FIVHeMA: Intraventricular fibrinolysis versus external ventricular drainage alone in aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage: A randomized controlled trial.

Neurochirurgie 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Department of neurosurgery, CHU de Caen, 14000 Caen, France; Inserm U1237 'physiopathology & imaging of neurological disorders', university of Caen Normandy, 14000 Caen, 14000, France; Université Caen Normandie, Medical School, 14000 Caen, France.

Introduction: Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a devastating form of stroke, which often causes acute hydrocephalus requiring the insertion of an external ventricular drain (EVD). A major complication of aneurysmal SAH is delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI). As DCI is linked to the presence of blood within the subarachnoid space, it has been hypothesized that removing this blood may decrease the risk of DCI. Read More

Városmajori Szív és Érgyógyászati Klinika, Szívsebészeti Profil, Semmelweis Egyetem 1122 Budapest, Városmajor utca 68.

Introduction: Although surgical specialties utilize static models for preoperative planning, the evolution of dynamic planning methods and computer simulations created the opportunity for the introduction of dynamic parameters in cardiac surgery. Our aim was to apply 3D models in cardiac surgical practice, predicting fluid dynamic results, ventricular shape, volume and function before the operation.

Methods: Using a script developed by us, the raw DICOM files were imported, the dilated left ventricle was modeled and fluid dynamic parameters were simulated, such as flow kinematic and profile analysis, turbulence calculation and myocardial response to shear stress. Read More

"Frozen Apex" Repair of a Dilated Cardiomyopathy.

Semin Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2018 Winter;30(4):406-411. Epub 2018 Aug 16.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, Iseikai Hospital, Osaka, Japan.

We try to make surgical ventricular restoration simpler and more adjustable to safely enhance ventricular function. In eight patients with DiDonato type III dilated cardiomyopathy, we applied a few short-axis purse-string sutures to the endocardial side of the left ventricular apex ("Frozen-Apex" restoration) to make a smaller, cone-shaped apex, based on the concept that the left ventricular apex is important in its existence, but not in its function. The procedure took less than 15 minutes in all the patients. Read More

[Risk factors for the development of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias following surgical reconstruction of the left ventricle].

Angiol Sosud Khir 2018;24(2):158-163

Federal Centre of Cardiovascular Surgery under the RF Ministry of Public Health, Penza, Russia.

Death in patients with postinfarction aneurysms of the left ventricle (LV) is mainly caused by life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias - ventricular tachycardias (VTs) and ventricular fibrillations (VFs). Surgical reconstruction of the LV may potentially lead to disruption of the re-entry mechanism, lying at the basis of ventricular tachyarrhythmias. A series of authors demonstrated high efficacy of such procedures as endocardectomy and radiofrequency ablation of the borderline zone of the LV. Read More

Rev Med Brux 2018 May 31. Epub 2018 May 31.

Service de Cardiologie, Hôpital Civil Marie Curie, C.H.U. de Charleroi.

The false aneurysm of the left ventricle is a rare complication after a mitral valvular surgery. It results from the rupture of the ventricular wall inside an adhering pericardium, thus constituting a cavity whose wall is devoid of myocardial elements and communicates with the ventricle by a large collar. Its clinical presentation remains not very specific with an insidious spontaneous evolution which is generally done towards rupture with sudden death by tamponade. Read More

Interventional Radiology, Addenbrookes Hospital, Hills Road, Cambridge, CB2 0QQ, UK.

Branched thoracic aortic aneurysm repair requires arterial access from above the diaphragm in order to insert the visceral branches. This is routinely performed from the subclavian, axillary or carotid arteries and less commonly direct thoracic aorta puncture. The left ventricular apex is an alternative access route which is commonly used for percutaneous aortic valve replacement and rarely used for EVAR, FEVAR and TEVAR access. Read More

Pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum and congenital left ventricular aneurysm.

Cardiol Young 2018 Jun 22;28(6):876-878. Epub 2018 Apr 22.

Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital,Saint Petersburg,FL,USA.

Pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum and congenital left ventricular aneurysms are both rare, representing <1 and <0.1% of CHD, respectively. The association of left ventricular aneurysms and pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum has been documented in the literature, but all the previous case reports have involved children with acquired left ventricular aneurysms.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with a large apical ventricular aneurysm and mural thrombus.

Glob Cardiol Sci Pract 2018 Mar 14;2018(1). Epub 2018 Mar 14.

Frederik Meijer Heart and Vascular Institute, Spectrum Health, Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is characterized by increased left ventricular wall thickness in the absence of any other identifiable cause of thickness. It predisposes the patient to increased risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD) due to fatal arrhythmias. Approximately 2% of the HCM patients have left ventricular apical aneurysm. Read More

Multimodality Imaging and Clinical Significance of Congenital Ventricular Outpouchings: Recesses, Diverticula, Aneurysms, Clefts, and Crypts.

J Cardiovasc Echogr 2018 Jan-Mar;28(1):9-17

Department of Cardiology, Misericordia Hospital, Grosseto, Italy.

The high spatial resolution of cardiac computed tomography (CT) and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) permit the diagnosis of congenital ventricular outpouchings (CVOs), including congenital ventricular diverticula (CVD), congenital ventricular aneurysms (CVA), clefts, and crypts. A unique classification has not been established, and these terms are used interchangeably with confounding terminology. Moreover, their significance is not univocal. Read More

Interventional therapies for relief of obstruction in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: discussion and proposed clinical algorithm.

Hosp Pract (1995) 2018 Apr 6;46(2):58-63. Epub 2018 Mar 6.

a Division of Cardiology, Department of Medicine , Westchester Medical Center , Valhalla , NY , USA.

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), a disease formerly thought rare in clinical practice, is now believed to affect as many as 1 in 300 individuals, regardless of race or gender. Rising awareness, coupled with advanced imaging and the development of dedicated HCM centers of excellence, has led to more patients coming to clinical presentation. While some are diagnosed at a young age, others are diagnosed in middle age or well into advanced age. Read More
