Isolated tricuspid valve endocarditis is the least common endocarditis with an incidence of 5 to 10% in the literature. It is usually described in drug abusers and as a complication of nosocomial infections (catheter, post-surgery...). We present the case of a 70 year-old patient admitted for a fever of unknown origin lasting for 2 months. He had an isolated tricuspid endocarditis with Enterococcus faecalis. We review the diagnostic criterias predisposing factors and treatment of right-sided valvular endocarditis, particularly the endocarditis produced by Enterococcus faecalis, a rare etiopathogenic agent of tricuspid endocarditis.

Uncommon but classically described, intestinal carcinoid tumors represent a variety of neuroendocrine tumors. Able to secrete amines and hormones, they can produce characteristic symptoms called "carcinoid syndrome". A cardiopathy is sometimes associated with the disease and carries a high risk of mortality and morbidity. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether dobutamine stress tests (DST) can be used to detect cardiac dysfunction in dogs with early left ventricular dysfunction (ELVD) induced by rapid right ventricular pacing (RRVP). ANIMALS: 7 adult male Beagles. PROCEDURE: A pacemaker was surgically implanted in each dog at the level of the right ventricular apex. Electrocardiography, Doppler sphygmomanometry, and Doppler echocardiography were performed before and during a DST prior to activation of the pacemaker and every 3 to 4 days during the period of RRVP. Dobutamine stress tests were performed by infusing dobutamine at incremental dosages ranging from 12.5 to 42.5 microg/kg of body weight/min. RESULTS: Clinical signs of congestive heart failure were not observed during the pacing period. However, all dogs developed ELVD associated with significant changes in values for most Doppler echocardiographic variables obtained prior to DST Adverse cardiac effects were not detected during DST. Most Doppler echocardiographic indices of cardiac function were significantly altered in response to dobutamine infusion during the pacing period, compared with prepacing values. However, a dobutamine-induced 2-fold increase in cardiac output was maintained. CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Dobutamine stress tests can be safely performed in dogs with experimentally induced ELVD. Dobutamine stress tests may be a sensitive, noninvasive diagnostic method, complementary to standard clinical examinations, for detection of early cardiac dysfunction in dogs asymptomatic for dilated cardiomyopathy.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate left and right ventricular filling and ejection performances by use of Doppler echocardiography in healthy, conscious dogs submitted to dobutamine stress testing. ANIMALS: 10 unsedated, healthy adult Beagles. PROCEDURE: Doppler echocardiography was performed during cardiac stress testing on each dog twice at 24-hour intervals. Dobutamine was infused in 10 micrograms/kg of body weight/min incremental dosages, from 12.5 to 42.5 micrograms/kg/min. Duration of each step was 15 minutes. Doppler measurements were recorded at baseline and at each stage of dobutamine infusion, whereas aortic diameter was measured at baseline and at peak dosage by use of two-dimensional echocardiography. RESULTS: Dobutamine infusion induced a significant increase in velocity time integrals and in peak flow velocities at the aortic, pulmonic, mitral, and tricuspid valves. Acceleration time-to-deceleration time ratio at the aortic wave also was increased significantly. On the other hand, ejection time, acceleration time, and deceleration time at the aortic and pulmonic valves and peak flow velocity of the E wave-to-peak flow velocity of the A wave ratio at the mitral and tricuspid valves decreased significantly during the test. The acceleration time-to-deceleration time ratio at the pulmonic wave was unchanged. A significant, progressive increase in cardiac index also was observed during dobutamine infusion, with a maximal increase of 104% from baseline. This was mediated initially by an increase in stroke index and, at higher dosages, by an increase in heart rate. CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Doppler echocardiography performed during dobutamine stress testing may be a reliable method of assessing myocardial function in dogs with cardiovascular disease.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate response of various cardiovascular variables after administration of incremental doses of dobutamine in healthy conscious dogs, using standardized dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE). ANIMALS: 8 healthy dogs. PROCEDURE: A DSE was performed twice on each dog within 24 hours. Dobutamine was infused at a rate of 12.5 to 42.5 microg/kg/min, using incremental increases of 10 microg/kg/min. Doppler sphygmomanometry, electrocardiography, and echocardiography were performed. Left ventricular size, global ventricular performance, and left ventricular systolic myocardial function were measured by means of echocardiography. RESULTS: At the highest dosage, dobutamine induced an increase of 20+/-3% and 109+/-12% in systolic blood pressure and cardiac index, respectively. The latter was associated with a significant increase in heart rate and stroke index. Fractional shortening of the left ventricle, fractional thickening of the left ventricular free wall and interventricular septum, ejection fraction, and mean velocity of fiber shortening had a progressive and significant increase during dobutamine infusion. Preejection period and left ventricular ejection time had a progressive and significative decrease during the stress test. CONCLUSIONS: The technique used was feasable, safe, and repeatable in healthy conscious dogs. Control values were determined. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Data for these healthy dogs might be useful for comparison with results obtained from dogs with known or suspected cardiovascular disease. [less ▲]

A case of successful tricuspid valve replacement with a mechanical prosthesis and pulmonary valvulotomy for carcinoid heart disease is reported. The patient was a 61 years old women. The primary tumor was in the terminal ileum. Liver metastasis and carcinoid syndrome were present since 8 years. After cardiac surgery, the patient survived 38 months and late death was related to disseminated metastasis. Even in case of metastasis, carcinoid tumor is slow growing. Without cardiac operation for correction of valvular lesions, terminal symptoms and death may often be related to cardiac operation for correction of valvular lesions, terminal symptoms and death may often be related to cardiac failure rather than to tumoral growth. Thus, even in presence of metastasis, cardiac surgery may be mandatory to improve both quality of life and survival. [less ▲]

We present four children from two families with the typical 11q- phenotype resulting from an unbalanced segregation of a parental translocation. In the first family, the father had a 46,XY,t(5;11)(q24;q23.3) constitution. The father of the three other children had a 46,XY,t(11;17)(q23;p13) translocation. Despite associated partial deletion, three of the children had a typical 11q- phenotype. The fourth one, whose pregnancy was terminated in the second trimester, had a hypoplastic left heart but no other considered gross anomalies. A review of 36 previous cases, including 5 due to translocations (4 familial rearrangements, and 1 of unknown origin) is given with emphasis on the relationships between break-points and phenotype. Undescribed manifestations in our patients include agenesis of corpus callosum adactyly and malrotation of the gut. [less ▲]

We report the prenatal diagnosis of Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome (4p-) in a 24-week-old fetus. Echographic features included cystic hygroma, a complex heart defect with right ventricular hypoplasia, and a large placental chorioangioma. We suggest that chorioangioma may be associated with chromosomal imbalance and that systematic careful morphologic examination of the fetus and karyotyping of any pregnancy in which large chorioangioma is detected is advisable. Jugular lymphatic obstruction sequence has not been reported so far in association with 4p-syndrome. [less ▲]
