Marfan’s Syndrome: Pre-pubertal Aortic Rupture with Left Coronary Artery Aneurysms and Fistulas

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.233
Pages: 
937–40

ABSTRACT

Aortic dissection and rupture occur in 20–40% of patients with Marfan’s syndrome. This occurs predominantly in the third and fourth decade of life, contributing to the increased morbidity and mortality of this specific group of patients. This is the first known documented case report of prepubertal left coronary sinus rupture with left coronary artery aneurysms with fistulous communication to both the superior vena cava and right superior pulmonary vein, presenting with a continuous murmur.

Truncus Arteriosus: Surviving at 46 Years without Intervention

Issue: 
DOI:

Pages: 
273–6

 

ABSTRACT

The median survival of patients with truncus arteriosus is five weeks of age with rare cases reaching adulthood. The longest reported survivor with balanced ventricles, as the index case has, is 38 years of age. The index case is a 46-year old male with Type 3 truncus arteriosus. His case has never been documented in the English Literature as far as the author is aware.

Aorto-cavitary Fistula: A Complication of Infective Endocarditis

DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.221

ABSTRACT
Aorto-cavitary fistulae are rare complications of infective endocarditis. The diagnosis, in the absence of concomitant aortic valve disease, replacement of aortic valve with homograft or prosthetic valve, periannular abscess and negative blood culture, requires a high index of suspicion and has important prognostic and management significance. The sensitivity of the Modified Duke Criteria is challenged in this case report with a documented right sinus of valsalva fistula to the right ventricle seen on transthoracic echocardiography.
