Further, we review a diagnostic approach and provide insight into the embryonic basis of this anomaly. Even less common, but more serious, presentations are and due to blockage of a by the aneurysm. Whenever a child is diagnosed with unroofed coronary sinus syndrome, we recommend surgery to correct the defect. Associated congenital cardiovascular abnormalities have been reported in the literature in 5—30% of cases. Zhonghua Yi Xue Za Zhi Taipei 65: 320-325. It results when the left superior cardinal vein caudal to the innominate vein fails to regress.

Persistent left superior vena cava: a case report and review of literature

dilated coronary sinus

An abnormal catheter position on chest x-ray, which runs to the left of the mediastinum has a limited differential see: 5. Agitated saline contrast injected into the left arm will opacify the coronary sinus before the right atrium. The cardio-respiratory physical examination was normal except for a mild diastolic murmur at the lower left sternal border. The name comes from the Latin corona, meaning crown, since this vessel forms a partial circle around the heart. Conclusion For the above mentioned reasons this case-study review provides another contribution to the knowledge of this congenital anomaly and supports the importance of echocardiography in the diagnostic setting of sports cardiology medicine. Here the author describes the incidental discovery of a dilated coronary sinus due to persistent left superior vena cava in a healthy 46-year-old male athlete during sports pre-participation screening, and discusses the importance and usefulness of the combination of non-invasive cardiovascular examinations to make an optimal diagnosis and illustration of congenital cardiovascular anomalies. It is a rare congenital anomaly with a reported incidence of 0.

Intraoperative view: a tortuous right coronary artery black arrow. It is also accompanied by a superficial thrill. The cephalic portion of superior cardinal veins form the internal jugular veins. Therefore the evidence of a dilated coronary sinus must always be investigated in search of a congenital malformation and especially the persistence of a left superior vena cava.

The surgical approach to the heart was achieved via a bilateral submammary skin incision and median sternotomy. Roberts D, Bellamy C, Ramsdale D: Implantation of a dual chamber pacemaker in a patient with persistent left superior vena cava. This defect descriptively called as unroofed coronary sinus. In addition, cardiac resynchronization therapy for advanced chronic heart failure requires the placement of third pacing lead in left posterolateral vein of the heart.

Rupture of a sinus of Valsalva can occur at any age.

Tortuous right coronary artery to coronary sinus fistula

The patient underwent surgical closure of the fistula and division of the communication between the right coronary artery and the coronary sinus with the use of cardiopulmonary bypass. Persistent left superior vena cava is rare but important congenital vascular anomaly. Case report A 46-year-old male athlete was referred to our sports center for pre-participation screening. Injecting contrast into the right arm would opacify the right atrium only. As, the diagnosis was well established on an echocardiogram showing catheter traversing the coronary sinus, a saline contrast echocardiography was deemed unnecessary and was not performed. Pacing Clin Electrophysiol 28: 1245-1246.

At the same time, we close any associated atrial septal defect with a patch. It has no pathological sequelae. A ruptured Sinus of Valsalva abscess represents a surgical emergency. In such cases essentially all the radiotracer will appear in the systemic circulation rather than the normal 2% which cross the lung due to intrapulmonary shunts 3. Corrected D-transposition by arterial switch Jatene. The aesthetic result was very gratifying. Abstract We are reporting the successful surgical treatment of a 23-year-old female with a giant right coronary artery to coronary sinus fistula.

Apparent inter-atrial shunt or significant valvular disease was not detected. Its importance stems from venous procedures, such as line placement or pacemaker implantation where failure to recognize this variant can result in incorrect positioning 4. Surgeons have a greater role in recognising and treating this entity. Conventional angiography is the golden standard of diagnosing this abnormality. The postoperative course was uneventful and the patient was discharged home in an excellent condition on postoperative day 5. How do you classify unroofed coronary sinus?
