Ischemic stroke is uncommon in pediatric populations and is sometimes caused by cardiac myxoma. In such cases, neurological deficits initially present in ischemic stroke due to emboli or thrombi of the myxoma. Echocardiography is helpful to diagnose myxoma in a timely manner and allows urgent surgical resection of the myxoma. We report a successful case of myxoma in a 7-year-old boy who initially presented with left-sided hemiparesis.

Significant advancements have been made in the diagnosis and management of congenital heart disease (CHD). As a result, a higher percentage of these patients are surviving to adulthood. Despite this improvement in management, these patients remain at higher risk of morbidity and mortality, particularly in the perioperative setting. One new area of interest in these patients is the implementation of simulation-based medical education. Simulation has demonstrated various benefits across high-acuity scenarios encountered in the hospital...

BACKGROUND: Assessment of left atrial (LA) size and function is important in a number of pediatric cardiac conditions including those affecting the diastolic performance of the left ventricle. Measurements of LA volume and strain by two-dimensional echocardiography rely upon inaccurate geometric assumptions and are hampered by out-of-plane motion. The objective of this study was to characterize LA volumes and strain by three-dimensional echocardiography in healthy children. METHODS: LA volumes and strain were retrospectively measured by three-dimensional echocardiography in healthy children with no known structural or functional heart disease using a commercial speckle-tracking package applied to the LA to compute maximum volume (Vmax), minimum volume (Vmin), ejection volume (LAEV), ejection fraction (LAEF), and the following components of global strain: 3D principal (3DS), longitudinal (GLS), and circumferential (GCS)...

Genetic testing is recommended in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM); however, limited studies demonstrate high yields of genetic testing in non-hypertrophic (HCM) patients. Furthermore, there is sparse genotype-phenotype data in pediatric DCM patients. We performed a retrospective review of 70 consecutive probands with cardiomyopathy (non-HCM) who underwent genetic evaluation. Mean age at presentation was 5.48 years. Echocardiography revealed mean ejection fraction of 32.4%. The LVEDd z score ranged from - 5...
