      Simultaneous Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and Muscular Ventricular Septal Defect in an Adult Patient (pages E110–E111)

      Sahadev T. Reddy, Antonio Tito Paladino Filho, Ronald B. Williams and Robert W.W. Biederman

      Version of Record online: 13 FEB 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2011.01632.x

      The incidence of muscular ventricular septal defect (VSD) in children is rare, but its prevalence among hypertropic cardiomyopathy (HCM) patients is surprisingly high. We present a 24-year-old female with HCM associated with muscular VSD without significant symptoms or hemodynamic implications. Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging plays an important role in anatomic and functional noninvasive evaluation of these patients.

    2. Complex Ventricular Septal Rupture with Dissection of the Right Ventricular Wall in Ischemic Context (pages E112–E114)

      Gustavo Pires de Morais, Nelson Paulo, Miguel Silva Vieira, Francisco Sampaio, Nuno Bettencourt, Sofia Cabral, José Ribeiro, Conceição Fonseca, Severo Torres, Luís Vouga and Vasco Gama

      Version of Record online: 13 FEB 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2011.01636.x

      A 72-year-old man was admitted to the local hospital with non-ST elevation myocardial infarction. In the first 24 hours, a new onset apical murmur was heard. Transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography showed interventricular septal (IVS) rupture and dissection of the right ventricle (RV) wall forming an echolucent cavity that partially occupied the RV and communicated with the true RV cavity. Multislice computed tomography characterized in detail the IVS and RV wall dissection, and further showed the right coronary artery lining the pericardium, excluding pericardial fluid. Despite surgical correction, progression to cardiogenic shock and death occurred 33 days after admission.

    3. Carotid–Jugular Fistula Diagnosed by Transesophageal Echocardiography (pages E115–E118)

      Chris Somerville, Lindsay A. Lucas and Robert W. W. Biederman

      Version of Record online: 13 FEB 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2011.01633.x

      Arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) in the neck are rare, and are most frequently caused by internal jugular catheter placement or penetrating trauma. Diagnosis can be missed when pathognomonic physical exam findings are absent. We present a case of common carotid-internal jugular fistula diagnosed during transesophageal echocardiography. Causes, physical exam findings, complications, diagnostic imaging, and treatment are discussed.

    4. Intracranial Hemorrhage as a Complication of Dobutamine Stress Echocardiography: Case Report and Review of the Literature (pages E119–E121)

      Sachin P. Shah and G. Muqtada Chaudhry

      Version of Record online: 26 APR 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2011.01623.x

      Dobutamine stress echocardiography is a generally well-tolerated study to evaluate patients with suspected coronary artery disease. Rare but life-threatening complications of this study have been well described. Severe hypertensive responses are a known but uncommon adverse reaction to dobutamine infusion. The authors report a case of intracranial hemorrhage in the setting of severe hypertension as a complication of dobutamine stress echocardiography.

    5. Parachute Mitral Valve with Severe Mitral Regurgitation in an Adult Patient (pages E122–E125)

      Nilda Espinola-Zavaleta, Reema Chugh and Gabriela Meléndez Ramírez

      Version of Record online: 14 FEB 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2011.01620.x

      Parachute mitral valve (PMV) is rarely seen in the adult population. We report a case of an 18-year-old woman with a history of exertional dyspnea, atypical chest pain, and cough for about 1 year. The echocardiographic examination identified a PMV with severe mitral regurgitation associated with bicuspid aortic valve and coarctation of the aorta. Most patients present with mitral stenosis of varying degree of severity, and rarely present with severe mitral regurgitation as seen in our patient.

      A Combination of Two Pseudoaneurysms Due to Severe Endocarditis after Cardiac Surgery (pages E126–E128)

      Bo Fu, Li Dong, Hongsheng Yuan and Shu Lin Zhao

      Version of Record online: 9 MAR 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2012.01674.x

      A 25-year-old man who had undergone aortic valve replacement 4 months earlier presented with one episode of syncope. A transthoracic echocardiogram revealed a saccular structure was below the aortic valve annulus and a small vegetation was on the aortic valve prosthesis; blood cultures were positive for Staphylococcus epidermidis. Thoracic computed tomography scan, two-dimensional transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE), and three-dimensional TEE demonstrated a combination of two pseudoaneurysms due to severe endocarditis, pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta, and pseudoaneurysm of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa.

    2. Three-Dimensional Transesophageal Echocardiography of a Medtronic Hall–Type Tilting Disk Valve (pages E129–E130)

      Version of Record online: 9 MAR 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1540-8175.2012.01675.x

      We present 3D images of a tilting disk valve (Medtronic Hall) functioning in a total artificial heart.
