Morphological basis for the study of the interatrial septum in the human fetus. (1/81)

OBJECTIVE: To describe morphological features of the interatrial septum in normal fetuses, especially foramen ovale (FO) and septum primum (SP), in order to compare septum primum excursion with foramen ovale diameter. METHODS: Septum primum excursion (SPE) toward the left atrium (LA) and foramen ovale diameter (FOD) were measured in the hearts of ten formaldehyde-fixed human fetuses ranging from 28 to 36 weeks of gestation. Histological sections were obtained from the foramen ovale (FO), septum primum (SP), septum secundum (SS), left atrium (LA), and right atrium (RA). RESULTS: FOD and SPE measurements were the following: FOD 3.1-3.5 mm and SPE 2.8-3.1 mm in three fetuses with presumed gestational age (GA) of 28 weeks; FOD 3.3-3.5 mm, and SP excursion 4.0-5.0 mm in four fetuses with presumed GA of 34 weeks, plus FOD 3.3-4.5 mm and SPE 6.0-9.0 in three fetuses with presumed GA of 36 weeks. Cardiac muscular fibers were identified in both the septum primum and secundum. CONCLUSION: Based on its muscular components, it may be suggested that SP is active in character, influencing blood flow through the FO, SP mobility, and its excursion into the LA.  (+info)

Migraineurs with patent foramen ovale have larger right-to-left shunt despite similar atrial septal characteristics. (2/81)

The objective of the study was to assess differences in proportion of large right-to-left shunt (RLS) and atrial septal characteristics between migraineurs and non-migraineurs referred for transcatheter closure of patent foramen ovale (PF0). This retrospective study took place in a large metropolitan medical centre. The patients were migraineurs with aura (n=52), migraineurs without aura (n=19) and non-migraineurs (n=149). RLS was evaluated before closure using bilateral power m-mode transcranial Doppler at rest and after calibrated, sustained Valsalva manoeuvre, and graded with a validated 0-5 scale. Intracardiac echocardiography was used to assess atrial septal characteristics. Migraineurs had a higher proportion of large RLS (Grade IV or V) than nonmigraineurs at rest and after calibrated Valsalva (rest, p=0.04; Valsalva, p=0.01). Atrial septal characteristics were similar between groups. Migraine is associated with larger RLS at rest and strain; however migraine status does not predict PFO characteristics.  (+info)

Completely endoscopic removal of a dislocated Amplatzer atrial septal defect closure device. (3/81)

Surgical treatment of residual shunts after transcatheter occlusion of atrial septal defect or patent foramen ovale is reported in approximately one to two percent of these percutaneous interventions. Minimally invasive surgery on the atrial septum is getting more and more common but little data is available on Amplatzer device explantation through limited access. No completely endoscopic device removal has been described previously. We report a case of a 57-year-old woman in whom an Amplatzer device was removed in a robotic totally endoscopic fashion through ports only using the daVinci telemanipulation system.  (+info)

The structure and components of the atrial chambers. (4/81)

We discuss the implications of accurate knowledge of the human atrial chambers for those seeking to model atrial structure, and correlate the muscular activity with electrical signals. We stress first the importance of describing atrial components in attitudinally appropriate fashion, a feature sadly ignored by generations of morphologists. When considered relative to the body, the right atrium is positioned anteriorly relative to its alleged left-sided counterpart. We then described how each atrium possesses a venous component, an appendage, a vestibule, these parts being supported by the body of the atrium, and how the two chambers are separated by the septum. We extend this information by describing the detailed structure of each atrium, and then emphasise that it is only the floor of the oval fossa, and its antero-inferior rim, that are true septal structures. The so-called 'septum secundum' is the superior interatrial fold. Emphasis is then given to the muscular connections between the atriums, these unions obviously underscoring the potential for interatrial conduction. We then continue by discussing the structure of the atrial walls, which vary markedly in their thickness. It is the alignment of the myocytes within these walls that determines the velocity of conduction through them. In this setting, we also discuss the morphological features that distinguish between working myocytes and the myocytes of the conduction system, stressing the importance of rules established almost 100 years ago.  (+info)

