Cerium oxide nanoparticles with integrated gadolinium have been proved to be useful as contrast agents in magnetic resonance imaging. Of question is their performance in dual-energy computed tomography. The aims of this work are to determine (1) the relation between the computed tomography number and the concentration of the I, Gd or Ce contrast agent and (2) under what conditions it is possible to resolve the type of contrast agent. Hounsfield values of iodoacetic acid, gadolinium acetate and c...

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 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...

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 Patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) are at increased risk of developing ischemic stroke (IS) compared with controls without CHD. However, the long-term outcomes after IS, including IS recurrence and mortality risk, remain unclear. Methods and Results We identified all patients with CHD in Sweden who were born between 1930 and 2017 using the Swedish National Patient Register and the Cause of Death Register. Ten controls without CHD were randomly selected from the general popul...

AIMS We aimed to describe the risk of myocardial infarction (MI) in middle-aged and older patients with congenital heart disease (ACHD) and to evaluate the long-term outcomes after index MI in patients with ACHD compared with controls. METHODS AND RESULTS A search of the Swedish National Patient Register identified 17 189 patients with ACHD (52.2% male) and 180 131 age- and sex-matched controls randomly selected from the general population who were born from 1930 to 1970 and were alive at 40 yea...
