Transcript of Dextrocardia

Congenital Dextrocardia
with Situs Inversus Leah, Rachel, Julia and Heather Developmental Pathogenesis Diagnosis and Treatment Diagnosis Treatment Potential Contributing Factor? Embryological Development What is Dextrocardia? Chamber Pathology Defining Terms Pathology of Dextrocardia "Dextro" - Right
"Cardia" - Heart
"Situs" - Position
"Inversus" - Asymmetric Dextrocardia is a congenital cardiac malformation http://nathansprayer.com/2009/03/26/dextrocardia/ Heart a MIRROR IMAGE
CONGENITAL cardiac malformation & malposition
INTRINSIC to heart
Apex points RIGHT What’s wrong with this picture? Screening Ultrasounds
Fetal Echocardiography X-rays
Bronchial Morphology
Surgical Procedures
ECG Autopsy Fetal Later in Life Dextrocardia
Fontan Procedure
Diaphragm hernia repair
Patent ductus ligation
Blalock-Taussig shunt
Ventricular septal defect closure
Ladd’s procedure
Lower lung lobectomy Dextrocardia with other Congenital Defects Fontan Prevalence and Prognosis Catherine O’hara Symptoms Absolutely Nothing!
Respiratory Distress
Systolic Murmur
Cardiac disease
Gastric symptoms Randy Foye Positive correlation exists between Dextrocardia and Situs Inversus Genetic Component? Cockayne (1938) suggested that situs inversus has Mendelian autosomal recessive inheritance
Generational distribution within family
Affected monozygotic twins http://www.nlm.nih.gov/ RL Kartagener’s Syndrome
Present in 25% of cases
Triad of situs inversus, sinusitis, and bronchiectasis
Widespread ciliary disorder
Ciliary action key to heart looping LL QUESTIONS? 3:1 Ration of women vs men
2.5:1 Ratio of men vs women
Estimated incidence in 1947 was between 1 in 35,000 to 1 in 6,000
In 2010 incidence was reported to be 1 in 10,000
In 5,539 fetal echocardiograms 85 cases of dextrocardia were seen.
