5 The factors influencing the clinical presentation and prognosis of the coronary to pulmonary artery
fistula (CPAF) are the size of the communication, the amount of blood drained through it, the resistance of the recipient chamber, and development of myocardial ischaemia or infarction.
92% of pulmonary artery
abnormalities in patients of TOF according to the study by Sheikh et al12, taking level of significance 5.
Stenosis was present at the pulmonary artery
in 13 patients, who underwent balloon dilation.
sarcoma masquerading as chronic pulmonary thromboembolism.
Perry and Scott (22) have reported anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery
in 11 patients at the Children's Hospital of the District of Columbia from 1946 to 1969.
Observation indexes: Indexes of pulmonary arterial systolic pressure, mean pulmonary arterial pressure, aortic systolic pressure, mean aortic pressure, left atrium diameter (LAD), left ventricular end- diastolic diameter (LVEDD), pulmonary artery
diameter (PAD) and left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) were observed before and after surgery.
dissection occurs in both sexes with a slight female predominance (male:female 1:1.
Non-invasive imaging methods used to detect pulmonary artery
dissection are transthoracic echocardiogram11,12, CT scanning,9 MRI13 and pulmonary arteriography.
This procedure allows the left ventricle to develop as the systemic ventricle, patches the VSD to direct blood flow from LV through the aorta, closes the congenitally stenotic pulmonic valve, and uses a grafted conduit between the right ventricle and pulmonary artery
to direct blood to the lungs for oxygenation.
A diagnosis of HSS was made on the basis of pulmonary artery
aneurysms and IVC thrombosis in a young male patient, without clinical findings consistent with BD.
Clearly, experience of echocardiographer as well as equipment quality is critical for a better visual station of the pulmonary artery
The CTA revealed that the left coronary artery (LCA) arose from the postero-lateral aspect of the main pulmonary artery
(PA) (a diagnostic hallmark), just beyond the pulmonary valve (Figures 2 and 3).
