Combined Percutaneous Procedure in Patient with Lutembacher Syndrome: A Case Report and Real-World Experience Review.

Cardiol Res 2018 Dec 7;9(6):385-391. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Intervention Center, Chung-Ang University Hospital, Seoul 06973, Korea.

Even cardiac surgery has been accepted as the standard therapy for Lutembacher syndrome, a combination of congenital ostium secundum atrial septal defect (ASD) and acquired mitral valve stenosis (MVS), it also owns many limitations and disadvantages. Therefore, seeking for a less invasive therapy with the same efficacy may be worthwhile. Thanks to the development in technology and experience gaining in cardiovascular intervention, the combination of the two proved effective procedures, including percutaneous MVS treatment using balloon valvuloplasty and percutaneous ASD closure using atrial septal occluders, can be utilized as an attractive alternative therapy for these conditions.

Ann Thorac Surg 2018 Oct 25. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Mt. Fuji Shizuoka Children's Hospital Department of Cardiovascular Surgery.

An infant boy with 21 trisomy was diagnosed with complete atrioventricular septal defect (CAVSD)-Rastelli type A with parachute left atrioventricular valve and absent left mural leaflet. Biventricular repair was difficult in infancy because the left ventricular volume and left atrioventricular valve annulus were too small. After two pulmonary artery bandings, the left atrioventricular valve annulus increased to 85% of normal mitral valve, and the left ventricular end-diastolic volume increased to 98% of normal.

Left atrial compliance: an overlooked predictor of clinical outcome in patients with mitral stenosis or atrial fibrillation undergoing invasive management.

Postepy Kardiol Interwencyjnej 2018 19;14(2):120-127. Epub 2018 Jun 19.

Second Department of Cardiology, Jagiellonian University Medical College, Krakow, Poland.

In the assessment of cardiovascular disease, the clinical significance of left atrial (LA) pressure-volume relations has largely been overlooked in contrast to left ventricular (LV) compliance. However, LA compliance has recently gained more attention. Net atrioventricular compliance (), a joint measure of LA and LV compliance, can be calculated non-invasively by a previously validated method using parameters from standard echocardiography.

Unrecognized pre-transplant disseminated Coxiella burnetti infection diagnosed in a post-transplant heart-kidney recipient.

Transpl Infect Dis 2018 Oct 20;20(5):e12962. Epub 2018 Jul 20.

Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Internal Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota.

To the best of our knowledge, we report the first case of pre-transplant unrecognized disseminated Coxiella burnetii infection, unmasked in the post-transplant period leading to both heart and kidney allograft dysfunction. A 59 year old man with a history of simultaneous heart-kidney transplantation due to end stage heart failure from severe aortic regurgitation (AR) and cryoglobulinemic immune complex mediated concentric necrotizing glomerulonephritis (GN), presents with a history of intermittent fevers and fatigue. Prior to transplantation he was treated for multiple episodes of culture negative endocarditis requiring bio-prosthetic valve replacement. Read More

Endovascular Therapy for Rheumatic Mitral and Aortic Valve Disease: Review Article.

Curr Treat Options Cardiovasc Med 2018 Jun 22;20(7):59. Epub 2018 Jun 22.

Division of cardiovascular medicine, University of Wisconsin Hospital and clinics, Clinical Science Center, 600 Highland Ave, Madison, WI, 53792-0001, USA.

Rheumatic heart disease remains a major cause of significant mortality and morbidity in the developing world. Rheumatic mitral and aortic stenosis are the two most common valvular sequelae of acute rheumatic fever. Open surgical procedures with either valve replacement or surgical commissurotomy have largely been replaced by percutaneous commissurotomy and balloon valvuloplasty for selected patients since the early 1980s.
