OBJECTIVES Despite improvements in the surgical management of neonates with the hypoplastic left heart syndrome and its variants, there is a subset of children who have a high predicted mortality. We have analyzed and report our results with the hybrid approach in the management of these high-risk patients. METHODS Children identified by our selection(More)
OBJECT Due to the difficulty of obtaining patient-specific velocity measurements during imaging, many assumptions have to be made while imposing inflow boundary conditions in numerical simulations conducted using patient-specific, imaging-based cerebral aneurysm models. These assumptions can introduce errors, resulting in lack of agreement between the(More)
Left ventricular pseudoaneurysms can occur after myocardial infarction or trauma, but are extremely rare in pediatric patients. We present a case of post-traumatic left ventricular pseudoaneurysm, in whom the causative event was some time before the acute clinical deterioration. The 9-year-old boy had repeated presentations for chest pain and lethargy for(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study evaluated the mortality and conduit failure in bovine jugular vein (BJV) conduits. METHODS Between October 1999 and February 2009, 193 patients (mean age, 6.7 ± 5.8 years; range, 5 days to 18 years; mean weight, 23.9 ± 21.0 kg; range, 2.4-105.4 kg) had been discharged after BJV implantation. The reason for BJV implantation was(More)
INTRODUCTION A multicenter prospective study was conducted to evaluate a new strategy for multiple Ventricular Septal Defects (VSDs). MATERIALS AND METHODS From 2004 to 2012 17 consecutive children (3 premature, 14 infants), mean age 3.2 months (9 days-9 months), mean body weight 4.2 kg (3.1-6.1 kg), with multiple VSDs underwent Pulmonary Artery Banding(More)
Thoracic ectopia cordis is a rare congenital defect with very few reported survivors after surgical correction. We report a case of complete thoracic ectopia cordis with double outlet right ventricle. The diagnosis was established antenatally and a repair was undertaken soon after birth. The child remained stable and was extubated on the fifth(More)
We describe a case of an ascending aortic pseudoaneurysm during long-term follow-up after repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). The patient had a complex cardiac surgical history with multiple operations for the correction of TOF. The aneurysm was located at the presumed site of previous aortic cannulation. It was initially treated percutaneously with an(More)
