Minimally invasive and transcatheter techniques in high-risk cardiac surgery patients


Sündermann, Simon H; Scherman, Jacques; Falk, Volkmar (2012). Minimally invasive and transcatheter techniques in high-risk cardiac surgery patients. Interventional Cardiology, 4(2):253-263.

Abstract

Minimally invasive procedures have become pivotal in cardiac surgery, especially for the ever-increasing group of high-risk patients. These procedures are defined by the surgical access and/or the avoidance of cardiopulmonary bypass. Both of these aspects have been shown to be beneficial for patients with an increased perioperative risk. For high-risk patients with coronary artery disease, off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery via various surgical access routes can be performed. For patients with heart valve disease, minimally invasive approaches are routinely used in the clinic. During the last decade, interventional methods to treat aortic and mitral valve disease including transcatheter aortic valve replacement and the MitraClip were developed. These modalities have provided clinicians with the ability to treat patients with very high operative risk that are considered not fit for conventional surgery.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
