Chapter 14 Reoperations After Mustard and Senning Operations J Stark Introduction Senning introduced the physiological repair of transposition of the great arteries in 1958 (Senning 1959) and Mustard published his experience with the atrial switch in 1964 (Mustard 1964) The Mustard operation soon became the operation of choice, and survival rates of over 90% for patients with simple transposition were reported (Waldhausen et al 1971; Lindesmith et al 1973; Ebert et al 1974; Stark et al 1974a) The original concept of the Mustard operation was a two-stage correction A Blalock-Hanlon atrial septectomy enabled a sick infant to survive Because of the fear that the small size of the atria would preclude successful repair, the Mustard operation was often delayed into the second or third year of life The balloon atrial septostomy was introduced by Rashkind and Miller in 1966 (Rashkind and Miller 1966) This considerably improved the survival of infants with transposition of the great arteries However, the improvement achieved by a balloon sept ostomy did not usually last as long as the improvement following a surgical septectomy Attempts, therefore, were made to lower the age for an elective Mustard operation, and soon results which were comparable with or better than the results achieved in older children were reported (Aberdeen 1971; Stark et al 1974a; Bailey et al 1976; Oelert et al 1977; Turley and Ebert 1978) The advantage of early balloon septostomy followed by a Mustard operation during the first year of life rapidly became apparent Reports of complications of the Mustard operation such as SVC obstruction (Mazzei and Mulder 1971; Stark et al 1974b) and pulmonary venous obstruction (Stark et al 1972; Driscoll et al 1977; Oelert et al 1977) led to several technical modifications of the original Mustard operation Although some of these modifications reduced postoperative complications, others actually increased them Brom reintroduced the Senning operation in 1975 (Quagebeur et al 1977); the incidence of complications was reduced significantly but not completely eliminated Today, both the Senning and Mustard operations offer excellent early and good medium-term results Recent reports of the arterial switch operation for neonates with simple transposition (Jatene et al 1975; Castaneda et al 1974; Quaegebeur et al 1986) suggest that the J atene operation may become the operation of choice for this group of patients 188 As is often the case in surgery of infants and young children, some complications may be growth-related, manifesting themselves only years after the original operation For this reason, it is important to follow these patients for many years It is equally iinportant to be familiar with the diagnosis of the complications and with the surgical techniques of their repair, even though the original operation may not be in use any more Problems Mustard Operation The following problems/complications have been reported after the Mustard operation: Systemic venous obstruction (SVe, IVC) Pulmonary venous obstruction Tricuspid valve incompetence Baffle leaks Residual/recurrent ventricular septal defect Residual/recurrent left ventricular outflow tract obstruction Right and left ventricular dysfunction Arrhythmias Some of these complications may not manifest themselves clinically, and are discovered only on routine restudy (isolated obstruction of the sve, small baffle leaks) Other complications may require medical treatment (arrhythmias, ventricular dysfunction) In this chapter we shall concentrate only on those complications which require surgical treatment: systemic and pulmonary venous pathway obstruction, leaks in the baffle, and tricuspid valve incompetence Residual ventricular septal defects and left ventricular outflow tract obstruction are described in detail elsewhere (see pp 165-167 and 285) Systemic Venous Obstruction Incidence and Causes sve obstruction is much more common than obstruction of the IVe Reoperations in Cardiac Surgery Frequently it is the intracardiac part of the sve channel, rather than the sve itself, which becomes narrow In the Ive channel, the obstruction usually occurs between the coronary sinus and the right inferior pulmonary vein Pathway obstruction may have several causes: construction of too narrow a pathway, inadequate resection of the upper margin of the interatrial septum, and thrombosis of the pathway possibly originating on the raw area remaining after resection of the septum Narrowing of the sve at the cannulation site can also occur Late obstruction may be caused by thickening and/or contraction of the baffle The incidence of systemic venous pathway obstruction varies in different series Venables et al (1974) reported 14 cases of sve obstruction among 20 restudied patients; had symptoms Park et al (1983) reviewed 78 patients; 33 had gradients over mmHg Eighteen obstructions were seen; of these, six required reoperation Silverman et al (1981) observed partial and complete obstructions in a series of 18 restudied patients A high incidence of systemic venous pathway obstruction was also reported by Marx et al (1983) Of their 59 survivors of the Mustard operation, 32 had gradients, with 11 requiring reoperation In our experience a higher incidence of sve obstruction was observed in patients in whom a Dacron patch was used for