OBJECTIVES The incidence of endotracheal tube (ETT) malposition in children with various described methods is 15% to 30%. Chest x-ray (CXR) is the gold standard for confirming appropriate ETT position. The aim of this study was to measure the accuracy of a preoperative CXR-based method in determining depth of insertion of ETTs and to compare it with methods(More)
Venous aneurysms arising from the mediastinal systemic veins are rare. There are only 27 reported cases of such aneurysms. Majority arise from the superior vena cava. We are reporting a saccular aneurysm of superior vena cava in a 58-year-old male. The chest radiogram suggested superior mediastinal mass and the computed tomogram was suggestive of aortic(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate a rare subset of adult patients with double-chambered right ventricle, pertaining to clinical presentation, rhythm disturbances, surgical approach, and results of surgical repair. A retrospective review of our records revealed that 14 adults had undergone surgical repair of double-chambered right ventricle from 1990(More)
BACKGROUND Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) presents rarely in adulthood and is treated by different surgical techniques with varying results. This study was undertaken to evaluate the feasibility of reestablishment of a dual coronary system in older children and adults with emphasis on direct aortic(More)
Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the right pulmonary artery is a very rare congenital anomaly, and its occurrence with coarctation of the aorta has been reported in very few patients. We report a neonate where the coronary anomaly was missed preoperatively and diagnosed after repair of the coarctation. The patient thereafter underwent(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) with monocusp pulmonary valve reconstruction prevents pulmonary regurgitation (PR) for a variable period. Since postoperative outcome is governed by PR and right ventricular function, we sought to assess the severity of pulmonary regurgitation and right ventricular outflow (RVOT) gradient in the(More)
OBJECTIVE Repair of anomalous pulmonary venous connection (APVC) to superior vena cava (SVC) with internal pericardial patch may be complicated by the obstruction of the SVC or pulmonary veins and sinus node dysfunction. Moreover, the shrinkage of the pericardium may lead to late obstruction. Various techniques are practiced, which have reduced the(More)
OBJECTIVE Review of intraoperative anesthetic challenges and the role of transesophageal echocardiography in children with sinus venosus atrial septal defect and partial anomalous pulmonary venous drainage undergoing Warden repair. DESIGN A retrospective observational case series. METHODOLGY: Pediatric patients who underwent Warden repair between October(More)
