INTRODUCTION: Speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) for two-dimensional (2D) strain analysis is a new tool to assess myocardial function. The aim of this study was to assess right atrial (RA) function using STE in patients with an atrial septal defect (ASD) before and one month after percutaneous closure. METHODS: We prospectively examined 32 consecutive patients (nine male, 23 female) who underwent percutaneous transcatheter closure of a secundum ASD between June 2013 and December 2015...

OBJECTIVES: The closure of atrial septal defect (ASD) results in normalized left ventricular (LV) and right ventricular (RV) geometry, and can increase LV stroke volume (LVSV), but the parameters associated with this increase after the closure of ASD remain uncertain. METHODS: Seventy ASD patients, who underwent transcatheter closure, were studied. Their mean age was 57.80 ± 16.88 years, 42 (60%) were female, and LV ejection fraction (LVEF) was 66.76% ± 7...

REVIEW
James E Dalen, Joseph S Alpert
Patients with cryptogenic strokes are more likely to have a patent foremen ovale than in the general population. It is speculated that these strokes are due to paradoxical embolism- that is passage of a venous thrombus across the patent foremen ovale to enter the arterial circulation, resulting in an embolic stroke. Venous thromboembolism is rarely present in these cases of cryptogenic stroke. Thousands of patients with cryptogenic strokes have undergone transcatheter closure of their patent foremen ovale via a variety of devices...

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia is a rare autosomal-dominant condition affecting visceral blood vessel development. Cerebral and most commonly pulmonary arteriovenous malformations are found in the majority of symptomatic patients. The most common complications include embolic strokes and cerebral abscesses, which have been attributed to abnormal vessel communications. Platypnea orthodeoxia is a rare condition that presents dyspnea and oxygen desaturation when adopting an upright position and is relieved on decubitus...

REVIEW

Chronic oral anticoagulation therapy is the standard therapy for preventing thromboembolic events in patients with atrial fibrillation. However, oral anticoagulation has been associated with an increased risk of bleeding events, and despite the improvements linked to the introduction of direct oral anticoagulants, more than one third of atrial fibrillation patients still remain untreated. Over the past decade, percutaneous left atrial appendage closure has emerged as a valid alternative to anticoagulation therapy for the prevention of stroke/systemic embolism in patients with atrial fibrillation...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of a novel Cocoon Duct Occluder device for the transcatheter closure (TCC) of large patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). METHODS: In this prospective, non-randomized study, consecutive patients with large PDA (narrowest diameter: ≥3.5/4.0 mm in symptomatic/asymptomatic patients, respectively), who underwent TCC with Cocoon Duct Occluder at our institute between November, 2012 and June, 2016 were examined...

BACKGROUND: Although the femoral approach is the most common route utilized in transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) it still carries a substantial risk of severe bleeding and vascular complications. The aim of our study was to compare the safety and efficacy of the complete percutaneous (CPC) approach with surgical cutdown and closure (SCC) in TAVI patients. METHODS: The study population comprised 683 patients with severe aortic stenosis who underwent transfemoral TAVI...

A 6.5-year-old male Border Collie presented for transcatheter closure of an atrial septal defect due to exercise intolerance and cyanosis while working and training at altitude. A small, left-to-right shunting secundum atrial septal defect was confirmed with no evidence of significant right-sided volume overload. Pulmonary hypertension with subsequent right-to-left interatrial shunting occurring during exercise at high altitude was suspected and prompted the closure of the defect due to the dog's continued athletic requirements...

AIM: To determine anatomic and hemodynamic echocardiographic predictors for patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) device vs coil closure. METHODS: Seventy-six patients who were referred for elective transcatheter PDA closure were enrolled in the study. All patients underwent full echocardiogram including measurement of the PDA pulmonary end diameter, color flow width and extent, peak and end-diastolic Doppler gradients across the duct, diastolic flow reversal, left atrial dimensions and volume, left ventricular sphericity index, and volumes...

Paravalvular leak (PVL) remains a significant problem after transcatheter aortic valve replacement. PVL is associated with long-term morbidity and mortality. Percutaneous management of post-TAVR PVL seems to be feasible and should be adopted by the structural heart interventionalist.

There has not been much progress in the development of transcatheter tricuspid valves to treat tricuspid regurgitation because of the difficulty in anchoring a stented valve onto the complex tricuspid annulus. Hence, the concept of heterotopic implantation of the transcatheter tricuspid valve onto the cavo-atrial junction was proposed. However, to date there has been no detailed in vitro investigation of the hemodynamic performance of this new device. The study utilises both 2-D and 3-D particle image velocimetry (PIV) to interrogate the flow patterns in the vicinity of the extra-cardiac tricuspid valves in an in vitro physiological flow loop, specifically at four measurement locations in the cavo-atrial anatomy...

INTRODUCTION: Transcatheter closure has become the treatment of choice for secundum atrial septal defects (ASD II), but particularly in small children, there is concern regarding procedure-related complications. CASE DESCRIPTION: We report on a 10-month-old infant, body weight of 6.4 kg, with a large ASD who was referred for failure to thrive and dyspnea on exertion. Echocardiography showed two neighboring ASDs centrally located within an atrial septum with a length of 27 mm resulting in significant left-to-right shunting...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac catheterization relies on X-ray imaging. Most procedures are now standardized. Interventionists must strive to minimize radiation exposure to reduce the risk of induced cancers. AIMS: To describe the radiation level in our institution, and evaluate the components contributing to radiation exposure, during transcatheter atrial septal defect (ASD) closure. METHODS: Radiation doses for ASD closure performed between January 2009 and November 2015 were reviewed retrospectively...

There are very few studies in the literature on respiratory system functions and complications of children with an atrial septal defect (ASD). The aim of this study is to investigate the pulmonary functions and pulmonary complications before and after transcatheter closure in children with an ASD. In this study, pulmonary function test parameters of 30 ASD patients between 5 and 18 years of age who were eligible to be treated by transcatheter ASD closure were compared with 30 healthy children. The patients undergoing transcatheter ASD closure received pulmonary function tests (PFT) at baseline (1 day before ASD closure), and 3 months after the procedure...

Atrial septal aneurysm (ASA) is a localized deformity of the interatrial septum, which protrudes into the right and/or left atrium. ASA with defects is a source of cardiac embolism. Although transcatheter closure is now a common procedure, it is still challenging in patients with complicated ASA. We describe a case of giant atypical multiperforated ASA with irregular mobility, which showed a rare "aneurysm in aneurysm" structure. Real-time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography showed vivid images, which clearly demonstrated these irregular shaped defects mimicking the atriotomy view, and played a crucial role in guiding the transcatheter closure...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To review current controversies in the transcatheter device closure of ostium secundum atrial septal defects (ASD). RECENT FINDINGS: Transcatheter device closure of ASD (TC-ASD) has well established efficacy and safety. For most individual patients with suitable anatomy, TC-ASD is the preferred method for treating ASD. The availability of large multicenter data sets has made it possible to study practice patterns at a range of hospitals across the United States...
