Preoperative coupling between right ventricle and pulmonary vasculature is an important determinant of residual symptoms after the closure of atrial septal defect
In this study, 120 adult patients with ASD and 39 controls were investigated. As an index of RV myocardial deformation, RV global longitudinal strain (RV-GLS) was evaluated. The degree of coupling between RV and pulmonary artery (PA) was quantified by the tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion (TAPSE) divided by the PA systolic pressure (PASP).ResultsCompared to controls, baseline RV-GLS was significantly greater ( − 27 ± 7 vs. − 23 ± 5%,P = 0.02) and TAPSE/PASP ratio was severely impaired (0.8 ± 0.3 vs. 2.1 &p...

Restriction of atrial septal defect leads to growth of hypoplastic ventricle in patients with borderline right or left heart
This study evaluated the impact of ASD restriction on ventricular growth and function. We retrospectively reviewed patients with borderline ventricular hypoplasia and VSDs who underwent a staged ventricular recruitment (SVR) procedure from 2012 to June 2019.

Mending hearts: A further strategy to improve cardiac donors availability
AbstractPatients listed for heart transplantation are increasing annually worldwide, but the limited number of available donor hearts restricts this treatment to a small fraction of potential recipients. Attempts have, therefore, been made to expand the donor pool by recruiting donors who may not satisfy the standard criteria for organ donation. We reviewed our early experience by using three donor hearts which were successfully transplanted either after correction or not of pre ‐existing defects (Case #1: Coronary fistula; Case #2: Takayasu syndrome; Case #3: Percutaneously repaired atrial septal defect), demonstrating ...

Iatrogenic closure of coronary sinus: an unforseen complication of surgical atrial septal defect closure
We report a case of 39-year-old male presented with hemoptysis following an ASD closure 21  years prior and diagnosed to have iatrogenic closure of the coronary sinus at the time of surgical ASD closure. To our best knowledge, this is the first case of such complication reported in the literature. (Source: Indian Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery)

We report on a rare case of a newborn originally diagnosed with an atrial septal defect, a ventricular septal defect, and pulmonary arterial hypertension, who underwent complete repair.

We reviewed articles on heat and congenital anomalies from PubMed and Web of Science, screening 14,880 titles and abstracts in duplicate for articles on environmental heat exposure during pregnancy and congenital anomalies. Thirteen studies were included. Most studies were in North America (8) or the Middle East (3).

Use of cribriform amplatzer septal occluder in the pediatric population: Feasibility, safety, and technical considerations
Conclusions : Cribriform ASO can be used safely and effectively in closing F-ASDs in children. Deployment of the device through a small central hole allows covering maximum fenestrations and gives more stability to the device. Residual shunts, although not infrequent, are insignificant.

Epidemiological Research of Microtia Combined With Congenital Heart Disease
Conclusions: The occurrence of CHD in microtia patients was higher than that in the general population. The relationship between them was explored mainly from the etiological perspective. Microtia and CHD were often combined in syndromes such as Goldenhar syndrome, 22q11 deletion syndrome, and CHARGE syndrome. Absence of genes or abnormal embryo development associated with these syndromes leads to the occurrence of both. (Source: Journal of Craniofacial Surgery)

Diagnosing Atrial Septal Defect from Electrocardiogram with Deep Learning
AbstractThe heart murmur associated with atrial septal defects is often faint and can thus only be detected by chance. Although electrocardiogram examination can prompt diagnoses, identification of specific findings remains a major challenge. We demonstrate improved diagnostic accuracy realized by incorporating a proposed deep learning model, comprising a convolutional neural network (CNN) and long short-term memory (LSTM), with electrocardiograms. This retrospective observational study included 1192 electrocardiograms of 728 participants from January 1, 2000, to December 31, 2017, at Tokyo Women's Medical University Hospi...

Update On Shunt Closure In Neonates And Infants
Expert Rev Cardiovasc Ther. 2021 Apr 24. doi: 10.1080/14779072.2021.1922079. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTCardiac defects that result in shunting are the most common types of congenital heart anomalies. Although these lesions can be simple, they can cause significant hemodynamic changes and can be challenging to manage in neonates and infants. Over the recent decades, the development of new transcatheter techniques and devices has made it safe and feasible to manage such defects when indicated, even in the smallest of patients. Understanding these interventional procedures is essential in order to manage those patients.Ar...

A Case of Giant Right Atrium Diverticulum with Atrial Septal Defect
We present a previously unreported case of giant right atrium diverticulum (153 × 109 mm) in a 17-year-old female patient. Echocardiographic examination also showed an atrial septal defect (11 mm). Considering the risk of right atrium rupture, we performed femoral arteriovenous cannulation first, followed by median thoracotomy. The defect was repaired with an autologous pericardial patch. The patient recovered well after the operation, and this case is referential for surgical treatment of giant right atrium diverticulum.PMID:33891537 | DOI:10.1532/hsf.3645 (Source: The Heart Surgery Forum)
