1/232. Atrial and venous thrombosis secondary to septic arthritis of the sacroiliac joint in a child with hereditary protein c deficiency.

    Septic arthritis and osteomyelitis in children is seldom accompanied by calf vein thrombosis and rarely by atrial thrombosis. We report the case of an 11-year, 5-month-old boy with septic arthritis and osteomyelitis of the sacroiliac region who developed deep venous thrombosis, in addition to life-threatening right atrial thrombosis. After an intensive hematologic investigation, a hereditary protein c deficiency was revealed. The association of venous thrombosis with septic arthritis or osteomyelitis should raise the possibility of the presence of protein c deficiency.

2/232. Refractory coronary artery spasm with superimposed thrombosis: successful treatment with Palmaz-Schatz stent.

    Prinzmetal variant angina due to epicardial coronary artery spasm is a disease usually treated with drug therapy with successful results. A case of variant angina, refractory to conventional pharmacological treatment, and complicated by coronary artery thrombosis, was treated with percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty and stenting with good immediate and late clinical results.

3/232. Coronary dissection and thrombosis associated with exercise testing three months after successful coronary stenting.

    exercise testing is commonly performed to assess the functional result of coronary revascularization procedures and is usually not associated with any complications. However, this report documents a rare case of coronary dissection and thrombosis, which resulted in an acute myocardial infarction, in a patient who underwent stress testing 3 months following successful coronary stent implantation.

4/232. Interesting cases from the University of texas Medical Branch.

    This article discusses the cases for four patients with unstable angina. The first case is an example of the "high-risk" patient with widespread ECG changes, heart failure, and enzymatic elevations during an episode of chest pain. The second patient illustrates an unusual cause of unstable angina in a young women. The third patient had a large thrombus visible on angiography and management strategies for dealing with intracoronary thrombus are discussed. The final patient had an extensive past cardiac history with two prior coronary artery bypass operations and we discuss the recent advances made in the treatment of degenerative vein graft disease.

5/232. Collapse and massive pulmonary edema secondary to thrombosis of a mitral mechanical heart valve prosthesis during low-molecular weight heparin therapy.

    Mechanical heart valves (MHV) are particularly exposed to thrombosis if anticoagulation becomes ineffective. Thromboembolic complications may be avoided by oral anticoagulation with vitamin k antagonists or derivatives of unfractionated heparin. A few cases of low-molecular weight heparin (LMWH) as sole anticoagulant in patients with MHV have been published, though with contradictory results. We report a case of a massive thrombosis of a St. Jude Medical mitral valve after the patient had been treated for one month with calcium nadroparin (Fraxiparine).

6/232. An unusual iatrogenic cause of right coronary air embolism.

    A 62-year-old woman undergoing redo mitral valve replacement was noted to have persistent intracardiac air following standard deairing procedures. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) identified air bubbles entering the left atrium from the right superior pulmonary vein. Exploration of the pleural cavity revealed a fistula between the pulmonary parenchyma and the right superior pulmonary vein caused by the atriotomy closure suture transfixing the edge of the lung, which was repaired with immediate disappearance of the air emboli. This demonstrates that transesophageal echocardiography is an invaluable aid to ensuring complete deairing after open heart procedures.

7/232. Surgical management of arteriosclerotic coronary artery aneurysm.

    A 60-year-old man suffered antero-septal myocardial infarction at the age of 56. coronary angiography demonstrated total occlusion of the left anterior descending artery and a large saccular aneurysm of the right coronary artery. Diffuse coronary ectasia was also shown in the right coronary artery adjacent to the aneurysm. Despite anticoagulant therapy, the aneurysm formed a thrombus and developed coronary artery stenosis distal to the aneurysm. ligation of the aneurysm and in situ gastroepiploic artery grafting were performed. Sudden heart failure was developed during skin closure. As this condition was considered to be graft hypoperfusion, supplemental saphenous vein grafting was placed. ligation is a simple, reliable technique to prevent future complications for a large saccular right coronary artery aneurysm, however, gastroepiploic artery might be an inappropriate bypass conduit for the ligated coronary artery with diffuse ectasia.

8/232. Acute thrombotic-ischemic coronary syndromes: the usefulness of TEC.

    Transluminal extraction catheter (TEC) is a percutaneous device that performs simultaneous thrombus aspiration and plaque excision. Clinical indications for its application are acute myocardial infarction, unstable angina, and stable angina caused by atherosclerotic, thrombotic lesions located within native coronary arteries and degenerated saphenous vein grafts. The device is useful in management of ischemic patients with contraindications to either pharmacologic thrombolytics or platelet GPIIb/IIIa receptor inhibitors, and can also effectively be used in combination with these agents. A successful TEC procedure requires careful patient selection, strict adherence to recommended indications, optimal equipment selection, familiarity with mechanical components of the device, full understanding of safe and efficacious techniques for deployment and activation, as well as recognition of unique associated angiographic manifestations such as the "empty-pouch phenomenon." As with other debulking devices, the incidence of restenosis post-TEC appears to be directly related to acute luminal gain at the time of procedure and therefore requires the need for adjunct stenting. This communication describes and illustrates various clinical, technical, and angiographic aspects of TEC procedure in patients with acute ischemic-thrombotic coronary syndromes. Cathet. Cardiovasc.

9/232. Homozygous factor-V mutation as a genetic cause of perinatal thrombosis and cerebral palsy.

    A 5-year old girl with cerebral palsy (CP), preterm birth, postnatal aortic thrombus, and cerebellar venous infarction who is homozygous for the thrombophilic factor-V Leiden (fVL) mutation is reported. The role of hereditary thrombophilic disorders in the development of perinatal vascular lesions such as aortic thrombi, renal-vein thrombosis, venous-sinus thrombosis, and cerebral infarction is unknown. This case report brings into question a potential association between fVL, perinatal vascular lesions, perinatal stroke, and CP.

10/232. Intermittent left coronary occlusion caused by native aortic valve thrombosis in a patient with protein s deficiency.

    A 77-year-old woman presented with chest pain and cardiogenic shock. Transesophageal echocardiography showed a mobile mass occluding intermittently the left coronary ostium. The mass was surgically resected, and histologic examination revealed an organized thrombus. Coagulation study demonstrated a protein s deficiency. This is the first case of aortic thrombosis associated with protein s deficiency, and it is the first time that transesophageal echocardiography provided definite evidence that a mass can cause intermittent left ostium coronary obstruction.