the Mustard repair From the experience of other authors it seems likely that the shape of the baffle is more important than the material Egloff et al (1978) observed systemic venous obstruction in out of 10 patients in whom a "butterflyshaped" patch was used A dumbbell-shaped patch resulted in 25 obstructions among 84 operated patients, while only obstructions were observed among 58 patients with a trousershaped pericardial patch (Stark et al 1974a) Trusler et al (1980) has reported a higher incidence of systemic venous obstruction in the latter part of their series (10/100 compared with 5/105) This was probably due to the less aggressive resection of the superior part of the interatrial septum Avoidance of excessive resection decreased the incidence of arrhythmias in their series, but it increased the incidence of sve obstruction Inferior vena cava obstruction is much less common (Trusler et al 1980 - 3/192 sur- Reoperations After Mustard and Senning Operations vivors) Partial obstruction of both the SVC and IVC is a more serious complication than isolated SVC obstruction The patient may present with a low cardiac output Thrombosis of the IVC has been described after preoperative cardiac catheterisation (Venables et al 1974) IVC obstruction is particularly rare if the coronary sinus is opened widely into the left atrium during the Mustard operation Barratt-Boyes (Kirklin and Barratt-Boyes 1986) has seen only one IVC obstruction among 166 patients (0.6%) Diagnosis Some patients with SVC obstruction are asymptomatic Others develop puffiness of the eyelids or facial oedema, pleural effusion or even chylothorax Tortuous venous collaterals on the chest wall usually develop in the presence of severe obstruction only An increasing head circumference with widening of the cranial sutures and delayed closure of the fontanelles has been described (Silverman et al 1981) Significant IVC obstruction causes hepatomegaly, ascites and leg oedema Protein-losing enteropathy has been described (Moodie et al 1976) SVC obstruction can be diagnosed noninvasively by Doppler ultrasound (Wyse et al 1979) or two-dimensional contrast echocardiography (Silverman et al 1981) Cardiac catheterisation and cineangiography should be performed prior to the operative revision This investigation demonstrates not only the· exact location, length and severity of the obstruction, it also visualises the width of the non-obstructed channel It is important to detect any other residual/recurrent lesions so that these can be repaired at the time of revision of the systemic venous pathways Asymptomatic isolated SVC obstruction does not require treatment All IVC obstructions and symptomatic SVC obstructions are indications for operative revisions Recently, successful balloon dilatation of partially obstructed pathways has been described by the Boston group (Lock et al 1984) We have used balloon dilatation successfully It would seem reasonable, therefore, to attempt to dilate such pathways during the diagnostic cardiac catheterisation Even if a perfect result is not achieved, dilatation can be repeated or surgery considered at a later 189 date In the meantime the symptoms will usually be relieved Pulmonary Venous Obstruction Causes and Incidence Pulmonary venous obstruction is a less frequent but much more serious complication of the Mustard operation It is probably caused by a redundant baffle which becomes adherent to the lateral right atrial wall It occurs more frequently when Dacron is used for the baffle (Driscoll et al 1977; Oelert et al 1977) Occasionally, isolated left pulmonary vein stenosis occurs, but more frequently the stenosis is anterior to the entry of the right pulmonary veins The ostium may be very small and divides the pulmonary venous atrium into a posterior and anterior compartment Driscoll et al (1977) observed pulmonary venous obstruction in of their 25 survivors, Oelert et al (1977) in of 43 survivors Eight among the 48 restudied patients at the Mayo Clinic (Hagler et al 1978) and 10 of 376 survivors in Toronto (Trusler 1984) developed pulmonary venous obstruction We have reported pulmonary venous obstructions among 113 survivors of the Mustard operation (Stark et al 1972) Pulmonary venous obstruction was not seen by BarrattBoyes in patients in whom he used a V-Y atrioplasty (Kirklin and Barratt-Boyes 1986) Likewise, obstruction is rare in the series where the pulmonary venous atrium is enlarged, even when the operation is performed in infancy (Turley and Ebert 1978; Stark et al 1980) Diagnosis Tachypnoea, dyspnoea, cough, fatigue and decreasing exercise tolerance are the common symptoms Mild cyanosis may be present The condition may be wrongly diagnosed as asthma or pneumonia (Driscoll et al 1977) Pulmonary venous congestion or interstitial pulmonary oedema is seen on the chest radiograph The diagnosis of pulmonary venous obstruction may be made by twodimensional echocardiography It is confirmed by cardiac catheterisation; the catheter has to be passed retrogradely through the right ventricle and the tricuspid valve across the stenotic area into the pulmonary veins On angiocardiography ,(direct or pulmonary artery 190 injection) narrowing is best seen in the lateral projection Urgent reoperation is indicated for all patients with pulmonary venous pathway obstruction Recently we have