OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to determine incidence of pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS) and evaluate PVS-related symptoms. BACKGROUND: The real-life incidence of PVS after radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) of atrial fibrillation (AF) is unknown. METHODS: All patients who underwent RFCA of AF from 2005 to 2016 with routine pre- and post-ablation screening by magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomography were included. Primary ablation strategy was PV antrum isolation alone in all patients...

We experienced 2 cases of primary pulmonary vein stenosis(PVS),which developed after a bidirectional Glenn procedure was performed for complex heart defects with normal pulmonary venous return. Although the patients successfully underwent primary sutureless repair for left PVS, restenosis of the affected pulmonary veins occurred several months after surgery in both patients. Stent implantation followed by balloon angioplasty was performed for stent stenosis in 1 patient without effect. However, the patient later underwent a successful fenestrated Fontan procedure...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary vein (PV) stenosis remains a feared complication of atrial fibrillation ablation. Little is known about outcomes in patients with severe PV stenosis, especially about repeat ablations. METHODS: In 10 368 patients undergoing atrial fibrillation ablation (2000-2015), computed tomography scans were obtained 3 to 6 months after ablation. The clinical outcomes in severe PV stenosis were determined. RESULTS: Severe PV stenosis was diagnosed in 52 patients (0...

In this heart failure patient, TEE images confirm the presence of the persistent left SVC with a dilated coronary sinus, severe mitral regurgitation, and aortic stenosis. Computed tomography reveals an isolated persistent left SVC and rules out anomalous pulmonary vein drainage or additional congenital disease.

Pulmonary veins stenosis in a Down Syndrome infant with normal connection pulmonary vein is rare and precise incidence of this disease is unknown. We report a case of progressive multiple pulmonary vein stenosis in a Down Syndrome infant with congenital heart disease and transient myeloproliferative leukaemia. This case-report aims to improve awareness among physicians and sonographers of this disease and the importance of pulmonary vein assessment in congenital heart disease with unexplained pulmonary hypertension...

RATIONALE: Pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS) is a rare cardiovascular deformity that can lead to high mortality if left untreated. Patients frequently experience multiple complications such as hemoptysis, pulmonary hypertension, bronchial venous rupture and cardiac insufficiency. Currently, pulmonary vein stenosis balloon dilatation (stent implantation) is the only treatment, and this can be performed under local or general anesthesia. However, a case report on the general anesthesia management of PVS has not been previously reported...

Primary iliac venous aneurysm is an exceedingly rare abnormality that can be complicated by pulmonary embolism, thrombosis, and rupture. Here we report the case of an otherwise healthy 40-year-old man with a unilateral external iliac vein aneurysm without any evidence of an arteriovenous fistula, proximal stenosis, or obstruction, as reported on computed tomography. Pulmonary embolism was diagnosed using 99m Tc-macroaggregated albumin scintigraphy. To prevent life-threatening complications, we treated the patient with anticoagulant therapy and performed aneurysmectomy with reconstruction using a saphenous vein graft patch...

PURPOSE: Symptomatic severe pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS) after catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF) is a rare but well-recognized complication. Treatment options include pulmonary vein angioplasty with or without drug eluting balloons or angioplasty with stent implantation. The treatment of choice is unclear. In our center, pulmonary vein stenting is the treatment of choice for significantly stenotic veins. We present the long-term clinical outcome of 9 patients treated with stent implantation...

The growth in percutaneous transluminal devices has enabled operators to tackle more complex, native, and post-bypass surgery anatomy. However, complications such as coronary artery dissection, coronary perforation, retrograde aortic dissection, arrhythmias, and acute coronary syndrome still occur with resulting mortality rates of up to 4.2% in complex interventions. Perforation of the circumflex artery is of particular interest in view of its position and relation to the surrounding cardiac structures. This is a site of potential fluid collection, and as the left atrium is fixed to the parietal pericardium at the entry of the pulmonary veins, fluid in the oblique sinus can accumulate enough pressure to compress the left atrium and the coronary sinus...

OBJECTIVE: To quantify outcomes of infants (<1 year of age) diagnosed with pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS). STUDY DESIGN: MEDLINE (PubMed), Scopus, and Web of Science were searched through February 1, 2017, with no language restrictions. Publications including infants diagnosed with primary PVS, defined as the absence of preceding intervention(s), were considered. The study was performed according to Meta-analysis of Observational Studies in Epidemiology guidelines, the Systematic Reviews, and Meta-Analysis checklist, and registered prospectively...

A 12-year-old child presented with recurrent respiratory infections and was diagnosed with Scimitar syndrome. Drainage of IVC and course of aberrant arterial supply from aorta were not clear by echocardiogram, and hence, additional imaging was planned. CT unraveled the presence of a rare combination of anomalous pulmonary venous connection (APVC) to IVC, with near-atresia/severe stenosis of IVC, superior to the drainage of scimitar vein. There was a prominent azygos vein with preferential contrast opacification on lower limb injection...

BACKGROUND: The incidence of pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS) after AF ablation following contemporary procedures remains unclear. We compared the incidence of PVS/narrowing (PVS/N) after PV isolation (PVI) for (1) 3-D mapping-guided wide-area encircling irrigated radiofrequency current (RFC) ablation; (2) first-third-generation big cryoballoon (CB1-3) ablation; and (3) laser balloon (LB) ablation.Methods and Results:All patients undergoing a second procedure between January 2012 and November 2016 were subgrouped according to index ablation (PVI): RFC; CB; or LB...

AIMS: Pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS) is a well recognized complication as a consequence of pulmonary vein isolation. In the current study, we sought to analyze potential anatomical and intraprocedural predictors of PVS during second-generation cryoballoon ablation, particularly focusing on the impact of freeze duration and number of cryoapplications. METHODS: Fifty-four patients who underwent cryoballoon ablation for atrial fibrillation were included retrospectively in this study...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the use of imatinib mesylate with or without bevacizumab targeting neoproliferative myofibroblast-like cells with tyrosine kinase receptor expression, as adjuncts to modern interventional therapies for the treatment of multivessel intraluminal pulmonary vein stenosis (PVS). We describe the 48- and 72-week outcomes among patients receiving imatinib mesylate with or without bevacizumab for multivessel intraluminal PVS. STUDY DESIGN: This single-arm, prospective, open-label US Food and Drug Administration approved trial enrolled patients with ≥2 affected pulmonary veins after surgical or catheter-based relief of obstruction between March 2009 and December 2014...

BACKGROUND: The optimal management and prognostic factors of postsurgical pulmonary vein stenosis remain controversial. We sought to determine current postsurgical pulmonary vein stenosis outcomes and prognostic factors in a multicentric study in the current era. METHODS: Seventy-five patients with postsurgical pulmonary vein stenosis who underwent 103 procedures in 14 European/North American centers (2000-2012) were included retrospectively. A specific pulmonary vein stenosis severity score was developed on the basis of the assessment of each pulmonary vein...
