Small remnants of the right valve of the sinus venosus are commonly found in adults, but the incidence and risk associated with these embryonic remnants in neonates are not well studied. The following report describes a cyanotic neonate with a large Eustachian valve remnant creating a functional cor triatriatum dexter who was initially diagnosed with persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn. The cyanosis in this infant improved over the first postnatal week with conservative management, but she suffered multifocal subcortical stroke, likely related to her intracardiac shunt.

Cardiac variant of total anomalous pulmonary venous return is a rare entity, whereby all the pulmonary veins drain directly to the right atrium or coronary sinus. The effective left heart blood flow channels through a small stretched patent foramen ovale and can often be confused with a variant of cor triatriatum. Cor triatriatum is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly where pulmonary veins drain to a persistent chamber above the left atrium with a membrane separating these two.

The coexistence of an atrial septal defect and a prominent eustachian valve is a rare congenital anomaly, rarely reported in literature. Differentiation between a giant eustachian valve and cor triatriatum dexter can be difficult. A case of a large atrial septal defect associated with cor triatriatum dexter diagnosed by echocardiography in an asymptomatic woman is reported.

Cor triatriatum sinister is a rare congenital lesion encountered in children. It consists of a fibromuscular membrane that separates the left atrium into two chambers resulting in a triatrial heart and often occurs with other structural cardiac anomalies. The acquired form is uncommon and has only been reported after orthotopic heart transplantation or as a complication of infective endocarditis in adults.

Congenital heart disease can be difficult to diagnose in infants because they often present with nonspecific symptoms. Their clinical presentation can resemble that of respiratory infections or sepsis, yet typical treatments for these conditions such as fluid resuscitation may worsen their course. We report a case of an 8-week-old boy who had several weeks of viral symptoms and eventually presented to the emergency department in shock.

Three's a Crowd - An Extremely Rare Case of Cor Triatriatum Dexter.

J La State Med Soc 2017 Mar-Apr;169(2):50-51. Epub 2017 Apr 15.
A Elagizi, R Marvin, G O'Bryan, V Vyas, L Arcement
Cor triatriatum is a congenital cardiac anomaly in which the left (sinister) or right (dexter) atrium is divided into two compartments by residual embryonic tissue, resulting in a tri-atrial heart. As cor triatriatum dextrum can present clinically in various ways and have multiple associated cardiac anomalies, this report attempts to contribute to what is known about this exceedingly rare disorder.
A 40 year old Hispanic man with a medical history of gastritis presented with complaints of palpitations, dizziness and bilateral lower extremity edema.

Cor triatriatum sinister is a very rare cardiac anomaly that may lead to pulmonary hypertension, right ventricular dilation, and eventually right heart failure. We report a case of a toddler who presented with respiratory distress and cardiomegaly and was found to have cor triatriatum sinister with a restrictive communication, decompressing vertical vein, pulmonary hypertension, severe tricuspid regurgitation, and severe right ventricular dysfunction. She underwent a successful surgical repair, with normalisation of right ventricular function and pulmonary artery pressure.

Hyaluronan (HA) is required for endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition and normal heart development in the mouse. Heart abnormalities in hyaluronidase 2 (HYAL2)-deficient () mice and humans suggested removal of HA is also important for normal heart development. We have performed longitudinal studies of heart structure and function inmice to determine when, and how, HYAL2 deficiency leads to these abnormalities.

Mitral inflow obstruction caused by dilated coronary sinus is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly that must be differentiated from other causes of left ventricular inflow obstruction such as cor triatriatum, supramitral membrane, and supramitral ridge, because their surgical repair is different. Although preoperative transthoracic echocardiography is the primary imaging modality for diagnosis, intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography has a higher sensitivity and specificity over transthoracic echocardiography in differentiating these lesions. We report 2 cases of supramitral obstruction where the intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography has refined the preoperative diagnosis and changed the course of surgical repair.

Orofacial clefting is amongst the most common of birth defects, with both genetic and environmental components. Although numerous studies have been undertaken to investigate the complexities of the genetic etiology of this heterogeneous condition, this factor remains incompletely understood. Here, we describe mutations in the HYAL2 gene as a cause of syndromic orofacial clefting.

There are multiple cardiac etiologies for wheezing and respiratory distress which require a high degree of suspicion for the pediatrician to diagnose. We present a case of a patient with a history of long-standing mild persistent asthma with minimal improvement on controller and bronchodilator therapies who presented to the emergency room with acute respiratory distress. When he demonstrated a lack of improvement with traditional respiratory therapies, additional etiologies of respiratory distress were considered.

Cor triatriatum sinister (CTS) is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly and is mainly corrected through conventional surgery through sternotomy. We described our successful novel surgical technique of totally robotic correction of CTS in one case of CTS with concomitant repair of atrial septal defect using da Vinci SI Surgical System (Intuitive Surgical, Inc, Sunnyvale, CA USA) with excellent surgical outcome. We conclude that robotic correction of CTS is a feasible and safe alternative to conventional surgical technique.

