Pulmonary artery-to-left atrial fistula discovered after the closure of atrial septal defect: A rare clinical scenario.

Ann Pediatr Cardiol 2018 May-Aug;11(2):211-213

Department of Cardiology, G B Pant Hospital, New Delhi, India.

A case of the right pulmonary artery-to- left atrial fistula with atrial septal defect (ASD) is presented. The fistula was detected after the patient developed desaturation following surgical closure of the ASD. It was managed with a transcatheter (trans-RPA route) closure of the fistula using a 12-mm Amplatzer ventricular septal defect closure device.

Surgical challenge in situs inversus with dextrocardia and Lutembacher syndrome.

Asian Cardiovasc Thorac Ann 2018 Nov 6;26(9):690-693. Epub 2017 Mar 6.

GB Pant Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research, New Delhi, India.

Situs inversus with dextrocardia and Lutembacher syndrome is a rare cardiac anomaly. It is associated with other complex cardiac anomalies and anatomical defects. A 30-year-old woman with this condition underwent mitral valve replacement and closure of a secundum atrial septal defect. We describe the surgical approach, position of the surgeon, and bicaval cannulation technique for this anatomical aberration.

Cardiac myxomas: experience over one decade.

J Card Surg 2011 Jul;26(4):355-9

Department of CTVS, GB Pant Hospital, New Delhi, India.

Background: This single-center study reviews our experience with cardiac myxomas over the past decade.

Methods: Sixty-two patients (23 male) with median age 38 years (range: 8 to 69 years) underwent excision of primary or recurrent cardiac myxomas between 2000 and 2009. Patients were evaluated with echocardiography preoperatively and annually postoperatively. Follow-up is current for all survivors (range 13 months to 10 years).

Results: Fifty-two patients had left atrial myxomas, seven right atrial, two biatrial, and one right ventricular. Three cases were familial. Maximum number of myxomas in a single patient was four. Symptom duration ranged from two to eight months. Two early deaths were due to low cardiac output and embolic cerebrovascular accident; one late death was due to a noncardiac cause. Actuarial survival was 96.8 ± 1.8% at 10 years. Most patients were asymptomatic following surgery. No sporadic, multiple, or biatrial myxomas recurred. Recurrence occurred in two familial cases, both with single, left atrial myxoma. Freedom from reoperation was 98.4 ± 1.3% at five years and 96.8 ± 1.8% at 10 years.

Conclusions: Biatrial involvement or multiplicity of myxomas does not mandate recurrence. Surgical excision has excellent overall survival and freedom from reoperation rates, but annual follow-up including echocardiographic surveillance is recommended as familial cases tend to recur.

Stentless valves versus stented bioprostheses at the aortic position: midterm results.

J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2008 Oct 24;136(4):943-7. Epub 2008 Jul 24.

Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, GB Pant Hospital, Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi, India.

Objective: Our aim was to compare stentless and stented bioprostheses. Clinical outcomes, hemodynamic performance, and postoperative left ventricular mass regression were the principal outcomes assessed.

Methods: Sixty-two patients were recruited for the study. Our protocol was to consider all patients older than 55 years for bioprostheses, and also younger patients were implanted with a bioprosthesis if they wanted to avoid anticoagulation. Patients selected for bioprostheses were randomly assigned to receive stentless (group A) and stented (group B) bioprostheses, depending on the treating unit. Patients in groups A and B were further divided into subgroups I and II based on left ventricular ejection fractions of 50% or greater and less than 50%, respectively.

Results: At 18 +/- 3 months postoperatively, the effective orifice area was greater in group A versus group B. Left ventricular ejection fraction, left ventricular mass index, functional class, and mean gradient were similar in patients of subgroup I (left ventricular ejection fraction >50%) from both groups. However, there was a significant difference between all except mean gradient in patients of subgroup II (left ventricular ejection fraction <50%) from both groups. Also, in the patient subgroup implanted with valves of less than 19 mm (group A, 4 patients; group B, 3 patients), there was a significant difference in left ventricular mass index and mean gradient.

Conclusion: In patients with left ventricular impairment or a small aortic annulus, stentless bioprostheses might allow for greater improvement in left ventricular function postoperatively.
