Eighteen patients underwent surgery for intracardiac myxoma (16 left atrial and 2 right atrial) during the last 10 years. Seventeen patients had tumour stalk attached to the oval fossa. The myxoma was excised along with a cuff of the atrial septum, which was reconstructed using a Dacron patch in 15 patients and by direct suture in 2 patients. In the(More)
Pregnancy after valve replacement has been considered hazardous because of maternal and fetal complications secondary to anticoagulant medication, in addition to basic myocardial problems. Of 229 females aged 15-45 years with prosthetic valve replacement, 37 (including 34 with Björk-Shiley valve and anticoagulants) subsequently had a total of 47(More)
One hundred two patients sustaining cardiac injuries over a 4-year period were analysed to highlight the natural history of the cardiac injuries. There were 45 blunt, 36 stab, and 21 gunshot injuries. The injury involved the ventricle in 85, atrium in seven, pulmonary artery in five cases, and resulted in crush injury to the heart in the remaining five(More)
A total of 202 patients (62 with tricuspid atresia and 140 without tricuspid atresia) underwent univentricular repair at our unit from January 1990 to September 1994. Of these patients, 182 had nonfenestrated and 20 had fenestrated interatrial baffles. Early mortality was 15.9% (29/182) in the group with nonfenestrated baffles and 5% (1/20) in the group(More)
Fourteen patients underwent thrombectomy for thrombosis of implanted Björk-Shiley valves (13 in the mitral and one in the aortic position) between January, 1975, and July, 1984. There was no operative mortality or perioperative embolism. Over a follow-up period of 1 to 96 months (average 23.5 months), there was no late mortality. Serial evaluation of valve(More)
Closed mitral valvotomy for rheumatic mitral stenosis was performed on 126 pregnant women (average duration of pregnancy c. 21 weeks), 91% of whom were in NYHA functional class III or IV. Associated functional tricuspid regurgitation was present in 47 (37%) of the women, and 102 (81%) had critical mitral stenosis (digitally assessed valve area less than 1(More)
