Revista Brasileira de Cirurgia Cardiovascular , 2002,
Abstract: We hereby present a technical modification for mitral-aortic annular enlargement. The mitral valve is replaced through the retro-septal approach, avoiding patches for left atrial roof closure. We report a mitral-aortic valve replacement in a patient whose original annuli would preclude adequate prostheses. The simultaneous annular enlargement may be necessary for avoiding patient-prosthesis mismatch and for reconstructing destroyed mitral and aortic annuli. The technique may minimize the risk of bleeding and of paravalvular leakage, using an approach well known to cardiac surgeons.

Abstract: The exploration of ostriches aims at trading meat, feathers, leather and grease. The digestive system is intimately related to productivity, and the celiac artery is amongst the major vessels responsible for its nutrition. The artery′s origin and distribution was studied here. In 30 specimens, the left ischiatic artery was cannulated for the injection of a blood vessels marker solution and then fixed in formalin solution 10% via deep intramuscular, subcutaneous and intracavitary applications. We concluded that this artery originated from the descending aorta, its first branch is ventral and it headed for the right side sending branches to: esophagus, proventriculus, ventriculus, spleen, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, duodenum, ileum, left and right cecum.

Abstract: background: optimization of the saphenous vein for myocardial revascularization. objective: to present the no-touch technique of the saphenous vein preparation. this technique consists of harvesting the vein with a pedicle of surrounding tissue, which protects the vein from spasms, obviating the need for distension. methods: a prospective, randomized study with 156 patients who underwent artery bypass grafting was performed comparing three saphenous vein harvesting techniques: conventional, intermediate, and no-touch. a morphological study of the endothelium was carried out using scanning microscopy. an angiographic assessment of the vein graft patency was performed at a mean follow-up time of 18 months. also, an immunohistochemical assessment was carried out to identify the endothelial enzyme nitric oxide synthase (enos) in the vein wall results: the preservation of the endothelial cell integrity was greater in the no-touch technique than in the other procedures. at angiographic follow-up, the patency for the no-touch group was 95.4%, 88.9% for the grafts of the conventional technique group, and 86.2% for the grafts performed in the intermediate technique group. the immunohistochemical assessment revealed enos in all three layers of the vein wall in the no-touch group and reduction of this enzyme in the conventional group. conclusion: the endothelial integrity and enos activity were better preserved when using the no-touch technique for vein graft harvesting. the mechanical protection provided by the cushion of surrounding tissue in the no-touch group, the vasorelaxation and thromboresistant activities of nitric oxide may be responsible for the reduction of vasospasms and improved patency rate.
