A 200∼240 kb SH2B1-containing deletion region on 16p11.2 is associated with early-onset obesity and developmental delay. Here, we describe monozygotic twin brothers with discordant clinical presentations. Intrauterine fetal growth restriction was present in both twins. Additionally, twin A exhibited coarctation of aorta, left ventricular noncompaction, atrial septal defect, pericardial effusion, left hydronephrosis, and moderate developmental delay, whereas twin B exhibited single umbilical artery. Chromosome microarray analysis was performed on both twins and their parents...

The inferior vena cava (IVC) is a rare site of focal atrial tachycardia (AT). Here, we report a 20-year-old woman who underwent catheter ablation for anti-arrhythmic drug-resistant AT originating from the IVC. She had undergone open-heart surgery for patch closure of an atrial septal defect 17 years previously and permanent pacemaker implantation for sinus node dysfunction 6 years previously. The AT focus was at the anterolateral aspect of the IVC-right atrial junction, and it was successfully ablated under three-dimensional electroanatomical-mapping guidance...

Minimally invasive atrial septal defect closure and tricuspid annuloplasty in female patients are normally performed through a right submammary anterior minithoracotomy approach. However, when the aortic root is located higher, the direction of aortic cannulation becomes not ideal through the submammary incision. In such cases, transareolar approach is useful. Through this approach, aortic cannulation and tricuspid operation can be performed with endoscopic assistance, and ASD closure can be performed under direct vision...

We describe the use of percutaneously inserted, transcatheter endovascular graft prostheses to exclude large Mustard baffle leaks in a high-surgical-risk patient. We used 3-dimensional-printed models to determine feasibility and to plan the procedure. Telescoping thoracic and abdominal graft extensions were placed in the inferior and superior limbs of the systemic venous pathways. An atrial septal defect occluder device was also used to close a separate leak not covered by the endovascular graft prostheses...

BACKGROUND: Little is known regarding intergenerational differences in the effects of atrial sepal defect (ASD) closure on the left heart. We therefore analyzed age-related serial changes in the left heart following ASD closure. METHODS: We studied 50 patients with an isolated ASD who underwent successful transcatheter closure using Amplatzer septal occluders (St. Jude Medical, Little Canada, MN, USA) between June 2007 and June 2013. Patients were divided into three age groups: young patients aged ≤17 years; middle-aged patients aged 18-50 years; and older patients aged >50 years...

OBJECTIVES: Atrial and ventricular septal defects are the most common congenital heart defects and the closing procedures share important similarities. Generally, the postoperative outcome is considered benign, but there is growing concern regarding late ventilatory function. Therefore, the aim of this review was to describe the ventilatory function in patients with open as well as percutaneously or surgically closed atrial and ventricular septal defects. METHODS: We performed a search protocol based on the "Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses" (PRISMA) guidelines...

Sternal cleft (SC) is a rare form of chest wall deformity with an incidence of <0.15%. It occurs because of failure of fusion of the sternal bars about the 7-9th week of intrauterine life. It could occur in isolation or as a part of a syndromic complex. This condition exposes the vital mediastinal structures to a huge risk of injury, aside from cosmetic issues. Treatment in the neonatal period is most favourable, though other modalities are available in the later stages of life, but it can be challenging...

The 40 mm ASO device can be used with a high rate of successful implantation for ASD closure The technique of implantation usually requires more than simple direct, device placement Balloon-assisted technique (BAT) can make use of this large occluder more predictable Experience contributes significantly to procedure success Important complications, such as device embolization will occur in a small number of cases Thrombotic complications are infrequent, even with aspirin monotherapy.

Complications after percutaneous atrial septal defect closure such as residual shunting or device-related events are generally treated using conventional sternotomy or thoracotomy incisions. In these cases, minimally invasive approaches including mini-sternotomy, mini-thoracotomy or endoscopic techniques can also be used in the management of complications, residual defects and concomitant procedures. However, robotic surgery is a reasonable alternative for removal of septal occluder devices and concomitant repair procedures to prevent cardiopulmonary morbidities...

Persistent Left Superior Vena Cava (PLSVC) should be suspected if we find dilatation of coronary sinus. Sophisticated imaging is not always available in each health care provider. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) with agitated saline injections through the left and right antecubital veins provides a simple, and inexpensive, but effective study for a rapid bedside diagnosis of PSLVC.
