Surgical correction for sinus venosus atrial septal defect with partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection in a dog

Publication date: Available online 11 February 2020Source: Journal of Veterinary CardiologyAuthor(s): Takeshi Mizuno, Masashi Mizuno, Kayoko Harada, Hiroshi Takano, Asako Shinoda, Arane Takahashi, Kazuya Mamada, Kazuki Takamura, Ayaka Chen, Koji Iwanaga, Shin Ono, Masami UechiAbstractA 5-year-old male Toy Poodle was referred for corrective surgery of an atrial septal defect. A sinus venosus-type atrial septal defect (ASD) with partial anomalous venous connection, suspected pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary edema was confirmed by radiography, echocardiography, and cardiac computed tomography. Thoracic radiographs showed right heart enlargement. Echocardiography revealed right atrial and ventricular dilatation with mild flattening of the interventricular septum. Left-to-right shunt flow through the ASD was observed on color Doppler examination. Surgical correction of the sinus venous ASD with a partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection was performed under cardiopulmonary bypass. A follow-up evaluation at 1 year after surgery showed resolution of the right-sided volume overload and no evidence of recurrence of ASD. Complications were not observed. Our findings indicate that surgical correction under cardiopulmonary bypass is a valid treatment option for an ASD with a partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection.

Pulmonary artery systolic pressure – MCQ – Answer Normal pulmonary artery systolic pressure – Correct Answer: b) 15 – 30 mm Hg Pulmonary circulation is a low pressure circulation and the pressures are much lower than that of systemic circulation. An acute rise in systolic pressure to 50 mmHg can cause right heart failure in conditions like pulmonary embolism. But gradually rising pressures are better tolerated as the right ventricle has time to compensate by hypertrophy. In severe primary pulmonary hypertension and atrial septal defect with severe pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary pressures can eve...

PULMONARY HEMODYNAMICS AND WAVE REFLECTIONS IN ADULTS WITH ATRIAL SEPTAL DEFECTS. Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol. 2020 Mar 06;: Authors: Ting CT, Chen JW, Chang MS, Yin FCP Abstract Using high-fidelity micromanometers and flow velocity sensors at right heart catheterization, we compared pulmonary hemodynamics and wave reflections in age-matched normal adults and those with atrial septal defects, separated into three subgroups based on levels of mean pulmonary artery pressure: low ( 26 mmHg). We made baseline measurements in all groups and after intravenous sodium nitroprusside in the subgroups. All t...

AbstractTranscatheter closure of large atrial septal defects (ASDs) remains controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and safety of transthoracic echocardiography (TTE)-guided transcatheter closure of large ASDs. Patients with large secundum ASDs ( ≥ 30 mm) who underwent device closure were retrospectively reviewed. TTE was performed to guide ASD occluder positioning and assess the immediate and long-term outcomes. A total of 60 patients (median age 43.5 years, range 15–78 years) were enrolled in the study. The median ASD size was 35  mm (range 30–42 ...

Patients with simple shunt lesions, such as atrial septal defect (ASD), ventricular septal defect (VSD) and persistent arterial duct (PDA) remain at risk of developing pulmonary hypertension (PH) even after correction of their cardiac defect. We aimed to assess the contemporary prevalence of PH in a well characterized nationwide group of patients based on the German National Register for Congenital Heart Defects.
