BACKGROUND: Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) with or without left ventricular apical aneurysm (LVA) had been studied in the past. Midventricular obstruction associated with HCM and LVA is a unique entity that has not been distinguished previously as a separate phenotypic disease in HCM patients. METHODS: A systematic review of Pubmed and Google Scholar was conducted from inception until September 2017 for all observational studies conducted on HCM with midventricular obstruction and LVA...

BACKGROUND: In Marfan syndrome early impairment of left ventricular systolic function has been reported. Our aim was to evaluate the left ventricular systolic function in young adults with Marfanoid habitus (MH) (includes arachnodactylia, dolichostenomelia, high palate, deformations of the thorax). METHODS: We studied 137 young subjects (mean age 21.3±1.5) - 58 male, 79 female. Transthoracic echocardiography (Vivid 7 Dimension, GE) was performed in 24 asymptomatic MH with excluded Marfan syndrome and 42 healthy control subjects...

Background: Acute hydrocephalus can cause neurological deterioration after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH). Predicting which patient would require shunting is challenging. Methods: This prospective study was conducted upon twenty patients who suffered acute hydrocephalus due to subarachnoid hemorrhage of ruptured aneurysms. Surgical or non-surgical management of hydrocephalus was conducted. Glasgow Coma scale (GCS) was assessed, and hydrocephalus was graded by bicaudate index...

OBJECTIVE: We present our experience with stent techniques in the management of acutely ruptured aneurysms, focusing on aneurysm occlusion rates, intraprocedural complications, and late outcomes. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the clinical records of patients treated by stent techniques during the early acute phase of aneurysmal rupture, from June 2011 to June 2016. Patients who underwent stenting for the management of unruptured aneurysms, or in a delayed fashion for a ruptured lesion, were excluded...

Over the years, the surgery of ventricular postinfarction aneurysm has evolved from linear resection to endoaneurysmorrhaphy using a patch. Technically, several aims that include the restoration of ventricular shape and function, exclusion of dead space, minimization of the risk of thrombus formation and restoration of valve function are pursued. Herein is reported the case of a 58-year-old male with a giant inferobasal aneurysm involving the mitral valve apparatus who underwent successful endoaneurysmorrhaphy...

Here we present a 46-yr-old man with recurrent syncopal episodes thought to be of cardiac origin. He was eventually found to harbor a giant, partially thrombosed, saccular aneurysm arising from the A1/A2 segment of the right anterior cerebral artery with foramen of Monro obstruction and a trapped left-sided ventricular system. An azygous left A2 artery segment supplied both callosomarginal arteries. We performed an in situ side-to-side anastomosis between the distal left azygous anterior cerebral artery and the right pericallosal artery, which was previously supplied by the right A1...

Aspergillus endocarditis is a rare infection and reported mainly in immunocompromised hosts. We report a case of mitral valve aspergillus endocarditis with ventricular myocardial invasion, cerebral vasculitis and intracranial fungal aneurysm formation in a patient with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). This case illustrates the importance of prompt investigation and treatment of masses seen on an echocardiogram for rare infections such as Aspergillus endocarditis in immunocompromised patients.

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to determine the impact of intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) on the cognitive prognosis of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) due to ruptured cerebral aneurysm, independent of the presence of intraparenchymal hemorrhage, hydrocephalus or vasospasm. PATIENT AND METHODS: A Retrospective review of a prospectively collected database of patients with aneurysmal SAH from July 2009 to November 2016 was performed. Patients were included if they had a saccular aneurysm with a Hunt-Hess grade (HHG) 1-3...

BACKGROUND: Predominant cardiovascular manifestations in the spectrum of Heritable Thoracic Aortic Disease include by default aortic root aneurysms- and dissections, which may be associated with aortic valve disease. Mitral- and tricuspid valve prolapse are other commonly recognized features. Myocardial disease, characterized by heart failure and/or malignant arrhythmias has been reported in humans and in animal models harboring pathogenic variants in the Fibrillin1 gene. METHODS: Description of clinical history of three cases from one family in Ghent (Belgium) and one family in St...

Branched thoracic aortic aneurysm repair requires arterial access from above the diaphragm in order to insert the visceral branches. This is routinely performed from the subclavian, axillary or carotid arteries and less commonly direct thoracic aorta puncture. The left ventricular apex is an alternative access route which is commonly used for percutaneous aortic valve replacement and rarely used for EVAR, FEVAR and TEVAR access. Here we describe two patients for which the left ventricular apex was the most suitable available access to the visceral branches during a branched thoracic aortic aneurysm repair...

INTRODUCTION: Endovascular aortic interventions are suitable alternatives to open surgery, being less invasive and having lower mortality and complications. Accurate positioning of the stent graft is a critical point because of systolic thrush. Techniques used to prevent it include pharmacological (antihypertensive drugs, nitroglycerin, adenosine) and mechanical methods (temporary caval occlusion by balloon). Rapid Right Ventricular Pacing (RRVP) is an emerging alternative with good patient tolerance and low level of complications...

Patients with cardiac disease have high mortality rates, mainly owing to shock. Therefore, evaluation of cardiac function is one of the most challenging issues in the intensive and critical care unit. Cardiac point-of-care tests using ultrasound, such as focus assessed transthoracic echo (FATE) and rapid ultrasound in shock (RUSH). are useful for diagnosis and initial care of such patients. The author will introduce first a basic FATE protocol of how to scan from position 1-4, including subcostal 4-chamber, apical 4-chamber, parasternal long and short axis, and pleural scanning...

Surgical myocardial revascularization in patients with reduced left ventricular function has been a matter of debate for decades. Recently published 10-years extension follow-up of the STICH trial have conclusively demonstrated benefit of surgical myocardial revascularization in patients with significant coronary artery disease and low left ventricular ejection fraction. However, selection of patients for surgery remains challenging as well as decision to perform percutaneous rather than surgical revascularization in this class of patients...

OBJECTIVE: Ascending aortic aneurysm (AAA) is one of the major causes of ventricular diastolic dysfunction. Diastolic dysfunction can induce ventricular repolarization dispersion. Nevertheless, myocardial repolarization dispersion is not yet to be fully evaluated in patients with AAA. We aimed to evaluate ventricular repolarization using QT and Tp-Te interval and corrected (c) Tp-Te/QT ratio in patients with AAA. METHODS: One hundred-four patients with AAA without coronary artery disease (CAD) served as the aneurysm group and 82 patients having a normal aortic diameter as the control group...

Pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum and congenital left ventricular aneurysms are both rare, representing <1 and <0.1% of CHD, respectively. The association of left ventricular aneurysms and pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum has been documented in the literature, but all the previous case reports have involved children with acquired left ventricular aneurysms. We report an interesting case of a child with both pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum and a congenital left ventricular aneurysm...

BACKGROUND: Stenting and flow diversion for aneurysmal sub arachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) require the use of dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT). OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether DAPT is associated with hemorrhagic complication following placement of external ventricular drains (EVD) in patients with aSAH. METHODS: Rates of radiographically identified hemorrhage associated with EVD placement were compared between patients who received DAPT for stenting or flow diversion, and patients who underwent microsurgical clipping or coiling and did not receive DAPT by way of a backward stepwise multivariate analysis...
