Rhabdomyoma is a well characterised entity in a neonate. Herein, we report a massive biventricular rhabdomyoma in a neonate presenting with cyanosis and congestive heart failure which was confirmed on autopsy. The report is for documentation of an unusually large tumour.

Transposition of great arteries (TGA) is more commonly associated with D-malposition of great arteries where anterior aorta produces characteristic "I" sign in the three-vessel view (3VV) in fetal heart imaging. We describe two cases with TGA and L-malposition of aorta where 3VV imaging showed an apparently normal arrangement of vessels while outflow tract imaging proved vital in diagnosing transposition anatomy. Apparently, normal 3VV in the presence of disproportionate vessel caliber and inability to produce normal outflow images should raise the suspicion...

#6
Anil Kumar Singhi, Ejaz Ahmad Bari, Sunip Banerjee
Anomalous right coronary artery from left coronary sinus can have dynamic narrowing and kinking causing symptoms of myocardial ischemia and sudden cardiac death. Surgical repair of the anomaly is required in the symptomatic patient because of risk of ischemia or ventricular arrhythmia. Asymptomatic incidentally diagnosed low-risk patients can be closely followed up with exercise restriction as per present guideline.

A modified Blalock-Taussig shunt (mBTS) is often employed to provide pulmonary blood flow in neonates that are born with cyanotic congenital heart defects. However, acute shunt thrombosis can occur in the postoperative period, resulting in profound cyanosis. In this case report, we describe the utility of computed tomographic angiography (CTA) in the management of a neonate with extreme cyanosis after placement of a mBTS while on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. Using CTA, several small clots were identified in the shunt as well as stenosis of the left pulmonary artery; neither of which were identified with echocardiography...

We report our experience with a stent migration after right ventricle outflow tract stenting and converted to patent ductus arteriosus stenting in Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) with severe infundibular stenosis. Finally, the patient achieved to TOF repair, and the migrated stent was removed without any complication.

We report an 8-year-old male child with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), who developed left pulmonary artery (LPA) atresia, following surgical repair of TOF and left pulmonary arterioplasty at the age of 6 years. He underwent successful radiofrequency recanalization and stenting of the LPA. The LPA exhibited satisfactory growth for 3 months, following recanalization and stenting.

A 13-year-old girl presented with exertional dyspnea and congestive heart failure. Echocardiography revealed severe congenital mitral stenosis due to anomalous mitral arcade with severe pulmonary hypertension. She underwent successful mitral valve repair. The case is reported for its rarity.

Femoral venous route is routinely used for percutaneous closure of atrial septal defects (ASDs). However, a situation may arise where transfemoral approach is not feasible. We describe a successful transjugular closure of a moderate-sized ASD in a 49-year-old symptomatic man with interrupted inferior vena cava, using a novel deployment technique, which helped in overcoming difficulties such as maintaining stable sheath position and minimizing risk of air embolism.

We report stenting of coarctation of an angulated right circumflex aortic arch (RCAA) using four Cheatham Platinum stents in a child with Goldenhar syndrome. Difficulties in measuring the accurate length of the curved and narrowed transverse aortic arch marked discrepancy between the luminal diameters of the long narrow transverse arch and wide descending thoracic aorta, increased displacement force caused by the 90° bend between the two parts resulted in repeated stent migrations. We discuss the tips to avoid distal stent migration in the setting of an angulated RCAA...

A 50-year-old, woman with a 2-year history of progressive dysphagia and 2-month history of chronic cough was referred to our center in a state of generalized sepsis. Provisional diagnosis of carcinoma esophagus with tracheoesophagial fistula was made. Evaluation of the patient revealed an aberrant right subclavian artery with retroesophageal course with compression of the esophagus and trachea with fistulous communication in between. The patient was managed with medical stabilization and with feeding jejunostomy, but she succumbed to underlying severe sepsis...

The most complex combinations of congenital cardiac malformations are found in the setting of bodily isomerism. The question remains, however, as to whether evidence of cardiac isomerism is always to be found in the setting of bodily isomerism, also known as "heterotaxy." We have previously shown that, when assessed on the basis of the extent of the pectinate muscles relative to the atrioventricular junctions, there is always isomerism of the atrial appendages in this setting. Doubt has been remained, however, as to whether these cardiac features can accurately be recognized during life...

REVIEW
Oliver Stumper, Gemma Penford
Children with very complex congenital heart disease not amenable to biventricular repair are increasingly being considered for a palliative univentricular care pathway. This involves a staged surgical approach culminating in the Fontan circulation with passive pulmonary blood flow and added resistances. The catheter based hemodynamic assessment at all three stages of this palliation is described in detail. Frequent pitfalls, inherent limitations and potential errors are discussed and clinical examples are illustrated...

BACKGROUND: Global ventricular function often remains normal in patients with beta-thalassemia major (β-TM) until late. Tissue Doppler and strain imaging may be useful to assess regional myocardial function abnormalities in these patients. METHODS: Systolic (Sm), early diastolic (Em), and late diastolic (Am) (Em/Am) myocardial velocities at basal lateral and septal left ventricular (LV) segments, strain (S), and strain rate (SR) in basal and mid LV, right ventricular (RV) and septum were measured in 30 patients (β-TM, 12...

OBJECTIVE: The characteristic rSR' pattern in lead V1 on electrocardiogram (ECG) has been described in association with atrial septal defect (ASD) and right ventricular dilation. We aimed to determine if temporal ECG changes can guide a more discriminate and cost-effective screening during follow-up of isolated secundum ASD. METHODS: Our study population included all pediatric patients followed at the Stollery Children's Hospital with a secundum ASD, not associated with other significant heart disease, between 2004 and 2010...

AIMS: In this study, we examined the differences in cost and effectiveness of various devices used for the closure of small to medium sized patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). SETTING AND DESIGN: We retrospectively studied 116 patients who underwent closure of small PDAs between January 2010 and January 2015. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Three types of devices were used: the Amplatzer duct occluder (ADO) II, the cook detachable coil and the Nit Occlud coil (NOC)...

BACKGROUND: Anomalous origin of left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare congenital malformation. We sought to evaluate in-hospital and mid-term outcomes of patients with a diagnosis of ALCAPA who underwent surgical repair. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study is to evaluate the mid-term outcomes of surgical repair of ALCAPA at our center and to analyze the surgical techniques used. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a retrospective study, we analyzed early and mid-term clinical and echocardiographic data to determine the outcomes of patients who underwent surgical repair of ALCAPA in our institution between 2005 and 2015...
