Abstract Pathologies of the atrial septum include different interatrial communications varying from patent foramen ovale (PFO) to true defects. Atrial septal defects (ASDs) may be localized within the fossa ovalis such as the secundum type ASD or outside the region of fossa ovalis, such as the ostium primum defect and sinus venosus defect. Over the last decades, the percutaneous closure of interatrial shunts has become a feasible and safe method. During these procedures, the delicate balance between thrombotic risk, device sealing process and bleeding risk is crucial. In this review we sought to describe current a...

We presented twenty-four cases which also had postnatal echocardiographic examination in our hospital. A t the time of diagnosis of ASP, the mean maternal age was 31.1 ± 5.7 years, the mean gestational age was 28.9 ± 5.9 weeks, the mean birth week was 37.4 ± 3.1 weeks, and the mean birth weight was 2940.8 ± 736.6 g. The postnatal first 3 months prevalences of atrial septal ane urysm, patent foramen ovale and, secundum atrial septal defect (ASD) were 12.5%, 12.5%, 20.8% among fetuses with ASP, respectively. ASP ...

IN THIS issue of the Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia, Villablanca et al. evaluated whether the presence and diagnosis of a patent foramen ovale (PFO) or atrial septal defect (ASD) preoperatively was associated with an increase in perioperative stroke for patients undergoing noncardiac surgery.1 The authors used “big data” to describe the largest study to date of 19,659,191 hospitalizations retrieved from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project's National Readmission Database.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Previous studies demonstrated that the incidence of atrial fibrillation (AF) was significantly increased when patients aged ≥40 years had surgical atrial septal defect (ASD) closure (sASD). However, limited information is available on such findings in transcatheter ASD closure (tASD). The purpose of this study was to investigate the incidence of newly developed AF after tASD in patients aged ≥40 years in whom preoperative AF or atrial flutter (AFL) had not been detected and to compare with the incidence after sASD. METHODS: The medical records of patients aged ≥40 years without a...

Authors: Rat N, Muntean I, Opincariu D, Gozar L, Togănel R, Chițu M Abstract Development of interventional methods has revolutionized the treatment of structural cardiac diseases. Given the complexity of structural interventions and the anatomical variability of various structural defects, novel imaging techniques have been implemented in the current clinical practice for guiding the interventional procedure and for selection of the device to be used. Three- dimensional echocardiography is the most used imaging method that has improved the threedimensional assessment of cardiac structures, and it has considerably...

A former resident texted me this ECG, done for epigastric pain in an 18 year old.  The pain resolved immediately with treatment for acid reflux, and in the clinician's opinion was clearly GI in origin, but he wanted to know what the strange waves in the QRS were:See the unusual notching in II, III, aVF, and V2-V4.I had no idea what they were.  They reminded me of theDelayed Activation Wave associated with circumflex acute MI.See this case: https://hqmeded-ecg.blogspot.com/2018/05/is-there-delayed-activation-wave.html.But they are clearly different from this.I put it on Facebook EKG club and this is the ...

CONCLUSIONS: A regimen of 100 mg of ASA for six months after ASD/PFO closure appeared to be both safe and effective in preventing device thrombosis and major bleedings. PMID: 31902564 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

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).
