Introduction: Complete heart block (CHB) is considered as one of the dangerous rhythms since it can progress to lethal arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia. It can be congenital or acquired. Patients may present with frequent palpitations, presyncope, dyspnea, or chest pain but also may remain asymptomatic. Extensive work-up should be conducted to exclude secondary causes such as infections, cardiac ischemia or myopathies, autoimmune diseases, or endocrinological diseases. In our paper, we would like to present a case of CHB in the setting of aortic abdominal thrombus that nearly occluded both renal arteries...

INTRODUCTION: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a disease observed in extremely premature infants characterised by visioning-threatening retinal vessel proliferation. Propranolol, a drug used for decades in newborn infants with heart diseases, hypertension and thyrotoxicosis and licenced for infantile haemangiomas, may be effective in halting progression of ROP to severe stages, as suggested by preliminary data from small studies. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: ROPROP is an investigator-initiated, multicentre, placebo-controlled double-blind, randomised controlled trial aiming to assess the safety and efficacy of orally administered propranolol to reduce the risk of threshold ROP (stage 3) in extremely preterm infants at 48 weeks postmenstrual age (primary objective) and the rate of infants requiring local interventions for severe ROP (secondary objective)...

RATIONALE: Ventricular septal defects are the most common congenital heart defect in children. As this method avoids sternotomy, the post-procedural morbidity is lower. However, transcatheter closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects are still associated with complications such as arrhythmia (particularly, Atrioventricular Block), device embolization, atrioventricularvalve and/or aortic valves regurgitation, residual shunts. Some complications can be life threatening and require urgent surgical intervention...

In this retrospective, observational study of fetuses diagnosed with a laterality disturbance we describe the findings and outcome of fetuses diagnosed between 1980 and 2017 at a tertiary fetal-pediatric cardiology unit. In addition we sought to identify features which impact on outcome. Left atrial isomerism (LAI) was diagnosed in 177 babies and right atrial isomerism (RAI) in 100. Major structural heart disease was present in all cases of RAI and 91% with LAI. Complete heart block (CHB) was present in 40% of LAI...

Atrioventricular Septal Defect (AVSD) is a rare congenital heart defect (CHD) often associated with genetic syndromes, most commonly Down syndrome (DS). Over the last four decades, surgical repair has increased survival and improved quality of life in these patients. The prevalence of bradyarrhythmias namely, atrioventricular block (AVB) and sinus node dysfunction (SND) in AVSD is partially known. 522 cases with both partial and complete AVSD (38.7% with DS), undergoing intracardiac repair from 1982 to 2016 at our institution, were reviewed from our system database...

We report a term female infant with congenital heart block and total anomalous of pulmonary venous return. The results of single nucleotide polymorphism oligonucleotide microarray analysis showed an interstitial duplication of approximately 818 Kb, which involved 11 genes, including the entire LAMB3 gene which is known to associate with cardiac conduction defect. Our report adds to the collective knowledge that the cardiac conduction defect is a clinical feature of chromosome 1q32.2 duplication.

Systemic-to-pulmonary artery collateral networks commonly develop in patients with single-ventricle physiology and chronic hypoxemia. Although these networks augment pulmonary blood flow, much of the flow is ineffective and contributes to cardiac volume loading. This volume loading can have detrimental effects, especially for single-ventricle patients. Some data suggest that occluding collaterals may improve outcomes after subsequent operations, especially when the volume of collateral flow is significant. Traditional practice has been to coil occlude the feeding vessel...

OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to assess the utility of 3D printed heart models of congenital heart disease for preoperative surgical simulation. METHODS: Twenty patient-specific 3D models were created between March 2015 and August 2017. All operations were performed by a young consultant surgeon who had no prior experience with complex biventricular repair. All 15 patients with balanced ventricles had outflow tract malformations (double-outlet right ventricle in 7 patients, congenitally corrected transposition of great arteries in 5, transposition of great arteries in 1, interrupted aortic arch Type B in 1, tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries in 1)...

Lutembacher syndrome is characterized by a congenital ostium secundum atrial septal defect and an acquired mitral valve stenosis. We present a similar case in a 31-year old male who came in with orthopnoea, central cyanosis and pedal oedema. Examination revealed cardiac murmurs in tricuspid and apical regions. Chest x-ray showed signs of pulmonary congestion and ventricular enlargement. Electrocardiogaphy (ECG) revealed right axis deviation and right bundle branch block along with atrial fibrillation and Transthoracic Echocardiography (TTE) showed abnormal valves (mitral stenosis with calcification and tricuspid regurgitation) and dilated cardiac chambers...

Chenni S Sriram, Mario D Gonzalez
We describe a neonate that developed alternating wide and narrow complex tachycardias following heart surgery for congenital heart defect. Although the etiology was sinus tachycardia, a premature atrial complex initiated aberrancy due to phase 3 block that was perpetuated due to 'linking' at similar or even slower heart rates. Similarly, there was abrupt transition from wide to narrow complex tachycardia following a premature ventricular complex without a change in subsequent heart rate. This was explained by interruption of linking phenomenon by premature ventricular activation...

OBJECTIVES: Postoperative arrhythmias are common in children undergoing congenital heart surgery. We evaluated whether intraoperative administration of magnesium was associated with a reduced occurrence of specific postoperative arrhythmias, as has been described previously, or had a broader effect on multiple arrhythmia types, and whether there existed a dose-effect of intraoperative magnesium. METHODS: We used a historical prospective observational cohort study...

Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries is a rare heart defect that can be associated with systemic ventricular dysfunction and conduction disturbances. The use of cardiac resynchronization therapy in patients with congenital heart disease is not fully established, and achievement of successful pregnancies after implantation of transvenous, biventricular system has never been described, and which resulted in a significant clinical improvement. We describe a 33-year-old female with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries, who achieved six pregnancies and successful vaginal deliveries...
