The presence of situs inversus totalis (full reversal of internal organs) in twins is briefly reviewed. Information gathered from 35-year-old monozygotic (MZ) female twin pair discordant for this condition is presented. This is followed by summaries of research on the frequency of trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) in twins, the first case of MZ twin concordance for bilateral coronoid hyperplasia, prenatal hormonal effects in mixed-sex non-human primate litters, and links between insurance mandates and twinning following in vitro fertilization...

INTRODUCTION: Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare congenital condition characterized by a complete transposition of thoracic and abdominal organs. Here, we present two successful cases of left thoracoscopic esophagectomy in the prone position for SIT-associated esophageal cancer. PRESENTATION OF CASE: Our first case was of an 82-year-old man who underwent a left thoracoscopic esophagectomy in the prone position, followed by hand-assisted laparoscopic gastric mobilization...

Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a congenital condition consisting of a mirror image of transposition of the abdominal and thoracic organs occurring in about 1:5000 to 1:10 000 adults. We report on a 60-year-old male with a single colorectal liver metastasis in the Segment 7. The patients underwent a totally laparoscopic sub-segmentectomy. Intraoperative approach on a reverse posterior segment was difficult because of left-sided position of the liver. Postoperative course was uneventful and the patient was discharged after 5 days...

ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in situs inversus dextrocardia is a rare combination and poses many challenges in terms of diagnosis and management. These include the early detection of dextrocardia as well as the interpretation of the ECG. In addition, percutaneous coronary intervention could be challenging in the setting of dextrocardia because of diffi culty in cannulating the coronary arteries, selection of catheters, catheter manipulation, image acquisition and interpretation.

The article is devoted to biographies of three Russian physicians of the Silver Age (a period in the History of Russian culture between 1890 and 1917). They made early, significant and internationally recognized contribution into medical science and became eponymous, although social disasters of the twentieth century caused deep impact on their subsequent lives and careers, so their role was shadowed from global medical community. The article analyzes biographies and academic achievements of A-F.K. Siewert (aka: Zivert, Ziwert, von Siewert) (1872-1922), known for first description of the hereditary dyskinesia of cilia (as a triad of: situs inversus of the viscera, abnormal frontal sinuses producing sinusitis and bronchiectasis); S...

INTRODUCTION: Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a condition where the internal organs or organ systems are located contra-laterally to the norm, forming a mirror image. Laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG) is an effective bariatric procedure that has become more common over the last two decades. We report on a morbidly obese patient with SIT who underwent a successful LSG. CASE REPORT: A 54-year-old female morbidly obese patient (136k; 167cm; body mass index (BMI): 48kg/m(2)) was admitted for bariatric surgery...

Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare clinical entity which is characterized by a complete reverse anatomy of the thoracic cage and abdomen. There are a few reports of patients with SIT and lung cancer. The number of the cases that have been treated surgically is also very small. We report a case of an 80 years old patient who underwent left lower lobectomy after staging with uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) and mediastinoscopy.

BACKGROUND: Dextrocardia is a congenital anomaly, which may have coexistent coronary artery disease (CAD), arrhythmias and conventional indications for device therapy. However, the implantation of transvenous leads can be technically challenging and the approach needs to be tailored to the patient's individual anatomy. CASE PRESENTATION: A 54-year-old male with dextrocardia situs inversus and ischemic left ventricular dysfunction developed ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation...

The forelimbs and hindlimbs of vertebrates are bilaterally symmetric. The mechanisms that ensure symmetric limb formation are unknown but they can be disrupted in disease. In Holt-Oram Syndrome (HOS), caused by mutations in TBX5, affected individuals have left-biased upper/forelimb defects. We demonstrate a role for the transcription factor Tbx5 in ensuring the symmetric formation of the left and right forelimb. In our mouse model, bilateral hypomorphic levels of Tbx5 produces asymmetric forelimb defects that are consistently more severe in the left limb than the right, phenocopying the left-biased limb defects seen in HOS patients...

BACKGROUND: Over the past few decades, reports have demonstrated the feasibility of liver transplantation in adult patients with situs inversus. However, this disease entity remains rare and experience remains limited in adult recipients with situs inversus undergoing transplantation. METHODS: A 23-year-old woman with situs inversus totalis and end-stage liver disease secondary to congenital biliary atresia was referred to our center and underwent a successful orthotopic liver transplantation...

A 79-year-old man with situs inversus and dextrocardia underwent catheter ablation of symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI), using second-generation cryoballoon under Ensite NavX system guidance, was performed successfully in a reverse manner, which required short procedure and fluoroscopy times, as required in a PVI performed on a normal heart without any complications. Cryoballoon-based PVI under Ensite NavX guidance was feasible and safe to achieve a favorable outcome in this patient with abnormal anatomy...

Situs inversus is a rare congenital anomaly, which is characterized by right sided heart (Dextrocardia) and inversely rotated visceral organs of abdomen. In present case, the patient reported with G3p2l2, 34 weeks of gestational period along with breathlessness accompanied and labour pains. On further investigation, she was diagnosed as dextrocardia with situs inversus and moderate pulmonary artery hypertension along with severe iron deficiency anaemia. Patient had normal vaginal delivery with intra-partum and post-partum period...

Transposition of the great arteries occurs rarely in patients with mirror image dextrocardia and situs inversus, while the combination with severe coarctation of the descending aorta (CoA) makes the anatomy even more unusual. Therefore, it is not surprising that a case with such unusual and complicated anatomy presents unique problems when a primary definitive correction is attempted. We report a patient with situs inversus totalis and complex congenital heart disease including transposition of the great arteries and severe CoA who underwent successful complete, single-stage, anatomic correction...

REVIEW
Trushar Gajjar, Jinaga Nageswar Rao, Neelam Desai
Crisscross heart is a rare cardiac malformation characterized by crossing of the inflow streams of the two ventricles due to a twisting of the heart about its long axis. The developmental mechanisms and causes of crisscross heart remain unknown. Neonates present with cyanosis and a systolic murmur. In this study, we report a case of crisscross heart with situs inversus, concordant atrioventricular and ventriculo arterial connection with ventricular septal defect and pulmonary stenosis, and review the literature on this rare cardiac malformation...
