Abstract Patients with systemic morphological right ventricles (RVs), including congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries and dextro-transposition of the great arteries with a Mustard or Senning atrial baffle repair, have a high likelihood of developing systemic ventricular dysfunction. Unfortunately, there are a limited number of clinical studies on the efficacy of medical therapy for systemic RV dysfunction. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the effe...

Background Heart failure represents a common end-stage syndrome for many adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD). These patients, however, have been excluded from most heart transplantation research. It is not known how current criteria, derived from non-ACHD populations, used to determine priority at the time of transplant listing, impact the outcomes for ACHD patients listed for heart transplantation. Objectives The goal of this study was to investigate outcomes of ACHD in comparison to no...

Background Heart transplantation is increasing in patients with adult congenital heart disease (ACHD). In this population, the association of pulmonary hypertension (PH) with post-transplant outcomes is not well-defined. Methods Using data from the United Network for Organ Sharing database (1987 to 2014), we identified ACHD patients listed for heart transplantation, and examined survival between those with and without PH (pre-transplant PH defined as transpulmonary pressure gradient >12 mm Hg). ...

BACKGROUND Anesthetic management of an adult with failing Fontan physiology is complicated given inherent anatomical and physiological alterations. Neurosurgical interventions including thromboembolectomy may be particularly challenging given importance of blood pressure control and cerebral perfusion. CASE PRESENTATION We describe a 29 year old patient born with double outlet right ventricle (DORV) with mitral valve atresia who after multi-staged surgeries earlier in life, presented with failin...

Abstract Objective To determine if patients with congenital heart disease are undergoing laparoscopic surgery requiring abdominal insufflation and to compare the outcomes of these procedures to those who underwent an open surgical approach. Setting, Participants, Design This is a retrospective study utilizing the National Inpatient Sample from 2006 – 2014. Individuals with congenital heart disease who underwent at least one of six selected surgical procedures (laparoscopic or open) were included...

Abstract More than 90% of patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) are nowadays surviving to adulthood and adults account for over two-thirds of the contemporary CHD population in Western countries. Although outcomes are improved, surgery does not cure CHD. Decades of longitudinal observational data are currently motivating a paradigm shift toward a lifespan perspective and proactive approach to CHD care. The aim of this review is to operationalize these emerging concepts by presenting new c...

Abstract Background Data on the features of double-chambered right ventricular (DCRV) in adults are limited. It is also unclear how invasive and Doppler-derived assessments of right ventricular (RV) obstruction in DCRV correlate. Methods Retrospective review of 17 adults (age ≥18 years) diagnosed with DCRV who underwent right heart catheterization at Mayo Clinic, MN between 1990 and 2021. Clinical, echocardiographic, and invasive hemodynamics were abstracted from the medical charts. Results Mean...

Abstract Background Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) are widely accepted therapy in congenital heart disease (CHD) patients at risk of life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias or sudden cardiac death (SCD). Initial experience with subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) systems has shown a high efficacy. However, the use of S-ICD in complex ACHD (adult congenital heart disease) implies some specific considerations, as the safety for these patients in unknown and recommendations among physicians ma...

Background/purpose Prognostic factors remain unclear in patients undergoing transcatheter implantation of Venus P-valve for their severe pulmonary regurgitation associated with native right ventricular (RV) outflow tract. Method Between January 2017 and October 2018, we prospectively collected data of patient characteristics, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, cardiopulmonary exercise testing, and levels of N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) before and 6-12 months after valve...