Septal atrial pacing for the prevention of atrial fibrillation. (5/81)

AIMS: Atrial fibrillation (AF) produces significant morbidity and mortality. The current method of permanent pacing of the right atrium (RA) may cause delayed interatrial conduction and predispose to AF. We hypothesized that atrial septal pacing would reduce AF compared with high RA pacing. METHODS AND RESULTS: The patients were randomized into two groups. After randomization, patients received a dual-chamber rate-responsive device capable of mode-switching with advanced telemetry features. Devices were programmed in a standardized manner. To be eligible, the patients were required to have a conventional indication for a permanent pacemaker and recurrent paroxysmal AF. Group 1 was paced from high RA and Group 2 was paced from the atrial septum. Analysis of 43 patients who have completed 6 months of follow-up and 22 patients who completed 12 months of follow-up showed no significant differences in the number of mode-switching episodes or in AF burden between groups (P = NS by Mann-Whitney) although there was a trend for less AF with septal pacing. There were no differences in thresholds, sensing, or lead impedance. Lead parameters remained stable over time and there were no displacements of the electrodes after implantation. No patient experienced lead-related complications. A significant variability in AF burden was noted in this patient population. CONCLUSIONS: Implantation of an atrial-active fixation lead on the atrial septum is safe and feasible. However, this study showed no significant difference between septal pacing and high atrial pacing, using the endpoints of AF duration and number of AF episodes.  (+info)

N2 - Cross sectional echocardiographic visualization of the interatrial septum in both normal persons and patients with atrial septal defects has been reported. Although septal defects can generally be visualized, false positives are frequently encountered. This study evaluated whether visualizing the patterns of contrast flow in the region of an apparent atrial septal defect by cross sectional echocardiography could aid in the differentiation of true defects from false positives. We studied 25 patients - 13 with intact interatrial septa and 12 with atrial septal defects. Contrast was visualized in the right atrium in 24 of 25 patients (all 13 normal patients, and 11 of 12 patients with atrial septal defects). In all patients with intact ...

Closure of the primary atrial foramen is achieved by fusion of the atrioventricular cushions with the mesenchymal cap on the leading edge of the muscular primary atrial septum. A fourth component involved is the vestibular spine, originally described by His in 1880 as an intra-cardiac continuation of the extra-cardiac mesenchyme of the dorsal mesocardium. The morphogenesis of this area is of great clinical interest, because of the high incidence of atrial and atrioventricular septal defects. Nonetheless, the origin of the participating components is largely unknown. Here we report that the primary atrial foramen is surrounded in its entirety by mesenchyme derived from endocardium. A second population of mesenchyme not derived from endocardium was observed at the caudal margin of the mesenchymal atrial cap, entirely embedded within the mesenchyme derived from endocardium and contiguous with the mesenchyme of the dorsal mesocardium. Our reconstructions show this second population does indeed take the form
Results TTE at 1 month showed persistent iASD in 57% (1M-iASD). Mean LA pressure after clip was significantly higher in patients with 1M-iASD than patients without 1M-iASD (17±6 mm Hg vs 15±5 mm Hg, p=0.01). Among patients with 1M-iASD, 24 patients (35%) had persistent iASD at 12 months (12M-iASD). Mean LA pressure after clip was significantly higher in patients with 12M-iASD than patients without 12M-iASD (19±6 mm Hg vs 16±6 mm Hg, p=0.04). Patients with 12M-iASD did not significantly differ from patients without 12M-iASD in terms of right heart enlargement, estimated systolic pulmonary artery pressure, New York Heart Association functional class and brain natriuretic peptide at 12 months. Logistic regression analysis, however, showed that mean LA pressure after clip was significantly associated with persistent iASD at 12 months in patients with 1M-iASD even after adjustment for cardiac index after clip and the prevalence of mitral regurgitation ≥3+ at 12 months (OR 1.10 per 1 mm Hg, 95% ...

