    1. Lone Aortic Insufficiency and Conduction Disease: A Marker of Reactive Arthritis (pages E271–E274)

      Joshua M. Lader, Geoffrey Lam, Robert Donnino, Edward S. Katz, Abe DeAnda Jr., Mark Ettel and Muhamed Saric

      Article first published online: 24 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12691

      Mini-Abstract

      We report the case of a 48-year-old man with chronic reactive arthritis (previously referred to as the Reiter's syndrome) who presented with a heart failure syndrome due to severe lone aortic insufficiency. The case demonstrates multimodality imaging of the classic cardiac findings associated with the immunogenetic marker HLA-B27.

    2. Intramural Hematoma and Oozing Rupture of Left Atrium after Resection of Wide-Based Left Atrial Myxoma (pages E275–E277)

      Suguru Ohira, Kiyoshi Doi, Sachiko Maeda and Hitoshi Yaku

      Article first published online: 22 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12699

      Mini-Abstract

      We describe a rare complication after the resection of the left atrial (LA) myxoma. After tumor resection, a large defect of the endocardium was reinforced with an autologous pericardial patch. Transesophageal echocardiography demonstrated a hematoma and pulsatile flow beneath the patch, without patch perforation or detachment. Bleeding increased after closure of the sternum. Intramural hematoma and oozing rupture of the LA were diagnosed. A small intramural vessel of the LA was identified as the main causative site of bleeding. The pericardial patch was repositioned with fibrin glue. Fibrin sheets and glue were applied for reinforcement of the LA from outside.

    3. Bioprosthetic Mitral Valve Thrombosis Complicating Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome, Successfully Treated with Thrombolysis (pages E278–E281)

      Mohammed A. Chamsi-Pasha, Tareq Alyousef and Samer Sayyed

      Article first published online: 22 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12703

      Mini-Abstract

      Bioprosthetic valve thrombosis is exceedingly rare with limited experience in diagnosis and treatment. We report the first case of bioprosthetic mitral valve thrombosis caused by antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, successfully treated with thrombolytic therapy.

    4. Ultrasonographic Imaging of the Cervical Thoracic Duct in Children with Congenital or Acquired Heart Disease (pages E282–E286)

      Lazaros K. Kochilas, Charles W. Shepard, James M. Berry and Alvin J. Chin

      Article first published online: 22 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12688

      Mini-Abstract

      This report describes the feasibility of assessing the cervical segment of the thoracic duct during echocardiographic evaluation in children with various cardiovascular conditions. Systematic evaluation of the thoracic duct may be useful in cardiovascular conditions with congestion of the lymphatic system such as single ventricle following Glenn or Fontan procedures.

    1. Echocardiography: A Case of Coronary Sinus Endocarditis (pages E287–E288)

      Clara Kwan, On Chen, Svetlana Radionova, Adnan Sadiq and Manfred Moskovits

      Article first published online: 28 JUN 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12665

      Mini-Abstract

      We present a case of a 23-year-old woman with end-stage renal disease on hemodialysis (HD) via a permacath for the past year, who was found to have endocarditis of the coronary sinus (CS). While patients on HD have higher rates of infective endocarditis (IE), involvement of the CS is rare with only a few cases reported. In our case, the presence of a HD catheter may have predisposed her to IE of the CS. Furthermore, her blood cultures were positive for Acinetobacter baumannii which is a rare pathogen but can be found in hospital settings and in patients on HD.

    2. A Case of a Fistula between Myxoma and a Branch of Right Coronary Artery (pages E289–E290)

      Antonio D'Aloia, Ivano Bonadei, Enrico Vizzardi, Riccardo Rovetta, Edoardo Sciatti and Marco Metra

      Article first published online: 28 JUN 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12664

      Mini-Abstract

      Atrial myxoma is a benign cardiac mass often seen during echocardiographic examinations. These masses often may present communication with coronary arteries due to the rupture of their vessel wall. We show the images of an incidental finding of two atrial myxomas with a fistula communication between them and a branch of right coronary artery.

    3. Embolization of an Atrial Septal Occluder Device in the Mitral Valve Apparatus (pages E291–E292)

      Ashenafi Tamene, Selome Gezahegn, Ann Coumbe, Kozhuvattasseri Madhusoodanan and Emil Missov

      Article first published online: 5 AUG 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12709

      Mini-Abstract

      Ostium secundum atrial septal defect is a common congenital anomaly. Treatment is indicated in patients with hemodynamically significant shunt and right ventricular failure. The Amplatzer septal occluder is one of the most commonly used devices for percutaneous closure of this type of defects. Embolization of the device to the systemic circulation is a rare but serious complication. We present a case of fatal embolization and entrapment of an Amplatzer atrial septal occluder device in the mitral valve apparatus in an elderly woman 4 days after implantation.
