Extended application of percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation.
TLDR
Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation can be performed in patients with pulmonary valve regurgitation, including those with previous RVOT patch using pre-stenting techniques, with satisfactory results. Expand
Transcatheter Tricuspid Valve-in-Valve Implantation for the Treatment of Dysfunctional Surgical Bioprosthetic Valves: An International, Multicenter Registry Study
TLDR
Although preimplantation clinical status was associated with outcome, many patients in New York Heart Association class III or IV at baseline improved, and TVIV should be considered a viable option for treatment of failing TV bioprostheses. Expand
Recurrent intrauterine fetal loss due to near absence of HERG: clinical and functional characterization of a homozygous nonsense HERG Q1070X mutation.
TLDR
Clinical, molecular, and functional studies of a consanguineous Arabian family with repeated early miscarriages and two intrauterine fetal losses in the early part of the third trimester of pregnancy due to persistent arrhythmias found that homozygous HERG Q1070X is equivalent to near functional knockout of HERG.

Transcatheter closure of large secundum atrial septal defects using the 40 mm Amplatzer septal occluder: Results of an international registry
TLDR
It is concluded that the 40 mm ASO is safe and effective in most patients with a large ASD up to a diameter of 39 mm, however, the use of this device requires careful attention as the procedure may be unsuccessful or the device may embolize. Expand
Williams-Beuren Syndrome: Computed Tomography Imaging Review
TLDR
A retrospective analysis of all the available images from patients diagnosed with Williams-Beuren syndrome in last 4 years is performed, and key imaging findings are presented along with a review of the literature to summarize the clinically relevant features as demonstrated by multidetector computed tomography in WBS. Expand
An intronic mutation leading to incomplete skipping of exon-2 in KCNQ1 rescues hearing in Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome.
TLDR
The molecular and functional data provide the first evidence that small amount (as low as 10%) of normal KCNQ1 current can effectively maintain the hearing function but fails to maintain cardiac repolarization characteristics within normal limits. Expand
Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation using Edwards SAPIEN transcatheter heart valve in different types of conduits: initial results of a single center experience.
TLDR
The SAPIEN Transcatheter Heart Valve can be a good alternative to surgical conduit replacement, particularly in patients with larger and different types of conduits, and procedural results and short-term outcomes were very promising in the patients included in the study. Expand
Congenital Long QT Syndrome: An Update and Present Perspective in Saudi Arabia
TLDR
The present review will focus on the genetic basis of LQTS and its clinical management, and discusses the presently available genetic insight in this context from Saudi Arabia. Expand
Transesophageal echocardiographic predictors for successful transcatheter closure of defects within the oval fossa using the CardioSEAL® septal occlusion device
TLDR
Transesophageal echocardiography allows excellent assessment of the oval fossa and deficiencies of its floor in all of their dimensions and is an important tool for guiding the deployment of the occlusion device in patients undergoing attempted transcatheter closure of defects within the fossa. Expand
Intramyocardial hematoma causing cardiac tamponade after repair of Ebstein malformation: erroneous echocardiographic diagnosis as intracavitary thrombus.
TLDR
A 17-year-old patient who experienced cardiac tamponade after repair of Ebstein malformation was incorrectly diagnosed by echocardiography as an intracavitary thrombus, and the correct diagnosis was recognized only at the time of surgical intervention. Expand
