21/619. cyanosis due to diastolic right-to-left shunting across a ventricular septal defect in a patient with repaired tetralogy of fallot and pulmonary atresia.

    cyanosis as a result of right-to-left shunting across a ventricular septal defect is commonly encountered in patients with congenital heart disease when systolic pressure in the right ventricle exceeds that in the left ventricle. Reported is the case of a child who remained cyanosed after surgical correction of pulmonary atresia despite right ventricular systolic pressure being lower than left ventricular pressure. Colour-flow Doppler showed a residual ventricular septal defect, with right-to-left shunting in diastole alone. ( info)

22/619. Pathologic finding of restenosis in stent-implemented right ventricle-pulmonary artery extracardiac conduit.

    We describe an excised specimen of a stent-implanted valved equine pericardial extracardiac conduit in the right heart. It appears from careful pathologic examination that the stent acted as a nidus for thrombus formation followed by thick neo-intimal development over the stent, which caused restenosis. Restenosis occurred despite anticoagulation. ( info)

23/619. Familial deletion of 22q11.2.

    We present a mother and her son, both carrying a deletion of chromosome 22q.11.2. They manifest clinical heterogeneity. The mother has schizophrenia, an IQ of 70. tetralogy of fallot, a hypernasal voice, but does not have the characteristic facies. Her son has mild psychomotor developmental delay. tetralogy of fallot and mild facial features characteristic of VCFS. ( info)

24/619. Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery in tetralogy of fallot associated with abnormal mitral valve pathology.

    The association of anomalous left coronary artery with congenital heart disease is a rare occurrence. Seven cases of anomalous left coronary artery associated with tetralogy of fallot have been reported in the literature. We report a unique case with severe mitral valve abnormality that precluded standard surgical repair. ( info)

25/619. Two sisters with Toriello-Carey syndrome.

    Toriello-Carey syndrome comprises agenesis of the corpus callosum, telecanthus, short palpebral fissures, small nose with anteverted nares, Robin sequence, abnormally shaped ears, cardiac defect, and hypotonia. We describe two Japanese sisters with a Toriello-Carey syndrome whose phenotypes were as severe as reported male cases. The younger sister died suddenly at age 4 months. Our patients with a severe phenotype and possible parental consanguinity suggest autosomal recessive inheritance of Toriello-Carey syndrome. ( info)

26/619. Enzymatic dissolution of post-operative haemothorax by purified streptokinase.

    Enzymatic dissolution of haemothorax is highly effective in the evacuation of proteinaceous material from the pleural space. Its use in postcardiotomy haemothorax has not been described. We report the case of a 4-year-old girl with Fallot's Tetralogy diagnosed at birth. She underwent a total correction of Fallot's Tetralogy at 4 years of age. Chest X-ray taken post-operatively showed a large pleural collection in her right haemithorax. Repeated intraplueral infusion of purified streptokinase into the right upper pleural chest tube greatly reduced the extent of the right haemothorax. Enzymatic dissolution of haemothorax by purified streptokinase has proven to be a rapid and successful method of therapy. It has provided an alternative which is less invasive and has a low morbidity. ( info)

27/619. Wire-snare technique with distal flow control for coil occlusion of a modified Blalock-Taussig shunt.

    Coil occlusion of Blalock-Taussig shunts has been associated with a high rate of device embolization. We describe a technique consisting of transvenous snaring and exteriorization of a guidewire advanced through a modified left Blalock-Taussig shunt, allowing distal shunt flow control and successful coil occlusion of the shunt. Cathet. Cardiovasc. Intervent. 49:51-54, 2000. ( info)

28/619. Retained intrathoracic surgical swab: CT appearances.

    A retained surgical swab (gossypiboma) is a rare but important complication of intrathoracic surgery. The radiographic and computed tomography (CT) appearances are variable and depend on the chronicity and site of the swab within the chest. Two cases of retained swabs within the chest are reported. In both cases, the swab had become surrounded by lung. The swab within the pleural space acted as a nidus and resulted in infolding of the lung, superficially resembling an intrapulmonary abscess on CT. ( info)

29/619. Early onset of progressive subaortic stenosis after complete repair of tetralogy of Fallot.

    tetralogy of fallot is often found in association with a wide variety of other cardiac lesions, but is rarely found in association with lesions causing obstruction to the left ventricular inflow or outflow. Subaortic stenosis has only rarely been reported in association with tetralogy of fallot. We report a patient with marfan syndrome who underwent repair of tetralogy of fallot at five years of age. Discrete and progressive subaortic stenosis developed two years after the surgical correction, in a previously normal and unobstructed left ventricular outflow tract. Surgical removal of the acquired fibrous subaortic shelf was successful. Clinical signs of obstruction within the left ventricular outflow tract after surgical repair of tetralogy of fallot should prompt further investigation to exclude the onset of acquired subaortic stenosis. ( info)

30/619. tetralogy of fallot associated with scimitar syndrome.

    We present a case of tetralogy of fallot associated with scimitar syndrome. The patient was an 11-month old female who underwent successfully total repair of her lesion, including rerouting of the anomalous pulmonary vein to the left atrium. The diagnosis was suspected from the chest x-ray and echocardiography, and confirmed by angiography. To the best of our knowledge only 2 additional cases have previously been reported. ( info)
