OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to report the results of an international multicenter experience of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) evaluation of cardiac tumors in children, each with histology correlation or a diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis, and to determine which characteristics are predictive of tumor type. BACKGROUND Individual centers(More)
Introduction Phase offset errors from local eddy currents can lead to significant errors in flow assessment on clinical cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) examinations. Phantom correction for phase contrast (PC) errors appears to improve accuracy in flow assessment, but requires additional time and is not free from technical limitations. Background(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a promising approach to improve cardiac function in children in heart failure with cardiomyopathy. Cardiac timing measures in pediatrics are typically based on age and heart rate. However, pediatric CRT studies to date have used adult based timing cutoff values. We investigated the applicability of using(More)
Pulmonary regurgitation and/or stenosis (PS) is challenging in patients with congenital heart defects. Our aim was to identify if criteria for referral were different between surgical (SPVR) and transcatheter pulmonary valve replacement (TPVR) populations, and to further assess if any baseline differences influence the resultant ventricular remodeling at(More)
We report a case of a persistent left superior vena cava draining to the right atrium via the coronary sinus in conjunction with partial anomalous pulmonary venous return of the left pulmonary veins to the coronary sinus. Although a persistent left superior vena cava is typically of little clinical consequence, in this case, it complicated surgical repair(More)
Studies regarding long-term results after repair of anomalous left main coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) have mainly focused on survival rates, left ventricular function, and mitral valve function. The development of left main coronary stenosis following repair has been infrequently reported and its incidence unknown. Optimal therapy is(More)
