PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Survival after the Fontan procedure for palliation of single ventricle congenital heart disease has improved. However, adults with Fontan circulation are at risk for several complications including heart failure, thromboembolism, and protein-losing enteropathy. This review discusses the role of noninvasive imaging for surveillance and early detection of anatomic and functional abnormalities of the Fontan circulation that can impact the risk for Fontan failure over time...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Patients with complete and congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries commonly survive into adulthood and present with a vast array of clinical residua. RECENT FINDINGS: Echocardiography remains the primary imaging modality in the routine assessment of the adult with transposition of the great arteries. It provides a comprehensive anatomic and hemodynamic evaluation. Limitations to echocardiography include evaluation of the following: the systemic right ventricle, baffle patency following atrial switch procedure, coronary arteries following arterial switch procedure or Nikadoh, and multilevel right ventricular outflow tract obstruction...

We report a clinical case of a 40-year-old male with surgically corrected congenital heart disease (CHD) 10 years earlier: closure of ostium primum, mitral annuloplasty, and aortic valve and root surgery. The patient was admitted with acute heart failure. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) revealed a dysmorphic and severely incompetent aortic valve, a partial tear of the mitral valve cleft repair and annuloplasty ring dehiscence. A true left ventricular-to-right atrial shunt confirmed a direct Gerbode defect...

Congenital anomalies of the coronary arteries can be divided into two broad categories: those that alter myocardial perfusion and those that do not. In coronary anomalies not altering myocardial perfusion, the coronary arteries originate from the aorta, but their origins are in unusual positions. Although myocardial perfusion is normal, the angiographer may have trouble locating them. Patients with an anomalous left main coronary artery arising from the right sinus of Valsalva are presented. The diagnosis was made by coronary angiography, transesophageal echocardiography and multislice computed tomography (MSCT)...

Ectopic thyroid is a rare congenital embryonic anomaly. Ectopic thyroid tissue can be located anywhere during its descent, but it is found primarily at the base of the tongue and in the mediastinum. It is very rarely found in the heart. Here, we report a rare case of cardiac ectopic thyroid tissue in a 53-year-old woman who presented with chest pain. Echocardiography revealed an intracardiac mass that was removed successfully. Histopathology confirmed that the mass was thyroid tissue without malignancy.

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) is a congenital cardiac disease with myocardial involvement, most probably right ventricular (RV) dysfunction, accounting for 20% of sudden cardiac deaths. Characterized by the fibro-fatty infiltration of the RV free wall, ARVD/C presents in adolescents with ventricular arrhythmias and heart failure symptoms and as biventricular failure in adults. The coronary risk in these patients is not clear. We present an incidental finding: the left anterior descending artery cut-off in a middle-aged man with ARVD/C...

Sinus of Valsalva aneurysm is a rare congenital cardiac abnormality and is usually diagnosed when it ruptures. An asymptomatic 55-year-old male of unruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm of noncoronary cusp was on medical follow-up. At 2-year follow-up, there was thrombus formation in the aneurysm, mimicking right atrium tumor on 2D transthoracic echocardiography. Cardiac computed tomography showed filling defect in the aneurysm suggestive of thrombus. Considering the high risk of systemic emboli surgery was performed, and aneurysm was repaired with Dacron patch...

Congenital right atrial aneurysm is a rare abnormality and may easily be confused with various anomalies, such as pericardial effusion, pericardial cysts, tumors, and Ebstein's anomaly. Patients with right atrial aneurysm may be asymptomatic; but some patients may develop life-threatening complications, such as arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, or pulmonary embolism. Therefore, it is essential for correct diagnosis and appropriate patient management. We report a case of giant right atrial aneurysm in a 7-year-old boy who presented with progressive protrusion of chest...

The incidence of congenital heart disease (CHD) has been increasing in the adult patient population in part as a result of better patient survival. Patients with more severe CHD are living longer. Nearly all adults with known CHD require periodic imaging as a means of monitoring their disease process. Furthermore, adult patients with suspected CHD require imaging as a means of definitive diagnosis. As a result, it is important for both the referring clinician and the imager to be aware of the most appropriate imaging modality needed to obtain the data most needed to direct the next steps in patient care...

A 29-year-old woman was referred to our hospital due to exacerbation in dyspnea on exertion and easy fatigability. A known case of congenitally corrected transposition of the great vessels and congenital complete heart block, she had already received a permanent single-chamber pacemaker. Decision was made to implant a biventricular pacemaker for the treatment of the failing heart. Excellent coronary sinus lead implantation was done, conferring amelioration of symptoms, QRS narrowing in the electrocardiogram, and improvement of systemic ventricular systolic function in echocardiography...

Double-chambered right ventricle (DCRV) is a developmental cardiac anomaly in which anomalous muscle bundles divide the right ventricular (RV) cavity into two chambers. It is usually associated with other congenital cardiac defects, of which ventricular septal defect is the most common association. Isolated DCRV with an intact interventricular septum is very rarely reported. It manifests itself usually in adolescence and adults as the obstruction progresses gradually. It is important to recognize this anomaly as it can progress to severe RV failure if unaddressed...
