INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: X-linked cardiac valvular dysplasia is a rare form of male-specific congenital heart defect mainly characterized by myxomatous degeneration of the atrioventricular valves with variable hemodynamic consequences. It is caused by genetic defects in FLNA-encoded filamin A, a widely expressed actin-binding protein that regulates cytoskeleton organization. Filamin A loss of function has also been associated with often concurring neurologic and connective tissue manifestations, with mutations in the first half of the Rod 1 domain apparently expressing the full cardiac phenotype...

OBJECTIVES: The Blalock-Taussig shunt (BTS) operation is a cornerstone as initial palliative surgery for congenital heart disease with severely reduced pulmonary blood flow (PBF). The ideal PBF provided by BTS is crucial for an uneventful postoperative course, since excess PBF results in acute distress of the systemic circulation and insufficient PBF requires another BTS surgery. Therefore, the goal of this study was to develop a simple device to control the shunt graft flow percutaneously using a constrictor balloon connected to a subcutaneous port...

The number of the adult patients with congenital heart diseases (ACHD) continues to grow owing to improvement of surgical results and medical management. Corrective surgery for complex CHD does not always mean complete cure. It is not rare that the patients will visit the cardiology institutes because of secondary lesions due to residua or sequela in adults. Some patients with CHD remain unrepairable with different degree of heart failure and pulmonary arterial hypertension. Association of arrhythmias is common in ACHD patients and sometimes critical...

OBJECTIVE: Congenital cardiac malformations with high pulmonary blood flow and pressure due to left-to-right shunts are usually repaired in early infancy for both the benefits of early relief of heart failure and the fear that the concomitant pulmonary hypertension may become irreversible unless these defects are corrected at an early age. Age, however, has been a poor predictor of irreversibility of pulmonary hypertension in our experience, which is presented here. DESIGN: A retrospective observational study...

During the last 10 years, there have been major technological achievements in pediatric interventional cardiology. In addition, there have been several advances in cardiac imaging, especially in 3-dimensional imaging of echocardiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and cineangiography. Therefore, more types of congenital heart diseases can be treated in the cardiac catheter laboratory today than ever before. Furthermore, lesions previously considered resistant to interventional therapies can now be managed with high success rates...

OBJECTIVES: Diagnosing fetal heart failure remains challenging because it is difficult to know how well the fetal myocardium will perform as loading conditions change. In adult cardiology, natriuretic peptides (NPs) are established marker of heart failure. However, the number of studies investigating NP levels in fetuses is quite limited. The aim of this study was to evaluate the significance of plasma NP levels in the assessment of heart failure in fetuses with congenital heart defect (CHD) and arrhythmia...

Life expectancy and quality of life for those born with congenital heart disease (CHD) have greatly improved over the past 3 decades. While representing a great advance for these patients, who have been able to move from childhood to successful adult lives in increasing numbers, this development has resulted in an epidemiological shift and a generation of patients who are at risk of developing chronic multisystem disease in adulthood. Noncardiac complications significantly contribute to the morbidity and mortality of adults with CHD...

A genetic basis of congenital heart disease (CHD) has been known for decades. In addition to the sequence of the genome, the contribution of epigenetics to pediatric cardiology is increasingly recognized. Multiple epigenetic mechanisms, including DNA methylation, histone modification, and RNA-based regulation, are known mediators of cardiovascular disease, including both development and progression of CHD and its sequelae. Basic understanding of the concepts of epigenetics will be essential to all pediatric cardiologists in order to understand mechanisms of pathophysiology, pharmacotherapeutic concepts, and to understand the role of epigenetics in precision medicine...

BACKGROUND: Growing up with congenital heart disease (CHD) often means transfer to adult care and lifelong medical follow-up. An optimal transition process usually involves a multipart collaboration between the patient, their parents and other family members, and the healthcare providers. Taking an active role while knowing when it is time to step aside can be difficult for all the concerned parties, even the healthcare professionals. The aim of the present study therefore, was to explore parents' expectations and needs during their adolescent's transition to adult care...

Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is the most common type of congenital heart defect (CHD) and is associated with clinically significant cardiovascular complications including valve calcification and ascending aortopathy (AscAo), predominantly occurring in adulthood. While a limited number of genetic etiologies for BAV have been defined, family members of affected individuals display BAV along with other left-sided CHD. This has led to guidelines from the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology that recommend echocardiographic screening of first-degree relatives of affected adults...
