Abnormal origin of left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is one of the most common causes of myocardial ischemia and infarction in childhood. This study aimed to determine the correlation between age at clinical presentation, level of ventricular dysfunction, and post-repair outcomes. This is retrospective study from 1993 to 2018 including thirty-one patients. The study cohort was divided into two groups according to age ( null 6 months). The significance level was set at p 0.0...

Anthracycline (AC) therapy is associated with left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. Left atrial (LA) size and function are used to assess LV diastolic function in heart failure in adults. Data on LA size and function following AC therapy in children is limited. We hypothesized that LA size and function will be abnormal in children following AC chemotherapy. This retrospective review included patients who received AC for pediatric cancers. Controls had normal echocardiograms performed for evaluation...

Debate exists on the usefulness of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTn) testing in pediatric patients due to the perceived low incidence of myocardial injury and lack of data concerning its efficacy. We evaluated the contribution of an increased hs-cTnT above the 99th percentile upper-reference limit (URL) to clinical diagnoses made in pediatric patients presenting to the emergency department (ED). Retrospective cohort study including patients aged 0–18 years presenting to the ED from 2018...

Cardiac amyloidosis is a rare cause of cardiomyopathy, reported exclusively in adults. We report the first known case presenting in childhood. A 12-year-old boy presented with syncope and diagnosed with ventricular non-compaction by echocardiography. Eventual genetic testing confirmed a TTR gene mutation associated with hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis.

The relationship between center-specific variation in indication for pediatric heart transplantation and short-term outcomes after heart transplantation is not well described. We used merged patient- and hospital-level data from the United Network for Organ Sharing and the Pediatric Health Information Systems to analyze outcomes according to transplant indication for a cohort of children (≤ 21 years old) who underwent heart transplantation between 2004 and 2015. Outcomes included 30-day mortalit...

Marfan syndrome is caused by mutations of the fibrillin-1 gene, which weakens the connective tissue integrity. Since 2003, bioavailability regulations of TGF-s through fibrillin alterations have been presumed of being the culprit mechanisms for aortic aneurysm development. We present the analysis of our single-center Marfan children and adolescents cohort to assess the influence of age, sex, degree of cardiovascular involvement and dosage on losartan effectivity. This prospective longitudinal re...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of the regular introduction of new technologies into interventional cardiac catheterization procedures, in this case new atrial septal defect (ASD) closure devices, while conducting a multi-center collaborative initiative to reduce radiation usage during all procedures. Data were collected prospectively by 8 C3PO institutions between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2017 for ASD device closure procedures in the cardiac catheterization lab du...

Pediatricians had higher rates of ordering pediatric cholesterol screening than family medicine (FM) clinicians. This study aims to compare knowledge, attitude, and practices of clinicians’ pediatric cholesterol screening practices and attitudes between these two specialties. A 14-item electronic survey using Likert scales was sent to all clinicians in the institution’s Departments of Pediatrics and FM between 2018 and 2019. Chi-square and t-tests were used to compare pediatricians and FM clinic...

Socioeconomic status (SES) affects a range of health outcomes but has not been extensively explored in the single ventricle population. We investigate the impact of community-level deprivation on morbidity and mortality for infants with single ventricle heart disease in the first year of life. Retrospective cohort analysis of infants enrolled in the National Pediatric Cardiology Improvement Collaborative who underwent staged single ventricle palliation examining mortality and length of stay (LOS...
