Background: Late complications after Fontan procedure may be due to the absence of pump and pulsatile pulmonary blood flow in this type of palliation. Our aim was to quantify the degree of pulsation by echocardiographic method in patients with extracardiac total cavopulmonary connection (ECTCPC) in comparison with biventricular circulation and few...

Over the past three decades, transcatheter occlusion of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) has evolved to be the procedure of choice. Gianturco and Flipper coils are the most commonly used coils in the United States for closure of small and moderate size PDAs. For larger PDAs, interventionalists in the United States commonly use the Amplatzer Duct Occl...

We examined the effect of avoiding cardiopulmonary bypass on the early outcome variables after fenestrated extracardiac total cavopulmonary connection. Between May 2001 and January 2009, 102 patients with univentricular heart physiology underwent fenestrated extracardiac total cavopulmonary connection. Patients were divided into one of 2 groups: th...
Article
A rare combination of aortopulmonary window and complete atrioventricular septal defect diagnosed in a 2-month-old infant with heterotaxy syndrome is presented. Being aware of this combination of cardiac anomalies before surgical intervention is crucial for perioperative anesthetic technique and preservation of the myocardium.

Background: Closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), ventricular septal defect (VSD) and atrial septal defect (ASD) can be done surgically or by device. This study was designed to compare the total cost of surgical or device closures of PDA, ASD or VSD for Iranian patients. Methods: This is a cross-sectional study, conducted from January 1, 2005...

A case of huge intrapericardial teratoma diagnosed in a 9-month-old infant is presented. Echocardiography and thoracic computed tomography showed a voluminous multicystic intrapericardial mass with pericardial effusion. The tumor was resected surgically. Histopathological examination confirmed the diagnosis of immature teratoma.
Article
The present report describes a male newborn with a pulsatile structure beneath the sternum. Echocardiography showed common atrium, a single ventricle, mitral atresia, double outlet right ventricle, subpulmonary stenosis, small pulmonary artery branches, and a thin walled ventricular diverticulum suggestive of Cantrell's syndrome. The diverticulum w...

... Till now, echocardiographic parameters, including pulsatility index (PI), resistance index (RI) and myocardial performance index (MPI), which are used in human studies to evaluate the cardiac performance, was not recorded in horses with cardiac disorders [22,23]. PI and RI are useful in the measurement of blood flow resistance [24]. ...
... In 1958, Cantrell et al [1] described 5 cases. In 2007, new 150 cases were recorded [5] , and in 2010 the number of cases of Cantrell syndrome described in the literature increased to 250 (most of them in Europe and USA -180) [6] . ...
... The coil is often the chosen strategy if the total ductal length is more than three times the narrowest diameter of the PDA [14]. Others have used minimal ductal diameter less than 1.5-2 mm as an indication for coil implantation, as device implantation in such small PDAs can be challenging [15]. Coils are usually restricted to small Krichenko type A or E PDAs [15]. ...
... Severe heart defects are frequently corrected in highly complicated surgeries. The risk of complications increases with time spent on heart-lung machines [22,23]. To minimize this risk, surgery must be as brief as possible. ...
... A structured review of the English literature by MacKenzie et al. [11] identified 46 cases of intrapericardial teratoma from 1983 to 2004, whereas another review by Candice et al. [9] from 2004 to 2017 identified 38 neonatal cases. Most cases are diagnosed in the fetal or neonatal period [12] and one of their characteristic symptoms is mass effect compression of the surrounding organs, which is also seen in thymic mediastinal teratomas [8,[13][14][15][16][17][18][19] ) . Another specific symptom of intrapericardial teratoma is cardiac dysfunction caused by massive pericardial effusion [4]. ...