Is it time for urologists to begin to rethink the radical cystectomy and begin to explore trimodality therapy? Maybe - maybe not - it depends on who you ask. Lets go over a few things first, though, before we jump right in.. (TMT) Trimodality Therapy is not some radical new line of treatment. The Tri stands for three modalities of treatment: chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery. And again, while nothing new, the treatments used in combination to fight bladder cancer are a course of treatment that allows the patient to keep their bladder rather than have it removed.. (RC) Radical Cystectomy is typically the removal of the entire bladder, lymph nodes in proximity to the bladder, part of the urethra, and any organ tissue in proximity that does or could have cancerous cells..

The echocardiographic features of congenital left ventricular inflow obstruction are described in six patients. The echocardiograms in two patients with cor triatriatum were distinguished by normal mitral valve motion and an abnormal echo within the left atrium. In two patients with supravalvar mitral ring, in addition to abnormal mitral valve motion, an abnormal echo, presumably originating from the obstructive membrane, was located between the anterior and posterior mitral leaflets. In two cases of parachute mitral valve, mitral valve motion was abnormal. In one of these cases there were multiple mitral valve echoes similar to those found in supravalvar mitral ring. The echocardiographic identification of an obstructive membrane within the left atrium is difficult because of the occurrence of artifacts. However, membranes may be identified if careful scanning techniques are employed in patients in whom left ventricular inflow obstruction is suspected. The echocardiogram is useful in detecting ...
Aneurysms of the interatrial septum are rare. They have been associated with complications such as embolic phenomena and atrioventricular orifice obstruction. We describe two patients, one adult and one child, with atrial septal aneurysms that were diagnosed by real-time, two-dimensional echocardiography. Atrial septal aneurysms appeared as thin, localized outpouchings of the atrial septum that protruded into the right atrium and showed marked variations in their contour and size during the cardiac cycle. They could be differentiated from other intra-atrial structures such as tumor mass, large eustachian valve and intra-atrial baffle by their relatively low reflectance, relationship to the atrial septum, considerable alterations in their outline during the cardiac cycle and characteristic patterns during peripheral venous contrast echocardiography. ...

Cardiac Catheterization in Children What is a cardiac catheterization? Cardiac catheterization is a specialized procedure in which a long, flexible tube (catheter) is inserted into a vein and guided into the heart, allowing a close look at the structures inside.

Our work here has been most fascinating. We are trying the use of left heart bypass for acute left heart failure. It is much simpler than trying to use an oxygenator too, and I have learned to put a cannula down the jugular, on man or the dog, with relative ease, through the atrial septum, and into the left atrium for the purpose. Angiocardiograms with dogs have shown that in this fashion we are able to run bypass effectively enough so that no blood at all passes into the left ventricle, and the aorta fills only in retrograde fashion from the cannula in the femoral artery. Of 10 dogs run in this fashion for 24 hours, nine are long-term survivors, and the 3 which died were lost from silly technical errors, such as burning the dog with a hot pad. Oxygen utilization studies have shown that such a measure cuts the use as measured from the coronary sinus-aorta A-V difference and sinus flow rate to about 40% of control values.

Objective: Percutaneous mitral balloon valvuloplasty (PMBV) is the method of choice in treatment of patients with hemodynamically significant mitral stenosis. We aimed to analyze acute and long-term clinical and echocardiographic consequences of PMBV. Methods: In this retrospective cohort study; 311 patients who underwent PMBV in our Cardiology Clinic at Turkiye Yuksek Ihtisas Education and Research Hospital between January 2000 and March 2004 were evaluated for acute procedural outcomes and primary endpoints (death, rePMBV, mitral valve replacement (MVR)). All 311 patients were contacted by phone call or letter at least five years after the procedure. Of the 311 patients, 87 who defined NYHA class II-IV symptoms were invited for a control visit and detailed echocardiographic evaluation. Sixty-three patients out of 87 who completed follow-up were enrolled for long-term consequences. Those 63 patients were subclassified into two groups as those without any negative event (n=26) (Group 1) and ...

