CONCLUSIONS: The data suggest a contribution of dysregulated Notch signaling to the pathogenesis of tetralogy of Fallot and importance of Notch signaling level for the functional state of cardiac mesenchymal cells, which could be critical considering these cells for potential cell therapy approaches.

Peripheral pulmonary artery stenosis (PPAS) is a relatively rare form of congenital heart disease typically associated with genetic syndromes, such as Williams or Alagille syndromes. However, some patients present with severe stenosis without associated syndromes. The purpose of the study was to review our surgical experience in such patients. This was a retrospective review of 30 patients who underwent surgical repair for peripheral pulmonary artery stenosis. Concomitant anatomical diagnoses in 20 patients (67%) included: supravalvar aortic stenosis (n=8), tetralogy of Fallot (n=4), d-transposition of the great arteries (...
The objective of this study is to simulate how the hemodynamics develops in typical PH cases without treatment. A lumped-parameter circuit platform of human circulation system is set up to simulate hemodynamic abnormalities of PH in different etiologies and pathogenesis. Four typical cases are considered, which are distal pulmonary artery stenosis, left ventricular diastolic dysfunction, ventricular septal defect, and mitral stenosis. The authors propose regulation laws for chambers and vessels to adapt the abnormal hemodynamic conditions for each PH case. The occurrence and development of each PH case are simulated over t...

Conclusions : Perioperative outcomes in patients with GA/S suggested an increased residual cardiovascular disease and increased resource usage. Notably, this is the first study demonstrating the effect of race and ethnicity on PLOS in CTHD patients.
ConclusionThis is the first published case of Jansen ‐de Vries syndrome in Chinese population, which will help us to enrich the clinical spectrum of this syndrome.

ConclusionInterventional paediatric catheterisation has grown remarkably in Morocco. These procedures have become the treatment of choice for many cardiac lesions, and serve as alternatives or adjuncts to surgical treatment.
