INTRODUCTION: Bladder calculi are a known complication of bladder augmentation. Open cystolithotomy remains the preferred option for treating large or multiple stones. Increasingly, however, minimal access techniques have been used. Reports of Mitrofanoff cystolitholapaxy are rare and have been limited to adults. This study presented a two centre series of children treated by cystolitholapaxy via the Mitrofanoff/Monti channel. MATERIALS AND METHODS: With institutional approval the current study retrospectively reviewed and identified 14 patients, on a prospective database, who underwent Mitrofanoff cystolitholapaxy to treat bladder calculi at two independent institutions in the UK and Chile between 2004 and 2016...

REVIEW
P Syamasundar Rao, Andrea D Harris
This review discusses the management of ventricular septal defects (VSDs) and atrioventricular septal defects (AVSDs). There are several types of VSDs: perimembranous, supracristal, atrioventricular septal, and muscular. The indications for closure are moderate to large VSDs with enlarged left atrium and left ventricle or elevated pulmonary artery pressure (or both) and a pulmonary-to-systemic flow ratio greater than 2:1. Surgical closure is recommended for large perimembranous VSDs, supracristal VSDs, and VSDs with aortic valve prolapse...

AIMS: Percutaneous left atrial appendage (LAA) occlusion is occasionally incomplete, with residual permeability of the LAA on cardiac computed tomography. The cause for this is unclear. Our objective was to determine if residual permeability was related to incomplete endothelialization. METHODS: A total of 35 consecutive patients contraindicated for anticoagulant therapy admitted for LAA occlusion were included; 12 patients received a Watchman device (Boston Scientific) and 23 patients received an Amplatzer Cardiac Plug (St...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to clarify the influence of the ASD closure by occluder device on right ventricular acute and long-term changes in longitudinal systolic strains, by evaluating right ventricular wall deformation in children using speckle tracking echocardiography (STE). METHODS AND MATERIALS: We enrolled 30 children with ASDs and 40 controls in our study. The Amplatzer atrial defect occluder was used to close the ASDs. Transthoracic echocardiographic examinations were performed at 3 points in time: the day before closure, 1 day after closure, and 3 months after closure...

The vertical vein is sometimes left open in repair of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection. It usually closes later but can remain patent leading to a significant shunt. We describe a recanalized vertical vein in a 7-year-old having undergone repair in infancy. It was closed using an Amplatzer device.

The authors present the case of a 41-year-old woman, who presented with moderate pericardial effusion and bilateral pleural effusion 11 months following a secundum atrial septal defect closure with an Amplatzer septal occluder (ASO) device. The acute presentation responded well to diuretics and a short course of corticosteroid therapy. The patient, however, continued to experience pleuritic chest pain and a recurrence of pericardial effusion a month later. The patient showed significant symptomatic improvement with a 2-month course of down-titrating prednisolone...

Cerebral aneurysms in patients with extreme proximal tortuosity may contraindicate endovascular therapy as a result of both the approach and an inability to navigate a coil-compatible microcatheter into the aneurysm due to microcatheter length. We present a 72 year-old male with multiple medical comorbidities admitted with a grade 3, ruptured pericallosal aneurysm. Aortoiliac disease contraindicated a transfemoral approach and thus a 6 French 105 cm guide catheter was advanced through a 6 French short radial sheath into a bovine left common carotid artery...

AIMS: About one-third of ischemic stroke are cryptogenic. Paradoxical embolism through patent foramen ovale (PFO) has been identified as a possible cause of cryptogenic stroke. Therefore, PFO closure has been considered for secondary prevention of cryptogenic stroke. However, randomized clinical trials (RCTs) comparing PFO closure versus medical therapy led to conflicting results. Our objectives were to examine if PFO closure is superior to medical therapy alone for secondary prevention of cryptogenic stroke and to investigate whether PFO closure is associated with an increased incidence of atrial fibrillation/atrial flutter (AFL)...

Trans-catheter device closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) via femoral route is the commonly used, safe and effective procedure. Trans-jugular approach has been successfully used in older children with interrupted inferior vena cava. We report a case of successful occlusion of PDA using Amplatzer duct occluder (ADO) via trans-jugular approach following difficulties encountered in gaining femoral venous access. A 6-month-old male infant, weighing 8 kg was admitted for percutaneous catheter closure of PDA...

Introduction The rupture of thoracoabdominal aneurysms (rTAA) represents one of the major challenges to the vascular surgeon. Recent developments in the endovascular armamentarium and the high mortality from open surgery make endovascular treatment an attractive option. Devices to be used in an emergency environment should be "off-the-shelf" and include, among others, EVAR snorkel/chimney and branched endoprosthesis (T-branch, Cook®). METHODS: We describe the case of a 70-year-old patient who was admitted to the emergency room due continuous low back pain with 3 days of evolution...

Atrial septal device occluders such as amplatzer occluder have been designed to close atrial septal defects of paten formal ovale. Off label use of this device has been reported in pathological conditions that connect two vascular compartments with narrow neck. In this report, we describe a successful closure of a traumatically occurred AV fistula between iliac artery and iliac vein using amplatzer occluder device that has not been reported previously. This rare case is followed by a review of the literature...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to assess procedural characteristics, early clinical outcome, and long-term complications after transcatheter closure of atrial septal defect (ASD) in children. BACKGROUND: Transcatheter closure has become the preferred strategy in most cases of isolated secundum ASD. However, reported experience in the pediatric population is limited. METHODS: A 1998 to 2016 retrospective multicenter study was performed in 9 French tertiary institutions...

A significant prosthetic paravalvular leak is an uncommon and severe postsurgical complication correlated to the occurrence of congestive heart failure and hemolytic anemia. Percutaneous treatment has become an attractive and effective proposal to relieve symptoms and reduce complications in patients whose high rate of morbidity/mortality precludes a new surgery. This is the case of an 81-year-old patient with a history of biological aortic valve replacement seeking medical help due to heart failure and hemolytic anemia, with a prosthetic paravalvular regurgitation jet and high surgical mortality according to EuroSCORE II...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous left atrial appendage occlusion (LAAO) is an alternative to anticoagulation in atrial fibrillation patients at high bleeding risk. Dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT) is generally recommended in the months following the procedure to prevent thrombotic complications. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of DAPT after LAAO in a single-centre population of high bleeding risk patients. METHODS: All patients who received DAPT after LAAO using the Amplatzer Cardiac Plug at Jessa Hospital (Hasselt, BE) between February 2011 and October 2016 were included...

BACKGROUND: Patients with history of cryptogenic stroke are more likely to have a patent foramen ovale (PFO) and should be managed with antithrombotic agents, while the alternative option is percutaneous closure of PFOs. Our aim was to perform a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing percutaneous closure vs. medical treatment for patients with PFO and prior cryptogenic stroke. METHODS: Medline, Scopus and Cochrane databases were reviewed...

A 77-year-old Caucasian woman with recent abdominal surgery was diagnosed with multiple paradoxical systemic emboli in the mesenteric and renal circulation. Diagnosis was made by direct visualisation of a serpentine thrombus traversing both atria through patent foramen ovale (PFO) by transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE). Concomitantly, the patient was found to have deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. A decision was made to pursue cardiothoracic surgery preceded by inferior vena cava filter placement...
