Abstract The present report describes a case of recurrent device related thrombosis after left atrial appendage occlusion. Since the thrombus always located below the pulmonary ridge, flow turbulence was felt to be a relevant factor on its generation. Using CT to evaluate flow dynamics, two simulations were run and showed that the presence of flow turbulence might explain the thrombus recurrence.

Abstract Background The substantial risk of thrombosis in large coronary artery aneurysms (CAA) (maximum z-score ever recorded ≥10) after Kawasaki disease (KD) mandates effective thromboprophylaxis. We sought to determine the effectiveness of anticoagulation (low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) or warfarin) for thromboprophylaxis in large CAA. Methods Data were used from 383 patients enrolled in the International KD Registry (IKDR). Time-to-event analysis was used to account for differences in t...
Abstract Background Transposition of the great arteries (TGA) may present as a life-threatening neonatal malformation. Although prenatal detection facilitates the perinatal management, the impact on outcome is controversial. Methods This study reviewed the differences in prenatal TGA diagnosis from 2009-2014 among the 5 geographic areas in Ontario and compared the management, morbidity and mortality among neonates with a prenatal (prenatal cohort; n=70) vs a postnatal (postnatal cohort; n=76) an...

Abstract Background Right heart function is an important prognostic determinant in cardiac amyloidosis. This study characterized serial changes in right and left heart function and evaluated their prognostic significance. Methods Cardiac amyloidosis patients with baseline and follow-up echocardiograms were included. Right and left heart function measured at baseline, 1-year and most recent follow-up were compared and correlated with all-cause mortality or cardiovascular hospitalization. Results ...

Abstract This is a case report of a patient presenting an extremely rare cardiac malignancy named malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor. The 18F-fluorodeoxyglucosis positron emission tomography associated to computed tomography (18F-FDG PET/CT) accesses the tumor anatomy and metabolic activity, thereby making it possible to characterize a malignant neoplasm in a non-invasive way. The diagnostic approach with 18F-FDG PET/CT spared the heart from a likely futile invasive procedure when detecting...

Abstract Background Tools are needed to identify patients at increased risk following TAVR. Indexed-stroke-volume (SVi) is an echocardiographic measurement that is used for low gradient aortic stenosis (LG-AS). We studied whether low SVi is a high-risk marker in high gradient HG-AS patients and we assessed the relationship between SVi and LV systolic function in contributing to this risk. Methods 816 consecutive patients who underwent TAVR were screened, and only patients with HG-AS were include...
