Hydatid disease is a rare parasitic disease, which mainly involves liver then lung tissues. Cardiac involvement is very rare, especially when there is not hepatic involvement. We describe a 47-year-old woman with a history of a lung hydatid cyst who was referred to Rajaei Heart Center, Tehran, Iran in 2012. Her chest computed tomographic scan showed a cardiac mass. Echocardiographic examination illustrated a large, well-defined heterogeneous mass (4.5 × 2.5 cm) in the roof of the right atrium with attachment to the crista terminalis without compressive effect on the inferior and superior venae cavae...

Coronary artery disease is a frequent comorbidity in patients undergoing major thoracic surgery. Simultaneous operations eliminate the necessity of a second operation and, more importantly, minimize the delay in compulsory postoperative oncological therapy. We describe a relaxing incision in the contralateral pericardium, which allows for simple displacement of the heart. This maneuver improves exposure of the pulmonary hilum and middle mediastinum on the side of resection.

BACKGROUND: This report presents a case of a 57- year old female with advanced Hepatic Alveolar Echinococcosis causing a secondary Budd-Chiari Syndrome due to infiltration of the suprahepatic inferior vena cava treated successfully by liver transplantation. CASE PRESENTATION: A temporary veno-venous bypass was introduced, but a typical end to end cavo-caval anastomosis wasn't possible in this case. In order to access a disease free part of the inferior vena cava, an oval window of the diaphragm was excised, providing communication between the peritoneum and pericardium...

Constrictive pericarditis (CP) represents a form of severe diastolic heart failure (HF), secondary to a noncompliant pericardium. The true prevalence of CP is unknown but it is observed in 0.2-0.4% of patients who have undergone cardiac surgery or have had pericardial trauma or inflammation due to a variety of etiologies. Despite its poor prognosis if untreated, CP is a potentially curable disease and surgical pericardiectomy can now be performed at low perioperative mortality in tertiary centers with surgical expertise in pericardial diseases...

REVIEW
Albree Tower-Rader, Deborah Kwon
Pericardial masses/tumors, cysts, and diverticula are quite rare. Presentation is variable and often patients may be asymptomatic with pericardial involvement initially only detected at time of autopsy. When patients do present with symptoms they are often non-specific and often mimic other conditions of the pericardium such as pericarditis, pericardial effusion, constriction or tamponade. Therefore, echocardiography and cross-sectional imaging is essential in identifying and characterizing pericardial disease...

The normal gross anatomy and light microscopy of the human pericardium is presented in detail that allows easy correlation with current cardiac imaging modalities. The anatomical structures of the parietal pericardium are shown from its mediastinal surface, including its ligaments to the sternum diaphragm and vertebral column. The attachments of the parietal pericardium to the great vessels showing the intrapericardial location of the root of the aorta and pulmonary artery are documented. Also the attachments of the parietal pericardium to the venae cavae and the pulmonary veins are illustrated in detail...

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated heart disease encompasses a broad spectrum of diseases. HIV infection may involve the pericardium, myocardium, coronary arteries, pulmonary vasculature, and valves, as well as the systemic vasculature. Access to combination antiretroviral therapy, as well as health resources, has had a significant influence on the prevalence and severity of the effects on each cardiac structure. Investigations over the recent past have improved our understanding of the epidemiology and pathophysiology of HIV-associated cardiovascular disease...

BACKGROUND: Campylobacter spp. are a common cause of mostly self-limiting enterocolitis. Although rare, pericarditis and myopericarditis have been increasingly documented as complications following campylobacteriosis. Such cases have occurred predominantly in younger males, and involved a single causative species, namely Campylobacter jejuni. We report the first case of myopericarditis following Campylobacter coli enterocolitis, with illness occurring in an immunocompetent middle-aged female...

Here we report the early outcome of mitral valve replacement using a newly designed stentless mitral valve for failure of initial mitral valve repair. Mitral valve plasty (MVP) for mitral regurgitation is currently a standard technique performed worldwide. However, whether mitral valve repair should be performed for patients with advanced leaflet damage or complicated pathology remains controversial. Mitral valve replacement might be feasible for patients who have undergone failed initial MVP; however, it is not an optimal treatment because of poor valve durability and the need for anticoagulative therapy...

A 55-year-old man with autoimmune deficiency syndrome presented with an infected left ventricular pseudoaneurysm and sepsis. The aneurysmectomy consisted of a Dor-style pericardial patch plus debridement of the abscess cavities. The infected pseudoaneurysm recurred, much larger, within five months due to persistent infected abscess cavities. The second repair was done without a Dor-style patch and with an omental flap. No recurrence has occurred one year after the second repair, but the patient has asymptomatic, partial gastric herniation inside the pericardium...

INTRODUCTION: Mansonella perstans is a human filarial parasite transmitted by biting midges (Diptera: Ceratopogonidae) belonging to the genus Culicoides and it is widely spread in sub-Saharan Africa. While most cases are asymptomatic, mansonelliasis can be associated with angioedema, arthralgia, swellings, pain in the scrotum or in serous cavities such as the pleura, the peritoneum, the pericardium, etc. Mansonelliasis can be really hard to treat, but it has been shown that an intensive treatment using albendazole can clear the parasite...

Solitary fibrous tumours are of mesenchymal origin and comprise of uncommon spindle cell neoplasias. Most commonly the lesions arise from pleura but other rarer sites include lungs, peritoneum, pericardium, nasal cavities, thyroid, parotid gland and orbit. We report the case of a 41-year-old male patient who presented to us with a painless, progressive growth of a mass in the superior part of left orbit with proptosis and inferotemporal displacement of the left eye. Computed Tomography (CT) scan revealed homogeneous enhancing lesion in the superior compartment of left orbit in the extraconal region, extending intraconally and distorting the globe...

Complete aortic valve leaflet replacement has been described for decades. Recently, Glutaraldehyde-fixed autologous pericardium has been used for this purpose, and good long-term results are emerging. Outcomes seem to be better than with prosthetic aortic valve replacement, and similar to native valve repair. Multiple strategies have been used for the design of replacement leaflets, including the measurement of inter-commissural chord length (as in the accompanying paper), and multiplying annular diameter by 1...

PURPOSE: The edentulous severely atrophic maxilla, as consequence of alveolar bone resorption and pneumatisation of the maxillary sinus, represents a serious limitation to the implant rehabilitation. Implants insertion via palatal approach (PA), in combination with relatively minimally invasive techniques aimed at increasing bone volume without the use of autologous bone harvesting is a valid alternative among the options for the rehabilitation of the upper jaw. CLINICAL CASE: In a 70-year-old female, with a severe maxillary atrophy, 6 spiral taper implants were placed with the PA, combined with the bilateral transcrestal elevation of both the sinus floors and nasal cavities; a further GBR, with resorbable pericardium membrane covering a termoplastic allograft associated to a xenograft, was performed...
