An 85-year-old man with a high risk for open heart surgery underwent a percutaneous closure of an atrial septal defect that lacked adequate aortic and superior rims. To avoid the risk for erosion, a Figulla Flex II ASD occluder was selected for the procedure. Implantation was successful, and no complications were observed during the 6 months of follow-up.

Decreased coaptation height in adults has been identified as a marker of early valve failure. We evaluated aortic valve coaptation and effective height in healthy children and in children with a ventricular septal defect (VSD) with aortic cusp prolapse (ACP), using echocardiography. We included 45 subjects with VSD with ACP, 27 did not develop aortic regurgitation (AR) by ACP and 18 developed AR by ACP, and 83 healthy children as controls. Aortic root anatomy was estimated using the parasternal long-axis view...

AIMS: In adults with congenital heart disease (CHD) heart failure is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality but experience with and reported outcome of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is limited. We investigated the efficacy of CRT in adults with CHD. METHODS AND RESULTS: This was a retrospective study including 48 adults with CHD who received CRT since 2003 in four tertiary referral centres. Responders were defined as patients who showed improvement in NYHA functional class and/or systemic ventricular ejection fraction by at least one category...

Carine Pavy, Olivier Ghez
The association of complete atrial ventricular septal defect (cAVSD) with tetralogy of Fallot remains a complex malformation that involves both inlet and outlet components of the ventricles. The surgical treatment used to be, in the 1980s, a staged repair strategy due to the high mortality rate of first primary repairs (PRs). However, nowadays, PRs have better outcomes. Although double-patch procedures are widely performed, this article describes the single-patch approach for cAVSD repair with transatrial-transpulmonary repair of the Fallot component with preservation of the pulmonary valve...

A superior sinus venosus defect is a congenital cardiac disease which is commonly associated with partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection. Here we present the Warden procedure - our preferred technique for repair. Our goal is to highlight the principles of repair with a focus on critical aspects of the surgical technique.

Muscular septal aneurysms are extremely rare without a ventricular septal defect and are diagnosed accidentally in most cases. Reported cases generally have rhythm disturbance or electrocardiographic findings of Wolf-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome. Presently described are 2 cases of ventricular septal aneurysm associated with WPW syndrome, which presented as dilated cardiomyopathy. Pre-excitation disappeared gradually in first patient. There was also concurrent decrease in degree of bulging of the interventricular septum and improvement of left ventricular systolic function...

Kabuki syndrome is a rare congenital malformation syndrome characterized by mental retardation, skeletal deformities, auditory dysfunction, cardiac defects, and distinctive facial appearance. Although complex cardiovascular malformations present in early childhood, rarely, atrioventricular septal defects may also present in young adults. Presently described is case of a 22-year-old female with KS who presented with ostium secundum atrial septal defect with deficient rim and idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura...

Aortic atresia with an associated ventricular septal defect and adequate sized left ventricle is extremely rare. We present two cases in which an alternate diagnosis was suggested on echocardiography because the hypoplastic aortic trunk was missed due to its small caliber. The final diagnosis was, however, clinched on dual source computed tomography, which not only showed the thin aortic trunk but also clearly depicted the coronary artery origins from the hypoplastic aortic root. To the best of our knowledge, use of multi-detector computed tomography in aortic atresia with well developed left ventricle has not been reported in literature till date...

BACKGROUND: Fetal echocardiography (FECG) is a key screening tool for prenatal cardiac abnormalities. Herein, we examined the ultrasonic factors determining prenatal ultrasonic diagnosis of isolated ventricular septal defect (IVSD). METHODS: The diagnostic role of ultrasonic factors was investigated in patients in middle or late pregnancy, diagnosed with IVSD by FECG and confirmed using postnatal echocardiography. RESULTS: One hundred and six patients with IVSD were enrolled; the majority had perimembranous VSD...

Isolated left subclavian artery is one of the rarer aortic arch anomalies. It has been associated with other congenital heart diseases, typically tetralogy of Fallot, double-outlet right ventricle, and atrial and ventricular septal defects. Its significant clinical implications include a left-to-right shunt from the vertebrobasilar system, which causes pulmonary overcirculation and subclavian steal. We present an unusual case of a premature infant who was diagnosed prenatally with congenital complete atrioventricular block and tricuspid atresia and was found to have an isolated left subclavian artery postnatally...

Atrioventricular septal defects represent a class of congenital cardiac malformations that vary in presentation and management strategy depending upon the severity of the particular lesions present. We present the case of a premature neonate who had a partial atrioventricular septal defect and an accessory mitral (or left atrioventricular) valve leaflet. The latter caused severe left ventricular outflow tract obstruction and severely depressed left ventricular function. We found only one other report of this atrioventricular valve abnormality in association with atrioventricular septal defect...

Transcatheter device implantation has become an attractive alternative to surgery in the closure of atrial septal defects in selected patients. However, it can lead to early and late sequelae, some of them life threatening. For example, 79 days before her admission to our emergency department with sudden-onset respiratory distress and respiratory arrest (leading to cardiac tamponade and rupture), a 22-year-old woman had undergone percutaneous closure of an atrial septal defect. We describe the damage and its treatment...

BACKGROUND: Postnatal human cardiomyocyte proliferation declines rapidly with age, which has been suggested to be correlated with increases in oxidative DNA damage in mice and plays an important role in regulating cardiomyocyte proliferation. However, the relationship between oxidative DNA damage and age in humans is unclear. METHODS: Sixty right ventricular outflow myocardial tissue specimens were obtained from ventricular septal defect infant patients during routine congenital cardiac surgery...

OBJECTIVE: This study evaluated the effect of echocardiographic left ventricular (LV) diastolic dysfunction on acute congestive heart failure after transcatheter atrial septal defect (ASD) closure in elderly patients. BACKGROUND: Although there is concern that LV diastolic dysfunction develops acute congestive heart failure after ASD closure, limited information is available regarding the influence, especially in elderly patients with severe LV diastolic dysfunction...

Completely asymptomatic sinus of Valsalva aneurysms are rare entities, and there is no consensus regarding their management. We present the case of a patient who underwent atrial septal defect device closure at 5 years of age and was lost to follow-up, then presented 6 years later with unruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm and was closely followed. The aneurysm eventually ruptured and was successfully operated on with good outcomes.

We describe the case of a 27-year-old gentleman who developed late-onset clubbing and cyanosis. Transoesophageal echocardiography revealed a 27-mm ostium secundum atrial septal defect and a large, floppy Eustachian valve directing right atrial blood to the left side of the heart.

A 77-year-old woman developed dyspnea over three years which occurred during sitting, standing or walking. Her physical examination, chest X-ray, ECG and cardiac catheterization results were all normal. A marked fall in arterial oxygen saturation was observed on sitting or standing. Transesophageal echocardiography showed an increase of right to left shunt flow on sitting. The patient was diagnosed with platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome and underwent the surgical closure of an atrial septal defect of 19 mm in diameter...
