Supravalvular aortic stenosis (SVAS) is an uncommon congenital cardiac anomaly. We report sudden death, occurring during exercise, of a child who had SVAS with fusion of the right coronary aortic leaflet to the supravalvular aortic ridge, resulting in a closed sinus of Valsalva except for a few pinpoint fenestrations in the dysplastic leaflet. In addition,(More)
In twelve obese children (relative weight 161–222%) threshold studies of insulin secretion were performed after administration of increasing doses of glucose I.V. (0.02, 0.04, 0.08 and 0.33 g/kg body weight) given at 0, 60, 120, and 180 minutes. Glucose and immunoreactive insulin (IRI) levels were determined at short intervals after each dose. The contrast(More)
Background Ventricular dysfunction in patients with a single right ventricle (SRV) or a single left ventricle (SLV) is a known risk factor for morbidity and mortality. In normal hearts, LV and RV augment each other, while this is not possible in single ventricle (SV) patients. Ventricular-ventricular relationship in SV patients remain poorly understood,(More)
