Direct Re-implantation of Left Coronary Artery into the Aorta in Adults with Anomalous Origin of Left Coronary Artery from the Pulmonary Artery (ALCAPA) Reza Tavakoli1, Peiman Jamshidi2, Nassrin Yamani3, Max Gassmann1 1Institute of Veterinary Physiology and Zurich Center of Integrative Human Physiology (ZIHP), University of Zurich, 2Department of Cardiology, Canton Hospital Lucerne, 3Department of Radiology, Canton Hospital Lucerne Surgical correction of ALCAPA is highly recommended, regardless of age or the degree of intercoronary collateralization. This protocol presents a technique for the direct re-implantation of adult-type ALCAPA into the aorta to re-establish the dual-coronary perfusion. Whenever feasible, direct re-implantation is preferred to other surgical correction techniques.
Technique and Patient Selection Criteria of Right Anterior Mini-Thoracotomy for Minimal Access Aortic Valve Replacement Reza Tavakoli1,2, Pascal Leprince1, Max Gassmann2, Peiman Jamshidi3, Nassrin Yamani4, Julien Amour5, Guillaume Lebreton1 1Department of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery, Pitié Salpêtrière University Hospital, Assistance Publique, Hôpitaux de Paris (APHP), Institut de Cardiologie, 2Institute of Veterinary Physiology and Zurich Center for Integrative Human Physiology, University of Zurich, 3Herzzentrum Hirslanden, Klinik St Anna, 4Department of Radiology, Canton Hospital Lucerne, 5Department of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Unit, Pitié Salpêtrière University Hospital, Assistance Publique, Hôpitaux de Paris (APHP), Institut de Cardiologie The goal of this protocol is to describe in detail the technique of minimally invasive aortic valve replacement through a right anterior mini-thoracotomy and central aortic cannulation. This technique can potentially enhance patients' comfort and, by reducing post-operative morbidity, promote lowering the length of stay and global costs.
