López-JiménezAbstractGerbode defect is defined as an abnormal left ventricle–right atrium shunting which may have congenital or acquired origin, first described by Thurman in 1838, representing 0.08% of intracardiac shunts and

We reported the surgical repair of bilateral CDH in a male infant aged 6 weeks. The patient had herniation of the liver on the right side with HPF in association with anomalous drainage of the right pulmonary vein into the hepatic vein and ventricular septal defect. We approached both sides thoracoscopically; however, the right side required a subcostal incision. We separated the liver from the right lower lung lobe laterally using electrocautery, and the defect was closed with a mesh. The medial portion was left intact to avoid injury of the anomalous pulmonary venous drainage. After 2 weeks, the patients had a surgi...

We report on a seemingly asymptomatic patient with ALADCAPA and a small restrictive muscular ventricular septal defect diagnosed by echocardiogram in the neonatal period. Our patient underwent elective repair at 3.5  months of age after which feeding and growth improved dramatically. Multimodality imaging is helpful to confirm this rare anomaly; however, echocardiographic clues including lack of left coronary branching or an abnormal coronary course should raise suspicion for ALADCAPA. This case provides suppo rt for early repair in children with an incidental finding of this anomaly as subclinical ischemia may be und...

AbstractIn patients with subarterial ventricular septal defect (VSD), the progression of aortic regurgitation (AR) still remains unclear. This review is to identify the incidence of AR progression after VSD repair and to determine the optimal operation timing for subarterial VSD repair with or without aortic valve prolapse or AR. From January 2002 to December 2015, 103 patients who underwent subarterial VSD repair alone at our hospital were reviewed. All patients routinely underwent echocardiography (echo) performed by our pediatric cardiologists. The operative approach was through the pulmonary artery in all patients. The...

Biventricular repair of double-outlet right ventricle with non-committed ventricular septal defect (DORVncVSD) is preferred, but previously developed surgical procedures are complicated and associated with high mortality and morbidity. We developed a technique using an intraventricular conduit to connect VSD and aorta in this anomaly in patients older than 2 years.

Truncus arteriosus (TA) is a rare form of complex cyanotic congenital heart disease (CHD) (accounting for ∼2-4% of CHD lesions) where the pulmonary arteries (PAs), aorta and coronary arteries arise from a single great vessel.1,2 Complete surgical repair typically occurs in early infancy and involves PA reconstruction, insertion of a valved conduit or homograft between the right ventricular outflow tra ct (RVOT) and PAs, ventricular septal defect closure and, in some instances, repair or replacement of the native truncal valve.

Conclusions: Resection of subaortic membrane in children is associated with low mortality. Higher LVOT gradient, younger age at initial repair, and shorter valve-to-membrane distance were found to be associated with adverse outcome. Recurrence and reoperation rates are high, and progression of aortic insufficiency following subaortic membrane resection is common. Therefore, these patients warrant close follow-up into adult life.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To examine the performance of the routine 11-13 weeks scan in detecting fetal non-chromosomal abnormalities. METHODS: This was a retrospective study of prospectively collected data from 100,997 singleton pregnancies attending for a routine ultrasound examination for fetal anatomy, according to a standardized protocol, at 11-13 weeks' gestation. All continuing pregnancies had an additional scan at 18-24 weeks and 71,754 had a scan at either 30-34 or 35-37 weeks. The final diagnosis of fetal abnormalities was based on the results of postnatal examination in the case of livebirths and on the ...

ConclusionsDue to the relatively high prevalence of abnormal stress MPI, tailored protocols with a stress-first MPI as well as the use of 2-day protocols and advanced imaging technologies including CZT SPECT, novel image reconstruction software, and PET MPI could substantially reduce radiation dose in complex CHD.
