We report two cases of interrupted right aortic arch associated with isolated left pulmonary artery and bilateral ductus arteriosus in the first case and with truncus arteriosus in the second case. Computed tomography was complementary to echocardiography in delineating the anatomic details in both cases, informing surgical repair with reconstruction of a left aortic arch in the first case and right arch in the second case.

Publication date: January 2019Source: The Annals of Thoracic Surgery, Volume 107, Issue 1Author(s): Meng Li, Li Zhang, Ziming Zhang, Shuyuan Wang, Nianguo Dong, Guohua Wang, Mingxing XieA 26-year-old woman with a diagnosis of congenital heart disease was admitted to the hospital with exertional dyspnea, cyanotic complexion, and bilateral lower limb edema. All tests revealed isolated severe right ventricular hypertrophy. She was in poor condition, with a diminishing chance for routine surgical treatment, so she was scheduled for orthotopic homologous heart transplantation. After the operation, isolated severe right ventricu...

ConclusionsRepair of CoA, even with associated transverse arch hypoplasia, by REEEA through left thoracotomy has a low mortality, low reintervention rate, and low incidence of late hypertension.

This study examined outcomes of a cohort undergoing a first M-MVR at age younger than 21 years.MethodsWe queried the Pediatric Cardiac Care Consortium, a multi-institutional United States-based cardiac intervention registry, for patients undergoing first M-MVR for 2-ventricle congenital heart disease. Survival and transplant status through 2014 were obtained from Pediatric Cardiac Care Consortium and linkage with the National Death Index and the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network.ResultsWe identified 441 patients (median age, 4.3 years; interquartile range, 1.3 to 10.1 years) meeting study criteria. The commones...

We examined annual costs through 5 years, standardized to 2016 dollars, using multivariate regression models, controlling for site and baseline patient factors.ResultsIn the first year, including the CABG surgery, annual average costs were $66,599 (SE, $1,946) for the on-pump group and $70,552 (SE, $1,954) for the off-pump group. In years 2 to 5, average costs ranged from $15,000 to $20,000 per year. There was no significant difference between on-pump and off-pump across the 5 years. We explored differences among high-risk subgroups (diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, peripheral vascular disease, cerebrovascu...

Here is a discussion I first posted in my Wheat Belly Total Health book, chapter 7: Grainless Living Day-to-Day. Glycemic index, or GI, describes how high blood sugar climbs over 90 minutes after consuming a food compared to glucose. The GI of a chicken drumstick? Zero: No impact on blood sugar. How about three fried eggs? Zero, too. This is true for other meats, oils and fats, seeds, mushrooms, and non-starchy vegetables. You eat any of these foods and blood sugar doesn’t budge, no glycation phenomena follow, no glucotoxic or lipotoxic damage to such things as your pancreas. There is nothing intrinsically wrong...

ConclusionsMajor anatomical variations or anomalies of the main great thoracic vessels in dogs without congenital cardiac disease were rare. An aberrant retroesophageal right subclavian artery was the most common anomaly found. Three slight variations of common carotid artery branching were identified. These findings might be of relevance for surgical or catheterization procedures.

ConclusionsDiabetes carries a significant health burden, and results vary across states. Efforts to prevent or delay diabetes or to improve diabetes management could reduce the health burden because of diabetes.

Dongjin Kim Magnitudes of health inequalities present consequences of socioeconomic impact on each health problem. To provide knowledge on the size of health problems in terms of socioeconomic burden, we examined the magnitudes and patterns of health inequalities across 12 health problems. A total of 17,292 participants older than 30 years were drawn from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES, 2010–2012). The age-adjusted prevalence ratios were compared across socioeconomic positions (SEPs) based on income, education, and occupation. The magnitudes of socioeconomic inequalities v...
