İnferior vena kava kesintisi ve azigos devamlılığı bulunan bir çocukta başarılı gizli aksesuar yol ablasyonu: Olgu sunumu

Inferior vena kavanın infrahepatik kesintisi ve azigos devamlılığı, konjenital kalp hastalığı olgularının %0.6'sında görülmektedir. Bu anomalinin başlıca önemi, kompleks kalp defektleriyle birlikte olabilmesi ve kalp kateterizasyonunda zorluğa neden olmasıdır. Bu yazıda bu anomali bulunan 6 yaşında bir çocukta sağ posteroseptal gizli aksesuar yol ablasyonu deneyimimiz sunulmaktadır.

Successfuly radiofrequency ablation of concealed accessory pathway in a child with interrupted inferior vena cava and azygos continuation: A case report

Azygos continuation is seen in 0.6% of patients with congenital heart disease. The major significance of this anomaly lies in its association with complex cardiac defects and the technical difficulty that can accompany cardiac catheterization. We report our experience with successful catheter ablation of a right posteroseptal concealed accessory pathway (AP) in a 6-year-old boy with infrahepatic interruption of the inferior vena cava and azygos continuation.
