Last Week’s Hot Topic on Pulmonary Hypertension



Last week’s hot topic on pulmonary hypertension was Pulmonary Hypertension Patients Have Fewer Complications With Minimally Invasive Cardiac Procedure written by Patricia Inacio.

This article focused on patients with pulmonary hypertension (PH) who have a higher risk of complications when they undergo conventional cardiac surgery. A new study reports that if they undergo minimally invasive valve surgery, patients with PH can have a reduced risk of complications along with a decreased recovery period and less time spent in the hospital.

The study, “Aortic and/or mitral valve surgery in patients with pulmonary hypertension performed via a minimally invasive approach,” was published in the Interactive CardioVascular and Thoracic Surgery journal.

According to the results, minimally invasive procedures to aortic or mitral valve surgery in patients with pulmonary hypertension lead to good perioperative outcomes and acceptable hospital lengths of stay. The strategy appears safe and feasible, and represents a possible alternative to median sternotomy.
