AIMS: Non-fluoroscopic catheter ablation is becoming routine. In experienced centres, fluoroscopy is rarely required. The use of a traditional catheterization lab (cath lab) may no longer be necessary. We began performing catheter ablations at a paediatric centre outside the traditional cardiac cath lab in 2013. The purpose of this study was to compare procedural features of paediatric catheter ablation performed outside the cath lab to those performed within a cath lab. METHODS AND RESULTS: We prospectively looked at patients presenting to the paediatric centre with supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) undergoing catheter ablation outside the cath lab in a standard operating room (OR group)...

BACKGROUND: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the echocardiographic follow-up of patent foramen ovale, which is considered a potential etiological factor in various diseases, and to determine the factors affecting spontaneous closure. METHODS: Between January 2000 and June 2012, records of 918 patients with patent foramen ovale were retrospectively reviewed. Patency of less than 3 mm around the fossa ovalis is called patent foramen ovale. Patients with cyanotic congenital heart diseases, severe heart valve disorders and severe hemodynamic left to right shunts were excluded from the study...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: A patent foramen ovale (PFO) is disproportionately prevalent in patients with cryptogenic stroke. Without alternative explanations, it is frequently considered to be causative. A detailed stratification of these patients may improve the identification of incidental PFO. METHODS: We investigated the PFO prevalence in 3497 transient ischemic attack and ischemic stroke patients aged 18 to 55 years in the prospective multicenter SIFAP1 study (Stroke in Young Fabry Patients 1) using the ASCO classification...

Diseases associated with chronic hypoxaemia are a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in Western countries. Epidemiological data indicate that cardiovascular diseases contribute substantially to this problem, but the underlying mechanisms are incompletely understood. Sleep disordered breathing and high altitude exposure are frequent conditions associated with hypoxaemia. Recent evidence suggests that in these conditions the concomitant presence of a patent foramen ovale plays an important pathogenic role...

We report an extremely rare case of an extensive biatrial thrombus straddling a patent foramen ovale (PFO) extending into the bilateral ventricles in a patient presenting with an acute embolic stroke. Our patient further developed a massive saddle pulmonary embolus (PE) with haemodynamic instability during the course of his hospitalisation. The risks of pharmacological thrombolysis or surgical thrombectomy for PE in a haemodynamically unstable patient with recent embolic stroke posed a significant therapeutic dilemma...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Incidence of electrical disturbances in patients submitted to transcatheter patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure has not been fully clarified in a large population. The aim of the study is to assess the incidence of atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachi-arrhythmias, and atrio-ventricular block in the acute and very long-term follow-up. METHODS/MATERIALS: We reviewed the medical and instrumental data of 1000 consecutive patients (mean age 47...

BACKGROUND: Patients with a patent foramen ovale (PFO) who suffered from stroke, TIA or peripheral paradoxical embolism are at substantial risk for recurrent neurologic events and in need for secondary prevention. Interventional closure of PFO has been performed for over 20 years. Numerous devices have been developed and used for treatment. We investigated PFO closure with the third generation Occlutech Figulla(®) Flex II Occluder device. METHODS: Between 2012 and 2015 57 patients (mean age 47...

We present our experience with the Cera (CO) and the CeraFlex occluder (CFO) in transcatheter closure of interatrial communications (IAC). Between 2013 and 2016, 201 patients (75 males, 16 with patent foramen ovale), aged 27 ± 19 (5-75) years, underwent percutaneous closure of IAC using CO or CFO in our institution. After transoesophageal imaging, the procedure was aborted in 7 young paediatric (6-13 years old) patients (3 multiple holes, 3 too small septum, 1 leak with 38 mm occlusion balloon). The occluder was removed prior to release in 11 patients (5...

BACKGROUND: The coexistence of patent foramen ovale (PFO) and sleep apnea syndrome (SAS) might be related to the pathogenesis of cryptogenic stroke (CS). We aimed to determine the prevalence of SAS in patients with cryptogenic stroke and PFO. METHODS: This is a prospective case-control study in which we included ischemic stroke patients consecutively admitted to our hospital's Acute Stroke Unit. Contrast transcranial Doppler (c-TCD) and sleep polygraphy within the first 72 h after stroke onset were performed to detect PFO and SAS...

Stroke is a leading cause of disability and mortality worldwide. Ultrasound is a real-time imaging technique that is inexpensive, portable, non-invasive, and safe, with high diagnostic accuracy. Ultrasonic imaging can provide useful direct and indirect information about the characteristics of various vessels in the both intracranial and extracranial segments. Areas covered: In this review, we will discuss multimodal applications of ultrasonic imaging in stroke prevention and management including checking carotid intima-media thickness progression, evaluating the plaque morphology, calibrating the degree of stenosis, detecting the presence of patent foramen ovale, monitoring microembolization, and screening for stroke risk in patients with sickle cell disease...

A 75-year-old man with chronic (30-year) unexplained paroxysmal hypoxemia presented with postural hypoxemia and desaturation consistent with a clinical manifestation of platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome. His history included a lack of significant past pulmonary disease, yet with intermittent need for oxygen supplementation. On admission he was found to have an interatrial shunt through a patent foramen ovale. Device closure by percutaneous catheterization led to sustained resolution of symptoms. Platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome is a rare but important consideration in the differential diagnosis of hypoxemia, as it represents a potentially curable cause of hypoxemia, with missed diagnosis leading to possible patient morbidity if untreated...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Left atrial dysfunction has been reported in patients with patent foramen ovale (PFO). Here we investigated the role of left atrial dysfunction in the development of embolic stroke in patients with PFO. METHODS: We identified consecutive patients with embolic stroke of undetermined sources except for PFO (PFO+ESUS). Healthy subjects with PFO served as controls (PFO+control). A stratified analysis by 10-year age group and an age- and sex- matching analysis were performed to compare echocardiographic markers between groups...

An 80-year-old female presented with progressive breathlessness, worse on sitting or standing and relieved by lying flat. Subsequent investigations identified a patent foramen ovale (PFO) with right-to-left flow across the interatrial septum (IAS). A diagnosis of platypnoea orthodeoxia syndrome secondary to inter-atrial shunting was made. Technical features precluded a percutaneous PFO closure so an open surgical repair was performed with complete resolution of symptoms. We discuss the pathophysiology and management of platypnoea orthodeoxia syndrome...

A female Southern black rhinoceros ( Diceros bicornis minor) calf died unexpectedly at less than 12 hr of age, after an uncomplicated birth and uneventful early postpartum period. Gross necropsy revealed a 15-cm full thickness cleft palate, a patent foramen ovale, and four septal defects ranging from 0.3 to 1 cm in diameter. Histologic findings did not reveal any significant abnormalities. Karyotyping did not indicate any significant numerical or structural chromosomal abnormalities.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of congenital heart defects (CHDs) in patients with mild or severe congenital anorectal malformations (CARMs), and whether all patients with CARM need pediatric cardiology screening. STUDY DESIGN: We included 129 patients with CARM born between 2004 and 2013, and referred to University Medical Center Groningen. Recto-perineal and recto-vestibular fistulas were classified as mild CARMs, all others as severe. Significant patent foramen ovale, secundum atrial septal defect, and small ventricular septum defect were classified as minor CHDs, all others as major...
