64. Case Report: RV Infarction Treated with RVAD Support – Houston Methodist

Read more
CardioNerds (Amit Goyal & Daniel Ambinder) join Houston Methodist cardiology fellows (Isaac Tea, Stephanie Fuentes, Peter Rothstein) for a trip to Hermann Park! They discuss a challenging case of right ventricular (RV) infarction leading to acute RV failure treated with right ventricular assist device (RVAD) support. Dr. Mahwash Kassi provides the E-CPR and program director Dr. Stephen Little provides a message for applicants. Episode notes were developed by Johns Hopkins internal medicine resident Tommy Das with mentorship from University of Maryland cardiology fellow Karan Desai.

The CardioNerds Cardiology Case Reports series shines light on the hidden curriculum of medical storytelling. We learn together while discussing fascinating cases in this fun, engaging, and educational format. Each episode ends with an “Expert CardioNerd Perspectives & Review” (E-CPR) for a nuanced teaching from a content expert. We truly believe that hearing about a patient is the singular theme that unifies everyone at every level, from the student to the professor emeritus.
We are teaming up with the ACC FIT Section to use the #CNCR episodes to showcase CV education across the country in the era of virtual recruitment. As part of the recruitment series, each episode features fellows from a given program discussing and teaching about an interesting case as well as sharing what makes their hearts flutter about their fellowship training. The case discussion is followed by both an E-CPR segment and a message from the program director.

Patient Summary
A man in his early 70s with ASCVD risk factors and known CAD (PCI to proximal LAD 4 years prior) presented with typical angina refractory to maximal medical therapy. A nuclear stress test showed a reversible perfusion defect in the RCA territory, and he was referred for PCI. Coronary angiogram showed severe stenosis of the proximal RCA and a DES was successfully deployed with TIMI 3 flow, though several large acute marginal branches were jailed.  
The night following PCI, the patient developed bradycardia, hypotension, and tachypnea. Physical exam showed newly elevated JVP, lower extremity edema, and bibasilar crackles without a new cardiac murmur. ECG showed ST elevation in V1-V4, and bedside echocardiogram showed a severely dilated RV with decreased systolic function. With concern for acute RV failure, the patient was fluid resuscitated, started on dopamine for chronotropy, and was admitted to the CCU. A Swan-Ganz catheter was placed, showing a CVP 12, RV 41/15, PA 36/20 (25), PCWP 18, CI 1.6 (by Fick method). The calculated PAPi was 0.84.  
The patient was transitioned to dobutamine to improve RV inotropy, epinephrine in the setting of hypotension, and inhaled nitric oxide in an attempt to decrease RV afterload. Despite these interventions, the patient had worsening shock, anuric renal failure requiring CVVH, and respiratory failure requiring intubation. A centrifugal RA to PA pump was placed (Protek Duo) for right-sided mechanical circulatory support, with improvement in RV hemodynamics and cardiogenic shock. Notably, a repeat angiogram was done, which showed a patent left coronary circulation as well as a right coronary artery without flow in the acute marginal branches. After 6 days of mechanical circulatory support, the patient was ultimately able to be weaned from vasoactive agents, and the Protek Duo was removed. He continued to have junctional bradycardia, and a permanent pacemaker was placed. After a nearly month-long admission, the patient was discharged to rehab; at 4 months follow-up,
