Twenty-two late survivors of Mustard repair of transposition of the great arteries underwent treadmill exercise testing to assess exercise endurance, and radionuclide cineangiography to measure rest and exercise right ventricular (RV) and left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF). Mean age at Mustard repair was 1.8 +/- 2.4 years and at initial exercise(More)
Serrated polyps of the colorectal mucosa represent a heterogeneous and controversial taxonomic category with variation in histopathological, molecular, and immunohistochemical characteristics and with an incomplete understanding of pathogenesis. A previous study reported that the expression of gastric pyloric-type mucin, MUC6, characterized sessile serrated(More)
Epidemiologic and clinical features of Kawasaki disease in 106 patients seen between 1980 and 1986 at The New York Hospital in midtown Manhattan were compared with those in large series from the United States, Canada, and Japan. Dissimilarities in our Kawasaki disease experience included ethnic heterogeneity of our patients (50% white, 18% black, 16%(More)
Since January 1980, 110 children having 113 attacks of Kawasaki syndrome were studied. Age at onset was 7 weeks to 12 years (mean 3 6/12 years, median 2 9/12 years); 77% were younger than 5 years of age; the male to female ratio was 1.8; racial distribution was 52% white, 19% black, 14% Hispanic, and 16% Asian. Protocol of management consisted of high-dose(More)
In spite of recent advances in neonatal open repair for complex cyanotic heart disease, some patients require palliation with a systemic-to-pulmonary artery shunt. We report a 5-year experience (1985-1990) with 112 Blalock-Taussig shunts. Forty-six of the 92 patients had some variant of tetralogy of Fallot, with a wide spectrum of diagnoses in the(More)
OBJECTIVES AND BACKGROUND Congenital aortic regurgitation is rare as an isolated lesion. We describe seven children with no physical features of the Marfan syndrome in the patients or their families and no other cardiac lesions who had congenital valvular aortic regurgitation. METHODS From 1954 to the present, seven children with auscultatory and(More)
To determine whether changes in ECGs correlated with abnormalities in echocardiograms in children with acute and convalescent Kawasaki syndrome, we undertook a retrospective analysis of 44 patients examined during the first 2 weeks of illness and followed for at least 6 months, 31 for longer than 1 year. We analyzed 360 ECGs, 282 echocardiograms, and(More)
Gamma globulin administered in a single dose of 1 g/kg of body weight intravenously caused prompt clinical improvement in 27 of 32 consecutive children with Kawasaki disease treated by the 12th day of illness. Response was equally good for the 20 children treated in the first week and the 12 treated in the second week. Fever and clinical signs abated within(More)
The advancements in Doppler methodology in the past decade have dramatically changed the way we assess children with heart disease. Techniques to determine pressures, gradients, shunt flows, and regurgitant lesions have shifted the noninvasive studies into areas that were strictly the venue of catheterization a decade ago. The more recent color Doppler(More)
