BACKGROUND Patients with CHD can be exposed to high levels of cumulative ionising radiation. Utilisation of electroanatomic mapping during catheter ablation leads to reduced radiation exposure in the general population but has not been well studied in patients with CHD. This study evaluated the radiation sparing benefit of using three-dimensional mapping in patients with CHD. METHODS Data were retrospectively collected from the Catheter Ablation with Reduction or Elimination of Fluoroscopy multi...

Background null Salih myopathy, characterised by both congenital myopathy and fatal dilated cardiomyopathy, is an inherited muscle disorder that affects skeletal and cardiac muscles. TTN has been identified as the main cause of this myopathy, the enormous size of this gene poses a formidable challenge to molecular genetic diagnostics. null Method null In the present study, whole-exome sequencing, cardiac MRI, and metabolic parameter assessment were performed to investigate the genetic causes of ...

BACKGROUND Yasui procedure is surgical repair intended to preserve biventricular function for patients with left ventricle outflow tract obstruction associated with aortic arch lesions and ventricular septal defect. METHODS Retrospective chart review analysis of all patients who had Yasui procedure (2008-2020) comparing midterm outcome of one versus two stage repair. RESULTS Twenty patients (70% female) underwent Yasui procedure in our center. Eight patients (40%) had left ventricle outflow trac...

Introduction null In the absence of evidence-based guidelines, paediatric cardiologists monitor patients in the ambulatory care setting largely according to personal, patient, institutional, and/or financial dictates, all of which likely contribute to practice variability. Minimising practice variability may optimise quality of care while incurring lower costs. We sought to describe self-reported practice patterns and physician attitudes about factors influencing their testing strategies using v...
In a 6-year-old child patient, transthoracic echocardiography revealed a large saccular structure (with anechogenic content) in the left atrium, near the fossa ovalis, and diagnosis of the left atrial septal pouch was made. The left atrial septal pouch is a kangaroo pouch-like structure on the left side of the interatrial septum, opened into the left atrial cavity without a connection between the left and right atria. It occurs when the foramen ovale is absent but the septum primum and septum se...

BACKGROUND Vascular rings cause respiratory symptoms in children. Treatment consists of surgical division; however, data regarding mid-term results are scarce. The purpose of this study was to evaluate clinical results of vascular ring surgery. METHODS Retrospective chart review of consecutive patients who underwent vascular ring surgery. Mid-term follow-up consisted of clinic visits and telephone questionnaire over a 1-year period sampling at five points in time. RESULTS Follow-up of 85 patient...

OBJECTIVE This study aimed to explore the effects of eye masks on the sleep quality and pain of school-age children with CHD after surgery. METHODS Forty school-age children with CHD who underwent open-heart surgery in the Cardiac Surgery Department of a provincial hospital in China from January 2020 to December 2020 were selected. The children were randomly divided into the experimental group (n = 20) and the control group (n = 20). Children in the control group were given routine sleep care, a...
Whether the acute inflammation caused by Kawasaki disease will have an effect on the endothelial function of coronary arteries in the future is unknown. METHODS The coronary flow velocity reserve of the left anterior descending artery was examined by transthoracic Doppler echocardiography in 189 patients (male 125, female 64) with a history of Kawasaki disease and 10 volunteers (control). Their ages ranged from 6 to 40 years (median 22 years). The patients were divided into nine groups based on ...

BACKGROUND Infective endocarditis is a major threat after prosthetic pulmonary valve replacement. Early diagnosis may improve outcomes. METHODS A structured patient education programme for prevention and early diagnosis of infective endocarditis was developed at our institution since 2016. Time delay between onset of symptoms of prosthetic pulmonary valve endocarditis and its diagnosis (defined as initiation of appropriate high-dose intravenous antibiotic treatment) was compared for patients pre...
