We present the case of a 69-year-old patient who was referred to the Department of Echocardiography for surgical treatment of severe tricuspid valve regurgitation (TVR) with advanced congestive heart failure. In 2013 the patient underwent unsuccessful percutaneous ablation for permanent atrial fibrillation. In 2015, following numerous episodes of atrial fibrillation and congestive heart failure with left pleural effusion, the patient was admitted to another center. A transthoracic echocardiogram showed severe TVR and moderate precapillary pulmonary hypertension, confirmed at right cardiac catheterization...

A 24-year-old man was admitted to our outpatient clinic for his routine checkup of consecutively percutaneously treated atrial septal defect (ASD) and pulmonary valvular stenosis 45 days ago. A 24 mm ASD occluder device was implanted under transthoracic echocardiographic guidance and 80 mm Hg peak-to-peak pulmonary valvular gradient decreased to 20 mm Hg gradient after pulmonary valve dilatation with 23 mm NUMED II transluminal valvuloplasty catheter balloon. Atrial septal defect (ASD) closure is now routinely performed using a percutaneous approach under echocardiographic guidance especially transthoracic echocardiography (TEE)...

Lasso catheter (Biosense Webster) is one of the most commonly employed circular mapping catheters during pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) procedure for atrial fibrillation (AF). Although this catheter has greatly facilitated arrhythmia mapping, it can be associated with serious complications. We report a case of a 59-year-old man who underwent PVI procedure for persistent AF. During the procedure, the Lasso catheter inadvertently slipped into the left ventricular cavity and entangled in the mitral valve apparatus...

During the last 10 years, there have been major technological achievements in pediatric interventional cardiology. In addition, there have been several advances in cardiac imaging, especially in 3-dimensional imaging of echocardiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and cineangiography. Therefore, more types of congenital heart diseases can be treated in the cardiac catheter laboratory today than ever before. Furthermore, lesions previously considered resistant to interventional therapies can now be managed with high success rates...

Pulmonary valve replacement via surgical implantation of a bioprosthetic valve (BPV) is a well-established treatment for patients with dysfunctional RV outflow tracts. BPVs are prone to structural deterioration, and will eventually require replacement. Recently, percutaneous valve-in-valve (VIV) placement of transcatheter valves has established itself as a safe and effective alternative to surgical revision. Unfortunately, VIV therapy is inherently limited by the inner diameter of the BPV, which restricts the number of eligible patients...

BACKGROUND: Patients with congenital or acquired heart defects affecting the pulmonary valve and right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) commonly require multiple surgical interventions, resulting in significant morbidity. A less invasive alternative is percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation (PPVI). Though studies have previously reported the safety and efficacy of the early generation transcatheter heart valves (THVs), data on more recent devices are severely lacking. METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed a multinational, multicentre, retrospective, observational registry analysis of patients who underwent PPVI using the Edwards SAPIEN XT THV...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary hypertension is a common complication of rheumatic mitral stenosis (MS). Patients with similar mitral valve (MV) areas may have different pulmonary artery pressures. Net atrioventricular compliance (Cn) was found to play an important role in the development of pulmonary hypertension. AIM: To test the value of Cn in predicting persistent pulmonary artery hypertension (PPAH) after percutaneous mitral balloon commissurotomy (PMBC). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eighty patients with severe MS, suitable for PMBC were included in the study...

Introduction Although the right jugular vein approach for percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation is well described, there are no reports that describe a percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation through a left superior caval vein to coronary sinus pathway. Case A 14-year-old female with tetralogy of Fallot, mesocardia, left superior caval vein draining into the coronary sinus, and hemiazygos continuation of the inferior caval vein underwent ventricular septal defect closure, with homograft insertion from the right ventricle to the pulmonary artery, patch augmentation of the left pulmonary artery, and creation of an atrial communication...

Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is a very frequent manifestation of valvular heart disease. It may be due to the primary involvement of the valve or secondary to pulmonary hypertension or to the left-sided heart valve disease (most commonly rheumatic and involving the mitral valve). The pathophysiology of secondary TR is complex and is intrinsically connected to the anatomy and function of the right ventricle. A systematic multimodality approach to diagnosis and assessment (based not only on the severity of the TR but also on the assessment of annular size, RV function and degree of pulmonary hypertension) is, therefore, essential...

In this article we report the first case of Q fever endocarditis in a 13 years old child with a percutaneous pulmonary Melody(®) valve. The patient had a new onset of Melody valve dysfunction associated with the combination of hepatosplenomegaly and pancytopenia but was afebrile. Although blood cultures were negative, we have further investigated in the direction of infective endocarditis by performing PCR detection and the serology of C. burnetii which were positive. A combination antibiotic therapy with doxycycline and hydroxychloroquine was started with good clinical evolution...

Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation has been widely accepted as an alternative to surgery in selected patients with right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) dysfunction. This totally new field of our specialty pushed centres to rethink overall strategies on how to treat RVOT dysfunction. In this review, we will focus on challenges related to patient selection, and discuss innovative procedural techniques developed over the years to enlarge the number of candidates for the technique.

Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation (PPVI) is nowadays an accepted treatment option to repair post-surgical conduit dysfunction of the right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT). In addition, many patients need a pulmonary valve to reconstruct a hemodynamically incompetent native or conduit free outflow tract. Based on our experience with percutaneous stent-valve placement in a cohort of 125 patients, we report here transvenous reconstruction of a conduit-free, patch repaired outflow tract by utilizing balloon-expandable stent-valves in 23 patients with a median age of 22 years (5-60 years)...

Percutaneous perforation of pulmonary valve, using 0.014" guidewires meant for coronary artery chronic total occlusion (CTO), is increasingly being performed for select cases of pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum (PA-IVS). Despite growing experience, procedural failures and complications are not uncommon. Even in infants treated successfully, the orifice created in the atretic pulmonary valve is eccentric. In this report, we present usefulness of coronary microcatheter in alignment of perforating coronary guidewire to the center of atretic pulmonary valve resulting in central perforation...

A 59-year-old female with Tetralogy of Fallot had a previous complete repair with RVOT patch enlargement. She developed subsequent severe symptomatic (NYHA III) pulmonary regurgitation with severe RV dilatation. She had a concomitant interstitial lung disease secondary to hypersensitivity pneumonitis that precluded her from cardiac surgery. After preprocedural assessment using computed tomography, echocardiography and invasive angiography we decided to implant a 29 mm Edwards Sapien 3 valve without pre-stenting...

OBJECTIVES: To provide a comparison of the outcome of infective endocarditis (IE) in patients undergoing transcatheter pulmonary valve replacement (TPVR) versus surgical pulmonary valve replacement (SPVR). BACKGROUND: Although TPVR is thought to be associated with a higher risk of IE than SPVR, there is paucity of data to support this. METHODS: Patients who underwent TPVR or SPVR at UCLA between October 2010 and September 2016 were included and retrospectively analyzed...
