Cardiac methotrexate-induced lymphoproliferative disorder.

Ann Thorac Surg 2019 Mar 7. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

Division of Cardiovascular Surgery, Saitama Medical University International Medical Center, 1397-1 Yamane, Hidaka-shi, Saitama 3501298, Japan.

Methotrexate has been reported as an immunosuppressive agent associated with lymphoproliferative disorders. We describe the case of a cardiac methotrexate-induced lymphoproliferative disorder that could be differentiated from a sinus of Valsalva aneurysm rupture by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography. The definitive diagnosis was made by a tissue biopsy that was concomitantly performed with sinus of Valsalva aneurysm repair. Read More

Staged coil embolization after thoracic endovascular stent grafting for aneurysmal chronic type B aortic dissection: A case report.

SAGE Open Med Case Rep 2019 12;7:2050313X19828903. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Nagoya Kyoritsu Hospital, Nagoya, Japan.

We herein describe a 38-year-old woman with Marfan syndrome and chronic type A aortic dissection. Computed tomography showed that the sinus of Valsalva and thoracoabdominal aorta had a diameter of 62 and 55 mm, respectively. After 7 months of a Bentall operation and total arch replacement with the elephant trunk technique, we performed thoracic endovascular aortic repair for an aneurysm of the descending aorta, but we preserved the retrograde flow into the false lumen because it supplied vessels perfusing the spinal cord.

Rupture of sinus of valsalva - A 15 years single institutional retrospective review: Preoperative heart failure has an impact on post operative outcome?

Ann Card Anaesth 2019 Jan-Mar;22(1):24-29

Department of Cardiology, Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Bengaluru, Karnataka, India.

Background: We reviewed our experience with ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysms (RSOV) to determine a correlation with preexisting heart failure (HF) and coexisting cardiac lesions (aortic regurgitation [AR] and ventricular septal defect [VSD]) to postoperative left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and postoperative outcomes.

Materials And Methods: Retrospective review of RSOV cases over 15 years showed that RSOV repair was done in 87 patients. We looked for patients who presented with HF and patients having AR and/or VSDs. Read More

Spontaneous rupture of right aortic sinus of Valsalva leading to massive cystic dissection of interventricular septum and complete heart block.

Echocardiography 2018 12 18;35(12):2109-2112. Epub 2018 Oct 18.

Cardiology B Department of CHU Ibn Sina, Rabat, Morocco.

The interventricular septal dissection is an uncommon, and is occasionally associated with sinus of Valsalva aneurysm. A spontaneous dissection with a normal sinus of Valsalva is extremely rare and is mostly a result of a congenital defect. We report the case of a 23-year-old male admitted for complete heart block and presenting as an incidental finding during the TTE multiple and huge cystic-like mass in the interventricular septum (IVS) which is the TTE characteristic of IVS dissection.

Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiovascular Diseases, University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, TN, USA.

Acute rupture of sinus of Valsalva often presents as an acute emergency with significant hemodynamic compromise whereas contained rupture of sinus of Valsalva with a perivalvular hematoma formation is rarely seen. We describe the case of a 63-year-old male who presented with acute shortness of breath and was found to have rupture of sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (SVA) with a perivalvular hematoma and severe aortic regurgitation. We also review the presentation, diagnosis, and management of SVAs. Read More

Patients with a coronary aneurysm alone do not generally exhibit continuous murmurs; however, murmurs may be detected in the presence of a fistula. A 57-year-old woman with chest pain was referred to us with a suspected diagnosis of a ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm owing to the presence of a continuous murmur that was detected on physical examination. However, CT revealed a giant right coronary artery aneurysm draining into the right atrium. Read More

Ruptured Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysm and Gerbode Defects: Patient and Procedural Selection: the Key to Optimising Outcomes.

Curr Cardiol Rep 2018 Aug 20;20(10):90. Epub 2018 Aug 20.

We aim to review the evolution of treatment strategies and the progression towards less invasive management for these conditions.

Recent Findings: While transthoracic echocardiography is often diagnostic, transesophageal echocardiography (2D and 3D) has improved our understanding of these defects and allowed us to more accurately define their anatomy. Read More

Aims: To compare the stiffness index in patients with bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) with first-degree relatives at each segment of the thoracic ascending aorta and to compare segmental analysis of aortic stiffness in association with BAV morphotype and function.

Methods: 219 patients with BAV and 148 first-degree relatives (without BAV) were consecutively included at a reference centre for BAV. Ultrasound assessment of aortic and carotid stiffness was based on the variation of the segmental arterial diameters during the cardiac cycle and on blood pressure. Read More

J Cardiovasc Echogr 2018 Apr-Jun;28(2):141-142

Department of Cardiology, Santa Maria Hospital GVM Care and Research, Bari, Italy.

We report a late clinical presentation of an aorto-right ventricular fistula (RVF) extending from the right sinus of Valsalva into the RV outflow tract with significant left-to-right shunt and severe pulmonary hypertension. A three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiogram and a chest-computed tomography scans were performed to better characterize the abnormality. Aorto- RVF can be either congenital or acquired, secondary to endocarditis, Valsalva aneurysm rupture, chest trauma, or aortic dissection. Read More

A case report of pseudoaneurysm of left sinus of Valsalva invaded into the left ventricle with severe aortic regurgitation.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2018 Jun 7;13(1):63. Epub 2018 Jun 7.

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Jinju Hospital, Gyeongsang National University College of Medicine, Jinju, Republic of Korea.

Background: The pseudoaneurysms of sinus of Valsalva is an uncommon and serious complication of an infection, trauma, or after cardiac surgery or procedure. Pseudoaneurysms of sinus of Valsalva from left is rare. We describe a case of pseudoaneurysm of the left coronary sinus of Valsalva invaded into the left ventricle (LV) diagnosed by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), transesophageal ecoccardiography (TEE), and multiple detector computed tomography (MDCT).

Two rare missense mutations in the fibrillin‑1 gene associated with atypical cardiovascular manifestations in a Chinese patient affected by Marfan syndrome.

Mol Med Rep 2018 Jul 22;18(1):877-881. Epub 2018 May 22.

Department of Cardiology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Yangtze University, Jingzhou, Hubei 434000, P.R. China.

The present report aimed to evaluate the results of screen mutations of the fibrillin (FBN) 1 gene and analyze the symptoms in one Chinese patient clinically diagnosed with Marfan syndrome (MFS). Clinical data were collected and FBN1 gene sequencing was performed. Genomic DNA was extracted from the blood sample of the patient. Read More
