STUDY OBJECTIVE: Children with congenital or acquired heart disease have an increased risk of anesthesia related morbidity and mortality. The child's anesthetic risk is related to the severity of their underlying cardiac disease, associated comorbidities, and surgical procedure. The goal of this project was to determine the ease of use of a preoperative risk stratification tool for assigning pediatric cardiac staff and to determine the relative frequency that children with low, moderate, and high risk cardiac disease present for non-cardiac surgery at a tertiary pediatric hospital...

The purpose of this work was to validate a parallel imaging (PI) and compressed sensing (CS) combined reconstruction method for a recently proposed 4D non-breath-held, multiphase, steady-state imaging technique (MUSIC) cardiovascular MRI in a cohort of pediatric congenital heart disease patients. We implemented a graphics processing unit accelerated CS-PI combined reconstruction method and applied it in 13 pediatric patients who underwent cardiovascular MRI after ferumoxytol administration. Conventional breath-held contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (CE-MRA) was first performed during the first pass of ferumoxytol injection, followed by the original MUSIC and the proposed CS-PI MUSIC during the steady-state distribution phase of ferumoxytol...

BACKGROUND: Acquired von Willebrand syndrome (AvWS) in the setting of congenital heart disease is an under-recognized cause of bleeding in the pediatric cardiac critical care unit. METHODS: Fourteen patients diagnosed with AvWS admitted to the cardiac intensive care unit at the Children's National Health System between December 2009 and September 2015 were identified with subsequent chart review and case analysis. RESULTS: Of the 14 patients included in this study, 4 patients were on ventricular-assist devices, 6 patients were on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, and 4 were patients with congenital heart disease not receiving any mechanical circulatory support...

Kawasaki disease is an acute, self-limited vasculitis of childhood and has become the leading cause of acquired pediatric heart disease in the USA. Prompt treatment is essential in reducing cardiac-related morbidity and mortality. The underlying etiology remains unknown. The disease itself may be the characteristic manifestation of a common pathway of immune-mediated vascular inflammation in susceptible hosts. The characteristic clinical features of fever for at least 5 days with bilateral nonpurulent conjunctivitis, rash, changes in lips and oral cavity, changes in peripheral extremities, and cervical lymphadenopathy remain the mainstay of diagnosis...

INTRODUCTION: Congenital heart defects (CHDs) are an important cause of mortality and morbidity in children representing a major global health burden. It is thus important to determine their prevalence and spectrum and identify risk factors associated with the development of heart defects. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A case-control study was carried out in the Department of Pediatrics and Center of Cardiology, Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, India, from February 2014 to August 2015...

BACKGROUND: The balance of hemostasis and anticoagulation is a concern for patients dependent upon ventricular assist devices (VADs). Bleeding is a common complication with both short- and long-term use of these devices. A better understanding of the risk factors and etiologies of bleeding associated with these devices is needed and could improve the overall results. We sought to determine the relationship of mechanical circulatory assist device use with acquired von Willebrand disease (avWD) in children...

BACKGROUND: A comprehensive cardiac magnetic resonance (cardiac MR) study including both late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) and MR angiography may be indicated for patients with a history of acquired or congenital heart disease. OBJECTIVE: To study the novel use of an extracellular agent for assessment of LGE combined with a blood pool contrast agent for detailed MR angiography evaluation to yield a comprehensive cardiac MR study in these patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We reviewed clinical cardiac MR studies utilizing extracellular and blood pool contrast agents and noted demographics, clinical data and adverse events...

BACKGROUND: Clostridium difficile is a major cause of antibiotic-associated diarrhea and frequently results in healthcare-associated infections. The aim of this study was to determine the incidence and potential risk factors for C. difficile infection (CDI) in hospitalized children who developed diarrhea. A retrospective study was performed at a university hospital in İstanbul over a three-year period (2012-2014). RESULTS: During the study period 12,196 children were hospitalized, among them 986 (8 %) children with diarrhea were investigated for CDI and 100 (0...

PURPOSE: To develop and validate a cardiac-respiratory self-gating strategy for the recently proposed multiphase steady-state imaging with contrast enhancement (MUSIC) technique. METHODS: The proposed SG strategy uses the ROtating Cartesian K-space (ROCK) sampling, which allows for retrospective k-space binning based on motion surrogates derived from k-space center line. The k-space bins are reconstructed using a compressed sensing algorithm. Ten pediatric patients underwent cardiac MRI for clinical reasons...

OBJECTIVE: The objectives of this review are to describe the education and critical thinking skills that characterize pediatric critical care nursing and how these skills impact patient care and outcomes in pediatric cardiac critical care. DATA SOURCE: MEDLINE and PubMed. CONCLUSIONS: Pediatric cardiac critical care nurses manage complex and vulnerable patients requiring various levels of support. Effective care of these patients requires knowledge about the complex anatomy and physiology associated with congenital and acquired heart disease, as well as the effects of mechanical ventilation, mechanical circulatory support, and vasoactive medications...

OBJECTIVES: The Pediatric Advanced Life Support recommendations were developed for otherwise healthy infants and children with normal cardiac anatomy. Patients with acquired and congenital heart disease require specific considerations that may differ from the Pediatric Advanced Life Support recommendations. Our aim is to present prearrest, arrest, and postarrest considerations that are unique to children with congenital and acquired heart disease. DATA SOURCE: MEDLINE and PubMed...

BACKGROUND: Present resource-based relative value unit (RVU) assignment for echocardiography is based on Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes, which do not incorporate complexity of diagnosis, time spent for image acquisition, or interpretation of echocardiograms. The objective of this study was to determine whether CPT-based RVU assignment accurately reflects physician effort in performing and interpreting pediatric echocardiographic examinations. METHODS: Cardiac complexity category (CCC) and physician time for study interpretation of 123 echocardiograms (June to September 2013) were prospectively assigned...

Kawasaki disease is an acute self-limiting systemic vasculitis. It is the most common cause of acquired heart disease, with the risk of developing coronary artery aneurysms, myocardial infarction and sudden death. Diagnosis is based on the presence of fever in addition to other clinical criteria. The quarter of the Kawasaki disease patients have "incomplete" presentation. Treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin within ten days of fever onset improves clinical outcomes and reduces the incidence of coronary artery dilation to less than 5%...

INTRODUCTION: Kawasaki disease (KD) is a major cause of acquired heart disease in children, and there is limited information on postmortem findings in the pediatric population in Canada. CASES: For a 15-year time span (January 2000-March 2015), we had 2 cases of KD presented to the Department of Forensic Pathology at Hamilton General Hospital. DISCUSSION: There were common cardiac findings including presence of giant coronary artery aneurysms and microscopic changes occurring within the coronary arteries and the myocardium...

INTRODUCTION: In pediatric patients with pacemakers implanted for atrioventricular block (AVB), nonsustained ventricular tachycardia (NSVT) detected during routine surveillance is a finding of unknown significance. We sought to describe the incidence of NSVT and determine if there was an association between NSVT and adverse outcomes in these patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: This is a single-center retrospective study of 136 patients (1971-2013) with pacemakers implanted for advanced and complete AVB...
