Left Ventricular Diverticulum

Mamatha Gowda, Shree Bharathi, Monica Thiagarajan, Tripti Aneja
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.

A 5-day-old neonate with coarctation of the aorta, hypoplastic aortic arch, large apical muscular ventricular septal defect, and patent ductus arteriosus developed pulmonary over-circulation and systemic hypoperfusion underwent bilateral pulmonary artery banding through median sternotomy as a part of hybrid stage I palliation. At operation, left atrial diverticulum with gigantic thrombus formation at the base of the left atrial appendage was incidentally detected by intraoperative direct echocardiography, and therefore, was successfully resected with the whole thrombus inside it without use of cardiopulmonary bypass...

Pentalogy of Cantrell is a rare syndrome that is characterized by varying degrees of midline wall defects and congenital cardiac anomalies. A left ventricular diverticulum (LVD) is defined as partial ectopia cordis, can be part of the pentalogy of Cantrell, and can put the patient at risk of severe complications. Early diagnosis and ligation/resection of the LVD is important to prevent complications. We report on a case of pentalogy of Cantrell, in which a LVD was diagnosed only at 2 months of age despite preceding pre- and postnatal echocardiography...

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...

A 38-year-old man presented with exertional angina of 1-year duration. Treadmill was strongly positive. Coronary angiogram revealed a significant phasic systolic compression of the left main and the proximal left circumflex artery. Echo and MRI revealed a subaortic left ventricle diverticulum causing compression of the coronary vessels. Before the planned surgery, the patient had sudden deterioration with cardiogenic shock and could not be saved.

Congenital left ventricular diverticulum is a rare cardiac anomaly. During the newborn period, symptomatic patients are diagnosed with heart failure findings. We present a 23-day-old male newborn with congenital left ventricular diverticulum diagnosed during fetal echocardiographic examination. After the birth, the patient had heart failure symptoms and his echocardiographic examination showed low cardiac ejection fraction. Diverticulum was operated with endoventricular circular patch plasty (DOR) technique, and after, cardiopulmonary bypass venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support was performed because of low cardiac output syndrome...

Congenital ventricular diverticulum is a rare cardiac anomaly defined as a localized protrusion of the ventricular free wall. Although, it is usually asymptomatic, complications such as embolism, infective endocarditis, and arrhythmias can occur. The diagnosis can be made by echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, or catheter angiography. Surgical resection is the treatment of choice in symptomatic patients, whereas the management of asymptomatic patients often represents a therapeutic dilemma...

BACKGROUND: Isolated left ventricular apical hypoplasia with several different unrecognized dimensions is a newly discovered congenital anomaly of the heart. CASE REPORT: In this report, we describe a case of cardiomyopathy of this type occurring in a 13-year-old male with a history of mental retardation and sudden cardiac death (SCD) of second-degree relatives. The patient was referred for an evaluation of cardiac status. An echocardiography analysis demonstrated a spherical left ventricle (LV) appearance with mild mitral regurgitation...

Congenital left ventricular diverticulum is an extremely rare heart defect. Here, we report a case of successful endoventriculoplasty using a Dacron patch in an infant who was followed up for one year.

A 64-year-old woman was referred to our hospital with palpitation and exertional dyspnea. An electrocardiogram showed sinus rhythm, but supraventricular tachycardia was recorded on Holter monitoring. Multidetector computed tomography revealed a small left ventricular outpouching in the apex, with a narrow connection to the ventricle and normal coronary arteries. Surgery for the left ventricular pouch was performed successfully. Histological examination demonstrated that the left ventricular diverticulum consisted of three layers of the ventricular wall, with the myocardial layer mostly replaced by fibrous tissue...

The clinic symptoms of cardiac occupying lesions are complex and difficult to diagnose currently. In this study, three cases of atrial angiosarcoma, left ventricular aneurysm and left ventricular diverticulum were selected, respectively. The clinical characteristics, imaging features (echocardiogram, cardiac CT and MRI) and the postoperative and pathological results for patients were studied. We compared the differences in clinical symptoms, morphology, histology and haemodynamics among the three patients. The diagnosis were confirmed by intraoperative and postoperative pathological examination...

The use of modern cardiac imaging techniques suggests that congenital ventricular diverticulum (CVD) may be more common than generally believed and may present asymptomatically in adult life. We present a case of congenital left ventricular diverticulum diagnosed in a patient presenting with myocardial infarction (MI). The case highlights the importance of the differential diagnosis of CVD from post infarct left ventricular aneurysms (PILVA) and suggests that adult studies using modern imaging techniques are needed to define the prognosis for asymptomatic CVD in order to guide management...

Isolated congenital left ventricular diverticulum is a rare cardiac malformation. Here, we report the case of a 33-year-old woman who had suffered from recurrent transient ischemic attacks for 6 years. Preoperative cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography angiography revealed a diverticulum near the apex. The diverticulum was successfully obliterated by cardiopulmonary bypass. We suggest that isolated congenital left ventricular diverticulum can be easily corrected with a low surgical risk by patch repair and plication techniques...
