Abstract

We describe a 4-week-old baby with mitral atresia, hypoplastic left ventricle, ventricular septal defect, preductal coarctation and premature closure of the oval foramen whose only outlet from the left atrium was a stenosed right-sided levoatriocardinal vein and who in addition developed left atrial thrombi. Cross-sectional echocardiography was extremely helpful in establishing the diagnosis.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Filbrillation

Atrial fibrillation refers to the abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atria. Here is the latest research.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.

Aortic Coarctation

Aortic coarctation is a congenital condition characterized by narrowing of the aorta. Discover the latest research on this disease here.
