OBJECTIVES To study the immediate, short, and intermediate results of transcatheter closure of secondum-type atrial septal defect using Amplatzer septal occluder devices (TCAA) in terms of clinical symptoms and residual lesions and shunts determined by transthoracic two-dimensional (TTE) and three-dimensional echocardiography (TDE). MATERIAL AND METHOD(More)
Advantage of transjugular approach in percutaneous mitral commissurotomy (PTMC) of severe mitral stenotic patients with venous drainage anomalies was obtained as the authors' first case experience. This approach should be considered whenever difficulties are encountered in the femoral approach in PTMC case before valve surgery.
BACKGROUND Chronic right ventricular pacing has deleterious effects to left ventricular function which may be asymptomatic. Prevalence of LV dysfunction (LVEF < 50%) in RV pacing in Thai patients is not known. MATERIAL AND METHOD Patients in the Central Chest Institute of Thailand (CCIT) pacemaker clinic were retrospectively reviewed for their demographic(More)
BACKGROUND The benefits of right ventricular pacing in patients with symptomatic bradycardia are well recognized. Currently, left ventricular (LV) function after cardiac pacing has already been extensively investigated. However existing data on right ventricular (RV) function in these patients is extremely limited. MATERIAL AND METHOD To test this,(More)
BACKGROUND Percutaneous metallic mitral commissurotomy (PMMC) has been accepted as an alternative to the traditional balloon technique. The advantage of the metallic commissurotome is that it is designed for several reuse and resterization and it is an interesting tool as seen by the authors. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy and safety of PMMC among a(More)
