The medical records of 685 patients with ventricular septal defect (VSD) were reviewed to determine spontaneous closure, left ventricular-to-right atrial shunt, subaortic ridge, and aortic valve prolapse. Patients had been followed for a mean of 3 +/- 2.5 years and median 2.2 years by echocardiography. VSD was perimembranous in 65.7% (450), trabecular(More)
There is no specific criteria established to guide physicians in the differential diagnosis of primary mitral valve prolapse (MVP) and rheumatic MVP. Previous studies suggested that history and pathology of mitral valve could be helpful in differential diagnosis of MVP. The aim of this study was to evaluate the value of QT interval, QT dispersion, and(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)
We investigated the morphology of the stenotic aortic valve, the progression of the stenosis, and the onset and progression of aortic regurgitation (AR) in patients with congenital aortic valvular stenosis (AVS). The medical records of 278 patients with AVS were reviewed, with the patients with concomitant lesions besides AR excluded. Very mild aortic(More)
Aortic valve prolapse (AVP) was detected in 82 (7.5%) of 1096 patients with ventricular septal defect (VSD) (in 50 at initial echocardiographic examination and in 32 at follow-up) by echocardiography. Of 82 patients with AVP, aortic regurgitation (AR) was detected in 53 (65%) (in 28 at initial echocardiographic examination and in 25 at follow-up), resulting(More)
This study evaluates the progression of stenosis, onset and progression of aortic regurgitation (AR), and the results of surgical outcomes in children with isolated discrete subaortic stenosis (SAS). The medical records of 108 patients (mean age, 5.5 +/- 3.8 years; range, 3 days to 18 years) with isolated discrete SAS were reviewed. Patients with lesions(More)
Examined was the effect of surgical technique, particularly the insertion of a transannular patch, on right ventricular diastolic function, and the relationship of forward flow in the pulmonary arteries during late diastole to right ventricular diastolic function in patients with tetralogy of Fallot. Transtricuspid, superior caval venous and pulmonary(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed, in this study, to compare dispersion of the p wave in patients with type 1 diabetes to nondiabetic control subjects, and to investigate the relationship between the dispersion of the p wave and cardiac autonomic dysfunction in diabetic children. METHODS We enrolled 49 patients with type 1 diabetes, and 32 age- and sex-matched healthy(More)
Anomalous origin of the circumflex coronary artery is extremely rare and may cause acute cardiac decompensation associated with correction of coexisting congenital malformations. We describe a 10-year-old female patient who underwent surgical repair of the aortic coarctation at 4 years of age. Six years later, she presented with chest pain during exercise.(More)
