Unusual Attachment of Left Atrial Myxoma: Role of Transesophageal Echocardiography

[Year:2016] [Month:January-June] [Volumn:4 ] [Number:1] [Pages:35] [Pages No:30-33]


ABSTRACT

Left atrial myxomas are usually attached to the interatrial septum. This case highlights the unusual site of attachment of left atrial myxoma. The site of attachment was via a broad stalk at the junction of mitral valve annulus close to anterior mitral leaflet and adjacent left atrial wall. Transesophageal echocardiography helped in the detection of site of attachment as well as in postoperative evaluation.

Keywords: Left atrial mass, Left atrial myxoma, TEE, TTE.

Echocardiographic Evaluation and Management of Right Ventricular Dysfunction during Cardiac Transplantation

[Year:2016] [Month:January-June] [Volumn:4 ] [Number:1] [Pages:35] [Pages No:10-13]


ABSTRACT

Cardiac allotransplantation has, over the years, become the established therapeutic modality for patients with end-stage heart failure. This case report focuses on the anesthetic challenges involved in the perioperative management of recipient with right ventricular dysfunction as well as echocardiographic assessment to assist in therapy.

Keywords: Cardiac transplant, Echocardiography, Right ventricle dysfunction.

Perioperative Ultrasonography Review

[Year:2016] [Month:January-June] [Volumn:4 ] [Number:1] [Pages:35] [Pages No:3-9]


ABSTRACT

Point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) has become increasingly utilized in modern medicine. Advancements in device technology and ease of use have dramatically broadened its clinical applications. The role in acute care specialties of a pointof- care device has allowed increased opportunities for patient assessment and management. The specialties of emergency medicine and critical care medicine have accepted POCUS in many aspects of clinical use as well as trainee education. Anesthesiology has begun to implement the use of POCUS, specifically transthoracic echocardiography, in the perioperative setting. Many elements of patient care can be addressed and modified using this as an assessment tool. This has led to in growth in ultrasonography training and the potential to be a staple of future anesthesiology care. Point-of-care ultrasonography may become vital to the forefront of management for improving perioperative patient care.

Keywords: Perioperative ultrasound, Point of care, Transthoracic.

ABSTRACT

The use of cardiac ultrasound in medical practice has been well known for almost 60 years. Although primarily a domain of cardiologists, anesthesiologists got involved in the practice of diagnostic intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) during cardiac surgery for nearly two decades.

Role of Perioperative Echocardiographic in Surgical Correction of the Pulmonary Venous Anomalies (with Invited Commentary by Professor Rupa Sreedhar)

[Year:2016] [Month:January-June] [Volumn:4 ] [Number:1] [Pages:35] [Pages No:19-26]


ABSTRACT

Anomalous pulmonary venous drainage is the anomalous drainage of one or more than one pulmonary vein draining into right atrium, superior vena cava, inferior vena cava, coronary sinus, or innominate vein. Right-sided pulmonary vein anomalous drainage is usually associated with sinus venosus type atrial septal defect. Pericardial patch repair and rerouting of the right pulmonary vein are commonly performed operations for such cases. These operations involve a risk of obstruction to the flow of superior vena cava or rerouted pulmonary vein in the postoperative period. The defects are well visualized on the transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). We are reporting three cases operated for anomalous drainage of right-sided pulmonary vein, highlighting the perioperative echocardiographic features.

Keywords: Anomalous pulmonary vein drainage, Sinus venosus defect, Transesophageal echocardiography.

Perioperative Transesophageal Echocardiographic Diagnosis of Membranous Interventricular Septal Aneurysm in Two Patients

[Year:2016] [Month:January-June] [Volumn:4 ] [Number:1] [Pages:35] [Pages No:14-16]


ABSTRACT

Aneurysms of interventricular septum are a rare anomaly usually seen as an incidental finding on echocardiography. Rarely, they can cause right ventricular outflow tract obstruction. They can present in patients having other cardiac lesions. Diagnosis of interventricular septal aneurysm is not straightforward. They can be confused with sinus of valsalva aneurysm or ventricular septal defect on transthoracic echocardiography. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) provides a better alternative to delineate the interventricular septal aneurysm. We describe the TEE diagnosis of membranous interventricular septal aneurysm in two dissimilar patients who presented for cardiac surgery at our cardiac center.

Keywords: Interventricular septum, Septal aneurysm, Transesophageal echocardiography.

Transesophageal Echocardiographic Evaluation of Crisscross Heart with Atrioventricular Valve Regurgitation for Fontan Procedure

[Year:2016] [Month:January-June] [Volumn:4 ] [Number:1] [Pages:35] [Pages No:27-29]


ABSTRACT

Crisscross heart (CCH) is a rare congenital cardiac malformation characterized by crossing of systemic and pulmonary venous blood streams at atrioventricular (A-V) level due to an apparent twisting of the heart about its long axis. In the literature, perioperative evaluation of CCH by transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) has not been described. Here we report a rare case of CCH, post Glenn procedure with A-V valve regurgitation, evaluated by TEE for valve repair/replacement followed by completion of Fontan surgery.

Keywords: Atrioventricular valve, Crisscross heart, Double outlet right ventricle, Fontan, Transesophageal echocardiography.

Pulmonary Artery Perforation: Rare reported Complication of Pericardiectomy for Chronic Constrictive Pericarditis recorded on Transesophageal Echocardiography

[Year:2016] [Month:January-June] [Volumn:4 ] [Number:1] [Pages:35] [Pages No:17-18]


ABSTRACT

Major vessel injury is a possible complication during pericardiectomy for chronic constrictive pericarditis (CCP). We present a case of CCP, who while undergoing radical pericardiectomy incurred an iatrogenic injury of a major vessel with profuse bleeding. A rent in main pulmonary artery (MPA) was detected by the surgical team and simultaneously confirmed on transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), and a timely intervention was done. Importance of monitoring TEE in a patient undergoing pericardiectomy for CCP is highlighted.

Keywords: Constrictive pericarditis, Monitoring, Pericardiectomy, Pulmonary artery perforation, Transesophageal echocardiography.
