Mitral valve chordae rupture in infancy is a rare, but life-threatening disease. The progression of acute cardiac failure has been reported, with emergency surgery being required in most cases. Mitral valve chordae rupture typically occurs at the age of 4-6 months. Echocardiography is needed to diagnose this disease, and accurate diagnosis is difficult for general pediatricians. We herein describe the case of an acutely ill 4-month-old infant, who was saved and discharged without neurological sequelae due to the early diagnosis of mitral valve chordae rupture, life support, and surgery...

OBJECTIVES: Targeted neonatal echocardiography refers to a focused assessment of myocardial performance and hemodynamics directed by a specific clinical question. It has become the standard of care in many parts of the world, but practice is variable, and there has been a lack of standardized training and evaluation to date. Targeted neonatal echocardiography was first introduced to Canada in 2006. The purpose of this study was to examine the characteristics of targeted neonatal echocardiography practice and training methods in Canadian neonatal intensive care units (NICUs)...

Congenital heart defects (CHD) occur in less than one percent of all newborns. Echocardiography represents the imaging modality of choice for morphological and functional assessment. In childhood the different CHD types can be diagnosed trustfully and can be performed bedside. In the follow-up of CHD cross sectional imaging plays an important role and therefore it is essential for the radiologist to know the features, challenges and limitations of echocardiography. Within this review article a systematic approach for morphological and functional assessment of the heart will is given along with representative example images...

BACKGROUND: Focused cardiac ultrasound (FoCUS) is a simplified, clinician-performed application of echocardiography that is rapidly expanding in use, especially in emergency and critical care medicine. Performed by appropriately trained clinicians, typically not cardiologists, FoCUS ascertains the essential information needed in critical scenarios for time-sensitive clinical decision making. A need exists for quality evidence-based review and clinical recommendations on its use. METHODS: The World Interactive Network Focused on Critical UltraSound conducted an international, multispecialty, evidence-based, methodologically rigorous consensus process on FoCUS...

INTRODUCTION: Performed for many years in clinical settings, pleural and lung ultrasound (PLUS) has emerged to be an invaluable tool to diagnose underlying conditions of respiratory failure, to monitor disease progression and to ensure appropriate therapeutic intervention. PLUS basically relies on the analysis of two prevalent ultrasound artefacts: A-lines and B-lines. A-lines are hyperechoic reverberation artefacts of the pleural line. A-lines combined with lung sliding show that lungs are well aerated...

Functional echocardiography (fECHO) is the bedside use of ultrasound to longitudinally assess myocardial function, systemic and pulmonary blood flow, and intra and extracardiac shunts. This review will focus on fECHO as a tool for the clinician to assess the hemodynamic condition of sick neonates and describe situations where fECHO can help determine a pathophysiological choice for cardiovascular support. The very low birth weight infant with hypotension during the first 24h of life, assessment and monitoring of the ductus arteriosus, assessment and response to treatment of infants with pulmonary hypertension, the infant with perinatal asphyxia and the infant with sepsis and cardiovascular compromise are reviewed...

UNLABELLED: Point-of-care functional neonatal echocardiography (fnECHO) is increasingly used to assess haemodynamic status or patency of the ductus arteriosus (PDA). In Australasia, 90 % of neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) practice point-of-care fnECHO. The Australian Society of Ultrasound Medicine offers a training certificate for fnECHO. In Europe, the use and indications of fnECHO and the extent of point-of-care fnECHO training and accreditation are unknown. We aimed to assess utilisation and training of fnECHO in Europe...
