Behçet's disease (BD) is systemic vasculitis of unknown etiology, which is more common in the countries located along the Great Silk Road. The disease is diagnosed if a patient has 4 key diagnostic signs: aphthous stomatitis, genital sores, and eye and skin lesions. Vascular diseases referred to as minor criteria for BD are characterized by the formation of aneurysms and thrombosis, predominantly in the venous bed. In venous disorders, a blood clot can form in any vessel, including caval, cerebral, pulmonary, and other veins...

Rupture of right sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (SVA) protruding into the pulmonary artery with aortic and pulmonary valve endocarditis is rare. A 42-year-old man was admitted with fever and dyspnea. He was diagnosed with right sinus of Valsalva rupture with ventricular septal defect (VSD) and vegetation on both aortic and pulmonary valves. Dual exposure technique was performed. The base of the aneurysm sac was closed off, and, together with the VSD, was covered by a Gore-Tex patch. Aortic and pulmonary valves were replaced with mechanical valves...

Congenital ventricular aneurysm is a rare cardiac malformation characterized by protrusion or out-pouching of a portion of the ventricular wall. The aneurysm usually has a broad based communication with the ventricular cavity and has to be differentiated from a diverticulum. Herein described are two such cases of left and right ventricular aneurysm each, diagnosed on prenatal ultrasound at 38 and 36 weeks of gestation respectively.

OBJECTIVE: The use of antiplatelet or anticoagulants has previously been shown to increase hemorrhagic complications of ventricular catheterization. Although heparin use 24 h after ventriculostomy appears safe, the safety of heparin immediately (within 4 h) after ventriculostomy is unknown. The objective of this study was to assess the safety of heparin immediately (within 4 h) after ventriculostomy in subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) patients undergoing endovascular treatment. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study of 46 patients with aneurysmal SAH secondary to aneurysm rupture who required ventriculostomy...

Saphenovenous graft aneurysm is a rare complication of coronary artery bypass grafts that is likely underdiagnosed. It is typically asymptomatic, slow growing, and often diagnosed incidentally on angiography or following catastrophic rupture. There is no consensus on best management but PCI and surgery appear to have more favourable mortality outcomes relative to conservative management. We present the case of a 48-year-old male with a cardiovascular risk profile hallmarked by diabetes mellitus, end stage renal failure, recalcitrant hyperlipidaemia, and IHD previously treated with CABG...

Myocardial Abscess (MA) is a rare life threatening condition mostly occurring secondary to underlying infective endocarditis. But it can also be found secondary to septicemia with some unknown focus of sepsis in the body. Development of MA as a consequence of left ventricular aneurysm (LVA) secondary to myocardial infarction is very rare. We report the case of 56 year old male, who presented with high grade fever and leukocytosis. On detailed evaluation, he was found to have a myocardial abscess with underlying LVA...

Atrial septal aneurysm (ASA), common finding in normal echocardiographies, has been described in association with transient ischemic attacks (TIAs)/strokes, as well as hypertensive end-organ damage such as left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy. Aim of this study was to assess if a cluster of echocardiographic aspects could characterize TIA hypertensive patients. A cross-sectional study on patients with history of TIA, referring to a Hypertension Center echolab, has been performed. A total of 5223 patients received transthoracic echocardiography...

BACKGROUND: Surgical ventricular restoration (SVR) has been performed to treat left ventricular (LV) aneurysm. However, there is limited analysis of changes in LV shape. This study aimed to evaluate the changes in LV shape induced by SVR and the effects of SVR on LV size and function for LV aneurysm. METHODS: Between April 2006 and March 2015, 18 patients with dyskinetic (dyskinetic group) and 12 patients with akinetic (akinetic group) postinfarction LV anterior aneurysm receiving SVR with the Dor procedure at Chinese People's Liberation Army General Hospital were enrolled in this study...

Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is an uncommon variant of HCM characterized by apical hypertrophy without the septal predominance seen in the majority of HCM cases. In 2% of patients, a concomitant left ventricular apical aneurysm is observed, which increases the risk of sudden death and adverse HCM-related events. Multimodality imaging is helpful for appropriate identification of this particular morphologic pattern. Herein, we present a case of apical HCM with a left ventricular apical aneurysm, exemplifying the utility of a multimodality approach from resting electrocardiogram, transthoracic echocardiogram, left ventriculography, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, for proper risk stratification and treatment planning...

OBJECTIVE Ruptured blister aneurysms remain challenging lesions for treatment due to their broad, shallow anatomy and thin, fragile wall. Historical challenges with both open microsurgical approaches and intrasaccular endovascular approaches have led to increased use of flow diversion for management of these aneurysms. However, the optimum paradigm, including timing of treatment, use of dual antiplatelet therapy, and number of flow-diverter devices to use remains unknown. The authors describe their experience with ruptured blister aneurysms treated with flow diversion at their institution, and discuss rates of rebleeding and number of devices used...

Ventricular septal defects are one of the most common congenital cardiac malformations in animals, and most often affect the membranous portion of the septum. These defects may rarely close spontaneously. An adult male black-tailed prairie dog ( Cynomys ludovicianus) had a smooth shiny botryoid red mass arising from the area of the septal cusp of the right atrioventricular (tricuspid) valve and membranous interventricular septum, and bulging into the right ventricular lumen. Histology and special staining demonstrated a membranous ventricular septal defect closed by the adherence of the septal cusp of the tricuspid valve to the muscular septum (so-called membranous ventricular septal aneurysm or aneurysm of the [peri]membranous ventricular septum)...

BACKGROUND: Standard cine-cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging is commonly used to evaluate cardiac structure, geometry and function. Prior studies have shown that automated segmentation via partial voxel interpolation (PVI) accurately quantifies phantom-based cardiac chamber volumes and necropsy left ventricular myocardial mass. Despite this, the applicability and usefulness of PVI in the determination of physiologic parameters of the aorta such as aortic stiffness has yet to be investigated...

Endocardial mapping of the left ventricle (LV) using the NOGA® XP Cardiac Navigation System can identify chronically ischemic and viable myocardium in patients with coronary artery disease by generating electromechanical maps. These maps are very useful when targeting myocardial tissue for injection of stem cells. We present the case of a woman who developed a perforation at the site of an LV aneurysm during NOGA mapping prior to the transendocardial injection of stem cells, as part of a multicenter clinical trial...

We report three cases of coronary fistula aneurysm associated with mitral valve insufficiency. The patients were referred to our cardiovascular department because of exertional dyspnea. Echocardiography showed severe mitral valve insufficiency resulting from leaflet flail or prolapse and normal left ventricular function. In all three cases, preoperative coronary angiography showed coronary-to-pulmonary artery fistula associated with significant aneurysm of the fistulous tract. All patients underwent uneventful mitral valve repair and external ligation of the fistulas...

We report a 63-year-old female with hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and prior pacemaker insertion for atrial fibrillation with symptomatic bradycardia, who was admitted with substernal chest pressure and diaphoresis. Her electrocardiogram revealed atrial fibrillation with demand ventricular pacing and her cardiac biomarkers were negative for acute coronary syndrome. Echocardiogram revealed normal left ventricular systolic function and normal aortic root diameter. Coronary angiography revealed 60-70% obtuse marginal lesion, otherwise mild disease...

Finding the cause of acute neurological deterioration in the hours following aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage remains challenging. The presence of blood casts in the ventricles proves that deterioration is secondary to acute hydrocephalus and prompts immediate external ventricular drain placement.

Left ventricular aneurysm (LVA) is rare but potentially fatal complication of myocardial infarction. It has been strictly defined as a distinct area of abnormal left ventricular diastolic contour with systolic dyskinesia or paradoxical bulging. It may be asymptomatic. However, complications including thromboembolism, heart failure, valvular regurgitation, arrhythmia, and rarely rupture may be the initial presentation. Diagnosis may be established by transthoracic echocardiography, left ventriculography, computed tomographic angiography, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging...
