George, Paul V. George, John Jose, Viji Samuel Thomson

Journal of the Saudi Heart Association

Objectives: This retrospective study sought to determine the feasibility of transcatheter atrial septal defect device closure in patients less than 15 kg, as well as to assess complication rates and the reasons for unsuccessful device closure.

Background: In general, the risks associated with transcatheter atrial septal defect device closure are believed and reported to be relatively low, but the evidence stems from trials involving adults and older children. Current guidelines do not recommend atrial defect closure in device closure in children < 15kg, due to limited data available for feasibility and safety of device closure in this group of patients.

Methods: Retrospective review of all patients who underwent elective transcatheter closure of ostium secundum atrial septal defect between September …


Management Of Cryptogenic Stroke Secondary To Large Asd With Percutaneous Occluder Device And Antiplatelet Drugs., Riya Gupta, Naveed Iqbal Jan 2024

Management Of Cryptogenic Stroke Secondary To Large Asd With Percutaneous Occluder Device And Antiplatelet Drugs., Riya Gupta, Naveed Iqbal

Marshall Journal of Medicine

Atrial septal defects (ASD) represent the most common congenital heart disease diagnosed in adult population and can present with variable clinical findings. Recent literature emphasizes the importance of management of ASD especially if it is associated with structural right heart changes such as RV dysfunction, right ventricular enlargement, arrythmias or paradoxical embolism.

The decision between medical therapy versus surgical closure of ASD is a common clinical conundrum especially in the setting of cryptogenic stroke.


Standard Median Sternotomy Versus Minimally Invasive Approach For Atrial Septal Defect Closure In Adults, Ahmed S. Ali, Ahmed G. Abd El Fattah Fahmy, Hatem K. Madkour, Reham M. Salah Eldin Ahmed Jan 2023

Standard Median Sternotomy Versus Minimally Invasive Approach For Atrial Septal Defect Closure In Adults, Ahmed S. Ali, Ahmed G. Abd El Fattah Fahmy, Hatem K. Madkour, Reham M. Salah Eldin Ahmed

Journal of Medicine in Scientific Research

Background

Atrial septal defects (ASDs) in adults and adolescents are not uncommon. Surgical ASD closure through a standard median sternotomy (SMS) has become less attractive approach in favor of minimally invasive techniques, especially in young female patients.

Objective

The aim was to compare early postoperative outcomes of surgically closed secundum ASDs through a SMS approach versus minimally invasive right anterolateral thoracotomy (MIRAT) approach in adults.

Patients and methods

The authors prospectively studied 60 adult patients who had their secundum ASD anomalies surgically closed at National Heart Institute between the period of September 2020 and February 2022. A total of 30 …


Factors Determining Occurrence Of Arrhythmias In Patients Post-Closure Of Atrial Septal Defects, Nouran Mostafa Mansour, Raghda Ghonimy El Sheikh, Ayman Mohamed Elsaeid, Mohammed El Sayed El-Setiha, Seham Fahmy Badr Aug 2021

Factors Determining Occurrence Of Arrhythmias In Patients Post-Closure Of Atrial Septal Defects, Nouran Mostafa Mansour, Raghda Ghonimy El Sheikh, Ayman Mohamed Elsaeid, Mohammed El Sayed El-Setiha, Seham Fahmy Badr

Journal of the Saudi Heart Association

Objectives: This study aimed to determine the risk factors for the occurrence of arrhythmias after either transcatheter or surgical closure of atrial septal defect. Methods: This prospective study included 150 patients admitted for transcatheter or surgical closure of atrial septal defect. Transthoracic echocardiography together with a twelve-leads ECG were done during 1 and 3 months follow up. The paired T, chi-square and Logistic regression tests were used to detect any association between any arrhythmias and factors that may affect its occurrence. Results: One-hundred and twenty-three patients had percutaneous device closure while the remaining 27 patients had surgical closure. The youngest …


The Effect Of Percutaneous Closure Of Large Atrial Septal Defects On Right Ventricular Function In Adults, Armaan Shaikh, Alejandro Lopez-Mas, Suhail Allaqaband, Bijoy K. Khandheria, Abraham Getenet, Matt M. Umland, Maharaj Singh, Tanvir Bajwa Nov 2015

The Effect Of Percutaneous Closure Of Large Atrial Septal Defects On Right Ventricular Function In Adults, Armaan Shaikh, Alejandro Lopez-Mas, Suhail Allaqaband, Bijoy K. Khandheria, Abraham Getenet, Matt M. Umland, Maharaj Singh, Tanvir Bajwa

Journal of Patient-Centered Research and Reviews

Background: Percutaneous closure of atrial septal defects has been shown to be a safe alternative to surgery. Despite this, past studies have largely been focused on either small- to medium-sized atrial septal defects or percutaneous closure in children and young adults.

Purpose: Our study sought to examine if right ventricular function and size improved after percutaneous closure of large atrial septal defects in the adult population.

Methods: Over a 5-year span, 25 patients underwent percutaneous closure of a secundum atrial septal defect with an occluder device. A retrospective examination was conducted for each patient, including both echocardiography and chart review …


Congenital Secundum Atrial Septal Defect And Membranous Ventricular Septal Defect In A Newborn Holstein-Friesian Calf, Ayşe Haligür, Mehmet Haligür, Özlem Özmen Jan 2011

Congenital Secundum Atrial Septal Defect And Membranous Ventricular Septal Defect In A Newborn Holstein-Friesian Calf, Ayşe Haligür, Mehmet Haligür, Özlem Özmen

Turkish Journal of Veterinary & Animal Sciences

Congenital secundum atrial septal defect (ASD) and membranous ventricular septal defect (VSD) were diagnosed in a 1-day-old Holstein-Friesian calf necropsied in the Department of Pathology of Mehmet Akif Ersoy University. The secundum atrial septal defect was 32.9 × 23.1 mm in width and was elliptical. The membranous ventricular septal defect was 25.3 × 18.5 mm in width and was round to oval in shape. Both atrial and ventricular septal defects were stained with hematoxylin-eosin and Van Gieson's stain. Histopathological examination showed that the defects mainly consisted of numerous muscle cells and, in some areas, dense fibrous connective tissue.
