Objective:Re-operation (redo) for aortic valve replacement (AVR) can be a surgical challenge and is usually associated with higher risk of complications and mortality. The study aim was to report the results of a multicenter cohort of patients who underwent minimally invasive AVR (MIC-AVR) with a sutureless and rapid-deployment prosthesis in case of cardiac reoperation.Methods:From 2007 to 2017, a total of 3651 patients were collected from the Sutureless and Rapid-Deployment International Registry (SURD-IR). Out of them, 63 patients (mean age 75.3 ± 7.8 years; median Log EuroSCORE 10.1, interquartile range [IQR] 6.9-17.2) who had previously undergone cardiac surgery (58.1% AVR, 8.1% bypass surgery, 33.9% other procedure), underwent MIC-AVR and represented the study population. Preoperative, periprocedural parameters, as well as clinical outcomes, were analyzed for all patients.Results:Surgery was performed via ministernotomy in 43 patients (68.3%) and via anterior right thoracotomy in 20 (31.7%); 31 patients (49.2%) received a sutureless valve and 32 (50.8%) a rapid deployment valve. The mean cross-clamp time was 57.8 ± 23.2 min, cardiopulmonary bypass time was 95 ± 34.3 min, and4 patients (6.3%) required an associated procedure. Neither conversion to full sternotomynor in-hospital deaths occurred. Median intensive care unit stay was 1 day (IQR 1-2.5), median length of stay was 10 days (IQR 8-14). Eleven postoperative events were recorded: ischemic cerebral events in 3 patients, need for pacemaker implantation in 2 patients, bleeding requiring revision in 5, and renal insufficiency requiring dialysis in 1.On echocardiographic evaluation, one patient showed signs of paraprosthetic leak. Conclusions:Redo MIC-AVR with a sutureless and rapid-deployment prosthesisis a safe and feasible strategy, resulting in fast recovery and improved early post-operative outcome with a low complication rate.
