The diagnosis of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) with Eisenmenger syndrome is difficult. We report a case of 35-year-old male who came to our outpatient department (OPD) for evaluation of repeated hemoptysis and dyspnea on exertion. He had already completed two courses of ATT. On examination, grade 3 ejection systolic murmur was audible over precordium. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) showed enlargement of right atrium (RA) and right ventricular (RV) with severe tricuspid regurgitation (TR). On agitated saline contrast injection, agitated saline was seen in pulmonary artery followed by filling of abdominal aorta without filling of ascending aorta, thus confirming the diagnosis of right to left shunt with PDA...

Pregnancy is typically contraindicated in Eisenmenger syndrome because of its association with excessively high maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. We report on our novel approach to successfully managing a 29 year-old pregnant woman with an unrepaired patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) with Eisenmenger syndrome through delivery and recovery. Venovenous ECMO was utilized during induction of labor to stabilize maternal hemodynamics and optimize fetal oxygenation by creating an oxygenated right-to-left shunt through the PDA...

BACKGROUND: Effect of pulmonary hypertension (PH) on right ventricular (RV) geometry constitutes an ideal target to assess both pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) and its physiological importance. In this study, we evaluated the diagnostic power of the basal segment of septomarginal trabeculation (SMT) in predicting the PH and RV hypertrophy by cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) in patients with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension (IPAH) and Eisenmenger's syndrome (ES). METHODS: Eleven patients with IPAH, seven patients with ES, and 20 healthy controls were enrolled...

Management of patients with Eisenmenger syndrome with pulmonary atresia is challenging because of the complexity of the structure-function relationship of the components of the syndrome. Multi-modality imaging including cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) 4D Flow offers unprecedented opportunities to unravel, at least in part, some of these components, and thus help in the management of these patients. In this study, we describe the use of these integrated methods with particular reference to CMR 4D Flow in a patient with Eisenmenger syndrome and pulmonary atresia and outline both the utility and the limitations...

OBJECTIVE: Eisenmenger syndrome (ES) is a life-threatening disease characterized by pulmonary hypertension and cyanosis in patients with congenital heart diseases. The aim of this study was to determine the brain metabolite changes in Eisenmenger syndrome compared with a control group using MR proton spectroscopy. METHODS AND MATERIALS: The study included 10 children (3 male, 7 female) with congenital heart diseases and a diagnosis of Eisenmenger syndrome. The control group consisted of 10 healthy volunteer children...

AIMS: Survival in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and Eisenmenger syndrome (ES) relates to right ventricular (RV) function. Little is known about differences of ventricular function between ES patients and those suffering from other PAH aetiologies. In this study, we compared global ventricular function assessed by speckle-tracking in adult patients with ES, other PAH aetiologies, or healthy controls; and assessed the relationship between ventricular function and survival. METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed a prospective cohort study recruiting 83 adult PAH patients (43 ES and 40 other PAH aetiologies patients) and 37 controls between March 2011 and June 2015...

BACKGROUND: -Eisenmenger syndrome (ES) is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality. There is no consensus, however, on mortality risk stratification. We aimed to investigate survival and predictors of death in a large, contemporary cohort of ES patients. METHODS: -We identified in a multicentre approach adults with ES under follow-up between 2000 and 2015. We examined survival and its association with clinical, electrocardiographic, echocardiographic and laboratory parameters...

Sinus venosus atrial septal defect is a rare congenital, interatrial communication defect at the junction of the right atrium and the vena cava. It accounts for 5-10% of cases of all atrial septal defects. Due to the rare prevalence and anatomical complexity, diagnosing sinus venous atrial septal defects poses clinical challenges which may delay diagnosis and treatment. Advanced cardiac imaging studies are useful tools to diagnose this clinical entity and to delineate the anatomy and any associated communications...

The quality of chemical imaging, especially multisensor hyperspectral imaging, strongly depends on sample preparation techniques and instrumental infrastructure but also on the choice of an appropriate imaging substrate. To optimize the combined imaging of Raman microspectroscopy, scanning-electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, a novel substrate was developed based on sputtering of highly purified aluminium onto classical microscope slides. The novel aluminium substrate overcomes several disadvantages of classical substrates like impurities of the substrate material and contamination of the surface as well as surface roughness and homogeneity...

BACKGROUND: The long-term effectiveness of pulmonary arterial hypertension-specific drug therapy (PAH-SDT) in Eisenmenger syndrome is controversial. We investigated short-term and long-term hemodynamic changes under PAH-SDT and their associations with outcomes in a bicentric cohort. METHODS: Over 20 years, we included 69 patients with congenital heart disease, an indexed pulmonary vascular resistance (PVRi) >8 WU·m(2), and 292 standardized catheterizations at baseline and after PAH-SDT initiation or intensification...

BACKGROUND: Eisenmenger's syndrome (ES) consists of pulmonary hypertension with a reversed or bidirectional shunt at the atrioventricular, or aortopulmonary level. The cardiovascular changes that occur during the pregnancy contribute to the high maternal morbidity and mortality in patients with ES. This study is to assess maternal and fetal outcomes in patients with ES. METHODS: This study is a retrospective analysis of 11 pregnancies in women with ES who delivered at a tertiary care center in west China between 2010 and 2014...

Eisenmenger syndrome is very rare in pregnant women. Debates remain concerning the management of Eisenmenger syndrome in this patient population and the prognosis is unclear in terms of maternal and fetoneonatal outcomes. Epidural analgesia is preferred for Cesarean section as it alleviates perioperative pain and reduces the pulmonary and systemic vascular resistances. Maternal mortality in the presence of Eisenmenger syndrome is reported as 30-50% and even up to 65% in those with Cesarean section. The major causes of death could be hypovolemia, thromboembolism and preeclampsia...

Gender influences the clinical presentation and the management of some acquired cardiovascular diseases, such as coronary artery disease, resulting in different outcomes. Differences between women and men are also noticed in congenital heart disease. They are mainly related to the prevalence and severity of some congenital heart defects at birth, and in adulthood to the prognosis, incidence of Eisenmenger syndrome and risks of pregnancy. The role of gender on the risk of operative mortality of congenital heart surgery remains debated...

OBJECTIVE: This preliminary study aimed to evaluate whether there are changes in the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values of the brain in patients presenting with Eisenmenger syndrome (ES). METHODS: This cross-sectional study included 10 consecutively recruited patients with ES and 10 healthy control subjects. In the patients and controls, eight distinct neuroanatomical locations were selected for analysis. Quantitative measurements of ADC values of the frontal white matter (FWM), occipital white matter, lentiform nucleus (LN), thalamus, frontal cortex, anterior and posterior limbs of the internal capsule and caudate nucleus were measured...

OBJECTIVE: Inhaled ilroprost can improve clinical status and symptoms in Eisenmenger syndrome (ES). Right ventricular (RV) function is important prognostic factor of pulmonary arterial hypertension. But there has been insufficient data in echocardiographic parameters related to RV function after long term iloprost therapy. So we evaluated effect of long term iloprost treatment on RV function and other parameters measured by echocardiography in this study. DESIGN AND METHOD: Eleven consecutive patients with ES associated with congenital heart disease underwent echocardiographic measurements at baseline and 48 weeks after iloprost therapy...
