Koh Keng Tat, Asri Said, Oon Yen Yee, Siti Nadia Binti Che Adinan, Ong Tiong Kiam
ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in situs inversus dextrocardia is a rare combination and poses many challenges in terms of diagnosis and management. These include the early detection of dextrocardia as well as the interpretation of the ECG. In addition, percutaneous coronary intervention could be challenging in the setting of dextrocardia because of diffi culty in cannulating the coronary arteries, selection of catheters, catheter manipulation, image acquisition and interpretation.

BACKGROUND: Dextrocardia is a congenital anomaly, which may have coexistent coronary artery disease (CAD), arrhythmias and conventional indications for device therapy. However, the implantation of transvenous leads can be technically challenging and the approach needs to be tailored to the patient's individual anatomy. CASE PRESENTATION: A 54-year-old male with dextrocardia situs inversus and ischemic left ventricular dysfunction developed ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation...

A 79-year-old man with situs inversus and dextrocardia underwent catheter ablation of symptomatic paroxysmal atrial fibrillation. Pulmonary vein isolation (PVI), using second-generation cryoballoon under Ensite NavX system guidance, was performed successfully in a reverse manner, which required short procedure and fluoroscopy times, as required in a PVI performed on a normal heart without any complications. Cryoballoon-based PVI under Ensite NavX guidance was feasible and safe to achieve a favorable outcome in this patient with abnormal anatomy...

Transposition of the great arteries occurs rarely in patients with mirror image dextrocardia and situs inversus, while the combination with severe coarctation of the descending aorta (CoA) makes the anatomy even more unusual. Therefore, it is not surprising that a case with such unusual and complicated anatomy presents unique problems when a primary definitive correction is attempted. We report a patient with situs inversus totalis and complex congenital heart disease including transposition of the great arteries and severe CoA who underwent successful complete, single-stage, anatomic correction...

BACKGROUND: The right ventricle has a proclivity to wrap around the left ventricle outflow tract (LVOT) in congenitally corrected transposition (CCT) patients with apicocaval ipsilaterality, which may influence the outcome of the double switch operation (DSO). The goal of this study was to determine if the LVOT is compressed by the right ventricle in this setting. METHODS: A total of 103 patients with CCT were divided into four groups according to ventricular looping and apical position, including Group A (D-loop and levocardia), Group B (L-loop and dextrocardia), Group C (D-loop and dextrocardia), and Group D (L-loop and levocardia)...

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...

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...
