Does value vary by center surgical volume for neonates with truncus arteriosus? A multicenter study.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Truncus arteriosus is a congenital heart defect with high resource utilization, cost and mortality. Value assessment (outcome/cost) can improve quality of care and decrease cost. We hypothesize that truncus arteriosus repair at a high-volume center results in better outcomes at lower cost (higher value) compared with a low-volume center. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed a multicenter cohort of neonates undergoing truncus arteriosus repair (2004-2015) using the Pediatric Health Information Systems database. Multivariate quantile, logistic and negative binomial regression models were us...

The Evolving Surgical Burden of Fontan Failure: Insights from a Nationwide Surgical Database.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Fontan failure often requires surgical therapy in the form of Fontan revision or heart transplantation. We sought to characterize national trends in the surgical burden of Fontan failure and identify risk factors for adverse outcomes. METHODS: Fontan patients undergoing Fontan revision or transplant from 1/2010-6/2018 were included. We evaluated baseline characteristics and outcomes and used multivariable logistic regression to identify risk factors for operative mortality and composite mortality/major morbidity. RESULTS: 1135 patients underwent Fontan revision (n=598) or transplant ...

Intra-extra cardiac total cavopulmonary connection for patients with anatomical complexity.
CONCLUSIONS: The clinical outcomes in patients who undergo eTCPC and ieTCPC appear to be excellent, with low mortality and morbidity rates in the mid-term. ieTCPC may a good option for TCPC cases with anatomical complexity such as apico-caval juxtaposition and separated hepatic vein drainage.

Diaphragm Paralysis after Pediatric Cardiac Surgery: An STS Congenital Heart Surgery Database Study.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Previous single-center studies of diaphragmatic paralysis (DP) after pediatric cardiac surgery report incidence of 0.3%-12.8% and associate DP with respiratory complications, prolonged ventilation and length of stay, and mortality. To better define incidence and associations between DP and various procedures and outcomes, we performed a multi-center study. METHODS: The STS-CHSD was queried to identify children who experienced DP after cardiac surgery (2010-2018; 126 centers). Baseline characteristics and postoperative outcomes were compared between patients with and without DP as well as ...

Outcomes of interrupted aortic arch repair in children with biventricular circulation.
Abstract BACKGROUND: To evaluate the outcomes following surgical repair of interrupted aortic arch (IAA), in patients with biventricular physiology. METHODS: We reviewed all children from a single institution (n=177) who had IAA repair between 1978 and 2018. Patients were separated into simple (n=122) and complex (n=55) group based on their concomitant anomalies. RESULTS: Median age at repair was 6 days (range 1-298 days) and median weight was 3.1 kg (range 0.95-5.1 kg). Median follow-up time was 11.5 years (mean 12.6 years, range 0.1-35.9 years). Overall early mortality was 11.9% (21/177) and there were...
