Hello, My nephew ' Preet' who has Congenital acyanotic heart disease. He is currently in INDIA and I need some consultation
before he undergoes open heart bypass.
2 D ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY AND COLOUR DOPPLER STUDY
Congenital acyanotic heart disease.
Moderate ostium secondum ASD ( 7 mm) with left to right shunt.
Moderate restrictive subaortic VSD ( 3.3 mm) with left to right shunt.
Good LV systolic function at rest. (LEVEL 61 % )
No evidence of coarctation of aorta or PDA or aortic egurgitation.
No pericardial effusion / clots / vegetation
Abdominal situs solitus.
IVC is connected RA.
Pulmonary veins are connected to LA.
Moderate sizes subaortic VSD - partially closed by the septal tricuspid
leaflet & low velocity left to right flow.
Left ventricular volume overload.
Good systolic LV function.
Normal other chambers
Grade II tricuspid regurgitation.
Trivial mitral regurgitation.
Severe pulmonary hypertension (estimated systolic PA pressure - 84 mmHg.)
No PDA /coarctation.
M MODE MEASUREMENTS: NOT TAKEN
VSD SIZE - 5 mm
Doppler measurements Peak gdt.mmHg
Mitral valve : 7/1.36
Aortic valve : 4/1
Pulmonary valve : 6/1.29
Desc Ao : 6/1.23
VSD Gradiant : 31 mmHg
TR : 74/4.32
Please help. Suhas Aligave 973-430-6473
How old is your nephew? The most concerning thing about the numbers reported here is the severe pulmonary hypertension. Oftentimes pulm0onary hypertension is irreversible if the condition has gone untreated for too long. However, if he is still young there is a possibility that the surgery will help to reduce the pressure. I would tend to agree that closing the atrial septal depfect (ASD) and the ventricular septal defect (VSD) are probably a good idea at this point. There will be some risk to the surgery and the surgeon can give an estimate of the risk of mortality during surgery.
Previous report when Preet was 21 days old.
