Event Description

Through literature review livanova became aware of a (b)(6) years old male patient with a disseminated m. Chimaera infection following aortic dissection surgery in 2015. The patient developed an aortic root aneurysm diagnosed by echocardiogram in 2016, requiring redo-sternotomy and a bentall procedure in 2017. Medical history included cachexia and dorsalgia with a work/up revealing vertebral osteomyelitis with an epidural abscess, bone marrow and pulmonary infiltration with fluid collection around the aortic graft. The patient was subjected to antibiotics for one month before the explanation of infected foreign material, mediastinal debridement and aortic reconstruction. Complications included septic shock, respiratory and renal failure, mediastinitis and four distal aortic anastomotic dehiscences from friable tissue and persistent infection. He required wide debridement of infected mediastinal tissues and underwent a delayed vertical rectus abdominis myocutaneous flap closure of the chest. Days later the patient had recurrent active bleeding from his sternum and developed hemorrhagic shock ending with patient death. Within the article it is stated that the hospital used heater/cooler 3t systems.
