Case Report

Single Operator Percutaneous Balloon Mitral Valvotomy with Subsequent Device Closure of Atrial Septal Defect in a Case of Lutembacher Syndrome under Trans-Esophageal Echocardiography Guidance

Sanjay Rajdev*, MD, DM, FACC

Lutembacher Syndrome is an uncommon disease entity. Case reports of non- surgical treatment using team approach have been described. We describe our experience in a patient where a single operator carried out the entire procedure using Trans-esophageal guidance, periodically switching between the catheterization laboratory table and the echocardiography machine to guide the procedure. Logistic difficulties in developing world lead to inevitable modifications to overcome difficult circumstance. Twin procedure in the case described was done safely and effectively as a modification of the standard procedure.

Case Report

Anemia of Inflammation in the Elderly Patients. The Significance of Measuring Serum Level of Hepcidin25- for Diagnosis, and the Therapy with Peroral and Intravenous Iron Administration

Kenji Shinohara*

The illustrative cases of patients with Anemia of inflammation ( AI ) encountered in the outpatient clinic in the rural area in Japan during a year were retrospectively studied. AI was diagnosed based on normocytic and normochromic anemia with low serum iron (Fe) and elevated ferritin levels, with or without elevated inflammatory markers such as C-reactive protein (CRP) and interleukin-6 (IL-6). Six patients were diagnosed with AI. Serum levels of hepcidin-25 were markedly elevated in 5 patients and slightly elevated in 1 patient.

Case Report

Integrated Imaging in a Bronchobiliary Fistula after Radiofrequency Ablation Treatment

D’Amora Marilina*, Molino Antonio, Maresca Domenico, Mormile Mauro, Guarino Carmine, Rea Gaetano, Valente Tullio

The bronchobiliary fistula (BBF) consists of an abnormal communication between the bronchial tree and the biliary tract that might arise as a result of an iatrogenic complication of a radiofrequency ablation treatment of liver metastases. A 74-year-old patient, who had been treated with radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for liver metastases, came to our attention with green sputum and bitter saliva.
