Optimal choice of delivery site after a diagnosis of congenital heart disease (CHD) improves neonatal mortality and morbidity. We report the CHU of Liège experience and review the international recommendations. Between 2011 and 2016, 54 fetuses were diagnosed with CHD in our service. Retrospectively we estimated the appropriateness of the site of delivery considering the postnatal outcome. We confronted our experience with the recent international recommendations for in utero transfer to a tertiary center...

INTRODUCTION: Congenital heart disease (CHD) has an incidence of 8-10 cases per 1000 live births. In Mexico, there are 18,000-20,000 new cases per year. Most tertiary care centers for CHD attend only pediatric population; the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS) has a clinic that attends pediatric and adult population. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the demographic aspects of the CHD clinic of IMSS. METHODS: From 2011 to 2016 a cross-sectional study of the CC clinic of a third level hospital of the IMSS, including all patients with confirmed structural heart disease of recent diagnosis was carried out...

Children's heart diseases in Africa represent a public health problem that is difficult to cope with due to young population density, low socioeconomic status and lack of suitable technical platforms. This study aims to highlight the echocardiographic and therapeutic aspects of cardiopathies in children hospitalized at the pediatric department of the University Hospital Souro Sanou, Bobo-Dioulasso. We conducted a descriptive cross-sectional study over the period January 2013-December 2014 (24 months). It was based on a literature review of echocardiography reports performed on children under 15 years of age in the echocardiography laboratory of CHUSS and of medical records of their therapeutic follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Children's health programs in Sub-Saharan Africa have always been oriented primarily to infectious diseases and malnutrition. We are witnessing in the early 21(st) century an epidemiological transition marked by the decline of old diseases and the identification of new diseases including heart disease. Therefore, it is necessary to describe the spectrum of these diseases in order to better prepare health workers to these new challenges. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study focused on heart disease diagnosed by echocardiography in children seen from January 2006 to December 2014 in a pediatric hospital of Yaounde...

BACKGROUND: Transposition of the great arteries (TGA) is the most common cyanotic cardiopathy, with an incidence ranging between 0.2 and 0.4 per 1000 live births. Many patients not treated in the first few months of life may progress with severe pulmonary vascular disease. Treatment of these patients may include palliative surgery to redirect the flow at the atrial level. OBJECTIVE: Report our institutional experience with the palliative Senning procedure in children diagnosed with TGA and double outlet right ventricle with severe pulmonary vascular disease, and to evaluate the early and late clinical progression of the palliative Senning procedure...

REVIEW
Raquel Bouzo-López, Alicia González-Represas
For many years, the treatment of congenital heart diseases has been a field in which, based on the seriousness of these conditions, treatment options were viewed with the greatest deference. This has conditioned, in many cases, the interventions to be undertaken in each. In this sense, exercise was thought to have a negative impact and thus the practise of almost any physical activity was limited. Although there has recently been a change in the paradigm with respect to exercise, this idea continues to hold sway...

Copy number variation studies of known disorders have the potential to improve the characterization of clinical phenotypes and may help identifying candidate genes and their pathways. The authors described a child with congenital heart disease, microcephaly, facial dysmorphisms, developmental delay, learning difficulties, and behavioral problems. There was initially a clinical suspicion of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.2 DS), but molecular cytogenetic analysis (array genomic hybridization [aGH]) showed the presence of a de novo 3...

Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a common complication of congenital heart disease (CHD). Congenital cardiopathies are the most frequent congenital malformations. The prevalence in our country remains unknown, based on birthrate, it is calculated that 12,000 to 16,000 infants in our country have some cardiac malformation. In patients with an uncorrected left-to-right shunt, increased pulmonary pressure leads to vascular remodeling and endothelial dysfunction secondary to an imbalance in vasoactive mediators which promotes vasoconstriction, inflammation, thrombosis, cell proliferation, impaired apotosis and fibrosis...

Myocardial Bridging (MB) is a benign condition that may be considered as a possible cause of ischaemic cardiopathy up to myocardial infarction. The authors describe the autopsy case of an MB of circumflex artery in a person with a myocardial infarction of the posterior wall of the left ventricle. In this case, the chronic ischemic heart disease can be explained by the congenital anomaly and in the literature there is scientific evidence to support the thesis. The MB is a benign condition that in combination with other risk factors can cause ischemic heart disease...

The children with congenital heart disease are faced with a series of procedures in chronological sequence. Throughout this process the infant and their parents require timely information, education and preparation for discharge. However, the information about each of the aspects affected by the disease is usually addressed in isolation by different professionals and not as part of a comprehensive educational program. The educational program should consider the nature of the disease, of the users and educators during their planning and must be implemented by a multidisciplinary team, continuously during hospitalization and follow-up, using various teaching methods available, and incorporating the minimum content described in the literature...

In the 60-70 years of last century began the systematic study of complex congenital heart disease. The group of Dr. de la Cruz at the National Heart Institute of Mexico, based the segmental analysis of these heart in experimental study of embryological development. We could include exceptions to the complex cadiopathies, adding to the segmental classification, atrial situs, ventricular loop pedicle of the great arteries, the infundibular analysis. This presentation describes for the first time as a separate entity in the segmental analysis cadiopathies with great arteries side by side as a group with a different developmental mechanism to transposition and normally related or crossed great arteries...