N2 - Background The surgical outcomes of hypoplastic left heart syndrome with intact atrial septum remains very poor in spite of the introduction of prenatal diagnosis before the Norwood operation. The hybrid operation consisting of bilateral pulmonary artery banding and balloon atrioseptectomy is one of the treatment strategies to potentially improve this patient population, however, the long-term outcomes are unknown. Methods Six consecutive patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome with intact atrial septum, who underwent the hybrid operation between October 2006 and July 2014, were retrospectively reviewed. Hypoplastic left heart syndrome with highly restrictive atrial communication was excluded. Results Three patients died after the ...
Multivesicular, pulmonary and cardiac hydatidosis are rarely observed and can give rise to serious complications. Cysts can remain asymptomatic for a long time, until they reveal themselves perforating into cardiac chambers and/or pulmonary arteries or the systemic circulation. A rare case of multivesicular interatrial septum hydatid cyst with multiple pulmonary involvement in a native Italian farm labourer is reported. Clinical, radiological, serological and histological findings are described. MR imaging showed the exact anatomic location and the multivesicular nature of the cardiac cyst and was useful in planning surgical treatment. A successful outcome was achieved with a combination of pre- and post-operative albendazole therapy and a three-step surgery procedure. The patient made a rapid recovery and his post-operative period was totally uneventful. This case highlights the importance of an early multidisciplinary surgical approach and long-term chemotherapy treatment of this serious and rare

Swedish pioneered the PFO treatment, which involves using a special device - a tiny, double-umbrella apparatus - to seal a small congenital defect in the heart known as a patent foramen ovale (PFO). A PFO results from incomplete closure after birth in the atrial septum, which is a thin wall separating the upper chambers of the heart. It has been implicated as a potential cause for unexplained strokes in young adults. Repairing the defect may therefore reduce the patients future stroke risk.. Like PFO, an atrial septum defect (ASD) results from incomplete closure after birth in the wall between the left and right atria. About 7 percent of congenital heart defects fall into this category, and if the defect is large enough, oxygen-rich blood from the left atrium flows back into the right side of the heart and is pumped back to the lungs instead of to the rest of the body. This results in more work for the heart. Patients with large ASDs experience shortness of breath with physical exertion. ...
These develop at the lower end of the truncus arteriosus. At this level there are four swellings of sub-endocardial tissue - the right and left bulbar swellings and two acessory dorsal and ventral swellings. Separation of the fused bulbar ridges forms the aortic and pulmonary vessels each containing three swellings. Growth and excavation of the swellings results in the formation of the semilunar valves. Formation of the semilunar valves is complete by the end of the 9th week ...
1. Last Wednesday we had an appointment for BB#2 at a pediatric cardiology private practice.. 2. He was upset at first, but this time the office and the doctor were more relaxing, there were stuffed animals and the doctor tried to calm him down, and referred to his heart beat, as a frog so she tried to amke it interesting for him.. 3. So finally he calmed down enough and she could do an echocardiogram and an electrocardiogram! Hurray! This means I dont have to be admiteed to the hospital for a day for them to sedate BB#2 to do these tests.. 4. And for the results. I couldnt even imagine this good results. He had a PDA :Failure of a childs DA (ductus arteriosus) to close after birth. So now it looks like for sure his DA has closed all by it self! Hurray!. The last doctor also said he might have a Sinus venosus atrial septal defect, which is a deficiency of the atrial septum. But during this echocardiogram this Cardiologist said his atrial septum is intact, so ALL GOOD! I was soooooo glad to ...

Its 2018 and as I get older, Im starting to veer towards the conclusion that people are becoming desensitized to gratitude. As a whole, were becoming less thankful for the things we have and were always striving to have more. I dont see goals and dreams as a bad thing but if we cant be content with the beautiful things currently in our lives, how can we be content with lovely things, that are yet to come?. Last year, my brother, a London based, commercial finance consultant, was diagnosed with an extremely rare, congenital heart defect called Cor Tritriatum. The congenital heart condition accounts for an incredibly small percentage of the population in the United States and equates to 0.1-0.4%, of infants with congenital heart diseases.. To summarize it briefly, the human heart is divided into four chambers and two of those, are the atria. The two atria are separated from one another by a fibro-muscular wall of tissue, called the atrial septum. The ventricles are the other two chambers of ...
