To establish diagnostic reference levels (DRLs) and investigate deterministic and stochastic risks in pediatric interventional cardiology (IC) procedures. Exposure parameters were retrospectively reviewed for 373 patients treated between May 2016 and November 2018 at a single specialized hospital. Weight specific DRLs were derived for pediatric IC procedures. Additionally, peak skin dose (Dskin,max) was measured using thermoluminescent dosimeters for a sample of 7 diagnostic and 43 therapeutic procedures. Finally, using PCXMC software, organ doses were computed and the risk of exposure-induced cancer death (REID) was estim...

ConclusionThe isolated atrial switch is rarely employed as its outcomes are inferior to the arterial switch operation in the setting of the dextro ‐transposition of the great arteries. However, it remains the procedure of choice for AV discordance with VA concordance as it leads to physiologically corrected biventricular circulation.

AbstractObjectiveThe systemic ‐to‐pulmonary shunt (SPS) and right ventricle to pulmonary artery (RV‐PA) connection were evaluated to pursue the goal of rehabilitating dysplastic native PAs via establishment of antegrade blood flow. However, the application of these two palliative operations was still confusing. We compared the two operations to determine their different effects on patients who have pulmonary atresia, ventricular septal defects, and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (MAPCAs).MethodsFrom January 2011 to January 2016, 44 patients received the SPS procedure, and 54 patients received the RV ‐PA c...

ConclusionsSecondary subaortic stenosis (SSS) occurs after DORV surgery. The Konno operation or the RRIB can be selected for surgical correction, which is more satisfactory and safer for the treatment of stenosis. For patients with SSS after the operation of VSD or PAVSD, the FMR can be chosen for the operation. The operation is relatively simple, the operation time is short and the effect is satisfactory. Existing problems include that the incidence of a third ‐degree atrioventricular block is slightly higher after the operation.

A 40-something suffered witnessed ventricular fibrillation, had bystander CPR, but could not be defibrillated after 4 attempts.He was transferred to the ED and put on extracorporeal life support (ECLS, ECMO).A series of ED Transesophageal echos (TEE) was done over 23 minutes before an ECG was recorded.  We usually do not get ROSC before angiography in these cases, and recording the ECG is not as important as usual, because we send them all to the cath lab by our ECMO protocol.This is before another defibrillation attempt, during chest compressions:Orientation:The probe is in the esophagus, right next to the left ...
