  • Anesthetic Challenges in Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery

    • Authors: Balasubramanyam; Uma, Kapoor, Poonam Malhotra
      Abstract: The transition of cardiac surgery away from the traditional sternotomy approach toward more minimally invasive strategies continues to evolve over time. The first minimally invasive cardiac surgery was performed in 2005 in New York by a team led by Dr. Joseph T. McGinn. Anesthesiologists play in a key role in facilitating optimal outcomes in such procedures. Perioperative management of these patients poses specific challenges to the anesthesia team. The anesthesiologist must be skilled in numerous subspecialty skillsets including regional anesthesia and analgesia techniques, and elements of thoracic anesthesia practice, in particular one-lung ventilation (OLV), cardiac anesthesia, and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE).

  • Utility of Platelet Function Tests: A Recent Review Round Up

    • Authors: Sharan; Sandeep, Gandhi, Ajay, Kapoor, Poonam Malhotra
      Abstract: Patients undergoing cardiac surgery are at risk of excessive bleeding and associated complications. Excessive bleeding during and after cardiac surgery has an incidence of ~20%. Massive bleeding and subsequent requirement for blood product administration and mediastinal re-exploration is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Postoperative, nonsurgical bleeding in cardiac surgical patients is often multifactorial. Platelet dysfunction, excessive fibrinolysis, hypothermia, preoperative anemia, and deficiency of coagulation factors or their dilution are all suggested etiologies of postoperative bleeding. Among these, the most important is thought to be platelet dysfunction, which occurs as a result of the interplay of acquired and pharmacologically induced factors. Patients suffering from coronary artery disease are usually advised to stop antiplatelet medication a few days prior to coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) to reduce the incidence of postoperative bleeding. However, patients who are still on antiplatelet drugs are at an increased risk of postoperative bleeding. Currently, the transfusion of blood and blood components to manage postoperative bleeding after CABG remains largely empirical, with considerable variation among institutions. Algorithm-based hemostatic therapy has been shown to be superior to empiric hemostatic therapy that is based on clinical judgment. Hence, there is a need to have objective tests to demonstrate platelet dysfunction before platelet transfusion. Several devices of platelet function tests have been reported in clinical studies to evaluate platelet dysfunction and quantify the need for antiplatelet therapy

  • Is TEE a Game Changer in Aortic Prosthetic Paravalvular Leak'

    • Authors: Das; Devishree, Sehgal, Lakshya, karanjkar, Ameya, Sharan, Sandeep, Kapoor, Poonam Malhotra
      Abstract: Valve prosthesis have played an important role in the management of patients with valvular heart disease. However, the prosthetic heart valves used are not without complications. Almost all prosthetic heart valves are obstructive compared with native valves and associated with physiological washing jets. Because of shielding and artifacts it is very difficult to assess the prosthetic valve with TTE. Multiple thrombi and aortomitral continuity detection is cumbersome by TTE. Multiple angulations and off axis view in TEE help not only to characterize the prosthetic heart valve but also gives a three-dimensional surgical view to aid in reaching a diagnosis.

  • Severe Subglottic Tracheal Stenosis Dictates Intercontinental Transfer of
           a 2-Year-Old Child with Tracheostomy Tube In Situ

    • Authors: Sahu; Manoj Kumar, Chalattil, Bipin, Karanjkar, Ameya, Singh, Sarvesh Pal, Rajashekar, Palleti, Devagouru, V., Saxena, Anita, Choudhary, Shiv
      Abstract: Atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD) is the most common congenital cardiac anomaly associated with Down’s syndrome. Children with AVSD develop pulmonary arterial hypertension and often require extensive therapy with pulmonary vasodilators in the postoperative period. The postoperative management is complicated by prolonged mechanical ventilation through endotracheal tube or tracheostomy tube. This artificial airway may trigger various airway complications including subglottic tracheal stenosis. The incidence and severity of subglottic tracheal stenosis is high in children with congenital syndromes. Inability to extubate or decannulate trachea and rapid respiratory compromise while attempting to do so directs toward a diagnosis of subglottic tracheal stenosis. The following case report discusses a 2–year-old boy from Nigeria who was discharged with tracheostomy tube in situ due to severe subglottic tracheal stenosis and surgical tracheoplasty could not be done at his present age. The implications of prolonged tracheostomy tube in situ and the hazards thereof during transfer of the child are being described.

