Randomized Trial of Endoscopic or Open Vein-Graft Harvesting for Coronary-Artery Bypass
31/12/69 - Despite evidence favoring the use of multiple arterial conduits for coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG), the greater saphenous vein remains the most commonly used conduit worldwide because of its ready availability and ease of use. The two main limitations of vein grafts in myocardial…

Hybrid Minimally Invasive Esophagectomy for Esophageal Cancer
31/12/69 - Esophageal cancer is among the cancers with the most rapidly increasing incidence in the Western world. Overall survival among patients with esophageal cancer remains poor; the 5-year survival is 10 to 15% among all patients but increases to 40% among patients who undergo curative surgery.…

Open or Endoscopic Vein Harvesting for Coronary-Artery Bypass Grafting
31/12/69 - Coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) is the most common cardiac surgical procedure performed worldwide, with more than 200,000 of the procedures performed annually in the United States alone.

Transcatheter Mitral-Valve Repair in Patients with Heart Failure
31/12/69 - In patients with heart failure and left ventricular dilatation, mitral regurgitation may develop as a result of the geometric dislocation of the papillary muscles and chordae tendineae, impairing coaptation of the mitral leaflets. Such secondary (functional) mitral regurgitation increases the…

Percutaneous Repair of Secondary Mitral Regurgitation ? A Tale of Two Trials
31/12/69 - The mitral valve is a complex structure encompassing the valve leaflets, annulus, chordae tendineae, and papillary muscles. Primary mitral regurgitation is caused by a primary leaflet abnormality, whereas secondary mitral regurgitation occurs when structurally normal valve leaflets are unable to…
