Article
Pulmonary regurgitation after repair of tetralogy of Fallot has always been an important issue for pediatric cardiac surgeons. Some of the patients may need pulmonary valve replacement in the future. Conventional prosthesis valves were seldom custom made for the pulmonary valve and were often inadequate to use because of variable age and size of th...

Biliary complications remain a major weakness of liver transplantation. The purpose of this retrospective study was to determine risk factors associated with biliary complications after liver transplantation, and how they were managed. From October 1989 to December 2007, we collected all variables of interest in 253 consecutive liver transplant rec...
Article
While arteriovenous fistula (AVF) nonmaturation is a major issue of hemodialysis care, an effective treatment to improve AVF maturation remains lacking. AVF introduces pulsatile arterial blood flow into its venous limb and produces high luminal pressure gradient, which may have adverse effect on vascular remodeling. As such, the aim of the present...

OBJECTIVES Many surgeons develop unique techniques for unmet needs for right ventricular outflow reconstruction to resolve pulmonary regurgitation after corrective surgery for congenital heart diseases. Expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) stands out as a reliable synthetic material, and clinical results with handmade ePTFE valves have been pro...

While the patency of vascular access is essential for hemodialysis patients, optimal pharmaceutical treatment to maintain arteriovenous fistula (AVF) patency remains lacking. As cardiovascular diseases are highly prevalent in patients with end-stage renal disease, various cardiovascular medications have also been used to maintain AVF patency. Howev...
Article
Objectives: Handmade trileaflet expanded polytetrafluoroethylene valved conduit developed using the flip-over method has been tailored for pulmonary valve reconstruction with satisfactory outcomes. We investigated the in vitro performance of the valve design in a mock circulatory system with various conduit sizes. In our study, the design was tran...

Introduction: Arteriovenous fistula (AVF) is the preferred vascular access for hemodialysis due to its higher patency and lower infection rate. However, its suboptimal maturation rate is a major weakness. Although substantial risk factors for AVF maturation failure have been disclosed, modifiable risk factors remain unknown. During the AVF maturat...
Article
Right heart failure is not uncommon in the patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF). Although commercialized transcatheter stent-mounted pulmonary valves are effective treatment options for improving functional class and for normalizing right ventricular volumes in such patients, they are not available in Taiwan. To provide a handmade alte...
Article
Background: Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has been proven effective in life support for patients with refractory cardiopulmonary failure. Deteriorating patients who have removed their first ECMO support and required second or more courses of ECMO support have rarely been discussed. Methods and results: All the records of the patient...

To present a novel method of preparing carbon dioxide (CO2) for contrast enhancement. CO2 angiography can often produce poor image enhancement, especially in dependent vessels due to buoyancy of the gas. A new technique for premixing the CO2 gas with the patient's blood and dispersing it into the bubble mixture before injection was developed. Compa...
