Minimally Invasive Periareolar Approach to Cor Triatriatum Repair.

Innovations (Phila) 2018 Nov/Dec;13(6):445-447

From the Division of Cardiac Surgery.

Cor triatriatum sinister is an uncommon cardiac abnormality characterized by a membrane that divides the left atrium into two chambers. Definitive management requires surgical resection, traditionally through sternotomy. Minimally invasive reparative techniques are associated with reduced blood loss, shorter hospitalization, faster recovery time, and improved cosmesis with excellent patient satisfaction. Read More

Cor-Triatriatum Dexter with Associated Cyanosis in a 3-Month-Old Girl.

J Cardiovasc Echogr 2018 Apr-Jun;28(2):143-145

Department of Nursing, Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Kano, Nigeria.

Cor-triatriatum is uncommon and cor-triatriatum dexter is rarer, and patients may remain asymptomatic in isolated cases especially if the partitioning is mild and nonobstructing. There may be other cardiac defects associated with it which are mostly right-sided cardiac defects such as atrial septal defect, Ebstein anomaly, and pulmonary stenosis. However, left-sided heart anomaly such as aortic regurgitation has been associated with it, but its association with transposition of the great vessels has not been documented before now. Read More

A rare case of pacemaker induced tachycardia in an elderly woman with cor triatriatum sinistrum.

Oxf Med Case Reports 2017 Aug 17;2017(8):omx047. Epub 2017 Aug 17.

University of Medicine and Pharmacy 'Iuliu Hatieganu', Cluj Napoca, Romania.

Pacemaker induced tachycardia (PIT) is a rare iatrogenic rhythm disorder which tipically occurs in patients with dual-chamber pacemakers and has different causes, including oversensing of atrial tachyarrhythmia waves. Cor triatriatum sinistrum is a congenital abnormality infrequent in adults, associated with a high risk of atrial tachyarrhythmia. We present the case of a 80-year-old woman incidentally diagnosed with cor triatriatum sinistrum echocardiographycally, implanted with a DDD pacemaker for sinus node disease, who developed atrial tachyarrhythmia (paroxysmal atrial fibrillation and left atrial tachycardia), which triggered a PIT, successfully aborted by automatic mode switch.

Division of Neonatology, Department of Pediatrics, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN, USA.

Small remnants of the right valve of the sinus venosus are commonly found in adults, but the incidence and risk associated with these embryonic remnants in neonates are not well studied. The following report describes a cyanotic neonate with a large Eustachian valve remnant creating a functional cor triatriatum dexter who was initially diagnosed with persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn. The cyanosis in this infant improved over the first postnatal week with conservative management, but she suffered multifocal subcortical stroke, likely related to her intracardiac shunt. Read More

A successful cesarean delivery without fetal or maternal morbidity in an Eisenmenger patient with cor triatriatum sinistrum, double-orifice mitral valve, large ventricular septal defect, and single ventricle who was under long-term bosentan treatment.

Turk Kardiyol Dern Ars 2017 Mar;45(2):184-188

Department of Cardiology, Haydarpaşa Numune Training and Research Hospital, İstanbul, Turkey.

Presently described is successful cesarean delivery in a pregnancy superimposed on long-term bosentan treatment in an Eisenmenger syndrome patient with cor triatriatum sinistrum, double-orifice mitral valve, and large ventricular septal defect resulting in single functioning ventricle with double outlets. Cesarean delivery was performed at 27th week of gestation without maternal or fetal morbidity. The infant had no congenital cardiovascular abnormality or any probable teratogenic effect of bosentan treatment during pregnancy. Read More

Three's a Crowd - An Extremely Rare Case of Cor Triatriatum Dexter.

J La State Med Soc 2017 Mar-Apr;169(2):50-51. Epub 2017 Apr 15.

Department of Medicine, Leonard J. Chabert Medical Center in Houma, LA.

