The Story of Dr Stella (1927-2006).

World J Pediatr Congenit Heart Surg 2019 01;10(1):125-128

1 Boston Children's Hospital, Boston, MA, USA.

A life of professional caring, research, teaching, and inspiration-this is the legacy of Dr Stella Zacharioudaki Van Praagh, MD. Among her many outstanding contributions, only a few are recorded here: (1) a new surgical operation for closing apical muscular ventricular septal defects, (2) a newly discovered form of anomalous pulmonary venous drainage and its surgical repair, (3) a new understanding of sinus venosus defects and their surgical repair, (4) the realization that the concept of atrial-level isomerism (mirror-imagery) in the heterotaxy syndromes of asplenia, polysplenia, and single right-sided spleen is erroneous, (5) the understanding that it is possible to diagnose the atrial situs in the majority of cases of the heterotaxy syndromes, and (6) the fact that the concepts of evolution, natural selection, and survival of the fittest were described by Empedocles, an ancient Greek philosopher, in the fifth century bc, and that these concepts were not discovered and published for the first time by Charles Darwin and Alfred Russell Wallace in the 19th century (1858 ad). Dr Stella was conversant with ancient Greek and read it frequently in an ancient Greek study group that she headed. Read More

Atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia in a child with tricuspid atresia: A case report of catheter ablation.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Feb;98(6):e14320

Department of Cardiology, Hunan Children's Hospital.

Rationale: Atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia (AVRT) is the most common supraventricular tachycardia occurring in children. However, in complex congenital heart disease patients with a different heart anatomy and conduction system morphology, accessory pathway modification may be particularly challenging because of distortion of typical anatomic landmarks.

Patient Concerns: A 10-year-old boy with tricuspid atresia and history of bidirectional Glenn operation had recurrent chest distress and palpitation for 3 months. Read More

Three-dimensional echocardiographic demonstration of aortic wall erosion after percutaneous atrial septal defect closure.

J Clin Ultrasound 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Department of Cardiology, Medipol University Camlica Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Although late complications of percutaneous closure of atrial septal defect (ASD), including cardiac erosion and thrombosis, are rare, they are the most lethal. Data are still lacking regarding the usefulness of new imagining modalities, such as three-dimensional echocardiography (3DE), for the detection of these complications. Here, we report the case of a 57-year-old woman in whom cardiac erosion was very well visualized by 3D transesophageal echocardiography (3D TEE) after percutaneous ASD closure. Read More

Off-label use of duct occluder in transcatheter closure of secundum atrial septal defect with no rim to right pulmonary vein.

J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2018 Dec 12. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Radiology Imaging Center, Cardiovascular Institute and Fuwai Hospital, National Center for Cardiovascular Diseases, Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, China.

Objective: Transcatheter closure is usually contraindicated in secundum atrial septal defect with no rim to right pulmonary vein. The morphology of an atrial septal defect is special in these patients, and the off-label use of a duct occluder might make transcatheter closure possible with the assistance of a personalized heart model. However, the related data are absent. Read More
