Incidental finding of pulmonary arterial sling during patent ductus arteriosus surgery in a patient with Mowat-Wilson syndrome.

Cardiol Young 2018 Aug 29;28(8):1074-1076. Epub 2018 Jun 29.

3Pediatric Interventional Cardiology Department,Fundación Cardioinfantil,Bogotá,Colombia.

Mowat-Wilson syndrome is a genetic condition due to a mutation in the ZEB2 gene; it affects many systems including the cardiovascular system. The pulmonary arterial sling originates from a failure of development of the proximal portion of the left sixth aortic arch, resulting in an anomalous left pulmonary artery origin from the posterior wall of the right pulmonary artery and the left pulmonary artery crossing to the left lung between the trachea and the oesophagus. We present a 4-month-old infant with Mowat-Wilson syndrome and left pulmonary arterial sling, and discuss the association of these two rare conditions. Read More

Semin Fetal Neonatal Med 2018 08 27;23(4):239-244. Epub 2018 Apr 27.

Department of Neonatology, Wilhelmina Children's Hospital, University Medical Center, Utrecht, The Netherlands.

Assessment and management of a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in premature infants remains problematic. The more immature the infant, the more likely a PDA is to be present, due to lower spontaneous PDA closure rates. Clinicians now recognize that not all PDAs require treatment and that selection of the group of infants with a more hemodynamically relevant PDA, often manifesting as an increasing systemic-to-pulmonary shunt, is increasingly important.

Interrupted aortic arch (IAA) is a rare form of critical neonatal heart disease in which there is lack of continuity between the ascending aorta and the descending thoracic aorta. In the absence of prenatal diagnosis, patients with IAA present in shock when the patent ductus arteriosus closes. Diagnosis can generally be made by echocardiography, and initiation of prostaglandin E1 infusion allows for adequate lower body perfusion prior to surgical repair. Read More

Hypothesizing that LV pumping would change during transition-adaptation, we analyzed the LV in preterm infants (GA≤32+6), clinically stable or with a hemodynamically significant patent ductus arteriosus (hPDA) by applying a pump model.MethodsPumping was characterized by E (effective arterial elastance, reflecting afterload), E (end-systolic LV elastance, reflecting contractility), E/E coupling ratios, descriptive E:E relations, and E/E graphs.

Prospective observational study on assessing the hemodynamic relevance of patent ductus arteriosus with frequency domain near-infrared spectroscopy.

BMC Pediatr 2018 02 16;18(1):66. Epub 2018 Feb 16.

Department of Neonatology, University Children's Hospital, Tuebingen, Germany.

Background: What constitutes a hemodynamically relevant patent ductus arteriosus (hrPDA) in preterm infants is unclear. Different clinical and echocardiographic parameters are used, but a gold standard definition is lacking. Our objective was to evaluate associations between regional cerebral tissue oxygen saturation (rcStO), fraction of tissue oxygen extraction (rcFtOE) measured by frequency domain near-infrared spectroscopy (fd-NIRS) and their correlation to echocardiographic, Doppler-ultrasound, and clinical parameters in preterm infants with and without a hrPDA.

A novel truncating mutation in FLNA causes periventricular nodular heterotopia, Ehlers-Danlos-like collagenopathy and macrothrombocytopenia.

Brain Dev 2018 Jun 12;40(6):489-492. Epub 2018 Feb 12.

Department of Pediatrics and Neonatology, Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Sciences, Japan. Electronic address:

Introduction: Filamin A (FLNA) is located in Xq28, and encodes the actin binding protein, filamin A. A mutation in FLNA is the most common cause of periventricular nodular heterotopia (PVNH), but a clear phenotype-genotype correlation has not been established. Indeed, some patients with a FLNA mutation have recently been shown to additionally have Ehlers-Danlos-like collagenopathy or macrothrombocytopenia. Read More
