A 16-year-old boy presented with acute unilateral painless vision loss associated with a central retinal artery occlusion. Subsequent studies revealed an atrial septal defect of 17 mm, which was closed via a cardioform septal occluder. [J Pediatr Ophthalmol Strabismus. 2019;56:e73-e75.].
Atrial septal aneurysm (ASA) is a rare congenital malformation consisting of redundant atrial septal tissue that bulges into either the right or the left atrium. Here, we report the case of a 45-year-old man with a giant ASA prolapsing into the tricuspid orifice and leading to tricuspid valvular obstruction. He was treated successfully by resection of the ASA and repair of the resulting atrial septal defect. Our case indicates the utility of transthoracic, contrast, and transesophageal echocardiography to c...
Percutaneous atrial septal defect (ASD) closure carries a not negligible burden of complications, such as the erosion of cardiac structures surrounding the device. Complications related to erosion are rare and often occur during the first 6 months after implantation.
Many Down syndrome (DS) patients have an atrial septal defect (ASD) and associated pulmonary hypertension (PH) from early childhood. ASD closure in DS patients with PH is often controversial due to concerns regarding exacerbation of PH. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical outcome following surgical ASD closure in children with DS.
Atrial septal defect (ASD) and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) are both common congenital heart diseases, but the combination of these two cardiac defects is extremely rare, and the therapeutic strategy is controversial.
Iatrogenic atrial septal defect (IASD) after catheter ablation (CA) for atrial fibrillation (AF) due to transseptal puncture (TSP) can occur. The aim of this prospective study was to describe the incidence of IASD and to detect any cerebrovascular accident (CVA) after radiofrequency (RF) and cryoballoon (CB) CA.
We describe an asymptomatic 7 year old boy who was taken to the operating room for repair of a subaortic membrane and possible Gerbode's defect. He was found to have a double outlet right atrium associated with an accessory atrioventricular valve in addition to a small atrial septal defect and subaortic membrane. Regurgitant flow through this accessory valve led to the left ventricle to right atrial shunt that was seen on pre-operative ECHO. The atrial septal defect was repaired and a baffle was used to iso...
Transcatheter closure is the preferred method for atrial septal defect (ASD) closure. Robotic surgery has become the least invasive technique for ASD closure. Therefore, we sought to evaluate the outcomes in patients who underwent ASD closure with transcatheter or robotic surgery techniques.
We sought to evaluate the safety and efficacy in improving cardiac function and functional capacity with device closure of large atrial septal defects (ASD) in senior adults.
Surgical repair of superior sinus venosus atrial septal defect (SVASD) associated with partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) is usually performed with either a two-patch technique or the Warden procedure. However both techniques can lead to superior vena cava and/or pulmonary vein stenosis, as well as sinus node dysfunction. To prevent these complications, we have utilized a modified two-patch technique.
The anatomy of the sinus venosus atrial septal defect (ASD) of the inferior vena caval type is complex. Limited rate of complications during its closure has been described. One of the unusual complications, with few case reports, is the iatrogenic diversion of the inferior vena cava (IVC) to the left atrium (LA).
The number of patients undergoing heart transplantation is limited because of the shortage of donor hearts. Expanding the donor pool with precise evaluation of donor heart is the most practical way to increase the number of patients undergoing heart transplantation. However, echocardiographic evaluation of especially right ventricle (RV) in brain-dead donors is challenging. Repeated echocardiography with volume overload may reveal unrecognized congenital heart disease such as atrial septal defect (ASD).
Familial atrial septal defect (ASD) has previously been attributed primarily to mutations in cardiac transcription factors. Here, we report a large, multi-generational family (78 members) with ASD combined with a late-onset dilated cardiomyopathy and further characterize the consequences of mutant α-actin.
Ventricular septal rupture (VSR) is an uncommon but potentially fatal complication of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The management of VSR is challenging, and its surgical correction is associated with the highest mortality among all cardiac surgery procedures.
This cross-sectional study assessed distribution and pattern of echocardiography confirmed congenital heart disease, among 593 pediatric patients in outpatient departments of a tertiary care hospital in eastern India. Commonest defects were ventricular septal defect (43, 40.7%), atrial septal defect (241, 31.7%), and tetralogy of Fallot (125, 21%).
Primary cardiac tumors are very rare and generally benign. The most common type, cardiac rhabdomyoma, comprises 45% to 75% of primary cardiac tumors. Cardiac rhabdomyoma is a rare benign tumor that commonly presents with tuberous sclerosis. We present a case of an infant with multifocal cardiac rhabdomyomas with an atrial septal defect and tricuspid insufficiency and no sign of tuberous sclerosis. She was successfully treated with an operation, the treatment plan included mass resection, tricuspid annulopla...
Atrial septal defect is a persistent interatrial communication. It is the second most common congenital heart defect and is detected in 1:1500 live births. Clinical course is variable and depends on the size of the malformation. Clinical diagnosis is based on patient history, physical and instrumental examination. Atrial septal defect is frequently sporadic, but familial cases have been reported. The disease has autosomal dominant inheritance with reduced penetrance, variable expressivity and genetic hetero...
Atrial septal hematoma is uncommon complication that may happen after any cardiac intervention. Although it is rare, it can pose a challenging situation in the postoperative care. Multiple management approaches has been described with different outcomes. Here we are reporting a boy, aged 13 years, with dilated aortic root who underwent aortic root replacement with valve preservation. Postoperative course was complicated by atrial septal hematoma. A nonsurgical management approach was chosen based on the pat...
Mohsin M, Akhtar S. Kawasaki disease complicated by peripheral gangrene and a ventricular septal defect: An unusual association. Turk J Pediatr 2019; 61: 301-304. Kawasaki disease is an acute febrile illness associated with the vasculitis of small and medium size arteries. Peripheral gangrene is very rare but a known complication of Kawasaki disease mostly reported in the infantile age group. Early therapy is advocated for prevention of serious complications. We report a 10-month-old girl with Kawasaki dise...
An atrial septal aneurysm (ASA) is a rare congenital cardiac deformity characterized by interatrial septum protruding into atria forming a saccular structure.
Cardiac erosion is a rare serious complication following Amplatzer septal occluder (ASO) placement for atrial septal defect. Although multiple risk factors have been found, a useful predictor to prevent it has not been established yet. In 12 patients who developed erosion between 2005 and 2016 in Japan, we retrospectively observed patients' characteristics and transesophageal echocardiography findings immediately before and after ASO placement and at erosion onset. We compared risk factors of erosion, inclu...
Patients undergoing postinfarction ventricular septal defect (VSD) repair are at high risk for early morbidity and mortality, but little is known about subsequent clinical events. This study uses short-term clinical data from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) National Database linked with Medicare data to examine longer-term outcomes in these patients.
Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) under general anesthesia (GA) or intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) under sedation is usually used for echocardiographic guidance during transcatheter atrial septal defect (ASD) closure. However, appropriate selection of guidance has not been fully established. Our study aimed to evaluate whether selection of guidance depending on anatomic ASD features and TEE tolerability under sedation contributes to procedure success. On the basis of anatomic ASD characteristics an...
