    • Is redo mitral mortality getting better or getting worse? 

      Glower, Donald D (Journal of cardiac surgery, 2021-07-03)
      Zubarevich et al. present the 30 day and 1-year outcomes of redo mitral valve replacement in 58 high-risk patients. The authors conclude that careful patient selection and risk stratification provides acceptable surgical ...
    • Port-Access Mitral Valve Surgery-An Evolution of Technique. 

      Barac, Yaron D; Glower, Donald D (Seminars in thoracic and cardiovascular surgery, 2020-12)
      Port-access mitral valve surgery has been around since 1995; and many variations upon the technique have been developed. Since 1996, we have performed more than 2500 port-access mitral valve surgeries, and thus gained a ...
    • Robotic versus port-access mitral repair: A propensity score analysis. 

      Barac, Yaron D; Loungani, Rahul S; Sabulsky, Richard; Zwischenberger, Brittany; Gaca, Jeffrey; Carr, Keith; Glower, Donald D (Journal of cardiac surgery, 2021-04)
      <h4>Background</h4>Port-access (PORT) and robotic (ROBO) mitral repair are well established, but differences in patient selection and outcomes are not well documented.<h4>Methods</h4>A retrospective analysis was performed ...
    • Task-related changes in degree centrality and local coherence of the posterior cingulate cortex after major cardiac surgery in older adults. 

      Browndyke, Jeffrey N; Berger, Miles; Smith, Patrick J; Harshbarger, Todd B; Monge, Zachary A; Panchal, Viral; Bisanar, Tiffany L; ... (14 authors) (Hum Brain Mapp, 2017-11-21)
      OBJECTIVES: Older adults often display postoperative cognitive decline (POCD) after surgery, yet it is unclear to what extent functional connectivity (FC) alterations may underlie these deficits. We examined for postoperative ...
    • Using a Regent Aortic Valve in a Small Annulus Mitral Position Is a Viable Option. 

      Barac, Yaron D; Zwischenberger, Brittany; Schroder, Jacob N; Daneshmand, Mani A; Haney, John C; Gaca, Jeffrey G; Wang, Andrew; ... (9 authors) (The Annals of thoracic surgery, 2018-04)
      BACKGROUND:Outcome of mitral valve replacement in extreme scenarios of small mitral annulus with the use of the Regent mechanical aortic valve is not well documented. METHODS:Records were examined in 31 consecutive patients ...
