'Absent' pulmonary valve with intact ventricular septum mimicking tricuspid valve atresia: Prenatal diagnosis and postnatal course.

J Obstet Gynaecol Res 2019 Jan 17. Epub 2019 Jan 17.

Pediatric Cardiology, Tuscany Region-National Centre for Research Foundation, Ospedale del Cuore, Massa, Italy.

Absent pulmonary valve syndrome is a rare congenital heart disease characterized by absent or rudimentary pulmonary valve leaflets and hypoplastic pulmonary annulus. The most common variant, associated with tetralogy of Fallot, implies dilatation of pulmonary branches and usually absent ductus arteriosus. Rarely, absent pulmonary valve occurs with intact ventricular septum: pulmonary branches are normally sized or mildly dilated and ductus arteriosus is usually patent. Read More

Recycling of the Pulmonary Autograft During Reverse Ross Operation: From Pulmonary Valve to Neoaortic Valve and Back.

World J Pediatr Congenit Heart Surg 2019 Jan 16:2150135118798584. Epub 2019 Jan 16.

1 Department of Congenital Cardiovascular Surgery, University Children's Hospital Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland.

The Ross operation is the operation of choice for children and young adults who require aortic valve replacement. Although the allograft does not require anticoagulation and has a superior hemodynamic profile compared to other valve substitutes, concerns regarding allograft and autograft longevity have risen in the last decade. We present a case illustrating an alternative operative technique for patients with failed Ross procedure in which the autograft is recycled in order to avoid a two-allograft replacement. Read More

The quadricuspid pulmonary valve is a relatively common congenital anomaly which is rarely complicated clinically and also tends to be under-diagnosed. The following case report shows a 62-year-old man with exertional dyspnea due to quadricuspid pulmonary valve stenosis that was diagnosed by using electrocardiography-gated multiple detector computed tomography. He was then treated effectively by transcatheter balloon pulmonary valvuloplasty using an Inoue balloon catheter. Read More

Characterization of a reversible thermally-actuated polymer-valve: A potential dynamic treatment for congenital diaphragmatic hernia.

PLoS One 2018 27;13(12):e0209855. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Electrical and Electronics Systems Research Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Oak Ridge, Tennessee, United States of America.

Background: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a fetal defect comprising an incomplete diaphragm and the herniation of abdominal organs into the chest cavity that interfere with fetal pulmonary development. Though the most promising treatment for CDH is via interventional fetoscopic tracheal occlusion (TO) surgery in-utero, it has produced mixed results due to the static nature of the inserted occlusion. We hypothesize that a suitable noninvasively-actuatable, cyclic-release tracheal occlusion device can be developed to enable dynamic tracheal occlusion (dTO) implementation. Read More

Percutaneous Pulmonary Valve Implantation; current status and future perspectives.

Curr Cardiol Rev 2018 Dec 23. Epub 2018 Dec 23.

Department of Cardiology Division Heart and Lungs University Medical Center Utrecht Room E.01.207 3508 GA Utrecht. Netherlands.

Patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) with right ventricle outflow tract (RVOT) dysfunction need sequential pulmonary valve replacements throughout their life in the majority of cases. Since their introduction in 2000, the number of percutaneous pulmonary valve implantations (PPVI) has grown and reached over 10,000 procedures worldwide. Overall, PPVI has been proven safe and effective, but some anatomical variations can limit procedural success. Read More
