Comments: With lowering surgical risk of prophylactic root replacement, the threshold for intervention has reduced progressively over 30 years to 4.5 cm and so an increasing number of patients who are not destined to have a dissection are now having root replacement. Three forms of Elective root replacement with improved life expectancy in Marfan syndrome are now available:

  1. Total root replacement (TRR) with a valved conduit; with mechanical valve the thromboembolic and bleeding risks persists.
  2. Valve sparing root replacement (VSRR); there is freedom from anticoagulation and attendant risks of bleeding but reoperation for aortic regurgitation runs at 1.3% per annum.
  3. Personalised external aortic root support (PEARS) with a macroporous mesh sleeve; this approach conserves the aortic root anatomy and optimises the chance of maintaining valve function but average follow-up is under 5 years and so the long-term results are yet to be determined.

Favourable mid-term outcome after heart transplantation for late Fontan failure

Favourable mid-term outcome after heart transplantation for late Fontan failure.

Comments: The authors studied 61 OHT for failing Fontan in 20 years. OHT is an excellent option for late FF with impaired ventricular function. Previous Fontan conversion does not jeopardize subsequent OHT. Early FF is the most powerful predictor of 5-year mortality after OHT. This finding underlines the magnitude of the decision-making process at the time of Fontan completion, since rescue OHT after early FF seems unwarranted. PLE improves in the majority of patients after OHT, but remains an independent predictor of mortality, mainly for the exposure to early infection hazard.

Comments: Despite low hospital risk and satisfactory late survival, paediatric Ross operation bears substantial valve-related morbidity in the first two decades. Contrary to expectation, with the advent of percutaneous valves, autograft reoperation is more common than homograft.
