INTRODUCTION: Congenital heart defects are common in infants and adults, affecting quality of life if not corrected. Unlike open surgery, percutaneous intervention allows correction with a high success rate and speedy recovery. In Mexico, there are not enough studies to describe their efficacy and safety. METHODS: A cohort study was conducted in the Hospital "Manuel Avila Camacho", in Puebla, Mexico, including 149 patients with congenital heart defects repaired by percutaneous intervention, recording data from clinical records...

Totally endoscopic cardiac operations for coronary procedures and atrial septal defect repair have demonstrated improved quality of life, but they have required longer cross-clamp times compared with open operations. Although transcatheter valve implantation remains appropriate for inoperable patients, the totally endoscopic approach could be an effective treatment for lower risk patients, including complete removal of the stenotic aortic valve, while minimizing surgical chest wall trauma, and providing excellent early quality of life...

BACKGROUND: Patients with atrial septal defects (ASD) are often misdiagnosed as asthma patients and accordingly receive erroneous bronchodilator treatment. In order to characterise their symptoms of dyspnoea to explain this clinical observation, we investigated the prevalence of asthma-like symptoms in patients with secundum ASD who then underwent successful percutaneous closure. METHODS: A total of 80 ASD patients (74 % female, mean age 46.7 ± 16.8 years, median follow-up 3...

Hospital volume is regarded amongst many in the medical community as an important quality metric. This is especially true in more complicated and less commonly performed procedures such as structural heart disease interventions. Seminal work on hospital volume relationships was done by Luft et al more than 4 decades ago, when they demonstrated that hospitals performing > 200 surgical procedures a year had 25%-41% lower mortality than those performing fewer procedures. Numerous volume-outcome studies have since been done for varied surgical procedures...

BACKGROUND: Fused real-time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography and fluoroscopy has been used in adult patients during percutaneous mitral valve and aortic valve procedures. The use of fused echocardiographic/x-ray fluoroscopic imaging (FEX) in pediatric patients undergoing congenital heart disease catheterization has not been evaluated for feasibility and safety. The aims of this study were to assess the feasibility and safety of FEX for interventional guidance and to perform a comparison of atrial septal defect (ASD) device closure using this technology with traditional guidance methods...

BACKGROUND: It has been postulated that atrial septal pouch (ASP) may favor the stasis of blood and predispose to thromboembolic complications. We sought to evaluate the prevalence of ASP, and its association with ischemic stroke. METHODS: We retrospectively studied 500 patients, who underwent transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) due to clinical indications. Seventy two patients due to image quality, and 104 patients with atrial septal defect or PFO were excluded...

BACKGROUND: Because of the unique geometry of the right ventricle, assessment of right ventricular (RV) volume and function is clinically challenging. The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of single-beat three-dimensional echocardiography (sb3DE) for RV volume and functional assessment in patients with dilated right ventricles. METHODS: Fifty-two patients with severe tricuspid regurgitation or atrial septal defects were enrolled. Fifty patients underwent sb3DE and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) within 24 hours under a euvolemic state, and the results of sb3DE were compared with those of CMR, the reference method...

BACKGROUND: The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) Quality Measurement Task Force is developing a portfolio of composite performance measures for the most commonly performed procedures in adult cardiac surgery. We now describe the fourth in this series, the STS composite measure for mitral valve repair/replacement (MVRR). METHODS: We examined all patients undergoing isolated MVRR, with or without concomitant performance of tricuspid valve repair, surgical arrhythmia ablation, or repair of atrial septal defect, between July 1, 2011, and June 30, 2014...

Partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) is a type of left to right shunt, when one or more lung veins drain to right atrium directly or indirectly via systemic veins. PAPVC is a rare condition, discovered by 0.4 to 0.7% of cases in autopsy series. It is often associated with atrial septal defect, but can be found with other congenital anomalies such as ventricular septal defect. Our report is about 42-year old woman who has right sided PAPVC draining into right brachiocephalic vein, which was incidental finding during pulmonary CT angiography...

BACKGROUND: Transposition of the great arteries (TGA) is the most common cyanotic cardiopathy, with an incidence ranging between 0.2 and 0.4 per 1000 live births. Many patients not treated in the first few months of life may progress with severe pulmonary vascular disease. Treatment of these patients may include palliative surgery to redirect the flow at the atrial level. OBJECTIVE: Report our institutional experience with the palliative Senning procedure in children diagnosed with TGA and double outlet right ventricle with severe pulmonary vascular disease, and to evaluate the early and late clinical progression of the palliative Senning procedure...

INTRODUCTION: Echocardiography is a highly operator-dependant technique which requires adequate training and skills that are frequently not present, considering the widespread use of cardiovascular ultrasound. This could particularly be true for hand-held echo devices which made echocardiography more accessible but are frequently used by non-cardiologists and non-experts. OUTLINE OF CASES: We present a 45-year-old female and a 37-year-old male with heart murmurs due to atrial and ventricular septal defect, respectively...

Fusion of different imaging modalities has gained increasing popularity over the last decade. However, most fusions are done between static rather than dynamic images. In order to adequately visualize the complex three-dimensional structures of the beating heart, high-temporal and spatial image resolutions are mandatory. Currently, only the combination of transesophageal echocardiography with fluoroscopy allows real-time image fusion of high quality during structural heart disease (SHD) interventions. The use of markers as well as real-time image overlay greatly facilitates communication between SHD team members and potentially increases procedural success while reducing radiation dose and use of contrast...

This consensus statement is the result of a workshop at the SPUMS Annual Scientific Meeting 2014 with representatives of the UK Sports Diving Medical Committee (UKSDMC) present, and subsequent discussions including the entire UKSDMC. Right-to-left shunt across a persistent or patent foramen ovale (PFO) is a risk factor for some types of decompression illness. It was agreed that routine screening for PFO is not currently justifiable, but certain high risk sub-groups can be identified. Divers with a history of cerebral, spinal, inner-ear or cutaneous decompression illness, migraine with aura, a family history of PFO or atrial septal defect and those with other forms of congenital heart disease are considered to be at higher risk...
