We report a 12-year-old girl who had multiple congenital cardiac lesions, specifically an arterial duct, left pulmonary arterial stenosis, an atrial septal defect in the oval fossa, and mild Ebstein's malformation of the tricuspid valve. Therapeutic transcatheter intervention was performed to stent the left pulmonary artery, occlude the arterial duct with a(More)
We describe the clinical history of a nine years old girl with Shone's syndrome. She underwent balloon angioplasty of the aortic coarctation in infancy, and later developed severe sub-aortic stenosis and moderate mitral valvar stenosis. The mitral valve was therefore replaced with a mechanical prosthesis, and the sub-aortic shelf was resected. Immediately(More)
We report a case of Uhl's anomaly in a 5-month-old cyanotic infant who presented with thromboembolic stroke and acute hemiparesis. The patient underwent successfully an initial surgical repair, which included exclusion of the right ventricle by patch closure of the tricuspid valve, atrial septectomy and construction of a bidirectional Glenn shunt. This was(More)
A 6-year-old girl was found to have a combination of accessory mitral valve tissue and subaortic membrane. The association caused left ventricular outflow tract obstruction leading to severe left ventricular dysfunction. Surgical relief of the obstruction resulted in immediate improvement of ventricular function.
