BACKGROUND: By rerouting the systemic venous return into the pulmonary circulation, the Fontan operation is perhaps the most effective palliative procedure in patients with complex congenital heart disease. The Fontan, however, still comes with several significant complications and morbidities, one of them being postoperative prolonged pleural effusion. In our center from 2017 to 2021, 10% of all our patients who underwent Fontan operation developed prolonged pleural effusion. With this study, we aimed to analyze the preoperative use of sildenafil for 6 months and its role in prolonged pleural effusion after the Fontan operation...

Incontinentia pigmenti (IP) is a rare X-linked dominant neuroectodermal dysplasia affecting almost exclusively females. It is caused by loss-of-function mutations in the inhibitor of kappa light polypeptide gene enhancer in B cells, kinase gamma gene, formerly known as NF-κB essential modulator. The disorder is typically identified by peculiar skin findings that develop throughout the 1st year of life. Approximately one-third of patients has ocular and neurologic abnormalities causing severe disability...

BACKGROUND: Changes in left ventricular (LV) systolic function have not been well described in premature neonates after transcatheter patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) closure. METHODS AND RESULTS: We retrospectively identified all premature neonates < 3 kg who underwent a transcatheter PDA closure at our center between January 1 2015 and January 31, 2021. LV indices before and after closure were extracted and an analysis was performed. Overall, 23 neonates were included with a mean procedural weight of 1894 ± 622 g...

Unilateral absence of pulmonary artery (UAPA) can be either isolated or associated with other congenital cardiac defects. It is a rare congenital lesion with a diverse clinical presentation. We present a case of absent right pulmonary artery and large patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) with severe unilateral pulmonary hypertension. We describe our strategy of staged ductus arteriosus closure in this patient and successful outcome on long term follow up.

BACKGROUND: Individuals with Down syndrome (DS) have a 40%-60% chance of being born with congenital heart disease (CHD). This indicates that CHD in individuals with DS is not solely caused by trisomy 21, and there may be other genetic factors contributing to the development of CHD in these children. A study has identified variants in the specific genes that contribute to the pathogenesis of CHD in children with DS, isolated DS, and the CHD group. Computational studies on these identified variants, which, together with trisomy 21, determine the risk for CHD in DS cases, were limited...

Large vessel stenosis is currently successfully treated with percutaneous stent implantation. Zephyr stent is a cobalt-chromium peripheral stent specifically designed for large-vessel stenting. Its specific "S-" and "C-" shaped flexible polylinks prevent stent foreshortening and recoil. We report our experience of using Zephyr among the pediatric population and their medium-term outcome. The study included a total of 19 patients treated with 21 Zephyr stents. The indications for stenting included coarctation of the aorta (four patients), stenosed pulmonary artery (eight patients), stenosed right ventricular outflow tract (five patients) or conduit (one patient), and percutaneous Fontan (one patient)...

Arterial thoracic outlet syndrome (aTOS) is rarely diagnosed in children. A 15-year-old boy with recent-onset claudication was found to have aTOS on investigation. Bony abnormality other than the cervical rib might also cause aTOS. Enhanced awareness of aTOS as a cause of vascular symptoms in children is warranted.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The pediatric cardiac intensive care unit (PCICU) frequently uses noninvasive ventilation (NIV). There are several reasons for its use, including prophylactic use right after the patient has been extubated. It is also used when patients are experiencing acute respiratory failure due to either cardiac or noncardiac reasons but are still able to maintain their airways. The objective of this study was to understand the spectrum of use of NIV following congenital cardiac surgery and analyze the outcome...

BACKGROUND: The value of prenatal identification of morphology of ductus arteriosus in fetuses with congenital heart defects (CHD) with pulmonary atresia and duct-dependent pulmonary circulation (DDPC) in planning neonatal ductal stenting procedure is untested. The aim of the study is to analyze the utility of three-dimensional/four-dimensional (3D/4D) spatiotemporal image correlation (STIC) fetal echocardiography in delineating the morphology of ductus arteriosus in fetuses with DDPC undergoing neonatal ductal stenting...

In patients with univentricular heart, the Fontan procedure is the final palliation. This is usually staged. A systemic-to-pulmonary artery shunt is performed in the presence of episodes of cyanotic spells in the neonatal period or in some patients in infancy; a bidirectional superior cardiopulmonary anastomosis is preferred early in life. This is followed by the final Fontan palliation on an elective basis later. For an effective bidirectional superior cavopulmonary anastomosis and Fontan palliation, good-sized confluent pulmonary arteries (PAs) are mandatory in addition to favorable hemodynamic data...

Left main coronary artery obstruction due to a congenital supra-aortic membrane is a rare anomaly, but it can have serious consequences, including significant myocardial ischemia that may result in impaired ventricular function or even sudden death. Therefore, early diagnosis and treatment of this condition are crucial for improving patient outcomes. We present, in this report, a patient with intermittent obstruction of the left coronary arteries caused by a congenital ostial membrane diagnosed in adulthood that resulted in myocardial ischemia...

Anomalous left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a reversible cause of left ventricular (LV) dysfunction in infants. The LV function is expected to improve serially and return to normal by 1 year after surgical repair. The pattern of improvement in LV function has not been serially analyzed after ALCAPA repair. We report our preliminary experience with serial assessment of LV function in infants undergoing ALCAPA repair utilizing speckle tracking echocardiography.

BACKGROUND: Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) patch is commonly used during surgical closure for atrial septal defect (ASD) and ventricular septal defect (VSD). However, this patch has several limitations such as its inability to grow or remodel, especially in children and young adults. To tackle these limitations, we have tried to use fibronectin and human adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hAMSCs) in the PTFE patch. OBJECTIVE: To understand the impact of fibronectin to enhance hAMSCs cell-to-cell adherence and cell-to-patch surface attachment into PTFE patches used in the surgical closure of ASD or VSD...

The major challenges for pediatric cardiac nursing in India include inadequacies in their levels of education and lack of recognition of their vital role in the health-care system. The aim of this study was to understand the impact of the leadership educational initiatives on pediatric cardiac nursing taken by Children's HeartLink and the Pediatric Cardiac Society of India. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with eight pediatric cardiac nurse leaders from different Indian hospitals. A review of interviews from a previous study and an extensive literature review provided further foundational data on two major themes...

INTRODUCTION AND AIMS: Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is an important cause of heart failure (HF) among children. Research on pediatric DCM remains surprisingly scarce. The primary objective of the study was to evaluate the clinical profile and outcomes of pediatric DCM and the secondary objective was to study the predictors of outcome. METHODS AND RESULTS: We enrolled all patients with cardiomyopathy who presented to us between 1990 and 2020 and were younger than 18 years...
