Left ventricular outflow tract pseudoaneurysm is an uncommon but potentially catastrophic complication of aortic valve surgery, aortic valve endocarditis or chest trauma. We describe a case of a left ventricular outflow tract pseudoaneurysm 1 month after an aortic valve replacement that caused a systolic compression of mitral valve and a severe(More)
In 19 human fetal and newborn hearts with atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD), not associated with other anomalies, the two ventricles were studied morphometrically. A total of 17 different parameters were studied: nine in the right ventricle and eight in the left. In the right ventricle we analyzed ventricular wall thickness, length of right ventricular(More)
A morphometric study was performed in 18 human hearts with atrioventricular septal defect not associated with other anomalies; 16 hearts had common atrioventricular orifices, and 2 presented separate right and left atrioventricular orifices. A total of eight parameters were analyzed, characterizing ventricular wall thickness, length and circumference of the(More)
