PURPOSE To compare the image quality and diagnostic accuracy between sinogram affirmed iterative reconstruction (SAFIRE) algorithm and filtered back projection (FBP) reconstruction algorithm at 70 kVp-tube-voltage DSCT angiography in children with congenital heart disease (CHD). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-eight patients (mean age: 13 months; range: 2-48(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the value of prospective ECG-gated high-pitch 128-slice dual-source CT (DSCT) angiography in the diagnosis of congenital extracardiac vascular anomalies in infants and children in comparison with transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). METHODS Eighty consecutive infants or children clinically diagnosed of congenital heart disease and(More)
Because of their plasticity and availability, bone-marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) are a potential cell source for treating ischemic heart disease. Schwann cells (SC) play a critical role in neural remodeling and angiogenesis because of their secretion of cytokines such as vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Cell microencapsulation,(More)
Since the first introduction of pulmonary balloon valvuloplasty by Kan in 1982, the procedure has been used for relief of pulmonary valve stenosis. It is normally recommended that the procedure should be performed for peak-topeak gradients in excess of 50 mm Hg,1 and the balloon/ annulus ratio should be 1.2 to 1.25 for effective and safe results.2(More)
Since 2008, 28 patients with congenital mitral regurgitation have undergone mitral valve repair with a modified edge-to-edge technique at our institution. The regurgitant mitral leaflet was sutured with a pledget-reinforced, horizontal mattress suture with No. 4-0 polypropylene on the ventricle side and a pledget-reinforced mattress suture with Gore-Tex(More)
Right ventricular (RV) hypoplasia with isolated myocardial disease and complete absence of RV trabeculae is a rare congenital heart disease, the current treatment of which is ineffective. Here, a rare case is presented of a middle-aged female patient with RV hypoplasia complicated by tricuspid regurgitation, right atrial thrombus, and atrial fibrillation.(More)
