By Antonio F. Corno, Pierluigi Festa

The analysis and administration of congenital middle defects has quickly developed during the last few a long time. during this 3rd quantity of the sequence entitled "Congenital middle Defects: determination Making for surgical procedure" Antonio Corno presents an up to date and finished presentation of the recent position that cardiac CT and MRI will play within the administration of congenital center defects. He has been ably assisted by means of a heart specialist, Pierluigi Festa. The ebook presents a blinding array of pictures derived by way of either options and covers the whole variety of congenital center malformations. either the pre-operative and post-operative usefulness of those recommendations is gifted: within the pre-operative interval with reference to the main points invaluable for selecting between all to be had surgical recommendations; within the post-operative interval for tracking the follow-up and power issues. there's no doubt that those innovations could be really beneficial for older childrens and adults with congenital middle illness in assessing the overdue impression of a congenital middle malformation and the surgical fix or palliation which could were undertaken years formerly.

Ocular Vascular Occlusive Disorders

From the again Cover

This publication offers a complete account of the pathogenesis, scientific positive aspects, and administration of ocular vascular occlusive problems, with the focal point greatly at the medical proof. this gives a valid foundation for addressing the numerous controversies that encompass those problems, which jointly represent the commonest reason for visible impairment or blindness. The booklet is split into sections, the 1st of which addresses the fundamental technology and encompasses vascular anatomy, blood provide and movement, and retinal tolerance time to acute ischemia. the second one, medical, part covers the presentation, medical positive aspects, analysis, and therapy of the complete diversity of vascular occlusive problems of the retina, the choroid, the anterior phase of the attention, ophthalmic manifestations of carotid artery disorder and the optic nerve.

In writing Ocular Vascular Occlusive problems, the writer has drawn upon greater than fifty five years of expertise in uncomplicated and medical learn. The booklet may be a useful resource of data for common ophthalmologists, and especially for retina experts, neuro-ophthalmologists, and researchers. it's was hoping that it'll move some distance in rectifying the inability of in-depth clinical figuring out that's the resource of many misapprehensions and debates.

11. Status post repair of partial anomalous right pulmonary venous connection. MRI confirmed the severe obstruction of the superior vena cava just above its junction to the right atrium, as showed in the gadolinium-enhanced main intensity projection coronal plane (a); MRI also highlighted an unsuspected right upper pulmonary vein obstruction as illustrated in the fast spin echo axial plane (b) as well, probably caused by the surgical baffle (RA right atrium, RUPV right upper pulmonary veins, SVC superior vena cava) z Fig.

Standard oblique atriotomy: the upper right pulmonary vein is deviated to the left atrium by means of a patch (synthetic or pericardial) sewn along the wall of the superior caval vein so as to include the anomalously connected vein(s); suturing of the patch is then carried down into the right atrium, and then sewn around an unrestricted interatrial communication (already present or surgically created) in the upper part of the interatrial septum. In this way, the anomalously connected right pulmonary vein(s) can drain through a tunnel, whose posterior wall is composed of the superior caval vein and whose anterior wall is composed of a patch through the atrial septal defect into the left atrium.
