Awareness assessment for parents of children with congenital heart diseases regarding fetal echocardiography.
CONCLUSION: Parents of children with CHD have significant knowledge gaps regarding Fetal Echocardiography. Our findings suggest that the current parent counseling is inadequate and needs further focus, especially in developing countries, to promote parents` understanding of the prenatal cardiac diagnosis. Data on fetal echocardiography should be clarified at the initial diagnosis of pediatric CHD. PMID: 32779409 [PubMed - in process] (Source: The Turkish Journal of Pediatrics)

Clinical features and treatment of ruptured pulmonary hydatid cyst in children.
CONCLUSION: Rupture of the pulmonary HC is the most common and also the most feared complication. Rupture may be either intrabronchial or intrapleural. Radiologic imaging is diagnostic. Rupture of the pulmonary HC must be considered as an emergent issue. Simple cystotomy amd removal of the laminated membranes are adequate treatment of choice. Meticulous closure of the bronchial openings is mandatory to avoid prolonged air leak. Cappitonage is unnecessary. PMID: 32779410 [PubMed - in process] (Source: The Turkish Journal of Pediatrics)

Coronary artery fistulae and treatment in children.
CONCLUSIONS: Coronary artery fistulae are usually asymptomatic, and medical therapy with long term follow up is the first line treatment. Fistulae that cause hemodynamically significant shunting, chamber enlargement, or visible symptoms should be closed at an early age. This study shows that transcatheter closure is a safe treatment option for CAF that may be performed with high success. Also, it should be known that surgery may be performed effectively with low rates of complications. Because complications can develop in treated and untreated patients of all ages, follow-up should occur during the patient`s lifetime. ...
