OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the use of nesiritide in children with critical CHD, pulmonary congestion, and inadequate urine output despite undergoing conventional diuretic therapy. DESIGN: We conducted a retrospective analysis of 11 patients with critical CHD, comprising 18 infusions, each of which occurred during separate hospitalisations. Haemodynamic parameters were assessed, and the stage of acute kidney injury was determined before and throughout the duration of therapy using a standardised definition of acute kidney injury - The Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes criteria...

Aim The aim of this study was to share the mid-term results of percutaneous ventricular septal defect closure using Amplatzer Duct Occluder-II in children. BACKGROUND: Nowadays, percutaneous ventricular septal defect closure is accepted as an alternative to surgery, but so far no ideal device has been developed for this procedure. METHODS: In the study centre, between April, 2011 and October, 2016, the ventricular septal defect of 49 patients was closed percutaneously using the Amplatzer Duct Occluder-II device, and seven of them were <1 year old...

BACKGROUND: Malnutrition is common in children with CHD and is likely to place them at an increased risk for adverse surgical outcomes. We sought to evaluate the impact of preoperative malnutrition on outcomes after paediatric cardiac surgery. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of patients from age 0 to 5 years undergoing cardiac surgery at Seattle Children's Hospital from 2006 to 2015. We used regression modelling to examine the impact of malnutrition on surgical outcomes...

BACKGROUND: In very low birth weight infants, persistence of a patent ductus arteriosus results in morbidity and mortality. Therapies to close the ductus are effective, but clinical outcomes may depend on the accuracy of diagnosis and the timing of administration. The objective of the present study was to characterise the association between early echocardiography, therapy for patent ductus arteriosus, and outcomes in very low birth weight infants. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study used electronic health record data on inborn infants of gestational age ⩽28 weeks and birth weight <1500 g who were discharged after day of life 7 from 362 neonatal ICU from 1997 to 2013...

BACKGROUND: Palivizumab is the standard immunoprophylaxis against serious disease due to respiratory syncytial virus infection. Current evidence-based prophylaxis guidelines may not address certain children with CHD within specific high-risk groups or clinical/management settings. METHODS: An international steering committee of clinicians with expertise in paediatric heart disease identified key questions concerning palivizumab administration; in collaboration with an additional international expert faculty, evidence-based recommendations were formulated using a quasi-Delphi consensus methodology...

Introduction Percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty is the primary treatment for critical pulmonary valve stenosis in neonates. Thus far, a few studies have reported long-term results of this technique in neonatal critical pulmonary valve stenosis. METHODS: We carried out a retrospective study of all consecutive newborns with critical pulmonary valve stenosis subjected to percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty at a single centre, between 1994 and 2014, to assess its immediate and long-term safety and efficacy...

A 10-month-old girl with type I Loeys-Dietz syndrome developed a conspicuous aortic root aneurysm that was well demonstrated on chest X-ray/CT reconstruction. She underwent successful valve-spare repair of the ascending aorta.

BACKGROUND: Automated external defibrillators can be life-saving in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. OBJECTIVE: Our aim was to review our experience of prescribing automated external defibrillators for children at increased risk of sudden arrhythmic death. METHODS: We reviewed all automated external defibrillators issued by the Scottish Paediatric Cardiac Electrophysiology Service from 2005 to 2015. All parents were given resuscitation training according to the Paediatric Resuscitation Guidelines, including the use of the automated external defibrillator...

We present the case of an infant with a single functional ventricle who developed ventricular dysfunction and heart failure due to an electrical activation delay and dyssynchrony. Earlier recognition of this potentially reversible aetiology may have changed her poor outcome.

BACKGROUND: Hypertension following primary coarctation repair affects up to a third of subjects. A number of studies suggest that future hypertension risk is reduced if primary repair is performed at a younger age. OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to evaluate the risk of future medical treatment for hypertension depending on age of primary coarctation repair. METHODS: This study was carried out at a tertiary paediatric cardiology referral centre...

We report the prenatal diagnosis and the neonatal follow-up of a patient with isolated total abnormal systemic venous connection to the left atrium. Right-sided and left-sided superior caval veins and the inferior caval vein were all connected to the left atrium. Pulmonary venous return was normal. This was associated with some right ventricular underdevelopment. To our knowledge, this is the first fetal description of this very rare congenital cardiac malformation.

Introduction Paediatricians with Expertise in Cardiology assess children with a full history, examination, and often perform an echocardiogram. A minority are then referred to an outreach clinic run jointly with a visiting paediatric cardiologist. The accuracy of the echocardiography diagnosis made by the Paediatrician with Expertise in Cardiology is unknown. Materials and methods We conducted a retrospective review of clinic letters for children seen in the outreach clinic for the first time between March, 2004 and March, 2011...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the experiences of parenting a child with hypoplastic left heart syndrome after the child has been discharged home from hospital. DESIGN: A study of the parents' experiences using face-to-face interviews and psychometric measures with parents whose child had survived stage surgery. SETTING: Parents were interviewed within the home environment or within the hospital if that was their choice. SUBJECTS: A total of 29 parents (16 mothers and 13 fathers) of surviving children...

BACKGROUND: Population-based registries report 95% 5-year survival for children undergoing surgery for CHD. This study investigated paediatric cardiac surgical outcomes in the Australian indigenous population. METHODS: All children who underwent cardiac surgery between May, 2008 and August, 2014 were studied. Demographic information including socio-economic status, diagnoses and co-morbidities, and treatment and outcome data were collected at time of surgery and at last follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Survival into adult life in patients with aortic coarctation is typical following surgical and catheter-based techniques to relieve obstruction. Late sequelae are recognised, including stroke, hypertension, and intracerebral aneurysm formation, with the underlying mechanisms being unclear. We hypothesised that patients with a history of aortic coarctation may have abnormalities of cerebral blood flow compared with controls. METHODS: Patients with a history of aortic coarctation underwent assessment of cerebral vascular function...

Kate Hanneman, Rachel Wald
A 29-year-old gravida1 para1 woman presented with increasing fatigue. Multi-modality imaging demonstrated the left coronary artery arising from the main pulmonary artery with large collateral vessels in the interventricular septum, in keeping with unrepaired anomalous left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery. Cardiac MRI T1 mapping demonstrated globally elevated non-contrast T1 and extracellular volume fraction values, which suggested the presence of diffuse interstitial myocardial fibrosis. Cardiac MRI T1 mapping allows for a new dimension of myocardial characterisation, providing insight into subtle, diffuse abnormalities at the tissue level...

Ronak Naik, Jason Johnson, T K S Kumar, Ranjit Philip, Umar Boston, Christopher J Knott-Craig
BACKGROUND: The porcine small intestinal extracellular matrix reportedly has the potential to differentiate into viable myocardial cells. When used in tetralogy of Fallot repair, it may improve right ventricular function. We evaluated right ventricular function after repair of tetralogy of Fallot with extracellular matrix versus bovine pericardium. METHOD: Subjects with non-transannular repair of tetralogy of Fallot with at least 1 year of follow-up were selected...
