BACKGROUND Poorly controlled ventricular rate associated with atrial fibrillation (AF) leads to tachycardia-induced left ventricular dysfunction. Atrioventricular (AV) nodal ablation and cardiac pacing is the standard of care in refractory congestive heart failure (CHF) due to AF with moderate to rapid ventricular response that failed conventional medical therapy. If the patient is not a candidate for AF ablation with pulmonary vein isolation and elimination of AF foci, this is an effective approach, but it does have some challenges when done in a patient with dextrocardia and situs inversus...

RATIONALE: Situs inversus totalis (SIT) is a rare anatomical variation of the internal organs, and solid pseudopapillary tumor of the pancreas (SPTP) is a rare tissue type of pancreatic tumors, classified as benign or low-grade malignancy. However, to our knowledge, a patient with SIT and SPTP is extremely rare and has never been reported. PATIENT CONCERNS: We retrospectively analyzed a case of SIT with SPTP in a 45-year-old woman. The main complaints were abdominal pain and sensation of heaviness for 2 weeks...

A 72-year-old woman was examined by F-FDG PET/CT, showing pathologic tracer uptake in the gallbladder. PET/CT also depicted condition of situs inversus totalis, with dextrocardia, liver on the left side and spleen on the right side of the body. These findings were essential to plan and develop laparoscopic cholecystectomy, which diagnosed cholangiocarcinoma. The recognition of anatomical variants and abnormalities by means of hybrid PET/CT imaging is essential in order to plan the best therapeutic approach.

BACKGROUND: Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) originating from aortic sinus cusps is not infrequent and can be eliminated effectively by radiofrequency ablation with rare complications. However, after a review of the medical literature, and to our knowledge, this is the first case of successful idiopathic aortic sinus cusps-PVC-ablation using a 3-dimensional (3D) mapping system in an adult with dextrocardia. METHODS: A 62-year-old male with dextrocardia and situs inversus underwent catheter ablation of frequent PVCs...

In patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) having congenital anatomical abnormalities, such as complete situs inversus and dextrocardia, pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) ablation can be performed safety using a three-dimensional electroanatomical mapping system. However, it is not clear whether a three-dimensional electroanatomical mapping system can be used to detect non-PV ectopic beats initiating AF in patients with complete situs inversus and dextrocardia. Here, we report a 21-year-old man with complete situs inversus and dextrocardia, who showed AF caused by non-PV ectopic beats...

A 56-year-old male with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation refractory to class IC and class III antiarrhythmic drugs was admitted to our hospital for radiofrequency catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation. During preoperative examination situs inversus totalis was revealed. Pulmonary vein (PV) isolation was successfully performed with atrial fibrillation termination and elimination of all PV potentials. The procedure was performed without any complications. Our report shows that PV isolation for treatment of drug-refractory atrial fibrillation can be safely performed in patients with dextrocardia and situs inversus totalis...

Situs inversus with dextrocardia and Lutembacher syndrome is a rare cardiac anomaly. It is associated with other complex cardiac anomalies and anatomical defects. A 30-year-old woman with this condition underwent mitral valve replacement and closure of a secundum atrial septal defect. We describe the surgical approach, position of the surgeon, and bicaval cannulation technique for this anatomical aberration.

Coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) in dextrocardia with situs inversus patients is reported less in literature. Due to abnormal looping and associated other congenital anomalies, anesthetic implications and surgical difficulties become challenging in these patients. Transesophageal echocardiography examination (TEE) needs multiplane angle adjustments compared to normal heart to obtain the images. Here, we describe a 53-year-old female patient having dextrocardia with situs inversus who underwent CABG and discuss the perioperative management and multiplane adjustments during TEE examination...

A 4-year-old cocker spaniel, male, of 12kg body weight was presented because of the onset of polyuria or polydipsia. From the first months of its life, the dog had exhibited constant serous to mucopurulent nasal discharge, productive cough, sneezing, reverse sneezing, otitis, and recurrent episodes of fever. The respiratory signs had been treated several times with antibiotics, without ever achieving a complete resolution. Clinical examination revealed normal rectal temperature (38.3°C), increased respiratory rate (40breaths/min), a copious mucous nasal discharge and right deviation of the heart apex beat (ictus cordis)...

Aortic valve replacement in patients with dextrocardia and situs inversus totalis is technically challenging due to anatomical considerations. Modifications of the cannulation strategy and operative tool sets are helpful. We report a 47-year-old man who had dextrocardia with situs inversus totalis with severe aortic regurgitation. Our approach was precisely planned depending on the clear anatomy outlined by preoperative contrast-enhanced computed tomography of the chest. We used a surgical approach in which the main surgeon was standing on the left side of the patient...

We report a rare case of incomplete congenital duodenal obstruction (Type 1 duodenal atresia) in association with situs inversus totalis presenting with gastric perforation in a neonate. The infantogram was suggestive of perforation with air under diaphragm along with dextrocardia. On exploration, a pin point perforation at fundus near lesser curvature along with situs inversus was noted. Primary closure of gastric perforation was done. Patient was then discharged on full breast feeds but was readmitted with intolerance to feeds and recurrent bilious vomiting...

Dextrocardia with situs inversus presents a unique anatomy with right-sided vascular system that may be associated with a number of additional cardiac and vascular malformations. A rare association is the presence of a single coronary artery ostium. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of transcatheter aortic valve replacement using Edwards SAPIEN S3 valve in Dextrocardia patient with single coronary artery take off.

Laparoscopic cholecystectomy is a broadly used technique for gallbladder treatment. However, situs inversus, a rare anomaly, is reportedly difficult to treat by conventional laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A 36-year-old woman with chronic cholecystitis and multiple gallstones was found to have dextrocardia on a chest X-ray. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated situs inversus, cholecystitis, and cholelithiasis. We successfully performed laparoscopic cholecystectomy using our modified technique, which mainly involved a left-handed operation and adjustment of the port positions...

Situs inversus totalis and anomalous origin of the left coronary artery are rare conditions. An 87-year-old woman with both conditions presented to the authors' hospital with symptomatic aortic stenosis. She underwent aortic valve replacement (AVR) and coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG; saphenous vein graft to the left main trunk). The operator mainly stood on the left side of the patient and performed surgery without difficulty. Both, AVR and CABG were successfully performed despite these two rare conditions...

Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is the most frequently diagnosed congenital cyanotic heart disease. It is often associated with additional findings, such as atrial septal defect (i.e., pentalogy of Fallot) or right sided aortic arch. Association of this pentalogy of Fallot with situs inversus totalis is rarely reported in paediatric literature and it can cause technical challenges to intracardiac repair. We report the case of pentalogy of Fallot with dextrocardia and situs inversus presenting as parieto-occipital abscess in a 12-year-old child...
