      Fibrous Cyst of the Chordae Tendineae of the Mitral Valve: Echocardiographic Appearance and Literature Review (pages 174–177)

      Yan-Bo Zhu, Xiu-Hong Zhang, Lian-Qun Wang and Xin Guan

      Article first published online: 24 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12750

      Mini-Abstract

      Mitral chordae fibrous cyst is defined as a fibrous cyst arising from the chordae tendineae of the mitral valve. It is extremely rare and its etiology is not clear. Only one case has been reported in the past years. We present a case of mitral chordae fibrous cyst.

      Right Ventricular Mass: Intracardiac Ectopic Thyroid Tissue: A Case Report (pages 178–180)

      Murat Bulent Rabus, Nertila Poçi, Fatih Yılmaz, Onur Yerlikhan, Tugba Aktemur, Akin Arslan, Selcuk Ozturk, Ibrahim Oztek and Mehmet Balkanay

      Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12741

      Mini-Abstract

      Ectopic thyroid tissue is a result of abnormal migration of thyroid tissue during the embryonic state. Most of these rare cases, almost 90% of them, are located in the base of the tongue and a minority of them are located anteriorly near the hyoid bone area. We report the case of a young patient with an intracardiac mass first diagnosed with three-dimensional echocardiography and after successfully being treated surgically.

      Real Time Three-Dimensional Transesophageal Echocardiography Guided Coronary Sinus Cannulation during CARILLON Mitral Annuloplasty Device Therapy for a Patient with Chronic Severe Mitral Regurgitation (pages 181–183)

      Hani M. Mahmoud, Mohammed A. Al-Ghamdi and Abdullah E. Ghabashi

      Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12745

      Mini-Abstract

      The coronary sinus (CS) has become a clinically important structure especially through its role in providing access for different cardiac procedures. Fluoroscopy with or without two dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (2DTEE) is the widely used method for guidance. A 78-year-old female patient was undergoing percutaneous CARILLON mitral annuloplasty device therapy for chronic severe symptomatic mitral regurgitation. After insertion of the coronary sinus catheter through the right internal jugular vein, multiple trials for coronary sinus cannulation guided by fluoroscopy and 2DTEE were unsuccessful. So, real time three-dimensional zoom mode was used to get the anatomically oriented en face view of the interatrial septum from the right atrial perspective. The CS ostium was identified then the catheter was reintroduced through the SVC into the right atrium then easily navigated to cannulate the coronary sinus ostium.

      Real Time Three-Dimensional Transesophageal Echocardiography Demonstration of Membranous Septal Aneurysm Causing Severe Right Ventricular Outflow Tract Obstruction (pages 184–186)

      Saktheeswaran K. Mahesh, Senthil Kumar, Santhosh Satheesh and Balachander Jayaraman

      Article first published online: 18 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12739

      Mini-Abstract

      In addition to infundibular muscular hypertrophy and anomalous muscle bundles in the right ventricular body, large membranous septal aneurysms (MSA), sinus of Valsalva aneurysms, and aneurysms derived from the embryonic venous valve protruding through the tricuspid valve can cause right ventricular outflow obstruction in a patient with ventricular septal defect. Here we describe an adult with a small perimembranous ventricular septal defect complicated by a large MSA causing severe right ventricular outflow obstruction evaluated with real time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography.

      Metastatic Cardiac Sarcoma Arising from the Left Posterior Pulmonary Vein Treated with Combination Therapy of Surgical Resection and Preoperative Chemotherapy Treatment (pages 187–188)

      Constantina Aggeli, Stilianos Kastellanos, Kika Pliarchopoulou, Ioannis Felekos and Christodoulos Stefanadis

      Article first published online: 27 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12780

      Mini-Abstract

      A 44-year-old man with pulmonary sarcoma presented symptoms of dyspnea, cough, chest pain, and fatigue. During echocardiographic examination, a large mass was revealed inside the left atrium causing severe mitral valve obstruction. The patient underwent chemotherapy with alleviation of symptoms. Follow-up echocardiogram revealed decreased mass size and no mitral valve obstruction. The mass stemmed from the left posterior pulmonary vein. After surgical resection, the mass was revealed to be a sarcoma. Postsurgery echocardiogram was normal. The patient has remained asymptomatic. Chemotherapy may decrease the size of a cardiac sarcoma and alleviate mitral valve obstruction symptoms, thus facilitating complete resection.

      Article first published online: 24 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12755

      Mini-Abstract

      Aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva (ASV) is an uncommon condition which may be congential or acquired. Here, we describe a case of ASV thrombosis presented with both acute myocardial infarction and acute stroke.

      Primary Intimal (Spindle Cell) Sarcoma of the Left Atrium (pages 192–194)

      Bo Fu, Hui Yu and Jian Yang

      Article first published online: 5 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12777

      Mini-Abstract

      A previously healthy 50-year-old man presented to our hospital with a history of progressive shortness of breath and diminished exercise tolerance for 3 months. A transthoracic echocardiogram was interpreted as showing a left atrial mass that was mobile and protruding into the left ventricle and noted that it was “like a myxoma, though its attachment was not visualized.” He was taken to the operating room with the initial diagnosis of left atrial myxoma, but upon surgical inspection of the left atrium, it was noted that the appearance of the tumor was more suggestive of malignancy. Pathologic examination revealed sheets of high-grade densely packed spindle cells replacing and infiltrating into the atrial wall.
