  1. Visualization of pulmonary vein obstruction by pulmonary artery wedge injection and documentation by pressure tracings: report of one case w...

    International Journal of Cardiology 49(2):167 (1995) PMID 7628888

    A 21-month-old boy presented with persistent wheezing 16.5 months after cardiac surgery for supracardiac total anomalous pulmonary venous connection. He had presented at birth with cyanosis and at the age of 25 days, underwent initial cardiac surgery in the form of anastomosis of the...
  2. Total anomalous pulmonary venous connection to the portal and splenic vein associated with unilateral hypoplasia of pulmonary veins.

    European Journal of Cardio-thoracic Surgery 10(12):1141 (1996) PMID 10369652

    We report a case of a newborn with a challenging form of obstructed infracardiac TAPVR, in whom left and right pulmonary veins drained separately into the portal system. The right pulmonary venous sinus connected to the left branch of the portal vein, whereas the left venous sinus connected to the s...
  3. Noninfectious pulmonary complications after organ transplantation.

    Current Opinion in Pulmonary Medicine 2(5):412 (1996) PMID 9363176

    Organ transplantation is a successful and recognized option for patients with end-stage pulmonary, cardiac, hepatic, renal, and hematologic disease. As with any new technology, however, a set of complications has developed in the form of lung injury after transplantation as a result of ischemic, che...
  4. Simultaneous assessment of right ventricular function and hypertrophy by Tc-99m MIBI.

    Clinical Nuclear Medicine 24(3):151 (1999) PMID 10069721

    A significant correlation was observed between the right ventricular ejection fraction calculated on right heart catheterization and that calculated on right heart blood pool scintigraphy. The right ventricular uptake:left ventricular uptake ratio correlated positively with pulmonary artery pressure...
  5. MR evaluation of pulmonary vein diameter reduction after radiofrequency catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation.

    European Radiology 16(11):2505 (2006) PMID 16639495

    Fifty consecutive patients aged 52+/-12 years suffering from drug refractory atrial fibrillation (AF) underwent baseline and post-ablation MR angiography (MRA) at a mean follow-up of 4+/-3.5 months. Pulmonary vein (PV) disconnection was performed with a maximum energy delivery of 30 W. MRA allowed a...
  6. [Peripheral embolic arterial accident due to pulmonary vein thrombosis revealing bronchial carcinoma].

    Annales de Cardiologie et d'Angéiologie 47(1):11 (1998) PMID 9772926

    The authors report a case of left superior pulmonary vein thrombosis discovered on transoesophageal ultrasonography in the context of aetiological assessment of a systemic vascular accident. This unusual site of a thrombus on an anatomically perfectly normal left atrium led the authors to perform a...
  7. Failure of cutting balloon angioplasty to prevent restenosis in childhood pulmonary vein stenosis.

    Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions 68(5):767 (2006) PMID 17039531

  8. An unusual cause of pulmonary vein stenosis: a case report and review of the literature.

    Echocardiography 23(8):685 (2006) PMID 16970720

    We describe the case of a patient with the Carney syndrome and several resections for recurrent left atrial myxomas who underwent autotransplantation of the heart with resection of the left and right atria and reconstruction of both atria with bovine pericardium. She subsequently presented with seve...
  9. Failure of cutting balloon angioplasty to prevent restenosis in childhood pulmonary venous stenosis.

    Catheterization and Cardiovascular Interventions 68(5):763 (2006) PMID 17039530

    We describe bilateral pulmonary vein stenosis in a 5-year-old boy. He initially presented with haemoptysis secondary to left upper lobe pulmonary vein atresia and left lower lobe stenosis and subsequently he underwent left-sided pneumonectomy. He underwent repeat cardiac catheterizations with repeat...
  10. Management of Congenital and Acquired Pulmonary Vein Stenosis

    Annals of Thoracic Surgery 81(3):5 (2006) PMID 16488708

    Patients with pulmonary vein stenosis continue to have a guarded prognosis. Sutureless pericardial marsupialization was associated with satisfactory midterm results and appears superior to other conventional techniques....
