Congenitally unguarded tricuspid valve (TV) orifice, a variant of TV dysplasia, is a rare malformation with protean manifestations. This report describes a symptomatic adult male with gross right heart failure and atrial fibrillation, who was found to have an unguarded TV orifice with isolation of the trabecular apical cavity of the right ventricle (RV) and(More)
A 23-year-young female presented with mild exertional dyspnoea and palpitation since early childhood. By deploying 2D- and 3D echocardiography, she was detected to have situs solitus, atrioventricular and ventriculoarterial discordance with L-malposition of great vessels, valvular pulmonary stenosis, large secundum atrial septal defect, bicuspid aortic(More)
The rehabilitation of patients following maxillary & mandibular resection is challenging. A prosthesis supported with dental implants is often the treatment of choice, but implants cannot be used predictably in all clinical situations. A tissue supported post resection denture is usually the most acceptable treatment option left in these situations. This(More)
Parachute mitral valve and Pacman heart (incomplete muscular ventricular septal defect) are rare congenital deformities usually reported in infants and children. Very few adult patients with these anomalies are reported but the association of the two has not been described. This report describes a 56-year-old male with exertional dyspnea who was detected to(More)
Although acquired left ventricular outflow obstruction has been reported in a variety of conditions, there are scant reports of its occurrence following mitral valve replacement (MVR). This study describes two female patients, who developed severe discrete subaortic stenosis, five years following MVR. In both cases, the mitral valve was replaced by a(More)
Doppler-derived trans-prosthetic gradients are higher and the estimated effective valve area is smaller than the catheter-derived and directly measured hemodynamic values, mostly due to pressure recovery phenomenon. Pressure recovery to a varying extent is common to all prosthetic heart valves including bioprostheses. Pressure recovery-related differences(More)
Hypoplastic right heart syndrome is a rare cyanotic congenital heart disease with under-development of the right ventricle, tricuspid, and pulmonary valves leading to right-to-left shunting of the blood through inter-atrial septal defect. Perinatal mortality is high with very few patients surviving to adulthood without corrective surgery. This report(More)
According to Ayurveda various diseases are caused by sepratlon of natural urges (Vega-vidhran), as testified by Susruta who has described 13 types of udavarta rogas. Here an attempt is made to study thy effects of voluntary retention of urine on a series of patients suffering from stress disorders in terms of Neurohumoral, biochemical and physiological(More)
BACKGROUND Congenital anomaly wherein the mitral valve leaflets are directly attached to the papillary muscle(s) (PM) with or without short under-developed chords is rarely reported in adults. Patients with two PMs with an intervening fibrous bridge have also been included under this head in previous studies. METHODS Echocardiography enables accurate(More)
Mitral annular calcification (MAC) has been considered a predisposition and an association of thrombo-embolic disease. Superimposed thrombus on MAC is under-appreciated as a potential cause of systemic thrombo-embolism. This report describes an elderly gentleman, who had recurrent cerebral embolism and in one of the episodes, a large mobile thrombus was(More)
