Arterial ductal stenting

Sasidharan Bijulal, Deepa Sasikumar, Aamir Rashid
A newborn with tricuspid atresia and pulmonary atresia underwent ductal stenting. The aortic end of the ductus was not completely covered and was wide open; the baby was discharged on dual antiplatelets. The baby presented after a month with desaturation, and an angiogram showed extensive thrombus in the stent and the right pulmonary artery. The angle formed by the stent with the uncovered aortic end is likely to have precipitated the thrombus.

We report a case of combined hepatocellular-cholangiocarcinoma with stem cell features, cholangiolocellular subtype arising about 15 years after placement of an inferior vena cava stent for primary Budd-Chiari syndrome. Pre-surgical differentiation of the tumor from hepatocellular carcinoma was difficult because of elevated levels of alpha-fetoprotein and hypervascularity in the arterial phase. Histopathological examination revealed atypical cells forming ductal and alveolar structures showing a vague border with the surrounding liver...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the short- and medium-term outcomes of ductal stenting (DS) in patients with functionally univentricular hearts (FUHs) and ductal-dependent pulmonary blood flow. BACKGROUND: Several studies have evaluated the outcomes of DS in a limited number of patients with FUHs. Nonetheless, there is still no consensus regarding the indications for this procedure, and no appropriate patient selection criteria have been devised. METHODS: From 2005 to 2015, cardiac catheterization for DS was performed in 68 patients with FUHs...

Irreversible electroporation (IRE) is a non-thermal ablation technique used especially in locally advanced pancreatic carcinomas that are considered surgically unresectable. We present the first case of acute superior mesenteric artery (SMA) occlusion secondary to pancreatic IRE procedure that has not been reported before in the literature. A 66-year-old man underwent neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy for locally advanced pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. IRE procedure was applied to the patient during laparotomy under general anesthesia...

We report interventional re-opening of a PDA for reverse Potts shunt circulation 12 months after closure in a 3.8 year old child, suffering from right ventricular (RV) failure due to suprasystemic pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH) after ADO I implantation. After ex vivo simulation, perforation through the mesh of the ADO I with the use of transseptal needle, wire looping (AO-PA), balloon dilatation, stent implantation (Palmaz 6 mm) and post dilatation, a reverse Pott-shunt circulation was established. A follow-up period of 11 months was achieved with preserved RV function and reverse Pott shunt circulation maintained a post ductal saturation of 94-88%...

The spleen and pancreas are at risk for injury during abdominal trauma. The spleen is more commonly injured because of its fragile structure and its position immediately beneath the ribs. Injury to the more deeply placed pancreas is classically characterized by discordance between the severity of pancreatic injury and its initial clinical expression. For the patient who presents with hemorrhagic shock and ultrasound evidence of major hemoperitoneum, urgent "damage control" laparotomy is essential; if splenic injury is the cause, prompt "hemostatic" splenectomy should be performed...

Hepatic arterial flow is paramount in preserving biliary integrity. We present an interesting clinical scenario of a liver transplant recipient with biliary anastomotic stricture who developed biliary abscess and sepsis after Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography. The abscess did not respond to maximal medical management, percutaneous drainage, and adequate endoscopic biliary drainage. Clinically, patient continued to deteriorate and imaging identified hepatic artery stenosis which was treated with percutaneous intra-arterial stenting...

A 53-year-old woman underwent breast-conserving surgery for right breast cancer (invasive ductal carcinoma, T1cN0M0, ly+, stage ⅠA, ER+, PR+, HER2-) 5 years previously. During treatment with tamoxifen, massive recurrence in the axillary lymph nodes was found. First- through fourth-line chemotherapy were tried, but they all failed. Everolimus and exemestane were administered, resulting in rapid shrinking of the tumor, but the patient developed sudden severe bleeding from the subclavian artery. Hemostasis was achieved with artery stenting...

BACKGROUND: Carotid artery access in infants with congenital heart disease undergoing cardiac catheterization via a surgical cut down has been well described. There is a paucity of information regarding percutaneous carotid artery (CA) access in infants <3 months. METHODS: A retrospective review of infants <3 months of age undergoing cardiac catheterization via percutaneous CA approach was performed after IRB approval. Between January 2012 and May 2015, 18 patients underwent 20 procedures; median age 13 days (2-77); median weight 3...

