    1. Infective Endocarditis Related to a Coronary Artery Fistula with an Unusual Localization and Ectatic Coronary Arteries (pages 711–715)

      Demet Menekse Gerede, Aynur Acibuca, Caglar Uzun, Huseyin Goksuluk, Aydan Ongun, Mustafa Kilickap and Cetin Erol

      Article first published online: 31 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12822

      Mini-Abstract

      Coronary artery fistulas (CAF) are a rare congenital anomaly. They are usually asymptomatic but can present with clinically significant complications. We describe a patient presenting infective endocarditis involving a coronary artery fistula between the left ventricle and a giant circumflex coronary artery. Diagnosis was first made by echocardiography and confirmed by coronary computed tomography (CT). While discussing this case, we also review the literature on coronary artery fistula and coronary artery ectasia.

    2. Prenatal Diagnosis of an Aneurysm of the Mitral-Aortic Intervalvular Fibrosa (pages 716–719)

      Sheng Zhao, Xinlin Chen and Xiaohong Yang

      Article first published online: 20 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12841

      Mini-Abstract

      Aneurysm of the mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa (A-MAIVF) is a rare but potentially fatal condition. The aneurysm is located between the mitral and aortic valves and communicates with the left ventricular outflow tract, and the differential diagnoses include dilated coronary sinuses and coronary arteriovenous fistula. We describe the first reported case of an A-MAIVF diagnosed in the fetus.

    1. Ruptured Aneurysm of Anterior Mitral Leaflet in Aortic Valve Infective Endocarditis (pages 720–722)

      Isabel Zegrí, Vanessa Moñivas, Susana Mingo, Carlos Garcia-Montero and Miguel A. Cavero

      Article first published online: 3 NOV 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.12831

      Mini-Abstract

      We report the case of a 71-year-old man admitted with acute heart failure and suspicion of infective endocarditis (IE). Three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (3DTEE) showed ruptured aneurysm of anterior mitral leaflet (AAML) in scallop A2 with severe mitral regurgitation and perforation of right and noncoronary aortic cusps with severe aortic regurgitation. TEE is more sensitive than transthoracic echocardiography for the diagnosis of AAML and 3DTEE provides further morphological information as well about the relationship with adjacent structures. This information has important implications for medical and surgical purposes.
