INTRODUCTION: Because of the unusual anatomy of an anomalous origin of the right coronary artery from the left sinus of Valsalva, selective cannulation of the guiding catheter in percutaneous coronary intervention for these cases is always challenging. CASE PRESENTATION: A 58-year-old Japanese man was admitted to our hospital complaining of worsening exertional chest pain. He was suspected of having unstable angina pectoris and underwent cardiac catheterization...

The minimally invasive surgical transthoracic occlusion of an atrial septal defect (ASD) or a ventricular septal defect (VSD) is an increasingly widespread alternative treatment for congenital heart disease. The aim of this study is to summarize our clinical experience with minimally invasive surgical transthoracic occlusion of ASD and VSD without cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Between April 2011 and October 2012, 27 patients with ASD and 95 patients with VSD (78 men and 44 women) were considered for minimally invasive surgical transthoracic occlusion without CPB...

BACKGROUND: For medium and large coronary artery fistula (CAF), the initially selected device sometimes has to be exchanged by reconstruction of track wire loop due to the complexity of CAF. OBJECTIVES: We sought to evaluate the feasibility and safety of transcatheter closure of medium and large CAF by using the wire-maintaining technique (WMT). METHODS: A total of 18 patients aged 15-56 years with congenital CAF underwent percutaneous transcatheter closure by WMT between April 2006 and October 2012...

Despite advances in surgical techniques and postoperative medical management, the mortality rates for cardiac reoperations remain high. The risk is most commonly associated with failed resternotomy complicated by fatal injury to the myocardium or its structures. This short case report documents the first use of an endoluminal balloon occlusive device in order to prevent aneurysmal sack damage and coronary vessel injury in a patient with a giant aortic aneurysm after failed aortic surgery. The safe aortic occlusion allowed for closed-chest cardioplegia delivery and subsequent aortic unloading, thus facilitating a difficult but uneventful resternotomy...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter closure (TCC) of ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (RSVA) is an alternative strategy to surgery, but there is a lack of long-term outcome data. METHODS AND RESULTS: From 2004 to 2012, 17 patients (8 males, 9 females) were treated with patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) occluders by antegrade venous approach and were followed for 18-102 months. Of the 17 patients, transthoracic echocardiography revealed rupture of the right coronary sinus into the right ventricle in 9 and into the right atrium in 4, and noncoronary sinus rupture into the right ventricle in 3 and into the right atrium in 1...

OBJECTIVE: Although the technique of totally endoscopic robotic mitral valve repair (TERMR) has been well described, few reports have examined the results of peripheral perfusion with balloon clamping. We analyzed the outcomes of TERMR performed using this strategy. METHODS: A total of 108 consecutive patients underwent TERMR by a 2-surgeon team. The preoperative evaluation included chest computed tomography and abdominal and pelvis computed tomography. Additional procedures included appendage exclusion in 96, patent foramen ovale closure in 29, cryoablation in 16, tricuspid valve repair in 2, and septal myectomy in 2...

BACKGROUND: The anatomical variants of the relations of the left circumflex artery (LCx) andthe coronary sinus (CS) determine the safety of percutaneous mitral annuloplasty (PMA) asan occlusion of the LCx and its consequences might occur in some cases. Thus, knowledge ofthe anatomy of cardiac anatomy and any variations are important for surgeons. METHODS: In 320 (126 women, age 59 ± 11) patients, a 64-slice computed tomography (MSCT) (Aquilion 64) was performed due to a suspicion of coronary artery disease...

OBJECTIVE: Transcatheter aortic valve implantation gained clinical relevance with an impressive and peerless power; however, the procedure induces unsolved complications such as paravalvular leakage, occlusion of coronary ostia, and vascular complications. The safe removal of bulky calcified valves will improve the outcome, well known through the open surgical procedure. In this article, a new stapler-based resection and implantation device as well as a new approach for valve isolation during normal heart cycle without extracorporeal circulation will be analyzed...

