Ventricular septal defects are the most common congenital abnormality diagnosed in children but account for only 10 percent of congenital heart defects in adults. Although many defects close spontaneously before adulthood, many others persist, predisposing to endocarditis, and other complications. Herein, we report a case of a known, asymptomatic, perimembranous ventricular septal defects that has complicated at 53 years of age with the need for surgery due to native aortic valve endocarditis and concomitan...
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.
Traditional X-ray-guided transcatheter closure of atrial septal defects (ASDs) via the right femoral vein carries a risk of radiation damage, which is greatly exacerbated by age and vascular conditions. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) guidance for the closure procedure not only broadens the indications of interventional therapy for ASDs but also avoids radiation exposure.
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.
Septoplasty usefully treats patients with nasal obstructions caused by septal deviations. However, correction of a caudal septal deviation remains surgically challenging; no standard procedure is available, although various procedures have been introduced. In this work we propose a simple, safe, and time-saving technique for patients with caudal septal deviations.
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.
While most people believe the nasal septum to have intrinsic deviation and overgrowth in patients seeking rhinoplasty, an alternative concept is that a mal-oriented premaxilla causes extrinsic septal buckling and external extrusion of the septal cartilage. In this sense, the premaxillary bone plays a significant role in the pathogenesis of septal deviation. This study was performed to determine if non-traumatically acquired septal/nasal functional and aesthetic pathology or septal deviation may be related t...
Septal reduction therapy can be considered along the lines of hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy patients who have drug-refractory symptoms. This can be applied either surgical myectomy or either alcohol septal ablation (ASA). Alcohol septal ablation has been performed successfully since the first announcement of ASA in 1995.
Fetuses with large ventricular septal defects (VSDs) must be closely monitored during the perinatal period. Intrauterine assessment of size of septal defects with bidimensional echocardiography are unreliable. The objective of the present study is to document the contribution of flow pattern analysis in the fetal aortic isthmus for prenatal identification of large non-restrictive VSDs requiring immediate postnatal attention. We conducted a cross-sectional retrospective study of Doppler recordings from patie...
Nasal septal abscesses are commonly caused by nasal trauma, infection, and nasal surgery. As delayed treatment of nasal septal abscesses can cause various complications, including saddle nose, a prompt diagnosis with the relevant intervention is important. However, the diagnosis of nasal septal abscesses is difficult when nasal pain occurs after cauterization because there have been no formal reports of nasal septal abscesses owing to cauterization for epistaxis. Here, the authors report the first case of a...
To evaluate the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) of adult patients who underwent transthoracic device closure of ventricular septal defect (VSD).
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.
Cartilage grafts have become popular in facial plastic surgery to reconstruct defects or to improve aesthetic outcomes in various applications. But there is a considerable rate of graft failure like resorption or deformation. To improve graft survival and function, accurate understanding of the properties of the recipient site is indispensable. Therefore 10 noses of human cadavers were meticulously dissected and specimens of alar and septal cartilage subjected to confined compression and tensile tests. Furt...
Since their introduction, percutaneous techniques have been replacing conventional surgery as a first-line treatment for septal defects. Amplatzer devices were the first to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration, and their placement has become a standard procedure in pediatric cardiology. Bacterial endocarditis of intracardiac devices such as the Amplatzer septal occluder is very infrequent. We report a case of bacterial endocarditis in a pediatric patient with an Amplatzer device, who developed an...
Management strategy for patients of ventricular septal defect and pulmonary atresia (VSD/PA) with hypoplastic pulmonary arteries presenting in late childhood or adolescence is still controversial. We present our experience with the use of right ventricle-pulmonary artery shunt (RV-PA) in management of this entity.
Porous high-density polyethylene implants (Medpor) have been extensively used for septal extension grafts in Asian rhinoplasty. However, studies on the long-term complications associated with Medpor have not been reported. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term complications of septal extension grafts using Medpor and present a reconstructive strategy for destructed septal L-struts.
The systemic-to-pulmonary shunt (SPS) and right ventricle to pulmonary artery (RV-PA) connection were evaluated to pursue the goal of rehabilitating dysplastic native PAs via establishment of antegrade blood flow. However, the application of these two palliative operations was still confusing. We compared the two operations to determine their different effects on patients who have pulmonary atresia, ventricular septal defects, and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (MAPCAs).
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.].
Multicellular lifestyle requires cell-cell connections. In multicellular cyanobacteria, septal junctions enable molecular exchange between sister cells and are required for cellular differentiation. The structure of septal junctions is poorly understood, and it is unknown whether they are capable of controlling intercellular communication. Here, we resolved the in situ architecture of septal junctions by electron cryotomography of cryo-focused ion beam-milled cyanobacterial filaments. Septal junctions consi...
Percutaneous intramyocardial (PIM) septal radiofrequency ablation (SRA) is a novel treatment approach for hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy patients, but there has been lack of a large animal model to study PIM-SRA. We aimed to validate the long-term safety and efficacy of PIM-SRA and to observe pathological changes of the ablated interventricular septum (IVS) in a healthy sheep model.
Analysis of the septal aperture was conducted on two documented European populations. Collections from the National Museum of Natural History Lisbon, Portugal and University of Athens, Greece were used for the study. Both collections are modern and documented for sex and age. The Portuguese sample comprises 297 individuals (149 males and 148 females) between the ages of 18 and 88. A septal aperture was observed in 50 individuals resulting in a frequency of 16.83%. The Greek sample comprises 117 individuals ...
