinical course was eventful because of pulmonary complications, and he began to deteriorate mentally. Quetiapine was prescribed, which appeared to effectively settle his mental status. Following the administration of quetiapine, however, he developed acute kidney injury (AKI) that required continuous hemodiafiltration. Subsequent to discontinuation of quetiapine, his renal function gradually improved. Atypical antipsychotic drugs, including quetiapine, are frequently used to treat delirium in elderly patients in the intensive-care setting. This case highlights a potential risk of quetiapine-related AKI.
