The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of multislice computed tomographic (MSCT) angiography as a noninvasive method for detecting ostial, proximal, and middle segment coronary stenosis or occlusion and anatomy in patients with transposition of the great arteries who had undergone arterial switch operation (ASO). Sixteen-detector-row MSCT(More)
Bilateral pulmonary artery aneurysms developed in the course of staphylococcal endocarditis in a 6-year-old girl with ventricular septal defect. Consecutive computed tomography scans revealed the progressive enlargement of one of the aneurysms. She underwent an urgent left upper lobectomy because of the impending rupture and a possible life-threatening(More)
OBJECTIVE The frequency of residual shunting or recanalization was investigated in patients in whom a persistently patent arterial duct had been doubly ligated and transfixed during surgical closure. METHODS We investigated in retrospective fashion for any residual shunting 325 patients who, between January 1990 and December 2004, had undergone surgical(More)
Familial Mediterranean fever is a hereditary disease characterised by recurrent and self-terminated attacks of fever and polyserositis. An earlier study found that adult patients of Familial Mediterranean fever had an abnormally longer QT dispersion and corrected QT dispersion, markers for ventricular arrhythmogenicity. QT dispersion is a simple(More)
OBJECTIVE Cardiac involvement as pericarditis, myocarditis and valvular disease is common in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). However, there are few studies concerning systolic and diastolic functions of the left ventricle in children with JIA. P wave dispersion is a sign for the prediction of atrial fibrillation. A recent study found that rheumatoid(More)
We report a two-year-old female child with scimitar syndrome associated with absent pulmonary artery but with normal pulmonary artery pressure although several collaterals originated from the abdominal aorta to the right lung. To our knowledge, this is the fifth case with an absent pulmonary artery. Our case also had microphthalmia, an association not(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to investigate the change in diameter of holes within the oval fossa, and the role of aneurismal formation in reducing the size of the hole, in patients diagnosed during infancy with isolated defects in the floor of the fossa. PATIENTS In a retrospective study, we included 100 patients diagnosed during the first year of life with an(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the reference values of M-mode echocardiographic measurements in healthy newborns according to body weight. METHODS From January, 2008 to June, 2008, a total of 250 - 130 female and 120 male - term healthy newborns were included in the study. M-mode echocardiographic measurements were recorded by a paediatric cardiologist in accordance(More)
Ventricular noncompaction, characterized by numerous, prominent ventricular trabeculations and deep intratrabecular recesses, is thought to be due to an arrest of myocardial morphogenesis. We report eight patients with ventricular noncompaction diagnosed at our center in the previous one year. Two patients had associated congenital cardiac anomalies while(More)
Fetal echocardiography can be used to detect congenital heart disease prenatally with a high degree of accuracy, and complex heart malformations have also been clearly described in the fetus. However, it is difficult to diagnose correctly or to exclude definitely aortic coarctation by fetal echocardiography. A 23-year-old woman was referred for fetal(More)