Introduction: Cor triatriatum is a congenital cardiac anomaly in which the left (sinister) or right (dexter) atrium is divided into two compartments by residual embryonic tissue, resulting in a tri-atrial heart. As cor triatriatum dextrum can present clinically in various ways and have multiple associated cardiac anomalies, this report attempts to contribute to what is known about this exceedingly rare disorder.

Case: A 40 year old Hispanic man with a medical history of gastritis presented with complaints of palpitations, dizziness and bilateral lower extremity edema. Read More

A Rare Case of Cor Triatriatum Leading to Respiratory Failure and Shock in an 8-Month-Old Boy.

Authors:
Catherine Burger

Pediatr Emerg Care 2019 Jan;35(1):e6-e8

From the Department of Emergency Medicine, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Nashville, TN.

An 8-month-old boy presents with 1 week of gradually worsening respiratory distress. After chest radiograph shows bilateral airspace opacities, he is treated for pneumonia with antibiotics and intravenous fluids. Shortly after this, he decompensates requiring intubation, followed by cardiopulmonary support with pressors and eventually extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. Read More

Cor triatriatum sinister with an intact interatrial septum and a decompressing vein in a toddler.

Cardiol Young 2017 Aug 6;27(6):1221-1224. Epub 2017 Mar 6.

1Division of Congenital Heart Surgery,Texas Children's Hospital,Houston,TX,United States of America.

Cor triatriatum sinister is a very rare cardiac anomaly that may lead to pulmonary hypertension, right ventricular dilation, and eventually right heart failure. We report a case of a toddler who presented with respiratory distress and cardiomegaly and was found to have cor triatriatum sinister with a restrictive communication, decompressing vertical vein, pulmonary hypertension, severe tricuspid regurgitation, and severe right ventricular dysfunction. She underwent a successful surgical repair, with normalisation of right ventricular function and pulmonary artery pressure. Read More

Hyaluronidase 2 Deficiency Causes Increased Mesenchymal Cells, Congenital Heart Defects, and Heart Failure.

Circ Cardiovasc Genet 2017 Jan;10(1)

From the Department of Biochemistry and Medical Genetics (B.C., M.L., R.H., B.T.-R.), Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics (B.X., V.W.D.), and Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology (M.L.), University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada; and The Children's Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada (V.W.D., B.T.-R.).

Background: Hyaluronan (HA) is required for endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition and normal heart development in the mouse. Heart abnormalities in hyaluronidase 2 (HYAL2)-deficient ( ) mice and humans suggested removal of HA is also important for normal heart development. We have performed longitudinal studies of heart structure and function in mice to determine when, and how, HYAL2 deficiency leads to these abnormalities. Read More

Cor triatriatum sinistrum: presentation of syncope and atrial tachycardia.

BMJ Case Rep 2017 Feb 14;2017. Epub 2017 Feb 14.

Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Cambridge, UK.

We present a rather unusual cause for syncope associated with atrial tachycardia. A man aged 39 years presented with an episode of syncope and narrow complex tachycardia. Further investigations, including transoesophageal echocardiography, identified cor triatriatum sinistrum (CTS), a rare congenital abnormality characterised by the atrium being divided by a fibrous membrane.

Mitral Inflow Obstruction Resulting From a Dilated Coronary Sinus: Role of Intraoperative Transesophageal Echocardiography in Diagnosis and Surgical Repair: A Case Report.

A A Case Rep 2017 Apr;8(7):164-169

From the Departments of *Anesthesia and †Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology, Trivandrum, India.

Mitral inflow obstruction caused by dilated coronary sinus is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly that must be differentiated from other causes of left ventricular inflow obstruction such as cor triatriatum, supramitral membrane, and supramitral ridge, because their surgical repair is different. Although preoperative transthoracic echocardiography is the primary imaging modality for diagnosis, intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography has a higher sensitivity and specificity over transthoracic echocardiography in differentiating these lesions. We report 2 cases of supramitral obstruction where the intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography has refined the preoperative diagnosis and changed the course of surgical repair. Read More