A persistent left superior vena cava (LSVC) is a common venous anomaly, occurring in up to 10% of patients with congenital heart defects. Usually, a LSVC drains into the coronary sinus, then to the right atrium. The LSVC can drain directly to the left atrium, resulting in a right-to-left shunt and systemic desaturation. Historically, surgery has been used to address this lesion. Transcatheter occlusion of the LSVC is an alternative to surgery. We report the novel use of the transseptal approach to access the LSVC, and device occlusion using the Amplatzer Vascular Plug-II...

BACKGROUND:  Myocardial reperfusion is frequently suboptimal after ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) treated by primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Using a balloon-tipped catheter positioned in the coronary sinus (CS), pressure-controlled intermittent coronary sinus occlusion (PICSO) results in an intermittent obstruction of coronary venous outflow of the left anterior descending artery (LAD), and may improve myocardial perfusion by augmenting redistribution of blood to the border zone of ischemic myocardium...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is associated with a risk of coronary obstruction. This complication is potentially lethal when the origin of the coronary arteries is anomalous. We describe two cases of TAVI with the SAPIEN XT (Edwards Lifesciences) and CoreValve devices (Medtronic) in patients with a single coronary artery. The tools and techniques used to anticipate the risk of acute coronary occlusion are discussed.

The purpose of this review/editorial is to discuss how and when to treat the most common acyanotic congenital heart defects (CHD); the discussion of cyanotic heart defects will be presented in a subsequent editorial. By and large, the indications and timing of intervention are decided by the severity of the lesion. Balloon pulmonary valvuloplasty is the treatment of choice for valvar pulmonary stenosis and the indication for intervention is peak-to-peak systolic pressure gradient >50 mmHg across the pulmonary valve...

INTRODUCTION: A coronary fistula is a connection between one of the coronary arteries and a cardiac chamber or great artery. It is a rare defect and usually occurs in isolation. Two-dimensional echocardiography has an important role in diagnosis but coronary or CT angiography is essential to delineate the anatomy. Surgery is the traditional therapeutic approach but percutaneous closure is now the recommended method, with excellent results and few complications in experienced centers. METHODS: We describe our experience with percutaneous treatment of 15 coronary fistulas in 12 patients between 1996 and 2011...

BACKGROUND: Detailed information regarding the structure and dimensions of the left atrial appendage (LAA) is required to guide implantation of LAA occlusion devices in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Currently, this procedure is guided by transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) in assessing LAA dimensions. METHODS: The LAA anatomy was analyzed in 21 consecutive patients (age 62 ± 9 years, five women, six paroxysmal AF) who underwent catheter ablation for AF...

BACKGROUND: Failure rate for left ventricular (LV) lead implantation in cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is up to 12%. The use of segmentation tools, advanced image registration software, and high-fidelity images from computerized tomography (CT) and cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) of the coronary sinus (CS) can guide LV lead implantation. We evaluated the feasibility of advanced image registration onto live fluoroscopic images to allow successful LV lead placement. METHODS: Twelve patients (11 male, 59 ± 16...

AIMS: To assess the immediate and mid-term outcome of transcatheter closure (TCC) using the first-generation Amplatzer duct occluder (ADO) in patients with ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm (SOVA). Ruptured SOVA is a rare cardiac shunt lesion, with scant data about its TCC. METHODS AND RESULTS: Twenty patients (8 females and 12 males) aged 17-52 years (median 27 years) with ruptured SOVA were selected for TCC. Most (13/20) were in symptomatic NYHA class III or IV...

Historically, carotid cavernous fistulas (CCFs) are usually treated with detachable balloons and coils. While coronary covered stent grafts have been sporadically used in the intracranial vasculature, only a few such cases have been reported in the literature. We present our experience of seven patients with eight CCFs, treated by the placement of covered stents, and provide their clinical and angiographic follow-up results. From 28 cases of CCF treated at our department between November 2000 and January 2007, a total of eight post-traumatic CCF were treated between May 2005 and January 2007 by positioning a Jostent coronary stent graft (Abbott Vascular, Redwood City, CA) in the intracranial ICA...