successfully used balloon dilatation of this obstruction The balloon was passed retrogradely through the aortic valve, right ventricle and tricuspid valve into the pulmonary venous atrium and through the stenotic area Leaks in the Baffle A significant baffle leak is rare Trusler et al (1980) reported 12 in his series of 60 recatheterised patients (20% ), but only required reoperation Park et al (1983) described small baffle leaks in 22 (25%) patients The leak was detected by oximetry in four, while in 18 it was visualised only by cineangiography None of their patients required surgery Indications for surgery would be similar to those for atrial septal defect with a left-to-right shunt If the SVC or IVC pathways are also obstructed, a baffle leak above the site of obstruction may cause considerable right-toleft shunting This is repaired at the time of the relief of the pathway obstruction Tricuspid Valve Incompetence Causes and Incidence Mild to moderate tricuspid valve incompetence can be seen in some patients before the Mustard operation (Tynan et al 1972) The abnormalities of the tricuspid valve are more common in patients with TGA and VSD Huhta et al (1982) has reviewed 121 autopsy specimens with TGA and VSD and found structural abnormalities of the tricuspid valve in 38 (31%) Valve dysplasia, straddling, double orifice, accessory tricuspid valve tissue and abnormal chordal attachment were observed The reported incidence of tricuspid valve incompetence after the Mustard operation varies It is speculated that the tricuspid valve can be injured when the baffle is sutured close to the tricuspid valve annulus or when the VSD is repaired through the tricuspid valve We have seen the tricuspid valve and/or the chordae become adherent to the VSD patch Incom- Reoperations in Cardiac Surgery petence can also develop secondary to right ventricular dysfunction/failure or to arrhythmias Takahashi et al (1977) and Marx et al (1983) did not see serious tricuspid valve incompetence in respective series of 110 and 59 survivors of the Mustard operation Trusler et al (1980) has reported 10 cases of mild tricuspid incompetence among 192 survivors in Toronto In our series of 563 Mustard operations, tricuspid valve replacement was performed in patients The incidence of serious tricuspid incompetence is higher in patients operated on for TGA and VSD Hagler et al (1979) reported a high incidence of this complication from the Mayo Clinic They found mild and moderate tricuspid valve incompetences among 33 restudied asymptomatic patients and mild to moderate and severe among 16 symptomatic patients Four out of 17 patients operated for TGA and VSD by Barratt-Boyes had moderate to severe incompetence (Kirklin and BarrattBoyes 1986) In Park's series, 6/24 patients with TGA and VSD developed incompetence; required surgery (Park et al 1983) Diagnosis The patients present with increasing breathlessness, a cough and fatigue A systolic murmur is heard along the right sternal border The chest radiograph will show cardiomegaly, pulmonary venous congestion and later pulmonary oedema The tricuspid valve is best assessed by crosssectional echocardiography Anomalies, such as straddling, overriding and prolapse, are usually well demonstrated Doppler echocardiography detects a regurgitant jet; the degree of regurgitation can be estimated Cardiac catheterisation and angiography should exclude additional residual/recurrent lesions and assess the right ventricular function Mild to moderate tricuspid valve incompetence is often tolerated; if severe, an operation is indicated Tricuspid valve incompetence secondary to right ventricular dysfunction may be considered for an alternative treatment Mee (1986) has suggested that the pulmonary artery be banded unless the left ventricular pressure is considerably elevated After this preliminary banding, the Mustard operation is changed into an arterial repair (arterial switch) (see Chap 16, p 217) 191 Reoperations After Mustard and Senning Operations Residual!Recurrent VSD ResiduaVrecurrent VSD can occur, as it does after VSD repair in other anomalies The diagnosis and treatment is described in Chapter 12 (see p 161) Residual!Recurrent Left Ventricular Outflow Tract Obstruction It is often difficult to relieve left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO) at the time of the Mustard operation This is particularly so If the Mustard operation is performed during the first 3-6 months of life L VOTO is often ~ell tolerated in patients whose LV pressure IS less than systemic and in whom the pulmonary artery pressure is close to normal Under such circumstances we not attempt to relieve LVOTO; the obstruction rarely progresses (Park et al 1983) We have serially recatheterised several patients over a period of 15 years· the gradient remained more or less the same: In only a few patients, the obstruction develops late after the operation, or, if present originally, progresses The diagnosis of L VOTO is made by crosssectional echocardiography, cardiac catheterisation and angiography Detailed assessment of ~h~ anatomy of the obstruction and its severity is Important before reoperation is indicated An attempt should be made to distinguish obstruction which could be relieved at a late operation (valvar stenosis, subvalvar membrane or aneurysm of the membranous part