Patent foramen ovale is frequently observed in the general population. In case of massive pulmonary embolism, the sudden increase in the right heart cavity's pressure may cause a right-to-left shunting across this foramen, which could be associated with conflicting outcomes. Herein, we report a case of reversible cardiac arrest preceded by seizures, and followed by hemodynamic stability without any vasopressor. A brain CT-scan showed a limited ischemic stroke. Initial echocardiographic assessment revealed an acute cor pulmonale and a right-to-left intracardiac shunt across a large patent foramen ovale, suggesting the diagnosis of massive pulmonary embolism that was lately confirmed by a multidetector CT-angiography...

Cryptogenic stroke is the final diagnosis in almost 40% of ischemic acute cerebrovascular events. There is currently no definitive clinical evidence that percutaneous closure of patent foramen ovale (PFO) can prevent the recurrence of stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). Identification of the causes of neurologic ischemic syndromes is essential for any strategy intended to prevent the catastrophic consequences of cerebral infarction. Since the initial reports of an unexpectedly high prevalence of PFO in younger patients with cryptogenic stroke in 1988, there has been growing interest and experience in diagnosing and treating these patients, both medically and/or with percutaneous closure, in particular for the potential to eliminate paradoxical embolism via PFO, which is a likely mechanism for stroke in these patients...

Infarction located in the midbrain and pons presents various ophthalmic symptoms, because of the damage of the nuclei that control the movement of internal and external ocular and palpebral muscles. We experienced a case which presented with rare ocular symptoms and course. A 61-year-old man presented with left hemiparesis and dysarthria, bilateral ptosis, and bilateral impaired eyeball movement: right eyeball movement was totally impaired and left could only perform slight adduction. MRI showed fresh stroke in the right thalamus, cerebral crus, and posterior lobe and cuneate lesion on bilateral paramedian portion of the midbrain...

BACKGROUND: Premature restriction or closure of foramen ovale (FO) in otherwise structurally normal hearts may be associated with right ventricular dilation, tricuspid regurgitation, pericardial effusion, heart failure, even poor perinatal outcomes. Data about these rare conditions are lacking. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the echocardiographic records of 9704 fetuses seen from 2010 to 2014 in Beijing Anzhen Hospital, a regional and national referral center, to ascertain the presence of restriction or closure of FO...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The clinical utility of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) after brain ischemia (BI) remains a matter of debate. We aimed to evaluate the clinical impact of TEE and to build a score that could help physicians to identify which patients should better benefit from TEE. METHODS: This prospective, multicenter, observational study included patients over 18 years old, hospitalized for BI. TEE findings were judged discriminant if the results showed important information leading to major changes in the management of patients...

BACKGROUND: Transcatheter closure of patent foramen ovale (PFO) after cryptogenic stroke has long been a contentious issue. Herein, we pool aggregate data examining safety and efficacy of transcatheter closure of PFO compared with medical therapy following initial cryptogenic stroke. METHODS: We searched for randomized clinical trials (RCT) that compared device closure with medical management and reported on subsequent stroke and adverse events. Stroke was considered as the primary efficacy endpoint, whereas bleeding and atrial fibrillation were considered primary safety endpoints...

The growth-restricted fetus in utero is exposed to a hostile environment and suffers undernutrition and hypoxia. To cope with the stress, the fetus changes its physiological functions. These adaptive changes aid intrauterine survival; however, they can lead to permanent functional and structural changes that can contribute to the development of serious chronic diseases later in life. Epigenetic mechanisms are an important part of the pathophysiological processes behind this "developmental origin of adult diseases...

INTRODUCTION: The concept of embolic stroke of undetermined source (ESUS) has recently appeared to better characterise patients with cryptogenic stroke. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A systematic review of studies published since 2014 was performed to evaluate the epidemiology, clinical features and prognosis of patients with ESUS and their proportion among patients with cryptogenic stroke. RESULTS: Ten studies were identified with a total of 14,810 patients...

Brain abscess (BA) is an encapsulated infection and can be the consequence of head and cranio-maxillo-facial surgery or trauma, or may be secondary to cavernous thrombophlebitis, but is most frequently due to hematogenous septic dissemination from an adjacent site of infection, such as the paranasal sinuses, middle ear or oral cavity. We report a rare and unfortunate case of multiple BA caused by dental procedures in a young man with undiagnosed patent foramen ovale (PFO). Simple routine dental procedures, such as tooth brushing and professional oral hygiene, can predispose to life-threatening conditions...

A patent foramen ovale (PFO) is a common variant in cardiac anatomy found in 25% to 30% of U.S. adults. While PFOs are a normal part of fetal development and commonly seen in asymptomatic adults, they have been implicated in a variety of pathophysiologic conditions. The most clinically important of these is paradoxical embolization of venous thrombus resulting in stroke or systemic embolism. Various devices can be used to close PFOs via a transcatheter approach to prevent recurrent stroke. Data regarding the safety and effectiveness of these devices is rapidly evolving, with recent long-term results suggesting efficacy in preventing secondary stroke in carefully selected patients...

Platypnoea Orthodeoxia syndrome is defined by dyspnoea and hypoxaemia exacerbated by orthostatic positioning and alleviated in recumbency. This condition has been reported in association with pulmonary, hepatic and cardiac disease. We describe a case herein of a 79 year old female who developed severe hypoxaemia and dyspnoea post laparoscopic cholecystectomy. A difference in arterial blood gas oxygen tension was demonstrated in the supine and erect positions on arterial blood gas analysis. A Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) with a right to left shunt was evident on echocardiogram employing colour doppler and agitated normal saline studies...

Paradoxical embolism through a patent foramen ovale is a very unusual event considering that this cardiac anomaly may be present in as much as 26% of the general population. We describe the case of a 68-year-old man with a pulmonary and paradoxical coronary embolism in the presence of a patent foramen ovale. The finding of a worm-shaped thrombus though the atrial septum together with the risk of further embolization through the atrial septum prompted surgical treatment.

AIMS: Foramen ovale (FO) valve with a shape or motion abnormality is frequently detected during routine obstetric ultrasonic examinations. However, the hemodynamics mechanism of this entity remains unclear. The purpose of the study is to determine the relevance of interatrial communication restriction and resultant morphological modifications. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed the echocardiographic records of fetuses with isolated abnormal FO valve evaluated between January of 2010 and december of 2016...

An 81-year-old female developed dyspnea only upon assuming a sitting position. Trans-esophageal echocardiography demonstrated left-to-right shunt flow across the atrial septum when the patient was sitting, and right-to-left shunt flow when she was supine, along with severe aortic insufficiency. She was diagnosed as having platypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome and her symptoms were completely resolved following aortic valve replacement, closure of a patent foramen ovale, and shortening of an elongated ascending aorta...

The term cryptogenic stroke refers to a stroke for which there is no specific attributable cause after a comprehensive evaluation. However, there are differences between the diagnostic criteria of etiological classifications used in clinical practice. An improvement in diagnostic tools such advances in monitoring for atrial fibrillation, advances in vascular imaging and evidence regarding the implication of patent foramen oval on the risk of stroke specially in young patients are reducing the proportion of stroke patients without etiological diagnosis...
