BACKGROUND: Primary pulmonary vein stenosis (PPVS) still carries a poor prognosis, and prognostic factors remain controversial. The aim of this study was to determine outcomes and prognostic factors after PPVS repair in the current era. METHODS: Thirty patients with PPVS and a normal pulmonary vein (PV) connection operated on in 10 European/North American centers (2000-2012) were included retrospectively. A specific PVS severity score was developed based on the assessment of each PV...

BACKGROUND: Adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD) undergoing systemic atrioventricular valve (SAVV) surgery are a complex, understudied population. We assessed midterm outcomes and prognostic factors in ACHD undergoing SAVV surgery. METHODS: We performed retrospective evaluation of ACHD undergoing SAVV surgery from January 2005 to February 2016: 14 (33%) patients with congenital mitral valve stenosis/regurgitation, 15 (35%) with atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD), and 14 (33%) with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (ccTGA) with systemic tricuspid valve regurgitation...

Recurrence of subaortic stenosis (SAS) after surgery is common in children. The effects of patient characteristics and surgical timing on disease recurrence are largely unknown. We performed a retrospective study, assessing the relative effects of patient age and left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) gradient on the need for reoperation for recurrent SAS. We included all children <20 years of age who underwent initial surgical resection of SAS at our center, January 2003-December 2013. Stratified logistic regression was performed, considering the effects of patient demographics, clinical characteristics, echocardiographic parameters, and operative technique, and clustering standard errors by surgeon...

BACKGROUND: Repair of complete atrioventricular canal (CAVC) with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is a challenging operation increasingly being performed as a complete, primary repair in infancy. Previous studies have focused on perioperative outcomes; however, midterm valve function, ventricular function, and residual obstruction have received little attention. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 20 patients who underwent CAVC/TOF repair (January 2005 to December 2014)...

REVIEW
Emile Bacha
This review deals with a relatively new field in congenital heart surgery, valve preservation or, in cases of more severe pulmonary valve stenosis or dysplasia, valve reconstruction during tetralogy of Fallot repair. We describe the stepwise approach utilized, starting with simple maneuvers such as commissurotomy and valve dilation for mild pulmonary stenosis to commissurotomy and intraoperative balloon dilation for moderate stenosis, and finally transection of the annulus and valve reconstruction using a patch that acts as a modified monocusp...

OBJECTIVES: Our primary objective was to test the effects of first postoperative hematocrit on early shunt occlusion for children undergoing systemic to pulmonary artery shunt placement. Because any intervention to reduce shunt occlusion is only beneficial if it reduces mortality or is, at least, mortality neutral, we also tested the effects of first postoperative hematocrit on in-hospital mortality. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study on all neonates who underwent primary systemic to pulmonary artery shunt placement, with or without a Norwood/Damus-Kaye-Stansel procedure, at Columbia University Medical Center between January 2010 and July 2015...

OBJECTIVES: The objectives of this review are to discuss the pathophysiology, clinical impact and treatment of major noncardiac anomalies, and prematurity in infants with congenital heart disease. DATA SOURCE: MEDLINE and PubMed. CONCLUSION: Mortality risk is significantly higher in patients with congenital heart disease and associated anomalies compared with those in whom the heart defect occurs in isolation. Although most noncardiac structural anomalies do not require surgery in the neonatal period, several require surgery for survival...

BACKGROUND: Timely assessment of the burden of HIV/AIDS is essential for policy setting and programme evaluation. In this report from the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 (GBD 2015), we provide national estimates of levels and trends of HIV/AIDS incidence, prevalence, coverage of antiretroviral therapy (ART), and mortality for 195 countries and territories from 1980 to 2015. METHODS: For countries without high-quality vital registration data, we estimated prevalence and incidence with data from antenatal care clinics and population-based seroprevalence surveys, and with assumptions by age and sex on initial CD4 distribution at infection, CD4 progression rates (probability of progression from higher to lower CD4 cell-count category), on and off antiretroviral therapy (ART) mortality, and mortality from all other causes...

After pulmonary artery (PA) patch augmentation, surgical or catheterization reintervention to address PA stenosis is not uncommon. Multiple patch materials are available and the need for reintervention may be related to characteristics of the patch material. In this retrospective chart review of patients who underwent PA augmentation from 2004 through 2013, we compare outcomes after PA augmentation with standard patch (SP) material and extracellular matrix (ECM) patch material. The primary outcome was reintervention-free survival (surgery or catheterization) using Kaplan-Meier survival analysis with the log-rank test...

Survival is significantly compromised in infants born with congenital diaphragmatic hernia and major cardiac anomalies. Mortality is highest when congenital diaphragmatic hernia occurs in association with d-transposition of the great arteries. We present three infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia associated with d-transposition of the great arteries from a single institution. All three infants survived to discharge after surgical repair/palliation of both the diaphragmatic hernia and heart defect and are doing well at last follow-up...

The involvement of the hemodynamic expertise in the operating room led to the development of new strategies aimed to improve both early and long-term outcome of patients with congenital heart disease. During the last decade, with the aim of preserving the pulmonary valve function, we embarked on a new surgical approach, which combines surgical and interventional techniques, which are performed in the operating room. We believe that the preservation of the pulmonary valve function can be extended to any patients with classic tetralogy of Fallot and other selected patients with congenital pulmonary valve hypoplasia and dysfunction...

Pulmonary valve (PV) incompetence following transannular patch (TAP) repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) results in long-term morbidity and mortality. Valve-sparing repairs have recently gained recognition; however, they may be associated with residual pulmonary stenosis (PS) in patients with small PV z scores. We sought to determine whether a repair that increases the PV annulus and augments the valve leaflet with a biomaterial would result in annular growth and in longer duration of valve competence compared with TAP...

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...
