Two infants with aortico-left ventricular tunnel and associated aortic valvular disease were operated upon. The first patient, age 28 months, had successful surgical closure of the anomalous communication. Four years postoperatively he is asymptomatic, but mild aortic regurgitation persists. The second infant, aged 3 months (the youngest reported surgical(More)
Sixty-two hearts without a patent exit from the left atrium to the ventricular mass have been studied. All had situs solitus and laevocardia. The material consisted of 32 cases with coexistent aortic atresia and 30 cases with patent aortic root. Five hearts with aortic atresia were biventricular with atrioventricular concordance and imperforate left(More)
The Authors report their experience in the surgical treatment of 19 patients under two years of age (75% under six months), with severe symptoms for the presence of a complete or incomplete vascular ring. Twelve patients had double aortic arch, two had a right aortic arch with a left ligamentum arteriosum, four a symptomatic retroesophageal right subclavian(More)
OBJECTIVES To test the hypothesis that transoesophageal echocardiography (TOE) carried out within three days of a first stroke or transient ischaemic attack of cryptogenic or lacunar type may disclose more thrombi or spontaneous echo contrast (SEC) than previously reported. This finding may help early treatment decisions. METHODS Patients aged between 40(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated the appropriateness of the prescription of echocardiography, exercise testing, Holter monitoring and vascular sonography for ambulatory patients, performed during 4 weeks in 21 outpatient laboratories in Tuscany and Umbria, Italy. METHODS We collected the following data: the appropriateness of the prescription (according to the(More)
Protein-losing enteropathy occurred in a 7-year-old girl with tricuspid atresia, concordant ventriculo-arterial connexions and a relatively large hypoplastic right ventricle, one year after an atrio-ventricular type of Fontan operation by means of a valveless woven Dacron conduit. Severe conduit regurgitation and a marked enlargement of the hypoplastic(More)
