Conclusions:Based on the successful outcomes in the 2 patients, a trial of octreotide may be considered in pediatric patients who present with gastrointestinal bleeding secondary to AD. Objectives: Angiodysplasia (AD) is a relatively uncommon cause of gastrointestinal bleeding in children and may be seen in right heart failure. Octreotide has been used successfully in adult patients with gastrointestinal bleeding due to ADs. Methods: We describe 2 patients who had congenital heart disease with right heart failure and gastrointestinal bleeding from AD. Results: AD lesions were documented on traditional endoscopy a...

Juice is the health trend that just won’t go away. There’s a juicing shop on practically every city block, and everyone from your Spin instructor to your mother downs glasses of it daily.

In a paper published last winter in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, experts scrutinized several nutrition-hyped foods&md...

Areport released this morning by the National Academy of Sciences confirms that despite the demonization of vaping by many anti-tobacco groups and health departments, use of these products is much safer than smoking, and there are no known long-term health effects associated with vaping.This does not mean, of course, that vaping is safe. It just means that we don't know what the long-term effects may be. But it is important to stress that at this time, we don't know of any long-term adverse health effects.The report also concludes that the " second-hand " aerosol produced by vaping is safer than secondhand tobacc...

(University of Washington Health Sciences/UW Medicine) Infants born prematurely are known to have a higher risk of developing heart disease later in life. Now, a study led by researchers at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle shows that, in preterm animal models, inflammation due to infection can disrupt the activity of genes that are crucial for normal development of the heart. The findings point to the importance of developing better ways to prevent or therapeutically target inflammation in the fetus to reduce long-term health problems.

ConclusionsISF can be induced safely in a variety of vascular beds using high‐pressure balloons both longitudinally or through side cells. Longitudinal ISF only rarely requires immediate placement of a new stent; however, late restenosis may occur, requiring re‐stenting.

ConclusionsPCA access for pediatric interventional catheterization appears to be safe with a very low rate of mild stenosis, and very few complications. Follow‐up outcomes in our series are excellent, with a CA patency rate of 100%, even after multiple procedures. Mild CA stenosis was not associated with patient size or sheath introducer caliber. While the acute results from percutaneous CA catheterization have proven safe in recent literature, longer‐term outcomes remain unreported. At our institution, the outcomes following percutaneous carotid access are associated with an excellent patency rate of 100%, even after ...
