Isolated single coronary artery (SCA) is a rare anomaly. Current classification of left and right is further classified based on the course of the anomalous vessel. We report two SCA L cases where right coronary artery (RCA) arose from mid-left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD). Our observation is a variation from the current Lipton classification SCA L Type II where RCA arose from left coronary artery before the LAD, in our cases the RCA arose from mid LAD after the first septal perfora...

Saphenous vein graft (SVG) aneurysms are rare and late complications of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). We present a case using transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE) with color Doppler and left-heart opacification contrast agent (Optison) to visualize the flow and lumen of the graft. A 74-

Takayasu arteritis (TA) is rare cause of angina and coronary artery disease (CAD). 45 year-old female with hypertension, stroke 17 years ago and NSTEMI in the past presented with weight loss, hand numbness and angina for 2 months worse since a week. Her cardiac enzymes were elevated that prompted

Abstract Objectives Noninvasive technology may assist the emergency department (ED) physician in determining the hemodynamic status in critically ill patients. The objective of our study was to show that ED physicians can accurately measure cardiac index (CI) by performing a bedside focused cardiac ultrasound examination. Methods A convenience sample of adult subjects were prospectively enrolled. Cardiac index, left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) diameter, velocity time integral (VTI), stroke ...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: The mitral annulus (MA) has a complex dynamic geometry that is difficult to visualize in two dimensions; hence, novel real-time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (RT-3D-TEE) provides insights into its dynamic nature. The study aim was to investigate changes in MA geometry in normal subjects and to explore differences in patients with myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD), using 3D quantitation with RT-3D-TEE. METHODS: Thirty-five participants (1...

We report a case of a 63-year-old woman who presented with infective endocarditis and developed a pseudoaneurysm (PA) of the left ventricle presumably as a result of an embolic infarct. The diagnosis was made by typical features of PA on tranesophageal echocardiography and color Doppler studies. In addition, three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography showed the narrow neck of the PA. Findings were confirmed at surgery and she was discharged after successful repair. (Echocardiography 2011...

Balloon atrial septostomy is ordinarily a safe palliative procedure for cyanotic congenital heart disease; however, if echocardiographic guidance is unavailable and fluoroscopy is used, distortions in the cardiac anatomy can invalidate the usual landmarks. Herein, we report iatrogenic mitral papillary muscle rupture during balloon atrial septostomy in a 4-day-old male neonate with total anomalous connection of the pulmonary veins. The anomalous connection and severe mitral regurgitation were eme...