  • A Prospective Randomized Clinical Trial of Efficacy of Algorithm-Based
           Point of Care Guided Hemostatic Therapy in Cyanotic Congenital Heart
           Disease Surgical Patients

    • Authors: Karanjkar; Ameya, Kapoor, Poonam Malhotra, Sharan, Sandeep, Bhardwaj, Vandana, Malik, Vishwas, Hasija, Suruchi, Choudhury, Arindam, Chowdhury, Ujjwal Kumar, Rajashekar, P.
      Abstract: Objective Point of care (POC) testing-based algorithm-guided hemostatic therapy has been used in adult as well as pediatric cardiac surgical patients to administer blood components. The authors hypothesized that implementation of POC-based algorithm in pediatric cyanotic congenital surgical patients would reduce the exposure to blood component therapy and improve the clinical outcome.Design Prospective randomized control trial.Setting Single-center academic institute.Participants One hundred seventy pediatric congenital cyanotic surgical patients.Intervention Implementation of POC and conventional tests-based algorithms.Measurements and Main Results Algorithm-based blood component therapy was administered in each group. There were no group differences regarding the demographic, clinical, and laboratory characteristics. Amount of packed red blood cells (PRBCs), fresh frozen plasma (FFP), platelets, and cryoprecipitate (primary outcomes) administered was significantly lower in POC group than that in the conventional group (p < 0.001). Among the secondary outcomes, the chest drain output at 6, 12, and 24 hours and number of re-explorations was comparable among both the groups. The duration of mechanical ventilation, duration of intensive care unit (ICU) stay, and hospital stay was significantly short in POC group (p = 0.008,

  • Vitamin D Deficiency and Its Response to Supplementation as “Stoss
           Therapy” in Children with Cyanotic Congenital Heart Disease Undergoing
           Open Heart Surgery

    • Authors: Sahu; Manoj Kumar, Bipin, Chalattil, Niraghatam, Harsha Vardhan, Karanjkar, Ameya, Singh, Sarvesh Pal, Rajashekar, Palleti, Ramakrishnan, Lakshmy, Devagourou, V., Upadhyay, Ashish Datt, Choudhary, Shiv Kumar
      Abstract: Background Data from many studies suggest that patients with congenital heart disease are vitamin D (vitD) deficient. Following cardiac surgery as a result of intraoperative institution of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), serum vitD levels become even low. This may affect postoperative convalescence in terms of mechanical ventilation, inotropic support, infection, and so forth. Objective We intended to study the prevalence of vitD deficiency pre and post cardiac surgery and the effect of vitD supplementation (stoss therapy) on postoperative convalescence of the children with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) undergoing intracardiac repair (ICR). Methodology In this randomized controlled trial (RCT), 60 children younger than 18 years with TOF and serum vitD levels < 20ng/dL were randomized into two groups. The study group received vitD supplementation as “stoss therapy” at 10,000 units/kg body weight. All these children underwent ICR with CPB. Demographic data, preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative variables were compared between the study and the control groups. Results Prevalence of severe vitD deficiency was 93.1%. When compared with the control group, study group showed higher serum vitD levels in the immediate preoperative period (p = 0.001), postoperative period following CPB (p = 0.012), and on the first postoperative day (p = 0.003). No statistically significant difference was observed in postoperative mechanical ventilation (p = 0.35), intensive care unit (ICU) stay (p = 0.15), and inotropic duration (p = 0.19). Conclusion Children with TOF are highly deficient of vitD, its level falls further after CPB, and supplementing vitD preoperatively does not influence postoperative recovery pattern. Supplementation of vitD as “stoss therapy” was useful in raising the serum levels before and after cardiac surgery.

  • Anesthesia Concerns in Child with Takayasu Arteritis for Catheterization
           Laboratory Intervention

    • Authors: Irpachi; Kalpana, Sharan, Sandeep, Karanjkar, Ameya, Kapoor, Poonam Malhotra
      Abstract: Takayasu’s arteritis (pulse less disease) is a nonspecific chronic progressive panendarteritis affecting the large- and medium-sized arteries, involving the aorta and its main branches. Anesthesia for patients with Takayasu’s arteritis complicated by severe uncontrolled hypertension, end-organ dysfunction, stenosis of major blood vessels, and difficulties encountered in monitoring arterial blood pressure. We describe the anesthetic concerns of a child with Takayasu’s arteritis and severe hypertension refractory to medical treatment, presented with bilateral renal artery stenosis requiring urgent bilateral percutaneous renal angioplasty.
