BACKGROUND Bi-plane angiography is the gold standard for imaging the pulmonary arteries (PAs) after cavo-pulmonary connection (CPC). Three-dimensional rotational angiography (3DRA) is emerging technology that we hypothesized may enhance diagnostic capabilities in this patient group. METHODS Retrospective review of patients who underwent 3DRA to assess the(More)
The authors discuss reabsorption of cerebrospinal fluid in relation to the post-mortem findings in two children, one with total agenesis of the Pacchionian system accompanied by hydrocephalus, and the other with a subtotal agenesis and no hydrocephalus. Case 1 is the only known documented case of total agenesis of the Pacchionian system and gives credence(More)
1. Serum nitric oxide (NO) levels (determined by its products of oxidation) were assessed in non-pregnant women, normal pregnant women and patients suffering from mild pre-eclampsia (MPE), severe pre-eclampsia (SPE), chronic hypertension (CHT) and CHT with pre-eclampsia (CHT + PE). The levels of NO products were significantly reduced during pregnancy in MPE(More)
Treatment of patients developing steroid-refractory acute GvHD (SR-aGVHD) after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) remains a major therapeutic challenge. Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) have been used in this setting for over a decade. While many factors have been reported to play a role in response rates to MSC, including cell dose,(More)
Branch pulmonary artery stenosis (BPAS) in the setting of systemic-pulmonary artery shunts (SPS) may result in significant sequelae. Limited information exists regarding the safety and efficacy of pulmonary artery balloon angioplasty and stent implantation via SPS in neonates and infants. This study aimed to examine the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of(More)
