Venous aneurysms arising from the mediastinal systemic veins are rare. There are only 27 reported cases of such aneurysms. Majority arise from the superior vena cava. We are reporting a saccular aneurysm of superior vena cava in a 58-year-old male. The chest radiogram suggested superior mediastinal mass and the computed tomogram was suggestive of aortic(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate a rare subset of adult patients with double-chambered right ventricle, pertaining to clinical presentation, rhythm disturbances, surgical approach, and results of surgical repair. A retrospective review of our records revealed that 14 adults had undergone surgical repair of double-chambered right ventricle from 1990(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) with monocusp pulmonary valve reconstruction prevents pulmonary regurgitation (PR) for a variable period. Since postoperative outcome is governed by PR and right ventricular function, we sought to assess the severity of pulmonary regurgitation and right ventricular outflow (RVOT) gradient in the(More)
OBJECTIVES The incidence of endotracheal tube (ETT) malposition in children with various described methods is 15% to 30%. Chest x-ray (CXR) is the gold standard for confirming appropriate ETT position. The aim of this study was to measure the accuracy of a preoperative CXR-based method in determining depth of insertion of ETTs and to compare it with methods(More)
OBJECTIVE Review of intraoperative anesthetic challenges and the role of transesophageal echocardiography in children with sinus venosus atrial septal defect and partial anomalous pulmonary venous drainage undergoing Warden repair. DESIGN A retrospective observational case series. METHODOLGY: Pediatric patients who underwent Warden repair between October(More)

Double outlet right ventricle (DORV) is almost always associated with a ventricular septal defect. The variant of DORV with intact ventricular septum is very uncommon and may be associated with fetal demise or death immediately after birth. Reports of successful palliation of these patients to the stage of superior cavopulmonary anastomosis (bidirectional(More)
A 14-year-old girl underwent classical Blalock-Taussig shunt at 5 months of age. Computed tomography evaluation showed "Adachi type H" pattern of aortic arch vessels with the right common carotid artery being anastomosed to the right pulmonary artery mistaking it for the right subclavian artery.
