Zubair Ahmed Khan, Muhammad Rizwan Sardar, Simon K Topalian
Calcific pericarditis (CP) is a rare disease which results from long-standing pericardial inflammation. Pericardial calcification may completely or partially encase the ventricles, resulting in impaired diastolic filling. We present a case of a 53-year-old male who was incidentally found to have annular CP resulting in external compression of a large territory diagonal branch (D1) reaching the apex with likely chronically occluded left anterior descending artery with collateral circulation from the right coronary artery with hemodynamic compromise on coronary angiography...

Williams-Beuren syndrome is a multisystem genetic disorder caused by hemizygous deletion on chromosome 7q11.23, encompassing about 28 genes including the elastin gene, ELN. Cardiovascular abnormalities are frequent and are related to elastin insufficiency. These abnormalities include supravalvular aortic stenosis (SVAS) in 70% of case, pulmonic valve stenosis, and renal artery stenosis. Definitive therapy for supravalvar aortic stenosis consists of surgical correction of the arteriopathies. Outcomes after surgical correction of SVAS depend on the extent of the arteriopathy and the presence of other associated lesions...

Myocardial clefts are rare incidental findings without clinical relevance up to now. The recognition of this imaging entity is of crucial importance to avoid misdiagnosis and even more in the context of coronary artery disease.

The case of a 24-year-old male with complaints of migraine headaches was referred for echocardiography. The rest of medical history was unremarkable. Agitated saline contrast bubble study showed evidence of a right to left intracardiac shunt, probably secondary to a patent foramen ovale. Results of a transesophageal echocardiogram suggested the possibility of an anomalous venous circulation and eventually identified as anomalous left-sided superior vena cava with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.

Ahmed Ali Alderazi, Mary Lynch
BACKGROUND: In response to growing concerns regarding the overuse of coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) in the clinical setting, multiple societies, including the American College of Cardiology Foundation, have jointly published revised criteria regarding the appropriate use of this imaging modality. However, previous research indicates significant discrepancies in the rate of adherence to these guidelines. AIM: To assess the appropriateness of CCTA referrals in a tertiary cardiac center in Bahrain...

AIM: This is a prospective multicenter registry designed to evaluate the incidence of adverse cardiovascular events in Middle Eastern patients undergoing percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). The registry was also designed to determine the predictors of poor outcomes in such patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: We enrolled 2426 consecutive patients who underwent PCI at 12 tertiary care centers in Jordan between January 2013 and February 2014. A case report form was used to record data prospectively at hospital admission, discharge, and 12 months of follow-up...

Coronary perforation is a potentially fatal complication during percutaneous coronary intervention. Reports have shown that it occurs in 0.2 to 0.6% of all patients undergoing the procedures. Although the frequency of coronary perforation is low, it is a serious and potentially life-threatening situation that warrants prompt recognition and management. Here we present a case of distal coronary perforation, and review the management of coronary perforation in the current practice.

Kathy Edelman, Angel López-Candales
A case of a patient presenting with an acute myocardial infarction is presented. A transthoracic echocardiographic examination revealed an abnormal color flow signal that traversed the myocardial wall from a large inferior aneurysm and initially considered to be a ventricular septal defect. However, further echocardiographic manipulation utilizing modified views along with sequential injections of both agitated saline and Definity(®) proved very useful to identify a pseudoaneurysm. There was no further need for any other diagnostic test, and the patient was treated surgically, undergoing successful repair of the pseudoaneurysm as well as coronary artery bypass grafting of the left coronary artery...

In India, stab injury is not uncommon, but identifying potential life threatening conditions in the emergency room (ER) and initiating prompt treatment are challenging. This is a case report of a young patient who presented to the ER with assault injury to the chest and shock; timely extended focused assessment with sonography for trauma helped to fast-track the patient to the operating room. A brief review of diagnosis and management of penetrating cardiac injury is presented herewith.

Embolization due to blast injury with projectiles entering the bloodstream from the heart is a rare event that is unlikely to be suspected during the initial assessment of trauma patients. We report a case in which a missile penetrating the heart chambers managed to embolize and occlude the right common femoral artery. This was successfully managed by means of a multidisciplinary approach that included exploration, cardiorrhaphy, and embolectomy.
