    ABSTRACT: Papillary fibroelastomas are cardiac benign tumours. Among the benign cardiac tumor, papillary fibroelastomas are reported second after myxomas. Most often diagnosed incidentally, papillary fibroelastomas may embolize to cerebral circulation. Valvular locations are predominant; location in left atrium is rare. In this paper, we present a case of papillary fibroelastoma located in left atrium with symptoms of cerebral embolization. Transoesophageal echocardiography diagnosed a mobile mass. The patient was treated with surgical resection without further embolic complication.

    ABSTRACT: Pseudo-aneurysm of the fibrous continuity zone between the aortic and mitral valves, the so-called "mitral-aortic intervalvular fibrosa" is a rare complication of acute infective endocarditis, rarely after an aortic valve replacement. We report the case of a large pseudo-aneurysm occurred in a 70-year-old man, who had a history of surgical aortic valve replacement 3 years before. There were no biological or clinical evidence for infective acute endocarditis. The originality of this observation can be summarized in three points: the late onset after surgery, the absence of any infectious context and the chronic nature of pseudo-aneurysm, without any complication during a follow-up of 12 months. Transesophageal echocardiography remains the best diagnostic tool.

    ABSTRACT: We describe two cases of thrombosis after mitral valvuloplasty (MV). Antithrombotic therapy after MV in patients with no thromboembolic risk factors is essentially based on treatment with a platelet aggregation inhibitor. This strategy may not be sufficient in some cases and the introduction of oral anticoagulant therapy may be necessary.

    ABSTRACT: In this single-center French study, the conventional management of patients receiving vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) was compared with an International Normalized Ratio (INR) self-testing program. The aim was to determine the reliability of self-testing devices, and to estimate the variability of the self-measured INR within the therapeutic and target range. A total of 206 patients who had undergone valve replacement with a mechanical prosthesis, with or without myocardial revascularization, between May 2004 and September 2007 was randomized into two groups. Group 1 patients (n = 103) underwent INR monitoring at a laboratory, while Group 2 patients (n = 103) underwent self-testing INR using either the CoaguChek (Roche) (Group 2A; n = 55) or INRatio (Hemosense) (Group 2B; n = 48) system. Patients in Group 1 underwent at least once-monthly INR measurement, while those in Group 2 carried out once-weekly self-testing, and also underwent once-monthly INR measurement at the laboratory. The large majority of patients (97.9%) were treated with fluindione. The mean follow up period was 49.0 +/- 10.3 weeks. Self-testing was reliable, with a correlation coefficient between device- and laboratory-measured INRs of 0.80 [CI: 0.78, 0.82] (p < 0.0001). The proportion of time spent within the INR target range was significantly higher for Group 2 (61.5 +/- 19.3% versus 55.5 +/- 19.9%; p < 0.05), while the absolute mean deviation of INR from the target range was higher in Group 1 (60.1 +/- 70.2% versus 47.4 +/- 51.5%). Adverse events were reported by seven patients in Group 1, but by no patients in Group 2 (p < 0.01). INR self-testing devices are reliable and beneficial. Moreover, INR self-monitoring allows an enhanced stability within a target range, and also helps to prevent serious postoperative complications.

    ABSTRACT: To present the results of a 15-year follow-up of the Sorin Bicarbon prosthesis (SBP) from a European multicentre study. From 1990 to 1996, a total of 1900 SBPs were implanted in 1704 patients, with a mean age of 59±13 years, as aortic (AVR, 922 patients), mitral (MVR, 586) or mitro-aortic (DVR, 196) valve replacement. Most patients received an SBP for rheumatic or degenerative valve disease. Concomitant procedures were performed in 25% of cases, mainly coronary artery bypass grafting (14%) or tricuspid annuloplasty (7%). There were 70 (4.1%) early deaths. Actuarial survival at 15 years is 61.4% (95% confidence interval (CI): 56.4-66.0) for AVR, 63.4% (59.1-67.5) for MVR, 56.4% (47.3-64.6) for DVR. Late valve-related deaths were 260 with an actuarial freedom from valve-related deaths at 15 years of 76.4% (81.5-83.7). There were 27 cases of SBP thrombosis with an actuarial freedom from this complication at 15 years of 99.6% (98.6-99.9) after AVR, 95.8% (93.0-97.5) after MVR and 97.0% (92.8-98.7) after DVR. Thrombo-embolic episodes were 159; actuarial freedom from thrombo-embolism at 15 years is 88.8% (86.8-90.5). Haemorrhages related to anticoagulant treatment occurred in 293 cases with 39 fatal episodes; actuarial freedom at 15 years is 77.5% (74.2-80.4). There were 45 episodes of endocarditis, 21 required re-operation; actuarial freedom from endocarditis at 15 years is 96.8% (95.6-97.7). Re-operation was performed in 71 patients (non-structural valve deterioration in 28, endocarditis in 21, SBP thrombosis in 15 and non-valve-related causes in seven patients). No cases of structural failure were observed. Actuarial freedom from re-operation at 15 years is 97.6% (96.3-98.5) after AVR, 92.8% (90.1-94.8) after MVR and 90.7% (85.2-94.2) after DVR. The SBP continues to perform satisfactorily even in the long term with low incidence of valve-related mortality and morbidity confirming to be an extremely reliable and durable mechanical valve substitute.

