Thoracic aortic dilatation requires accurate and timely detection to prevent progression to thoracic aortic aneurysm and aortic dissection. The detection of thoracic aortic dilatation necessitates the availability of cut-off values for normal aortic diameters. Tools to evaluate aortic dimension above the root are scarce and inconsistent regarding age(More)
Hypertension in Turner syndrome (TS) is a multifactorial, highly prevalent and significant problem that warrants timely diagnosis and rigorous treatment. The objective of this study was to investigate the association between abnormal aortic arch morphology and hypertension in adult TS patients. This was a single centre retrospective study in 74 adult TS(More)
Turner syndrome is a rare chromosomal disorder with complete or partial absence of one X chromosome that only occurs in women. Clinical presentation is variable, but congenital and acquired cardiovascular diseases are frequently associated diseases that add significantly to the increased morbidity and mortality in Turner syndrome patients. Arterial(More)
BACKGROUND To study segmental structural and functional aortic properties in Turner syndrome (TS) patients. Aortic abnormalities contribute to increased morbidity and mortality of women with Turner syndrome. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) allows segmental study of aortic elastic properties. METHOD We performed Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV) and(More)
OBJECTIVE Follow-up after tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) repair is directed to detect timely right ventricular (RV) dysfunction by following pulmonary regurgitation and global RV size, with little attention for the effective contribution of regional RV dysfunction. This study investigates the contribution of regional RV dysfunction on exercise capacity after ToF(More)
Percutaneous closure is the treatment of choice for secundum-type atrial septal defects (ASD). Balloon sizing (BS) has been the method of choice for deciding on device size. Improved 2D- and 3D-transesophageal echocardiographic (TEE) imaging challenged the necessity of BS. Balloon sizing was performed with two additional techniques to measure the stretched(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to describe the prevalence, anatomy, associations and clinical impact of partial anomalous pulmonary venous return in patients with Turner syndrome. METHODS AND RESULTS All Turner patients who presented at our Turner clinic, between January 2007 and October 2015 were included in this study and underwent ECG,(More)
OBJECTIVES This study examines the outcome and procedural outcomes of percutaneous stent angioplasty for aortic coarctation in patients with Turner syndrome (TS). BACKGROUND TS occurs in 1 in 2,500 live-born females and is associated with aortic coarctation. METHODS In this multicenter, retrospective cohort study, all patients with TS and a coarctation(More)
Cardiac masses are rare, the differential diagnosis includes infections with vegetations or abscesses, neoplasms, thrombi, and structural abnormalities. A pathology specimen is essential in therapeutic strategy planning for a cardiac mass, also if the primary imaging findings look dramatic at the start. Even in an inoperable setting, a life-saving therapy(More)
