We describe the successful use of long-term biventricular continuous-flow mechanical circulatory support as a bridge to transplantation in a small-framed 63-year-old woman with long-standing nonischemic cardiomyopathy. After placement of a left-sided HeartWare HVAD, persistent right-sided heart failure necessitated implantation of a second HeartWare device for long-term right ventricular support. After 262 days, the patient underwent successful orthotopic heart transplantation and was discharged from the hospital...

Spontaneous coronary artery dissection, a rare cause of acute coronary syndrome, is due to nonatherosclerotic coronary events and is probably underrecognized as a cause of myocardial infarction. The condition typically affects premenopausal women who are otherwise healthy. Among more than 1,200 reported cases, recurrent dissection has been described 63 times, and only 3 reports have documented multiple episodes of dissection involving different vascular territories. We present the case of a woman in her 30s who, over a 9-year period, presented 4 times with coronary dissection in different vascular territories...

A diastolic paradoxical jet flow, often seen in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, is a unique flow from the apex toward the base of the left ventricle during isovolumic relaxation. To date, this phenomenon appears to have been noninvasively detected only on echocardiograms. We report the case of a 43-year-old man with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and a diastolic paradoxical jet flow, in whom cardiac auscultation revealed a soft S4 , a systolic ejection murmur, and a low-pitched early diastolic murmur immediately after S2 at the apex...

Coronary artery aneurysms are abnormal dilations of arterial segments, in some cases associated with underlying atherosclerosis. Although affected patients can be asymptomatic, some are at risk of plaque rupture, dissection, and other complications. Investigations into the optimal management of these vascular malformations are ongoing, because no consensus exists regarding when and how best to intervene. We present the case of a 58-year-old man whose large left main coronary artery aneurysm we ligated and removed during 5-vessel coronary artery bypass grafting...

Direct oral anticoagulants, which include the factor Xa inhibitor rivaroxaban, have some advantages over vitamin K antagonists in regard to stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation. However, no antidotes to reverse the effect of oral anticoagulants are commercially available, which can complicate treating patients in whom reversal is urgent. We faced this challenge in a kidney transplant candidate, a 65-year-old man with end-stage renal disease who had been taking rivaroxaban for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation...

Carotid body tumors are rare neoplasms with malignant potential in 6% to 12.5% of cases, and surgical resection is the only cure. We present the cases of 2 female patients who had expanding, painless, right-sided neck masses; computed tomographic angiograms revealed Shamblin III tumors at the carotid bifurcation. Each patient underwent tumor resection with use of the retrocarotid dissection technique. The tumor specimens were histologically consistent with malignancy, and free margins were achieved. The patients remained free of symptoms, local recurrence, and metastasis 44 and 19 months after their respective procedures...

Serial measurements of coronary plaque volume have been used to evaluate drug efficacy in atherosclerotic progression. However, the usefulness of computed tomography for this purpose is unknown. We investigated whether the change in total plaque volume on coronary computed tomographic angiography is associated with the change in segment plaque volume on intravascular ultrasound. We prospectively enrolled 11 consecutive patients (mean age, 56.3 ± 5 yr; 6 men) who were to undergo serial invasive coronary angiographic examinations with use of grayscale intravascular ultrasound and coronary computed tomography, performed <180 days apart at baseline and from 1 to 2 years later...

Percutaneous balloon pulmonary valvuloplasty is the preferred therapy for pulmonary valve stenosis. However, the designs of the cylindrical balloons historically used for valvuloplasty have limitations, especially in patients who have large pulmonary annular diameters. The hourglass-shaped V8 Aortic Valvuloplasty Balloon may prove to be an effective alternative. The balloon has 2 large bulbous segments that are separated by a narrowed waist. The geometric shape is maintained throughout inflation, improving fixation and enabling broader leaflet opening...

REVIEW
Prity Gupta, Amer Harky, Saleem Jahangeer, Benjamin Adams, Mohamad Bashir
Cardiovascular surgeons have long debated the safe duration of deep hypothermic circulatory arrest during thoracic aortic aneurysm surgery. The rationale for using adjunctive cerebral perfusion (or not) is to achieve the best technical aortic repair with the lowest risk of morbidity and death. In this literature review, we highlight the debates surrounding these issues, evaluate the disparate findings on deep hypothermic circulatory arrest durations and temperatures, and consider the usefulness of adjunctive perfusion...

Experience with cardiac magnetic resonance to evaluate coronary arteries in children and young adult patients is limited. Because noninvasive imaging has advantages over coronary angiography, we compared the effectiveness of these techniques in patients who were being considered for percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation. We retrospectively reviewed the cases of 26 patients (mean age, 12.53 ± 4.85 yr; range, 5-25 yr), all of whom had previous right ventricular-to-pulmonary artery homografts. We studied T2-prepared whole-heart images for coronary anatomy, velocity-encoded cine images for ventricular morphology, and function- and time-resolved magnetic resonance angiographic findings...
