Hanada S, Sakamoto H, Swerczek M, Ueda K - BMC Anesthesiol (2016)

Bottom Line: Patients' characteristics, type of surgery, and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) findings were compared between the two groups (success group vs. delay/failure group) to identify variables associated with prolongation of the APT or CSC placement failure.The catheter was successfully placed in 74 of those cases.No variables associated with prolongation of APT or CSC placement failure were identified.

ABSTRACT

Background: Placement of a percutaneous coronary sinus catheter (CSC) by an anesthesiologist for retrograde cardioplegia in minimally invasive cardiac surgery is relatively safe in experienced hands. However, the popularity of its placement remains limited to a small number of centers due to its perceived complexity and potential complications.

Methods: We retrospectively reviewed all cardiac cases performed by one surgeon between December 2009 and April 2012. The reviewed cases were divided into two groups: cardiac cases with percutaneous CSC placement (CSC group) and cardiac cases without placement (control group). Anesthesia preparation time (APT) was then compared between the CSC group and control group. In the CSC group, cases were further divided into two groups. One group contained cases with an APT of less than 90 min (success group) and the other contained cases with an APT greater than or equal to 90 min or cases with CSC placement failure (delay/failure group). Patients' characteristics, type of surgery, and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) findings were compared between the two groups (success group vs. delay/failure group) to identify variables associated with prolongation of the APT or CSC placement failure.

Results: Percutaneous CSC placement was required in 83 cases (CSC group). The catheter was successfully placed in 74 of those cases. We experienced one complication, coronary sinus injury after multiple attempts at placing the catheter. The mean APT was 102 ± 31 min in the CSC group (n = 81) and 42 ± 15 min in the control group (n = 285). We could not identify any variables associated with prolongation of the APT or catheter placement failure.

Conclusions: The success rate of the placement was 89.1 % in our academic center. On average, placing the CSC added approximately one additional hour to the APT. This time is not an accurate representation of true catheter placement time, as it included time for preparation of the CSC, TEE, and fluoroscopy. We experienced one documented complication (coronary sinus injury), which was immediately diagnosed by TEE and fluoroscopy in the operating room. No variables associated with prolongation of APT or CSC placement failure were identified.

Mentions: We retrospectively reviewed 385 open heart surgical cases performed by the attending cardiac surgeon between December 2009 and April 2012 (Fig. 2). Percutaneous CSC placement by the anesthesia team was required in 83 (CSC group) of the 385 cases. The catheter was successfully placed in 74 of those cases, for a success rate of 89.1 %. The percutaneous CSC placement was unsuccessful due to technical difficulty in 9 cases (failure group). The surgery was cancelled after anesthesia induction in two cases in the failure group. One was cancelled due to the complication of CSC placement (coronary sinus injury) after multiple attempts at placing the catheter. The other was cancelled after CSC placement failure because the surgery was not feasible to perform without a CSC. In these two cancelled cases, the anesthesia preparation time (APT) was not able be obtained because the ending time for APT (time for being ready for surgical team) was not recorded in the anesthesia chart.Fig. 2
