Levoatriocardinal Vein and Hypoplastic left Heart

Chiaki Iida, Jun Muneuchi, Mamie Watanabe
We had two cases of neonates with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and intact atrial septum who had unique levoatriocardinal veins. Contrast-enhanced CT and angiography revealed that previously unknown communicating vessels ran from the top of the left atrium and drained into the right atrium. We emphasise that transcatheter atrial septostomy should be performed not through these communicating vessels but using the trans-septal approach in neonates with hypoplastic left heart syndrome and an intact atrial septum...

The levoatriocardinal vein provides alternative egress from the left atrium to the systemic veins in left-sided obstructive lesions. Although rare, it has been described in association with hypoplastic left heart syndrome. We report a case of hypoplastic left heart syndrome with levoatriocardinal vein and aberrant right subclavian artery where cardiac magnetic resonance imaging/angiography proved to be a valuable imaging modality for pre-operative evaluation.

Levoatriocardinal vein (LACV) is characterized by an abnormal connection between pulmonary and systemic venous return. This extremely rare cardiac malformation is usually associated with left-sided obstructive lesions including mitral atresia, hypoplastic left-heart syndrome, and abnormal pulmonary venous connection. Patients may have low systemic cardiac output and pulmonary venous obstruction symptoms. In this manuscript, we report a case with LACV and normal pulmonary venous return with absence of any intracardiac pathology...

Infants with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, an intact atrial septum and pulmonary venous hypertension, are critically ill and have a poor prognosis. This case describes relief of severe pulmonary edema in such a patient by stent placement in a stenotic levoatriocardinal vein, with subsequent successful surgical palliation.

We describe a 4-week-old baby with mitral atresia, hypoplastic left ventricle, ventricular septal defect, preductal coarctation and premature closure of the oval foramen whose only outlet from the left atrium was a stenosed right-sided levoatriocardinal vein and who in addition developed left atrial thrombi. Cross-sectional echocardiography was extremely helpful in establishing the diagnosis.

Two cases of the hypoplastic left heart syndrome with premature closure of the foramen ovale and levoatriocardinal veins are described and the literature is reviewed. One of the patients is the only case with both mitral and aortic valve atresia. The other is associated with the asplenia syndrome, double-outlet right ventricle without ventricular septal defect, and an anomalous connection of the left atrium to the right auricle.
