Since 1990 The Spanish Society of Cardiology Working Group on Cardiac Catheterization and Interventional Cardiology has presented a yearly report on the data collected in the National Registry, with online support since 2010. The Steering Committee has analysed all data provided voluntarily by institutions, which consisted of a total of anywhere between 105 and 113 hospitals. Medical care was provided to a population of 46.8 million inhabitants in 2015. During this period, diagnostic procedures increased progressively from 2010, reaching a maximum of 145,836 in 2015, 86% (125,484) corresponding to coronary angiograms...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter device closure has become the established standard of care for suitable atrial septal defects. Device erosion has been a recent focus and has prompted changes in the Instructions for Users documentation released by device companies. We reviewed our entire local experience with atrial septal defect device closure, focussing on the evolution of this procedure in our centre and particularly on complications. METHODS: We carried out a retrospective review of 581 consecutive patients undergoing attempted transcatheter device closure of an atrial septal defect in Auckland from December 1997 to June 2014...

The venous anomaly of a persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) affects 0.3%-0.5% of the general population. PLSVC with absent right superior vena cava, also termed as "isolated PLSVC," is an extremely rare venous anomaly. Almost half of the patients with isolated PLSVC have cardiac anomalies in the form of atrial septal defect, endocardial cushion defects, or tetralogy of Fallot. Isolated PLSVC is usually innocuous. Its discovery, however, has important clinical implications. It can pose clinical difficulties with central venous access, cardiothoracic surgeries, and pacemaker implantation...

UNLABELLED: Appropriate hydration is a very important prognostic factor for the patient's health. Ultrasonographic assessment of hydration status is rarely used in pediatric medicine and it is not used at all in neonates due to the fact that no reference values have been established for this age group. The aim of the paper was to establish reference values for neonates. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study included 50 neonates from two hospitals in the Lower Silesia region of Poland; 25 of them were healthy patients (full-term newborns with no perinatal complications) and 25 were sick patients (newborns with heart defects such as ostium secundum atrial septal defect, ventricular septal defect, permanent foramen ovale and patent ductus arteriosus as well as newborns with neonatal jaundice or pneumonia that occurred during the first days of life)...

Secundum atrial septum defect (ASD) is the most common congenital heart disease. It is usually treated by a transcatheter approach using a femoral venous access. In case of bilateral femoral vein occlusion, the internal jugular venous approach for ASD closure is an option, in particular in cases where ASD balloon occlusion test and sizing is needed. Here, we report on a new technique for ASD closure using a venous-arterial circuit from the right internal jugular vein to the femoral artery. Two patients (females, 4 and 10 years of age) had occlusion of both femoral veins because of a previous history of pulmonary atresia and intact ventricular septum, for which they underwent percutaneous radiofrequency perforation and balloon angioplasty...

Current guidelines recommend that all neonates with Down syndrome (DS) be screened for congenital heart disease (CHD) with an echocardiogram. We sought to determine the effectiveness of a more accessible and less expensive screening strategy consisting of physical examination, electrocardiogram (ECG), and chest X-ray. The Intermountain Healthcare Enterprise Data Warehouse was used to identify infants with a positive karyotype for DS who were born between January 1, 2000, and June 30, 2012. Infants with the results of an echocardiogram, physical examination, ECG, and chest X-ray documented at age ≤6 months were included...

Because paravalvular leak after mitral valve replacement in highly morbid patients is a troublesome issue, there has been a growing interest in less invasive procedures. We conducted transcatheter paravalvular leak closure of a mitral valve prosthesis through left ventricular apical access. The patient had undergone redo mitral valve replacement through a transatrial septal approach 2 months prior to the procedure; thus, penetration of the atrial septum was considered to be difficult through the ordinary antegrade trans-septal approach...

The GORE(®) Septal Occluder (GSO) is a well-evaluated device for interventional ASD closure with closure rates comparable to the Amplatzer(®) Septal Occluder (ASO), but there are no published reports of its use in small children weighing less than 10 kg. This may be due to the necessity of a large-sized introducing sheath of at least 10 Fr and therefore the assumed risk of complications in vascular access. The GSO is an alternative option for interventional ASD closure in children weighing less than 10 kg...

Cardiac erosion related to transcatheter atrial septal defect closure devices is of increasing concern. Erosion is reported to have occurred with most of currently available occluder devices. Perhaps due to the very large number of implants worldwide, the Amplatzer (St Jude) occluder is associated with the majority of cardiac erosion events reported in the literature. Best current estimates of the incidence of erosion with the St Jude device are between one and three cases per 1000 implants. Most events occur early after implantation and it is rare, although not unheard of, for events to occur after a year following device insertion...

OBJECTIVES: In cases of cardiac surgery via a minimally invasive right minithoracotomy approach, cardiopulmonary bypass is established with peripheral arterial cannulation, frequently with a single femoral artery. Occasionally, alternative perfusion access is required to prevent perfusion site-related complications. In this study, the feasibility of alternative perfusion strategies was verified by comparing the postoperative outcomes and complications. METHODS: The records of 91 consecutive patients (68 women, 23 men; mean age 40...

Catheter radiofrequency ablation of focal atrial fibrillation was successfully performed in a patient after closure of interventricular septal defect with a xeno-pericardial patch and plastic of tricuspid valve. The case demonstrates feasibility of carrying out such interventions under intracardiac echocardiographic guidance in patients with disturbed anatomy and complicated access to the left atrium.

Transcatheter edge-to-edge mitral valve repair with MitraClip System (Abbott Vascular, Menlo Park, CA) needs a trans-septal access for positioning the 22-Fr guiding catheter in the left atrium. To the best of our knowledge no data are currently available about the hemodynamic consequences of a congenital atrial septal defect (ASD) after MitraClip repair. We report a case of MitraClip repair in a patient with ostium secundum ASD and ischemic cardiomyopathy, who needed intraprocedural closure of the defect for serious hemodynamic complications, secondary to worsening of the right ventricular function, increased pulmonary pressure and inversion of the interatrial shunt in right-to-left direction...

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...