of the interventricular septum) from obstruction which must be bypassed (long fibromuscular tunnel or abnormal attachment of the mitral valve) ~eoperation is indicated in symptomatic patients whose LV pressure is at systemic level and in asymptomatic patients with suprasystemic LV pressure Ventricular Dysfunction Right ventricular (RV) function may be reduced after the Mustard operation; impairment of the LV function is less common The cause of dysfunction is not clear; it has been suggested that the morphological right ventricle is not capable of functioning normally as a systemic ventricle Ventricular dysfunction is more common in patients in whom the VSD was ~losed in.addition to the Mustard operation, particularly 10 those in whom the VSD was closed through a right ventriculotomy (Park et al 1983) Ventricular function after the Mustard operation was studied by measurement of RV and LV ejection fraction and RV and LV enddiastolic volume using standard or radionuclide angiocardiography (Graham et al 1975· Hurwitz et al 1985) Some have performed these studies on patients both at rest and during exercise (Murphy et al 1983; Ramsay et al 1984) Hagler et al (1979) has studied 37 as~mptomatic patients after the Mustard operation The RV ejection fraction calculated for this group of patients was found to be significantly below normal, and RV end-diastolic volume was significantly increased LV ~u~ction was relatively well preserved A high IOcid~nce of RV dysfunction at rest and during exercise was also demonstrated in a group of 26 asymptomatic patients studied by Murphy et al (1983) In our group, Weller has shown a statistically significant (p=O.OI) reduction in maximal working capacity in a group of 45 asymptomatic patients studied 5-12 years after the ~ustard operation (Stark et al 1980) Despite the decreased exercise tolerance all ' our patients were asymptomatic and were leading a normal life The same observation has been made by other authors (Mathews et al 1983; Ramsay et al 1984) The reports of RV dysfunction have prompted the exploration of alternative techniques of ~orrec~i.on for TGA, especially techniques which utIhse the left ventricle as a systemic ventricle Mee (1986) has demonstrated recently that some patients with impaired RV function following a Mustard operation can be treated by pulmonary artery banding followed by an arterial switch operation (see Chap 16, p 220) Rhythm Disturbances Serious arrhythmias (atrial fibrillation or flutter, atrioventricular dissociation) were seen more frequently after operations performed in 192 earlier years (Breckenridge et al 1972; EI Said et al 1972; Ebert et al 1974; Beerman et al 1983; Hayes et al 1986) It is not clear why the incidence of reported rhythm disturbances has decreased considerably in recent years (Turley et al 1978; Ullal et al 1979; Trusler et al 1980; Deanfield et al 1989) Possibly a better knowledge of the exact position of the sinus node, sinus node artery and atrioventricular node has enabled surgeons to protect these structures better during the Mustard operation Ebert et al (1974) have reported a higher incidence of arrhythmias in patients who had the coronary sinus cut open; however, this was not confirmed by Clarkson et al (1976) Fewer arrhythmias were seen in patients in whom a less extensive resection of the superior part of the interatrial septum was carried out (Trusler et al 1980) The incidence of post Mustard arrhythmias varies in reported series Southall et al (1980) have pointed out that some arrhythmias may be detected on Holter monitoring even before the Mustard operation Our prospective study (Deanfield et al 1989) did not confirm this finding Changes of P wave amplitude and contour are seen in almost all patients after the Mustard operation (EI Said et al 1972) Atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter and atrioventricular dissociation occurred frequently in earlier series (Breckenridge et al 1972; Ebert et al 1974); fortunately, the current incidence of these is very low Sick sinus syndrome (sinus bradycardia with sinus arrest and junctional escape) was the predominant arrhythmia in the experience of Hayes et al (1986) Junctional rhythm does not usually cause any problems Episodes of supraventricular tachycardia are more serious; they occur in a small percentage of patients (Hayes et al 1986) Some arrhythmias may only become "unmasked" during maximal exercise testing (Mathews et al 1983) Late deaths have been described in several series after the Mustard operation Some of these may possibly have been caused by arrhythmias (Aberdeen 1971; Lewis et al 1977; Hayes et al 1986) Patients discharged from hospital in sinus rhythm may lose this rhythm later At Green Lane Hospital, Auckland, 72% of patients were in sinus rhythm year after the Mustard operation This number decreased to 56% at Reoperations in Cardiac Surgery years and 50% at 10 years (Kirklin and Barratt-Boyes 1986) In our postoperative study (Deanfield et al 1989), we have followed patients with 24-h Holter monitoring before and after the operation All were in sinus rhythm before the operation and 91 % at discharge from the hospital The incidence of stable sinus rhythm decreased to 83% at 1-3 years and 66% at 6-8 years Benign arrhythmias not require treatment Supraventricular tachycardia is treated