The authors report a case of coronary arterial anastomosis between the right coronary and left circumflex arteries in the absence of other coronary pathology. This is an exceptionally rare congenital malformation which is situated either in the atrioventricular groove or at the apex in the interventricular groove. It constitutes a diagnostic pitfall(More)
Exacerbation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) inflammation in response to bacteriolysis by beta-lactam antibiotics contributes to brain damage and neurological sequelae in bacterial meningitis. Daptomycin, a nonlytic antibiotic acting on Gram-positive bacteria, lessens inflammation and brain injury compared to ceftriaxone. With a view to a clinical application(More)
In three children with Down syndrome and acquired hypothyroidism echocardiography was performed before and after the start ofl-thyroxine treatment. Initial studies revealed pericardial effusions which resolved during treatment suggesting that they were caused by hypothyroidism. The incidence of hypothyroidism in Down syndrome is high, but the diagnosis is(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to evaluate the clinical outcome following total cavopulmonary connection (TCPC) and to identify factors affecting early and late outcome. METHODS Between May 1994 and March 2015, 434 patients underwent TCPC with 50 lateral tunnels and 374 extracardiac conduits. The clinical outcome, exercise capacity and liver examination(More)
We present a case of a neonate with a huge congenital fistula from the left anterior descending coronary artery to the right ventricle and additional heart defects. The circumflex coronary artery was supplied by the right coronary artery. The fistula was closed surgically at both ends.
BACKGROUND The development of recoarctation after the Norwood I procedure is a known complication in patients with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). METHODS We reviewed data on 194 consecutive patients with HLHS who underwent the Norwood I procedure between 2000 and 2015. All patients who survived until the second stage of the procedure were(More)
BACKGROUND After the Fontan-Björk modification for tricuspid atresia, some patients show pulsatile systolic pulmonary flow. We compared the hemodynamic findings and the clinical presentation of patients with and without pulsatile systolic flow after atrioventricular connection. METHODS According to the pulmonary flow pattern by pulsed-wave Doppler(More)
We present a case of an aortic atresia and a persistent right aortic arch with a retro-aortic brachiocephalic vein. A left neo-aortic arch was constructed using a reversed subclavian flap and a standard Norwood-type patch enlargement to provide systemic outflow. The intercarotid section of the aortic arch was hypoplastic. Therefore, we maintained the(More)

OBJECTIVES Da Silva's cone repair is a novel technique for surgical reconstruction of the tricuspid valve and the right ventricle (RV) in Ebstein's anomaly. The technique consists of extensive leaflet mobilization, longitudinal plication of the atrialized ventricle and cone-shaped reconstruction of the tricuspid valve, allowing for leaflet-to-leaflet(More)
