BACKGROUND: This study sought to evaluate the feasibility, safety, and efficacy of perventricular device closure of a doubly committed sub-arterial ventricular septal defect (dcVSD) through a left infra-axillary approach. METHOD: Forty-five patients, with a dcVSD of less than 8 mm in diameter, were enrolled in this study. The pericardium was exposed and opened through a left infra-axillary mini-incision. Two parallel purse-string sutures were placed on the right ventricle outflow tract and under transesophageal echocardiography guidance, a delivery sheath loaded with the device was inserted into the right ventricle and advanced through the defect into the left ventricle...

Localized ventricular septal hypertrophy, also known as idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis or idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic septal obstruction (IHSS), can create severe ventricular outflow obstruction. This often results in a high sub-aortic pressure gradient with potentially lethal symptoms. In 1960, Braunwald described the hemodynamic characteristics of IHSS, and thereafter, Morrow developed a trans-aortic approach to resect a large part of the ventricular septum, enlarging the outflow tract. The Morrow operation has remained the gold standard for surgically treating this pathology...

Hypoplastic right heart syndrome is a rare cyanotic congenital heart disease with under-development of the right ventricle, tricuspid, and pulmonary valves leading to right-to-left shunting of the blood through inter-atrial septal defect. Perinatal mortality is high with very few patients surviving to adulthood without corrective surgery. This report describes a 26-year-old young woman, who had recurrent abortions and stillbirths and detected to have marked cyanosis with hypoplastic right heart, sub-arterial ventricular septal defect, absent pulmonary valve, non-compaction of the left ventricle, and bicuspid aortic valve with aortic regurgitation...

BACKGROUND: Prevalence of Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is well established in most of the developed countries, where childbirth is obligatory in hospitals and allied facilities. In rural Pakistan the situation is reverse, where most of deliveries take place in homes by traditional birth attendants' therefore true prevalence of CHD in our population is unknown. In rural Pakistan almost 80% children are born at home hence the figures are unknown. This study was designed, to determine the prevalence of congenital heart disease in rural Pakistan...

Transcatheter closure of perimembranous and muscular ventricular septal defect (VSD) has been performed widely and it has more advantages compare to surgery. However, transcatheter closure of residual VSD post operation of complex congenital heart disease is still challenging because of the complexity of anatomy and concern about device stability, so the operator should meticulously choose the most appropriate technique and device. We would like to report a case of transcatheter closure of residual VSD post Rastelli operation in a patient with double outlet right ventricle (DORV), sub-aortic VSD, severe infundibulum pulmonary stenosis (PS) and single coronary artery...

PURPOSE: A recent study analyzing several cytokines reported that long cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) time and long aortic cross clamp (ACC) time were accompanied by enhanced postoperative inflammation, which contrasted with the modest influence of the degree of hypothermia. In this present study, we aimed to examine the effect of CPB temperature on the clinical outcome in infants undergoing repair of isolated ventricular septal defect (VSD). METHODS: Of the 212 infants with isolated VSD who underwent open heart surgery (OHS) between January 2001 and December 2010, 43 infants were enrolled...

Until now, few cases of partial trisomy of 3q due to segregation error of parental balanced translocation and segregation of a duplicated deficient product resulting from parental pericentric inversion have been reported so far. Only five cases of chromosomal insertion malsegregation involving 3q region are available yet, thus making it relatively rare. In this case report, we are presenting a unique case of discontinuous partial trisomy of 3q26.1-q28 region which resulted from a segregation error of two insertions involving 3q26...

Rupture of a sinus of Valsalva aneurysm is an uncommon lesion that can occur in any cardiac chamber since the aortic valve occupies a central position in the base of the heart. However, rupture into the pulmonary artery is extremely rare. We describe a case of rupture of an aneurysm of right sinus of Valsalva into the pulmonary artery of a 51-year-old woman. She had been treated by patch closure of a sub-pulmonary ventricular septal defect and aortic valve replacement due to right coronary cusp prolapse 26 years previously...

We report two rare cases of an anomalous origin of the left pulmonary artery (AOLPA) from the ascending aorta, associated with pulmonary atresia, a ventricular septal defect and a left aortic arch. The cases are unusual because AOLPA is more commonly associated with a right aortic arch and it is more usual for the right pulmonary artery to originate anomalously from the ascending aorta. The pulmonary blood supply to the right lung in both patients was absent and provided instead by major aorto-pulmonary collateral arteries which were stenosed at multiple levels...

UNLABELLED: Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) remains a major public health problem in developing countries. Whereas Africa has 10% of the world's population, broadly as many as half of the 2.4 million children affected by RHD live on the continent. We report on the occurrence and pattern of valve involvement in RHD using echocardiography in our centre and post surgical follow-up. METHODS: In this retrospective study, transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) data collected from the Shisong cardiac centre over a period of 24 months (August 2005 to August 2007) were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Cardiac troponin-I (cTnI) is one of the three regulatory subunits of the cardiac troponin which has the high sensibility and specificity of responding to myocardial injury. Studies have demonstrated that cTnI is released into the blood stream within hours following acute myocardial reperfusion injury. The clinical utility of cTnI for the assessment of myocardial damage is that it is more specific than creatine kinase MB (CKMB). This study investigated cTnI as a sensitive marker of myocardial reperfusion injury and its clinical value on beating heart surgery with right sub-axiliary incision...

OBJECTIVE: The arterial-switch operation (ASO) for management of Taussig-Bing anomaly is associated with important morbidity, mainly related to multiple associated cardiac anomalies. Our surgical management has evolved to suggest a single-stage total repair strategy tailored to address all abnormalities on an individual basis. We examine the efficacy of this treatment approach. METHODS: Thirty-three children, (infants n=29), with Taussig-Bing underwent ASO (1979-2005)...
