Significant intraoperative right ventricular outflow gradients after repair for tetralogy of Fallot: to revise or not to revise?
BACKGROUND This study was performed to define alternative parameters for the management of intraoperative residual right ventricular outflow obstruction (RVOTO) after transatrial repair of tetralogy
Supramitral ring: good prognosis in a subset of patients with congenital mitral stenosis.
Patients with supramitral ring constitute a subset of patients with congenital mitral stenosis who have a relatively good prognosis, and when attached, it is usually most prominent at the posteroinferior commissure.
Cardiac injuries--a clinical and autopsy profile.
The data emphasize the need for rapid transport, immediate recognition, and aggressive surgical management, to make a favourable impact on the natural history of cardiac injuries.
Staged repair of pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect and major systemic to pulmonary artery collaterals.
Fifty-eight consecutive patients with pulmonary atresia, ventricular septal defect, hypoplastic pulmonary arteries with arborization defects, and major aortopulmonary collaterals were entered into a
Serial echocardiography for decision making in rapid two-stage arterial switch operation.
Echocardiography can be used reliably in surgical decision making in rapid two-stage arterial switch operation in infants with simple transposition presenting late, and increase in left ventricular mass,Left ventricular posterior wall thickness, andleft ventricular end-diastolic internal diameter toward normal combined with an acquisition of circular left ventricle configuration with the interventricular septum contracting in synergy with the left vent cardiac mass appear to best predict successful outcome.
Surgical experience with intracardiac myxomas.
Eighteen patients underwent surgery for intracardiac myxoma (16 left atrial and 2 right atrial) during the last 10 years and all the survivors were in New York Heart Association Class I.
Early Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Congenital Heart Surgery Programs Across the World: Assessment by a Global Multi-Societal Consortium
The results of an international survey sent to pediatric and congenital heart surgeons characterizing the early impact of COVID-19 on the care of patients with CHD are presented.
Coronary Artery Fistulas in Pulmonary Atresia and Ventricular Septal Defect
In children with favorable anatomy, direct closure of the fistula from the pulmonary artery is adequate and allows single-stage intracardiac repair, which was adequate in all cases.
Indian guidelines for indications and timing of intervention for common congenital heart diseases: Revised and updated consensus statement of the Working group on management of congenital heart
Evidence-based recommendations are provided for indications and timing of intervention in common CHD, including left-to-right shunts, obstructive lesions, and cyanotic CHD; and guidelines are given on indications for implantation of permanent pacemakers in children.
