Preservation of Antegrade Pulmonary Blood Flow in Kawashima Procedure With Prior Right Ventricular Outflow Tract Stent

Bhansali, Suneet; Bhatla, Puneet; Argilla, Michael; Saharan, Sunil; Mosca, Ralph; Kumar, Tk Susheel
Surgical management of single ventricle with interrupted inferior vena cava and azygos continuation typically requires a Kawashima procedure with subsequent completion of Fontan. However, this group is at risk of development of pulmonary arteriovenous malformations. Evidence suggests preservation of hepatic venous flow into the pulmonary circulation can potentially delay this development. We hereby describe a method of preserving antegrade pulmonary blood flow during the Kawashima procedure in the setting of prior right ventricular outflow tract stents.

Periscopic technique in Norwood operation is associated with better preservation of early ventricular function

Bhatla, Puneet; Kumar, Tk Susheel; Makadia, Luv; Winston, Brandon; Bull, Catherine; Nielsen, James C; Williams, David; Chakravarti, Sujata; Ohye, Richard G; Mosca, Ralph S
Objective/UNASSIGNED:Although the right ventricle (RV) to pulmonary artery conduit in stage 1 Norwood operation results in improved interstage survival, the long-term effects of the ventriculotomy used in the traditional technique remain a concern. The periscopic technique (PT) of RV to pulmonary artery conduit placement has been described as an alternative technique to minimize RV injury. A retrospective study was performed to compare the effects of traditional technique and PT on ventricular function following Norwood operation. Methods/UNASSIGNED:A retrospective study of all patients who underwent Norwood operation from 2012 to 2019 was performed. Patients with baseline RV dysfunction and significant tricuspid valve regurgitation were excluded. Prestage 2 echocardiograms were reviewed by a blinded experienced imager for quantification of RV function (sinus and infundibular RV fractional area change) as well as for regional conduit site wall dysfunction (normal or abnormal, including hypokinesia, akinesia, or dyskinesia). Wilcoxon rank-sum tests were used to assess differences in RV infundibular and RV sinus ejection fraction and the Fisher exact test was used to assess differences in regional wall dysfunction. Results/UNASSIGNED: = .002). Conclusions/UNASSIGNED:The PT for RV to pulmonary artery conduit in Norwood operation results in better preservation of early RV global and regional systolic function. Whether or not this benefit translates to improved clinical outcome still needs to be studied.

Surgical Management of Giant Intrapericardial Teratoma Encasing the Coronary Artery

Minocha, Prashant; Hodzic, Emina; Sharma, Madhu; Bhatla, Puneet; Nielsen, James; Ramirez, Michelle; Magid, Margret; Fisher, Jason C; Mosca, Ralph; Kumar, Tk Susheel
Intrapericardial teratomas are rare, predominantly benign tumors that warrant surgical resection in the neonatal period because of their potential detrimental effects on the cardiorespiratory system. Surgical resection can be a challenge when the tumor encases and obscures a coronary artery. Adherence to certain operative principles is necessary to achieve successful outcomes.

Inferior Right Ventricular Wall Thickness by Echocardiogram: A Novel Method of Assessing Hypertrophy in Neonates and Infants

Pravder, Harrison D; Hodzic, Emina; Bhatla, Puneet; Busovsky-McNeal, Melissa; Nielsen, James C
An established echocardiographic (echo) standard for assessing the newborn right ventricle (RV) for hypertrophy has not been thoroughly developed. This is partially due to the RV's complex architecture, which makes quantification of RV mass by echo difficult. Here, we retrospectively evaluate the thickness of the inferior RV wall (iRVWT) by echo in neonates and infants with normal cardiopulmonary physiology. Inferior RVWT was defined at the medial portion of the inferior wall of the RV at the mid-ventricular level, collected from a subxiphoid, short axis view. iRVWT was indexed to body surface area (BSA) to the 0.5 power and normalized to iLVWT to explore the best normalization method. Ninety-eight neonates and 32 infants were included in the final analysis. Mean age for neonates and infants was 2 days and 59 days, respectively. Mean ± SD for neonate and infant end-diastole iRVWT was 2.17 ± 0.35 mm and 1.79 ± 0.28 mm, respectively. There was no residual relationship between the index iRVWT and BSA (r = 0.03, p = NS). In the infant cohort, the iRVWT was significantly lower and iLVWT was significantly higher compared to neonate, consistent with known physiologic changes of RV and LV mass. Thus, iRVWT may serve as a reliable and accurate proxy for RV mass and the parameter warrants further evaluation.

Diagnosis of anomalous origin of the right subclavian artery from the right pulmonary artery in a patient with D-transposition of the great arteries utilizing transthoracic echocardiography

Makadia, Luv D; Nielsen, James C; Kumar, Thittamaranahalli Kumar Susheel; Bhatla, Puneet
Diagnosis of anomalous origin of the right subclavian artery (AORSA) from the right pulmonary artery (RPA) is usually made using CT, MRI, or invasive angiography. We report a patient diagnosed using transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). A newborn girl prenatally known to have d-TGA presented with cyanosis sparing the right hemithorax and arm. Oxygen saturations on the right hand were persistently higher than on the right ear and other extremities. Repeat TTE using a modified echocardiographic imaging plane allowed for full visualization of the entire subclavian artery course, revealing AORSA from RPA. We discuss further the approach to echocardiographic diagnosis and surgical implications.

Unusual Cause of Severe Tricuspid Regurgitation: Tricuspid Leaflet Annular Tear Following Remote Motor Vehicle Accident [Case Report]

Bamira, Daniel G; Dwivedi, Aeshita; Bhatla, Puneet; Halpern, Dan; Vainrib, Alan F; Kim, Eugene; Zias, Elias; Saric, Muhamed
Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is an uncommon and underdiagnosed complication of blunt chest trauma. Typical mechanisms include torn chordae, papillary muscle rupture, and radial leaflet tear. We describe an unusual case of traumatic TR due to circumferential avulsion of the anterior tricuspid leaflet from the tricuspid annulus and the crucial role of multimodality imaging in its diagnosis and treatment. (Level of Difficulty: Intermediate.).

Cardiac involvement in a pediatric patient with COVID-19: Looking beyond the nonspecific global cardiac injury

Bhansali, Suneet; Minocha, Prashant; Phoon, Colin; Henry, Gillian; Chakravarti, Sujata; Ramirez, Michelle; Bhatla, Puneet
We report a case of a 17-year-old healthy male presenting with multisystem hyperinflammatory shock temporally associated with COVID-19. Cardiac involvement was suspected based on evidence of significant cardiac injury (elevated cardiac biomarkers, electrocardiographic and echocardiographic abnormalities). Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging was performed demonstrating global biventricular systolic dysfunction, as well as a small area of T2 hyperintensity and mid-wall late gadolinium enhancement. This case discusses the varied cardiac involvement in pediatric patients with COVID-19 infection and highlights that cardiac injury is not just limited to hyperinflammatory syndrome related global dysfunction but a more focal myocarditis can also be seen.
