OBJECTIVES To compare patients treated for incomplete Kawasaki disease whose practitioners followed versus did not follow American Heart Association criteria and to evaluate the association of cardiology consultation with adherence to these guidelines. STUDY DESIGN Single centre retrospective cohort study of patients <18 years old who received ≥1 dose of intravenous immunoglobulin for Kawasaki disease between 01/2006 and 01/2018. We collected demographics, clinical and laboratory data, coronary ...

Background Coronary artery abnormalities in Kawasaki disease (KD) are assessed using echocardiographic z-scores. We hypothesized that changing the coronary artery (CA) z-score model would alter diagnosis and management of children with KD. Methods In this retrospective single-center study of children treated for KD (9/2007-1/2020), we collected echocardiographic measurements for the left anterior descending (LAD), right (RCA), and left main (LMCA) coronary arteries during 3 illness phases and ca...

AHA guidelines (2004 and 2017) provided similar algorithms for diagnosing incomplete Kawasaki disease (KD). Our aims were to describe differences between subjects treated for incomplete KD where the algorithm was or was not adhered to and evaluate the influence of cardiology consultation on

AIM: To describe neurobehavioral patterns in neonates with congenital heart disease (CHD). METHOD: A cohort study describing neurobehavioral performance of neonates with CHD requiring cardiac surgery. The neonates were evaluated preoperatively and postoperatively with the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Network Neurobehavioral Scale (NNNS) and scores were compared with published normative values. Clinical factors were obtained by chart review to assess their association with behavior. The CHD NNNS ...

Abstract Objective Neonates undergoing congenital heart surgery require highly specialized, resource-intensive care. Location of care and degree of specialization can vary between and within institutions. Using a multi-institutional cohort, we sought to determine whether location of admission is associated with an increase in health care costs, resource use and mortality. Methods We retrospectively analyzed admission for neonates ( Results Of 19,984 neonates (60% male) identified, 39% were initi...

Background Disease progression of an isolated bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) in children is poorly understood and adult management guidelines may not be applicable. Thus, we sought to evaluate disease progression of pediatric isolated BAV and its relationship to current management practices. Methods Children with a BAV and ≤mild aortic stenosis (AS) and/or aortic regurgitation (AR) at the time of initial evaluation were included in this retrospective cohort study (1/2005-12/2014). Outcomes included...

Inflammatory heart diseases include rheumatic fever, Kawasaki disease, and myocarditis. These conditions all stem from an inflammatory process that may lead to significant cardiac morbidity and mortality. These patients often present initially to the emergency department, and prompt recognition and treatment of these conditions are essential. Rheumatic fever is caused by group A streptococcal (GAS) infections and is diagnosed using the Jones criteria. Rheumatic fever may lead to mitral and/or ao...

Abstract The American College of Cardiology Adult Congenital and Pediatric Cardiology (ACPC) Section had attempted to create quality metrics (QM) for ambulatory pediatric practice, but limited evidence made the process difficult. The ACPC sought to develop QMs for ambulatory pediatric cardiology practice. Five areas of interest were identified, and QMs were developed in a 2-step review process. In the first step, an expert panel, using the modified RAND-UCLA methodology, rated each QM for feasib...