    ABSTRACT: We present the case of a 57-year-old woman with severe aortic regurgitation and ventricular dysfunction (ejection fraction 34%) requiring surgical intervention. In pre-operative period, no left ventricular (LV) asynchrony was detected by QRS duration and current echocardiographic techniques, including tissue Doppler imaging. A new echocardiographic technology, the timing of regional volumetric changes by three-dimensional echocardiography (3DEcho), demonstrated an intraventricular mechanical asynchrony. Indeed, during surgery, epicardial leads were attached to the right atrium and the right ventricle as part of the standard management. Two additional epicardial leads were attached to the left ventricle on the most delayed wall localized precisely by 3DEcho on the inferolateral wall. In post-operative period, biventricular (BiV) pacing showed improvement in the LV mechanical synchronization, resulting in improvement in the LV systolic function compared with right ventricular pacing or no pacing. This case shows the potential utility of 3DEcho in prediction of favourable response of the BiV pacing in patients with depressed LV systolic function ongoing cardiac surgery.

    ABSTRACT: Thromboembolic accidents and haemorrhage are the main complications observed during long-term follow-up of mechanical heart valve patients. Several suggestions for improving anticoagulation quality have been made, including international normalised ratio (INR) self-monitoring. We report the preliminary results of a single-centre, open, randomised study (scheduled population of 200 patients), which compares monthly laboratory monitoring (group A) versus weekly self-monitoring of INR (group B). The primary aim is INR stability improvement within the target range, and the secondary aim is adverse events reduction. Between May 2004 and June 2005, 67 patients with an average age of 56.6 years (+/-9.6), were enrolled in the study (group A: 34 patients, group B: 33 patients). The mean follow-up was 47 weeks (+/-11.5). The two groups differed only in the sex ratio (44.1 and 21.2% of women in groups A and B respectively, p=0.0459). Mechanical heart valves were aortic in 73% of patients, mitral in 13.5%, and multiple in 13.5%. Sixty-five patients (97%) were treated with fluindione, the others with acenocoumarol. The intraclass correlation coefficient between the self- and laboratory-monitored INR was 0.75. The time spent in the INR target range (group A: 53+/-19%, group B: 57+/--19%, p=0.45) and the time spent in the INR therapeutic range, between 2 and 4.5, (group A: 86+/-14%, group B: 91+/-7%, p=0.07) are longer in group B, but not significantly so. For patients outside the range, the absolute mean deviation of INR from the target or therapeutic range (range standardized between 0 and 100) is lower for the self-monitoring group (41.1+/-39.3 and 11.27+/-11.2) than for the control group (62.4+/-72.6 and 39.2+/-52.8). This difference is significant (p=0.0004 and p=0.0005). Eighteen adverse events were reported: 17 haemorrhages, 13 in group A (9 mild, 4 serious) and four in group B (all mild), and one sudden death in group B, two days after the patient's discharge. No thromboembolic events were reported. Six patients (8.8 %), 3 in each group, dropped out of the study. This first study evaluating INR self-monitoring in France shows that this method leads to better stability of the INR within the target range. On the basis of these preliminary data, this appears to be related to a decrease in serious haemorrhages (11.8% serious haemorrhage cases in group A versus 0% in group B, p=0.06, NS).

    ABSTRACT: Mitral valvuloplasty which is currently the most popular surgical procedure in MVD may be complicated mostly by restenosis or valvular leakage. Hemolysis occurs less frequently and by far less commonly than in prosthetic valves but deserves to be known. Delay between valvuloplasty and hemolytic anemia occurrence may vary within a wide range (from some weeks to several years as in the case we report here). A careful follow-up of the patients who undergo MV repair will help to identify this complication which is related not to the size of the regurgitation flow but to the velocity of the jet. Surgery is the unique treatment of this kind of anemia.

