Abstract For treatment of complex congenital heart disease, computer simulation using a three-dimensional heart model may help to improve outcomes by enabling detailed preoperative evaluations. However, no highly integrated model that accurately reproduces a patient's pathophysiology, which is required for this simulation has been reported. We modelled a case of complex congenital heart disease, double outlet right ventricle with ventricular septal defect and atrial septal defect. From preoperative computed tomography images, finite element meshes of the heart and torso were created, and cell model of cardiac elec...

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]

A former resident texted me this ECG, done for epigastric pain in an 18 year old.  The pain resolved immediately with treatment for acid reflux, and in the clinician's opinion was clearly GI in origin, but he wanted to know what the strange waves in the QRS were:See the unusual notching in II, III, aVF, and V2-V4.I had no idea what they were.  They reminded me of theDelayed Activation Wave associated with circumflex acute MI.See this case: https://hqmeded-ecg.blogspot.com/2018/05/is-there-delayed-activation-wave.html.But they are clearly different from this.I put it on Facebook EKG club and this is the ...

Publication date: January 2020Source: Archives of Cardiovascular Diseases Supplements, Volume 12, Issue 1Author(s): M. Drissa, H. Jamila, H. DrissaBackgroundAtrial septal defect (ASD) is one of the most common causes of congenital heart disease manifested in adulthood and a subgroup of patients may not develop symptoms until late adulthood.Aim of studyThe aim of our study was to describe clinical and likelihood picture of adults over 60 years born with an ASD type II.MethodsWe performed a retrospective analysis of adult's ASD referred to our institution from 2010 through 2018. Clinical, electrocardiographic, echocardiograp...

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...

Conclusion: This study highlights the recognition of the associated congenital heart disease with non-syndromic orofacial cleft patients. Global screening protocols designed for newborns with non-syndromic orofacial cleft are needed to eliminate late diagnosis of critical congenital heart diseases which might present operative risks of anesthesia and/or surgical procedures.

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.

AbstractObjectiveTo evaluate the role of ultrahigh ‐density mapping for conduction isthmus (CI) characterization in adult congenital heart disease (ACHD).BackgroundCatheter ablation remains suboptimal for ACHD with atypical intra ‐atrial reentrant tachycardias (IART) that can be challenging to define using existing mapping technology.MethodsAn ultrahigh ‐density mapping system was selectively employed over a 1‐year period for procedures involving noncavotricuspid isthmus‐dependent‐IART. A global activation histogram (GAH) was assessed for the ability to predict ablation targets. Procedural characteristics were ...
