Upon detection of foreign-body embolization to the central nervous system (CNS) following a specific invasive cardiovascular procedure in 1 autopsied child, we undertook a quality assurance analysis to determine whether other patients had had similar events. Autopsies of all infants and children with history of cardiac catheterization, heart surgery on cardiopulmonary bypass, and/or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation over a 5-year period at a single tertiary care institution were reviewed for light-microscopic evidence of foreign material...

Early diagnosis of congenital glaucoma allows surgery to be performed at the stage of reversible glaucomatous alterations of the optic disc and retina. In primary congenital glaucoma, the main reason for visual acuity reduction following surgical stabilization of the intraocular pressure are corneal changes. These include an increased corneal diameter, Haab's striae, areas of thickening and a greater posterior elevation. The resultant irregular astigmatism leads to amblyopia and a marked decrease in visual acuity...

The risk of intersex-related stigma often serves as social indication for "corrective" genital surgery, but has not been comprehensively documented. In preparation for the development of an intersex-specific stigma assessment tool, this qualitative project aimed to explore stigma in girls and women with classical congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) due to 21-hydroxylase deficiency. As part of a comprehensive follow-up project, 62 adult women with classical CAH (age range 18-51 years) took part in an open-ended retrospective interview focusing on the impact of CAH and its treatment on various aspects of girls' and women's lives...

Craniomaxillofacial reconstructive surgery is a challenging field. First it aims to restore primary functions and second to preserve craniofacial anatomical features like symmetry and harmony. Three-dimensional (3D) printed biomodels have been widely adopted in medical fields by providing tactile feedback and a superior appreciation of visuospatial relationship between anatomical structures. Craniomaxillofacial reconstructive surgery was one of the first areas to implement 3D printing technology in their practice...

BACKGROUND: Adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD) undergoing systemic atrioventricular valve (SAVV) surgery are a complex, understudied population. We assessed midterm outcomes and prognostic factors in ACHD undergoing SAVV surgery. METHODS: We performed retrospective evaluation of ACHD undergoing SAVV surgery from January 2005 to February 2016: 14 (33%) patients with congenital mitral valve stenosis/regurgitation, 15 (35%) with atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD), and 14 (33%) with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) with systemic tricuspid valve regurgitation...

We report a clinical case of a 40-year-old male with surgically corrected congenital heart disease (CHD) 10 years earlier: closure of ostium primum, mitral annuloplasty, and aortic valve and root surgery. The patient was admitted with acute heart failure. Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) revealed a dysmorphic and severely incompetent aortic valve, a partial tear of the mitral valve cleft repair and annuloplasty ring dehiscence. A true left ventricular-to-right atrial shunt confirmed a direct Gerbode defect...

Open spina bifida or myelomeningocele (MMC) is one of the most common serious congenital malformations. Historically, this condition has been treated with closure of the MMC defect shortly after birth. The goal of postnatal closure is to cover the exposed spinal cord and prevent infection. However, postnatal surgery does not reverse or prevent the neurologic injury seen in MMC, reverse hindbrain herniation, or prevent hydrocephalus. The neurologic defects result from primary incomplete neurulation and secondary chronic prenatal damage to the exposed neural elements through mechanical and chemical trauma...

AIM: To demonstrate the feasibility of blood conservation methods and practice across all ages and risk categories in congenital cardiac surgery. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed a collected database of 356 patients who underwent cardiac surgery using cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) from 2010-2015. The patients were grouped into blood conservation (n = 138) and non-conservation (n = 218) groups and sub-grouped based on their ages and procedural complexity scores...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is the most common and most serious complication following heart surgery. We aimed to determine the prevalence of, and risk factors for, AKI following pediatric cardiac surgery.Methods and Results:We retrospectively analyzed 135 patients aged ≤18 years who underwent cardiac surgery for congenital heart defects; by RACHS-1 category, 58 patients (43%) had an operative risk score ≥3. AKI was defined and classified using the pediatric pRIFLE criteria (Pediatric Risk, Injury, Failure, Loss, and End-stage Kidney Disease); 19 patients (14...

Congenital Bochdalek hernia is a defect of the diaphragm and very rare in adults. Only around 100 cases have been reported in the literature. Herein, we present a case with a recurrent ovarian cancer who underwent secondary cytoreductive surgery and hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy. An oval defect with dimensions of 3 × 4 cm was seen in the left posterolateral site of the diaphragm during surgical exploration. In addition, a 6 × 3 cm iatrogenic right-sided diaphragmatic defect was found and repaired...

OBJECTIVE: To determine if a non-invasive, repeatable test can be used to predict neurodevelopmental outcomes in patients with congenital heart disease. METHODS: This was a prospective study of pediatric patients less than two months of age undergoing congenital heart surgery at the Children's Health Children's Medical Center at Dallas. Multichannel near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) was utilized during the surgery, and ultrasound (US) resistive indices (RI) of the major cranial vessels were obtained prior to surgery, immediately post-operatively, and prior to discharge...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the clinical outcomes of single-stage surgery for treatment of patients with congenital ptosis and coexisting strabismus. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed on 10 patients (17 eyes) with congenital ptosis and coexisting strabismus. Patients were treated with levator resection or frontalis suspension for ptosis and ocular muscle surgery for strabismus, performed as a single-stage procedure. Levator resection was performed in 9 patients (15 eyes) and frontalis muscle flap suspension was performed in 1 patient (2 eyes) with blepharophimosis...

Epiphora is a common clinical symptom of nasolacrimal duct obstruction. However, it is present in several pathologies and can lead to decreased quality of life for patients. A careful clinical examination including a detailed patient's history and diagnostic tests such as the fluorescein dye disappearance test and diagnostic syringing of the lacrimal duct are essential. Depending on the time of presentation (congenital, primary or secondary acquired), grade (subtotal or total) and location of the stenosis, different surgical approaches can be considered...

OBJECTIVES: Results of surgery for focal CHI in 30 children PATIENTS AND METHODS: All showed an ABCC8 or KCNJ11 mutation. After PET/CT in 29 children and PET/MRT in 1 case, frozen-section guided resection was performed, in left-sided cases by laparoscopy. Mean age at surgery was 11.7 months (2-49). RESULTS: In 28/30 children, the PET/CT or MRT correlated with histopathology. In two cases, a focal lesion was undectable; one of these was cured, one not. In total, 24 children showed lesions with sizes of 5-12 mm...

PURPOSE: There are two theories about the origin of os odontoideum: traumatic or congenital. However, most studies favor the hypothesis of traumatic theory. To emphasize the congenital theory, we report a pair of identical twins both with atlantoaxial dislocation and os odontoideum, which is believed to be a congenital defect. METHODS: We present two 14-year-old identical twins with atlantoaxial dislocation and os odontoideum. Neither of the twins had history of trauma in head nor cervical spine...

The purpose of this paper is to highlight the risk of early malignant transformation in infants with giant congenital melanocytic nevi (GN) and demonstrate the potential for earlier intervention with aggressive surgery. We describe the case of a child born with a GN who developed a metastatic melanoma early in life, despite early commencement of resection of the nevus. This is contrasted against a second case of a child in which a more radical management was conducted. Despite early commencement of serial resection of the GN, the first child in this series died of metastatic melanoma prior to complete excision of the nevus...
