This report describes the feasibility and safety of cardiac catheterization in a developing country without access to a regular cardiac catheterization laboratory. The equipment used for imaging consisted of a monoplane conventional C-arm X-ray system and a portable ultrasound machine using the usual guidewires and catheters for cardiovascular access. In(More)
BACKGROUND The T-wave peak to T-wave end (TpTe) interval reflects spatial and transmural dispersion in repolarization and serves as an arrhythmogenic index. Normal TpTe interval data in children are lacking. We evaluated the effects of age, gender, heart rate, leads (II and V(5)) on TpTe and T-wave voltage. METHODS Four hundred healthy children (age 4(More)
CONTEXT The phenotype of 45,X/46,XY mosaicism is heterogeneous ranging from females with Turner syndrome (TS) to apparently normal males. Males with 45,X/46,XY frequently show stigmata typically associated with TS. We hypothesised that males with 45,X/46,XY have similar cardiovascular pathology as females with 45,X/46,XY. OBJECTIVE To investigate(More)
In the presence of new surgical techniques, the treatment of congenital valvular aortic stenosis is under debate. We reviewed the results and late outcomes of all 93 patients aged 1 day to 18 years, treated with balloon valvuloplasty (BAV) as first-line therapy for congenital aortic valve stenosis in our center from January 1991 to May 2012. Mean age at(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Cirrhosis in adults is associated with modifications of systemic and liver hemodynamics, whereas little is known about the pediatric population. The aim of this work was to investigate whether alterations of hepatic and systemic hemodynamics were correlated with cirrhosis severity in children. The impact of hemodynamic findings on(More)
