  1. Asymmetric Parachute-Like Tricuspid Valve with Severe Tricuspid Regurgitation in an Adult Patient

    Parachute-like tricuspid valve is a very uncommon congenital heart disease that may cause tricuspid stenosis or regurgitation. Different from a parachute anomaly, more than one papillary muscle group is present in a parachute-like defect. We report a case of parachute-like tricuspid valve diagnosed in adulthood using three-dimensional transthoracic echocardiography.

  3. Rapid Swelling of Infarcted Myocardium Soon after Primary Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: A Sign of Critical Reperfusion Hemorrhage

    Although early reperfusion is the best approach to salvage ischemic myocardium and limit myocardial necrosis in patients with acute myocardial infarction, revascularization can also lead to adverse effects by causing reperfusion injury that results in further myocyte necrosis. Intramyocardial hemorrhage is considered a fulminant form of reperfusion injury and is caused by the extravasation of red blood cells via damaged endothelial walls; this leads to the expansion of the myocardial necrosis. Here, we present a case with intramyocardial hemorrhage demonstrating rapid swelling of infarcted myocardium after successful primary percutaneous coronary intervention and discuss its clinical implication.

  5. Multiple Coronary Artery Aneurysms of the Right Coronary Artery in Neonate with Pulmonary Atresia with Intact Ventricular Septum

    Article first published online: 9 FEB 2016 | DOI: 10.1111/echo.13191


    Pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum (PA/IVS) with right ventricular dependent coronaries is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly. Coronary artery aneurysms in a neonate with PA/IVS have not been described. We report a case of neonate with pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum with giant coronary artery aneurysms.
