BACKGROUND: Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) often accompanies ischemic mitral regurgitation and is generally assumed to be a secondary consequence of altered hemodynamics of the left-sided regurgitation. We hypothesized that it may also be a direct consequence of right-sided ischemic disease. Therefore, our objectives were to (1) characterize the nature of this TR and (2) describe its time course after mitral valve surgery for ischemic mitral regurgitation, with or without concomitant tricuspid valve repair...

Gilbert's syndrome (GS) is an autosomal inherited disorder characterized by relative deficiency of glucuronyl transferase and poor uptake of unconjugated bilirubin by hepatocytes. Cardiac surgery on cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in these patients triggers further hepatic dysfunction. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) and Doppler assessment of hepatic vein help in assessing hepatic blood flow (HBF) during cardiac surgery. Here, we discuss anesthetic management and role of TEE in maintaining HBF perioperatively in a 25-year-old male patient with GS undergoing double valve replacement with tricuspid valve plasty...

MitraClip (MC) is an alternative therapeutic option for patients with severe mitral regurgitation (MR) who are at high surgical risk. Most candidates for MC have severe heart failure (HF) with increased N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-pro BNP) levels. We sought to clarify the response of NT-pro BNP after MC and to identify the determinants of NT-pro BNP nonresponders. Among 136 consecutive patients successfully treated with MC, we excluded 20 patients due to low baseline NT-pro BNP levels and therefore examined 116 patients...

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES: Imaging-based assessment of cardiovascular structure and function provides clinically relevant information in smokers. Non-cardiac-gated thoracic computed tomographic (CT) scanning is increasingly leveraged for clinical care and lung cancer screening. We sought to determine if more comprehensive measures of ventricular geometry could be obtained from CT using an atlas-based surface model of the heart. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Subcohorts of 24 subjects with cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and 262 subjects with echocardiography were identified from COPDGene, a longitudinal observational study of smokers...

Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is a common finding in patients with left-sided valvular or myocardial disease. However, many patients with severe symptomatic TR are deemed inoperable or at high surgical risk, often due to comorbidities and the need for redo sternotomy. Thus, despite the poor prognosis associated with this condition, few patients undergo isolated surgical tricuspid valve repair. Therefore, there is an unmet clinical need for less invasive therapeutic options for these patients. In recent times, several transcatheter therapies have emerged for treating TR, with promising safety and preliminary efficacy results...

The optimal decision regarding whether to repair or replace the tricuspid valve (TV) remains controversial in patients with very severe functional tricuspid regurgitation (TR). We sought to compare clinical outcomes of TV repair versus replacement for very severe TR associated with severe TV tethering. We included 96 consecutive patients (20 men, 58 ± 11 years of age) who had both severe tethering of TV and very severe functional TR and consequently underwent TV surgery during left-sided valve surgery. TV repair was performed on 79 patients (repair group), whereas 17 patients underwent TV replacement (replacement group)...

BACKGROUND: Tricuspid valve infective endocarditis (TVIE) causes septic pulmonary embolism (PE). However, the impact of vegetation size on PE is not fully elucidated. METHODS: In 26 consecutive patients with definite TVIE according to Duke criteria, we tested clinical, microbiological, and echocardiographic data including real time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (3DTEE) as potential predictors of PE. 3DTEE measurement of maximum length of vegetation (MLV) was obtained with Advanced QLAB Quantification Software by cropping the 3D volume with the appropriate 2D plane to obtain the largest value...

Rupture of aneurysm of sinus of Valsalva into the right atrium mimicking tricuspid valve endocarditis is a rare presentation. We review a case of spontaneous rupture of aneurysm of sinus of Valsalva into the right atrium presenting as a murmur. Transthoracic echocardiogram showed a mobile mass that appeared to be attached to the tricuspid valve leaflet with moderate tricuspid regurgitation suggestive of tricuspid valve endocarditis. The diagnosis was confirmed as spontaneous rupture of noncoronary sinus in to the right atrium by transesophageal echocardiogram...

Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is among the most common enzymatic disorders of red blood cells. Cardiac surgeries on this group of individuals are associated with an additional risk in terms of impaired oxygenation, prolonged ventilation and increased risk of haemolysis. These patients have a very low threshold for haemolysis due to oxidative stress. Many commonly used drugs also predispose the individual for haemolysis when they are subjected to surgery. Here we present a known case of G6PD deficient patient with symptoms of breathlessness for the last nine years who was taken for surgery with pre-planned precautionary measures to avoid unnecessary haemolysis...

Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality and is classified as massive (high risk), submassive (intermediate risk), or nonmassive (low risk) based on the hemodynamic status and clinical characteristics of the patient. At this time, the management of patients with submassive PE remains controversial and approaches for improving risk assessment are critical. In this review, we discuss several echocardiographic methods to assess right heart function that may aid in the risk assessment of patients with acute PE...
