BACKGROUND: Data routinely captured in clinical registries may be leveraged to enhance efficiency of prospective research. The quality of registry data for this purpose has not been studied, however. We evaluated the completeness and accuracy of perioperative data within congenital heart centers' local surgical registries. METHODS: Within 12 Pediatric Heart Network (PHN) sites, we evaluated 31 perioperative variables (and their subcategories, totaling 113 unique fields) collected via sites' local clinical registries for submission to The Society of Thoracic Surgeons Database, compared with chart review by PHN research coordinators...

BACKGROUND: Intrapericardial teratoma is a rare, lethal tumor often detected in fetal life. Tumor mass and pericardial effusion cause cardiac tamponade, which if relieved, could be life-saving. Optimal timing of intervention and methods for effective fetal treatment are unknown. OBJECTIVES: We describe our single center experience with fetal intrapericardial teratoma including the first report of successful in utero surgical resection with survival to term. METHODS: We reviewed our database for suspected fetal intrapericardial teratoma...

The surgical time out is an integral component of patient safety in OR settings. At The Center for Outpatient Surgery (TCOPS), a team of nurses and plastic and breast surgeons evaluated discrepancies, wrong-site surgeries, near misses, team communication, and patient satisfaction to develop and implement a surgical checklist that would help improve efficiency and patient safety and reduce near misses. This checklist involves the surgical team and patient, and it includes preoperative, preincision, and postoperative time outs...

OBJECTIVES: Despite improved survival in children with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), significant concern persists regarding their neurodevelopmental (ND) outcomes. Previous studies have identified patient factors, such as prematurity and genetic syndromes, to be associated with worse ND outcomes. However, no consistent relationships have been identified among modifiable management factors, including cardiopulmonary bypass strategies, and ND outcomes after cardiac surgery in infancy...

The time interval for the doubling of medical knowledge continues to decline. Physicians, patients, administrators, government officials, and payors are struggling to keep up to date with the waves of new information and to integrate the knowledge into new patient treatment protocols, processes, and metrics. Guidelines, Consensus Guidelines, and Consensus Statements, moderated by seasoned content experts, offer one method to rapidly distribute new information in a timely manner and also guide minimal standards of treatment of clinical care pathways as they are developed as part of bundled care programs...

Cardiac surgery with the use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is known to induce an inflammatory response in patients. This response may be even more pronounced in pediatric patients given their small body size compared to adults. Several interventions have been instituted in an effort to attenuate this response, including the use of corticosteroids in the pump prime. However, the clinical effectiveness and potential harmful effects of steroid use have been the source of recent debate. Therefore, our institution made the decision to evaluate the use of methylprednisolone in our CPB prime...

BACKGROUND: The use of administrative data for surgical site infection (SSI) surveillance leads to inaccurate reporting of SSI rates [1]. A quality improvement (QI) initiative was conducted linking clinical registry and administrative databases to improve reporting and reduce the incidence of SSI [2]. METHODS: At our institution, The Society of Thoracic Surgeons Congenital Heart Surgery Database (STS-CHSD) and infection surveillance database (ISD) were linked to the enterprise data warehouse containing electronic health record (EHR) billing data...

OBJECTIVE: Dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) are complex lesions consisting of abnormal connections between meningeal arteries and dural venous sinuses and/or cerebral veins. The goal of treatment is surgical or endovascular occlusion of the fistula or fistulous nidus or at least the disconnection of the feeding vessels and the draining veins. Delayed angiographic data on previously embolized dural fistulas is lacking. The authors report their experience and the long-term angiographic results with embolization of intracranial DAVF using Onyx...

BACKGROUND: Accurate hospital outcome measures in congenital heart surgery are important to multiple initiatives. While methods have been developed to account for differences in procedural case-mix, characteristics patients bring into the operation that may also vary across hospitals and influence outcome have received less attention. We evaluated the impact of these characteristics in a large cohort. METHODS: Patients undergoing congenital heart surgery at centers participating in The Society of Thoracic Surgeons Congenital Heart Surgery Database (2010 to 2013) with adequate data quality were included...

BACKGROUND: There is an increasing focus on optimizing health care quality and reducing costs. The care of children undergoing heart surgery requires significant investment of resources, and it remains unclear how costs of care relate to quality. We evaluated this relationship across a multicenter cohort. METHODS: Clinical data from The Society of Thoracic Surgeons Database were merged with cost data from the Pediatric Health Information Systems Database for children undergoing heart surgery (2006 to 2010)...

OBJECTIVES: The American Clinical Neurophysiology Society recommends continuous electroencephalographic monitoring after neonatal cardiac surgery because seizures are common, often subclinical, and associated with worse neurocognitive outcomes. We performed a quality improvement project to monitor for postoperative seizures in neonates with congenital heart disease after surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass. METHODS: We implemented routine continuous electroencephalographic monitoring and reviewed the results for an 18-month period...

BACKGROUND: In congenital heart surgery, hospital performance has historically been assessed using widely available administrative data sets. Recent studies have demonstrated inaccuracies in case ascertainment (coding and inclusion of eligible cases) in administrative versus clinical registry data; however, it is unclear whether this impacts assessment of performance on a hospital level. METHODS: Merged data from The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) database (clinical registry) and the Pediatric Health Information Systems (PHIS) database (administrative data set) for 46,056 children undergoing cardiac operations (2006-2010) were used to evaluate in-hospital mortality for 33 hospitals based on their administrative versus registry data...
