Right Ventricular Blood Cyst Causing Outflow Tract Obstruction in an Adult.
Summary of "Right Ventricular Blood Cyst Causing Outflow Tract Obstruction in an Adult."
Abstractâ€‚ Blood cysts are benign intracardiac masses that are well described in infants. We present a rare adult presentation of a blood cyst tethered to the right ventricular wall and the tricuspid valve causing right ventricular outflow obstruction. Multimodality imaging approach was found to be of great importance in the diagnosis and treatment of this patient. (J Card Surg 2012;**:1-2).

Ventricular Outflow Obstruction
Occlusion of the outflow tract in either the LEFT VENTRICLE or the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart. This may result from CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS, predisposing heart diseases, complications of surgery, or HEART NEOPLASMS.
The presence of an increased amount of blood in a body part or an organ leading to congestion or engorgement of blood vessels. Hyperemia can be due to increase of blood flow into the area (active or arterial), or due to obstruction of outflow of blood from the area (passive or venous).
Cysts formed from epithelial inclusions in the lines of fusion of the embryonic processes which form the jaws. They include nasopalatine or incisive canal cyst, incisive papilla cyst, globulomaxillary cyst, median palatal cyst, median alveolar cyst, median mandibular cyst, and nasoalveolar cyst.
Blockage in any part of the URETER causing obstruction of urine flow from the kidney to the URINARY BLADDER. The obstruction may be congenital, acquired, unilateral, bilateral, complete, partial, acute, or chronic. Depending on the degree and duration of the obstruction, clinical features vary greatly such as HYDRONEPHROSIS and obstructive nephropathy.
Tetralogy Of Fallot
A combination of congenital heart defects consisting of four key features including VENTRICULAR SEPTAL DEFECTS; PULMONARY STENOSIS; RIGHT VENTRICULAR HYPERTROPHY; and a dextro-positioned AORTA. In this condition, blood from both ventricles (oxygen-rich and oxygen-poor) is pumped into the body often causing CYANOSIS.
We report the case of a 56-year-old woman with effort angina, dyspnea and a septal mass causing atrioventricular block, treated with pacemaker implantation, and left ventricular outflow tract obstruct...
An 11Â day-old female infant underwent resection of a mass in the subaortic region secondary to critical aortic stenosis. At 3Â months of age, recurrent severe left-ventricular outflow obstruction (LV...
Left ventricular hypertrophy, dehydration, sepsis, vasodilatation, excessive sympathetic stimulation, pericardial tamponade and surgical treatment of the atrioventricular valve are known causes of lef...
Recently, new cardiac imaging techniques as cardiac magnetic resonance have shown to play a primary role for a recognition of unusual mechanisms of right and left ventricular obstruction. However, ech...
We sought to develop electrocardiography (ECG) criteria for distinguishing left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) from right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) origin in patients with idiopathic outflow...
The purpose of this study is to compare 2 techniques of pulmonary valve replacement in patients with a large right ventricular outflow tract: a standard surgical treatment using cardiopulm...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the occurrence of idiopathic right ventricular outflow tract(RVOT) arrhythmia is relative to sex hormone levels in different stages of fe...
DDD pacing improves symptoms and relieves LV outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction in most patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). Notably, when pacing is temporarily discontinued, th...
The purpose of this trial is to compare two standard of care treatments for removing epidermal cysts. Surgical excision removes the entire cyst but requires a larger hole in the skin. A...
Silver nitrate treatment of Bartholin's cyst or abscess will be compared to marsupialization treatment. It is expected that silver nitrate treatment is effective, simple, inexpensive and...
