INTRODUCTION: Patient foramen ovale (PFO) is a common and often incidental intraoperative finding during lung transplantation (LTx). We sought to characterize the potential outcomes related to the decision-making of whether the PFO was repaired or left unrepaired. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated bilateral LTx recipients between 2005 and 2015 from our prospective database. Incidence of postoperative stoke, 90-day mortality, and overall survival was compared between the PFO-positive and PFO-negative groups, and secondly compared between repaired PFO (rPFO) and non-repaired PFO (nrPFO) groups...

Coronary embolism is the underlying cause of 3% of acute coronary syndromes but is often not considered in the differential of acute coronary syndromes. It should be suspected in the case of high thrombus burden despite a relatively normal underlying vessel or recurrent coronary thrombus. Coronary embolism may be direct (from the aortic valve or left atrial appendage), paroxysmal (from the venous circulation through a patent foramen ovale), or iatrogenic (following cardiac intervention). Investigations include transesophageal echocardiography to assess the left atrial appendage and atrial septum and continuous electrocardiographic monitoring to assess for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation...

Objective: To analyze the prognosis and associated risk factors of pediatric idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension. Methods: A total of 119 patients under 18 years of age diagnosed as idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension in the Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension Center in Beijing Anzhen Hospital between June 2007 and May 2017 were enrolled in this retrospective study. The clinical informations and follow-up data were collected. The endpoints of follow-up were defined as death or undergoing lung transplantation...

BACKGROUND: Little is known regarding changes in treatment effect over time associated with patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure among patients with embolic stroke of unknown origin. METHODS: We reconstructed Kaplan-Meier curves for stroke from individual randomized trials comparing PFO closure vs. medical therapy among patients with embolic stroke. Random effects Cox-regression analyses were performed in order to estimate hazard ratios (HRs) with 95% confidence intervals (95%CIs)...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Previous systematic reviews and meta-analyses compared the efficacy and safety of patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure versus medical treatment in patients with cryptogenic stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). Recently, new evidence from randomized trials became available. METHODS: We searched PubMed until September 24, 2017, for trials comparing PFO closure with medical treatment in patients with cryptogenic stroke/TIA using the items: stroke or cerebrovascular accident or TIA and patent foramen ovale or paradoxical embolism and trial or study...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of percutaneous device closure of patent foramen ovale (PFO) for secondary prevention of ischemic stroke BACKGROUND: Stroke remains the leading cause of serious long-term disability in the United States. The effectiveness of a percutaneous PFO closure in the prevention of recurrent cryptogenic strokes has not been established. METHODS: We performed a literature search using PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, Google Scholar, and Internet-based sources from January 2003 to September 2017...

Extensive left main (LM) coronary artery thrombus is a rare and life-threatening angiographic finding with usual dramatic clinical presentation including hemodynamic instability and sudden cardiac death. The proper management of a big LM thrombus extending into aorta remains a challenging issue with no clear guidelines. In the following case report we present a 45-year-old patient with no apparent risk factors for coronary artery disease who presented with acute infero-lateral ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI)...

New evidence suggests that closure of a patent foramen ovale (PFO) plus medical therapy (MT; antiplatelet or anticoagulation) is superior to MT alone to prevent recurrent cryptogenic stroke. We performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials that compared PFO closure plus MT with MT alone in patients with cryptogenic stroke. The efficacy end points were recurrent stroke, transient ischemia attack, and death. The safety end points were major bleeding and newly detected atrial fibrillation. Trials were pooled using random effects and fixed effects models...

Contrasting with three randomized trials that failed to show any superiority of patent foramen ovale closure over antithrombotic therapy, two trials recently reported lower rates of stroke recurrence among patients assigned to patent foramen ovale closure than among those assigned to antiplatelet therapy. In addition, one of the initially negative trials concluded in favor of patent foramen ovale closure after an extended follow-up period. A better selection of patients, the use of reference treatment groups that included patients who received antiplatelet therapy alone (rather than antiplatelet drugs or oral anticoagulants, according to physician preference), and a longer follow-up of patients, may explain the divergent findings across studies...

Cardiac variant of total anomalous pulmonary venous return is a rare entity, whereby all the pulmonary veins drain directly to the right atrium or coronary sinus. The effective left heart blood flow channels through a small stretched patent foramen ovale and can often be confused with a variant of cor triatriatum. Cor triatriatum is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly where pulmonary veins drain to a persistent chamber above the left atrium with a membrane separating these two. There persists either a small aperture directly from the true to the accessory left atrium or none at all...

Cerebral air embolism is a rare clinical entity in day-to-day practice. The introduction of air into the venous or the arterial system can cause cerebral air embolism leading to severe neurological deficits. The common causes reported in the literature are iatrogenic; it can be caused by positive pressure maneuvers performed during cardiac resuscitation, lung biopsy, and the placement of venous catheters in the presence of a patent foramen ovale. We report a case of cerebral air embolism which has occurred secondary to lung laceration...

A 65-year-old woman with no significant prior medical history presented, in the postoperative course of a complicated cholecystectomy, several episodes of arterial desaturation. Pulmonary embolism was repeatedly suspected, but there was no evidence of pulmonary thrombus on the chest computed tomography angiographies obtained. As these episodes were mainly induced by postural changes, a platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome was suspected. A transthoracic echocardiogram was performed and revealed a patent foramen ovale...

REVIEW
P Syamasundar Rao, Andrea D Harris
The purpose of this review is to discuss the management of atrial septal defects (ASD), paying particular attention to the most recent developments. There are four types of ASDs: ostium secundum, ostium primum, sinus venosus, and coronary sinus defects. The fifth type, patent foramen ovale-which is present in 25 to 30% of normal individuals and considered a normal variant, although it may be the seat of paradoxical embolism, particularly in adults-is not addressed in this review. The indication for closure of the ASDs, by and large, is the presence of right ventricular volume overload...
