Metabolic syndrome and coronary artery disease in adults with congenital heart disease.

Koichiro Niwa

Cardiovasc Diagn Ther 2021 Apr;11(2):563-576

Department of Cardiology, Cardiovascular Center, St Luke's International Hospital, Tokyo 104-8560, Japan.

In adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD), conditions acquired with aging, such as metabolic syndrome, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and obesity, can negatively influence the original cardiovascular disease. Metabolic syndrome has a higher prevalence in ACHD than in the general population. In contrast, coronary artery disease shows a similar prevalence in adults with acyanotic CHD and the general population, while adults with cyanotic CHD, even after repair, have an even lower incidence of coronary artery disease than the general population/adults with acyanotic CHD.

Socioeconomic disparities in the management of coronary heart disease in 438 general practices in Australia.

Eur J Prev Cardiol 2021 May;28(4):400-407

The George Institute for Global Health, University of New South Wales, Australia.

Background: This population-based cross-stional and panel study investigated disparities in the management of coronary heart disease (CHD) by level of socioeconomic status.

Pulmonary infection after cardiopulmonary bypass surgery in children: a risk estimation model in China.

J Cardiothorac Surg 2021 Apr 7;16(1):71. Epub 2021 Apr 7.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Children's Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, No.136, Zhongshan 2nd Road, Yuzhong Dis, Chongqing, 400014, P.R. China.

Eligibility for subcutaneous implantable cardioverter-defibrillator in adults with congenital heart disease.

ESC Heart Fail 2021 Apr 3;8(2):1502-1508. Epub 2021 Feb 3.

Hannover Heart Rhythm Center, Department of Cardiology and Angiology, Hannover Medical School, Carl-Neuberg-Str. 1, Hannover, D-30625, Germany.

Aims: Patients with adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) carry an increased risk for sudden cardiac death. Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) therapy may be challenging in these patients due to anatomical barriers, repeated cardiac surgery, or complicated transvenous access. Thus, the subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) can be a promising alternative in this patient population. Read More

Clinical score to detect congenital heart defects: Concept of second screening.

Ann Pediatr Cardiol 2020 Oct-Dec;13(4):281-288. Epub 2020 Sep 1.

Department of Pediatrics, Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and Hospital, Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Introduction: Neonatal screening for congenital heart defects at birth can miss some heart defects, sometimes few critical ones, and the scenario is even worse in those neonates who had never undergone a neonatal checkup (home deliveries). Immunization clinic can serve as a unique opportunity as the second checkpoint for the screening of the children. A history- and examination-based test can serve as an effective tool to screen out children with heart defects. Read More
