To date, there are no reported cases of the Amplatzer Duct Occluder II: Additional Sizes' use in percutaneous closure of an aortopulmonary window. We report a case of percutaneous closure of an aortopulmonary window in a 4.5-month-old, 6 kg child. Owing to the patient's low weight, high risk of damage to the pulmonary valve, as well as the possibility of aortic and pulmonary artery obstruction, classic implants were deemed unsuitable and a decision was made to use the Amplatzer Duct Occluder II: Additional Sizes...

Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser (MRKH) syndrome is a rare congenital anomaly characterized by complete or partial aplasia of the uterus and the upper part of the vagina. It is reported to be associated with cardiovascular disorders including atrial septal defect, anomalous pulmonary venous return, aortopulmonary window, pulmonary valve stenosis, mitral valve prolapse, tetralogy of Fallot, truncus arteriosus, and patent ductus arteriosus. Herein, for the first time in the medical literature, we present percutaneous closure of an isolated ostium secundum atrial septal defect in this syndrome...

Massive hemoptysis from an aortobronchial fistula due to thoracic aortic dissection is an extremely rare symptom, but is a potentially life-threatening condition. We report a case of acute massive hemoptysis due to aortobronchial fistula that was successfully controlled by a simple and rapid thick wedge resection of the lung with hematoma by using the black cartilage stapler. A 65-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with acute massive hemoptysis. After tracheal intubation, chest computed tomography revealed hematoma in the left lung and ruptured aortic dissection from the distal arch to the descending aorta...

The association of tricuspid atresia with aortopulmonary window is exceptionally rare. We report a patient with tricuspid atresia, normally related great arteries, non-restrictive ventricular septal defect, and no pulmonary stenosis (type IC) with an aortopulmonary window who underwent successful initial surgical palliation. The unique anatomical feature of this case, other than the presence of the aortopulmonary window, was the absence of pulmonary stenosis at the level of either the ventricular septal defect or the pulmonary valve...

A prenatal aortopulmonary window with an interrupted aortic arch was detected in a 22-week-old fetus. The 3-vessel and trachea view showed a communication between the ascending aorta and the pulmonary artery. Early postnatal surgery was successful. A PubMed-based search identified all cases of prenatal aortopulmonary windows between 2002 and 2015. Nine articles were identified. The average gestational age at diagnosis was 28 weeks (range, 22-33 weeks). The most frequent aortopulmonary window was type I (40%)...

A 2-year-old recently spayed female Rottweiler was referred as an emergency with cardiac tamponade and the presence of an anomalous retrograde flow in the pulmonary artery. Echocardiography and angiography demonstrated a left-to-right aortopulmonary fistula. Clinical history and data indicated a possible infectious aetiology. Antibiotics and heart failure medications were administered for 30 days before intervention. Initial attempt at insertion of an Amplatz occluder by means of a percutaneous catheterization technique was tried but a safe release of the device was judged to be not possible due to the angle and the fragile and irregular margins of the window...

Aortopulmonary window (APW) is a rare abnormality in which a pulmonary defect exists between the ascending aorta and the main pulmonary artery. Given that it may result in cardiac failure and pulmonary vascular disease in the early period, treatment needs to be performed without delay. In addition to surgical treatment, transcatheter closure may also be performed for selected patients. This study describes the case of an infant diagnosed with APW and who underwent successful transcatheter closure using a Nit-Occlud® PDA-R device...

Aortopulmonary window is a rare anomaly, a communication between the ascending aorta and the main pulmonary artery. Prognosis in the absence of correction is poor, with mortality of around 40% in the first year of life. A case of aortopulmonary window without pulmonary vascular disease in adulthood is described in the present report.

We report a successful surgical management of a case presented with a combination of aortopulmonary window (APW) with large ventricular septal defect (VSD) amounting to a single ventricle, with a view to highlight technical considerations during staged single-ventricle palliation.

BACKGROUND: The arterial switch operation (ASO) for the transposition of the great arteries (TGA) with intramural coronary arteries has been performed using several techniques to avoid coronary events. We mainly performed ASO without coronary relocation by creating an aortopulmonary fenestration (Imai technique). Coronary circulation was rerouted by covering the aortopulmonary window and coronary orifices with a nonfacing sinus flap. Long-term results have not been reported. We describe our early and late results...

BACKGROUND: Aortopulmonary window (APW) is a rare congenital defect that is often associated with other cardiac lesions. We analyzed our operative strategy to determine whether this had any relationship with outcomes. METHODS: Early and late outcomes of 40 children who underwent APW repair at our institution during a 20-year period (1994 to 2013) were analyzed. RESULTS: Median age at time of the operation was 22 days (interquartile range, 9 to 63 days), and median weight was 3...

Topsy-turvy heart is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly characterized by a 90° rotation of the heart along its long axis. The great vessels originate posteroinferiorly, and the arch vessels are elongated and join the aorta well below the carina. It is usually associated with aortic arch and tracheobronchial anomalies. Cardiopulmonary bypass is challenging in these patients because of the abnormal position of the great vessels. We describe the surgical management of aortopulmonary window in a topsy-turvy heart in a 14-day-old girl...

Management of long standing left to right shunt lesion resulting in elevated pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) is challenging. Limited surgical options are further complicated by an unpredictable postoperative period. Unidirectional valve patch (UVP) closure has shown to be useful in cases of the large ventricular septal defect (VSD) who present late. We report a case of large aortopulmonary window coexisting with a large VSD with severe pulmonary artery hypertension and significantly elevated PVR that was managed surgically by closure of the window by sandwich technique and closure of the septal defect with a UVP...

Anomalous origin of one pulmonary artery from the aorta is rare. We report a case of a three-month-old infant with aortopulmonary window and anomalous origin of the right pulmonary artery from the ascending aorta. He underwent surgery with anastomosis of the right pulmonary artery, ligation of the aortopulmonary window and the patent duct. He was released under medical treatment and had no signs of pulmonary hypertension or heart failure.

Thymectomy is part of the therapeutic armamentarium for myasthenia gravis (MG). During the past 80 years, multiple observational studies have shown that thymectomy can potentially fasten stabilization of the disease, reduce the need for corticosteroids, and in some patients lead to complete remission. The benefit from thymectomy in MG is supported by propensity score analysis. A randomized control trial looking at the role of thymectomy in nonthymomatous MG patients was recently completed, but the results are not yet available...

We describe, in this report, an unusually shaped aortopulmonary communication observed in a six-month-old infant who presented with an associated ventricular septal defect. The defect was tubular, measuring 7 mm in length, and located intrapericardially between the proximal ascending aorta and the pulmonary trunk. It was well defined by transthoracic echocardiogram and was suitable for surgical ligation. We share our dilemma in naming this defect appropriately. We base our explanation on our understanding of normal development of the intrapericardial arterial trunks...
