Event Description
Related manufacturing ref: 3008452825-2019-00594, 2182269-2019-00242. The following was published in the european society of cardiology in an article titled, "inadvertent transseptal puncture into the aortic root: the narrow edge between luck and catastrophe in interventional cardiology" by hao chen, et al. On 18 march 2019 regarding a multi-center study presenting experiences of unintentional aortic root puncture (arp) and clinical management occurring in 20 years of practicing transseptal puncture (tsp): all patients with arp were retrospectively collected from seven hospitals. Aortic root puncture was identified and classified regarding angiographical and intraoperative findings in cardiac surgery: (i) tsp from the right atrium (ra) to the non-coronary sinus (ncs), (ii) tsp from ra to the non-coronary sinutubular junction (stj), and (iii) tsp from ra to the ascending aorta (aa). A total of 24 patients with inadvertent arp were identified. In 19 patients, penetration of the aorta was accomplished by the inner dilator, in 5 patients by the complete sheath. Previous cardiac surgery had been performed in six patients. There were 13 ra-to-ncs punctures, 2 ra-to-stj punctures, and 9 ra-to-aa punctures. No cardiac tamponade (ct) occurred in patients with ra-to-ncs and ra-to-stj punctures. In 8 of 9 patients with ra-to-aa puncture, ct occurred immediately requiring urgent pericardiocentesis and surgical repair. Two patients died after surgical repair. In the 16 patients without surgical therapy, no shunt from the ar to the ra was observed 3 months after the procedure. The two deaths were due to vt electric storm 10 days post procedure and multi-organ failure and pneumonia 84 days post procedure. They were not attributed to the aortic root puncture.
