Waardenburg syndrome is a rare autosomal dominant disease that may cause hearing loss, pigmentary abnormalities, neurocristopathy and partial albinism. Incidence is estimated as 2%-3% among the cases of congenital deafness and 1/42,000 of the general population. Children with Waardenburg syndrome usually require anaesthesia for the cochlear implant operation in early age. The features of the syndrome that may bear importance for anaesthetic management are laryngomalacia, multiple muscle contractures, limited neck movements, cyanotic cardiopathy and electrolyte imbalance...

BACKGROUND: Transposition of the great arteries (TGA) is the most common cyanotic cardiopathy, with an incidence ranging between 0.2 and 0.4 per 1000 live births. Many patients not treated in the first few months of life may progress with severe pulmonary vascular disease. Treatment of these patients may include palliative surgery to redirect the flow at the atrial level. OBJECTIVE: Report our institutional experience with the palliative Senning procedure in children diagnosed with TGA and double outlet right ventricle with severe pulmonary vascular disease, and to evaluate the early and late clinical progression of the palliative Senning procedure...

The gross and microscopic findings from 2 fatal cases of plastic bronchitis (PB) in children, a rare entity characterized by the formation of large mucous casts in the bronchial tree, are presented. These casts differ from ordinary mucus because of their increased cohesiveness and consistency, resulting in solid structures that model the respiratory airway tree. PB usually presents as a complication of underlying diseases, which determine the prognosis of the afflicted patients. Conditions commonly associated with PB include congenital cardiopathies, lymph vessel malformations, asthma, and sickle cell disease...

The objective of this study is to understand what it means to a mother to have a child with a heart disease. In order to do so, a phenomenological approach was used. The study was carried out with mothers of children with congenital cyanotic cardiopathy at the Infant Cardiology Center of a public hospital in Campo Grande, State of Mato Grosso do Sul. Ten open interviews were made based on the following guiding question: What does it mean to you to have a child with a heart disease? The comprehensive analysis of the reported speeches made possible the construction of three categories: "Discovering the disease: being up against the unknown"; "Living together with cardiopathy: being with the child in the disease", and "Believing in a stronger force: the necessary support"...

INTRODUCTION: Brain abscess is a rare infection in infants. Morbidity and mortality are high but have decreased due to advances in neuroimaging studies and the use of new antibiotics. We describe six cases of brain abscess diagnosed at the Gregorio Marañón Children's Hospital between January 1996 and September 2003. METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review of patients with brain abscess. The variables analyzed were age, sex, clinical symptoms and signs, radiological studies, etiology, therapy, and clinical outcome...

A 19-year-old man with Holt-Oram syndrome (HOS) underwent emergency surgical treatment of an occipital abscess. He presented total aplasia of the radius and first and second finger of the left hand, asymmetric thorax and complex cyanotic cardiopathy with double output of the right ventricle that had been treated on several occasions, malpositioning of the large vessels and interventricular conduction. He had been treated with digoxin for episodes of supraventricular tachycardia. After premedication with 0.4 mg of atropine, balanced general anesthesia was induced with etomidate and remifentanil and maintained with O2/air/desflurane and infused remifentanil...

Currently, echography coupled with Doppler is a primary technique in the diagnosis of congenital heart disease. Since September 1993, the pediatric ward of the Tokoin teaching hospital of Lome has been equipped with this technology. During the following 23 months, there were 299 examinations with Doppler-echocardiography among the consultations of 15,082 children. Eighty-two cases of congenital heart defects were detected in 73 children, aged between 3 days and 13 years, of whom 79.4% were between 7 days and 30 months old...

We have analyzed 36 newborns (19 males and 17 females), with cyanotic cardiopathies in whom a systemic-pulmonary shunt had been performed. These patients were admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unite between January 1985 and June 1990. We studied the perioperative events with the aim of describing the general features of this palliative surgery in the neonatal period and to determine the factors which indicate a bad prognosis. The age at admission was 10.5 +/- 16.5 days and at surgery was 19.5 +/- 20 days...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effects of premedication in children with congenital heart disease. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Twenty-five children scheduled for surgical repair of congenital heart defects were studied. Two groups were formed based on whether cardiopathy was noncyanotic (group CNC) or cyanotic (group CC). Patients were premedicated rectally with 4 mg/kg pentobarbital and, 15 minutes later, with 0.15 mg/kg of morphine chloride by subcutaneous perfusion. SpO2 was monitored, as was the degree of sedation and airway obstruction prior to premedication (T1), 15 minutes after administration of pentobarbital (T2) and 30 minutes after morphine (T3)...

Hypertrophical osteortropathy syndrome, which consists of arthritis, periostitis, growth of the periarticular soft tissue and fingers like drumsticks, is associated to several cardiopulmonary sufferings, its relation to cyanotic congenital cardiopathies has been rarely informed. Two cases of this rare association are described in this article, and the possible patogenic mechanisms are discussed. To distinguish this syndrome from other rheumatic sufferings such as Rheumatic Fever, Juvenile Rheumatoide Arthritis or Gout is an important point, because its treatment and prognostic are different...

Pre- and post-ductal paO2-values of 116 newborn babies were measured under hyperoxic conditions (FiO2 = 1.0). Total and ductal right-to-left shunts were calculated according to Berggren (1942) and Gersony et al. (1972), respectively. Total shunt volumes amount to 17.4 +/- 5.9 (9--28)% of the aortic minute output in healthy term newborn babies, to 25.0 +/- 5.3 (19--36)% in healthy pre-term newborns and to 13.5 +/- 4.7 (4--19)% on the first day of life in healthy newborn babies from 4. to 28. day of life emphasising the significance of the decline of the arterial oxygen content during the neonatal adaptation period...

An 11 year old boy had a congenital pulmonary arteriovenous fistula, which was previously mistaken for a congenital cyanotic cardiopathy. After the diagnosis was established, the patient was successfully operated. Considering the high mortality of the untreated cases and the recent advances in pulmonary surgery techniques, the importance of a correct diagnosis and an early surgical treatment of these lesions, is reaffirmed.
