Subclavian artery aneurysm is usually operated under general anesthesia (GA), but in specific situations, it can also be conducted under regional anesthesia (RA) such as cervical epidural anesthesia (CEA). A 48-year-old male presented with chief complaint of progressive swelling in the right side of the neck for the past 3 months following trauma. He was diagnosed as subclavian artery aneurysm, and surgical intervention was advised. He had previous history of angina 4 months back for which tablet aspirin 75 mg and tablet clopidogrel 75 mg once daily was prescribed...

A 64-year-old woman was followed by the other hospital because of left ventricular false aneurysm after percutaneous coronary intervention for acute myocardial infarction of which culprit lesion was left circumflex artery. She admitted to the hospital suffering from nausea and dyspnea. Echocardiography showed huge pericardial effusion and cardiac tamponade due to ruptured left ventricular false aneurysm and transferred to our hospital under pericardial drainage. She presented with symptoms such as shock, so we performed emergent left ventricular reconstruction...

A 69-year-old woman was referred to our hospital due to dyspnea on exertion and a heart murmur. A chest X-ray showed a bulge at the left 3rd arch and chest computed tomography( CT) revealed a giant mass adjacent to the right ventricular outflow. Multidetector-row CT and coronary angiography showed a giant coronary aneurysm (55×45 mm) and fistulae arising from the left main coronary trunk and entering into the main pulmonary artery (PA). The pulmonary to systemic flow ratio was 1.84. She was diagnosed with coronary-pulmonary artery fistulae with giant coronary aneurysm...

Rupture of the free wall of the left ventricle with the formation of a false aneurysm (pseudoaneurysm, PA) - is a rare complication of acute myocardial infarction. Given the high risk of rupture of the PA and other life-threatening consequences (progressive heart failure, thromboembolic events), as well as the absence of pathognomonic signs and the difficulty in determining treatment strategy (feasibility and timing of surgery), early diagnosis of this complication appears to be especially important. We present here an overview of literature data on prevalence, specific features of diagnostics, and problems related to selection of method of treatment of PA...

BACKGROUND: Mycotic aneurysms are a complication of infective endocarditis. Infection of left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) may lead to bacteremia and fever causing complications similar to those seen in patients with prosthetic valve endocarditis. Intracranial mycotic aneurysms are rare, and their presence is signaled by the development of subarachnoid hemorrhage in the setting of bacteremia and aneurysms located distal to the circle of Willis. CASE PRESENTATION: We present the case of a patient with a LVAD presenting with headache who is found to have an intracranial mycotic aneurysm through computed tomography angiography of the head...

REVIEW
Bishnu P Dhakal, Guilherme H Oliveira
PURPOSE OF THE REVIEW: Percutaneous ventricular restoration with a ventricular partitioning device (VPD) is a novel minimally invasive procedure designed to restore the left ventricular (LV) shape by isolating the infarcted and aneurysmal LV apex from remainder of the cavity in heart failure patients with severely reduced LV ejection fraction. In this review, we perform an in-depth analysis of the design and purpose of the VPD and review the available clinical data, with special attention to hemodynamics, outcomes, and complications...

Ventricular outpouchings include acquired abnormalities (aneurysms and pseudoaneurysms) and congenital ventricular diverticula (CVD). CVD represent rare cardiac pathologies. Although CVD is often associated with other cardiac and extracardiac congenital anomalies, it can also be incidentally observed in otherwise healthy subjects. CVD may lead to significant morbidity and even have lethal consequences. We describe a case of arrhythmogenic left ventricle (LV) apical CVD revealed by cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) after being initially overlooked by echocardiography...

Transthoracic echocardiography ( TTE transthoracic echocardiography ) is a critical tool in the field of clinical cardiology. It often serves as one of the first-line imaging modalities in the evaluation of cardiac disease owing to its low cost, portability, widespread availability, lack of ionizing radiation, and ability to evaluate both anatomy and function of the heart. Consequently, a large majority of patients undergoing a cardiac computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance (MR) imaging examination will have a TTE transthoracic echocardiography available for review...

BACKGROUND: The risk of non-Hodgkin lymphoma is increased 200-fold in individuals seropositive for human immunodeficiency virus compared to those free from human immunodeficiency virus. Human immunodeficiency virus-associated non-Hodgkin lymphoma is known for its atypical presentation, aggressive ability, widespread involvement, poor response to chemotherapy, and high relapse potential which makes both the diagnosis and management a difficult undertaking especially in resource-poor settings...

A 28-week-old fetus was detected to have a single left atrial mass in prenatal ultrasound. Postnatal echocardiography showed an aneurysm between the anterior mitral leaflet and aortic valve, to the left of atrioventricular junction and communicating with the left ventricle through a narrow mouth. It probably originated from the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrous tissue and an inherent weakness at this site might be the cause. Reported cases of pseudoaneurysm of mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa and subvalvular ventricular aneurysms seen following infective endocarditis, surgery, or trauma seem to have a similar anatomical background...

A patient with pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries without an intrapericardial pulmonary artery (PA) underwent a one-stage total correction, including both branch PA reconstructions, with a bovine pericardial roll at the age of 42 months. She was readmitted 54 months after the operation because of extracardiac conduit bacterial endocarditis and pulmonary infarction. The bovine pericardial roll between the right and left PAs was enucleated, and the surrounding fibrotic tissue (peel) was used as a new branch PA vascular conduit...

Muscular septal aneurysms are extremely rare without a ventricular septal defect and are diagnosed accidentally in most cases. Reported cases generally have rhythm disturbance or electrocardiographic findings of Wolf-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome. Presently described are 2 cases of ventricular septal aneurysm associated with WPW syndrome, which presented as dilated cardiomyopathy. Pre-excitation disappeared gradually in first patient. There was also concurrent decrease in degree of bulging of the interventricular septum and improvement of left ventricular systolic function...
