25 UK Procedure Steps Make sternotomy incision (more)
Place heart on cardiopulmonary bypass (more) Add cardioplegic agent (more) Expose and remove aortic valve Size aortic replacement valve (more) Expose and remove pulmonic valve Size pulmonic valve replacement (more) Attach aortic valve and root replacement to heart (more) Expose left coronary artery Expose and trim native aortic root Attach pulmonary homograft (more) Attach coronary arteries to aortic root replacement (more) Attach aortic root replacement to ascending aorta (more) Take heart off cardiopulmonary bypass (more) Close (more) UK Continue to Post-Operative Care Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery

26 Sternotomy incision Make incision along sternal midline using scalpel
Cauterize any bleeding vessels Use sternal saw to cut sternum Apply bone paste to cut edge of sternum Place sterile towels on cut edge of sternum Use retractors to access surgical area Back to Procedure Steps

27 Cardiopulmonary bypass (starting)
Put purse string suture into superior vena cava Thread suture through tourniquet and secure with hemostat Cut vein wall Insert bypass cannula into vein Cinch tourniquet and secure with hemostat Repeat above to inferior vena cava Repeat for aorta Attach retrograde cardioplegia Cross-clamp aorta Connect cannulae to bypass tubing Back to Procedure Steps

28 Cardiopulmonary bypass (removing)
Uncinch tourniquet of superior vena cava Remove cannula while simultaneously tightening purse string sutures Add 6 knots to purse string suture Repeat for inferior vena cava Repeat for aorta Back to Procedure Steps

29 Cardioplegic agent For Antegrade Cardioplegia
Once aortic valve is removed, administer cardioplegic agent at the aortic root Repeat approximately every minutes For Retrograde Cardioplegia use purse string sutures to place retrograde cannula in coronary sinus Cardioplegic agent is administered continuously Remove cannula, close purse strings, tie off suture Antegrade versus Retrograde Considerations Size of anatomy Length of procedure Access to coronary sinus and aortic root Back to Procedure Steps

30 Sizing replacement valves
Replacement valve sizes range from mm These sizes are measured as the external diameter of the prosthetic valve with the sewing ring compressed Use a valve sizing tool (pictured) to get optimal size Match the replacement size to the native valve Error on the large side to get the largest possible diameter for maximal blood flow Check valve function prior to placement Back to Procedure Steps

31 Bentall aortic root replacement
Replacement includes valve and root When removing native aorta/aortic root detach the coronary ostia (opening) from the aorta leaving a small rim of aortic tissue (Note: this is deemed the “button”) Size aortic replacement device (valve and root combination) Suture the device to the aortic annulus (fibrous tissue ring surrounding the opening to the aorta) (more) Cut two holes in the root replacement for the coronary ostia using a thermal cutter or blade Suture the coronary ostia to the root replacement (more) Trim the root replacement to size Suture root replacement to native ascending aorta Back to Procedure Steps

32 Suture: device-annulus
Use pledgetted sutures Run end one of suture through the annulus starting from under the annulus Run end one of suture through device’s sewing ring starting from under the device Repeat with end two so that pledgett is up against underside of annulus Alternate suture colors to allow for easier manipulation and tying of the device to the annulus Push device into the annulus using previously placed suture to guide the device into place Tie sutures in place (animation) Needle Pledgett Annulus Suture Back to Bentall Steps

33 Suture: device-ostia Use a teflon strip for reinforcement
Place ostia within pre-cut opening in an end-to-side manner Use a running stitch to secure ostia to device Back to Bentall Steps

34 Pulmonary homograft Replacement valves can be biological or mechanical
Biological Replacement Valves A homograft, or allograft, comes from a human donor (pictured-in forceps) A xenograft comes from animal tissue Another option for aortic valve replacement is a pulmonary autograft in which the aortic valve is replaced with the patient’s native pulmonary valve Mechanical Replacement Valves Are manmade and come in a variety of designs and materials Biological Versus Mechanical Considerations Biologic valves reduce the risk of associated clots but are not as durable Mechanical valves theoretically will last forever; however, there is an increased risk of clotting on the prostheses which can lead to stroke Back to Procedure Steps

35 Closing Place external pacemaker leads
Check pacemaker leads and pacing Place chest tube drainage cannulae Prepare exposed sternal bone for closure using bone paste and electrocautery Use sternal wires with the attached needle to close the sternum Twist sternal wires together (twist number varies but 3-4 is recommended for optimal strength) Bend exposed metal ends of sternal wire toward sternum Close fascia Close skin Back to Procedure Steps

36 Post-operative care Connect patient to ventilator
Monitor ECG, oxygen saturation, blood pressures, and blood gases Check urinary output and chest tube output Prior to discharge: wean off ventilator, train patient on incentive spirometer, anticoagulation therapy, diet as tolerated, and ambulation

37 Possible complications
Thrombosis Valve malfunction/failure Root replacement malfunction/failure Infection Arrythmia Death
