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...

OBJECTIVE: Aortopulmonary window (APW) is a rare congenital heart defect. We reviewed our experience with this condition over the last two decades. METHODS: Between September 1993 and December 2013, 62 patients underwent surgery for APW. Depending on the associated lesions, they were divided into two groups: Simple (Group 1) or complex (Group 2). In the complex group, six patients had a ventricular septal defect, five patients had interrupted aortic arch, three patients had tetralogy of Fallot, two patients had double outlet right ventricle, and one patient had the right pulmonary artery arising from the ascending aorta...

Correct identification of mediastinal lymph node stations with endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) and endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) requires knowledge of their ultrasonic anatomical positions and relations. The ultrasonic positions of the lymph node stations located in and around the aortopulmonary window (stations 4L, 5, and 6) can be more challenging to understand. The aim of this report is to describe the endosonographic anatomic positions of stations 4L, 5, and 6 and to demonstrate their locations using EUS and EBUS...

OBJECTIVES: Berry syndrome is a combination of distal aortopulmonary window (APW), aortic origin of the right pulmonary artery (RPA), intact ventricular septum, and interrupted aortic arch. We present here our current experience of primary repair of this syndrome with the goal of optimizing treatment for this rare condition. METHODS: From January 2003 through December 2015, 16 infants with Berry syndrome underwent one-stage repair at Shanghai Children's Medical Center...

An asymptomatic 26-year-old man received an annual medical check-up, and chest X-ray showed a protrusion of the aortopulmonary window. Chest computed tomography (CT) revealed an anterior mediastinal tumor and cysts with thin wall and septum enhancement. The preoperative diagnosis was cystic thymoma or malignant lymphoma. We performed total resection of the tumor through a median sternotomy. The pathological findings revealed seminoma, positive for c-kit stain, and multilocular thymic cysts. Cysts were lined by normal squamous epithelium and no seminoma cells were located on their surface...

Aortopulmonary window is a rare form of congenital heart disease that requires significant anesthetic considerations. Cardiac involvement is a well-known comorbidity identified in patients with tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF). Identification of coexisting lesions, specifically congenital heart disease, is crucial before undergoing repair of a TEF. Understanding the complex physiology and expected changes occurring during the anesthetic and surgical intervention for correction of TEF with a significant unrepaired shunting defect is crucial to prevent hemodynamic instability...

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...
