Prenatal Diagnosis of Isolated Atrioventricular Discordance and Ventriculoarterial Concordance and Double-Outlet Right Ventricle in Situs Inversus: Case Report and Review of the Literature.

Pediatr Cardiol 2020 Dec 24;41(8):1807-1810. Epub 2020 Sep 24.

Department of Pediatrics, Section of Pediatric Cardiology, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL, USA.

Atrioventricular (AV) discordance and ventriculoarterial (VA) concordance in the setting of visceral situs inversus are one of the rarest forms of cardiac malformations. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of prenatal diagnosis of such rare cardiac anatomy in association with double-outlet right ventricle on fetal echocardiography. The physiology of this cardiac anomaly is similar to that of transposition of the great arteries, and the best surgical option is the atrial switch operation. Read More

Unilateral Situs Inversus of the Optic Disc in a Patient With Retinal Arteriolar Tortuosity.

Ophthalmic Surg Lasers Imaging Retina 2020 09;51(9):533-535

Familial retinal arteriolar tortuosity (fRAT) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder that is characterized by tortuosity of the second- and third-order arterioles around the posterior pole of retina. Most cases with fRAT lack associated systemic vascular abnormality. Situs inversus, a congenital anomaly, features emergence of retinal vessels from the optic nerve head in a nasal direction, usually occurs bilaterally. Read More

Assessment of Myocardial Viability Using Nuclear Medicine Imaging in Dextrocardia.

J Nucl Med Technol 2020 Dec 4;48(4):372-377. Epub 2020 Sep 4.

Department of Nuclear Medicine, King Edward Memorial Hospital, Seth G.S. Medical College, Mumbai, India.

Imaging of dextrocardia in humans requires an understanding of the orientation of the heart chambers and walls. There are many types of cardiac malpositioning, such as dextrocardia (with or without situs inversus), mesocardia, and levocardia. Myocardial perfusion scintigraphy of dextrocardia has been explained in case reports and imaging atlases; however, myocardial viability assessment using nuclear medicine imaging techniques is less documented in the literature.

[Right aortic arch with left descending aorta: a rare cause of dysphagia].

Pan Afr Med J 2020 13;36:17. Epub 2020 May 13.

Centre des Urgences de Yaoundé, Yaoundé, Cameroun.

Aortic abnormalities are a rare cause of dysphagia in children, adolescents, young adults and in the elderly. In these cases, vascular abnormalities commonly include aberrant right subclavian artery, left subclavian artery originating from the right aortic arch and, more rarely, from the right aortic arch with thoracic aorta on the left. Dysphagia, also known as "dysphagia lusoria", is due to the compression of the esophagus caused by one or several congenital vascular abnormalities and can occur in childhood or later in adulthood.

Unconventional deployment of atrial septal occluder in a patient with atrial septal defect, dextrocardia, and interrupted inferior vena cava.

Cardiol Young 2020 Aug 29;30(8):1206-1208. Epub 2020 Jun 29.

Department of Cardiology, Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences, Hyderabad, India.

An atrial septal defect is a rare anomaly in patients with interrupted inferior vena cava, which renders the percutaneous intervention more complex; and hence, innovative approaches should be sought. Dextrocardia further complicates the procedure, and traditional atrial septal device deployment methods cannot be employed. We report a successful percutaneous secundum atrial septal defect closure by a novel deployment strategy along with balloon dilation of associated severe valvular pulmonary stenosis in a patient with dextrocardia and interrupted inferior vena cava.

Urgent cholecystectomy in patient with left-sided gallbladder Case report and review of the literature.

Ann Ital Chir 2020 May 25;9. Epub 2020 May 25.

Introduction: Sinistroposition of the gallbladder, or true left-sided gallbladder (LSG) without situs viscerum inversus, is a rare congenital anatomical variant where the gallbladder is located to the left of round/falciform ligament. It can be associated with anomalies of the biliary tree, portal system and hepatic vascularization. The surgical management of a LSG could be challenging even for an experienced operator, being usually an incidental intraoperative finding. Read More

Rare variants in dynein heavy chain genes in two individuals with situs inversus and developmental dyslexia: a case report.

BMC Med Genet 2020 05 1;21(1):87. Epub 2020 May 1.

Department of Medicine, Solna, Karolinska Institutet, Solnavägen 30, 171 76 Solna, Stockholm, Sweden.

Background: Developmental dyslexia (DD) is a neurodevelopmental learning disorder with high heritability. A number of candidate susceptibility genes have been identified, some of which are linked to the function of the cilium, an organelle regulating left-right asymmetry development in the embryo. Furthermore, it has been suggested that disrupted left-right asymmetry of the brain may play a role in neurodevelopmental disorders such as DD. Read More

Dextrocardia, situs solitus, inlet ventricular septal defect (VSD), and iatrogenic tricuspid regurgitation (TR)-A surgical perspective.

J Card Surg 2020 Jun 29;35(6):1383-1386. Epub 2020 Apr 29.

Department of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery, Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh, India.

Dextrocardia with situs solitus is a rare congenital anomaly, often associated with intra- or extracardiac malformations. A clear understanding of the spatial orientation of the chambers of the heart for planning surgical approach, is imperative. Access to the right side of the heart, especially for repair of the tricuspid valve can be challenging. Read More
