11/114. Wheezing as the sole clinical manifestation of cor triatriatum.

    Cardiac malformations involving low-pressure chambers (i.e., either of the atria) are more often diagnosed later in life than lesions that involve high-pressure systems such as ventricular septal defects or persistent ducti arteriosi. patients with congenital heart disease involving the atria may present only symptoms suggesting lung disease. We report on a child with recurrent episodes of wheezing, which did not respond to albuterol nebulizations and intravenous corticosteroids; he was subsequently found to have cor triatriatum. When a patient suffers from recurrent episodes of lower pulmonary infection and wheezing, despite appropriate management for asthma, less common (including cardiac) causes should be considered.

12/114. Postsurgical use of amplatzer septal occluder in cyanotic patients with pulmonary atresia/intact ventricular septum: significance of cor triatriatum dexter and dilated right atrium.

    Percutaneous closure of secundum atrial septal defects (ASDs) has been shown to be safe and effective. However, its role after surgery in patients with cyanotic congenital heart disease who may have associated cor triatriatum dexter and a dilated right atrium has not been established. This article reports on successful closure in such patients, including precautions and results. ( info)

13/114. Correction of cor triatriatum sinistrum in a Jehovah's Witness infant.

    A cor triatriatum sinistrum was successfully treated by operation in a 14-week-old infant of a Jehovah's Witness family. The child was pretreated with erythropoietin until a hemoglobin level of 14 g/dl was obtained. There was no cardiac catheterization before the operation. The operation was performed with cardiopulmonary bypass. No blood products were transfused and the hemoglobin level after performing modified ultrafiltration was 11.5 g/dl. The infant was extubated on the same day and discharged from our institution on the eighth day after surgery. Two years after surgery the child is in sinus rhythm and is developing well. ( info)

14/114. Congenital pulmonary vein stenosis associated with cor triatriatum.

    We report an 11-year-old boy who underwent surgical correction for stenosis of the right and left lower pulmonary veins at their junction with the left atrium and associated cor triatriatum. The embryology and therapeutic approaches to congenital pulmonary veins stenosis are discussed. ( info)

15/114. cor triatriatum dexter: transesophageal echocardiographic diagnosis and 3-dimensional reconstruction.

    cor triatriatum dexter is an unusual cardiac abnormality with division between the sinus and primitive atrial portions of the right atrium. Three-dimensional echocardiography is a novel technique that defines this entity. ( info)

16/114. Doppler echocardiographic findings in 2 identical variants of a rare cardiac anomaly, "subtotal" cor triatriatum: a critical review of the literature.

    Improved diagnostic procedures of echocardiography and better awareness of the anomaly and its possible variants lead the examiner to the right diagnosis of the rare cor triatriatum sinister. We describe two cases of a variant of "subtotal" cor triatriatum sinister. A uniform classification system is desirable to compare cases, treatment, and outcome. ( info)

17/114. Unusual finding of cor triatriatum in a newborn with hypoplastic left heart syndrome.

    cor triatriatum is a rare anomaly in which the left atrium is partitioned into 2 distinct chambers with a variable degree of obstruction to left atrial inflow. This anomaly often occurs in isolation but can occur in combination with other cardiac lesions. The association of cor triatriatum with hypoplastic left heart syndrome has not been reported. We describe a newborn with hypoplastic left heart syndrome who also had the unusual finding of cor triatriatum sinistrum. ( info)

18/114. Thrombosed chamber of cor-triatriatum mimicking left atrial tumor (case report).

    Cor-triatriatum is an uncommon congenital cardiac anomaly. In this case report, transesophageal echocardiographic and operative findings in a 57-year-old female with cor-triatriatum are presented. ( info)

19/114. Divided right atrium associated with extensive coronary vein abnormalities.

    This report describes a case of a divided right atrium associated with coronary vein abnormalities. An 18-year-old woman who had a past history of surgery for repair of a divided right atrium and atrial septal defect developed exertional dyspnea 8 years after the surgery. Selective coronary angiography showed a dilated right coronary artery with a fistulous communication to the right atrium, tortuous coronary veins draining directly into the cardiac chambers, and the absence of the coronary sinus. Embryologically, regression failure of the right venous valve is hypothesized to have created both the divided right atrium and extensive coronary vein abnormalities. ( info)

20/114. Single-stage anatomical repair of complete atrioventricular canal, double-outlet right ventricle, and cor triatriatum using ventricular septal defect translocation.

    A 17-month-old girl underwent successful single-stage anatomic repair using a technique of ventricular septal defect translocation for complete atrioventricular canal, double-outlet right ventricle, pulmonary stenosis, cor triatriatum, and left superior vena cava to an unroofed coronary sinus. We describe the repair and present clinical and angiographic data from 9 years follow-up. ( info)
