While anatomical variations in the cardiac circulation are quite commonly encountered, isolated congenital coronary artery anomalies are rare. These conditions are only reported in 1% of patients who underwent coronary angiogram and 0.3% of patients at autopsy.

Mitral stenosis frequently coexists in patients with severe aortic stenosis. Mitral stenosis severity evaluation is challenging in the setting of combined aortic stenosis and mitral stenosis because o...
Aortic stenosis is the most common type of valvular heart disease. Aortic stenosis is characterized both by progressive valve narrowing and the left ventricular remodeling response that ensues. In aor...
The Bruns Garland syndrome (diabetic amyotrophy) it is a very rare condition, with few cases reported in the literature. Clinical differentiation of diabetic amyotrophy or cauda equine syndrome may be...
Aortic stenosis affects 0.028% of cats in a shelter population, with valvular aortic stenosis compromising almost half of these cases. Of congenital heart diseases reported in cats, aortic stenosis is...
We present a case of a 42-year-old male patient with severe supravalvular aortic stenosis associated with aortic and mitral valve stenosis as well as an anomalous origin of the right coronary ostium c...
There is evidence that the degenerative changes leading to aortic stenosis are caused by a chronic inflammatory process. Furthermore the development of aortic stenosis is partially depende...
For fetuses with severe aortic stenosis, in utero balloon aortic valvuloplasty may improve fetal growth of left heart structures and thus improve potential for biventricular repair strateg...
The purpose of this retrospective, observational study is to compare the profit of BAV and TAVI in different subtypes of serve aortic stenosis.
Aortic stenosis is a major cause of morbidity around the world. Progressive aortic stenosis leads to cardiac hypertrophy as a compensatory response. A maladaptive response may lead to hear...
This study aims to evaluate whether baseline 18F-sodium fluoride uptake activity at aortic valve could predict aortic stenosis progression in moderate aortic stenosis. Patients with moder...
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
A pathological constriction that can occur above (supravalvular stenosis), below (subvalvular stenosis), or at the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
A pathological constriction occurring in the region below the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
A pathological constriction occurring in the region above the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.
Congenital conditions are those which are present from birth. They include structural deformities or loss of function in organs such as the <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->heart, gut or skeletal system. They can be corrected by <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->surgery, m...
