BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common following cardiopulmonary bypass. Fontan completion may result in systemic venous hypertension and low cardiac output, reducing renal perfusion pressure (RPP) and further increasing the risk of AKI. We investigated the incidence and risk factors for post-Fontan AKI. METHODS: Single-center retrospective study of children undergoing Fontan completion from 2005 to 2012. Demographic and hemodynamic variables were assessed for association with AKI...

OBJECTIVE: Since April 2010, our institution has repaired complete atrioventricular septal defects (CAVSDs) with a two-patch technique utilizing CorMatrix extracellular material. This material is potentially an attractive patch because of its theorized eventual integration with the host tissue. We sought to analyze initial outcomes of CAVSD repair with CorMatrix. METHODS: Data were collected on consecutive pediatric (age <18) patients receiving two-patch CAVSD repairs with CorMatrix at a single institution from April 2010 to July 2014...

OBJECTIVES: Open heart surgery for interrupted aortic arch in the neonatal period is still a high-risk procedure related in part to patient factors such as low birth weight, other morphologic anomalies, and, especially, small aortic valve size. Recently, we performed hybrid palliation with bilateral pulmonary artery banding and ductal stenting as the first-stage palliation for such cases. In this study, the outcomes of this procedure were examined. METHODS: Six cases of interrupted aortic arch with a small aortic valve underwent the hybrid procedure in the neonatal period in our institute from 2010 to 2015 (mean age: 6...

BACKGROUND: Adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD) undergoing systemic atrioventricular valve (SAVV) surgery are a complex, understudied population. We assessed midterm outcomes and prognostic factors in ACHD undergoing SAVV surgery. METHODS: We performed retrospective evaluation of ACHD undergoing SAVV surgery from January 2005 to February 2016: 14 (33%) patients with congenital mitral valve stenosis/regurgitation, 15 (35%) with atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD), and 14 (33%) with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) with systemic tricuspid valve regurgitation...

PURPOSE: Virtual surgery involves the planning and simulation of surgical reconstruction using three-dimensional (3D) modeling based upon individual patient data, augmented by simulation of planned surgical alterations including implantation of devices or grafts. Here we describe a case in which virtual cardiac surgery aided us in determining the optimal conduit size to use for the reconstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract. DESCRIPTION: The patient is a young adolescent male with a history of tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia, requiring right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery (RV-PA) conduit replacement...

Peter P Roeleveld, Eline G Zwijsen
BACKGROUND: Paradoxical hypertension after repair of coarctation of the aorta is a well-known phenomenon. The pathogenesis involves the activation of the sympathetic nervous system (first phase) and renin-angiotensin system (second phase). Only a limited number of different treatment strategies have been published in the literature, without any comparative studies. METHODS: Our aim was to describe the current international practice variation surrounding pharmacological treatment currently being employed to treat paradoxical hypertension following the repair of coarctation of the aorta in children...

OBJECTIVES: Anomalous aortic origin of a coronary artery is uncommon but potentially clinically significant. Manifestations vary from asymptomatic patients to those who present with angina pectoris, myocardial infarction, heart failure, syncope, arrhythmias, and sudden death. We describe our experience with surgical reimplantation and results at midterm follow-up. METHODS: Between February 2003 and July 2016, a total of 13 patients with anomalous origin of the right coronary artery (RCA) from the left sinus underwent surgical reimplantation...

OBJECTIVES: In the surgical treatment of pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum, the size of the tricuspid valve annulus (as measured by z-scores) has emerged as a significant factor in deciding which repair to perform. Various tricuspid valve annulus z-scores are reported as "cutoffs" for successful biventricular repair. We aimed to determine whether the use of different z-score data sets contributed to the gross variation in "cutoffs" for successful biventricular repair reported in the literature...

Delayed sternal closure is commonly required following cardiac surgery. This strategy has proven itself very helpful, especially after cardiac transplantation with significant donor/recipient size mismatch. However, at the time of chest closure, acute changes in intrathoracic pressure may be challenging. In this study, we describe our technique of gradual chest approximation, which facilitates closure in difficult situations.

Infective endocarditis (IE) is an uncommon condition among patients with congenital heart disease, however it can be life threatening. The usual management includes replacement of the affected valve, especially in patients with aortic valve compromise, and is even more common in previously repaired valves. In this case report, we describe the successful reconstruction of an aortic root destroyed by IE, in a patient with history of ballooning of a congenital aortic stenosis.

When the interventricular septum is intact, a well-formed non-systemic ventricle with no outlet is prone to hypertension and hypertrophy after Fontan operation. Herein, we report a patient who had a complex d-transposition of the great arteries palliated over 14 years ago with a Fontan operation and presented with a hypertensive left ventricle (LV) contributing to heart failure. He underwent surgical creation of a ventricular septal defect to decompress the LV and was able to resume his desired lifestyle.

We describe a neonate with severe left ventricular (LV) dysfunction manifesting soon after birth, who required extracorporeal life support (ECLS). Multiple attempts at separation from ECLS resulted in high left atrial pressures and hemorrhagic pulmonary edema. The inability to separate from ECLS after ten days prompted an unconventional treatment strategy. We performed a modified Norwood operation for LV rehabilitation on day 10 of ECLS. This was followed by successful separation from ECLS. Left ventricular function recovered, and the child underwent conversion to a biventricular circulation on 128 days post-Norwood...

A term neonate was cannulated for venoarterial extracorporeal life support (ECLS) via the right neck for non-postoperative junctional ectopic tachycardia. Initial echocardiogram demonstrated an echogenic strand in the transverse arch. Computed tomography angiogram confirmed arterial dissection of the right common carotid artery that extended into the proximal transverse arch. Dissection flap was repaired at the time of ECLS decannulation without cardiopulmonary bypass. Follow-up computed tomography angiogram revealed a segment of narrowing of approximately 50% of the right common carotid artery without false lumen or aneurysm...

PURPOSE: Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (CC-TGA) is a complex form of congenital heart defect with numerous anatomic subgroups. The majority of patients with CC-TGA are excellent candidates for a double-switch procedure. However, in the absence of an unrestrictive ventricular septal defect or subpulmonary stenosis, the left ventricle (LV) may undergo involution and require retraining prior to double switch. The purpose of this study was to review our experience with patients having CC-TGA who required LV retraining prior to a double-switch procedure...

BACKGROUND: Mortality through single-ventricle palliation remains high and the effect of the timing of stage 2 palliation (S2P) is not well understood. We investigated current practice patterns in the timing of S2P across two professional societies and compared them to actual practice patterns from two databases of patients who underwent S2P. METHODS: A ten-question survey was distributed to the members of the Congenital Heart Surgeons' Society (CHSS) and the European Congenital Heart Surgeons' Association (ECHSA)...
