A revista Innovations Technology and Techniques in Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery publicou na edição de março/abril de 2010 o artigo "Tangential Triangular Resection: An Option to Treat the Giant Left Atrium", de autoria dos Drs. Pablo Pomerantzeff, Carlos Manuel Brandão, Marco Guedes e Noedir Stolf. O trabalho mostra a técnica de resecção triangular tangencial desenvolvida pelos cirurgiões cardiovasculares do Incor para a correção de átrio esquerdo gigante. Destaque-se que a ilustração do Relato de Caso foi escolhida pelos editores da revista Innovations para compor a capa da publicação (Figura 1).

A Revista Brasileira de Cirurgia Cardiovascular parabeniza os colegas, que, com este feito, mostram mais uma vez a pujança da cirurgia cardíaca no Brasil.

Abstract

A 21-year-old woman presented with congestive heart failure caused by congenital mitral and tricuspid insufficiency, associated with great left atrium enlargement. Transthoracic echocardiogram revealed heart dextroversion associated with mitral and tricuspid severe insufficiency and left atrium enlargement (14 cm), confirmed by magnetic resonance study. The left atrium was reduced by a tangential triangular resection of the posterior wall, between the pulmonary veins, suturing the edges of the left atrium with bovine pericardium strip reinforcement. Mitral and tricuspid valves were repaired. The postoperative course was uneventful, and the patient was discharged in the 15th postoperative day. A control magnetic resonance study revealed a 50% reduction in left atrium size. Evolution of left atrium resection is excellent, with low recurrence of arrhythmias, embolism, or heart failure.
