Interruption of the aortic arch, aortopulmonary window, and anomalous origin of the right pulmonary artery from the ascending aorta are very rare congenital anomalies. It is even rarer to have all three anomalies in the same setting. We present a case of a newborn who was diagnosed with these lesions and describe the primary repair of these anomalies.

Berry syndrome is a rare congenital cardiac malformation. We describe 4 cases of Berry syndrome diagnosed by fetal echocardiography. Based on our experience, the three-vessel view is important for diagnosing the aortopulmonary window and aortic origin of the right pulmonary artery. Furthermore, the true cross-sectional and sagittal views obtained by continuously scanning from the three-vessel-trachea view to the long-axis view of the aortic arch are required to image the interruption or coarctation of the aortic arch...

PurposeSmooth muscle dysfunction syndrome (SMDS) due to heterozygous ACTA2 arginine 179 alterations is characterized by patent ductus arteriosus, vasculopathy (aneurysm and occlusive lesions), pulmonary arterial hypertension, and other complications in smooth muscle-dependent organs. We sought to define the clinical history of SMDS to develop recommendations for evaluation and management.MethodsMedical records of 33 patients with SMDS (median age 12 years) were abstracted and analyzed.ResultsAll patients had congenital mydriasis and related pupillary abnormalities at birth and presented in infancy with a patent ductus arteriosus or aortopulmonary window...

Intrathoracic paragangliomas are uncommon and only represent 1%-2% of paragangliomas. They are most commonly found in mediastinal compartments (aortopulmonary window or posterior mediastinum). Computed tomography, magnetic resonance, and specific nuclear medicine radiotracers are routinely used to characterize these lesions and help exclude other more common conditions. Selective angiography is currently used for preoperative embolization and mapping of the vascular supply before surgical resection, rather than for diagnostic purposes alone...

Aortopulmonary window (APW) is a rare congenital anomaly. We report an association of APW with crisscross pulmonary arteries (hitherto unreported) in a 6-month-old child. There was differential flow to the right pulmonary artery was evident by the chest X-ray. We discuss the pathophysiology of the differential pulmonary blood flow in a case of APW.

OBJECTIVES: To study the anatomic and haemodynamic data and results of surgery in patients undergoing surgical repair of aortopulmonary window beyond infancy. METHODS: Between July 2005 and December 2015, 23 patients, older than 1 year undergoing surgery for aortopulmonary window were analysed retrospectively. Postoperative clinical and echocardiography follow-up were performed. RESULTS: Median age and weight at repair was 4 years (range 14 months-12 years) and 12 kg (range 3...

Aortopulmonary window (APW), the presence of a communication between aorta and pulmonary artery, is a rare congenital heart disease, and surgical intervention is the standard for closure. Recently, several cases have been treated with transcatheter device occluders. Here, we report an APW patient treated successfully using a transcatheter closure with a symmetrical membranous ventricular septal occluder. We are the first to report on a case treated with this type of occluder for APW.

BACKGROUND: Resection surgery for pancreaticobiliary malignancies carries significant morbidity and mortality. Hence, preoperative assessment to exclude unresectable disease is mandatory. CT abdomen is the primary modality for staging of pancreaticobiliary cancers. However, some patients have malignant mediastinal lymphadenopathy (MML), which may be detected on endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) but not on CT scan. METHODS: We prospectively evaluated 75 consecutive patients (median age 54 years: 44 men) with a diagnosis of resectable pancreaticobiliary cancer (carcinoma gallbladder, carcinoma pancreas, cholangiocarcinoma, or periampullary carcinoma) for the presence of MML using EUS by an experienced endosonographer...

BACKGROUND: Major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (MAPCAs) are frequently found in association with pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect (PA/VSD). However, some patients with MAPCAs do not have PA/VSD but have a variety of other "atypical" anatomic diagnoses. METHODS: This was a retrospective review of patients with MAPCAs and atypical anatomy. The 50 patients with MAPCAs could be divided into two subgroups: (1) single ventricle anatomy (n = 33) and (2) two ventricle anatomy (n = 17)...

OBJECTIVES: Aortopulmonary window represents 0.2-0.3% of all congenital heart lesions. Progressive pulmonary arterial hypertension and its consequences are more common with this anomaly. The purpose of this study was to share 24 years of surgical experience in managing a spectrum of 55 cases of aortopulmonary window, followed up to 17 years in a single institution. METHODS: This retrospective study was done from November 1991 to November 2015 of 55 patients with aortopulmonary window who underwent successful surgical repair...

Aortopulmonary window (APW) is a relatively rare cardiac lesion representing approximately 0.2%-0.4% of all cardiac malformation. It is a cardiac abnormality that results from abnormal communication between the proximal aorta and the main pulmonary artery in the presence of two normally separated aortic and pulmonary valves. In the past, the diagnostic and surgical approach to APW was almost always preceded by cardiac catheterization. With recent advances in noninvasive approach and techniques of two-dimensional echocardiography diagnosis of the defect and associated anomalies are facilitated without a cath study...

Aortopulmonary window (APW) is a rare congenital heart defect, characterized by a connection between the ascending aorta and the pulmonary trunk before bifurcation. Prenatal diagnosis of APW is essential, as a surgical correction early after birth is required in most cases to prevent congestive heart failure secondary to high pulmonary blood flow. We report a series of three cases of APW that were detected by prenatal echocardiography. The key feature of diagnosis is demonstration of connection between the pulmonary artery and the aorta above the level of the two semilunar valves...

De novo heterozygous mutations changing R179 to histidine, leucine, or cysteine in the ACTA2 gene are associated with Multisystemic Smooth Muscle Dysfunction Syndrome (MSMDS). Characteristic hallmarks of this condition, caused only by these specific ACTA2 mutations, are congenital mydriasis (mid-dilated, non-reactive pupils), a large persistent ductus arteriosus (PDA), aortic aneurysms evolving during childhood, and cerebrovascular anomalies. We describe two patients, a 3-day-old newborn and a 26-year-old woman, with this unique mutation in association with a huge PDA and an aorto-pulmonary window...

Aortopulmonary window is a rare cardiac developmental anomaly characterised by a communication between the ascending aorta and the pulmonary artery. Aortopulmonary window may be isolated or associated with cardiac defects such as ventricular septal defect, atrial septal defect, interrupted aortic arch, and tetralogy of Fallot. We report a case of aortopulmonary window associated with aberrant subclavian artery based on fetal two-dimensional echocardiogram. The mother was referred for fetal echocardiography because of multiple fetal anomalies...
