      Systolic Anterior Motion of the Mitral Valve in the Absence Left Ventricular Hypertrophy: Role of Mitral Leaflet Elongation and Papillary Muscle Displacement (pages E36–E38)

      Cemil Izgi, Taylan Akgun, Ebubekir Emre Men and Hasan Feray

      Article first published online: 25 MAR 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2009.01108.x

      We report a 15-year-old patient who presented with exercise dyspnea and limitation of physical activity. Echocardiography revealed signifi cant left ventricular outfl ow tract obstruction caused by systolic anterior motion (SAM) of the mitral valve. The wall thickness of the left ventricle was within normal limits. Elongation of the mitral leafl ets and anterior displacement of the posteromedial papillary muscle were apparent in the echocardiographic examination. The present case validates that such intrinsic abnormalities of the mitral valve can cause signifi cant SAM even in the absence of left ventricular hypertrophy.

    4. Acinetobacter Endocarditis Presenting as a Large Right Atrial Mass: An Atypical Presentation (pages E39–E42)

      Sherrita Bhagan-Bruno, Navneet Lather and Icilma V. Fergus

      Article first published online: 19 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2009.01127.x

      This paper discusses a very rare case of a 26 year old woman with end stage renal disease on hemodialysis and Acinetobacter calcoaceticus-baumannii complex endocarditis. The patient had an indwelling right internal jugular catheter which was probably the nidus of infection. Transthoracic echocardiogram revealed an atypical presentation of the endocarditis as a large intracardiac mass, measuring ∼3 centimeters which was attached to the lateral wall of the right atrium without valvular involvement. The patient was treated with prompt removal of the indwelling catheter, intravenous antibiotics and surgical resection of the mass with an uneventful recovery.

      Bilobed Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysm Demonstrated on Contrast Echocardiogram (page E43)

      Kartik Murugiah and Jay S. Meisner

      Article first published online: 19 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2009.01134.x

      A 26-year-old female presented with breathlessness and chest pain. She was found to have a 3/6 holosystolic murmur. A transesophageal echocardiogram showed mild aortic insuffi ciency with two regurgitant jets, one central and one eccentric, arising from incomplete coaptation of the right and noncoronary cusps, consistent with a rupture of a noncoronary sinus aneurysm into the right atrium. What is unique is the bilobed appearance of the aneurysm.

    4. Cervical Aortic Arch: Echocardiographic and Three-Dimensional Computed Tomography View (pages E44–E45)

      Salvatore Caputo, Raffaele Villanacci, Quirino Ciampi and Bruno Villari

      Article first published online: 19 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2009.01139.x

      In an 8-year-old girl with DiGeorge syndrome, echocardiography and three-dimensional contrastenhanced computed tomography revealed a retro-esophageal cervical aortic arch extending cranially to the level of the fi rst thoracic vertebra. Supraaortic branches were, in order: the left, and then the right, common carotid arteries; the right, and then the left, subclavian–vertebral arteries. The origin of the last artery was an eccentric dilatation of the wall (Kommerell's diverticulum).
