The Mount Sinai Hospital Earns Highest Rating for Patient Care by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons

 

The Mount Sinai Hospital has earned a distinguished three-star rating from The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) for its patient care and outcomes in aortic valve replacement (AVR) and in coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). The three-star rating, which denotes the highest category of quality, places The Mount Sinai Hospital among the elite for cardiac surgery in the United States and Canada.

How Mitral Valve Heart Surgery Patients Can Get the Best Results

 

When patients have mitral valve disease, the small flaps that open and close to let oxygen-rich blood flow through the heart do not work as they should. Choosing the right surgeon to fix a leaky mitral valve—which can cause blood to flow backwards into the lungs and often leads to shortness of breath and chest pain—is a critical decision.

 

Now a new study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology reveals that patients who chose surgeons with deep experience in performing this complex procedure had a better chance of living longer and not needing additional procedures to correct the problem.

Busiest Docs Get Best Results With Heart Valve Surgery

 

Patients who have heart valve surgery get better results and are more likely to survive if their surgeon does a lot of the operations, a new study.

 

Researchers from Mount Sinai Health System in New York City studied New York state data on patients who had a type of heart operation called mitral valve surgery between 2002 and 2013.

Mitral Valve Surgery Volume Matters – Study supports having centers of excellence in mitral valve repair

 

Mitral valve prolapse is more likely to be repaired successfully if operators perform the procedure at least 25 times a year, researchers found.

 

Records from a New York State mandatory-reporting cardiac surgery database showed that operators achieved a degenerative mitral valve repair rate of 67% on average. Operators with 10 or fewer cases annually had a mean as low as 48%, whereas surgeons with at least 51 such operations a year boasted a mean of 77%.

Valves Addressed in CHD Sessions

 

“David H. Adams, MD, of Mount Sinai Medical Center discussed resection and nonresection techniques in degenerative valve disease in teenagers and young adults. In a series of videos, he showed a lesion-specific approach to valve reconstruction.

 

"One must be even more precise in younger patients with regard to available tissue and targeted resections in order to maximize leaflet coaptation and a long-term durable result. As many children and young adults are still growing and have small annular size, annuloplasty techniques must be carefully applied - which makes reconstructive procedures even more challenging in this population," Dr. Adams said.”

“Three physicians at Mount Sinai Heart became the first team in the United States to perform a percutaneous implantation of a new device that replaces a diseased aortic heart valve, an advance that provides a viable treatment for patients too elderly or infirm to undergo open heart surgery. The device, called the Medtronic CoreValve® Transcatheter Aortic Valve Prosthesis, treats severe aortic stenosis with a catheter-based technology that does not require an incision in the chest or the use of a heart-lung machine.

 

David H. Adams, MD, Marie-Josée and Henry R. Kravis Professor and Chair of the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery; Samin K. Sharma, MD, Zena and Michael A. Wiener Professor and Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory; and Annapoorna S.

Book Review: Carpentier's Reconstructive Valve Surgery: From Valve Analysis to Valve Reconstruction

 

“In 1968, Dr. Carpentier established a new era in heart valve surgery when he introduced the concept of annular remodeling with prosthetic rings. He later broadened this concept in an effort to treat all types of valve lesions. In this volume, he has joined 2 American colleagues, Drs. David H. Adams and Farzan Filsoufi, in describing a broad compilation of valve disorders and techniques for their repair.”

 

“In addition, the book is enhanced by discussions between Dr. Carpentier and his coauthors at the end of each chapter. Presented in a conversational style, these discussions focus on the nuances of each technique, practical challenges encountered in the operating room, and alternative techniques devised by other surgeons.”

Bernadine Healy, M.D., on Mitral Valves: Repair or Replace?

 

Missing out. The actual number getting repair is closer to 50 percent, and that's unacceptable, says David Adams, head of heart surgery at the Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. "Too many miss out on optimal surgical treatment," he says. But this is fixable. Surgeons who offer patients only valve replacement because that's what they do well must think again. So must cardiologists reluctant to refer patients elsewhere for care. And insurance providers, who make doctors and patients jump through hoops for treatments outside of their networks, can't fight clear-cut practice guidelines.”
