The clinical course of two children with mid-aortic syndrome and renal artery stenosis (RAS) who suffered from severe arterial hypertension is described. Hypertension was uncontrollable by antihypertensive medication and was managed by percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) with stent implantation. The pediatric experience with PTRA is limited,(More)
PURPOSE While surgical closure of ventricular septal defects (VSD) is still the gold standard, we review our experience with the interventional closure of single and multiple muscular VSD in newborns and infants under 20 kg. METHOD Between 2004 and 2012 transcatheter closure of ten Swiss cheese VSD, six single muscular and one apical VSD was attempted in(More)
BACKGROUND This study analyzed the long-term outcome after operations for open aortic valvotomy, specifically looking at the preservation of the native aortic valve. METHODS Between 1983 and 2011, 34 neonates with critical aortic stenosis underwent open valvotomy. The mean age at operation was 15 days (range, 1 to 28 days). Follow-up was 100% complete. (More)
The aim of this study was to analyze the midterm results following the Ross-Konno procedure in children. Between 1999 and 2008, 29 patients with complex left ventricular outflow tract obstruction underwent the Ross-Konno procedure. There were 12 (41%) infants (group A) and 17 (59%) older patients (group B). The median age at operation was 3.3 years (range,(More)
Okklusionssysteme wie der Rashkind-Schirm wurden in den letzten Jahren bei vielfältigen Läsionen eingesetzt. Neuere Verschlusssysteme, die aufgrund ihres Aufbaues und ihrer Mechanik theoretisch ein noch breiteres therapeutisches Spektrum anbieten, haben mittlerweile diese ersetzt.    Zwischen 1999 und 2001 wurden bei 11 Patienten im Alter von 2,5 Monaten(More)
The Cardioseal/Starflex septal occluder is usually deployed through a long transvenous sheath for closure of atrial septal defects, persistent foramen ovale, and, less commonly, ventricular septal defects. We describe two patients with residual left-to-right shunting after surgical palliation of congenital heart defects and illustrate the successful use of(More)