    ABSTRACT: Surgical site infection after heart surgery increases morbidity and mortality. The method of presurgical hand disinfection could influence the infection risk. From February to April 2003, we compared the microbiological efficacy of hand-rubbing (R) and hand-scrubbing (S) procedures. The surgical team alternately used hand-scrubbing or hand-rubbing techniques every two weeks. Fingertip impressions were taken before and immediately after hand disinfection, every 2h and at the end of the operation. Acceptability of hand rubbing was assessed by a questionnaire. Mean durations of surgical procedures were 259+/-68 and 244+/-69min for groups S and R respectively (P=0.43). Bacterial counts immediately after hand disinfection were comparable with the two techniques, but significantly lower in group R at the end of surgery. No differences were observed between the percentages of negative samples taken after 2h, 4h and at the end of surgery between the two groups. Bacterial skin flora reduction immediately after hand disinfection, after 2h and 4h of operating time and at the end of surgery was better in group R, but the difference was not statistically significant. Before surgery, the hand-rubbing method with alcohol solution preceded by hand washing with mild neutral soap is as effective as hand scrubbing to reduce bacterial counts on hands. It decreased the bacterial counts both immediately after hand disinfection and at the end of long cardiothoracic surgical procedures. The acceptability of hand rubbing was excellent and it can be considered to be a valid alternative to the conventional hand-scrubbing protocol.

    ABSTRACT: The authors report the case of a 39 years old woman operated for tetralogy of Fallot at the age of 6. Multiple complications due to postoperative atrioventricular block and a poor surgical result on the pulmonary outflow tract led to several reoperations. Right ventricular dysfunction with pulmonary regurgitation and mitral tricuspid valve disease in a context of endocarditis on the pacing catheter led to double pulmonary and tricuspid valve replacement with mechanical prostheses. The outcome at follow-up at 3 years is good. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first reported case of double mechanical valve replacement of the right heart after complete repair of tetralogy of Fallot.

    ABSTRACT: Primary cardiac lymphoma is a neoplasm with poor prognosis. It is occasionally seen in patients with AIDS and transplant recipients, and it is exceedingly rare in nonimmunocompromised hosts. Presentation is heterogeneous and nonspecific, making clinical suspicion difficult. Diagnosis is often late. There are different therapeutic options (chemotherapy, radiotherapy, monoclonal antibodies therapy, and surgery), but there is no uniform consent on the best management. Surgical treatment is controversial. We report our experience with a unique patient in 23 years.

    ABSTRACT: Spontaneous slow waves are present in the systemic circulation including the intracranial compartment. They are supposed to reflect the cerebral autoregulation. We hypothesised that in the absence of cardio respiratory variability, during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), we should reveal extreme physiologic controls. Ten patients were included. Arterial blood pressure (ABP, radial invasive), extracorporeal circuitry pressure and cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV, middle cerebral artery) were recorded. We analysed the slow waves in the B (8 to 50) and the UB (>50 to 200) bands (in milli-Hz). The analysis, before and during CPB, was performed in the tine domain (correlation coefficient, entropy, mean quantity of mutual information, relative entropy) and in the frequency domain (spectrogram, frequency spectrum, coherence). CPB dramatically changed monitored signals decreasing their entropy and revealing a dominant CBFV 70 mHz-frequency and a dominant ABP 9 mHz-frequency. There was no association between the signals (p < 0.05). Before CPB we found complex patterns where B and UB waves were present. We hypothesised that CPB provoked a highly protective mechanism, reducing the fluctuations of CBF, by a deactivation of B waves, revealing monotonous UB waves.

    ABSTRACT: Hunter's disease, a type II mucoplysaccharidosis, a disease of lysosomal overload, may cause cardiovascular disease. This mainly affects the valves of the left heart which are infiltrated, and results in regurgitation rather than stenosis of the aortic and mitral valves. The general context of this disease explains the fact that only one case of mitral valve replacement was found in a review of the literature. The authors report the case of a young patient who was very symptomatic because of mitral and aortic regurgitation and who underwent double valve replacement of the aortic and mitral valves with mechanical prostheses at 18 years of age. The skeletal involvement and respiratory function led to much discussion before surgical referral but the indication was finally retained in view of the patient's practically normal intellectual functions. Seven years later, the patient is asymptomatic from the cardiac point of view and has been included in a protocol of enzyme therapy.

    ABSTRACT: Although varicella is most often a benign and self-limited disease of childhood, it can be associated with a variety of serious and potential lethal complications. Especially, the incidence of severe infectious complications caused by group A streptococci has been increasing over the last years. We report the case of a previously healthy young boy with an aortic bicuspidy who developed a varicella complicated by endocarditis due to group A streptococcus, and a haemophagocytic syndrome. A favorable outcome was obtained after an early valvular replacement and 6 weeks of intravenous antibiotics.
