We evaluated the diagnostic utility of the three modalities of three-dimensional rotational angiography (3DRA): rotational angiography (RA), multiplanar reformat (MPR) and three-dimensional angiographic reconstruction (3D-R) in pediatric cardiac catheterization. The 3DRA studies were classified by anatomy of interest based on our injection protocol: pulmonary arteries (PA), aorta, cavopulmonary connection (CPC), and others. Retrospective review of 3DRA images by two reviewers for each modality was conducted with grading as inferior, similar, or superior in comparison with the diagnostic quality of fixed-plane angiography (FPA). The percentages of grades for each modality were averaged. Weighted kappa statistic was used to evaluate inter-rater reliability. In total, 114 3DRA studies were performed on 87 patients between August 2010 and March 2012. Median age was 2.7 years (1 day–48.4 years) and median weight 12.1 kg (3.6–106.5 kg). For RA: 79.4 % of the studies were of diagnostic quality and 52.2 % were superior; 3D-R: 82 % were of diagnostic quality and 65.8 % were superior; and MPR: 83.5 % were of diagnostic quality and 63 % were superior. Overall 3DRA technologies (RA, 3D-R, MPR) were of diagnostic quality or better in 111/114 (97.4 %) studies and 103/114 (90.4 %) were judged superior. Most common reasons for inferior grading were limited opacification and metallic artifact. In pediatric cardiac catheterization, 3DRA imaging was of diagnostic quality and frequently provided additional clinically relevant data when compared to FPA.

Objectives We are the first to describe the use of three-dimensional rotational angiography (3DRA) in creating multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) and volume rendering, in the catheterization suite, of airways at risk for compression by adjacent cardiac structures. Background 3DRA has emerged as a promising tool for improved visualization of cardiac and vascular structures in congenital heart disease. Methods This is a retrospective review of all available cases at our institution in which MPR from...

Abstract Cardiac catheterization procedures for patients with congenital and structural heart disease are becoming more complex. New imaging strategies involving integration of 3-dimensional images from rotational angiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT), and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) are employed to facilitate these procedures. We discuss the current use of these new 3D imaging technologies and their advantages and challenges when used to guide co...

Objectives: There is an increasing use of three-dimensional rotational angiography (3D-RA) during catheterization of congenital heart disease. Dose-area-product (DAP) measured by the angiography system and computed-tomography dose index (CTDI) do not appear practical for dose assessment. Hence, we performed real dose measurements in anthropomorphic phantoms. Methods: Three different anthropomorphic phantoms (10 kg, 19 kg and 73 kg bodyweight) equipped with thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLD) were...

Background Modern fluoroscopic angiography systems permit rendering of three-dimensional volumetric data sets using rotational angiography (3D-RA). Along with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or multi-detector-row computed tomography (MDCT) data sets, they can be fused with live fluoroscopy images for roadmapping during therapeutic procedures, but the value of multimodality fused data sets has not been clarified. Methods In a pediatric cardiac catheterization laboratory, we analyzed 78 intervent...

We performed X-ray and MRI-guided transfemoral right heart catheterization in consecutive patients undergoing clinical cardiac catheterization. We sampled both cavae and both pulmonary arteries. We compared success rate, time to perform key steps, and catheter visibility among X-ray and MRI procedures using air-filled or gadolinium- filled balloon-tipped catheters. Sixteen subjects (four with shunt, nine with coronary artery disease, three with other) underwent paired X-ray and MRI catheterizati...

Technologies which allow rotational angiographic image acquisition and three dimensional (3-D) vascular reconstruction with subsequent fluoroscopic registration for live 3-D image overlay are rapidly being adopted. We present the first use of rotational angiography with integrated 3-D image overlay for guidance during complex pulmonary artery stent placement. Technical considerations, advantages, and limitations of this procedural strategy are discussed. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Background— X-ray magnetic resonance fusion (XMRF) allows for use of 3D data during cardiac catheterization. However, to date, technical requirements have limited the use of this modality in clinical practice. We report on a new internal-marker XMRF method that we have developed and describe how we used XMRF during cardiac catheterization in congenital heart disease. Methods and Results— XMRF was performed in a phantom and in 23 patients presenting for cardiac catheterization who also needed car...

Abstract Pediatric cardiology is eminently dependent on imaging for the accurate diagnosis and treatment of congenital and structural heart disease. The understanding of the three-dimensionality of the normal and pathological inner structures of the heart, their dynamic spatial inter-relationships and the influences on flow are critical to planning and performing interventions. Advances in computer technology have made three-dimensional reconstructions readily available and the quality of these ...

BACKGROUND Three-dimensional printing is increasingly utilised for congenital heart defect procedural planning. CT or MR datasets are typically used for printing, but similar datasets can be obtained from three-dimensional rotational angiography. We sought to assess the feasibility and accuracy of printing three-dimensional models of CHD from rotational angiography datasets. METHODS Retrospective review of CHD catheterisations using rotational angiography was performed, and patient and procedura...

This paper aims to assess the usability and advantages of three-dimensional rotational angiography (3DRA) in patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) and its application in the cath lab. Up to now, its use in CHD is not widespread or standardized. We analyzed all patients with CHD who underwent a 3DRA at our facility between January 2010 and May 2019. The 3DRAs were evaluated for radiation exposure, contrast dye consumption, diagnostic utility and image quality. We performed 872 3DRAs. 3DRA ...

Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation (PPVI) is recognized as a feasible and low risk alternative to surgery to treat dysfunctional right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) in usually pluri-operated patients. Evolving technology allowed to develop different kind of prosthesis and to go from an initial treatment exclusively of stenotic conduit to an actual approach extended also to wide native RVOT. The Melody transcatheter pulmonary valve (TPV) and the Edwards Sapien valve are nowadays the mos...

There is no better representation of the need for personalization of care than the breadth and complexity of congenital heart disease. Advanced imaging modalities are now standard of care in the field, and the advancements being made to three-dimensional visualization technologies are growing as a means of pre-procedural preparation. Incorporating emerging modeling approaches, such as computational fluid dynamics, will push the limits of our ability to predict outcomes, and this information may ...

Objective: Stenting of ostial pulmonary artery stenosis presents several unique challenges. These include difficulty in defining anatomy and need for precise stent placement in order to avoid missing the ostial stenosis or jailing either the contralateral branch pulmonary artery or the ipsilateral upper lobe branch.

: Patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) with right ventricle outflow tract (RVOT) dysfunction need sequential pulmonary valve replacements throughout their life in the majority of cases. Since their introduction in 2000, the number of percutaneous pulmonary valve implantations (PPVI) has grown and reached over 10,000 procedures worldwide. Overall, PPVI has been proven safe and effective, but some anatomical variations can limit procedural success. This review discusses the current status ...

The history of congenital interventional cardiology has seen numerous groundbreaking innovations typically related to the introduction of a new device or a novel treatment technique. Similarly, imaging of cardiac defects has changed dramatically over the past decades, although some of the advancements have seemed to omit the catheterisation laboratories. Rotational angiography, one of the imaging techniques for guidance of cardiac catheterisation currently referred to as "advanced", in fact was ...
