OBJECTIVE: The study objective was to evaluate the association of oral acetaminophen therapy versus immediate surgical ligation with neonatal outcomes in infants with persistent patent ductus arteriosus. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study of preterm infants born 28+6  weeks or less gestational age with persistent large patent ductus arteriosus being considered for surgical ligation after unsuccessful medical therapy. Infants in epoch 1 (July 2009 to June 2012) were immediately referred for ligation, and infants in epoch 2 (July 2012 to June 2015) were treated with oral acetaminophen and referred for ligation in the absence of improvement...

BACKGROUND: Although myocardial bridges (MBs) are traditionally regarded as incidental findings, it has been reported that adult patients with symptomatic MBs refractory to medical therapy benefit from unroofing. However, there is limited literature in the pediatric population. The aim of our study was to evaluate the indications and outcomes for unroofing in pediatric patients. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all pediatric patients with MB in our institution who underwent surgical relief...

OBJECTIVES: Mortality in acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is believed to be principally due to the subgroup of PEs that are massive. Systemic thrombolysis is the therapeutic mainstay for acute massive PE, despite evidence suggesting limited survival benefits. Both catheter-based therapies (CBT) and surgical pulmonary embolectomy (SE) are well-accepted alternatives to treat acute PE. However, the comparative effectiveness of these approaches is difficult to study. We conducted a systematic review of CBT and SE for acute PE...

OBJECTIVE: The goal of this study is to evaluate how sinus flow patterns after transcatheter aortic valve replacement in realistic representative patient roots vary. Sinus flow can affect transcatheter aortic valve operation and likely leaflet thrombosis occurrence due to stasis and poor washout. How the interaction between transcatheter aortic valve and representative patient aortic roots affects sinus hemodynamics is important to establish for future individualization of transcatheter aortic valve replacement therapy...

BACKGROUND: Spread through air spaces (STAS) is a recently recognized invasive pattern of lung cancer defined as "micropapillary clusters, solid nests, or single cells beyond the edge of the tumor into air spaces." Since STAS has been shown to be a significant prognosticator for the postoperative survival, predicting STAS preoperatively by computed tomography (CT) might help determine the optimum surgical procedures. METHODS: Information on STAS and preoperative CT was available in 327 patients with resected lung adenocarcinomas...
