BACKGROUND: Due to the great advances in the care of patients with congenital heart disease (CHD), mortality has decreased significantly over the last decades. Nonetheless, mortality for adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD) is still higher than for the general population. An analysis regarding causes of death in a nationwide contemporary cohort of ACHD is lacking. METHODS: A well-characterized cohort of the German National Register for Congenital Heart Defects was screened for patients over the age of 18 years who died between January 2001 and January 2015...

BACKGROUND: Systematic follow-up is currently not recommended for patients with simple congenital heart disease; however, only a few data exist on the long-term prognosis of simple congenital heart disease. METHODS AND RESULTS: We undertook a nationwide follow-up study of a cohort of 1241 simple congenital heart disease patients, diagnosed from 1963 through 1973, in otherwise healthy children and alive at 15 years of age. We identified 10 age- and sex-matched general population controls per patient...

The ideal age to perform the Fontan procedure is still unknown. The aim of this study is to determine outcomes after Fontan surgery delayed to adolescence and adulthood in Australia and New Zealand. Patients who had undergone a Fontan procedure at 15 years of age or older were identified in the 1133 patients registered in the Australia and New Zealand Fontan Registry until December 2012. A total of 45 patients underwent the following Fontan procedure at a median age of 18.3 years (16-21 years): 24 atriopulmonary connections, 10 lateral tunnel, and 11 extracardiac conduits...

DESCRIPTION: In December 2014, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) approved a joint clinical practice guideline for the management of dyslipidemia for cardiovascular disease risk reduction in adults. This synopsis summarizes the major recommendations. METHODS: On 30 September 2013, the VA/DoD Evidence-Based Practice Work Group convened a joint VA/DoD guideline development effort that included clinical stakeholders and conformed to the Institute of Medicine's tenets for trustworthy clinical practice guidelines...

Unlike for septic shock, there are no specific international recommendations regarding the management of cardiogenic shock (CS) in critically ill patients. We present herein recommendations for the management of cardiogenic shock in adults, developed with the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) system by an expert group of the French-Language Society of Intensive Care (Société de Réanimation de Langue Française (SRLF)), with the participation the French Society of Anesthesia and Intensive Care (SFAR), the French Cardiology Society (SFC), the French Emergency Medicine Society (SFMU), and the French Society of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery (SFCTCV)...

BACKGROUND: Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) may present with ventricular arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death (SCD) even in the absence of hemodynamic impairment. The structural basis of ventricular electric instability remains elusive. METHODS AND RESULTS: The cardiac pathology registry of 650 young adults (≤40 years of age) with SCD was reviewed, and cases with MVP as the only cause of SCD were re-examined. Forty-three patients with MVP (26 females; age range, 19-40 years; median, 32 years) were identified (7% of all SCD, 13% of women)...

BACKGROUND: Patients with cyanotic congenital heart disease (CCHD) have a high prevalence of thrombosis, the most frequently described locations being the cerebral and pulmonary vessels. The reported prevalence of both cerebral infarction and pulmonary thrombosis has been highly variable. The aim of this study was to examine the prevalence of both cerebral and pulmonary thrombosis in CCHD according to medical history and imaging. In addition, the role of known erythrocytosis and haemostatic abnormalities as risk factors was evaluated...
