ConclusionBoth transcatheter and robotic surgery approaches had excellent outcomes but transcatheter closure had shorter hospital and ICU stays. Robotic surgery provides a similar complication risk that can be comparable to the transcatheter approach as well as patient comfort and cosmetic advantage over the other surgical techniques.

Publication date: January 2020Source: Archives of Cardiovascular Diseases Supplements, Volume 12, Issue 1Author(s): M. Drissa, H. Jamila, H. DrissaBackgroundAtrial septal defect (ASD) is one of the most common causes of congenital heart disease manifested in adulthood and a subgroup of patients may not develop symptoms until late adulthood.Aim of studyThe aim of our study was to describe clinical and likelihood picture of adults over 60 years born with an ASD type II.MethodsWe performed a retrospective analysis of adult's ASD referred to our institution from 2010 through 2018. Clinical, electrocardiographic, echocardiograp...

AbstractCongenital right atrial aneurysm is a rare condition. Here we reported a 16 ‐year‐old male with giant right atrial aneurysm, atrial fibrillation, and atrial septal defect. Surgical resection of extensive right atrium, ASD repair, and maze procedure were performed. In the present case, we found extensive enlargement of right atrium protruding to the apex on the surface o f the right ventricle. With the exist of atrial fibrillation, thrombus formation was always a lethal threat. Surgical treatment can provide excellent clinical results and further avoided life‐threatening complications.

Abstract Stroke is a rare but possible complication after atrial fibrillation (AF) ablation. However, its etiopathogenesis is far from being completely characterized. Here we report a case of stroke, with recurrent peripheral embolism after AF ablation procedure. In our patient, an in situ femoral vein thrombosis and iatrogenic atrial septal defect were simultaneously detected. A comprehensive review of multiple pathophysiological mechanisms of stroke in this context is provided. The case underlines the importance of a global evaluation of patients undergoing AF ablation.

ConclusionPersistent IASD can occur rather frequently following AF CA. No significant difference was observed between the RF and CB techniques concerning the presence of IASD at 3-month. IASDs showed a high spontaneous closure rate. No cerebral thromboembolic event was observed in the 12-month FU period.

AbstractMinimally invasive mitral valve (MV) repair is being increasingly performed over the last 2 decades due to the constantly growing patient demand, since it offers a shorter recovery, less restriction and faster return to normal physical activities, reduction in pain, and superior cosmetic results. However, such procedures have to be performed through small incisions which limit visualization and the freedom of movement of the surgeon, in contrast to conventional operations that are performed through a sternotomy. Therefore, special long surgical instruments are required, and visualization is usually enhanced with ad...

CONCLUSION: Cryoballoon ablation for AF is feasible and safe in patients with simple and moderate forms of CHD, with an excellent acute success rate and modest 1-year freedom from recurrent AF. PMID: 31171960 [PubMed]