Cor Triatriatum: A Review.

Semin Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2017 Jun 19;21(2):178-185. Epub 2017 Apr 19.
Ajay Kumar Jha, Neeti Makhija
Cor triatriatum is a rare congenital cardiac anomaly defined by an abnormal septation within the atrium (left or right) leading to inflow obstruction to the respective ventricles. It exists either in isolated classical form or may be associated with simple to complex congenital cardiac anomalies. Several anatomical variants exist even in the classical form, and therefore, it may require multimodal diagnostic modalities to characterize and differentiate for better percutaneous interventional or surgical planning.

Cor triatriatum sinister (CTS) is a rare congenital abnormality. Clinical presentation of patients with CTS mainly depends on the anatomic features of membrane and may vary from mild or moderate symptoms mimicking mitral stenosis to more severe and complicated cardioembolic stroke or a new onset heart failure. We herein have reported on a young male who presented with the signs and symptoms of mitral stenosis and was diagnosed as CTS with gradient on the orifice of the membrane after transthrocacic echocardiography.

Balloon dilation was performed in two Rottweiler puppies with cor triatriatum dexter and clinical signs of ascites using transthoracic echocardiographic guidance. The dogs were positioned on a standard echocardiography table in right lateral recumbency, and guide wires and balloon catheters were imaged by echocardiographic views optimized to allow visualization of the defect. The procedures were performed successfully without complications and clinical signs were resolved completely in both cases.

A 33-day-old infant with obstructed cor triatriatum sinister and partial anomalous pulmonary venous drainage presented with respiratory distress and fever. Her suprasystemic pulmonary hypertension was relieved by opening the connection to the right atrium using balloon atrial septoplasty and septostomy, and to the inferior chamber using balloon dilation of a fenestration in the dividing membrane. This enabled extubation and discharge, with elective surgical repair at 2 months.

Cor triatrium is a rare congenital heart disease typically diagnosed amongst very young patients. Delayed diagnosis in the elderly is much more unusual. We report the case of a 59-year-old male with unremarkable medical history in whom we have discovered, on an echocardiography performed for an exploration of transient ischemic accident with atrial fibrillation, a particular form of an isolated cor triatrium dextrum investigated with multimodality imaging.

The levoatrial cardinal vein (LACV), first described in 1926, acts as a decompressing vessel for pulmonary venous return in cases of severe left-sided obstruction with an intact or significantly restrictive atrial septum. The LACV and the persistent left superior vena cava (LSVC) are thought to share similar embryologic origins. To challenge this notion, we present a unique case of a neonate with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, cor triatriatum, and a decompressing LACV in the presence of bilateral superior venae cavae.

Pulmonary hemosiderosis is a disorder with unknown cause and characterized by hemosiderin appreciation in alveolar interstitium from decomposed hemoglobin following alveolar capillary bleeding, which finally leads to pulmonary fibrosis. It can be divided into primary and secondary types in terms of its etiology. While primary types are related to autoimmunity, secondary types can be associated with cardiovascular and pulmonary causes such as mitral stenosis leading to pulmonary congestion.

Cor-triatriatum dexter is an extremely rare congenital heart defect in which there is complete persistence of the right valve of embryonic sinus venosus that results in partitioning of the right atrium into a smooth and trabeculated portion. The smooth portion receives venous blood from inferior vena cava, superior vena cava, and coronary sinus while the trabeculated portion contains the right atrial appendage and the opening of tricuspid valve. We report a 1-week-old child who presented with intermittent episodes of central cyanosis.

Ioanna Dima, Aparna Deshpande
A 17-year-old boy with primary cardiac diagnosis of cor triatriatum, atrial septal defect (ASD) and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) was referred for a cardiac MRI. He was operated on at 3 months of age with correction of the above-mentioned defects. During follow-up, on echocardiogram, he gradually developed moderate right ventricular dilation with preserved systolic function and a trace of tricuspid regurgitation.

Cor triatriatum dexter (CTD) is a congenital anomaly in which the right atrium is divided into two parts by a membrane or fibromuscular band. Incomplete separation of the right atrium may occur when prominent venous valve remnants such as Eustachian valve (EV) or Chiari network (CN) incompletely divided the right atrium (incomplete CTD-iCTD). We sought to assess the incidence of EV/CN and iCTD and its clinical and technical implications in patients submitted to interatrial shunt transcatheter closure.

Anatomic variants of the remnants of the right valve of the sinus venosus in adults are common and usually observed on cardiac imaging studies. Because the anatomy and function of these vestiges are not well known, errors may occur in the differential diagnosis and treatment of patients with unclear images in the right atrium. Clinical implications may arise from (1) differential diagnosis with some diseases, especially when the remnants act as sites of attachment for masses; (2) the need for invasive treatment if the anatomic variant displays obstructive behavior; (3) the association between remnants and patent foramen ovale; and (4) secondary complications related to these structures in invasive procedures.
