We present the case of a 69-year-old patient who was referred to the Department of Echocardiography for surgical treatment of severe tricuspid valve regurgitation (TVR) with advanced congestive heart failure. In 2013 the patient underwent unsuccessful percutaneous ablation for permanent atrial fibrillation. In 2015, following numerous episodes of atrial fibrillation and congestive heart failure with left pleural effusion, the patient was admitted to another center. A transthoracic echocardiogram showed severe TVR and moderate precapillary pulmonary hypertension, confirmed at right cardiac catheterization...

Background: Gonadal vein thrombosis (GVT) has been reported in association with malignancy and pelvic inflammatory conditions. Patients who develop GVT often require systemic anticoagulation to reduce the risk of pulmonary embolism and other local and distant thromboembolic effects. As the gonadal vein courses from the pelvis toward its outlet in the upper abdomen, its intimate relationship to the ureter in the setting of vascular pathology may pose a risk for urinary obstruction in the adult. We are reporting a rare case of GVT leading to ureteral obstruction and acute kidney injury (AKI) in a young otherwise healthy male and provide a review of similar literature...

A 49-year-old male patient presented due to recurrent pain and swelling in the left leg. The patient had had deep venous thrombosis with pulmonary embolism 5 years previously. Since then, he had been treated with Vit-k-antagonists. Pronounced paraumbilical collateral circulation of unknown origin was striking. Doppler sonographic evaluation pointed to May-Thurner syndrome. This was confirmed by phlebography. Venous stenting of the stenosis in the left iliac vein achieved long-term symptom improvement. This case report is intended to draw attention to the rare May-Thurner syndrome as an important differential diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis and, at the same time, identify diagnostic and therapeutic treatment strategies...

Aims: Pulmonary vein stenosis or occlusion (PVS/O) following catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation is a rare but potentially severe complication. Treatment options include angioplasty with or without stent implantation, but data on outcome and optimal treatment strategy are limited. We report long-term results after catheter-based treatment of patients with symptomatic PVS/O. Methods and results: Retrospective analysis was performed in patients undergoing pulmonary vein (PV) angiography for suspected PVS/O...

When the inferior caval vein is occluded or abnormal, jugular and hepatic veins provide alternative routes for interventions. For pulmonary artery stenting, transhepatic access may give a relatively straighter route than that from the jugular veins. We describe the challenges and strategies during transhepatic bilateral pulmonary artery stenting after arterial switch operation complicated by occluded inferior caval vein and congested hepatic veins.

Introduction Although the right jugular vein approach for percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation is well described, there are no reports that describe a percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation through a left superior caval vein to coronary sinus pathway. Case A 14-year-old female with tetralogy of Fallot, mesocardia, left superior caval vein draining into the coronary sinus, and hemiazygos continuation of the inferior caval vein underwent ventricular septal defect closure, with homograft insertion from the right ventricle to the pulmonary artery, patch augmentation of the left pulmonary artery, and creation of an atrial communication...

Bland-White-Garland (BWG) syndrome (anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery) is a rare disease which may result in myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure or sometimes death during the early infantile period. We present a 57-year-old female with BWG syndrome. At the age of 20, she was diagnosed with BWG syndrome and underwent coronary artery bypass grafting of a saphenous vein to the proximal portion of the anterior descending branch of the left coronary artery and ligation of the anomalous artery...

INTRODUCTION: Deep venous obstruction (DVO) has a great impact on quality of life (QoL) comparable to angina pectoris or chronic pulmonary disease. Post-thrombotic scar formation and May-Thurner syndrome (MTS) are the most common causes of DVO. Conventional treatment of DVO focuses on reducing pain or leg swelling by use of (pain) medication and therapeutic elastic stockings. In the past, a venous bypass was offered in severe post-thrombotic cases, but this procedure showed bad clinical and patency outcomes...

When there is no pulmonary vein reconnection after catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation, patients can experience recurrence of atrial fibrillation without clear evidence of non-pulmonary vein foci. We describe a patient with significant pulmonary vein stenosis and recurrent atrial fibrillation after four ablation procedures. After successful pulmonary vein stenting, the symptoms were resolved, and sinus rhythm was maintained for 2 years without treatment with antiarrhythmic medication. We believe pulmonary vein stenting potentially controlled atrial fibrillation by providing pulmonary vein pressure relief or by compressing the epicardial triggers occurring at the pulmonary vein ostium...

BACKGROUND: The first-line recommendation for treatment of acute iliofemoral deep vein thrombosis (IFDVT) is catheter-directed or pharmaco-mechanical thrombolysis (CDT/PCDT). Recent analysis of surgical thrombectomy has shown comparable results. However this procedure is not commonly given as much importance as interventional techniques. We analyzed patient outcome of surgical thrombectomy using modern endovascular techniques in both the short and long term. METHODS: All consecutive patients who underwent surgical thrombectomy at our institution between April 2008 and April 2017 were included...

BACKGROUND: Various conduits and stent-mounted valves are used as pulmonary valve graft tissues for right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction with good hemodynamic results. Valve replacement carries an increased risk of infective endocarditis (IE). Recent observations have increased awareness of the risk of IE after transcatheter implantation of a stent-mounted bovine jugular vein valve. This study focused on the susceptibility of graft tissue surfaces to bacterial adherence as a potential risk factor for subsequent IE...

Venous malformations have static venous lakes that predispose to spontaneous venous thrombosis within the malformation due to its low-flow static state. Thrombi of varying sizes can then embolize continually into the pulmonary arterial circulation, and occlude and narrow elastic pulmonary arteries causing chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). Pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (PTE) is potentially curative in CTEPH, but has not been previously reported in the setting of mediastinal and chest wall venous malformations...
