Single ventricle cases

Case Study
Powell, Andrew, M.D. Boston, Children's Hospital Boston USA
Geva, Tal Boston, Children's Hospital Boston USA

MR examination of patient 1:

 

ECG-triggered B-TFE cine MR in a patient with double-inlet single left ventricle. Axial (A) and short-axis (B) planes.

 

Note that both mitral (MV) and tricuspid valves (TV) enter the left ventricle (LV), which is characterized by a smooth septal surface (arrow). The bulboventricular foramen (*) provides an exit from the LV to the infundibulum (Inf).

MR examination of patient 2:

 

3D MRA of an infant with palliated hypoplastic left heart syndrome before bidirectional Glenn shunt.

 

(A) Subvolume maximum intensity projection in an oblique axial plane shows a conduit (*) from the right ventricle (RV) to the pulmonary arteries.

 

DAo- descending aorta; LPA= left pulmonary artery; RPA= right pulmonary artery; SVC= superior vena cava.

 

(B) 3D volume reconstruction in the same patient shows the conduit (arrow) as well as the anastomosis between the main pulmonary artery and the reconstructed neo-aorta.
