Take Home Points:

  • Failing single ventricle physiology presents unique challenges for mechanical circulatory support, especially when ventricular function is preserved but systemic venous pressures are elevated.
  • Applications and limitations of existing device technologies are reviewed and emerging technologies (e.g., cavopulmonary assistance) are discussed.

 

jeremy-herrmannCommentary from Dr. Jeremy Herrmann (Indianapolis), section editor of Congenital Heart Surgery Journal Watch:  As success of palliation for single ventricle palliation has improved over the past nearly 30 years, more patients are confronting the long-term challenges of this physiologic state including heart failure. Accordingly, options other than heart transplantation have historically been limited though there has been recent momentum in applying existing mechanical assistance technologies as well as developing novel technologies. An important consideration of failing single ventricle physiology is the distinction between those patients with ventricular dysfunction and those without. In the former, existing devices designed to augment ventricular function may be useful. However, these devices may have limited applicability for patients with preserved ventricular function but elevated systemic venous pressures.

This paper provides an excellent update of device therapies for patients with failing single ventricle physiology after any stage of palliation. The authors summarize key physiologic concepts and the experience to-date of mechanical circulatory support including pulsatile devices, continuous flow devices, and the total artificial heart. Limitations of existing device therapies for failing Fontan patients without ventricular function are discussed as related to their inability to mitigate elevated systemic venous pressures. Future directions for cavopulmonary assist devices (e.g., the Rodefeld pump) and other evolving technologies are also highlighted.

Take Home Points:

  • Excellent long-term outcomes can be achieved with the Ross aortic valve replacement procedure in pediatric and young adult patients and should be considered a viable option along with other bioprosthetic and mechanical valves.
  • The need for reoperation for pulmonary homografts is greater than for the autograft aortic root, but comparisons across eras with different surgical techniques and implants are difficult.
  • Prospective, multi-institutional studies comparing all options for aortic valve replacement in pediatric and young adult patients are still needed.

 

Commentary from Dr. Jeremy Herrmann (Indianapolis), section editor of Congenital Heart Surgery Journal Watch:  The choice of technique for replacing a stenotic and/or regurgitant native aortic valve in a pediatric or young adult patient can be challenging. Bioprosthetic valves do not require long-term anticoagulation but have very limited durability in younger patients. Mechanical valves are more durable but require anticoagulation. Both bioprosthetic and mechanical valves also may be limited by lack of growth potential. Advantages of the Ross procedure (pulmonary autograft replacement of the aortic valve) include growth potential, avoidance of long-term anticoagulation, and favorable hemodynamics compared to prosthetic valves. However, the Ross procedure involves replacement of two valves and a more technically demanding operation. As a result, the Ross procedure tends to be performed in a minority of congenital surgical programs that perform it with regularity and maintain clinical competence with it.

The group from Leiden University is the latest to offer a report of their long-term institutional experience with the Ross procedure. Over a 22-year period, they performed 105 Ross procedures and 49 Ross-Konno procedures. The median patient ages were 14 years (range, 8-25 years) for the Ross procedure and 1 year (range, 0.25-9 years) for the Ross-Konno procedure. Overall survival was good (and similar to other reports) with 20-year survival rates of 90.7% for the Ross group and 70% for the Ross-Konno group (see Figure). Of the 26 patients (18%) who required reoperation for the autograft, 20 were related to autograft dilatation. As with many other centers, their technique for autograft implantation has evolved to counter long-term aortic root dilation. However, surgical techniques were not compared, though the authors observed no difference between age and time and autograft reoperation. Thirty-one patients (21%) required pulmonary homograft reoperation. For the Ross group, the 5- and 20-year incidence of pulmonary homograft reoperation was 5.8% and 30.5%, respectively. The need for pulmonary homograft replacement was predictably higher in the younger Ross-Konno group with a 15-year incidence of RV-PA conduit replacement of 50.5%. Only four patients in the Ross group developed endocarditis, all with the pulmonary homograft.

The major limitations of this study are its single institutional experience, retrospective nature, and potentially strong selection bias given their preference for the Ross procedure in this patient population. In addition, the lack of comparison with other similarly aged prosthetic aortic valve replacement patients makes it difficult to judge their long-term results. However, their results are consistent with other reports and indicate the Ross procedure is a viable option for younger patients who cannot take or wish to avoid long-term anticoagulation. Future prospective, contemporary comparisons (as with the German Ross Registry) may help to clarify these decisions and facilitate patient counseling.
