Cardiac myxomas are frequently located in the left or right atria, with multiple locations being rare. We report a 59-year-old healthy female with 5 months of cough and exertional dyspnea. A transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) exhibits a 9 × 5 cm nonpedunculated tumor arising from the interatrial septum (IAS) and inhabiting both atria, but was unable to depict the relation with the IAS. Transesophageal echocardiography exposes a single tumor crossing the IAS through an ostium secundum atrial septal defect (ASD) causing right heart functional impairment...

A 74-year-old hemodialysis patient with a history of an atrial septum defect closure, coronary bypass surgery, and a St. Jude aortic prosthetic valve was diagnosed with pneumonia and volume overload. Blood cultures were positive for Listeria monocytogenes, and amoxicillin was given for 2 weeks. Immediately after discontinuation of amoxicillin, fever relapsed. Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography showed no sign of endocarditis. Given the fever relapse and 3 positive minor Duke criteria, an (18)F-FDG PET-CT scan ((18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography-computed tomography) scan was performed...

A 4-year-old boy had a 15-mm atrial septal defect repaired percutaneously with use of an Amplatzer Septal Occluder. At age 16 years, he presented with a week's history of fever, chills, dyspnea, fatigue, and malaise. Cultures grew methicillin-sensitive Staphylococcus aureus. A transesophageal echocardiogram showed a 1.25 × 1.5-cm pedunculated mass on the left aspect of the atrial septum just superior to the mitral valve, and a smaller vegetation on the right inferior medial aspect of the septum. At surgery, visual examination of both sides of the septum revealed granulation tissue, the pedunculated mass, the small vegetation, and exposed metal wires that suggested incomplete endothelialization of the occluder...

It is reported that 20% of cardiac myxomas are located in the right atrium. An 81-year-old man presented with dyspnea, general fatigue and leg edema lasting for a year. Echocardiography revealed an 80 mm tumor occupying the right atrium and the right ventricle. At surgery, the tumor attached to the atrial septum was removed with the surrounding septal wall. As the tricuspid annulus was dilated, tricuspid annuloplasty with an artificial ring was also carried out. After coming off cardiopulmonary bypass, the patient developed pulmonary hypertension with the pulmonary arterial pressure being 80% of the systemic pressure, which subsided gradually day by day...

Herein, we are presenting a case of persistent interatrial septal defect diagnosed during coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Twice, attempts had been made to close this shunt using amplatzer septal occlude. However, percutaneous technique had failed in both occasions. The patient presented with chest pain 4 years after the second attempt and required urgent CABG. Persistent shunt was repaired during surgery.

BACKGROUND: Embolization might complicate device closure of large atrial septal defects (ASDs) with deficient margins. When margins are deficient, a precariously placed device can appear to be held in good position by the rigid delivery cable. Once the cable is unscrewed, the device adopts the natural lie of the interatrial septum. This can occasionally expose the inadequately captured margins and lead to device embolization. Most embolizations occur immediately after release. Retrieval of the embolized device required prolonged fluoroscopy and sometimes open heart surgery...

Unroofed coronary sinus( UCS) is a rare cardiac anomaly and the most uncommon type of atrial septal defect. It is rarely diagnosed by only echocardiography prior to surgery. We herein report a case of UCS (partially unroofed terminal portion) without persistent left superior vena cava that was precisely diagnosed by cardiac multi-detector low computed tomography (MDCT). A 50-year-old asymptomatic man was admitted for cardiac evaluation. A transesophageal echocardiography showed a left to right shunt at the atrial level...

Acute left atrial thrombosis at the site of the resection of the primary cribriform septum is an exceedingly rare and important complication after atrial septal defect (ASD) closure with a pericardial or synthetic patch. This case report presents a mobile thrombus noted on the left atrium at the raw surface site of a resected cribriform primary septum that was not caught in the suture line with the pericardial patch for the closure of the ASD in a 30-year-old woman with an uncomplicated ASD surgery. The patient had no symptoms in the postoperative period, and routine postoperative transesophageal echocardiography revealed a large pedunculated and mobile mass (thrombosis) at the left atrial side of the interatrial septum at the level of the implanted pericardial patch...

AIMS: It is unknown whether right-ventricular (RV) volume overload caused by an atrial septal defect (ASD) still has its effect on RV deformation long after repair. We evaluated RV and left-ventricular (LV) deformation beyond 30 years after surgical ASD repair in childhood, and studied relationships with conventional diagnostic parameters. METHODS AND RESULTS: In this prospective study, we included 102 subjects: 51 patients with repaired ASD (39% male, age 43.3 ± 4...
