When 'blue babies' grow up: What you need to know about tetralogy of Fallot.
(Cleve Clin J Med, 2010-11)
Most babies born with tetralogy of Fallot undergo corrective surgery and survive to adulthood. However, as they get older they are prone to a number of long-term problems, and they often do not receive expert-level follow-up ...
Modified INOvent for delivery of inhaled nitric oxide during cardiac MRI.
(Magn Reson Imaging, 2011-10)
BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of delivering NO through a modified system to allow clearance of the magnetic field and thus compatibility with cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR). Nitric oxide ...
Tricuspid regurgitation and right ventricular function after mitral valve surgery with or without concomitant tricuspid valve procedure.
(J Thorac Cardiovasc Surg, 2013-11)
OBJECTIVES: To study the effect of mitral valve repair with or without concomitant tricuspid valve repair on functional tricuspid regurgitation and right ventricular function. METHODS: From 2001 to 2007, 1833 patients with ...
Comparison of long-term postoperative sequelae in patients with tetralogy of Fallot versus isolated pulmonic stenosis.
(Am J Cardiol, 2014-07-15)
Patients with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) after complete repair and pulmonic stenosis (PS) after surgical valvotomy often develop significant pulmonic regurgitation (PR) that eventually requires valve replacement. Although ...
Pulmonary hypertension and elevated transpulmonary gradient in patients with mitral stenosis.
(J Heart Valve Dis, 2010-11)
BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Pulmonary hypertension frequently complicates mitral stenosis, with a subset of these patients exhibiting pressures well in excess of their mitral valve hemodynamics. The prevalence of this ...
Provoked exercise desaturation in patent foramen ovale and impact of percutaneous closure.
(JACC Cardiovasc Interv, 2012-04)
OBJECTIVES: This study was designed to assess the prevalence of provoked exercise desaturation (PED) in patients with patent foramen ovale (PFO) referred for cardiovascular evaluation and to evaluate the impact of PFO closure. ...
