An 80-year-old man visited our hospital because of dyspnea on exertion from 6 months ago. Echo Doppler study showed severe calcification in the aortic valve with restricted movement and the sigmoid septum causing obstruction at the LV outflow tract (LVOT). Considering the aortic valve area (AVA)...
A 65-year-old obese woman with an oversized neck and dysphagia underwent transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). The procedure was complicated by difficulty in insertion from the pharynx to esophagus, and her head and neck gradually swelled. Computed tomography (CT) revealed extensive emphysema...
A 48-year-old woman diagnosed with aortic regurgitation showing a quadricuspid aortic valve (QAV) underwent repair with tricuspidization. Two non-coronary cusps (NCC) with fenestrations were detected intraoperatively. Tricuspidization of QAV was performed by approximating the two NCCs via...
