BACKGROUND: There are patients born with pulmonary atresia and a ductus arteriosus or hemi-truncus to one lung and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (MAPCAs) to the contralateral lung. The purpose of this study was to review our surgical results for this relatively rare subset of patients. METHODS: This was a retrospective review of 35 patients with ductus/hemi-truncus in association with pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect and MAPCAs. Our surgical algorithm is bifurcated into two strategies: 1) patients with "favorable" MAPCAs are candidates for single stage complete repair, and 2) patients with "unfavorable" MAPCAs undergo a staged approach...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the performance of first trimester biochemical markers, pregnancy-associated plasma protein-A (PAPP-A), free beta human chorionic gonadotropin (fβ-hCG), and nuchal translucency (NT) in detection of severe congenital heart defects (CHDs). METHODS: During the study period from 1 January 2008 to 31 December 2011, biochemical markers and NT were measured in 31,144 women as part of voluntary first trimester screening program for Down's syndrome in Northern Finland...

The primary toxicity of hydrogen peroxide results from its interaction with catalase, which liberates water and oxygen. We report the case of a 14-year-old Japanese girl with portal venous gas that was caused by oxygen liberated from intentionally ingested hydrogen peroxide. Although she had a past history of atrial septal defect, recovery without cardiac or neurological sequelae was achieved using hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Emergency physicians must be aware of the danger of liberated oxygen due to hydrogen peroxide ingestion...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to assess procedural characteristics, early clinical outcome, and long-term complications after transcatheter closure of atrial septal defect (ASD) in children. BACKGROUND: Transcatheter closure has become the preferred strategy in most cases of isolated secundum ASD. However, reported experience in the pediatric population is limited. METHODS: A 1998 to 2016 retrospective multicenter study was performed in 9 French tertiary institutions...

Down syndrome occurs more frequently in the offsprings of older pregnant women and may be associated with atrioventricular septal defect. This refers to a broad spectrum of malformations characterized by a deficiency of the atrioventricular septum and abnormalities of the atrioventricular valves caused by an abnormal fusion of the superior and inferior endocardial cushions with the midportion of the atrial septum and the muscular portion of the ventricular septum.

REVIEW

Congenital heart interventions are now replacing surgical palliation and correction in an evolving number of congenital heart defects. Right ventricular outflow tract and ductus arteriosus stenting have demonstrated favorable outcomes compared to surgical systemic to pulmonary artery shunting, and it is likely surgical pulmonary valve replacement will become an uncommon procedure within the next decade, mirroring current practices in the treatment of atrial septal defects. Challenges remain, including the lack of device design focused on smaller infants and the inevitable consequences of somatic growth...

Persistent mullerian duct syndrome (PMDS) is a rare form of male pseudohermaphroditism caused by defects in synthesis or actions of mullerian inhibiting factor characterised by persistence of mullerian duct structures in a normal karyotype male. Transverse testicular ectopia (TTE) is a rare disease in which both testes are located in the same inguinal canal. We report a case of PMDS with TTE in a 1-year-old child who presented with non-palpable testis on right side with hernia on left side. Left herniotomy with bilateral trans-septal orchidopexy was done in this patient...

BACKGROUND: Atrial septal defect (ASD) is one of the most common cardiac malformations worldwide. Several genes have been identified so far, which can merely explain small proportion of all the cases, therefore, it is anticipated that there are additional genes causing ASD. The aims of this study were to identify the causal gene of ostium secundum atrial septal defect (ASDII) in a Chinese family. METHODS: Whole exome sequencing was performed in three affected members and one control in the ASDII family...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: While the safety and efficacy of percutaneous ASD closure has been established, new data have recently emerged regarding the negative impact of residual iatrogenic ASD (iASD) following left heart structural interventions. Additionally, new devices with potential advantages have recently been studied. We will review here the potential indications for closure of iASD along with new generation closure devices and potential late complications requiring long-term follow-up...

INTRODUCTION: Malnutrition is common in children with congenital heart disease (CHD). Medical treatment and surgical interventions contribute improving the nutritional status of these children. OBJECTIVE: To describe nutritional recovery in children with CHD and associated factors after surgery. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Longitudinal study. 46 Children under 18 years old admitted for CHD surgery between April 2015 and April 2016 were recruited...

Pulmonary atresia (PA) and ventricular septal defect (VSD) can occur in a variety of ways, from simple valve atresia to a condition in which circulation to the pulmonary bed occurs through collateral arteries separated from the aorta and there are no real pulmonary arteries, or they are present but hypoplastic. The size of the pulmonary arteries and concomitant complex cardiac lesions are important in making decisions about treatment and correctional alternatives. While complete correction surgeries in the style of a correction of tetralogy of Fallot are performed in simpler cases, many very invasive procedures are also performed and the resulting quality of life is very variable...

The NR2F2 gene plays an important role in angiogenesis and heart development. Moreover, this gene is involved in organogenesis in many other organs in mouse models. Variants in this gene have been reported in a number of patients with nonsyndromic atrioventricular septal defect, and in one patient with congenital heart defect and dysmorphic features. Here we report an 11-month-old Caucasian male with global developmental delay, dysmorphic features, coarctation of the aorta, and ventricular septal defect. He was later found to have a pathogenic mutation in the NR2F2 gene by whole exome sequencing...

BACKGROUND: Left atrial decompression is considered in patients with symptomatic heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). We aimed to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of transcatheter generation of a restrictive atrial septum communication to manage HFpEF from infancy to adulthood with cardiomyopathy and congenital heart defect. METHODS AND RESULTS: From June 2009 to December 2016, 24 patients (50% with an age less than 16 years) with HFpEF were palliated; NYHA-/Ross class IV (n = 10); median systemic ventricular ejection fraction 64 (range 35-78) %...

BACKGROUND: Aortic pseudoaneurysms are rare but life-threatening complications usually seen after cardiac surgery. The causes could be multifactorial such as infection or trauma.

BACKGROUND: Secundum atrial septal defect (SASD) closure is contraindicated in the presence of severe pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH). However, there is no consensus on the threshold of severe PAH, in terms of mean pulmonary artery pressure (mPAP), which would contraindicate for defect closure surgery in adults. Furthermore, PAH can persist, or even increase in severity, after the closure. The aim of this study was to produce a predictive model correlating mPAP in adult SASD patients with PAH after defect closure surgery...
