Interesting article given how often we feel beholden to Ratings Systems.... shows that there are significant limitations to these evaluations.

I do not like the hybrid devices, limits the ability to tailor to different pathology. VSARR: 30mm Gelweave Valsalva Graft Total Arch: 26mm Gelweave 4-arm Graft FET: 26mmx100mm Gore CTAG x 2 (needed 2 to cover large fen in mid thoracic)

Agree with not doing anything is waiting for a completed RCA infarct. Patient will survive but will struggle. It is a very good lesson for surgeons and interventionalist.

Truth be told I can almost guarantee there were signs of RV dysfxn before they left the OR... multiple inotropes, IABP, or mechanical support. RCA should have been bypassed before they left the OR which can be done quickly on pump, without arrest.

Well I would be careful to extrapolate from this case. Redo CABG is a robust procedure will durable long term data. What you are describing here is an acute RV infarct from an iatrogenic injury/technical failure at the time of surgery.

Yikes!!!! Rough case. Likely RCA dissection existed at the time of implantation, late presentation due to a dynamic flap obstruction.... redoing RCA button is not simple. Requires redo pump run and arrest which is bad for struggling RV.... I would ask for stent quickly!!

Yikes this is a rough scenario. How long after the original operation is this occurring? As for balloon expandable Vs self expanding I would also defer to a a vascular surgeon. It looks you should be able to get away without protecting LIMA. thoughts?

Agree w/ clearly a clip placed on a side branch of LIMA. Often warning signs in the OR, need to have a high suspicion for conduit issues, ✅ flow prior to anastomosis, EKG changes with CPB weaning, RWMA on TEE, and low threshold for FlowProbe use.

Correct, usually the visualization of the true lumen is very good. You just need to make sure you remember the anatomy from the preop CTA. If you are concerned about getting into the true lumen, you can place a wire from the groin preop and confirm with IVUS.

Agree, but can learn from lessons of the past. We should respect implanters comfort level and the published data. Many valves are no longer used because of their implant difficultly and/or early failure (Mitraflow, 3F, Mosaic). And the valve companies know this!

Agree. This was a late presentation of Type A, had a large distal arch tear. If no arch tear, less inclined to FET. I’ve been a little more aggressive with debranching and FET, as long as it can be done efficiently. Should not waste CPB time. Depends on what is needed at root too

Thanks hopefully it helps some people change their practice!
