It has been suggested that the use of finger-trap traction results in a better reduction and a lower rate of redisplacement than manual manipulation does, but to our knowledge these concepts have never been evaluated(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare image quality, radiation and contrast doses required to obtain 3D-Digital subtraction rotational angiography (3D-DSRA) with 3D-Digital rotational angiography (3D-DRA) in infants (children ≤ 2 years of age) and adults with congenital heart diseases (ACHD). BACKGROUND 3D-DRA can be performed with radiation doses comparable to bi-plane(More)
Left thoracic sympathectomy has been shown to be an effective treatment for adults with long QT syndrome who are refractory to medical therapy. We report the successful use of left thoracic sympathectomy for the management of a 10-week-old premature baby with long QT syndrome and heart failure from a large ventricular septal defect and patent ductus(More)
BACKGROUND Numerous advances in surgical techniques and understanding of single-ventricle physiology have resulted in improved survival. We sought to determine the influence of various demographic, perioperative, and patient-specific factors on the survival of single-ventricle patients following stage 1 palliation at our institution. METHODS We conducted(More)
