AIMS: TCF21 knockout mice display cardiac defects, including ventricular septal defects (VSDs). Functional rs12190287 polymorphisms located within the 3' untranslated region (3'-UTR) of TCF21 were associated with a risk of coronary heart disease in the European and Eastern populations. However, whether rs12190287 polymorphisms in the TCF21-3'UTR confer predisposition to congenital heart disease (CHD) is unclear. METHODS: A case-control study was designed consisting of 781 nonsyndromic VSD patients and 867 non-CHD control subjects...

Retroaortic course of coronary artery is a relative contraindication for device closure of an atrial septal defect. In this brief report, we demonstrate, for the first time, inferior aortic recess mimicking retroaortic left circumflex coronary artery in a patient with atrial septal defect. This distinction is important to avoid spurious diagnosis of anomalous coronary artery denying patient a chance of nonsurgical closure of atrial septal defect.

A 68 year-old man with a severe ischemic cardiomyopathy underwent left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation (Heart Mate II device) for destination therapy. He presented 49 months following LVAD implant with worsening heart failure symptoms and new severe aortic regurgitation. Given high risk for both surgical and transcatheter aortic valve replacement, he was admitted for transcatheter closure of the aortic valve under transesophageal echocardiographic (TEE) guidance. TEE imaging revealed severe aortic regurgitation (see Figure 1A and 1B, and multimedia files 1 and 2)...

Microdeletion 1q44 on the long arm of chromosome 1 leads to a phenotype that includes microcephaly, seizure, agenesis or hypogenesis of the corpus callosum, polydactyly, congenital heart defects and severe developmental delay along with characteristic facial dysmorphic signs. Until today, the distinct genetic causes for the different symptoms remain unclear. We here report a 1.2Mb de novo microdeletion 1q44 identified by performing a SNP array analysis. The female patient presented with microcephaly, seizure, hypogenesis of corpus callosum, postaxial hexadactyly, an atrial septal defect, a ventricular septal defect, hypertelorism, a long and smooth philtrum, thin vermilion borders, and micrognathia, all common features of microdeletion 1q44...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary valve infective endocarditis is a rare finding for endocarditis. Infective endocarditis caused by Gemella morbillorum remains a scanty occurrence. CASE PRESENTATION: This is a case reported of a 28-year-old Chinese male with endocarditis caused by pulmonary valve infection of Gemella morbillorum associated with congenital ventricular septal defect, atrial septal defect and double-chambered right ventricle. The patient presented with fever, shortness of breath, progressively worsening exertional fatigue, dyspnea and weight loss for 3 months...

Importance: Nasal reconstruction after Mohs surgery is a unique challenge in that it must satisfy both functional and aesthetic goals. Despite some advocacy in the literature for using structural reinforcement to achieve both functional and aesthetic outcomes in soft-tissue reconstruction, no study has validated this claim by comparing reconstruction with and without structural support. Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of and need for structural reinforcement when reconstructing the nasal alar and sidewall subunits...

Marfan syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder affecting mainly the skeletal, ocular and cardiovascular systems. Most cases are caused by mutations in the fibrillin-1 gene (FBN1), although there are some reports on deletions involving FBN1 and other additional genes. We report a male patient who was first evaluated at 4 years of age. Echocardiogram showed a mildly dilated aortic sinus. He also had a history of muscular ventral septal defect which was closed spontaneously and trivial mitral regurgitation...

PURPOSE: Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (CC-TGA) is a complex form of congenital heart defect with numerous anatomic subgroups. The majority of patients with CC-TGA are excellent candidates for a double-switch procedure. However, in the absence of an unrestrictive ventricular septal defect or subpulmonary stenosis, the left ventricle (LV) may undergo involution and require retraining prior to double switch. The purpose of this study was to review our experience with patients having CC-TGA who required LV retraining prior to a double-switch procedure...

BACKGROUND: This study examined the degree of hemolysis during vacuum-assisted venous drainage at different negative pressures to identify an adequate negative pressure that provides effective venous drainage without significant hemolysis in open-heart surgery in children weighing less than 10 kg. METHODS: Patients weighing less than 10 kg who underwent surgery for ventricular septal defect or atrial septal defect from 2011 to 2014 were enrolled. We used one of four negative pressures (20, 30, 40, or 60 mm Hg) for each patient...

To avoid aortic cross-clamping and cardioplegic ischaemia, we propose the induction of hyperkalemic arrest and using aortic no-touch technique in minimally invasive atrial septal defect (ASD) closure. Twenty-eight patients were included in this study. After establishment of cardiopulmonary bypass, potassium was administered to induce hyperkalemic arrest. The mean dose of injected potassium was 1.2 ± 0.45 mEq/kg. Following the direct closure of the ASD, potassium was filtered out using a hemodialyzer. At the end of the operation, serum potassium was normalized to 4...

OBJECTIVES: In order to facilitate surgical repair of complex aortic cusp deformities and restoration of aortic valve competence, new moulds were developed to shape the glutaraldehyde-treated autologous pericardium into precise cusp-like configurations that can be used in aortic cusp reconstruction. METHODS: The new moulds embodied the natural geometry of single aortic cusps, and a series of moulds were made available to correspond with all potential aortic cusp sizes...

OBJECTIVES: We sought to determine differences in baseline characteristics and clinical outcomes in a consecutive series of patients undergoing arterial switch operation (ASO), assessing the effect of coronary anatomy on postoperative mortality, both overall and adjusted for surgical era. METHODS: From January 2000 to May 2015, 283 consecutive patients underwent ASO for transposition of the great arteries. A total of 103 patients (36.4%) had an associated ventricular septal defect and 23 (8...

OBJECTIVES: This article reports the safety and efficacy of a morphology-based algorithm for the surgical management of pulmonary atresia and ventricular septal defect with major aortopulmonary collateral arteries. METHODS: A total of 83 patients were operated from 2007 to 2014 using 3 surgical approaches: one-stage total repair, one-stage unifocalization with central shunt and delayed total repair and multistage unifocalization with subsequent total repair. Patients were divided into 2 groups depending on the surgical strategy used to choose the surgical approach...

We sought to determine the natural history of aortic valve disease in patients with unrepaired perimembranous ventricular septal defects (pVSDs) and to identify echocardiographic parameters predictive of increased risk of surgical repair of pVSD because of aortic valve disease. We retrospectively analyzed all echocardiograms of patients with a diagnosis of pVSD at our institution from January 1999 to January 2015. All available echocardiographic data were collected. Patients were excluded if there was another structural cardiac anomaly other than bicuspid aortic valve, small patent foramen ovale, or ductus arteriosus...
