Successful Transcatheter Atrial Septal Defect Closure Prior to Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting Using Anti-Congestive Therapies and Intraaortic Balloon Pumping in a Patient with Severe Ischemic Cardiomyopathy and Triple-Vessel Coronary Artery Disease.

Int Heart J 2018 Nov 25;59(6):1480-1484. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, National Cerebral and Cardiovascular Center.

In patients with an atrial septal defect (ASD) and left ventricular (LV) dysfunction associated with coronary artery disease (CAD), to avoid the development of acute left heart failure (HF) and an increase in myocardial oxygen consumption following ASD closure, it is conceivable that coronary artery revascularization should be performed prior to ASD closure. We report the case of a 67-year-old man with a large secundum ASD and LV ejection fraction of 15.6% resulting from severe ischemic cardiomyopathy and triple-vessel CAD, both of which contributed to biventricular HF characterized by high left-to-right shunt (Qp:Qs of 7.

Institute of Genetic Medicine, Newcastle University, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK.

Inferences made regarding the postnatal anatomy of the atrial septum still tend to be based on developmental evidence. Although atrial septation is a well-defined process, it is remarkably complex and remains poorly understood. It is now established, however, that the process involves the conjugation of several myocardial structures and mesenchymal tissues of both intracardiac and extracardiac origin. Read More

Right atrial function by speckle tracking echocardiography in atrial septal defect: Prediction of atrial fibrillation.

Clin Cardiol 2018 Oct 16;41(10):1341-1347. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Cardiac Department, Sapienza University, Rome, Italy.

Background: Most antiarrhythmic interventional therapies for atrial fibrillation (AF) have been provided with special focus on the treatment of left-sided valvular disease and enlarged left atrium but few studies have assessed AF associated with congenital heart disease and dilated right atrium.

Hypothesis: We hypothesized that right atrial (RA) function assessed by two-dimensional (2DSTE) and three-dimensional (3DSTE) speckle-tracking echocardiography in patients with atrial septal defect (ASD) before and after percutaneous trancatheter closure could predict paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) development.

Methods: Seventy-three patients with hemodynamically significant secundum ASD were prospectively studied and followed up for 6 months after occluder insertion and compared with a normal age-matched group (n = 73). Read More

1st Department of Cardiology, Hippokration Hospital, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Medical School, 114 Vas. Sofias, 11527, Athens, Greece.

Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is a residual, oblique, slit or tunnel like communication in the atrial septum that persists into adulthood. It is usually an incidental finding with no clinical repercussions. Nevertheless, recent evidence supports the association between the presence of a PFO and a number of clinical conditions, most notably cryptogenic stroke (CS). Read More

Predictors of residual tricuspid regurgitation after percutaneous closure of atrial septal defect.

Eur Heart J Cardiovasc Imaging 2019 Feb;20(2):225-232

Department of Cardiology, Academic Medical Center, Room B2-137, Meibergdreef 9, AZ Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Aims: Functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR) associated with atrial septal defects (ASDs) is frequently present due to right-sided volume-overload. Tricuspid valve (TV) repair is often considered in candidates for surgical ASD closure, and percutaneous TV repair is currently under clinical investigation. In this study, we develop a prediction model to identify patients with residual moderate/severe TR after percutaneous ASD closure. Read More

Transcatheter closure of a sinus venosus atrial septal defect using 3D printing and image fusion guidance.

Catheter Cardiovasc Interv 2018 Aug 13;92(2):353-357. Epub 2018 Jun 13.

Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center, Houston Methodist Hospital, Houston, Texas.

A 63-year-old man with cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma, and coagulopathy was diagnosed with a sinus venosus atrial septal defect (ASD) and partial anomalous pulmonary venous return (PAPVR) of the right upper pulmonary vein (RUPV). Transcatheter repair by positioning a stent graft in the superior vena cava was planned. Based on three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of gated cardiac CTA, a 28 mm × 7 cm Endurant II aortic extension stent graft (Medtronic, MN) was chosen. Read More

Anomalous left subclavian artery from the pulmonary artery in a neonate.

Asian Cardiovasc Thorac Ann 2018 Jul 3;26(6):476-478. Epub 2018 Jun 3.

Miller Children's and Women's Hospital, Memorial Heart and Vascular Institute, Long Beach, CA, USA.

The presence of an isolated left subclavian artery arising from the pulmonary artery in a patient with d-transposition of the great arteries is exceedingly rare. Prior to undertaking repair of this congenital cardiac anomaly, identification of an isolated left subclavian artery originating from the pulmonary artery is imperative in order to plan the appropriate intervention to prevent the development of subclavian artery steal or vertebrobasilar insufficiency. We describe the case of a 5 day-old girl in whom an isolated left subclavian artery arising from the pulmonary artery was detected after surgical entry for repair of transposition of the great arteries.

Usefulness of echocardiographic-fluoroscopic fusion imaging in children with congenital heart disease.

Arch Cardiovasc Dis 2018 Jun - Jul;111(6-7):399-410. Epub 2018 May 28.

Paediatric and Congenital Cardiology, Children's Hospital, M3C CHU Toulouse, Paul Sabatier University, 31059 Toulouse, France.

Background: Transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE) has become indispensable in the catheterization laboratory in the guidance of some percutaneous interventions, as a complementary imaging technique to fluoroscopy. However, the two imaging modalities are presented separately and differently, making interpretation of the anatomical spatial relationships complicated. EchoNavigator (Philips Healthcare, Best, the Netherlands) is an innovative software package, enabling fusion of fluoroscopic and echocardiographic images on the same screen. Read More
