    Indentation in the Right Ventricle by an Incomplete Pericardium on 3-Dimensional Reconstructed Computed Tomography

    We report the case of a 17-year-old girl who presented with an indentation in the right ventricle caused by an incomplete pericardium on preoperative 3-dimensional reconstructed computed tomography. She was to undergo surgery for a partial atrioventricular septal defect and secundum atrial septal defect. Preoperative electrocardiography revealed occasional premature ventricular beats. We found the absence of the left side of the pericardium intraoperatively, and this absence caused strangulat ...

    Extra-Anatomic Ascending Aorta to Abdominal Aorta Bypass in Takayasu Arteritis Patients with Mid-Aortic Syndrome

    Background

    We evaluated the operative outcomes of an extra-anatomic bypass from the ascending aorta to the abdominal aorta in patients with type II or III Takayasu arteritis (TA) with mid-aortic syndrome.

    Methods

    From 1988 to 2014, 8 patients with type II (n=2) or III (n=6) TA underwent an ascending aorta to abdominal aorta bypass. The mean patient age was 43.5±12.2 years and the mean peak pressure gradient between the upper and lower extremit ...

    Surgical Management of a Coronary-Bronchial Artery Fistula Combined with Myocardial Ischemia Revealed by 13N-Ammonia Positron Emission Tomography

    A 71-year-old male with known bronchiectasis and atrial fibrillation was admitted to Seoul St. Mary’s Hospital with recurrent transient ischemic attack. Radiofrequency ablation was performed to resolve the patient’s atrial fibrillation, but failed. However, a fistula between the left circumflex artery and the bilateral bronchial arteries was found on computed tomography. Fistula ligation and a left-side maze operation were planned due to his recurrent symptom of dizziness, and the ...

    Fontan Revision with Y-Graft in a Patient with Unilateral Pulmonary Arteriovenous Malformation

    The extracardiac conduit Fontan procedure is the last surgical step in the treatment of patients with a functional single ventricle. An acquired pulmonary arteriovenous malformation may appear perioperatively or postoperatively due to an uneven hepatic flow distribution. Here we report a case of a bifurcated Y-graft Fontan operation in a 15-year-old male patient with a unilateral pulmonary arteriovenous malformation after an extracardiac conduit Fontan operation.
