Heart murmer

Liesbeth C de Vette, Jasper J Brugts, Jacky S McGhie, Jolien W Roos-Hesselink
M Ebstein is usually diagnosed in early childhood or adolescence. The young woman in our case complainted of fatigue and shortness of breath, on physical examination she showed signs of heart failure with raised central venous pressure, palpable liver, an a cardiac murmer. Based on these findings she should have been referred to a cardiologist in an early stage after which transthoracic echocardiography resulted in the correct diagnosis. In this case the anomaly was missed for many years by different specialists and the patient was treated for liver disease, while she was suffering from liver congestion due to right-sided heart failure...

A 18-year-old Dutch Warmblood mare was referred for colic. Upon arrival, lethargy, blindness, head pressing, ataxia, and circling were the main clinical signs. On rectal examination a hard mass and oedema around the cranial mesenteric artery were palpated. Plasma liver enzyme activities and the ammonia level were elevated. Atrial fibrillation with a pulse frequency of 36-52 beats per minute was noticed. On both sides a holosystolic murmer with the maximum intensity on the right side could be auscultated. Postmortem examination revealed eccentric hypertrophy of the right atrium and a pale spotted myocardium, most prominently of the right ventricle, with secondary venous congestion of the azygos and mesenteric veins...

The authors report the case of a 2 month old child in whom a coronary artery fistulae was diagnosed by colour Doppler echocardiography. Routine two-dimensional echocardiography showed a very dilated right coronary artery. Turbulent flow was detected in this vessel by pulsed Doppler echocardiography. Colour Doppler showed the fistulous connection to the inferior wall of the right ventricle. Until recently, this condition could only be diagnosed by selective angiography and coronary arteriography. Although there have been few reports in the literature, colour Doppler echocardiography would seem to be a significant advance in non-invasive diagnosis of abnormal connections of the coronary arteries...

Heart failure in a 2-day-old infant was not readily explained by clinical examination. Cardiac catheterization suggested an intracranial arteriovenous (AV) fistula, and cerebral arteriography showed a malformation of the vein of Galen. The major feeding arteries were surgically obliterated. At age 27 months, the boy has normal mentation but moderate left hemiparesis. Review of the literature disclosed 39 other infants with AV malformations of the vein of Galen producing heart failure before age 3 months. Most of them were boys, and had cyanosis, a systolic murmer, cranial bruit, cardiomegaly, and right bentricular hypertrophy...

Right ventriculography was used to assess the tricuspid valve in 61 patients with systolic murmur-click syndrome. Systolic murmurs were present in 47 cases, and 32 had clicks. Mitral valve prolapse was present in 52 patients. Late systolic prolapse of the tricuspid valve was demonstrated in 32 patients (52.4%). In 9 cases, prolapse involved the tricuspid valve alone. In the systolic murmur-click syndrome, prolapse may involve either or both of the atrioventricular valves.