The hybrid approach to management of hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) was developed as an alternative to neonatal Norwood surgery, providing a less invasive initial palliation for HLHS. We describe our experience in extending the concept of the hybrid procedure to palliate neonates with anatomically compromised systemic arterial blood flow in a variety of congenital cardiac anomalies and supporting its application as first-line palliation in centers developing their HLHS programs. Retrospective review of patients undergoing therapy for HLHS at a single institution from June 2008 to December 2014 was performed...

BACKGROUND: Hybrid procedure offers patients with severe congenital heart disease an alternative initial procedure to conventional surgical reconstruction. We report the midterm outcomes of a cohort of neonates who had a hybrid procedure for variants of hypoplastic left heart syndrome because they were at high risk for the Norwood procedure. METHODS: Between December 2005 and January 2013, 41 neonates underwent bilateral pulmonary artery banding followed by ductal stenting by means of a sternotomy at a median age of 6 days (range, 2 to 18 days) and weight of 2...

For high-risk neonates with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) undergoing Norwood operation, the strategy of bilateral pulmonary artery banding and ductal stenting is risky in case of coarctation of the aorta (CoA), often resulting in death. Therefore, we devised a new method of ductal stenting with side-branch cell dilation, which could overcome the constriction of the ductal arch with CoA in two HLHS patients. This is the first report that presents this method and the results. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc...

BACKGROUND: Results of surgical management of hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and related anomalies are often compared to published benchmark data which reflect the use of a variety of surgical and hybrid protocols. We report encouraging results achieved in an emerging program, despite a learning curve at all care levels. Rather than relying on a single preferred protocol, surgical management was based on matching surgical strategy to individual patient factors. METHODS: From 2010 to 2014, a total of 47 consecutive patients with HLHS or related anomalies with ductal-dependent systemic circulation underwent initial surgical palliation, including 30 Norwood stage I, 8 hybrid stage I, and 9 salvage-to-Norwood procedures...

Stenting of patent ductus arteriosus is an alternative to palliative cardiac surgery in newborns with duct-dependent or decreased pulmonary circulation; however, the use of this technique in patients with an aortic arch abnormality presents a challenge. Tetralogy of Fallot is a congenital heart defect that is frequently associated with anomalies of the aortic arch and its branches. The association is even more common in patients with chromosome 22q11 deletion. We present the case of an 18-day-old male infant who had cyanosis and a heart murmur...

Complex cases undergo step surgical and percutaneous procedures, including stent deployment. Concerns arise on stent removal at latest surgery. Our initial experience is presented. Forty-six stents in 35 patients were partially or totally removed at surgery. Univentricular heart was diagnosed in 20 patients. Stents were previously deployed in: ductus (6), right ventricle outflow tract (12), atrial septal defect (4), right pulmonary artery (4), left pulmonary artery (16), inferior vena cava (2), superior vena cava (1) and ascending aorta (1)...

We describe the case of an infant who was a late presenter of transposition of the great arteries where we proceeded with ductal stenting to improve oxygenation and left ventricle training. Stenting improved the infant's saturation while keeping the left ventricle well trained for 4 months after the procedure. This report demonstrates that intermediate-term left ventricle training can be achieved via ductal stenting.

INTRODUCTION: Debilitating patient-related non-cardiac co-morbidity cumulatively increases risk for congenital heart surgery. At our emerging programme, flexible surgical strategies were used in high-risk neonates and infants generally considered in-operable, in an attempt to make them surgical candidates and achieve excellent outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between April, 2010 and November, 2013, all referred neonates (142) and infants (300) (average scores: RACHS 2...

Bilateral ductal stenting should be performed in cases of discontinuity of the pulmonary branches and pulmonary atresia. Performing this procedure via the carotid artery in small infants can be very difficult and challenging. We present a case of bilateral ductal stenting via both the femoral and carotid arteries in a little child with tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia and a nonconfluent pulmonary artery and bilateral ductus arteriosus.
