In a patient with a large ventricular septal defect and right ventricular hypertrophy an apparent aneurysm of the membranous ventricular septum was seen in a left ventricular angiogram. At surgery no aneurysm was found, but a massive hypertrophy of the crista supraventricularis enclosed a small cavity adjacent to the ventricular septal defect. In the angiogram this simulated an aneurysm.

    Two cases of aneurysm of membranous septum (AMS) in adults are presented, both of which support the hypothesis that it may be the mechanism of spontaneous closure of ventricular septal defects (VSDs). In one case, a trivial residual VSD persisted. In the second case, serial catheterization...

    Background: With the increasing use of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT), the number of incidentally detected ventricular septal aneurysms (VSAs) in adults has increased. However, to date, there are not sufficient well-organized data regarding VSAs in adults on MDCT. Purpose: To evaluate...

    Growth differentiation factor-15 (GDF-15) has been identified as an endogenous anti-hypertrophy effect. However, the association of plasma GDF-15 levels with left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) in hypertension is poorly understood. We investigate the effect of plasma GDF-15 levels on left...
