  • lesions
  • In the present study, data recorded in the National Register for Congenital Heart Defects with respect to the prevalence of specific lesions and sex distribution are compared with that recorded in a published German prevalence study (Prevalence Study) and with the meta-analysis by van der Linde et al. (cambridge.org)
  • They are also be associated with complex congenital heart lesions. (medscape.com)
  • Surgical closure in childhood is the recommended therapy for secundum ASDs (among the most common lesions found with partial fenestrations of the coronary sinus) with clinically significant left-to-right shunts associated with cardiomegaly, symptoms, or both. (medscape.com)
  • CHDs
  • Echocardiographic screening may be associated with increased rate of false-positives (defects resulting in clinically non-significant CHDs) in newborns without prenatal diagnosis or suspicion of CHD. (springer.com)
  • pediatric
  • Automatic rhythms are more common than reentrant rhythms in pediatric patients with apparently normal hearts and are caused by abnormal cellular automaticity. (medscape.com)
  • AVSD
  • It was shown that the mean body surface area-standardized AV septal length (AVSL) was significantly shorter in the NSAVSD parents and siblings than in parents and siblings of syndromic AVSD case and control children. (uiowa.edu)
  • Type of AVSD repair, closure of the mitral valve cleft, moderate to severe postoperative left AV valve regurgitation, and presence of postoperative complete heart block were associated with earlier time to reoperation after adjusting for age and weight at AVSD repair. (uiowa.edu)
  • valve
  • Associated congenital heart defects are common, although double orifice mitral valve can occur as an isolated anomaly. (medscape.com)
  • There are several heart valve defects which stimulate the need for aortic valve replacement. (vims.ac.in)
  • However, the two most common reasons why patients need to replace their aortic valve are (i) blood flow is constricted across a narrowed heart valve (aortic stenosis) or (ii) blood flow is leaking back into heart (aortic regurgitation). (vims.ac.in)
  • The next segment is the AV node, which lies anterior and superior to the ostium of the coronary sinus, directly above the insertion of the septal leaflet of the tricuspid valve. (medscape.com)
  • The leaflets of the valve become thickened and nodular, leading to mitral valve regurgitation and volume overload of the left side of the heart. (atlasvetsinvancouver.com)
  • occur
  • They occur with low daily frequency in as many as 40% of persons with apparently normal hearts. (medscape.com)
  • Although sustained VA can occur in apparently normal hearts, approximately 50% of patients have either CHD or myopathy. (medscape.com)
  • Each of these mechanisms can occur in structurally and functionally normal hearts. (medscape.com)
  • If certain communications between partitions do not disappear, congenital heart defects occur. (medixa.org)
  • Mixing of blood does not occur in congenital heart defects without a shunt. (medixa.org)
  • With the first inhalation of the newborn, the pressure in the respiratory system is increased and is transferred to the heart where the closing and disappearance of communications occur. (medixa.org)
  • left ventricular
  • While structural information is still valid in a sedated horse, some cardiac dimensions (e.g. endsystolic left ventricular diameter, interventricular septal thickness, and free wall thickness) and indices of cardiac function (e.g. fractional shortening and fractional area change) will be altered [ 4 , 5 ]. (omicsonline.org)
  • complications
  • The perfect ASD closure device would be one which completely closes the defect with a minimal risk of complications, is easily implantable and can be re-positioned and retrieved. (lexology.com)
  • Adults
  • [ 1 ] The 32nd Bethesda Conference report estimated that there were approximately 2,800 adults with CHD per 1 million population and that more than half of them have a moderate or high complexity defect. (patient.info)
  • birth
  • Any condition that is present at birth can also be termed a "congenital" condition. (medicinenet.com)
  • Risk factors associated with NSAVSD were examined using the 1997-2005 National Birth Defects Prevention Study database. (uiowa.edu)
  • [ 3 ] The defect is inherited, but frank aneurysmal dilatation is rarely seen at birth. (medscape.com)
  • a heart transplant by the time someone links their survived birth defect to the new illness, says Dr. Roberta Williams of the American College of Cardiology. (heartandcoeur.com)
  • makes the connection between a repaired heart childhood birth defect and an adulthood illness, said Dr. Roberta Williams of the American College of Cardiology. (heartandcoeur.com)
  • Predictors
  • Prematurity, ventricular septal defect and dysmorphisms remained significant predictors of pathogenic CNVs in the multivariate logistic model whereas abnormal EEG and limb dysmorphisms were mainly detected in the group with likely pathogenic VOUS. (biomedcentral.com)
