situs inversus dextrocardia

Anil Potdar, Ganeshrao Sapkal, Satyavan Sharma
Situs inversus dextrocardia is a challenging situation for an interventional cardiologist. This report presents a rare case where multivessel percutaneous coronary intervention was performed in a single sitting using transradial approach. The challenges encountered in the procedure and clues to successful outcome are discussed.

OBJECTIVES: In developing countries, where patients present late, the atrial switch operation is still a preferred palliation for d-transposition of great arteries (d-TGA). In this report, we present our experience in patients with d-TGA who were 5 years of age or older. METHODS: Twenty-seven patients underwent an atrial switch procedure between January 2004 and December 2014. The standard technique consisted of a combination of the Senning and Mustard's repair with Schumacker's in situ modification for construction of the pulmonary venous baffle...

Dextrocardia is a cardiac positional anomaly in which the heart is located in the right hemithorax with its base-to-apex axis directed to the right and caudad. Situs inversus is an autosomal recessive disorder that causes organs in the chest and abdomen to be positioned in a mirror image from their normal position. Dextrocardia may occur in isolation or as part of situs inversus. Similarly, situs inversus may occur with or without dextrocardia. Situs inversus accompanied with dextrocardia (situs inversus totalis) is a rare congenital abnormality occurring in 0...

Situs inversus totalis (SIT) with dextrocardia is an uncommon congenital positional anomaly, which is characterized by a symmetrical 'mirror-image' orientation of all organs in relation to the midline. Although sternotomy and thoracotomy is traditionally used in patients with SIT with dextrocardia, a totally endoscopic robotic surgery is an alternative surgical approach to intracardiac anomalies. Placement of robotic ports, transthoracic aortic clamp, cardioplegia delivery, and peripheral vascular cannulation is made from the left side of the chest, as a mirror orientation of the right-sided robotic cardiac procedures...

A 32 years old gentleman, presented in emergency department, with complaints of sudden onset of severe upper abdominal pain, associated with nausea and vomiting. He was a known case of acid peptic disease. His abdominal examination showed signs of peritonitis. X-ray chest showed pneumoperitoneum, with dextrocardia. Ultrasound showed situs inversus. Exploration confirmed the diagnosis of perforated ulcer and situs inversus. Grahm's patch repair of perforation was done. His postoperative recovery was smooth.

Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a relatively rare condition involving transposition of both the abdominal and thoracic viscera. SIT typically presents as left to right reversal of the viscera combined with dextrocardia, while the individual organs function is normal. Although there are no obvious abnormalities in the function of transposed organs, anatomical irregularity causes important technical difficulties in the surgical treatment of these patients. In this study, we aim to report surgical challenges in laparoscopic adrenalectomy in a patient with SIT...

We report the case of a patient with situs inversus totalis, annuloaortic ectasia complicated by aortic insufficiency and mitral regurgitation which induced congestive heart failure. Both valvular lesions were repaired physiologically using aortic root sparing Yacoub 'remodeling' technique and mitral ring annuloplasty. Valve sparing techniques can be used effectively even in patients with complicated clinical scenarios (like dextrocardia and annuloaortic ectasia) to avoid the potential risks related to prosthetic valve implantation and lifelong anticoagulation therapy...

Plastic bronchitis is a rare life-threatening complication of the Fontan operation. Transcatheter Fontan fenestration can ameliorate symptoms by decompressing elevated venous pressures. Transcatheter creation of a fenestration can be technically challenging in cases with complex venous anatomy. We report a case of a 5-year-old boy with heterotaxy, dextrocardia with unbalanced atrioventricular canal (AVC), atrial and visceral situs inversus, left-sided superior vena cava (SVC), and left-sided interrupted inferior vena cava (IVC) with azygos continuation...

Case 1: A 53-year-old woman had a positive fecal occult blood test during an examination performed in June 2014, and she visited our department in August. Colonoscopic examination showed a type 2 rectal cancer 4 cm from the anal verge. CT showed situs inversus totalis. We performed laparoscopic abdominoperineal resection (D2) for a diagnosis of cT1b, N0, M0, Stage Ⅰrectal cancer. Case 2: A 60-year-old man had a positive fecal occult blood test. Colonoscopic examination showed a type 2 cancer of the ascending colon...

The patient was a 33-year-old man attending the infertility clinic with primary infertility of 3 years duration. The semen examination showed oligozoospermia and suspected primary male infertility. He had a history of chronic sinusitis and respiratory disease. His chest X-ray showed dextrocardia. Abnormality of the ultrastructure of the cilia of the tract epithelium was found by electron microscopy, and further examination revealed bronchoectasis. We gave him a diagnosis of Kartagener syndrome from these findings...

We report a patient with situs inversus who developed a large posterior interventricular septum pseudoaneurysm with a septal defect following a myocardial infarction. The ventricular septum was approached through the left ventricle and the entrance of the pseudoaneurysm was repaired with a strip of equine pericardium.

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Dextrocardia is rare in the general population, and may be associated with significant additional cardiac malformations. We aimed to identify the prevalence and patterns of additional cardiac defects, as well as the associated long-term morbidity and mortality, in adult patients with dextrocardia, in a specialised Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) service. METHODS: A retrospective study of patients with dextrocardia managed by our tertiary ACHD service, since January 2000, was performed...

The Senning and Mustard baffles remain important techniques for the treatment of congenitally corrected transposition (cc-TGA), isolated ventricular inversion, and D-transposition of the great arteries with delayed presentation. We describe the treatment of an 8-month old infant with atrioventricular discordance, ventriculoarterial concordance, and dextrocardia with atrial situs inversus. A modified Senning procedure was performed through the "left-sided" atrium. Modifications of the Senning and Mustard baffles remain important tools in the treatment of rare conditions like isolated ventricular inversion...

Aglossia is a rare congenital disorder with complete absence of tongue that can also be associated with limb deformities, syndromes and aberrant positioning of the visceral organs. The present case report describes multidisciplinary rehabilitation in a patient with Aglossia Congenita along with dextrocardia, situs inversus, mutilated dentition with a lack of occlusal table and compromised esthetics.

Neurally mediated reflex syncope is the most common cause of syncope in young individuals without cardiac or neurological pathology. We report a case of successful catheter ablation in a 17-year-old male with neurally mediated syncope (NMS) of the cardioinhibitory type. The patient had dextrocardia situs inversus totalis with a mirror-image reversal of the thoracic and abdominal organs. Because he experienced multiple syncope episodes despite pharmacological intervention, we performed endocardial ablation of the superior vena cava-aorta ganglionated plexus...

PEComas are a group of very rare mesenchymal neoplasms, which express myogenic and melanocytic markers, such as HMB-45 and actin. Situs inversus totalis represents a complete left to right side transposition of the asymmetrical thoracic and abdominal organs and incorporates dextrocardia. The presence of uterus PEComa in the setting of situs inversus totalis is extremely rare. Here, we report a case of PEComa of uterus with coexistence of situs inversus totalis and review the literatures. To the best of our knowledge this is the fist report of a uterus PEComa patient with situs inversus totalis...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Situs inversus is a rare congenital abnormality involving partial or complete transposition of the thoracic or abdominal viscera. In situs inversus totalis, both the thoracic and abdominal viscera are transposed. The incidence of this condition is 0.01% to 0.02%. Bronchopulmonary sequestration (BPS) is a rare congenital abnormality of the respiratory tract with an incidence of 0.15% to 1.80%. Intralobar sequestration is uncommonly associated with congenital anomalies...
