Objective We sought to define the neurodevelopmental status of school-aged survivors of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection repaired during infancy. Methods All school-aged survivors of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection repair performed at a single institution were eligible. Thirty children returned for neurologic examination and(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated cardiopulmonary function at rest and during exercise in children after surgical repair for total anomalous pulmonary venous connection. BACKGROUND Long-term assessment of cardiopulmonary function during exercise in children after repair for total anomalous pulmonary venous connection during infancy is limited. METHODS Resting(More)
OBJECTIVES The majority of previous studies that described the neuropsychological effects of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in children were performed after surgery in infancy for complex congenital heart disease (CHD). We sought to limit confounding variables and isolate potential independent effects of CPB by describing neuropsychological function in(More)
OBJECTIVE To verify the hypothesis that volume of regional gray matter accounts substantially for variability in intelligence quotient (IQ) score among children with sickle cell disease, who have no magnetic resonance visible infarcts. METHODS We studied 31 children with sickle cell disease, homozygous for hemoglobin S, with no history of stroke, no(More)
The aim of this study was to explore whether intellectual performance in children with Sickle Cell Disease and with low risk of stroke as determined with conventional transcranial Doppler ultrasonography (TCD) criteria was associated with hemodynamic parameters in imaging TCD, when controlling for hematological and socio-economical variables and presence of(More)
OBJECTIVE Atypical development, behavioral difficulties, and academic underachievement are common morbidities in children with a history of congenital heart defects and impact quality of life. Language and social-cognitive deficits have been described, which are associated with autism spectrum disorders. The current study aimed to assess the rates of autism(More)
