4D flow magnetic resonance imaging in congenital heart diseases: Who can benefit?

ConclusionBased on our preliminary experience, 4D Flow has become a complementary imaging modality accessible in current practice and open to all patients. The quality of this examination was satisfactory and seems to require an estimated learning curve of 3 months according to our experience.

Abstract This cross-sectional study assessed distribution and pattern of echocardiography confirmed congenital heart disease, among 593 pediatric patients in outpatient departments of a tertiary care hospital in eastern India. Commonest defects were ventricular septal defect (43, 40.7%), atrial septal defect (241, 31.7%), and tetralogy of Fallot (125, 21%). PMID: 32060246 [PubMed - in process]

However, these guidelines are for patients living in high income countries. Separate guidelines, applicable to Indian children, are required when recommending an intervention for congenital he...

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 (...

AbstractPulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) related to left-to-right shunt can progress to Eisenmenger syndrome, a serious and fatal disease that is not yet curable. This pilot study considered stem cell injection as a new treatment modality in persistent pulmonary hypertension after the correction of a congenital heart defect. Three patients with persistent pulmonary hypertension after ventricular septal defect repair were included in this pilot study for a clinical trial. Mononuclear stem cells derived from patients ’ bone marrow specimens were injected into the right and left pulmonary arteries via cardiac cathe...

Children born with congenital heart disease (CHD) are now surviving at extraordinarily high rates; for most, their life expectancy may be comparable to that of the general population. However, despite the great advances in medical and surgical care, many people with CHD experience long-lasting neurodevelopmental difficulties. These include problems with attention and executive function skills, learning challenges, and in some cases, lower-than-normal IQs. Study links congenital heart disease and autism A recent study published in the journal Pediatrics provides compelling evidence that there may also be an association betw...

ConclusionsNo other reports about cardiac rhythm anomalies in individuals affected by FASD are actually available from the literature.We would like to make an alert for clinician, given the possibility of finding anomalies of heart conduction and rhythm in children affected by FASD even without structural congenital heart disease.
