Repeated successful surgical rescues of early and delayed multiple ruptures of ventricular septum
, right ventricle and aneurysmal left ventricle following massive biventricular infarction.
According to the British Heart Foundation, pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum
is an abnormality of the heart that develops in the womb.
The good uptake of thallium-201 on the initial images in our case suggests that severe damage was unlikely in the ventricular septum
. Such small damage can also be undetectable on cardiac magnetic resonance, although the radiation-free technique is reported to be useful in the diagnosis of isolated septal myocardial infarction.
Immediate effects and outcome of in-utero pulmonary valvuloplasty in fetuses with pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum
or critical pulmonary stenosis.
Determinants of successful balloon valvotomy in infants with critical pulmonary stenosis or membernous pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum
. J Am Coll Cardiol 1995; 25(2): 460-5.
Caption: Figure 1: Echocardiogram (a) shows an evident pedunculated mass, attached to the base of the anterior leaflet of the tricuspid valve and right ventricular septum
extending into the right ventricular outflow tract.
Membranous valve-like structure (large arrow) on the ventricular septum
, aortic wall (asterisk), and the right coronary artery cusp (RCA cusp) of the aortic valve.
Differential diagnosis includes sinus of Valsalva aneurysm, muscular ventricular septum
aneurysm, membranous ventricular septal defect.
(1) The echo-Doppler study of her heart on this admission showed a markedly enlarged right atrium and right ventricle with a flat ventricular septum
and a pulmonary arterial systolic pressure of 52 mmHg.
Infundibular pulmonic stenosis with intact ventricular septum
: a report of 15 surgically corrected patients.
2013), and eight noncritical defects (endocardial cushion; ventricular septum
; atrial septum; valves; aorta; pulmonary artery; heterotaxy; other).
The reason behind this is probably the modification in position of ventricular septum
that induces a septal shift and failure of tricuspid valve coaptation .
