Treatment of fetal circular shunt with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Ultrasound Obstet Gynecol 2018 Oct 31. Epub 2018 Oct 31.

Fetal Cardiac, Labatt Family Heart Centre, Hospital for Sick Children, University of Toronto, Toronto, Canada.

A circular shunt (CS) is a life-threatening condition consisting of massive shunting of systemic arterial blood via the ductus arteriosus to the left ventricle without traversing the lungs. In the prenatal circulation, it mainly occurs in severe Ebstein anomaly (EA) from unrestricted ductal flow and significant pulmonary and tricuspid regurgitation. We aimed to improve the fetal hemodynamics and chances of survival of affected fetuses by inducing ductal constriction with transplacental non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Read More

Ebstein's Anomaly: "The One and a Half Ventricle Heart".

Braz J Cardiovasc Surg 2018 Jul-Aug;33(4):353-361

Department of Research, U. N. Mehta Institute of Cardiology and Research Centre (affiliated to BJ medical college, Ahmedabad), Gujarat, India.

Objective: Ebstein's anomaly remains a relatively ignored disease. Lying in the 'No Man's land' between congenital and valve surgeons, it largely remains inadequately studied. We report our short-term results of treating it as a 'one and a half ventricle heart' and propose that the true tricuspid annulus (TTA) 'Z' score be used as an objective criterion for estimation of 'functional' right ventricle (RV).

A rare case of Ebstein's anomaly with left ventricular noncompaction.

Asian Cardiovasc Thorac Ann 2018 Aug 6:218492318791421. Epub 2018 Aug 6.

1 St. Luke's Hospital, Thessaloniki, Greece.

Ebstein's anomaly is a rare congenital cardiac disease characterized by apical displacement of the tricuspid valve with decreased right ventricular function. Left ventricular noncompaction is a cardiomyopathy characterized by the presence of numerous and prominent trabeculations together with deep intertrabecular recesses in a portion of the ventricular wall, principally at the lateral and apical level. We describe the very rare case of a patient living for 78 years with a benign form of Ebstein's anomaly and left ventricular noncompaction cardiomyopathy with slightly reduced systolic function.

Wide QRS complex supraventricular tachycardia with negative precordial concordance: Electrocardiographic clues for Mahaim pathway with Ebstein anomaly.

J Electrocardiol 2018 Jul - Aug;51(4):663-666. Epub 2018 Apr 12.

Health Science University, Turkiye Yuksek Ihtisas Training and Research Hospital, Department of Electrophysiology, Ankara, Turkey.

Ebstein's anomaly is often accompanied by either Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome or atriofascicular Mahaim. These bypass tracts give rise to antidromic atrioventricular (AV) re-entrant tachycardias, in which the bypass tract serves as the anterograde limb of the circuit and the AV node as the retrograde limb of the reentrant circuit. Since the antidromic AV reentrant tachycardia over a Mahaim fibre has a typically left bundle braunch block (LBBB) morphology, it is easy to make a misdiagnosis of supraventricular tachycardia with functional LBBB or even of ventricular tachycardia particularly in the presence of negative concordance.

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

Cardiac imaging in Ebstein anomaly.

Trends Cardiovasc Med 2018 Aug 12;28(6):403-409. Epub 2018 Jan 12.

Division of Cardiovascular Diseases, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN.

Ebstein anomaly is a congenital disorder of right ventricular myocardial development, which affects the tricuspid valve in addition to the right ventricular myocardium. Cardiac imaging by transthoracic echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging are the key modalities used to assess timing and type of surgery. In this article, we review the current standards of echocardiographic and magnetic resonance imaging in Ebstein anomaly. Read More

Atrio-ventricular deformation and heart failure in Ebstein's Anomaly - A cardiovascular magnetic resonance study.

Int J Cardiol 2018 04 3;257:54-61. Epub 2018 Feb 3.

Department of Cardiology and Pneumology, University Medical Center, Georg-August-University Göttingen, Germany; DZHK, German Center for Heart Research, partner site Göttingen, Germany; Department of Cardiology, Royal North Shore Hospital, The Kolling Institute, Northern Clinical School, University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia. Electronic address:

Purpose: We aimed to quantify atrial and ventricular myocardial deformation in Ebstein's Anomaly (EA) in a case-control study with cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) feature tracking and to correlate changes in cardiac performance with the severity of disease and clinical heart failure parameters.

Materials And Methods: Atrial and ventricular deformation was measured using CMR feature tracking in 30 EA and 20 healthy control subjects. Atrial performance was characterized using longitudinal strain and strain rate parameters for reservoir function, conduit function and booster pump function. Read More

Ablation of Atrial Fibrillation in Patients with Congenital Heart Disease.

Arrhythm Electrophysiol Rev 2017 Dec;6(4):191-194

Cardiac Arrhythmia Service, Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School,Boston, USA.

With improved surgical techniques and medical management for patients with congenital heart diseases, more patients are living longer and well into adulthood. This improved survival comes with a price of increased morbidity, mainly secondary to increased risk of tachyarrhythmias. One of the major arrhythmias commonly encountered in this subset of cardiac patients is AF. Read More

A "congenitally corrected" variant of Ebstein's anomaly.

Cardiol Young 2018 Apr 10;28(4):608-610. Epub 2018 Jan 10.

1Department of Cardiology,Dr. Siyami Ersek Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery Research and Training Hospital,Istanbul,Turkey.

Ebstein's anomaly is a rare CHD that is characterised by caudal displacement of the functional tricuspid annulus and a dysfunctional tricuspid valve owing to a failure of proper leaflet coaptation. We present a balanced variant of Ebstein's anomaly, in which the overgrowth of the septal leaflet had allowed proper coaptation of the tricuspid leaflets, thus preserving the valve function.

Arrhythmia after cone repair for Ebstein anomaly: The Mayo Clinic experience in 143 young patients.

Congenit Heart Dis 2018 Jan 8;13(1):26-30. Epub 2018 Jan 8.

Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA.

Background: The increased incidence of preoperative and postoperative arrhythmia in Ebstein anomaly (EA) prompted some clinicians to perform an electrophysiology study (EPS) in all patients prior to surgery for EA. The cone repair (CR) is the current surgical option of choice for most young patients with EA but the effect of the CR on arrhythmia is not well established.

Objectives: To assess the burden of arrhythmia in young patients after CR and to assess the utility of selective preoperative EPS. Read More

Sudden death in patients with Ebstein anomaly.

Eur Heart J 2018 Jun;39(21):1970-1977a

Department of Cardiovascular Disease, Mayo Clinic, 200 1st Street Southwest, Rochester, MN 55905, USA.

Aims: Ventricular dysfunction or structural alteration of either ventricle is a well-established risk factor for sudden death (SD). Ebstein anomaly (EA) can present with both right and left heart abnormalities; however, predictors of SD have not been described. We therefore sought to characterize the incidence and risk factors of SD among a large cohort of patients with EA. Read More

Cardiac arrest and ventricular arrhythmia in adults with Ebstein anomaly and left ventricular non-compaction.

J Cardiol 2018 May 2;71(5):484-487. Epub 2018 Jan 2.

Institute of Cardiology, Department of Congenital Heart Disease, Warsaw, Poland.

Background: Ebstein anomaly is a complex, congenital heart defect that is associated with a variety of cardiac abnormalities. Studies found a similar sarcomere gene mutation in patients with Ebstein anomaly (EA) and patients with isolated left ventricular non-compaction (LVNC).

Aim: We aimed to show the prevalence of LVNC and its potential relationship with severe cardiac events (VT - ventricular tachycardia, cardiac arrest) in adult patients with EA. Read More
