Authors: Kim S, Cho YH, Park PW, Lee YT, Jun TG, Kim WS, Sung K, Yang JH, Chung S Abstract A 59-year-old man presented for possible durable ventricular assist device (VAD) implantation. He had previously been diagnosed with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries, a ventricular septal defect, an atrial septal defect, pulmonary valve stenosis, and aortic valve regurgitation. In the previous 22 years, he had undergone palliative cardiac surgery 3 times. VAD implantation as a bridge to transplantation was planned. Owing to severe adhesions, mesocardia, a left ascending aorta, and moderate aortic reg...

We present three cases of preoperative venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation as a bridge to reparative surgical repair in patients with cardiogenic shock who would otherwise require emergent cardiac surgery with an associated risk. Two patients were discharged, whereas the third patient died due to pulmonary artery rupture after a right ventricular assist device implantation, despite the fact that he had a successful bridge to reparative surgery and VSD repair. Finally, a review of the current literature concerning the use of preoperative venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation as a bridge to reparative...

Parag Barwad, Krishna Prasad, B Dinakar, Anish Bhargav, Krishna Santosh, Sanjeev NaganurAnnals of Pediatric Cardiology 2020 13(4):349-352 Ventricular septal defects (VSDs) comprise the most common congenital heart defect at birth. The chances of spontaneous closure of VSD depend on the size and location of the defect. Subpulmonic location is an unlikely site for the VSD to close spontaneously and known to have complications such as aortic valve prolapse and regurgitation. Percutaneous closure has become the preferred strategy for small–moderate-sized VSDs located in muscular, perimembranous areas. Subpulmonic locati...

We present a case of a 4-month-old child who had dextrocardia, large inlet ventricular septal defect, amounting to single ventricle, and severe pulmonary artery hypertension. There was a right ventricular diverticulum which passed through the foramina of Morgagni to give rise to a pulsating lump in the epigastrium. Right ventricular diverticulum presenting with a pulsating mass in the abdomen is a rare entity. The confirmation of diverticulum was made with histopathology.

We retrospectively analyzed medical records of 255 patients with a positive screening result for CH in the period 1991-2016 fo...

AbstractInterventional closure of congenital ventricular septal defects (VSD) is recording a continuous rise in acceptance. Complete atrioventricular block (cAVB) and residual shunting are major concerns during follow-up, but long-term data for both are still limited. We retrospectively evaluated the outcome of patients with interventional VSD closure and focused on long-term results (>  1 year follow-up). Transcatheter VSD closures were performed between 1993 and 2015, in 149 patients requiring 155 procedures (104 perimembranous, 29 muscular, 19 residual post-surgical VSDs, and 3 with multiple defects). The...