medically However, it may be resistant to several drugs Some patients with bradyarrhythmias require insertion of a pacemaker Senning Operation The Senning operation was first performed in 1958, but it was the Mustard operation which became the operation of choice soon after its introduction in 1964 There is a possible explanation why the Mustard operation was favoured The mortality of the Senning operation was high in early reports (Kirklin et al 1961) Today we know that the high mortality was due to the selection of the patients rather than to the operative technique There were several infants and young children with TGA and VSD in Kirklin's series; and some of these had pulmonary vascular obstructive disease In contrast, in Toronto, many patients with simple transposition were well palliated by a Blalock-Hanlon septectomy These children were stable and in a good condition in their second, third or fourth year of life - excellent candidates for intra-atrial repair Brom reintroduced the Senning operation in 1975 (Quaegebeur et al 1977), and since then it has become the intra-atrial repair of choice for most cardiac centres The idea of reviving the Senning operation was an attempt to reduce obstructive complications and arrhythmias We shall briefly review here the complications seen after the Senning operation In principle the complications are similar to those seen after the Mustard operation but are much less frequent Reoperations After Mustard and Senning Operations 193 Systemic Venous Obstruction Baffle Leaks In several series, sve obstruction was not detected after the Senning operation (Parenzan et al 1978; Quaegebeur et al 1977; Bender et al 1980) Two sve obstructions required reoperation in the early experience at Birmingham (Kirklin and Barratt-Boyes 1986) The Boston group (Marx et al 1983) have reported obstructions in a group of 54 survivors of the Senning operation To our knowledge, IVe obstruction was not reported after the Senning operation In our series of 196 Senning operations patient required reoperation for sve obstruction The obstruction was due to technical error, and reoperation was performed within 24 h after surgery The sve and IVe orifices were closer together than normal Both sve and IVe pressures were elevated after surgery At reoperation we found that the area under the septum was narrow, thus presenting obstruction to flow from both the sve and IVe The diagnosis and indications for reoperation are identical to those after the Mustard operation Baffle leaks are uncommon after the Senning operation This has been our experience as well as that of other authors Pulmonary Venous Obstruction Pulmonary venous obstruction is rare after the Senning operation We believe that this complication could be avoided if the technique of Brom (Quaegebeur et al 1977) is used for the Senning operation To our knowledge, pulmonary venous obstruction only occurred in patients in whom the pulmonary venous atrium was enlarged with a patch: three patients in the initial Birmingham experience and six patients in the Boston series (Pacifico 1979; Marx et al 1983) We have seen this complication in patient among 196 consecutive Senning operations; reoperation to correct the technical error was performed within 24 h of the original operation Pulmonary venous obstruction did not occur in the series reported by Parenzan et al (1978), Quaegebeur et al (1977) and Bender et al (1980) No case of pulmonary venous obstruction was seen in the Green Lane Hospital series and in the recent (1977-1984) Birmingham series (Kirklin and Barratt-Boyes 1986) The diagnosis and the indications for reoperation are identical to those after the Mustard operation Tricuspid Valve Incompetence Tricuspid valve incompetence can occur after the Senning operation Penkoske et al (1983) has reported three mild and three severe tricuspid valve incompetences in 39 survivors of the Senning operation and VSD closure Severe incompetence required tricuspid valve replacement in three patients The reason why tricuspid valve incompetence has been reported less frequently after the Senning operation than after the Mustard operation is probably due to the fact that the Senning operations have been performed more recently, when perhaps the techniques of bypass and myocardial protection have been improved The lower incidence of arrhythmias after recent atrial repairs may also be attributed to this fact Residual/Recurrent VSD and LVOTO There are no special differences between the diagnosis and treatment of residual/recurrent VSD or LVOTO after the Senning operation and after the Mustard operation Ventricular Function Ventricular function has not,as yet, been extensively studied after the Senning operation However, Bender et al (1980) did not show any difference in their group of Mustards and Sennings Arrhythmias Parenzan et al (1978) have reported a high incidence of sinus rhythm soon after the Senning operation We have carried out a prospective study (Deanfield et al 1989), assessing patients who underwent a Mustard or Senning operation The standard electrocar- 194 Reoperations in Cardiac Surgery diogram and 24-h Holter monitoring was performed before the operation, after the operation prior to discharge from the hospital, at year and at years The study showed a low incidence of active arrhythmias However, there