We present a case of a severely ill newborn with complex coarctation, multiorgan failure and massive oedema, who was treated with emergency stenting of the isthmus on the second day of life, which was followed by surgical stent removal and repair of the arch on the 29(th) day, after stabilization of his general status. Interventional percutaneous direct(More)
We report a case of a 2-year-old girl with prenatal diagnosis of vascular ring composed of a right-sided aortic arch, a left ligamentum arteriosum, and a left subclavian artery (arteria lusoria sin) originating from a retroesophageal Kommerell's diverticulum, who was referred for surgery with symptoms related to local compression - severe dysphagia and(More)
The implantation of vascular stents in patients with low body weight and difficult anatomy of the stenosis needs individual cannulation strategy or a hybrid approach. We present a successful balloon angioplasty with direct stent implantation to severe ostial stenosis of the left pulmonary artery to xenograft anastomosis (LPA) in a 6-year-old boy late after(More)
INTRODUCTION An individually designed strategy of comprehensive alternative hybrid and staged interventional treatment (AHASIT) can be a reasonable alternative to conventional treatment of congenital heart defects, reduce the risk of cardiac surgery or interventions performed separately, and give an additional chance for critically ill children. AIM To(More)
INTRODUCTION Cardiac tamponade is excessive collection of fluid in the pericardial sac surrounding the heart that leads to restriction of cardiac function and causes critical cardiogenic shock and rapid circulatory depression. Despite the potential variety of different etiologies in the face of a dangerous decrease of cardiac output, the emergency(More)
A 10-month-old girl was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit with the symptoms of critical cardiac decompensation. In the 3rd month of life, 3 kg bw, she underwent an interventional persistent ductus arteriosus (PDA) closure in a high-reference pediatric cardiology center. Echocardiography performed on admission showed myocardial injury, with poor(More)
We report the case of a successful transatrial hybrid atrial septal defect (ASD II) closure in a borderline 9-month-old girl with multiple congenital defects. The patient, with hemodynamically significant ASD II, had scoliosis of the thoracic spine with multiple axial skeleton defects, including congenital defects of tho-racic vertebrae, defects of the(More)
