was assessed by transthoracic echocardiography before operation, at postoperative week 1, at postoperative first month and third month follow-up.
Clinical and echocardiographic factors associated with in-hospital mortality in patients with infective endocarditis affecting the native tricuspid valve
. Am J Cardiol 2016;118(5):739-743.
We theorize that our patient's infection started as a skin and soft tissue infection due to MSSA in the left antecubital fossa with subsequent bacteremia and seeding of his tricuspid valve
, followed by embolic phenomenon to his lungs which led to a parapneumonic effusion and ultimately direct extension through the chest wall to the pectoralis muscle, as seen in Figure 1.
In summary, we report a neonate with severe NS phenotypes including myeloproliferative disorder, transient thrombocytopenia, a secundum atrial septal defect, moderate perimembranous ventricular septal defect, dysplastic mitral and tricuspid valves
, bicuspid aortic valve and mild hypoplastic aortic arch, pylorospasm, splenic cyst, and a horseshoe kidney.
Its mechanism has been studied on the asphyxiated lambs.18 Patent arterial duct especially those with moderate to large size could be an additional factor to cause cardiac dysfunction and pulmonary hypertension as shown in our study.16,17,19 Tricuspid valve
regurgitation was another prominent finding after birth asphyxia which was also reported in other studies.4 It was principally related to right ventricular or pulmonary hypertension and diastolic dysfunction (P<0.01).
In few patients chordal connections of the tricuspid valve
cloud the edges of the deformity.
Mixed valvular disease was most prevalent in the mitral valve (MV) in 314 (23.33%), followed by aortic (40 [2.99%]), and tricuspid valves
Merely 10% of the patients with CCTGA do not have any associated anomalies like ventricular septal defect, pulmonary artery stenosis, tricuspid valve
abnormalities, and mitral valve abnormalities .
Two days later, the patient underwent a complex surgical repair with closure of the fistula, mitral, tricuspid valve
repair, aortic replacement, and root enlargement.
The mass was noted to have systolic pulsation with a waveform consistent with large, regurgitant V-waves from tricuspid valve
The acquisition will give Edwards access to the CardiobandTM Reconstruction System for transcatheter repair of the mitral valve and tricuspid valve
of the heart.
