Successful treatment of a newborn with acute myocardial infarction on the first day of life.
We present a newborn with severe MI secondary to thrombus formation within the left anterior descending coronary artery. There also proved to be a Factor V Leiden heterozygotic mutation. The patient initially presented with cardiogenic shock. After resuscitation and thrombolytic therapy were adminis...
Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and Pulmonary Veno-occlusive Disease in an Infant.
This report describes an infant with heterotaxy syndrome and severe hypoplasia of the left heart who presented with profound cyanosis at birth despite a large patent ductus arteriosus. Pulmonary venous return was difficult to demonstrate by echocardiography. Angiography showed total anomalous pulmon...
Percutaneous Closure of a Large Unligated Vertical Vein Using the Amplatzer Vascular Plug II After Supracardiac Total Anomalous Pulmonary Ve...
It is well known that the vertical vein (VV) may have to be left open after repair of a total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) in children with preoperative obstruction, whose left heart chambers are small (Cope et al. in Ann Thorac Surg 64:23-29, 3). An unligated VV has been found to r...
Congenital atresia of the left main coronary artery with noncompaction of the ventricular myocardium in an asymptomatic young child.
Congenital atresia of the left main coronary artery (LMCA) is an extremely rare cardiac anomaly, and no cases have been reported from the mainland of China. The diagnosis for the 20-month-old boy in the reported case highlights the essentiality of comprehensive diagnostic measures. To avoid a misdia...
Persistent truncus arteiosus with double aortic arch and mitral stenosis.
This report describes a case involving the rare combination of persistent truncus arteriosus type A2, double aortic arch, and mitral stenosis. At the age of 26 days, the patient underwent division of the right-sided aortic arch with tracheal compression and bilateral pulmonary banding. Fontan comple...
Percutaneous treatment of abdominal coarctation in children using a covered stent.
Coarctation of the abdominal aorta is extremely rare. It generally involves a long segment of the descending aorta and causes uncontrolled and unexplainable hypertension in children. The therapeutic choice is very challenging because acute and chronic complications are reported for both the surgical...
Percutaneous closure of a moderate to large tubular or elongated patent ductus arteriosus in children younger than 3 years: is the ADO II ap...
I device. This study aimed to report the safety and efficacy of the ADO II device in children younger than 3 years with a tubular or elongated PDA and to analyze the possible reasons for residual flow in children with such a PDA. In this study, 17 children younger than 3 years (mean age, 10.3 ± 7 mo...
Symptomatic upper-extremity deep venous thrombosis after pacemaker placement in a pediatric patient: how to treat?
Symptomatic upper-extremity deep venous thrombosis (UEDVT) after pacemaker placement in adults has been reported, but the occurrence of UEDVT in pediatric patients is poorly defined, and no treatment guidelines exist. This report describes a 14-year old girl with a history of complete atrioventricul...
Syndrome of inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone associated with Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor administration.
We describe here a case of SIADH associated with ACEI administration in a 6-year-old boy with restrictive cardiomyopathy. After recovery from acute exacerbation of congestive heart failure by tolvaptan administration, an ACEI (cilazapril) was started to decrease the production of angiotensin II, whi...
Use of Doppler echocardiography to support the decision to discontinue secondary prophylaxis for patients with rheumatic Fever and normal ca...
Secondary prophylaxis remains the safest way to prevent or minimize heart valve damage in patients with rheumatic fever. However, criteria to determine the duration of prophylaxis have not been well established. This study aimed to evaluate the clinical and Doppler echocardiographic profile of patie...
