Lutembacher syndrome is characterized by a congenital ostium secundum atrial septal defect
and an acquired mitral valve stenosis.
HYDERABAD -- Atrial Septal Defect
(ASD), a congenital child heart disorder, is an opening in the atrial septum and the opening in the atrial septum allows the blood from either side to mix, decreasing the efficiency of the heart's function.
Transcatheter closure of large secundum atrial septal defects
using the 40 mm amplatzer septal occluder: results of an international registry.
atrial septal defect
, ventricular septal defect and other complex lesions who were planned to undergo cardiac catheterization were excluded from analysis.
Atrial Septal Defect
(ASD) is defined as any opening in interatrial septum other than a competent foramen ovale.
Some original studies have reported increased risks of atrial septal defects
(Gilboa et al.
Three years before admission the patient underwent surgical repair of atrial septal defect
(ASD) by pericardial patch closure of ASD.
KEY WORDS: Partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC), Superior vena cava (SVC), Atrial septal defect
(ASD), Intra cardiac baffle.
In most suitable small defects percutaneous approach is straight forward but the large atrial septal defects
are difficult to manage with this approach5.
Cardiac dysrhythmias in pediatric patients before and 1 year after transcatheter closure of atrial septal defects
using the amplatzer septal occluder.
Interatrial septal communications such as atrial septal defects
(ASDs) can lead to pulmonary hypertension, rightsided heart failure, or atrial arrhythmias; patent foramen ovale (PFO), in particular, has been implicated as a source of paradoxical embolism and cryptogenic strokes in young adults (l).
The majority of patients had atrial septal defects
The aim of our study was to investigate the anesthetic management of percutaneous closure of atrial septal defects
Atrial septal defects
and VSDs are among the most common cardiac defects, and VSDs are, overall, one of the most common birth defects.
Anatomically, atrial septal defects
are classified into three main categories: ostium secundum, ostium primum, and sinus venosus defects.