was a continuing decrease in the number of patients remaining in a stable sinus rhythm during the follow-up period No statistically significant difference was found between the Mustard and Senning groups Operative Technique Mustard Fig 14.2 The technique of the original operation may influence the development and the incidence of some late complications Therefore, we shall first describe some of the steps of the Mustard operation which we consider important to avoid complications Primary Operation SVC Cannulation The sve is usually cannulated directly through a purse-string suture This suture is placed at least 10 mm above the CORRECT INCORRECT Fig 14.1 sinus node to avoid its injury The purse-string is oblong (Fig 14.1) rather than circular to avoid narrowing of the sve when the pursestring is tied after the sve cannula is removed Alternatively, the purse-string is not tied after decannulation but the partial occlusion clamp is applied on the cava and an incision in the sve is formally closed with a fine polypropylene stitch (Fig 14.2a, b) We favour the technique of an oblong purse-string which is tied after decannulation Shape and Material used for Baffle The shape and the material of the baffle and the technique of its insertion may contribute to the development of obstruction It is important to construct the sve pathway in such a manner that the baffle forms less than 50% of its circumference If at least 50% of the pathway is constructed of the atrial wall, obstruction is unlikely to develop if the patch does not grow, or even if it shrinks (Fig 14.3) In our early experience both the material used for the baffle and the shape of the baffle played an important role (Stark et al 1980) We found that a redundant , thin Dacron patch had a tendency to fold upon itself (Fig 14.4a) Apposition of platelets and fibrin and subsequent fibrosis of this tissue led to severe thickening of the patch (Fig 14.4b, c) Brom has suggested cutting the patch into a "trouser shape" (Quagebeur and Brom 1978) He constructed the patch on the basis of measurements of sve and IVe circumference 195 Reoperations After Mustard and Senning Ope rations is to suture the patch away from the SVC and IVC orifices and to pull the atrium onto the patch (Kirklin and Barratt-Boyes 1986) ' -Baffle Thrombosis Thrombosis may cause SVC pathway obstruction, especially if the lumen was already compromised by a faulty operative technique Insertion of several central venous cannulae into the internal jugular vein may be another cause This may be of particular importance in young infants Infusion of platelets and/or hypertonic solutions through these lines may be another contributing factor It is useful to evaluate the adequacy of the SVC pathway soon after the operation by Doppler echocardiography or by an injection of contrast media through an internal jugular Fig 14.3 line and performing a chest radiograph at the same time Both these techniques are useful (distances E-D and D-F in Fig 14.5a) and the and can be easily performed in the intensive distance between the edge of the intra-atrial care unit The diagnosis of even mild SVC septum and the pulmonary veins (C-D in Fig pathway narrowing would alert us to avoid 14.5a) Subsequently, good results have been infusions of hypertonic solutions Under such achieved with this patch irrespective of whether circumstances, it may be safer to remove the it was tailored from Dacron or pericardium jugular vein cannula and place it elsewhere The Toronto group has always used pericardium The original large quadrangular patch Inadequate Resection of Intra-atrial Sepof the Mustard operation has been only slightly tum Inadequate resection of the intra-atrial modified (Trusler et al 1980) (Fig 14.5b) septum may leave a ridge of tissue which Barratt-Boyes uses a small patch His concept then causes turbulence and contributes to the A a b a c B Fig 14.4 Fig 14.5 Reoperations in Cardiac Surgery 196 Fig 14.6 development of obstruction On the other hand, too extensive resection may damage the sinus node artery and lead to arrhythmias (Trusler et al 1980) If one avoids an extensive resection, it is possible to use the superior part of the atrial septum as a flap, which is then sutured to the baffle (Turley and Ebert 1978) This step is illustrated in Fig 14.6 manoeuvre may cause arrhythmias, it has not been confirmed by others (Clarkson et al 1976) We have not cut the coronary sinus routinely; however, we find the technique very useful in children in whom the distance between the SYC and IYC orifices is short The suture line from the left to the right pulmonary veins should diverge to avoid pulmonary venous obstruction This may, on the other hand, compromise the IYC pathway; therefore , under such circumstances we prefer to open the coronary sinus deep into the left atrium (Fig 14.7) It is important to open the coronary sinus with one cut Repeated, short cuts may catch the fold in the atrial wall and cut outside the heart This does not cause problems if recognised in time It is very difficult to control the bleeding from the posterior part of the left atrium without the aid of cardiopulmonary bypass Therefore, we routinely lift the heart up before discontinuing perfusion to check for any damage to this area Width of the Baffle Too redundant a baffle may form adhesions with the lateral