    Title Echocardiography Allows Safer Venous Cannulation During Excision of Large Right Atrial Masses.
    Date March 1998
    Journal The Annals of Thoracic Surgery
    Excerpt

    BACKGROUND: Excision of large right atrial masses requires bicaval cannulation and cardiopulmonary bypass. Safe venous cannulation can be accomplished only by knowing the exact intracavitary location and extension of the mass to avoid fragmentation. Transthoracic echocardiography and intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography, although helpful, cannot always define the exact intracavitary relationships of the tumor. METHODS: We have used both intraoperative transesophageal and epicardial echocardiography to guide venous cannulation in 4 patients with large right atrial masses. Both echo images are used by the surgeon to select the exact site and method of cannulation to avoid fragmentation of the mass. Epicardial echocardiography complemented the images obtained by transesophageal echocardiography. RESULTS: The technique of combined transesophageal and epicardial echocardiography allowed safe venous cannulation in all 4 patients. Each of the right atrial masses was safely excised using case-specific cannulation techniques guided by the echocardiographic images. CONCLUSIONS: We propose the routine use of both intraoperative transesophageal and epicardial echocardiography in guiding venous cannulation for safe excision of large right atrial masses.

    Title Isolation of Enterobacter Aerogenes Susceptible to Beta-lactam Antibiotics Despite High Level Beta-lactamase Production.
    Date May 1991
    Journal European Journal of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases : Official Publication of the European Society of Clinical Microbiology
    Excerpt

    This report describes a patient with nosocomial meningitis from whom four distinct isolates of Enterobacter aerogenes were recovered over a complicated course of chemotherapy. The initial isolate was susceptible to expanded spectrum beta-lactams despite constitutive production of high levels of beta-lactamase. Resistant isolates recovered during antibiotic therapy had lost a 42,000 outer membrane protein. These data suggest that b-lactam susceptibility in the original isolate was due to "hyperpermeability" mediated by the 42,000 Dalton protein.

    Title Diagnosis of Partial Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection with Intact Interatrial Septum by Echocardiography.
    Date
    Journal Echocardiography (mount Kisco, N.y.)
    Excerpt

    This case illustrates the complementary use of transthoracic echocardiography and transesophageal echocardiography in the diagnosis of partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection. The transthoracic echocardiogram suggested the presence of anomalous pulmonary venous return by demonstrating right heart volume overload and evidence of an intact atrial septum. Transesophageal echocardiography was required to confirm these findings and provide a firm anatomic diagnosis before surgery. This case also emphasizes that a high degree of clinical suspicion for this condition should occur in situations in which apparent right heart volume overload is otherwise unexplained.
