INTERDISCIPLINARY PROJECT: “3D PRINTING” AND AORTIC DISEASE FROZEN ELEPHANT TRUNK USING THE NEW E-VITA OPEN PLUS NEO (JOTEC R), AORTIC VALVE REPLACEMENT, MITRAL VALVE ANULOPLASTY, LEFT SUBCLAVIAN REVASCULARIZATION USING LEFT MAMMARY ARTERY

Clinical Summery

  • 1st February 2017, underwent an ascending aorta replacement, debranching of the Innominate artery and left common carotid artery for the acute aortic dissection
  • The patient presented pseudoaneurysm at level of aortic root, a residual dissection of the aortic arch and of the descending thoracic aorta and a moderate-severe aortic and mitral valve insufficiency
  • Depression of LV function

Surgical Tecnique

  • Aortic Valve Replacement with Stentless biological prosthesis Medtronic Freestyle n 25
  • Mitral Annuloplasty using Memo 4D n 28
  • Ascending aorta and aortic arch replacement with debranching of the Innominate artery and left common carotid artery
  • Frozen Elephant Trunk using E-vita Open plus NEO n 26
  • Unfavorable anatomy for LSA revascularization
  • Left subclavian artery revascularization using Left Mammary Artery

Endoluminal leiomyomatosis of the lower vena cava with extension to the right atrium

We present a case of a 57-year-old patient who underwent total abdominal hysterectomy plus right salpingoophorectomy in 2018, subsequently performed diagnostic images showing an injury that occupies the lumen of the inferior vena cava and extends from the right iliac vein to the atrium; initially percutaneous extraction is attempted, which is failed, which is why the patient is scheduled for open surgery (laparotomy) in conjunction with the department of hepato-biliary and cardiovascular surgery; in the operating room, it is approached by incision of Mercedes Benz, performing disinsertion and hepatic mobilization exposing the inferior vena cava, the same is incised and the tumor mass is betrayed until the lesion is completely removed.