atrial wall and cause pulmonary venous obstruction We assess the width of the patch during insertion When the suture line around the left pulmonary Coronary Sinus Cut-back Opening the cor- veins and towards the right upper and lower onary sinus deep into the left atrium ensures pulmonary veins has been completed we hold a wide IYC pathway Although it has been the opposite edge of the patch with forceps suggested (Ebert et al 1974) that this and keep it close to the cut edge of the atrial septum A curved instrument then pushes the patch from behind towards the lateral atrial wall (Fig 14.8) If the patch reaches the atrial wall it is too redundant and should be trimmed Coronary sinus Placement of the Baffle The correct placement of the baffle is important to avoid either systemic or pulmonary venous obstruction Concern about one of these complications may cause the other one The suture line from the left pulmonary veins should diverge upwards between the SYC and right pulmonary vein Inferiorly, the suture line runs from the left pulmonary veins to between the right lower pulmonary vein and the orifice of the lYe Figure 14.9 illustrates the correct and incorrect placement of a baffle Fig 14.7 Incision in the Right Atrium and Enlargement of the Pulmonary Venous Atrium Various 375 Reoperations for Thoracic and Thoracoabdominal An eurysms Fig 26 24 Fig 26.23 clamp injury to the thin, friable aortic walls and to allow maximal distal resection and replacement When the transverse arch segment harbours the site of origin, it is routinely replaced Nevertheless, in acute dissection, the false lumen is obliterated as the aortic walls are reinforced between two circumferentially placed Teflon felt strips, allowing the distal anastomosis to direct flow into the true lumen (Fig 26.25a-c) In chronic dissection cases in which only ascending aortic reconstruction is required, the aortic tissues are often infiltrated with fibrous tissue and can be safely clamped In chronic dissection, the rigidity of the inner wall between the true and false lumen and contraction of the true lumen determine whether or not the dissected aortic walls can be reapproximated When reapproximation of the aortic walls is not possible , removal of a generous portion of the inner septum distally is undertaken (Fig 26.25b) to avoid obstruction of either lumen and distal perfusion of both A similar approach is taken with the proximal descending thoracic aorta when the entire transverse arch is replaced for chronic dissection The technique of proximal aortic reconstruction varies with the extent of involvement of the aortic root and the type of aortic disease present In the non-Marfan 's patient, with a competent aortic valve and aortic sinuses of a normal size, the graft replacement extends to just above the coronary artery origins (Fig 26.26) The aorta at this level is transected and Teflon strips are used to reinforce the aortic wall, if thin and friable , prior to end-to-end anastomosis (Fig 26.27a, b) Completion of the repair is shown in Fig 26.28a, b When the aortic valve is incompetent and the sinuses completely normal, separate valve and tube graft replacement is undertaken (Fig 26.29) In all patients with Marfan's

annulus can be accomplished with preservation of a small portion of aortic wall around the coronary artery origins The proximal coronary arteries are mobilised for short distances (Fig 26.30) to allow tension-free direct attachment to the graft using a continuous suture of 3-0 polypropylene after the aortic valve portion of the composite valve graft prosthesis is sutured into place The aortic valve portion of the composite graft is inserted with closely placed pledgetted sutures of 2-0 Ti-Cron, using a horizontal mattress technique with an average of four to six sutures per aortic cusp Tension-free reattachment of the coronary artery origins in composite valve graft replacement is critical in preventing false aneurysm development at this site In aortic root enlargement , the coronary artery origins are displaced distally from the valve annulus and laterally by sinus enlargement; consequently, the Bentall technique (Bentall and DeBona 1968), whereby the graft is approximated to the aortic wall around the coronary artery origins, places their reattachment under tension Mobilisation of the coronary artery origins and direct reattachment 377 Reoperations for Thoracic and Thoracoabdominal Aneurysms eliminates tension and provides access for haemostasis This is achieved by the following technique: the sutures are placed through the preserved aortic wall, surrounding the coronary artery origin rather than through the delicate coronary artery itself, and the suture line is often reinforced with Teflon felt When composite valve graft replacement is performed as described by Bentall, overlapping suture lines can make achieving haemostasis both difficult and dangerous Wrapping the aneurysm wall around the graft can assist in achieving haemostasis; however, bleeding within the perigraft space after control with an aortic wall wrap can initiate the need for a second operation as the suture line leak can result in progressive dilatation of the aneurysmal wrap (Fig 26.31a, b) Total aortic resection down to the valve annulus with an open technique of repair provides access to all suture lines for direct