There is no generally accepted consensus on the management of patent foramen ovale (PFO) in the presence of cryptogenic cerebral ischemia, because of the lack of conclusive evidence. The aim of this position paper was to develop and promote a joint approach based on available data that may be shared by different specialists, while waiting for definite results from randomized controlled trials. A position statement was produced involving the major national scientific societies. The task force members were nominated by the presidents and/or executive boards of each society or working group, as appropriate, based on their previous work in relevant topic areas...

This article combines material from three complementary overviews presented in the Symposium on Pulmonary Venous Anomalies during the Joint Meeting of the World Society for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery and Sociedad Latina de Cardiologia y Cirugia Cardiovascular Pediátrica in Lima, Peru. We discuss the embryologic basis for nomenclature, the hierarchical diagnostic categories, and the important anatomic and morphologic characteristics of anomalous pulmonary venous connections. The anatomic descriptions help to guide an understandable and sensible approach to the diagnosis and surgical management of these various disorders...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: To analyze the clinical status of patients with "uncorrected" scimitar syndrome in a multicenter Italian study. METHODS: The natural history of scimitar syndrome was analyzed in 44 affected individuals (from 9 Italian centers). RESULTS: The median age at diagnosis was 1.05 years (range, 1 day - 41 years). Thirty-three patients (75%) had an isolated form; 11 patients (25%) had associated congenital heart diseases...

This article sets out the recommendations for the prevention of infective endocarditis (IE), contained in the guidelines developed by the American Heart Association (AHA) and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), from which the recommendations of the Spanish Society of Paediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Disease have been agreed. In recent years, there has been a considerable change in the recommendations for the prevention of IE, mainly due to the lack of evidence on the effectiveness of antibiotic prophylaxis in prevention, and the risk of the development of antibiotic resistance...

INTRODUCTION: No Spanish guidelines for the prevention of surgical wound infection in paediatric cardiac surgery are currently available. The aim of this study was to analyse the nationwide variability in antibiotic prophylaxis use. MATERIAL AND METHODS: An online questionnaire was distributed to all members of the Cardiology Group of the Spanish Society of Paediatric Intensive Care. Fifteen centres participated in the study. RESULTS: In heart surgery with no delayed sternal closure, all 15 centres used a 1st or 2nd generation cephalosporin in paediatric patients, while 3 hospitals used a broader-spectrum antibiotic therapy in neonates...

BACKGROUND: Following the results of the CIVIC study, the SECPCC proposes to revise its recommendations for the prevention of RSV, taking into account the new evidence, as well as the preventive experience of paediatric cardiologists. For this purpose a structured method of professional consensus has been chosen. OBJECTIVES: To develop a Spanish clinical consensus on preventing infection by RSV under the auspices of the Sociedad Española de Cardiología Pediátrica y Cardiopatías Congénitas...

INTRODUCTION: We compare hospitalisation rates for acute respiratory tract infection in children younger than 24 months with significant congenital heart disease without Down's syndrome with those with Down's syndrome with or without congenital heart disease. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This was an epidemiological, multicentre (53 Spanish hospitals), observational and prospective study, from October 2006 to April 2007. A total of 1085 patients were followed-up, of which 806 did not have Down's syndrome and 279 with Down's syndrome: 135 with significant, 38 with non significant and 105 without congenital heart disease...

Natriuretic peptide hormones are a family of vasoactive peptides with many favorable physiological properties and have emerged as useful markers in cardiovascular disease. In particular, brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is a cardiac neurohormone secreted by the cardiac ventricles as a response to ventricular volume expansion, pressure overload and resultant increased wall tension, directly correlated with both left ventricular filling and pulmonary wedge pressure. It is nowadays considered an important diagnostic tool, adding information to clinical judgment in the evaluation of patients with acute dyspnea, and a useful guide to the treatment of chronic heart failure...

BACKGROUND: Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) is a rare syndrome with a severe prognosis, in which a prompt diagnosis can be life-saving. The aim of our study was to verify its prevalence in a neonatal population, define clinical and echocardiographic criteria for the diagnosis of PPHN and discuss therapeutic choices. METHODS: The following clinical and echocardiographic criteria for the diagnosis of PPHN were defined: 1. cyanosis and hypoxemia non-responsive to O2 therapy; 2...
