AIMS: Left pulmonary artery (LPA) stenosis is common in patients with cavopulmonary connections. Stent implantation is the treatment of choice but may be complicated or contraindicated by left main bronchus (LMB) compression due to limited retro-aortic space after a Damus-Kaye-Stansel (DKS) or Norwood operation. This study describes a novel double balloon technique of LPA stenting in patients at risk of LMB compression. METHODS AND RESULTS: A cohort study was performed in 11 patients who underwe...

Cardiac catheterization is a commonly used form of imaging and treatment in pediatric patients with congenital heart disease. Traditionally, two-dimensional conventional angiography was the method used, but since 2000 three-dimensional rotational angiography (3DRA) is increasingly used in the field of cardiology in both adult and pediatric patients. To investigate the use and applications of 3DRA in pediatric congenital cardiology, literature was systematically reviewed and 29 eligible articles ...

AIMS: Complex single ventricle topography, changes in vessel geometry after surgical steps and subsequent stenoses are difficult to visualise with biplane conventional angiography (CA). This study aimed to investigate the additional value of three-dimensional rotational angiography (3DRA) compared to CA for diagnostic and interventional purposes in children with univentricular hearts. METHODS AND RESULTS: Demographic data, clinical data and catheterisation details of both imaging techniques were...

Previously, median effective dose (ED) of 1.6 mSv per three-dimensional rotational angiography (3DRA) has been reported. This study evaluated ED and image quality in 3DRA after implementation of a simple dose reduction protocol in pediatric catheterizations. Simple conversion factors between 3DRA ED and readily available parameters at the cathlab were determined. The dose reduction protocol consisted of frame reduction (60–30 frames/s (f/s)), active collimation of the X-ray beam, usage of a read...

Abstract Background The arterial switch operation (ASO) is the preferred procedure for children with dextrotransposition of the great arteries or Taussig-Bing anomaly. Short- as well as long-term outcome of ASO are excellent, but coronary artery stenoses are reported as a common long-term complication. It has been hypothesized that these might result in sudden cardiac death late after ASO. Methods A systematic search of PubMed and EMBASE was conducted to evaluate sudden cardiac death because of ...
