Free-floating right heart thrombus (RHT) is an extreme medical emergency in the context of acute massive pulmonary embolism (PE). Despite the advances in early diagnosis, the management is still very debatable due to lack of consensus. We reported the case of a 66-year-old male, with a history of moderate renal dysfunction and dilated cardiomyopathy, who presented to the emergency department for acute dyspnea. His angiographic magnetic resonance imaging revealed bilateral extensive PE. Transthoracic echocardiography showed RHT with moderate right ventricular dysfunction and pulmonary hypertension...

Cor-triatriatum is uncommon and cor-triatriatum dexter is rarer, and patients may remain asymptomatic in isolated cases especially if the partitioning is mild and nonobstructing. There may be other cardiac defects associated with it which are mostly right-sided cardiac defects such as atrial septal defect, Ebstein anomaly, and pulmonary stenosis. However, left-sided heart anomaly such as aortic regurgitation has been associated with it, but its association with transposition of the great vessels has not been documented before now...

We report a late clinical presentation of an aorto-right ventricular fistula (RVF) extending from the right sinus of Valsalva into the RV outflow tract with significant left-to-right shunt and severe pulmonary hypertension. A three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiogram and a chest-computed tomography scans were performed to better characterize the abnormality. Aorto- RVF can be either congenital or acquired, secondary to endocarditis, Valsalva aneurysm rupture, chest trauma, or aortic dissection.

Myocardial non-compaction (NC) is a rare genetic cardiomyopathy commonly believed to develop an intrauterine arrest of endomyocardial morphogenesis. NC is characterized by markedly hypertrabeculations in left ventricle or both ventricles with deep intertrabecular recesses. NC is usually seen isolated, but sometimes other congenital heart abnormalities may accompany to the myocardial NC. In this article we have presented an adult patient with biventricular myocardial NC cardiomyopathy accompanied by severe valvular pulmonary stenosis and patent foramen ovale...

Severe chronic mitral regurgitation (MR) is known to cause left ventricular volume overload and subsequently left ventricular dilatation. Here, we present a case of a 68-year-old man with severe chronic MR which happened to coexist with atrial septal defect of secundum type leading to the right ventricular dilatation.

Sinus of valsalva aneurysm (SVA) is a rare cardiac disease. The most common complication of SVA is rupture into the right atrium or right ventricle. Rupture into the left chambers is very rare. Patients with ruptured SVA are likely to die of heart failure or endocarditis. We present a 29-year-old man who was hospitalized for hepatic transplantation with rupture of SVA. Transthoracic echocardiography and transesophageal echocardiography showed rupture of a noncoronary SVA into the left atrium. Mitral valve infective endocarditis developed and surgery was planned for the patient, but the patient died due to multiple organ dysfunction syndrome...

We report a case of a woman who presented with worsening shortness of breath due to a migrated ventriculoatrial shunt catheter into the pulmonary artery causing severe pulmonary insufficiency. She underwent surgical catheter removal. The majority of the catheter was easily retrieved; however, there were areas where the catheter was embedded into the myocardium, which would have posed a challenge with an endovascular approach.

In recent years, with an increasing number of central venous access procedures and cardiac implantable electronic device implantation, the incidence of infective endocarditis (IE) has become more prevalent. Two-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography (2D-TTE) and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) are a key part of the evaluation of IE, but advances in three-dimensional echocardiography have enabled a better spatial resolution and visualization of cardiac structures, allowing the identification of any valvular vegetations, abscesses, or nodules...

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common known inherited heart disorder, with a prevalence of 1:500 of the adult population. Etiology of HCM can be heterogeneous, with sarcomeric gene disease as the leading cause in up to 60% of the patients, and with a number of possible different diseases (phenocopies) in about 10%-15% of the patients. Early diagnosis of storage and infiltrative disorders, particularly those with specific treatments (i.e., Fabry disease and/or amyloidosis), means early management and treatment, with a significant impact on patients prognosis...

Aims: The aim of this study is to measure the effect of positive-pressure ventilation on heart chamber dimensions, left ventricular (LV) systolic function, LV diastolic function, right ventricular (RV) systolic function, and RV pressure using transthoracic echocardiography. Settings and Design: This is a prospective study in a single secondary health-care center. Materials and Methods: A total of 107 patients with obstructive sleep apnea on continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy were recruited as participants between April and September 2016...

Background: Elevated mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP) and right heart failure increase mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Objectives: The objective of this study is to determine the prevalence of elevated mPAP in children with CKD compared with matched controls and to ascertain the relationship between elevated mPAP with right ventricular dysfunction and history of hemodialysis. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional comparative study of mPAP and tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion of 21 children with CKD and age- and sex-matched controls asymptomatic for cardiac disease was conducted...

Background: Transthoracic Doppler echocardiographic examination is commonly performed to define the diastolic ventricular function since it is widely available, noninvasive, and inexpensive with respect to other diagnostic imaging modalities. However, data regarding age- and gender-matched reference values are scanty and sometimes conflicting. This study aims to explore the physiologic variations of left ventricular (LV) E/e ' ratio as assessed in a large cohort of healthy adults and to investigate clinical and echocardiographic correlates...

Introduction: Doppler echocardiography with early diastolic transmitral velocity (E)/early mitral annular diastolic velocity (E') ratio has been proposed as the best predictor for evaluating left ventricle (LV) filling pressure. A dimensionless index E/(E' × S') ratio (S' = systolic mitral annulus velocity) resulted in readily, reproducible, and reliable predictor of LV filling pressure. We assessed the prognostic impact of E/E' × S') in patients with asymptomatic heart failure (HF)...

Aim: We employed an echocardiographic (ECHO) system as the backbone for the collection of electrocardiogram (ECG) and heart rate variability (HRV) data. The system was tested using an exercise model in which C57 male mice were exposed to sham or forced wheel running. Methods: Peak/peak (RR) interval was recorded over a 3 min period using the ECG platform of the ECHO system. Isoflurane-anesthetized male mice were divided into two groups ( n = 8/group): sedentary (S) and forced wheel trained (T)...

Background: Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is the most common congenital heart disease, affecting 0.5%-2% of the general population. It is associated not only with notable valvular risk (aortic stenosis and/or regurgitation, endocarditis) but also with aortopathy with a wide spectrum of unpredictable clinical presentations, including aneurysmal dilation of the aortic root and/or ascending thoracic aorta, isthmic coarctation, aortic dissection, or wall rupture. Methods: The REgistro della Valvola Aortica Bicuspide della Società Italiana di ECocardiografia e CArdiovascular Imaging is a retrospective (from January 1, 2010)/prospective, multicenter, observational registry, expected to enroll 3000 patients with definitive diagnosis of BAV made by transthoracic and/or transesophageal echocardiography, computed tomography, cardiovascular magnetic resonance, or at surgery...
