Echocardiography in Adult Congenital Heart Disease by Wei Li, Michael Henein, Michael A. Gatzoulis

By Wei Li, Michael Henein, Michael A. Gatzoulis

This publication offers cardiologists with entry to the wealth of imaging from the Royal Brompton health facility and nationwide center and Lung Institute in London to let them to enhance all alone abilities and refine their imaging strategy. The authors correlate this echocardiography event with the pathological and surgical features of congenital middle defects. They comprise a overview of the pathologic, physiologic and surgical observations of alternative congenital ailments to aid in knowing some of the echocardiographic shows. The publication includes huge numbers of echocardiographic photos.

Note the optimum repair and the valve competence postoperatively. 5. Partial Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connections Partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection is defined as the connection of one or more pulmonary veins to a site other than the morphological left atrium. It can occur as an isolated anomaly or in association with other intracardiac malformations. Here, we mainly discuss the anomalous connection in the setting of usual atrial arrangement. The connection can be described as totally or partially anomalous and unilateral or bilateral.

While the expected life of a mechanical valve is over 15 years, that of a bioprosthesis is in the order of 10 years. For young patients with isolated aortic valve disease, a homograft or autograft (patient’s own pulmonary valve transferred to the aortic position, Ross Procedure) has proved ideal. In particular, the autograft has the advantage of growing with the patient. 7). Recently, percutaneous aortic valve replacement has emerged as a new non-surgical treatment of aortic valve disease. 6. Left ventricular M-mode recording from a patient with significant bicuspid aortic valve stenosis showing left ventricular hypertrophy and dysfunction.

A) Apical four chamber view showing a small apical muscular ventricular septal defect with left-to-right shunt on color flow and (B) continuous wave Doppler. 20 1. 26. Parasternal views from a patient with a small ventricular septal defect showing dilated left ventricle on two-dimensional and M-mode images. Note the significant impairment of left ventricular systolic function, estimated fractional shortening of 20%. This patient’s main complaint was syncope. the ventricular septal defect may become progressively smaller in size while aortic regurgitation worsens in severity.
