Prenatal detection of critical cardiac outflow tract anomalies remains suboptimal despite revised obstetrical imaging guidelines.

Congenit Heart Dis 2018 Sep 18;13(5):748-756. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

Division of Pediatric Cardiology, Department of Pediatrics, Rady Children's Hospital, University of California, San Diego, California.

Background: Fetal echocardiography can accurately diagnose critical congenital heart disease prenatally, but relies on referrals from abnormalities identified on routine obstetrical ultrasounds. Critical congenital heart disease that is frequently missed due to inadequate outflow tract imaging includes anomalies such as truncus arteriosus, double outlet right ventricle, transposition of the great arteries, tetralogy of Fallot, pulmonary stenosis, and aortic stenosis.

Objective: This study evaluated the prenatal detection rate of critical outflow tract anomalies in a single urban pediatric hospital before and after "AIUM Practice Guideline for the Performance of Obstetric Ultrasound Examinations," which incorporated outflow tract imaging. Read More

Modified Repair of Type I and II Truncus Arteriosus Limits Early Right Ventricular Outflow Tract Reoperation.

Semin Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2018 8;30(2):199-204. Epub 2018 Feb 8.

Department of Surgery, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York; Department of Pediatrics, University of Rochester Medical Center, Rochester, New York; Pediatric Cardiac Consortium of Upstate New York. Electronic address:

Repair of truncus arteriosus often requires early right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) reoperation. Using a modified repair, the branch pulmonary arteries are left in situ, which may avoid earlier RVOT reoperation. We hypothesized that our modified repair for type I and II truncus arteriosus would extend the time to RVOT reoperation. Read More

Prenatal diagnosis of the fetal common arterial trunk. A case series.

Med Ultrason 2018 Feb;1(1):100-104

Gynecology Department, University of Medicine and Pharmacy Victor Babeș Timișoara, Romania.

Fetal common arterial trunk is an anomaly represented by a unique arterial trunk that arouses from the base of the heart, and gives birth to systemic branches, both pulmonary and coronary, frequently associated with a ventricular septal defect (VSD) and has a poor prognosis. We present a series of 17 cases diagnosed in our tertiary center with different types of fetal common arterial trunk, its associated disorders, the evolution of the pregnancies, and of the neonates. We concluded that our cases support the fact that a complete intrauterine evaluation of each case of the common arterial trunk is impossible. Read More

An Unusual Combination of Truncus Arteriosus, Interrupted Aortic Arch, and Hypoplastic Left Ventricle.

World J Pediatr Congenit Heart Surg 2018 11 19;9(6):714-717. Epub 2017 Sep 19.

1 Heart Centre for Children, The Children's Hospital at Westmead, Westmead, New South Wales, Australia.

Truncus arteriosus (common arterial trunk) is known to be associated with interrupted aortic arch in 10% to 15% of cases. However, the association of either of these lesions with a hypoplastic left ventricle is rare. The combination of all three of these lesions along with an intact interventricular septum is virtually unknown with only two cases reported in the literature. Read More

Prenatal screening of fetal ventriculoarterial connections: benefits of 4D technique in fetal heart imaging.

Cardiovasc Ultrasound 2017 Jun 23;15(1):17. Epub 2017 Jun 23.

Department of Sonography, Shengjing Hospital of China Medical University, Heping District, Shenyang, China.

Background: Identification of prenatal ventriculoarterial connections in fetuses with conotruncal anomalies (CTA) remains one of the greatest challenges for sonographers performing screening examinations. Herein, we propose a novel protocol of 4D volume analysis that identifies ventriculoarterial connections and evaluate its clinical utility in routine screenings.

Methods: Twenty-nine cases of transposition of the great arteries (TGA), 22 cases of double-outlet right ventricle (DORV), 36 cases of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), 14 cases of truncus arteriosus (TCA), and randomly selected 70 normal fetuses were reviewed in this study. Read More

Cardiac neural crest ablation results in early endocardial cushion and hemodynamic flow abnormalities.

Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol 2016 11 19;311(5):H1150-H1159. Epub 2016 Aug 19.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio; and

Cardiac neural crest cell (CNCC) ablation creates congenital heart defects (CHDs) that resemble those observed in many syndromes with craniofacial and cardiac consequences. The loss of CNCCs causes a variety of great vessel defects, including persistent truncus arteriosus and double-outlet right ventricle. However, because of the lack of quantitative volumetric measurements, less severe defects, such as great vessel size changes and valve defects, have not been assessed. Read More

Senior Consultant, Department of Pediatric Cardiology, Narayana Health, Narayana Hrudayalaya , Bengaluru, Karnataka, India .

From the stand point of radiographic analysis most of the complex cyanotic congenital heart diseases (CHD), can be divided into those associated with decreased or increased pulmonary vascularity. Combination of a specific cardiac configuration and status of lung vasculature in a clinical context allows plain film diagnosis to be predicted in some CHD. Correlation of the position of the cardiac apex in relation to the visceral situs is an important information that can be obtained from the plain film. Read More

Department of Cardiac Radiology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, 110029, India.

Persistent truncus arteriosus is a rare congenital cardiac disease with variable presentation. The exact preoperative diagnosis and delineation of anatomy are very important because the optimal timing and procedure for truncus arteriosus repair are decided on the basis of the morphological characteristics. Moreover, the presence of associated anomalies influences the surgical outcome and mortality in these patients. Read More

Cardiac-gated computed tomography angiography in three alpacas with complex congenital heart disease.

J Vet Cardiol 2016 Mar 21;18(1):88-98. Epub 2016 Jan 21.

Department of Biomedical Sciences, College of Veterinary Medicine, Oregon State University, Magruder Hall, Corvallis, OR 97331, USA.

Background: The prevalence of congenital heart disease is higher in camelids than in other domestic species and complex defects, often involving the great vessels, are more frequently encountered in llamas and alpacas than in other species. Some of these complex defects can be difficult to accurately characterize via echocardiography, the most commonly used diagnostic imaging technique to evaluate the heart in veterinary patients. Contrast-enhanced, electrocardiogram (ECG)-gated computed tomography (CT) has proven utility for the evaluation of human patients with certain congenital heart defects, including those with conotruncal septation defects and other abnormalities involving the formation of the great vessels.

Echocardiographic evaluation of coronary arteries in congenital heart disease.

Cardiol Young 2015 Dec;25(8):1504-11

John Hopkins All Children's Heart Institute,All Children's Hospital,,St Petersburg,Florida,United States of America.

Among populations of patients with the congenital heart disease, there is considerable diversity in the anatomy of the coronary arteries. Understanding these anatomical differences is vitally important in directing interventions and surgical repair. In this report, the authors describe the echocardiographic evaluation of the variants of coronary artery anatomy in the following lesions: transposition of the great arteries, congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries, double-inlet left ventricle, common arterial trunk, tetralogy of Fallot, and double-outlet right ventricle.

Unrepaired persistent truncus arteriosus in a 38-year-old woman with an uneventful pregnancy.

Cardiovasc J Afr 2015 Jul 23;26(4):e6-8. Epub 2015 Jul 23.

Cardiology Department, Hedi Chaker Hospital, Sfax, Tunisia.

Persistent truncus arteriosus (PTA) is a rare conotruncal defect, defined as a single arterial vessel arising from the heart, which gives origin to the systemic, pulmonary and coronary circulations. It has an extremely poor prognosis and carries a high mortality rate during the early years of life unless surgically repaired. A few known cases have been reported of patients reaching maturity, and exceptionally, patients suffering from this disease having lived into the fourth decade. Read More

3D MDCT angiography for the preoperative assessment of truncus arteriosus.

Clin Imaging 2015 Nov-Dec;39(6):938-44. Epub 2015 Jul 19.

Department of Pediatrics, Sejong General Hospital, Bucheon, Gyeonggi, Republic of Korea.

Truncus arteriosus is an uncommon conotruncal anomaly, which is amenable to surgical correction. The systemic, pulmonary, and coronary circulations originate from a single arterial vessel that arises from the ventricular part of the heart and overrides the ventricular septum. The value of multidetector computed tomography with three-dimensional postprocessing lies in the detailed assessment of the presence or absence of the pulmonary arteries, including the number, origin, and branching patterns of major aortopulmonary collateral arteries, and extracardiac abnormalities such as aortic arch interruption.
