Background: The Reveal LINQ™Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM) or Implantable Loop recorder (ILR), is a miniaturized, subcutaneous, single lead, electrocardiographic monitoring device which has been extensively used in the differential diagnosis of unexplained syncope and palpitations in adults. Patient Description: We describe an asymptomatic 20-month-old boy, noted to have incidental bradycardia on routine examination and in whom Holter monitoring revealed complete heart block (CHB)...

We report a 12-year-old child diagnosed with mycotic aneurysm at the site of coarctation of aorta (CoA) repair. Surgical intervention, though very high risk, is the mainstay of management. In selected cases endovascular stenting is being reported in adults. Here we report the use of an endovascular stent in a child.

Background: Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is the commonest group of congenital malformations and affects 7-8 per 1000 live born newborns. Nevertheless, it is estimated that more than 50% of babies with undiagnosed CHD are not detected by routine neonatal cardiac examination. Aim: To find the incidence of CHD in newborns and to determine the accuracy of pulse oximetry for detecting clinically unrecognized critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) in the newborns...

We present two cases of severe aortic coarctation detected in adulthood and who underwent successful relief by transcatheter stent deployment using a new covered stent, Optimus® stent (AndraTec GmbH Koblenz, Germany). One patient is a 46-year old female with resistant arterial hypertension, in whom coarctation was suspected on a follow-up transthoracic echocardiogram for bicuspid aortic valve disease and subsequently confirmed on magnetic resonance imaging. The second patient is a 68-year old male whose coarctation was diagnosed incidentally at coronary angiography being performed as part of the preoperative work-up for severe aortic stenosis...

M Tomar
We report a 4 year old child referred for routine cardiology evaluation as part of evaluation of murmur with scoliosis. On examination, there was mild duskiness. Echocardiography revealed bilateral superior vena cavae, a small innominate vein, a left superior vena cava to the left atrium and an intact coronary sinus. The findings were confirmed on computed tomography angiography. Percutaneous closure of the left superior vena cava by an Amplatzer vascular plug was done successfully. Although the patient was apparently asymptomatic, the procedure was done to prevent risk of cerebral emboli...

DiGeorge syndrome is polytopic developmental field defect which is usually associated with 22q11.2 microdeletion. However, this phenotype may be caused by other conditions. We report such a case and briefly review these alternative causes for this particular phenotype.

Background: Infants with critical left sided obstructive lesions usually present with left ventricle dysfunction and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Left ventricular dysfunction and pulmonary artery pressures usually normalize after relief of obstruction. In some, PAH persists despite adequate relief of obstruction. Patients and Methods: We retrospectively reviewed records of infants (less than 3 months) who underwent intervention for left sided obstruction (n=50) over four years (May 2012-May 2016)...

INTRODUCTION: Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute febrile, systemic vasculitic syndrome of unknown etiology, occurring primarily in children younger than 5 years of age. Administration of IVIG within the first 10 days after onset of fever in combination with high dose aspirin reduces the risk of coronary artery damage in KD. Though rare, giant aneurysms of the coronary arteries may develop in untreated cases and prove extremely challenging to manage. CASE PRESENTATION: A 9-month-old Caucasian boy presented to our paediatric emergency department with a 4-week history of intermittent pyrexia and irritability...

PHACE syndrome is a rare neurocutaneous disorder characterised by an association of infantile haemangiomas with structural anomalies of brain, cerebral vasculature, eye, aorta and chest wall.(1) Coarctation of aorta (COA) is most the common cardiac anomaly reported in PHACE syndrome. COA or interrupted aortic arch in PHACE is unique and complex both in location and character compared to the typical coarctation anatomy. Arterial tortuosity of the cerebral vasculature has been well described in literature in PHACE syndrome...

INTRODUCTION: Obesity is a chronic disease that often commences in childhood. Several publications have shown that a quarter to a third of Maltese children are overweight or obese. Malta will be the first country to measure height and weight (and hence Body Mass Index) for all school children in order to quantify the extent of the problem. METHODS: This study would include 46,000 children in 150 schools. This would be the first time that any country measured its entire childhood cohort, as opposed to sampling...

Simple transposition of the great arteries (TGA) occurs in 0.2 per 1000 live births. The condition is surgically repaired in the neonatal period by the arterial switch procedure (ASO) sometimes preceded by an atrial septostomy. The ASO involves transecting the great arteries and relocating them to the appropriate ventriculo-arterial (VA) connection with attachment of the disconnected coronary arteries to the aorta. In the process, the attachment of the pulmonary artery to the right ventricle involves the Le Compte manoeuvre and to achieve this the pulmonary arteries must be fully mobilised and sometimes the main pulmonary artery may require patch augmentation as well...
