    1. Cardiac Sarcoid: A Chameleon Masquerading as Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy and Dilated Cardiomyopathy in the Same Patient (pages E138–E141)

      Anushree Agarwal, Nasir Z. Sulemanjee, Omar Cheema, Francis X. Downey and A. Jamil Tajik

      Version of Record online: 8 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12536

      Mini-Abstract

      A 28-year-old female patient was originally diagnosed as having nonobstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (asymmetric septal thickness of 21 mm). She eventually progressed to class IV disability and was transferred to our medical center for advanced heart failure options. Echocardiogram revealed features of severe dilated cardiomyopathy with a thinned, scarred, akinetic, and bulging midseptum with sparing of the basal and apical septum, raising the suspicion of sarcoid, which was confirmed on ventricular biopsy. Thus, a distinctive appearance of the cardiac sarcoid spectrum from “hypertrophic” stage to thinned, scarred stage—masquerading as hypertrophic and then dilated cardiomyopathy—is demonstrated in our patient.

    2. Device Landing Zone Calcification Predicts Significant Paravalvular Regurgitation after Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement: A Real Time Three-Dimensional Transesophageal Echocardiography Study (pages E142–E144)

      Hirotsugu Mihara, Kentaro Shibayama, Kenji Harada, Javier Berdejo, Yuji Itabashi, Raj R. Makkar and Takahiro Shiota

      Version of Record online: 19 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12550

      Mini-Abstract

      Paravalvular regurgitation (PVR) after transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is one of the major complications with negative clinical prognosis. Therefore, its prediction is important for further improvement of the outcome. We present a case with TAVR, in which we successfully evaluated aortic valve calcification protruding inward and into left ventricular outflow tract by real time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography, and predicted significant PVR after the procedure. In conclusion, device landing zone calcification protruding inward is a key for the prediction of significant PVR after TAVR.

    3. Pulmonary Arteriovenous Malformations Presenting as Platypnea-Orthodeoxia in Graft-Versus-Host Disease (pages E145–E146)

      Mark Anderson, Siddharth Wayangankar, George Selby and Chittur A. Sivaram

      Version of Record online: 5 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12542

      Mini-Abstract

      This case highlights the utility of agitated saline studies during transesophageal echocardiography for detection of pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVM) as a viable alternative to contrast-enhanced imaging studies. In addition, this report represents the first documentation of PAVM arising as a complication of graft-versus-host disease after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant.

    4. Multiple Giant Aneurysms and Stenoses of the Coronary and Systemic Arteries in an Infant with Kawasaki Disease at the Early Stage of Convalescent Period (pages E147–E150)

      Filiz Ekici, Birgül Varan, Abdullah Kocabaş, İlkay Erdoğan, Sancar Eminoğlu and Doğukan Aktaş

      Version of Record online: 14 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12535

      Mini-Abstract

      We report the case of a 4-month-old Turkish infant who was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease associated with multiple “super giant” coronary aneurysms, huge coronary thromboses, and massive pericardial effusion. Multiple systemic arterial aneurysms and stenoses were also detected in subclavian, axillary, renal, and iliac arteries as well as coronary arteries at the beginning of convalescent period.

    5. A Flail Anterior Tricuspid Leaflet Secondary to Anteroposterior Papillary Muscle Rupture in a Neonate (pages E151–E155)

      Madhusudan Ambadas Yemul

      Version of Record online: 4 FEB 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12522

      Mini-Abstract

      This article is a summary of a case of a neonate who presented with tricuspid valve insufficiency associated with papillary muscle rupture but, however, showed no signs of cardiac failure. The transthoracic three-dimensional echocardiographic findings in this case are described in detail herein.

    1. Posteromedial Papillary Muscle Rupture Following Percutaneous Mitral Balloon Valvotomy (pages E156–E157)

      Göksel Açar, Cuneyt Toprak, Anıl Avci, Suleyman Cagan Efe and Ali Metin Esen

      Version of Record online: 20 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12564

      Mini-Abstract

      We report a case of Inoue balloon mitral valvotomy in a patient with low echo score that was complicated by severe regurgitation caused by a rupture of a papillary muscle, which only became apparent the day after the procedure. Our case highlights the importance of the follow-up of patients undergoing balloon mitral valvotomy even following a successful procedure on suitable valves.

    2. Iatrogenic External Pudendal Artery Pseudoaneurysm with a Communicating Arteriovenous Fistula–A Diagnostic and Therapeutic Pitfall (pages E158–E160)

      Mai Tone Lønnebakken, Terje H. Larsen, Eva Gerdts and Ole Martin Pedersen

      Version of Record online: 19 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12560

      Mini-Abstract

      Ultrasound is the preferred imaging modality in evaluation of iatrogenic pseudoaneurysms (PAs). This case illustrates that when a PA originating from the external pudendal artery, a side branch of the common femoral artery, is combined with a communicating arteriovenous fistula the diagnosis, having important therapeutic implications, may be misinterpreted by ultrasound.

    3. Right Superior Vena Cava to Left Atrium: Importance of “Bubbling It Right (pages E161–E162)

      Version of Record online: 19 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12562

      Mini-Abstract

      Bubble contrast echocardiogram is conventionally done through left hand while evaluating patients with unexplained cyanosis. We hereby report a case of anomalous drainage of superior vena cava to left atrium in child and highlight the importance of doing bubble contrast echocardiogram through right hand.

    4. Double-Outlet Right Atrium Associated with Hypoplastic Right Heart Structures and Aortic Stenosis: Echocardiographic Features (pages E163–E165)

      Poonam Punjwani Thankavel, Barry Gabbert and Claudio Ramaciotti

      Version of Record online: 25 MAR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12565

      Mini-Abstract

      Double-outlet right atrium, also known as straddling tricuspid valve without a ventricular septal defect, is an extremely rare congenital cardiac anomaly, in which the tricuspid valve has 2 ostia. We describe an infant with this finding in association with hypoplastic right heart structures and a dysplastic aortic valve.
