In addition, the US FDA approval for the GORE CARDIOFORM Septal Occluder was supported by positive results from the Gore REDUCE Clinical Study, which demonstrated its safety and efficacy with a Gore device plus antiplatelet therapy compared to antiplatelet therapy alone in patients with a PFO, revealed the company.
The mechanism may be associated with improper placement of the occluder on the tricuspid septal leaflets, migration of the occluder, shape memory of nithinol wires, or rupture of the chordae tendineae18.
The present study was designed to determine the role of septal nuclei in modulating sexual behavior as very little experimental evidence is available on the effect of the septal lesion on sexual behavior in male rats.
The study included 52 patients who had nasal septal deviation.
(3) Anatomic causes include inferior turbinate hypertrophy, septal deviation, and nasal valve dysfunction.
Hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a disease characterized by hypertrophy of the interventricular septum, obstruction of left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT), and frequently, systolic anterior motion (SAM) of the mitral valve.[1],[2],[3] Although medical intervention can provide relief of symptoms, a considerable number of patients with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy remain symptomatic, and in these participants, invasive interventions such as percutaneous transluminal septal myocardial ablation (PTSMA) and modified Morrow septal myectomy (MMSM) are established treatment options.[4],[5] Extended septal myectomy can significantly relieve obstruction of LVOT and improve main complaints.[6],[7],[8] However, experience with myectomy is limited at many centers.

Low-risk cardiogenic embolic cerebral infarction was determined if mitral stenosis, patent foramen ovale and atrial septal defect were observed, and high-risk cardiogenic embolic cerebral infarction was determined if severe left ventricular dysfunction, aortic atherosclerosis, left atrium tumor, severe mitral valve injury and left ventricular thrombus were observed.
Mohammad Kashif Shaikh informed about the diagnosis of an Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) in a newborn or an older child should prompt consultation with a pediatric cardiologist.
Since our patient had a rather large ASD that did not have sufficient residual septal rim tissue, percutaneous and robotic approaches were not feasible.
