BACKGROUND: The Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) is dedicated to supporting patients with congenital heart disease. To guide patients to qualified providers and programs, it maintains a publicly accessible directory of dedicated adult congenital cardiac programs. We analyzed the directory in 2006 and 2015, aiming to evaluate the growth of the directory as a whole and to evaluate the growth of individual programs within the directory. We also hope this raises awareness of the growing opportunities that exist in adult congenital cardiology and cardiac surgery...

REVIEW
Brian Kogon, Joshua Rosenblum, Bahaaldin Alsoufi, Subhadra Shashidharan, Wendy Book
The Emory Adult Congenital Heart (Emory University, Atlanta, GA) program was founded in 2001. In 2004, the surgical component transitioned from a pediatric facility to an adult facility. The aim of this article is characterize the program as a whole, outline changes in the program, and discuss the challenges of the transition process. Between 2001 and 2015, changes in program structure and personnel were evaluated. There has been significant growth of the program between 2001 and 2015. There are currently 19 half-day clinics per week, with 2,700 clinic visits per year...

BACKGROUND: Patients with total anomalous pulmonary venous connection can be problematic, particularly those with mixed-type pathology. We aimed to describe a cohort of patients with mixed-type anomalous drainage, highlighting the treatment challenges, and identifying risk factors for poor outcome. METHODS: We reviewed the clinical records of patients who underwent repair for mixed-type total anomalous pulmonary venous connection between 1986 and 2015. RESULTS: A total of 19 patients were identified...

BACKGROUND: The two most common surgical strategies for the treatment of neonates born with single-ventricle anomalies associated with aortic arch obstruction are the Norwood operation and pulmonary artery banding plus coarctation repair (PAB+COA). We reviewed characteristics and outcomes of neonates who underwent those two surgical strategies at our institution. METHODS: Between 2002 and 2012, 94 neonates with a single ventricle and aortic arch obstruction (excluding hypoplastic left heart syndrome) underwent Norwood (n = 65) or PAB+COA (n = 29)...

Significant noncardiac and genetic abnormalities (NC and GA) are common in neonates with congenital heart defects. We sought to examine current-era effect of those abnormalities on early and late outcomes following cardiac surgery. The method from 2002-2012, 1538 neonates underwent repair (n = 860, 56%) or palliation (n = 678, 44%) of congenital heart defects. Regression models examined the effect of NC and GA on operative results, resource utilization, and late outcomes. Neonates with NC and GA (n = 312, 20%) had higher incidence of prematurity (21% vs 13%; P < 0...

BACKGROUND: Management of a patent systemic-pulmonary (SP) shunt and the resulting runoff during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) varies among institutions. We have used a strategy of increased flow without surgical reduction of the shunt diameter, and here report our results with this strategy. METHODS: In this database review of 169 successive veno-arterial ECMO runs performed between 2002 and 2013 in infants and neonates, ECMO flow, time to achieve lactate clearance, normal pH, and negative fluid balance were compared in patients with shunts and those without shunts...

BACKGROUND: Differences in right ventricle and tricuspid valve structure compared with left ventricle and mitral valve structure make them less equipped to support the systemic circulation long term, with subsequent systemic right ventricle failure. We examined the effect of dominant ventricle morphology on single ventricle palliation outcomes. METHODS: We grouped 530 neonates who underwent first-stage palliation into two groups based on dominant ventricle morphology: right dominant ventricle (RV group; n = 302, 57%) and left dominant ventricle or functional single ventricle with two well-formed ventricles (LV group; n = 228, 43%)...

BACKGROUND: Aortopulmonary window (APW) is a rare congenital defect that is often associated with other cardiac lesions. We analyzed our operative strategy to determine whether this had any relationship with outcomes. METHODS: Early and late outcomes of 40 children who underwent APW repair at our institution during a 20-year period (1994 to 2013) were analyzed. RESULTS: Median age at time of the operation was 22 days (interquartile range, 9 to 63 days), and median weight was 3...

OBJECTIVE: After neonatal cardiac surgery, a number of patients need a prolonged stay in the intensive care unit (ICU). Those patients require tremendous resources and strain the capacity of cardiac units. To date, little knowledge of early and late survival for this challenging population exists. METHODS: From 2002 to 2012, 108 neonates required a postoperative ICU stay >30 days. Multivariable regression analyses examined factors associated with hospital death and late survival...

UNLABELLED: Children with congenital heart diseases have increased morbidity and mortality, despite various surgical treatments, therefore warranting better treatment strategies. Here we investigate the role of age of human pediatric cardiac progenitor cells (hCPCs) on ventricular remodeling in a model of juvenile heart failure. hCPCs isolated from children undergoing reconstructive surgeries were divided into 3 groups based on age: neonate (1 day to 1 month), infant (1 month to 1 year), and child (1 to 5 years)...

BACKGROUND: Management of infants with heterotaxy syndrome and functional single ventricle is complicated due to associated cardiac and extracardiac anomalies. We report current era palliation results. METHODS: Between 2002 and 2012, 67 infants with heterotaxy syndrome underwent multistage palliation. Competing risks analyses modeled events after surgery (death vs Glenn procedure) and examined factors associated with survival. In addition, early and late outcomes following first-stage palliation surgery were compared with a matched contemporaneous control group of patients with nonheterotaxy single ventricle anomalies...

OBJECTIVES: Paediatric heart transplantation is performed to salvage children with end-stage heart failure from various underlying pathologies. Despite several developments in all management aspects of transplantation candidates, the effect of those advances on outcomes has not been consistent. We report our institutional experience with focus on examining era effect on early and late survival. METHODS: Between 1988 and 2015, 320 children underwent heart transplantation...

OBJECTIVES: The modified Blalock-Taussig shunt (BTS) is utilized to palliate neonates born with restrictive pulmonary blood flow including those with single ventricle (SV) or biventricular (BV) cardiac anomalies. We aim in the current study to report palliation outcomes of neonates with BTS and to examine factors affecting death and progression to the subsequent stage of palliation or repair. METHODS: Between 2002 and 2012, 341 patients underwent BTS including 175 with SV and 166 with BV anomalies...

BACKGROUND: Following the Norwood operation, unfavorable hemodynamic or anatomic factors might disqualify children from progressing through subsequent palliative surgeries necessitating listing for heart transplantation. Those patients often have immune, clinical, or anatomic risk factors that could preclude donor allocation, increase operative risk, and diminish late survival. We studied transplantation outcomes in those patients using the Pediatric Heart Transplant Study database. METHODS: A total of 253 children who had prior Norwood were listed for transplantation (1993-2012)...

BACKGROUND: Left ventricular outflow tract obstruction (LVOTO) is an important problem after interrupted aortic arch (IAA) repair, especially when early reoperation is required during infancy. Several anatomic factors have been identified that increase LVOTO risk; surgical strategies such as concomitant resection of the conal septum or left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) bypass (single-stage Yasui operation, or staged Norwood procedure, followed by the Rastelli procedure) have been proposed for such patients...
