Right atrial isomerism or left atrial isomerism is frequently diagnosed as situs ambiguous without further discrimination of the specific morbid anatomy. Thirty six. OMIM: Right atrial isomerism is a severe complex congenital heart defect resulting from embryonic disruption of proper left-right axis determination. Abstract. Objectives. We sought to determine, in a large series of patients with right atrial isomerism, factors associated with mortality. Background. Right atrial.

In a cohort of 2, probands with congenital heart disease, comprising 2, parent-offspring trios and singletons, Jin et al.
OMIM Entry – # – RIGHT ATRIAL ISOMERISM; RAI
Chen and Monteleone reported 2 affected boys in one family and 2 first cousins in another. To test the possibility of mutations in other parts of the CX43 gene, the gene was located on the physical map of chromosome 6, and flanking polymorphic markers were genotyped.
Familial clustering of situs inversus totalis, and asplenia and polysplenia syndromes. Two discrete atrioventricular valves were significantly more common in left atrial isomerism. Clinical Synopsis Toggle Dropdown. Associated Data Supplementary Materials.
Clinical implications of atrial isomerism.
The authors noted that most cases are sporadic. Congenital absence of the spleen is usually accompanied by complex cardiac malformations, malposition and maldevelopment of the abdominal organs, and abnormal lobation of the lungs. Consanguinity and complex cardiac anomalies with situs ambiguus. Isoomerism atrial isomerism or isomerisj atrial isomerism is frequently diagnosed as situs ambiguous without further discrimination of the specific morbid anatomy. Anomalous pulmonary venous return is frequent.
Ivemark syndrome in siblings. Absence of mutations in the regulatory domain of the gap junction protein connexin 43 in patients with visceroatrial heterotaxy. The association of a laterality sequence with caudal deficiency may represent a distinct autosomal isomreism entity. In the second case, the syndrome was diagnosed prenatally by fetal echocardiography at 20 weeks. Asplenia and polysplenia have similar cardiac anomalies, although asplenia tends to be associated with severe atrioventricular canal malformations and marked deficiency of the interventricular septum whereas with polysplenia the AV canal defects are usually less severe and there are greater abnormalities of the interatrial septum Hutchins et al.
This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Cardiac defects include atrial and ventricular septal defects, pulmonic stenosis, endocardial cushion defects, and others.
Familial splenic anomaly syndrome. Using linkage analysis and a candidate gene approach, Kaasinen et al.
A patient with the typical asplenia syndrome had a sib who at autopsy showed izomerism accessory spleens, persistent atrioventricularis communis and partial transposition of the abdominal viscera Polhemus and Schafer, Syndromes of asplenia and polysplenia: Other entities represented in this entry: Thirty six cases of right atrial isomerism and seven cases of left atrial isomerism were collected from the records and pathological museum at the National Taiwan University Hospital.
Right atrial isomerism is a severe complex congenital heart defect resulting from embryonic isomerixm of proper left-right axis isoerism. Familial polysplenia and cardiovascular defects. Fig 3 on p. Assessment afrial total anomalous pulmonary venous connection by two-dimensional echocardiography. Atrioventricular valve regurgitation was detected in 14 cases. Return of blood from the lower part of the body is by the azygous or hemiazygous system, a venous defect that occurs almost only in this syndrome.
Ztrial selecting cases of cardiac malformation associated with absence of a spleen, Ivemark postulated that the uniformity of the material is based upon selecting the period when organogenesis of the heart went astray, rather than on similarities in morphology of the malformed hearts.
Both the brother and the sister had dextrocardia; however, only the girl had situs viscerum inversus. In another family, 3 sibs had asplenia with cyanotic heart disease Ruttenberg et al. Patients with LAI may have polysplenia and bilateral bilobed lungs, as well as atral inversus affecting other organs. Abstract Right atrial isomerism or left atrial isomerism is frequently diagnosed as situs ambiguous without further discrimination of the specific morbid anatomy.
Double outlet right ventricle was the most common type of ventriculoarterial connection.
Failure to detect connexin43 mutations in 38 cases of sporadic and familial heterotaxy.
One of the 4 had transposition of the great vessels. Although the prognosis is poor, successful operation depends on knowledge of the precise anatomical arrangement associated with atrial isomerism.
Familial situs inversus and congenital heart defects. Ivemark described the pathology of the splenic agenesis syndrome and reported 14 new cases with autopsy, as well as 55 cases collected from the literature.
CC HPO: A developmental complex of bilateral “left-sidedness”. Asplenia and polysplenia syndromes with abnormalities of lateralization in a sibship. Two sibs had no surgery and died as newborns; 2 had cardiac surgery and died before 2 years of age. All 4 succumbed isomerrism underwent autopsy. A common atrioventricular valve was the most frequent mode of connection in both forms. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. The hepatic segment of the inferior vena cava is often isomeeism.
