Identification of multilevel right-to-left shunting in a dog using nuclear scintigraphy imaging.

J Vet Cardiol 2020 May 4;30:1-6. Epub 2020 May 4.

Purdue University, College of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, 625 Harrison Street, West Lafayette, IN 47907-2026, USA.

A 27-month-old male neutered French bulldog that was originally diagnosed with tricuspid valve dysplasia and a bidirectional shunting patent foramen ovale was evaluated for progressive polycythemia and exertional cyanosis. There was a high clinical suspicion for a right-to-left shunting patent ductus arteriosus, but given the presence of agitated saline within the left atrium, left ventricle, ascending aorta, and abdominal aorta from the previously diagnosed bidirectional shunting patent foramen ovale, a definitive diagnosis could not be made. The use of dynamic and static nuclear scintigraphy imaging using technetium-labeled macroaggregated albumin (Tc-MAA) allowed a definitive diagnosis to be made in this animal with multilevel right-to-left shunting as well as quantifying the severity of the right-to-left shunt in a minimally invasive and cost-effective manner.

Management of Late-Presenting Congenital Combined Heart Defect - Bicuspid Aortic Valve and Ventricular Septal Aneurysm.

Am J Case Rep 2020 Mar 13;21:e919766. Epub 2020 Mar 13.

Department of Cardiac Surgery, University Hospital "St. Ekaterina", Sofia, Medical University, Sofia, Bulgaria.

BACKGROUND Bicuspid aortic valve is the most common congenital heart malformation, encountered in 1-2% of the population, while interventricular septal defect and patent ductus arteriosus are the most common congenital malformations associated with bicuspid aortic valve. Although bicuspid valve can have no clinical manifestation, patients with bicuspid valve are prone to develop vascular abnormalities. Aortic dilatation is the most common of these abnormalities, which in turn can lead to serious complications and often requires surgical treatment. Read More

High-resolution iris and retinal imaging in multisystemic smooth muscle dysfunction syndrome due to a novel Asn117Lys substitution in ACTA2: a case report.

BMC Ophthalmol 2020 Feb 24;20(1):68. Epub 2020 Feb 24.

Centre for Ophthalmology and Visual Science (incorporating Lions Eye Institute), The University of Western Australia, 2 Verdun Street, Nedlands, WA, 6009, Australia.

Background: Congenital mydriasis and retinal arteriolar tortuosity are associated with the life-threatening multisystemic smooth muscle dysfunction syndrome (MSMDS) due to mutations in the gene, ACTA2, which encodes alpha-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA). Previous reports attributed MSMDS-related congenital mydriasis to the absence of iris sphincter muscle. Similarly, it has been hypothesized that abnormal proliferation of the vascular smooth muscle cells causes the marked tortuosity of retinal arterioles in MSMDS. Read More

Prostaglandin E in a preterm infant with coarctation of the aorta.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Sep 18;12(9). Epub 2019 Sep 18.

Birmingham Children's Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Birmingham, UK.

Prostaglandins are widely used in aortic coarctation to maintain ductal patency and preserve systemic perfusion until surgical intervention can be performed. Although the short-term use of prostaglandins to ameliorate aortic narrowing in neonates with a closed ductus has been reported, it has not been described as a longer term therapy in extremely preterm neonates. A 27-week gestation baby weighing 560 g presented at 40 days of age with coarctation and a closed ductus arteriosus. Read More

Early prediction of spontaneous Patent Ductus Arteriosus (PDA) closure and PDA-associated outcomes: a prospective cohort investigation.

BMC Pediatr 2019 09 13;19(1):333. Epub 2019 Sep 13.

Center for Perinatal Research, Abigail Wexner Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, Ohio, USA.

Background: Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), the most commonly diagnosed cardiovascular condition in preterm infants, is associated with increased mortality and harmful long-term outcomes (chronic lung disease, neurodevelopmental delay). Although pharmacologic and/or interventional treatments to close PDA likely benefit some infants, widespread routine treatment of all preterm infants with PDA may not improve outcomes. Most PDAs close spontaneously by 44-weeks postmenstrual age; treatment is increasingly controversial, varying markedly between institutions and providers. Read More

Anomalous aortic origin of the pulmonary arteries: Case series and literature review.

Ann Pediatr Cardiol 2019 Sep-Dec;12(3):248-253

Department of Imaging, Bambino Gesù Children's Hospital IRCCS, Rome, Italy.

Anomalous origin of the pulmonary arteries from the ascending aorta is a rare, but severe clinical entity necessitating a scrupulous evaluation. Either the right or the left pulmonary arteries can arise directly from the ascending aorta while the other pulmonary artery retains its origin from the right ventricular outflow tract. Such a finding can be isolated or can coexist with several congenital heart lesions. Read More

Endocarditis and bacterial brain abscess in a young woman with a single atrium, patent ductus arteriosus, and Eisenmenger syndrome: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Sep;98(36):e17044

Department of Cardiology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, China.

Rationale: A single atrium is a rare congenital heart disease (CHD) involving zero atrial septal traces and preserved intact ventricular septum and atrioventricular valves, requiring careful surgical intervention. However, developing to Eisenmenger syndrome (ES) makes the surgery complicated. Based on bidirectional cardiac shunting, vegetation easily develops in case of bacterial infection. Read More

The bridging bronchus: A comprehensive review of a rare, potentially life-threatening congenital airway anomaly associated with cardiovascular defects.

Pediatr Pulmonol 2019 12 29;54(12):1895-1904. Epub 2019 Aug 29.

Seattle Science Foundation, Seattle, Washington DC.

The bridging bronchus is a rare congenital airway anomaly in which the right upper lobe of the lung is supplied by the right main bronchus while the right lower lobe, and often the right middle lobe is supplied by an aberrant bronchus arising from the left main bronchus. The aberrant bronchus crosses (bridges) the lower part of the mediastinum, hence the term bridging bronchus (BB). This potentially life-threatening condition, usually accompanied by diffuse or focal airway stenosis, commonly presents with signs and symptoms related to large airway obstruction, such as respiratory distress, apnea, wheezing, stridor, and recurrent respiratory tract infections.

Circumferential and radial deformation assessment in premature infants: Ready for primetime?

Echocardiography 2019 08 5;36(8):1532-1539. Epub 2019 Aug 5.

Department of Neonatology, The Rotunda Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.

Background: Speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) is a validated method to measure longitudinal deformation in premature infants, but there is a paucity of data on STE-derived circumferential and radial strain in this population. We assessed the feasibility and reproducibility of circumferential and radial deformation measurements in premature infants.

Methods: In a prospective study of 40 premature infants (<29 weeks of gestation at birth), STE-derived circumferential and radial strain, systolic strain rate (SRs), early diastolic strain rate (SRe), and late diastolic strain rate (SRa) were measured on day 2 and day 8. Read More

Lung Perfusion Scintigraphy in Eisenmenger Syndrome Due to Patent Ductus Arteriosus.

Clin Nucl Med 2019 Nov;44(11):879-880

From the Department of Diagnostic Radiology, Kitasato University School of Medicine, Kanagawa, Japan.

Eisenmenger syndrome refers to the elevation of pulmonary arterial pressure to the systemic level caused by an increased pulmonary vascular resistance with right-to-left shunt through an intracardiac or aortopulmonary communication. A 36-year-old woman with Eisenmenger syndrome due to patent ductus arteriosus underwent Tc-MAA lung perfusion scintigraphy to evaluate right-to-left shunt. Whole-body imaging visualized extrapulmonary activity in both kidneys, spleen, and intestinal tract, confirming the presence of right-to-left shunt. Read More
