The essence of bypass grafting for aortic coarctation

 

In 1973, C. Weldon first described the method of forming a bypass graft for the thoracic aorta during its coarctation. Although several operations already existed at that time, the goal of developing a new treatment method was to reduce the risk of complications.

Bypass grafting involves the formation of a bypass graft, which is a new path for the movement of blood around the narrowed site. This means that doctors create an additional blood vessel (a graft) into which blood enters above the narrowing of the aorta and from which it returns to the aorta below the narrowing. This type of bypass grafting is called an aorto-aortic bypass. The original technique involved the formation of a bypass graft between the aortic arch and the descending aorta.

Who may be a candidate for bypass grafting for aortic coarctation?

 

Bypass grafting is a rare type of surgery to repair coarctation. The main treatment methods are the removal of the narrowed area with an end-to-end anastomosis or with aorta replacement surgery, plastic repair with synthetic flaps or subclavian flaps, as well as balloon angioplasty, which is a minimally invasive procedure performed from inside the blood vessels.

Surgical repair with bypass grafting may be indicated in the following cases:

  • aortic coarctation repair after a previously performed operation (recoarctation) in adult patients;
  • a significant length of the narrowed area of the isthmus and the distal aortic arch;
  • a low resistance of the brain to a lack of blood supply, which makes it impossible to clamp the carotid arteries;
  • a significant adhesive process (usually caused by previous operations) that prevents standard interventions for the treatment of aortic coarctation from being performed.

How is bypass grafting for aortic coarctation performed?

 

Surgical restoration of blood flow through the aorta by forming a bypass graft is performed under general anesthesia. A sternotomy and a right- or left-sided thoracotomy can be used as a surgical approach. The operation can be performed with or without connecting the patient to a heart-lung machine. Basically, doctors perform a right-sided thoracotomy and do not connect the patient to a heart-lung machine, which reduces the risk of complications.

During the operation, a doctor makes an incision in the fifth intercostal space, opens the pleural cavity, retracts the right lung up and forward, and isolates the thoracic segment of the aorta for up to 10 cm. The right intercostal arteries are ligated. A prosthesis about 20 cm long is sutured with its lower end to the descending aorta. The lung is then retracted back and down, the pericardium is dissected, and the ascending aorta is isolated. The upper end of the artificial graft is placed, and its tightness is checked.

At the end of each stage of the operation, the tightness of the implanted vascular graft is checked. The blood flow through the aorta is then restored. Patients require pleural and pericardial drainages (tubes remain in the thorax for some time to drain fluid).

Benefits of bypass grafting for aortic coarctation

 

The benefits of this surgical treatment for patients lie mainly in the safety of the surgical repair. During the operation:

  • there is no risk of damage to the lung, intercostal arteries, aorta, or the recurrent laryngeal nerve;
  • there is no need to clamp the aorta in the area of degenerative changes of the walls;
  • the method of parietal aortal pressing is used, which significantly reduces the risk of brain complications due to circulatory failure;
  • the risk of developing spinal complications is almost zero;
  • there is no need for hypothermia (cooling) or connection to a heart-lung machine;
  • a less traumatic single-pleural thoracotomy is performed, which allows patients to reduce their recovery period after surgery;
  • tracheal and esophageal compression can be simultaneously eliminated by dissecting the compressing structures.

Where to undergo your bypass grafting for aortic coarctation repair?

 

You can undergo your diagnostics, surgical treatment for aortic coarctation repair, and follow-up recovery in one of the German hospitals. In Germany, you will find effective and safe treatment, comprehensive recovery, and high-quality care after surgery. Bypass grafting is performed with a minimal risk of complications. This operation is usually performed without connecting the patient to a heart-lung machine.
