Unicuspid unicommissural aortic valve: an extremely rare congenital anomaly.

Sukhjeet Singh, Puneet Ghayal, Atish Mathur, Margaret Mysliwiec, Constantinos Lovoulos, Pallavi Solanki, Marc Klapholz, James Maher,

Unicuspid aortic valve is a rare congenital malformation that usually presents in the 3rd to 5th decade of life-and usually with severe aortic stenosis or regurgitation. It often requires surgical correction. Diagnosis can be made with 2- or 3-dimensional transthoracic or transesophageal echocardiography, cardiac computed tomography, or cardiac magnetic resonance ...

Interrupted aortic arch with post-interruption aneurysm and bicuspid aortic valve in an adult: a case report and literature review.

Dhruv M Patel, Pierre D Maldjian, Constantinos Lovoulos,

Interrupted aortic arch in adults is rare with a limited number of reported cases. We describe a case of a 53-year-old woman with interrupted aortic arch, bicuspid aortic valve, and post-interruption saccular aneurysm of the aorta. To our knowledge, this is only the second report of an adult patient with ... Read more >>

Innominate artery injury from disseminated tuberculosis.

Oliver S Chow, Joe T Huang, Justin T Sambol, Paul J Bolanowski, Constantinos J Lovoulos,

A 49-year-old man presented with chest pain and was found to have hemorrhage and drainage from a chest wound secondary to disseminated tuberculosis involving the sternum and ankle. He then developed acute hemorrhage from an innominate artery pseudoaneurysm originating just below a severely diseased sternoclavicular junction. A staged approach was ... Read more >>

An intriguing co-existence: atrial myxoma and cerebral cavernous malformations: case report and review of literature.

Shikha Sharma, Daniel Tsyvine, Pierre D Maldjian, Justin T Sambol, Constantinos J Lovoulos, Gal Levy, Amin Maghari, Marc Klapholz, Muhamed Saric,

It is commonly postulated that neurologic complications of atrial myxomas are due to either direct tumor embolization or mycotic aneurysm of cerebral vasculature or rupture of mycotic aneurysms of cerebral arteries. However, the authors report the case of 63-year-old woman with a large left atrial myxoma whose progressive left-sided weakness ... Read more >>

Hyperplastic cellular remodeling of the media in ascending thoracic aortic aneurysms.

Paul C Y Tang, Michael A Coady, Constantinos Lovoulos, Alan Dardik, Mihaela Aslan, John A Elefteriades, George Tellides,

BACKGROUND: Progressive medial degeneration and atrophy is thought to be a cause of ascending thoracic aortic aneurysms in the elderly. Extensive apoptosis of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) has been demonstrated in the media of abdominal aortic aneurysms. We investigated whether medial atrophy from loss of VSMCs occurs in primary ... Read more >>

Right ventricle-sparing heart transplantation effective against iatrogenic pulmonary hypertension.

Constantinos Lovoulos, Shawn Tittle, Lee Goldstein, David J Austin, Simran Singh, Edward Rocco, James Keane, Ping Tang, Gary S Kopf, John A Elefteriades,

BACKGROUND: Right heart failure is the predominant cause of death following heart transplantation, occurring with disturbingly high frequency in patients with severe antecedent pulmonary hypertension. We have recently reported a novel technique of heart transplantation that spares the recipient right ventricle, excising only the recipient left ventricle. The resulting model ... Read more >>

Aortic arch replacement for recurrent cerebral embolization.

Gilead Lancaster, Constantinos J Lovoulos, Michael Moussouttas, Andrew H Goldstein, Dana Leifer, Pierre B Fayad, Drew Olsen, John A Elefteriades,

Replacement of the aortic arch for atheroma with cerebral embolization is in its infancy. The appropriateness of such intervention is controversial. Over a 10-month period, a 58-year-old woman suffered multiple debilitating cerebral vascular accidents manifested by motor, sensory, and memory deficits and documented by computed tomographic scanning and magnetic resonance ...
