BACKGROUND: This study sought to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of perventricular device closure of a doubly committed sub-arterial ventricular septal defect (dcVSD) through a left infra-axillary approach. METHOD: Forty-five patients, with a dcVSD of less than 8 mm in diameter, were enrolled in this study. The pericardium was exposed and opened through a left infra-axillary mini-incision. Two parallel purse-string sutures were placed on the right ventricle outflow tract and under transesophageal echocardiography guidance, a delivery sheath loaded with the device was inserted into the right ventricle and advanced through the defect into the left ventricle...

OBJECTIVE: This paper aims to develop an algorithm that can detect unannounced meals and estimate meal sizes to achieve a robust glucose control. METHODS: A variable state dimension (VSD) algorithm is developed to detect unannounced meals and estimate meal sizes, where a Kalman filter operates on a quiescent state model when no meal is detected, and switches to a maneuvering state model to estimate meal information once the meal-induced glucose variability is statistically significant...

BACKGROUND: Major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (MAPCAs) are frequently found in association with pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect (PA/VSD). However, some patients with MAPCAs do not have PA/VSD but have a variety of other "atypical" anatomic diagnoses. METHODS: This was a retrospective review of patients with MAPCAs and atypical anatomy. The 50 patients with MAPCAs could be divided into two subgroups: (1) single ventricle anatomy (n = 33) and (2) two ventricle anatomy (n = 17)...

OBJECTIVE: To review long-term respiratory outcomes for tetralogy of Fallot and absent pulmonary valve (TOF/APV) in respiratory symptomatic populations. METHODS: Of 25 consecutive patients undergoing primary total correction for TOF/APV between 1987 and 2016, Sixteen patients (64%) with a preoperative respiratory disturbance were enrolled. The median age at operation was 1.9 months old, including 4 neonates and 12 infants. Ten patients (62.5%) preoperatively necessitated mechanical ventilator support...

There is association of increased NT with chromosomal and non-chromosomal abnormalities. AIM: The purpose of this systemic review was to review the pregnancy outcome of abnormal nuchal translucency. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The present systematic review was conducted by searching English language articles from sources such as International Medical Sciences, Medline, Web of science, Scopus, Google Scholar, PubMed, Index Copernicus, DOAJ, EBSCO-CINAHL...

Gerbode defects are rare Ventricular Septal Defects (VSD) constituting approximately one percent cases of congenital heart diseases. The genetic predispositions towards the Gerbode Defect (GD) have remained an unexplored area of study till date. We investigated the genotype-phenotype correlation in patients with Gerbode VSD. Molecular genetic study on Sanger sequencing and subsequent data analysis showed that the contributing sequence variations in the NKX2-5, GATA4 and TBX5 gene lies in one of the highly conserved regions and this region is responsible for encoding a functional protein...

Cortical spreading depression (CSD) is associated with traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke, migraines, and seizures. Typically, following TBIs and other insults, neuronal excitability in and around the area of the injury is affected, with reported increases in local glutamate signaling. Astrocytic glutamate transporters are critical for precise regulation of the extracellular glutamate availability. However, it remains unclear how impaired astrocytic glutamate transport or an acute TBI affect characteristics of the CSD...

BACKGROUND: neonatal cardiac surgery has evolved over the last 50 years with a large percentage of the patients achieving complete physiological repair in the neonatal period. The remaining patients achieve staged palliation with an increasing amount of success. OBJECTIVES: To report our experience with 1000 neonatal cardiac surgical procedures performed in the last 10 years. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of surgical outcome in all neonatal patients who underwent cardiac surgery between January 2007 and July 2016 at Schneider Children's Medical Center of Israel...

BACKGROUND: Right ventricular pacing can cause pacing-induced ventricular dysfunction (PIVD) correctable with biventricular pacing (BiVP). Factors associated with PIVD are poorly understood. METHODS: We reviewed children receiving epicardial dual-chamber pacemakers for complete heart block (CHB) after congenital heart disease (CHD) surgery. PIVD was defined as% fractional shortening <15% improving after BiVP. RESULTS: Between 2005 and 2014, 47 children <2years developed CHB after CHD surgery...

Development of membranous ventricular septal defects (VSD) is a rare complication of transcatheter aortic valve replacements (TAVR), and is recognized using intraoperative and postoperative imaging. We present two cases of this rare but serious complication; one was successfully managed conservatively and the other with valve-in-valve therapy. Management strategies for post-TAVR VSDs varies, but should be individualized to the clinical scenario. We performed a literature search and sought to identify various risk factors which may predispose patients to the development of VSD after TAVR...

The aim of the present study was to compare and observe the expression levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and miRNA-17-5p during the treatment of seawater-immersed blast-injury wounds (SIBIW) under different conditions of vacuum sealing drainage (VSD), and to identify the optimized range of VSD treatment and partially explain its mechanisms. The bilateral hips and scapulae of experimental pigs (weight, 25-30 kg) were subjected to blast-injury wounds, followed by the seawater immersion. The animals then underwent conventional dressing treatment under 120, 180 and 240 mmHg VSD...

Objective: To compare the efficacy and safety of percutaneous ventricular septal defect (VSD) closure under solely guidance of echocardiography and fluoroscopy. Methods: The retrospective study was conducted at Fuwai Hospital, between February 2014 and February 2015. The patients were divided into two groups. VSD closure was conducted in 42 patients under solely guidance of echocardiography, and 100 patients who were treated with percutaneous catheter closure under fluoroscopy guidance were selected as a control group...

Objective: Undiagnosed critical congenital heart disease (CCHD) was assessed before discharge from maternity hospital.Basic information was provided for screening CCHD in the early neonatal stage.Chi-squared test was used for comparison of categorical variables(detection rate of different types of CCHD). Method: A retrospective cohort study was conducted in neonates with CCHD who were admitted to Children's Hospital of Fudan University between 1 January 2012 and 31 December 2015. For comparing with the previously reported undiagnosed rate of CCHD at discharge, CCHD was defined as all duct dependent congenital heart disease (DDCHD) and any cyanotic CHD that required early surgery...

BACKGROUND: D-transposition of the great arteries (D-TGA) is one of the most common critical neonatal heart defects. Although there are clinical advantages to a prenatal diagnosis, D-TGA has had low prenatal detection internationally. Recent obstetrical ultrasound guidelines incorporating screening of cardiac outflows may improve prenatal detection of D-TGA. We sought to evaluate trends in the prenatal detection of D-TGA with/without ventricular septal defect (VSD) in Alberta over the past 13 years, examining the potential impact of enhanced ultrasound guidelines in 2009-2010 and 2013 and factors impacting detection...
