OBJECTIVES: Tricuspid valve (TV) competence is important for successful palliation of hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS). We report our experience with TV repair in HLHS patients with a focus on TV and right ventricular (RV) function and associated clinical outcomes. METHODS: From 2002 to 2012, 219 neonates with HLHS underwent the Norwood operation. Thirty patients who underwent TV repair at various stages comprised our current series cohort. Echocardiographic and clinical data were reviewed to determine the effectiveness of TV repair and outcomes of the patients...

BACKGROUND: We aim to examine the effect of genetic syndromes and extracardiac anomalies (GS/EC) on single ventricle (SV) palliation with focus on hospital death, interstage mortality, and progression towards subsequent palliation stages. METHODS: 530 neonates with SV underwent first-stage palliation: Norwood (n=284,53%), shunt (n=173,33%), band (n=73,14%). Outcomes were compared between those with GS/EC (n=121,23%) and without GS/EC (n=409,77%). Regression analyses were adjusted for other risk factors (age, gender, prematurity, weight, SV anomaly, first-stage palliation surgery)...

BACKGROUND: We examined the association of pre-operative cell count abnormalities, which have been shown to be associated with outcomes in adult cardiac patients, with morbidity and mortality following surgery for congenital heart disease (CHD) in children. METHODS: We performed a retrospective cohort study on 4865 children undergoing cardiac surgery from 2004- 2014. Our exposures of interest were presence of pre-operative lymphopenia (lymphocyte count ≤ 3000 cells/μL), thrombocytopenia (platelet count < 150 x103 / μL), and neutrophilia (neutrophil count ≥ 7000 cells/ μL)...

The Damus-Kaye-Stansel (DKS) anastomosis was originally described for the treatment of transposition of the great arteries but it is now used mainly for the treatment of single ventricle anomalies in patients who are at risk of developing systemic ventricular outflow tract obstruction (SVOTO). In most instances, DKS is performed as a concomitant procedure at time of bidirectional cavopulmonary connection in these patients. This tutorial we demonstrate our modified double-barrel approach, along with anterior patch augmentation of the distal ascending aorta...

Aortic arch hypoplasia is commonly present in neonates born with ductal-dependent coarctation of the aorta. The ideal surgical repair of neonates with proximal arch hypoplasia continues to be debated. Controversy exists about the fate of the hypoplastic proximal aortic arch following surgical repair and whether that will eventually grow to normal size upon relief of the distal obstruction or will persist as a residual lesion that can affect the long-term outlook of those patients. There is new evidence that residual proximal arch hypoplasia and the shape of the reconstructed arch both have an important impact on vascular remodeling and on the subsequent development of hypertension...

This research work demonstrates compositional engineering of an organic-inorganic hybrid nano-composites for modifying absolute threshold of humidity sensors. Vanadyl-2,9,16,23-tetraphenoxy-29H,31H-phthalocyanine (VOPcPhO), an organic semiconductor, doped with Titanium-dioxide nanoparticles (TiO2 NPs) has been employed to fabricate humidity sensors. The morphology of the VOPcPhO:TiO2 nano-composite films has been analyzed by atomic force microscopy (AFM) and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM)...

BACKGROUND: Double inlet left ventricle (DILV) is a heterogeneous single ventricle anomaly in which initial presentation, and consequently, timing and palliation mode vary based on morphology and degree of pulmonary or systemic outflow obstruction. Very few reports, mostly old, focused on palliation outcomes of DILV. We report current-era results and examine whether morphologic and subsequently surgical factors influence survival. METHODS: Fifty-eight infants with DILV underwent single ventricle palliation...

BACKGROUND: We aim to describe the impact of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS) on clinical characteristics, postoperative course, and early and late outcomes of neonates undergoing surgery for conotruncal anomalies. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed (2002 to 2012) of 224 neonates who underwent surgery for interrupted aortic arch (n = 67), truncus arteriosus (n = 85), or ductal-dependent pulmonary atresia and ventricular septal defect (n = 72). Patients were divided into three groups: group 1, n = 119, no genetic syndrome; group 2, n = 64, 22q11DS; and group 3, n = 41, other genetic syndrome...

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...

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)...
