Anterior Inferior Cerebellar Aneurysm Treated by Aneurysm Resection and Intracranial Artery Anastomosis : A Case Report and Literature Review.

Front Surg 2021 25;8:669433. Epub 2021 May 25.

Department of Neurosurgery, First Affiliated Hospital of Guangxi Medical University, Nanning, China.

Anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA) aneurysms are relatively rare in clinical practice, accounting for <1% of all intracranial arteries. After the diagnosis and location are confirmed by angiography, magnetic resonance, and other imaging examinations, interventional, or surgical treatment is often used, but some complex aneurysms require reconstructive surgery. An 8-year-old male child was admitted to the hospital due to sudden disturbance of consciousness for 2 weeks. Read More

Aneurysmal and obstructive lesions of the left ventricular outflow: evaluation on multidetector computed tomography angiography.

Pol J Radiol 2021 9;86:e195-e203. Epub 2021 Apr 9.

All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

The left ventricular outflow is an anatomically complex region situated between the anterior leaflet of the mitral valve and the left ventricular aspect of the muscular and membranous interventricular septum. It gives rise to the aorta, provides support to the aortic valvular cusps, and houses important components of the conduction system. The left ventricular outflow handles high pressures and pressure variations and is subsequently affected by a variety of aetio-pathological conditions. Read More

Isolated Ventricular Septal Aneurysm: A Differential Diagnosis for a Right Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysm.

Am J Case Rep 2021 May 23;22:e930930. Epub 2021 May 23.

Department of Cardiology, Ascension Providence Hospital, Southfield, MI, USA.

BACKGROUND A ventricular septal aneurysm (VSA) is rare and almost always an incidental finding on cardiac imaging. It is rarely an isolated phenomenon and is more commonly associated with other forms of congenital heart disease such a ventricular septal defect (VSD). Differentiating a ventricular septal aneurysm from an aneurysm of the right sinus of Valsalva is crucial as the latter usually has a more aggressive course and may require surgical intervention.

Dual-energy Computed Tomography Delayed Myocardial Enhancement in the Diagnostic Dilemma of True versus False Left Ventricular Aneurysm - A Case Report.

J Clin Imaging Sci 2021 16;11:20. Epub 2021 Apr 16.

Department of Cardiology and Angiology, National Institute for Cardiovascular Diseases, Bratislava, Slovakia, Europe.

The aim of this case report is to show the capability of cardiac computed tomography (CT) in combination with dual-energy CT (DECT) delayed myocardial enhancement to support diagnostic decision making in the complicated differential diagnosis of true versus false left ventricle (LV) aneurysm, as well as provide additional information that can influence overall patient outcome. We present a 71-year-old obese patient with metabolic syndrome, stable chronic coronary syndrome with three-vessel disease, and recent chest discomfort.

Case Report: F-FDG PET-CT for Diagnosing Prosthetic Device-Related Infection in an Infant With CHD.

Front Pediatr 2021 8;9:584741. Epub 2021 Mar 8.

Department of Pediatrics, Kagoshima University, Kagoshima, Japan.

Patients who have undergone cardiac surgery using prosthetic devices have an increased risk of developing prosthetic device-related infection and mediastinitis. However, accurate diagnosis of prosthetic device-related infection can be difficult to evaluate and treat with antibiotic therapy alone. In recent years, F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (F-FDG PET-CT) has made promising contributions to detect infective endocarditis, pacemaker infections, or other inflammations.
