BACKGROUND Congenital heart disease (CHD) is a lifelong predisposing condition for infective endocarditis (IE). As a consequence of advances in pediatric care, the number of adults with CHD is now exceeding the number of children. The goal of the present study was to determine the cumulative incidence of IE in patients with CHD and detect temporal changes compared with controls. METHODS Nationwide registry-based case-control study of patients with CHD born 1930-2017 matched with 10 random contro...

AIMS: Survival rates for unoperated patients with Ebstein's anomaly (EA) are unknown. We estimated overall long-term mortality in operated and unoperated EA patients, compared with the general population in Sweden. METHODS AND RESULTS: Using national medical registries, Swedish individuals born 1970-1993 and diagnosed with EA between 1970 and 2011 were included. The hazard ratio for overall mortality for EA patients (n = 216) vs. the matched comparison cohort (n = 2160) was 43.7 (95% confidence ...

Abstract null null These debate articles show the arguments “pro” and “con” ICD implantation as primary prevention in systemic RV. They illuminate the weak evidence for either recommendation, due to a lack of large randomized trials (RTCs).

Abstract Background The number of adults with complex congenital heart disease (ACHD) is increasing and patients are living longer with the condition; therefore, there is a need to investigate lifestyle factors and assess the physical fitness of these patients and to prescribe exercise. We aimed to evaluate the effects of exercise, with or without supplemental oxygen, in patients with complex ACHD. Methods Between August 2018 and December 2019, 35 patients were assessed and eight were included i...

Background Atrial arrhythmias (ie, intra-atrial reentrant tachycardia and atrial fibrillation) are a leading cause of morbidity and hospitalization in adults with congenital heart disease (CHD). Little is known about their effect on quality of life and other patient-reported outcomes (PROs) in adults with CHD. Objective The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of atrial arrhythmias on PROs in adults with CHD and explore geographic variations. Methods Associations between atrial arrhyth...

Abstract Patients with a systemic right ventricle are prone to serious arrythmias and sudden death. What are the arguments in favor of primary revention of SCD with ICD in patients with a systemic right ventricle ?

INTRODUCTION Interatrial communication is associated with an increased risk of decompression sickness (DCS) in scuba diving. It has been proposed that there would be a decreased risk of DCS after closure of the interatrial communication, i.e., persistent (patent) foramen ovale (PFO). However, the clinical evidence supporting this is limited. METHODS Medical records were reviewed to identify Swedish scuba divers with a history of DCS and catheter closure of an interatrial communication. Thereafte...

Abstract Background The aim of this study was to examine range of motion and muscle function in the upper extremity and spine in patients with coarctation of the aorta (CoA) comparing different surgical approaches. Methods From October 2017 to February 2019, 150 patients were assessed for inclusion. A total of 99 patients (n = 75 CoA, n = 24 control), were included and assessed regarding muscle function, arm length and circumference, and spinal and thoracic mobility. Results There were significa...

BACKGROUND Ascending aortic dilation is a feared complication in adults with repaired coarctation of the aorta, as the condition is associated with life-threatening complications such as aortic dissection and rupture. However, the data are currently limited regarding factors associated with ascending aortic dilation in these patients. METHODS AND RESULTS From the national register of congenital heart disease, 165 adult patients (≥ 18 years old) with repaired coarctation of the aorta, and echocar...
