Case Report: Right Heart Failure Mistaken for Obesity-A Fault of Telemedicine.

Front Pediatr 2022 25;10:856911. Epub 2022 Apr 25.

Department of Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Disease, Medical University of Gdańsk, Gdansk, Poland.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, telemedicine has become an important branch of healthcare worldwide. Apart from their undeniable advantages, the virtual visits lack physical examination, which can lead to important diagnostic mistakes. We hereby present a case of a pediatric patient whose weight gain, initially attributed to a sedentary lifestyle was, in fact, due to sub-acute right heart failure in the context of a ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm.

Repair of an ascending aortic aneurysm associated with an anomalous right coronary artery origin.

J Card Surg 2022 May 10. Epub 2022 May 10.

Department of Surgery, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York, USA.

Background: Anomalous right coronary artery (RCA) origin off the ascending aorta, above the level of the sinus of Valsalva, is rare and can be associated with altered hemodynamics, decreased coronary perfusion, and presents unique considerations during intraoperative management in the surgical treatment of concomitant ascending aneurysmal disease.

Case Presentation: A 58-year-old female with prior symptomatic visceral aneurysmal rupture and cerebrovascular disease presented with a 5 cm ascending aortic aneurysm, elevated aortic index, and increased rupture risk factors. She was preoperatively diagnosed with an anomalous, high RCA origin off the ascending aorta 15 mm above the sinotubular junction. Read More

Transcatheter Versus Surgical Closure of Acute Ruptured Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysms with Associated Ventricular Septal Defects.

Pediatr Cardiol 2022 Apr 5. Epub 2022 Apr 5.

Department of Pediatric Cardiology, Institute of Cardio Vascular Diseases, Madras Medical Mission, 4A, Dr J J Nagar, Mogappair, Chennai, 600037, India.

Transcatheter ruptured sinus of valsalva aneurysm (RSOVA) closure is an alternative to surgery. When a restrictive ventricular septal defect (rVSD) coexists, there are doubts about support for an occluder and persistent left ventricular (LV) dilatation. We compared the outcomes of patients from a single centre with rVSD and RSOVA after surgery or transcatheter intervention in the past 8 years in this study. Read More

Rupture of sinus of Valsalva aneurysm: a rare cause of acute ischaemic chest pain in the emergency department.

BMJ Case Rep 2022 Apr 1;15(4). Epub 2022 Apr 1.

Emergency Medicine, All India Institute of Medical Sciences - Rishikesh, Rishikesh, Uttarakhand, India.

Acute chest pain is a leading cause of emergency department (ED) visits in the adult population. However, patients with a life-threatening cause of chest pain comprise only a small fraction, hence identification of those who need immediate intervention is very important. One rare cause is rupture of the aneurysm, which may present with a wide variety of symptomatology, including anginal chest pain. Read More

Department of Neurology, Kyung Hee University College of Medicine, Kyung Hee University Hospital at Gangdong, Republic of Korea.

Identification of the precise cause is fundamental to the secondary prevention of acute ischemic stroke. Several uncommon causes of stroke have been identified as a result of the attempts made to identify the cause of a cryptogenic stroke. However, unless proper protocol is followed each time, without missing any steps, it might not be possible to accurately determine the cause of strokes. Read More

Case Report: A Giant Left-Ventricular Intramural Pseudoaneurysm Arise From Ruptured Left Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysm.

Front Cardiovasc Med 2021 9;8:753627. Epub 2021 Dec 9.

Department of Radiology, Tianjin Chest Hospital, Tianjin, China.

In this report, we present a case study of an extremely rare left sinus Valsalva aneurysm (SVA) rupture into the left-ventricular myocardium. Acute ozone inhalation and long-term hypertension are possible contributors to the condition. Utilizing multimodal cardiovascular imaging techniques [echocardiogram, computed tomography (CT), and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR)], a large, left-ventricular, intramural pseudoaneurysm (IPA) arising from the ruptured left SVA, was clearly observed anatomically and functionally.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Amsterdam University Medical Center, Meibergdreef 9, 1105 AZ, Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Sinus of Valsalva aneurysms are abnormal bulges of the aortic root caused by a tissue deficiency resulting in an enlargement of the aortic root in the area between the aortic annulus and the sinotubular junction. Frequently, sinus of Valsalva aneurysms are asymptomatic. However, sinus of Valsalva aneurysms can also be potentially fatal due to their risk of rupture. Read More
