Supravalvar mitral ring is a rare congenital heart defect of surgical importance. The condition is characterized by an abnormal ridge of the connective tissue on the atrial side of the mitral valve. It often substantially obstructs the mitral valve inflow. We herein introduce a case of a supravalvar mitral ring in a 17-year-old male, who was admitted to our(More)
INTRODUCTION Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common arrhythmia affecting patients in open heart ICU after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). Most cardiac surgery textbooks recommend beta blockers as the drug of choice for treating such a condition while many experienced physicians and a number of anesthesiology references offer amiodarone as the(More)
Objective: Arterial fibrillation is the most common type of arrhythmia observed after coronary arteries bypass operation and culminates in hemodynamic instability, higher morbidity and mortality rate, longer period of hospitalization, and higher hospital expenditures. The present research seeks to compare the effect of metoral, magnesium prophylactic, and a(More)
From 2004 to 2008, 64 infants with large ventricular septal defects were managed using a two-stage surgical approach. In the first stage, banding of the main pulmonary trunk was performed. The defect was then repaired months later. Debanding of pulmonary artery was accomplished without the need for pulmonary artery reconstruction.
BACKGROUND Sub-valvular apparatus preservation (SAP) during mitral valve replacement (MVR) is not a new concept. Some surgeons prefer to excise the apparatus. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to reduce the risk of prosthetic valve dysfunction. MATERIALS AND METHODS This retrospective study included 151 patients with the mean age of 46 years who(More)
Background: Neonatal lupus erythematosus is an uncommon disease. Congenital complete heart block (CCHB) usually happens in neonates with maternal systemic lupus erythematosus. The most prevalent presentation of CCHB is bradycardia that can be diagnosed through an electrocardiogram. Case report: Here in, we present the case of a full-term male neonate with(More)
