BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in patients with Turner syndrome (TS), and cardiovascular surgery is frequently required for management of these patients. TS is associated with medical comorbidities than can complicate the care of this patient population. AIM: To describe the cardiovascular surgical outcomes of patients with TS. METHODS: A retrospective case series was compiled of 51 consecutive TS patients who had at least one cardiovascular surgery at Mayo Clin...

INTRODUCTION: Mechanisms and risk factors for cerebrovascular accidents (CVAs) in Ebstein's anomaly (EA) are not well understood; hence, we aimed to clarify these in a large cohort of EA patients. METHODS: Patients with a confirmed diagnosis of EA were retrospectively reviewed. Baseline characteristics were compared between patients with and without a prior history of CVA using logistic regression modeling. Cox regression analysis was used to identify predictors of CVA following initial evaluati...

Aims: Ventricular dysfunction or structural alteration of either ventricle is a well-established risk factor for sudden death (SD). Ebstein anomaly (EA) can present with both right and left heart abnormalities; however, predictors of SD have not been described. We therefore sought to characterize the incidence and risk factors of SD among a large cohort of patients with EA. Methods and results: All EA patients who underwent evaluation at a high-volume institution over a 4-decade period were retr...

BACKGROUND: The study aim was to analyze the authors' experience with aortic root surgery in Marfan syndrome (MFS), and to expand the surgical outcome data of patients meeting the Ghent criteria (Marfan registry). METHODS: Analyses were performed of data acquired from MFS patients (who met the Ghent criteria), including an aortic root surgery and Kaplan-Meier survival. RESULTS: Between April 2004 and February 2012, a total of 59 MFS patients (mean age at surgery 36 ± 13 years) underwent 67 opera...

Background Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is associated with increased cardiovascular risk. Methods To assess the role of exercise echocardiography (EE) in the evaluation of patients with RA, follow-up (mean, 6.7±3.7 years) was retrospectively obtained in 159 patients with RA who underwent EE. Patients were matched for age, gender, and cardiovascular risk factors with 454 controls who underwent EE. Results Patients with RA were more likely to have positive results for ischemia on EE (odds ratio, 2.32...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze symptoms, associated anomalies, diagnostic approach, and surgical procedures in patients with partial fenestrations of the coronary sinus, a rare congenital disorder. BACKGROUND: Partial fenestrations of the walls that usually separate the coronary sinus from the left atrium, also known as partial unroofing of the coronary sinus, may result in increased flow of blood to the lungs, cyanosis, or bidirectional shunting. The diagnosis is important, but difficult to confirm. MET...

Background— Sinus venosus atrial septal defect (SVASD) differs from secundum atrial septal defect by its atrial septal location and its association with anomalous pulmonary venous connection (APVC). Data on long-term outcome after surgical repair are limited. Methods and Results— We reviewed outcomes of 115 patients (mean age±SD 34±23 years) with SVASD who had repair from 1972 through 1996. APVC was present in 112 patients (97%). Early mortality was 0.9%. Complete follow-up was obtained for 108 ...
