Clin Physiol Funct Imaging 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

Department of Clinical Sciences Lund, Clinical Physiology, Skåne University Hospital, and Lund University, Lund, Sweden.

Limited visualization of the fetal heart and vessels by fetal ultrasound due to suboptimal fetal position, patient habitus and skeletal calcification may lead to missed diagnosis, overdiagnosis and parental uncertainty. Counselling and delivery planning may in those cases also be tentative. The recent fetal cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) reconstruction method utilizing tiny golden-angle iGRASP (iterative Golden-angle RAdial Sparse Parallel MRI) allows for cine imaging of the fetal heart for use in clinical practice.

In patients with an atrial septal defect (ASD) and left ventricular (LV) dysfunction associated with coronary artery disease (CAD), to avoid the development of acute left heart failure (HF) and an increase in myocardial oxygen consumption following ASD closure, it is conceivable that coronary artery revascularization should be performed prior to ASD closure. We report the case of a 67-year-old man with a large secundum ASD and LV ejection fraction of 15.6% resulting from severe ischemic cardiomyopathy and triple-vessel CAD, both of which contributed to biventricular HF characterized by high left-to-right shunt (Qp:Qs of 7.

Usefulness of Focused Screening Echocardiography for Collegiate Athletes.

Am J Cardiol 2019 Jan 26;123(1):169-174. Epub 2018 Sep 26.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Department of Medicine, University of Wisconsin, School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison, Wisconsin. Electronic address:

Sudden cardiac death in a young healthy athlete is a rare but catastrophic event. The American Heart Association preparticipation screening guidelines recommend a focused history and physical without routine imaging or electrocardiogram screening. We hypothesized that a focused echocardiogram can identify structural abnormalities that may lead to sudden cardiac death in athletes, which might otherwise go undetected by history and physical.

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.

Role of animal models for percutaneous atrial septal defect closure.

J Thorac Dis 2018 Sep;10(Suppl 24):S2966-S2974

Department of Paediatric and Adult Congenital Cardiology, Bordeaux University Hospital (CHU), F-33600 Pessac, France.

As for any preclinical development of new implantable device, bench testing has been followed by experimental studies on large animal models for the development of atrial septal defect closure devices. Various models have been used according to studied species (porcine, ovine or canine model) and whether the septal defect was percutaneously or surgically created. Animal models of percutaneous atrial septal defect closure aim to assess the healing process and device endothelialisation, as well as the development of magnetic resonance imaging guided procedures, the short-term effects of volume overload on right ventricular contractility through haemodynamic studies and the understanding of other complications such as nickel hypersensitivity.

Partition of Common Atrioventricular Valve in a Patient With Dextrocardia and Univentricular Circulation.

Semin Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2019 28;31(1):113-115. Epub 2018 Sep 28.

Department of Cardiac Surgery, Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne, Australia; Heart Research Group, Murdoch Children's Research Institute, Melbourne, Australia. Electronic address:

Long-term outcomes in children with atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD) and univentricular palliation are of concern, with <60% survival at 25 years. Common atrioventricular valves (AVV) often become insufficient in patients with univentricular physiology, leading to heart failure. We have recently observed that outcomes of children with AVSD who reach Fontan circulation are not as bad as previously thought, provided that the AVV remains competent. Read More

Coronary-to-pulmonary artery collaterals in pulmonary atresia.

Ann Pediatr Cardiol 2018 Sep-Dec;11(3):328-329

Department of Cardiology, Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology, Trivandrum, Kerala, India.

A 2-month-old baby with ventricular septal defect and pulmonary atresia was found to have coronary-to-pulmonary artery collaterals. Cardiac computed tomography confirmed the coronary collaterals and showed the absence of other systemic to pulmonary artery collaterals. Although these collaterals do not cause coronary ischemia, it is important to delineate them by accurate imaging to plan the appropriate surgical strategy. Read More

Prenatal Diagnosis of Criss-Cross Heart Using 4-Dimensional Color Doppler Rendering.

Pediatr Cardiol 2019 Jan 25;40(1):237-239. Epub 2018 Sep 25.

Department of Neonatal Cardiology, Perinatal Center, Fukuoka Children's Hospital, Fukuoka, Japan.

Criss-cross heart is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly characterized by the crossing of two ventricular inflow streams. We have demonstrated the utility of 4-dimensional color Doppler rendering in diagnosing the criss-cross heart in a fetus. Four-dimensional color Doppler rendering can demonstrate the relative direction of intracardiac blood flows and facilitate recognition of the crossover of inflow streams in the same plane, confirming the criss-cross heart diagnosis in the fetus.
