A Long-Term Complication Occurred After Transcatheter Closure of Large Atrial Septal Defect.

A Long-Term Complication Occurred After Transcatheter Closure of Large Atrial Septal Defect. Int Heart J. 2020 Jan 17;: Authors: Zhao C, Xu J, Cui D, Liu K Abstract Transcatheter closure of ostium secondum atrial septal defect has become an alternative method to surgical closure. However, the incidence of complications and long-term results of using large size (> 40 mm) Amplatzer septal occluders are unknown. This case reported a 59 years old woman, whom received transcatheter closure of atrial septal defect (36 mm) with a 40 mm Amplatzer septal occluder 10 years ago and was diagnosed with heart failure. Transthroacic echocardiography showed severe mitral valve regurgitation. Intra-operatively, we confirmed and removed the large device, but we found that the mitral annulus was badly damaged. Mitral valve replacement was performed. We believe large size devices need to be implanted cautiously, especially for the large defect with insufficient rims, and also routinely follow-up is necessary.

We present the case of a patient with a milder form of EA and a contribution of dysplasia, with the disease undiagnosed until his eighties when he developed heart failure accompanied by significant tricuspid regurgitation. Tricuspid valve replacement with a bioprosthesis and atrial septal defect occlusion were followed by significant improvement of RV function and remission of the patient’s problems.

CONCLUSIONS: Totally endoscopic ASD closure with a glutaraldehyde-treated autologous pericardial patch demonstrated excellent outcomes. It is a useful option for patients with unfavorable anatomy or other reasons excluding transcatheter intervention. PMID: 28179595 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

THE LEFT ventricular assist device (LVAD) provides mechanical circulatory support for patients with medically refractory heart failure and has been shown to improve outcomes in this population.1 –5 The continuous-flow (CF) LVAD system provides hemodynamic support by unloading the left ventricle (LV) continuously and, to some degree, also unloads the left atrium (LA) as a secondary phenomenon.1,6–9 Furthermore, although LVAD therapy reduces right ventricular afterload, it has been shown to have minimal impact on right atrial (RA) pressure.

The objective is to demonstrate safety and early clinical results of surgical transapical closure of paravalvular leaks (PVLs) following mitral valve replacement in significant regurgitation. Between March 2014 and February 2015, 12 patients (mean age 52.1 ± 6.0 years, 66.6% male) with severe symptomatic mitral PVLs (n = 13) underwent surgical transapical closure procedure through left mini‚Äźthoracotomy. All patients were in NYHA functional class III–IV and median logistic EuroSCORE was 24.2 ± 6.4% (range, 13.5–34.6%). Indications were heart failure (n&th...

This report describes a 26-year-old young woman, who had recurrent abortions and stillbirths and detected to have marked cyanosis with hypoplastic right heart, sub-arterial ventricular septal defect, absent pulmonary valve, non-compaction of the left ventricle, and bicuspid aortic valve with aortic regurgitation. The patient died owing to progressive heart failure 4 years after the diagnosis was made.

We report the case of a 61-year-old woman with acute decompensated heart failure secondary to acute traumatic mitral regurgitation, resulting from polymethylmethacrylate cement found in the left ventricle less than 24 hours after fluoroscopic percutaneous vertebroplasty. The patient had a history of ovarian cancer and had undergone treatment for symptomatic osteoporotic compression fractures of the vertebrae (T11, L1, and L3). The patient underwent a successful emergency open-heart operation, mitral valve replacement, closure of an atrial septal defect, and video-assisted removal of the cement foreign body from the left ve...
