Pulmonary arteriovenous fistula is a rare disease. To the best of our knowledge, prenatal diagnosis of a fistula between the left pulmonary artery and the left pulmonary vein has not been described in the medical literature. We report a case of the prenatal diagnosis of a left pulmonary artery-to-pulmonary vein fistula, followed by successful neonatal(More)
OBJECTIVE This article describes the first clinical experience of complete repair of complex critical congenital heart diseases (CHDs) in the first hours of life using autologous umbilical cord blood (UCB). Prenatal diagnosis and harvesting of autologous UCB allow to modify perioperative management and to perform corrective surgery in the first hours of a(More)

The basic principles of diagnosis and management of pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect and major aorto-pulmonary collateral arteries are systematizes in this paper. The personal experience of surgical treatment of consecutive 66 patients with this disease is analyzed, including one-stage and multistage approaches.
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to analyze the spectrum of prenatally diagnosed absent pulmonary valve syndrome (APVS) and the outcome from diagnosis onwards. Fetuses with APVS and tetralogy of Fallot (TOF/APVS) and with APVS and intact ventricular septum (APVS/IVS) were included. METHOD Multicenter retrospective study of the International(More)
In the article the beneficial effects of individually adjusted single interval hypoxic hypercapnic session (IHHS) on parameters of heart rate variability (HRV) and of aerobic metabolism are demonstrated and interactions between studied indexes are discussed. In 24 athletes, hypoxia was achieved in closed breathing circuit under constant pulseoxymetry(More)
The effect of oscillatory decrease in the heart rate and hemoglobin oxygen saturation (SaO2) during the submaximal workload (bicycle ergometry test) was demonstrated in high-performance athletes and volunteers practicing healthy life style. The obtained parameters (heart rate, SaO2, amplitude of oscillation, and recovery time) were analyzed taking into(More)
