A giant left atrial myxoma

Zaher, Medhat F; Bajaj, Sharad; Habib, Mirette; Doss, Emile; Habib, Michael; Bikkina, Mahesh; Shamoon, Fayez; Hoyek, Wissam N
Atrial myxomas are the most common primary cardiac tumors. Patients with left atrial myxomas generally present with mechanical obstruction of blood flow, systemic embolization, and constitutional symptoms. We present a case of an unusually large left atrial myxoma discovered incidentally in a patient with longstanding dyspnea being managed as bronchial asthma.

A rare case of double-chambered right ventricle associated with ventricular septal defect and congenital absence of the pulmonary valve

Khoueiry, Georges; Bhat, Tariq; Tantray, Mohmad; Meghani, Mustafain; Abi Rafeh, Nidal; Abdallah, Mokhtar; Hoyek, Wissam
Double-chambered right ventricle (DCRV) is a rare congenital heart disorder involving 2 different right ventricle (RV) pressure compartments that is often associated with ventricular septal defect (VSD). Usually, the obstruction is caused by an anomalous muscle bundle crossing the RV from the interventricular septum to the RV free wall. We are reporting a case of double-chambered right ventricle associated with ventricular septal defect and congenital absence of the pulmonary valve, a rare form of congenital infundibular pulmonary stenosis. In addition to ventricular septal defect, our patient had congenital absence of the pulmonary valve, which is very unusual and has never been reported to our knowledge.
