BACKGROUND Over the past three decades, transcatheter occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) has evolved to be the procedure of choice. Gianturco and Flipper coils are the most commonly used coils in the United States for closure of small and moderate size PDAs. For larger PDAs, interventionalists in the United States commonly use the Amplatzer Duct… (More)
A rare combination of aortopulmonary window and complete atrioventricular septal defect diagnosed in a 2-month-old infant with heterotaxy syndrome is presented. Being aware of this combination of cardiac anomalies before surgical intervention is crucial for perioperative anesthetic technique and preservation of the myocardium.
A case of huge intrapericardial teratoma diagnosed in a 9-month-old infant is presented. Echocardiography and thoracic computed tomography showed a voluminous multicystic intrapericardial mass with pericardial effusion. The tumor was resected surgically. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of immature teratoma.
BACKGROUND Late complications after Fontan procedure may be due to the absence of pump and pulsatile pulmonary blood flow in this type of palliation. Our aim was to quantify the degree of pulsation by echocardiographic method in patients with extracardiac total cavopulmonary connection (ECTCPC) in comparison with biventricular circulation and few cases of… (More)
OBJECTIVES We examined the effect of avoiding cardiopulmonary bypass on the early outcome variables after fenestrated extracardiac total cavopulmonary connection. METHODS Between May 2001 and January 2009, 102 patients with univentricular heart physiology underwent fenestrated extracardiac total cavopulmonary connection. Patients were divided into one of… (More)
