Once In a Blue Moon: A Rare CASE for June

The latest issue of CASE, ASE’s open access case reports journal, is now available with some fascinating reports, including “A Sticky Situation: The Unfortunate Consequence of Chewing Gum” by Christopher Lee, MD et al. CASE Editor-in-Chief, Vincent L. Sorrell, MD, FASE, remarked, “This issue includes a rarity! Since assuming the role as EIC, I can honestly say that this has never occurred in the many hundreds of manuscripts I have reviewed. In this issue, there is one of the most clinically meaningful CASE reports we’ve published, and it did not include any high-quality images. In fact, there were no interpretable images whatsoever. And that is the point of their report. Lee et al. should be congratulated in their careful approach to a patient with grossly impaired acoustic transmission during a TEE procedure.” Read the full article in CASE to learn more!

Additionally, there are two reports in the Multimodality Imaging category and three in the Interventional Echocardiography category, including a case on the serial evaluation of the oldest living patient with asymptomatic severe apical variant hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. A diverse range of reports fall into the Congenital Heart Disease category, including one from a 38-year-old with an untreated Gerbode defect who underwent coarctation stenting. In his editorial, Dr. Sorrell parallels his travels westward to the daily explorations of echocardiographers and the images that tell a story if one looks close enough.