haemostasis and eliminates false aneurysm formation In redo procedures, it is often not possible to resect the aneurysm completely because of scar formation and adherence of surrounding structures, thus not Fig 26.30 a b Fig 26.31 378 Reoperations for Thonicic and Thoracoabdominal Aneurysms Cabrol et a1 (1986) is applicable in many conditions requiring reoperation, both with and without dissection, and has the advantages of less dissection and tension-free repair The presence of proximal or distal coronary artery disease and acute dissection rendering the coronary artery origin unsuitable for anastomosis requires distal coronary artery bypass using reversed segments of autogenous sap~enous vein or internal mammary artery, or both Descending and Thoracoabdominal Aorta Fig 26.32 permitting mobilisation of the coronary artery origins Options under these circumstances include interposition with short segments of Dacron (Fig 26.32a) or saphenous vein (Fig 26.32b) directly to the coronary artery origins or distal coronary artery bypass with saphenous vein (Fig 26.33) Reattachment of coronary artery origins using a short Dacron graft as described by Fig 26.33 The general principles of exposure and graft replacement using the inclusion technique and direct reattachment of appropriate branch vessels are applicable (Crawford 1974; Crawford et al 1978; Crawford and Crawford 1984) Redo posterolateral thoracotomy is used for proximal disease, whereas a thoracoabdominal approach is required for more extensive disease with involvement in the region of the origin of the visceral vessels Simple proximal aortic clamping' with control of its haemodynamic sequelae using pharmacological agents has been the most commonly applied method of aortic control Heparin has not been used in our experience Although reattachment of intercostal and lumbar arteries has been extensively used in an attempt to prevent postoperative neurological deficits in the lower extremities, the comparative analysis of cases involving reattachment of intercostal arteries and those without reattachment has failed to reveal a significant statistical difference (Crawford et al 1986) Redo operation upon the thoracoabdominal aorta requires careful attention to haemostasis We routinely use a cell-saving device designed to collect shed blood from the operative field, wash it, and return the washed red cells to the patient very rapidly, at a rate of unit every Advances in blood banking allowing appropriate component therapy of packed red cells, fresh plasma, cryoprecipitate, platelets and other elements have clearly been of value The risks of descending thoracic and thoracoabdominal aneurysm repair including death, paraplegia and renal failure are not influenced by adjunctive distal perfusion, but rather are 379 Reoperations for Thoracic and Thoracoabdominal Aneurysms Table 26.1 Redo operations prior to November 1984 Ascending aorta Acute dissection Chronic dissection Non-dissection Totals

prospectively applied these techniques in 205 patients These methods were found to be unreliable in predicting and preventing postoperative paraplegia and renal dysfunction and cannot be recommended

the senior author's experience, reoperation upon the ascending and/or aortic arch prior to November 1984 carried an overall survival rate of 78% (36/46) (Table 26.1) The authors' total experience in reoperation upon the ascending aorta and transverse aortic arch consists of 86 patients with a 30-day survival rate of 83% (72 patients) Applying the surgical principles described in this chapter, significant improvement in results has been achieved with 40 patients treated from November 1984 to December 1986: reoperation carried a 30-day survival rate of 90%(36 patients) (Table 26.2) It is noteworthy that all 10 patients (100%) requiring combined ascending aorta and aortic arch replacement who were operated upon for conditions other than acute dissection have survived since 1984,

experience with redo operations upon the descending thoracic and thoracoabdominal aorta has involved 107 patients with 92 early survivors (Table 26.3) Redo operation in 16 patients was limited to the descending thoracic aorta, and in 91 patients it involved the thoracoabdominal aorta Early mortality in each group was only 6% and 15% respectively, comparing favourably with primary procedures in similar aortic segments (Livesay et al 1985; Crawford et al 1986) Descending thoracic aneurysms have been encountered on seven occasions by the senior author in patients originally treated for coarctation Two cases involved anastomotic false aneurysms secondary to the use of arterial silk in the early 1960s These patients were successfully treated by reresection and tube graft replacement Two cases involved later diffuse involvement of the entire descending thoracic aorta in aneurysm formation following coarctation repair by resection and tube graft replacement These patients were also treated by resection and graft replacement Three patients developed aneurysms after patch graft repair of coarctation at 3, 11 and 13 years, and each was successfully treated with aneurysm resection and graft replacement All cases demonstrated diffuse medial degenerative disease on histological examination of aortic wall References Becker HM, Stelter WJ, Kortmann H, Heberer G (1983) Anastomotic
