The functional significance of pulmonary arterial end-diastolic forward flow (EDFF) in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF) is not fully understood, with conflicting reports regarding its associations with pulmonary regurgitation (PR), right ventricular (RV) size and function, and so-called restrictive RV physiology. To examine these associations, we retrospectively analyzed 399 patients with rTOF who had contemporaneous echocardiography (Echo) and cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) studies...

BACKGROUND: Electrical dyssynchrony and prolonged QRS duration are common in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (ToF). It has been linked to increased risk of sudden cardiac death and right ventricular (RV) dysfunction. We investigated myocardial dyssynchrony using cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) and feature tracking analysis (FT) in this setting and compared it to myocardial deformation, conventional parameters of ventricular dysfunction and clinical parameters. METHODS AND RESULTS: Patients underwent standardized CMR investigations as part of a nationwide study...

OBJECTIVES: Indications for pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) in patients with pulmonary regurgitation (PR) after repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rToF) are debated. We aimed to compare right (RV) and left ventricular (LV) kinetic energy (KE) measured by 4D-flow magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients to controls, to further understand the pathophysiological effects of PR. METHODS: Fifteen patients with rToF with PR > 20% and 14 controls underwent MRI. Ventricular volumes and KE were quantified from cine MRI and 4D-flow, respectively...

Pulmonary atresia (PA) and ventricular septal defect (VSD) can occur in a variety of ways, from simple valve atresia to a condition in which circulation to the pulmonary bed occurs through collateral arteries separated from the aorta and there are no real pulmonary arteries, or they are present but hypoplastic. The size of the pulmonary arteries and concomitant complex cardiac lesions are important in making decisions about treatment and correctional alternatives. While complete correction surgeries in the style of a correction of tetralogy of Fallot are performed in simpler cases, many very invasive procedures are also performed and the resulting quality of life is very variable...

During transcatheter pulmonary valve placement, coronary compression observed during simultaneous right ventricular outflow tract angioplasty and coronary angiography typically contraindicates valve implantation. We present a unique patient with tetralogy of Fallot who underwent successful transcatheter Melody valve placement despite coronary compression observed during right ventricular outflow tract balloon angioplasty.

BACKGROUND: Tissue engineering has advanced the technique of decellularization of the heart valve. The valve is reseeded with the patient's own cells after implantation with suppression of immunologic reactions. The same advantage has been reported for fresh decellularized heart valves, and more than 10 years of excellent outcomes have been achieved. We began performing such heart valve implantations in 2013 as part of a clinical study at Osaka University. We report our evaluation of the safety and efficacy of heart valve implantation...

Absent superior vena cava (SVC) is an asymptomatic congenital systemic venous anomaly which is rarely detected and compatible with normal life. Undiagnosed absent SVC may cause problems during cardiac catheterization or cardiac surgery. We present our surgical experience in a patient with tetralogy of Fallot who had undiagnosed absent SVC.

Left ventricular (LV) dysfunction is a risk factor for adverse outcomes in older children and adults with repaired Tetralogy of Fallot (rToF). Pulmonary regurgitation (PR), right ventricular (RV) dilation, and dysfunction have been shown to result in abnormal LV myocardial mechanics and dysfunction. The aim of our study was to evaluate LV rotational mechanics, especially apical rotation in young children with rToF with and without RV dilation. This is a retrospective, single center study in 28 asymptomatic young children with rToF (16 with RV dilation; 12 without RV dilation); 29 age-matched normal controls...

BACKGROUND: Right ventricular (RV) dysfunction is associated with adverse long-term outcomes in patients with tetralogy of Fallot. Little is known about RV function in the first years after surgical repair. The aim of this study was to investigate perioperative changes in myocardial deformation using global longitudinal strain. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of patients with surgically repaired tetralogy of Fallot was performed. Global longitudinal peak systolic RV strain was measured on early postoperative echocardiograms, two subsequent postoperative echocardiograms through 2 years postoperatively, and preoperative echocardiograms, when available...

BACKGROUND: Surveillance of congenital anomalies is important to identify potential teratogens. METHODS: This study analysed the prevalence of 61 congenital anomaly subgroups (excluding chromosomal) in 25 population-based EUROCAT registries (1980-2012). Live births, fetal deaths and terminations of pregnancy for fetal anomaly were analysed with multilevel random-effects Poisson regression models. RESULTS: Seventeen anomaly subgroups had statistically significant trends from 2003-2012; 12 increasing and 5 decreasing...

We describe the case of a 32-month-old patient from a developing country with tetralogy of Fallot associated with a severe biventricular dysfunction. This association is rare but makes the surgical strategy complex and potentially contraindicated. An acute severe hypoxic episode led us to perform palliative rescue intervention involving the placement of an undersized systemic-to-pulmonary shunt. This surgery was well tolerated and allowed a fast and impressive recovery of the ventricular function, making complete repair possible...

Pseudoaneurysm of the ascending aorta following a central aortopulmonary shunt is a rare and potentially fatal complication. Loss of pulmonary artery continuity is another complication following an aortopulmonary shunt. We report an unusual combination of these two complications following an aortopulmonary shunt performed in a child with tetralogy of Fallot. This was managed successfully along with intracardiac repair of tetralogy of Fallot incorporating only the left pulmonary artery.

Aortic root dilatation is a well-known complication in patients with congenital aortic valve malformation, tetralogy of Fallot, or a double outlet right ventricle. We report two rare patients who underwent composite graft replacement of the aortic root with a mechanical valve, the so-called Bentall-type operation, after Fontan completion. The pathological examination on the resected aortic wall revealed mucoid degeneration in tunica media and elastic fiber fragmentation. Our report emphasizes the need for close observation of these patients over a long-term period...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Congenital heart disease (CHD) represents the most common congenital malformation. The objective of this study was to analyse the incidence of CHD in Spain, and it is the first nationwide study so far. METHODS: A retrospective observational study was performed in order to evaluate the incidence of CHD in Spain. The administrative database (minimum basic data set) from 2003 to 2012 was analysed in children less than one year old admitted to hospital with codes of CHD (International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, clinical modification)...

OBJECTIVES: Closure of multiple muscular ventricular septal defects (VSDs) remains a challenge because of anatomical complexity. METHODS: We mapped all the VSDs using en face reconstruction of the right ventricular septal surface through echocardiography and then performed an 'Intraoperative Customized Double-Patch Device' technique to surgically close them in 39 patients (male:female = 25:14). The median age of the patients was 6 months (2 months-10 years), and mean weight was 5...
