Behçet's disease (BD) is systemic vasculitis of unknown etiology, which is more common in the countries located along the Great Silk Road. The disease is diagnosed if a patient has 4 key diagnostic signs: aphthous stomatitis, genital sores, and eye and skin lesions. Vascular diseases referred to as minor criteria for BD are characterized by the formation of aneurysms and thrombosis, predominantly in the venous bed. In venous disorders, a blood clot can form in any vessel, including caval, cerebral, pulmonary, and other veins...

Congenital ventricular aneurysm is a rare cardiac malformation characterized by protrusion or out-pouching of a portion of the ventricular wall. The aneurysm usually has a broad based communication with the ventricular cavity and has to be differentiated from a diverticulum. Herein described are two such cases of left and right ventricular aneurysm each, diagnosed on prenatal ultrasound at 38 and 36 weeks of gestation respectively.

Myocardial Abscess (MA) is a rare life threatening condition mostly occurring secondary to underlying infective endocarditis. But it can also be found secondary to septicemia with some unknown focus of sepsis in the body. Development of MA as a consequence of left ventricular aneurysm (LVA) secondary to myocardial infarction is very rare. We report the case of 56 year old male, who presented with high grade fever and leukocytosis. On detailed evaluation, he was found to have a myocardial abscess with underlying LVA...

Atrial septal aneurysm (ASA), common finding in normal echocardiographies, has been described in association with transient ischemic attacks (TIAs)/strokes, as well as hypertensive end-organ damage such as left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy. Aim of this study was to assess if a cluster of echocardiographic aspects could characterize TIA hypertensive patients. A cross-sectional study on patients with history of TIA, referring to a Hypertension Center echolab, has been performed. A total of 5223 patients received transthoracic echocardiography...

BACKGROUND: Surgical ventricular restoration (SVR) has been performed to treat left ventricular (LV) aneurysm. However, there is limited analysis of changes in LV shape. This study aimed to evaluate the changes in LV shape induced by SVR and the effects of SVR on LV size and function for LV aneurysm. METHODS: Between April 2006 and March 2015, 18 patients with dyskinetic (dyskinetic group) and 12 patients with akinetic (akinetic group) postinfarction LV anterior aneurysm receiving SVR with the Dor procedure at Chinese People's Liberation Army General Hospital were enrolled in this study...

Apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is an uncommon variant of HCM characterized by apical hypertrophy without the septal predominance seen in the majority of HCM cases. In 2% of patients, a concomitant left ventricular apical aneurysm is observed, which increases the risk of sudden death and adverse HCM-related events. Multimodality imaging is helpful for appropriate identification of this particular morphologic pattern. Herein, we present a case of apical HCM with a left ventricular apical aneurysm, exemplifying the utility of a multimodality approach from resting electrocardiogram, transthoracic echocardiogram, left ventriculography, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, for proper risk stratification and treatment planning...

BACKGROUND: Standard cine-cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging is commonly used to evaluate cardiac structure, geometry and function. Prior studies have shown that automated segmentation via partial voxel interpolation (PVI) accurately quantifies phantom-based cardiac chamber volumes and necropsy left ventricular myocardial mass. Despite this, the applicability and usefulness of PVI in the determination of physiologic parameters of the aorta such as aortic stiffness has yet to be investigated...

Endocardial mapping of the left ventricle (LV) using the NOGA® XP Cardiac Navigation System can identify chronically ischemic and viable myocardium in patients with coronary artery disease by generating electromechanical maps. These maps are very useful when targeting myocardial tissue for injection of stem cells. We present the case of a woman who developed a perforation at the site of an LV aneurysm during NOGA mapping prior to the transendocardial injection of stem cells, as part of a multicenter clinical trial...

We report three cases of coronary fistula aneurysm associated with mitral valve insufficiency. The patients were referred to our cardiovascular department because of exertional dyspnea. Echocardiography showed severe mitral valve insufficiency resulting from leaflet flail or prolapse and normal left ventricular function. In all three cases, preoperative coronary angiography showed coronary-to-pulmonary artery fistula associated with significant aneurysm of the fistulous tract. All patients underwent uneventful mitral valve repair and external ligation of the fistulas...

We report a 63-year-old female with hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and prior pacemaker insertion for atrial fibrillation with symptomatic bradycardia, who was admitted with substernal chest pressure and diaphoresis. Her electrocardiogram revealed atrial fibrillation with demand ventricular pacing and her cardiac biomarkers were negative for acute coronary syndrome. Echocardiogram revealed normal left ventricular systolic function and normal aortic root diameter. Coronary angiography revealed 60-70% obtuse marginal lesion, otherwise mild disease...

Left ventricular aneurysm (LVA) is rare but potentially fatal complication of myocardial infarction. It has been strictly defined as a distinct area of abnormal left ventricular diastolic contour with systolic dyskinesia or paradoxical bulging. It may be asymptomatic. However, complications including thromboembolism, heart failure, valvular regurgitation, arrhythmia, and rarely rupture may be the initial presentation. Diagnosis may be established by transthoracic echocardiography, left ventriculography, computed tomographic angiography, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging...

Left ventricular (LV) pseudoaneurysm is a fatal and rare condition with a high risk of rupture. The symptoms are nonspecific and diagnosis is often delayed. The purpose of this study is to analysis a series of cases in our institution.Between March 2009 and April 2016, 10 patients (5 males and 5 females) with LV pseudoaneurysm were retrospectively enrolled. Clinical information, diagnostic imaging modalities, treatment, and outcomes were evaluated.The mean age was 58.2 ± 11.0 years (28-71 years). The common symptoms were chest pain (3 cases), dyspnea (3 cases), and syncope (2 cases)...

We previously reported the clinical usefulness of the mitral annular plane systolic excursion (MAPSE) to evaluate the left ventricular (LV) function in patients with Kawasaki disease (KD) in the acute-phase. However, the feasibility of the MAPSE z-score has not been evaluated in patients with acute KD. We prospectively studied 60 KD patients without coronary aneurysms. The MAPSE z-scores were calculated using our standard MAPSE data. Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) was measured as a parameter of LV function...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous ventricular restoration therapy with the use of a left ventricle (LV)-partitioning Parachute device has emerged as a clinical treatment option for LV apical aneurysm after extensive anterior myocardial infarction (AMI). We assessed changes of diastolic mechanics and functional improvements following LV Parachute device implantation by means of cardiac computerized tomography (CCT). METHODS AND RESULTS: CCT data were obtained from 28 patients before and after LV Parachute device implantation...

BACKGROUND Electrocardiographic presentations of left ventricle aneurysms are diverse; however, a persistent ST segment elevation post myocardial infarction is most commonly reported. CASE REPORT The authors present a case of a 67-year-old man who presented to the emergency department after three days of chest pain and was found to have an acute myocardial infarction with an incidental finding of a left ventricular aneurysm. His surface electrocardiogram, however, demonstrated only inverted T waves in the precordial leads...

BACKGROUND: The Florida sleeve (FS) procedure was developed as a simplified approach for repair of functional type I aortic insufficiency secondary to aortic root aneurysm. We evaluated postoperative aortic valve function, long-term survival, and freedom from reoperation in Marfan syndrome patients who underwent the FS procedure at our center. METHODS: All Marfan syndrome patients undergoing FS procedure from May 2002 to December 2014 were included. Echocardiography assessment included left ventricular end-diastolic diameter (LVEDD), left ventricular end-systolic diameter (LVESD), ejection fraction, and degree of aortic insufficiency (none = 0, minimal = 1, mild = 2, moderate = 3, severe = 4)...
