      Incremental Value of Contrast Echocardiography in the Diagnosis of Atrial Myxoma (pages E46–E49)

      Pawan Hari, Tamam Mohamad, Ashok Kondur, Salik M. Jahania and Luis Afonso

      Article first published online: 30 MAR 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2009.01128.x

      Intracardiac myxomas have traditionally been divided into solid ovoid and soft papillary subtypes based on morphological appearance. Papillary myxomas given their friable nature are far more likely to cause embolic phenomenon and present with neurological symptoms, making it necessary to discriminate between these tumor sub types. Papillary myxomas have also been demonstrated to be significantly less vascular than their ovoid counterparts in previous angiographic studies. We describe here for the first time, application of transesophageal real time myocardial perfusion imaging in a case of papillary myxoma in order to assess tumor vascularity.

    4. Isolated Cleft Mitral Valve with Posterior and Anterior Clefts: a Rare Cause of Congenital Valve Regurgitation (pages E50–E52)

      Hajo Müller, Afksendyios Kalangos, Amir-Ali Fassa and René Lerch

      Article first published online: 25 MAY 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2009.01137.x

      We report a case of isolated cleft mitral valve with two clefts in the posterior and one in the anterior leaflet. Our case adds to the few reports of posterior and multiple mitral valve clefts and to our knowledge is the first using real-time transoesophageal three-dimensional echocardiography for assessment of isolated cleft mitral valve.

      Giant Coronary Artery Aneurysms in Kawasaki's Disease (pages E53–E54)

      Matthew Lytwyn, Jonathan Walker, Iain D. C. Kirkpatrick, John Ducas and Davinder S. Jassal

      Article first published online: 25 MAY 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2009.01140.x

      In Kawasaki's disease, both transthoracic echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance angiography can be used for non-invasive serial monitoring of coronary artery aneurysms without radiation exposure, as alternative cardiac imaging modalities to conventional coronary angiography.

    2. A Case of Bioabsorbable Atrial Septal Closure Device Fracture Diagnosed by Transesophageal Echocardiography Just after Deployment (pages E55–E56)

      Hamza Duygu, Cem Nazli and Oktay Ergene

      Article first published online: 10 MAY 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2010.01174.x

      The BioSTAR septal repair implant is a novel, bioabsorbable device specifi cally designed to provide biological closure of atrial-level defects using the patient's natural healing response. We describe a case of bioabsorbable atrial septal closure device fracture just after deployment.
