Cabrol aortic root replacement is rarely performed in recent years because of potential coronary complications. The purpose of this study was to investigate its early and late results, including coronary complications, by evaluating our experience thus far. A retrospective lookup of patients who underwent Cabrol aortic root replacement between 1988 and 2001 found a total of 36 patients (24 men and 12 women) with a mean age of 45 years. Annuloaortic ectasia was the most frequent cause (n = 22), followed by chronic dissection (n = 5), acute dissection (n = 5), and aneurysm with prior aortic operation (n = 4). Early mortality occurred in one patient (2.8%). The mean follow-up period was 104 months. There were 7 late deaths, 4 of which were disease-related. The actuarial survival was 83.3% at 5 years and 72.9% at 10 years, and the freedom from reoperation was 87.9% at 5 years and 76.6% at 10 years. There were no reoperations on the ascending aorta. Coronary ostia were examined by angiography or 64-row multidetector computed tomography in 18 patients 43 to 189 months after the operation. Two patients developed stenosis or occlusion of the right coronary ostium. The early and late results of the Cabrol operation were favorable with t...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
