IMPORTANCE: The relationship of prenatal diagnosis of critical congenital heart disease (CHD) with brain injury and brain development is unknown. Given limited improvement of CHD outcomes with prenatal diagnosis, the effect of prenatal diagnosis on brain health may reveal additional benefits. OBJECTIVE: To compare the prevalence of preoperative and postoperative brain injury and the trajectory of brain development in neonates with prenatal vs postnatal diagnosis of CHD...

AIM: The optimal treatment for foetal tachyarrhythmia remains controversial, and this study aimed to fill this gap in the knowledge. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all cases of foetal tachyarrhythmia diagnosed at two tertiary foetal cardiology centres in Sweden from 1990 to 2012. RESULTS: Of the 153 cases, 28% had atrial flutter (AF), 63% had atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia (AVRT) and 9% had other mechanisms. Hydrops was present in 45, less frequently in AF than in AVRT...

BACKGROUND: Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor therapy improves clinical outcome and ventricular function in adults with heart failure. Infants with single-ventricle physiology have poor growth and are at risk for abnormalities in ventricular systolic and diastolic function. The ability of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor therapy to preserve ventricular function and improve somatic growth and outcomes in these infants is unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS: The Pediatric Heart Network conducted a double-blind trial involving 230 infants with single-ventricle physiology randomized to receive enalapril (target dose 0...
