Ann Thorac Surg 2018 Oct 25. Epub 2018 Oct 25.

Mt. Fuji Shizuoka Children's Hospital Department of Cardiovascular Surgery.

An infant boy with 21 trisomy was diagnosed with complete atrioventricular septal defect (CAVSD)-Rastelli type A with parachute left atrioventricular valve and absent left mural leaflet. Biventricular repair was difficult in infancy because the left ventricular volume and left atrioventricular valve annulus were too small. After two pulmonary artery bandings, the left atrioventricular valve annulus increased to 85% of normal mitral valve, and the left ventricular end-diastolic volume increased to 98% of normal.

Pulmonary Vascular Resistance Index: Getting the Units Right and Why it Matters.

Clin Cardiol 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California.

Pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) and pulmonary vascular resistance index (PVRI) are key variables in a broad range of contexts, including prediction of outcomes in heart and liver transplantation, determining candidacy for closure of atrial or ventricular septal defects, and guiding treatment of pulmonary hypertension. Significant variability exists among the units used to report PVRI in current literature, making the interpretation of data and translation into clinical practice difficult. Here we will review the measurement and derivation of PVR and PVRI and demonstrate the extent of confusion in the literature. Read More

Myocardial Notch1-Rbpj deletion does not affect NOTCH signaling, heart development or function.

PLoS One 2018 31;13(12):e0203100. Epub 2018 Dec 31.

Intercellular Signaling in Cardiovascular Development & Disease Laboratory, Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares Carlos III (CNIC), Madrid, SPAIN.

During vertebrate cardiac development NOTCH signaling activity in the endocardium is essential for the crosstalk between endocardium and myocardium that initiates ventricular trabeculation and valve primordium formation. This crosstalk leads later to the maturation and compaction of the ventricular chambers and the morphogenesis of the cardiac valves, and its alteration may lead to disease. Although endocardial NOTCH signaling has been shown to be crucial for heart development, its physiological role in the myocardium has not been clearly established. Read More

Tetralogy of Fallot: Everything You Wanted to Know but Were Afraid to Ask.

Paediatr Anaesth 2018 Dec 27. Epub 2018 Dec 27.

Department of Surgery, Stanford University, Palo Alto, USA.

Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is the most common form of congenital cyanotic heart disease, occurring in approximately 4 to 5 per 10,0000 live births, and represents 7-10% of all congenital heart defects (1,2). Although TOF is often thought of in terms of the tetrad of anomalies-pulmonary stenosis, ventricular septal defect (VSD), aorta overriding the ventricular septum, and right ventricular hypertrophy-it has been proposed that all of these features are the result of anterior malalignment of the infundibular septum with the muscular septum (3,4). There are several variants of TOF as well, which manifest other abnormal features and are discussed in the following review. Read More

Percutaneous closure of perimembranous ventricular septal defects utilizing almost ideal Amplatzer Duct Occluder II: Why limitation in sizes?

Congenit Heart Dis 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Pediatric Heart Center of Hessen, Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

Aim: The purpose of this study is to describe the special aspects of perimembranous ventricular septal defects (pmVSD) closure by utilizing Amplatzer Duct Occluder II (ADO II) devices with a rational request for bigger ADO-II sizes, based on our experience in transcatheter device closure of pmVSD.

Methods And Results: At our institution, placement of an ADO II device was used in 15 patients with pmVSD; the patients' age ranged between 6 months and 20 years. The indications for closure were CHF (n = 4), hemodynamically significant shunt (n = 7), tricuspid regurgitation (n = 3), and high risk for infective endocarditis (n = 2), respectively. Read More

J Cardiothorac Surg 2018 Dec 12;13(1):125. Epub 2018 Dec 12.

Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, West China Hospital, Sichuan University, Guoxuexiang 37th, 610041, Chengdu, Sichuan, People's Republic of China.

Background: Minimally invasive approaches such as perventricular closure of ventricular septal defects (VSD) have been applied for the surgical correction of congenital heart defects in order to avoid disadvantages related to median sternotomy with a cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). However, reports remain scarce regarding combined perventricular closure of VSD and atrial septal defects (ASD) via minimally invasive approaches, such as lower ministernotomy.

Results: The authors have operated on 5 patients who were diagnosed with VSD in association with ASD, successfully realizing perventricular closure via lower ministernotomy. Read More

A new anatomic approach of the ventricular septal defect in the interruption of the aortic arch.

J Anat 2019 Feb 7;234(2):193-200. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Paediatric Cardiology, Centre de Référence Malformations Cardiaques Congénitales Complexes - M3C, Necker Hospital for Sick Children, Assistance Publique des Hôpitaux de Paris, Paris, France.

The aim of this study was to analyse the anatomy of the ventricular septal defect (VSD) in heart specimens with interruption of the aortic arch (IAA) in order to explore the hypothesis of different embryologic mechanisms for the different anatomic types of IAA. We examined 42 human heart specimens, 25 with IAA as the main disease with concordant atrioventricular and ventriculo-arterial connections and two distinct great arteries, and 17 hearts with IAA associated with other malformations [six common arterial trunk (CAT), five double-outlet right ventricle (DORV), three transposition of the great arteries (TGA), three atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD)]. The interruption was classified according to Celoria and Patton. Read More

Atrial Septal Defects Accelerate Pulmonary Hypertension Diagnoses in Premature Infants.

Front Pediatr 2018 23;6:342. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Department of Pediatrics, Emory University, Atlanta, GA, United States.

Between 4 and 16% of extremely premature infants have late pulmonary hypertension (PH) (onset >30 days of life), and infants with PH have a higher risk of tracheostomy and death. Atrial septal defects (ASD) increase pulmonary blood flow and may promote PH in at-risk infants. The objective of this study was to determine if infants with ASD develop PH sooner than those without ASD. Read More
