Asymmetrical septal occluder device (ASOD) has made percutaneous closure of ventricular septal defect an easy and effective management option. Although there are reports of aortic and tricuspid valvular regurgitation after deployment of ASOD, only few cases of tricuspid stenosis (TS) has been reported so far in the literature. We report a case of malaligned ASOD that occurred after successful device closure resulting in TS along with mild tricuspid and aortic regurgitation requiring surgical retrieval. Transesophageal echocardiography played crucial role in detecting the cause of tricuspid valve dysfunction besides providing continuous monitoring during the procedure...

OBJECTIVE: Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) prevails as a major public health problem in sub-Saharan Africa. In Cameroon, reports on RHD have been so far limited to a few cities. We sought to describe the demographic, clinical and echocardiographic features of rheumatic heart disease in the Buea Regional Hospital, South West region of Cameroon. Echocardiography reports between June 2016 and June 2017 were reviewed. The diagnosis of RHD was based on the World Heart Federation Criteria for the diagnosis of RHD...

Carcinoid disease of the heart commonly affects the tricuspid and pulmonary valves causing thickening and stenosis. However in very rare circumstances, the disease can also involve the mitral and aortic valves. We present an unusual case of left sided carcinoid heart disease (CHD) and triple valve replacement without the presence of proven intra-cardiac shunts or bronchial carcinoid lesions.

Compared with the vast literature concerning the prevalence, pathophysiology, and outcome of left valvular disease, the data concerning tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is very limited. In this review we summarized the present data concerning these important issues. We show that TR is as prevalent as aortic stenosis in the community, with increasing prevalence with age, and much more common in women. We review the present knowledge concerning the pathogenesis of TR, focusing on functional TR. We show that functional TR is multifactorial, resulting from both RV remodeling and pulmonary hypertension, and/or atrial fibrillation resulting in right atrial dilatation...

BACKGROUND: Although flexible-ring annuloplasty is more inclined to increase the transmitral gradient over time, its effect on the tricuspid annulus is unknown. This study was conducted to evaluate serial changes in mean pressure gradient (mPG) across tricuspid and mitral valves after simultaneous dual implantation of flexible bands. METHODS: Seventy-one patients (median age, 61.6 years; IQR: 50.8-69.0 years) underwent simultaneous mitral/tricuspid annuloplasties using St...

AIMS: Conduction abnormalities (CA), in particular complete atrioventricular block (CAVB), requiring permanent pacemaker (PPM) implantation, are frequent complications after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS). However, the potential mechanisms are still incompletely understood. The objective of this retrospective study was to determine further predictors of CAVB after TAVI in patients without the known predictors. METHODS AND RESULTS: This study included patients without prior CA/PPM who underwent TAVI of a balloon-expandable valve (Sapien or Sapien XT or Sapien 3)...

For arrhythmia treatment or sudden cardiac death prevention in hemodialysis patients, there is a frequent need for placement of a cardiac implantable electronic device (pacemaker, implantable cardioverter defibrillator, or cardiac resynchronization device). Leads from a cardiac implantable electronic device can cause central vein stenosis and carry the risk of tricuspid regurgitation or contribute to infective endocarditis. In patients with end-stage kidney disease requiring vascular access and cardiac implantable electronic device, the best strategy is to create an arteriovenous fistula on the contralateral upper limb for a cardiac implantable electronic device and avoidance of central vein catheter...

This original clinical research study id focused on description of baseline anatomy and outcomes after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) in patients presenting with severe aortic stenosis (AS) and bicuspid aortic valve (BAV). We compared this BAV population with a population of patients with AS and tricuspid aortic valves after a propensity score matching developed by a multivariate logistic regression according to a non-parsimonious approach. Baseline anatomical characteristics were obtained by transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and multi-sliced computed tomography (MSCT) and compared by chi-square and t-student tests...

Evaluation of antiphospholipid antibodies (aPL) and correlation with heart valve abnormalities among patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Nested case-control study was conducted with 70 patients with SLE selected from a longitudinal database based on levels of aPL and presence or absence of valve disease by echocardiogram. Valvular abnormalities observed were regurgitation (52), other (14), artificial valves (4), stenosis (2), thickening (2) and no Libman-Sacks endocarditis (0). The mitral valve was the most commonly affected (30 abnormalities), followed by the tricuspid (20 abnormalities)...

Carcinoid tumors are rare, mainly located in the gastrointestinal tract particularly in the small intestine. Cardiac involvement, fairly frequent and usually affecting right sided heart valves, had a poor prognosis that is improved by an earlier detection and valve surgery. We report the case of a 50-years old woman with neuroendocrine tumor and liver metastases, in whom carcinoid involvement of the right heart was diagnosed following exertional dyspnea. She had dilated right cavities, severe tricuspid regurgitation, mild tricuspid stenosis and a moderate pulmonary stenosis...

We present the case of a 72-year-old woman diagnosed with rheumatic fever at the age of 6. In 1972, she was diagnosed with mitral valve insufficiency and mitral valve stenosis, then in 1974, a decision was made to perform mitral valve replacement surgery with a 32-mm Braunwald-Cutter ball cage prosthesis. An echocardiogram performed in 2014 revealed normal biventricular systolic function, mechanical prosthesis in mitral position with maximum speed of 1.9 m/s, maximum gradient of 15 mmHg, mean gradient of 6 mmHg, severe tricuspid valve insufficiency, inferior vena cava measuring 15 mm with more than 50% collapse and pulmonary artery systolic pressure of 40 mmHg...
