Diagnosis of anomalous origin of the right coronary artery from the pulmonary artery by echocardiography

ConclusionARCAPA can be diagnosed by echocardiography but is prone to misdiagnosis. This malformation should be distinguished from coronary artery fistula.

Transcatheter closure is the first-choice treatment strategy in most cases of secundum-type atrial septal defect (ASD). Recently, it was recognized that a prominent Eustachian valve (EV) can be a risk in ASD and patent foramen ovale (PFO) closure. Incorrect identification of prominent EV as the inferior rim of ASD during surgical and transcatheter closure can cause serious complications.1 The inferior vena cava (IVC) and EV are well visualized in the bicaval view (midesophageal 90 °) on transesophageal echocardiography (TEE).

Murphy, Lindsay Clough, Deptmer Ashley, Emilio FentanesAbstractPlatypnea-orthodeoxia syndrome is a rare cause of dyspnea, which presents upon standing and resolves when supine. Etiology is multifactorial with a functional component and an anatomical shunt. The most commonly reported shunt is an atrial septal defect, however a shunt can occur in advanced hepatic or pulmonary disease. Treatment is dependent on the type and location of the shunt. In atrial septal defects percutaneous repair is prefe...

We present a patient with severe TR who underwent transcatheter tricuspid valve repair (TTVR) using the MitraClip system, with the development of LR shunt through an iatrogenic ASD. Provisional occlusion of ASD after TTVR should be considered in patients with residual LR shunt and iatrogenic ASD. PMID: 31567118 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Atrial septal defect is a persistent interatrial communication. It is the second most common congenital heart defect and is detected in 1:1500 live births. Clinical course is variable and depends on the size of the malformation. Clinical diagnosis is based on patient history, physical and instrumental examination. Atrial septal defect is frequently sporadic, but familial cases have been reported. The disease has autosomal dominant inheritance with reduced penetrance, variable expressivity and genetic heterogeneity. Supravalvular aortic stenosis is a congenital narrowing of the lumen of the ascending aorta...

A 17-year-old female, having previously undergone bidirectional Glenn shunt surgery 10 years back, presented with complaints of gradually progressive dyspnea on exertion for the past 3 months with episodes of bilateral pedal swelling. Sheunderwent a cardiac computed tomography angiography which demonstrated tricuspid atresia with hypoplastic and hypertrophied right ventricle (RV) and atrial septal defect (Supplementary video files 1 –2). There was associated membranous pulmonary atresia (PA, dotted circle) (Fig.

The objective of this study is to evaluate if the diagnosis of a complex congenital heart disease (CHD) was missed in a patient with Down syndrome (DS) who had a fetal echocardiogram that was read as normal. Secondary goal of this study was to determine if any CHD was missed postnatally when a fetal echocardiogram was read as normal. A retrospective chart review of children with DS at Nationwide Children ’s Hospital whose birthdates were between 1/1/2010 and 12/31/2017 was performed. Patients were included if they had a fetal echocardiogram that was read as normal and also had a postnatal echocardiogram performed. On...
