A developmental abnormality in which the spiral (aortopulmonary) septum failed to completely divide the TRUNCUS ARTERIOSUS into ASCENDING AORTA and PULMONARY ARTERY. This abnormal communication between the two major vessels usually lies above their respective valves (AORTIC VALVE; PULMONARY VALVE).
Developmental abnormalities in any portion of the VENTRICULAR SEPTUM resulting in abnormal communications between the two lower chambers of the heart. Classification of ventricular septal defects is based on location of the communication, such as perimembranous, inlet, outlet (infundibular), central muscular, marginal muscular, or apical muscular defect.
Developmental abnormalities in any portion of the ATRIAL SEPTUM resulting in abnormal communications between the two upper chambers of the heart. Classification of atrial septal defects is based on location of the communication and types of incomplete fusion of atrial septa with the ENDOCARDIAL CUSHIONS in the fetal heart. They include ostium primum, ostium secundum, sinus venosus, and coronary sinus defects.
A congenital heart defect characterized by the narrowing or complete absence of the opening between the RIGHT VENTRICLE and the PULMONARY ARTERY. Lacking a normal PULMONARY VALVE, unoxygenated blood in the right ventricle can not be effectively pumped into the lung for oxygenation. Clinical features include rapid breathing, CYANOSIS, right ventricle atrophy, and abnormal heart sounds (HEART MURMURS).
Abnormalities in any part of the HEART SEPTUM resulting in abnormal communication between the left and the right chambers of the heart. The abnormal blood flow inside the heart may be caused by defects in the ATRIAL SEPTUM, the VENTRICULAR SEPTUM, or both.

Aortopulmonary window and double aortic arch. A rare association. (1/20)

We report the case of a 27-year-old male patient with dyspnea on physical exertion. Clinical assessment and various tests led to the diagnosis of aortopulmonary window and double aortic arch. According to a literature search, this may be the first report on such association.  (+info)

Magnetic resonance imaging of hearts with atrioventricular valve atresia or double inlet ventricle. (2/20)

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effectiveness and limitations of magnetic resonance imaging in defining cardiac anatomy in patients with double inlet ventricle or atrioventricular valve atresia. DESIGN: Magnetic resonance images were reviewed retrospectively without reference to other morphological data. SETTING: A tertiary referral centre for paediatric cardiology. PATIENTS: 18 patients (aged 8 days to 27 years) with a suspected univentricular atrioventricular connection. METHODS: Imaging by a 1.5 T whole body magnetic resonance system with imaging planes adjusted to individual patient anatomy to best define the cardiac morphology. A complete sequential diagnosis obtained from an independent interpretation of the images was compared with the diagnosis obtained from cross sectional echocardiography and angiocardiography. RESULTS: There was substantial accord between the diagnosis from magnetic resonance alone and that from other methods. In the six instances where there was not accord the magnetic resonance diagnosis was considered to be correct in two cases and incorrect in three cases. In the remaining case no consensus could be reached. In eight patients magnetic resonance imaging provided anatomical information additional to that from other methods. The strengths of magnetic resonance were in imaging the pulmonary arteries and their abnormalities and identifying juxtaposed atrial appendanges but there were some deficiencies in identifying Blalock-Taussig shunts. CONCLUSION: Magnetic resonance imaging provided detailed information about all aspects of cardiac morphology in patients with a suspected diagnosis of univentricular atrioventricular connection. Often it provided additional information to echocardiography. Its use in selected patients should give valuable complementary information.  (+info)

Blood volume and body fluid compartments in lambs with aortopulmonary left-to-right shunts. (3/20)

A left-to-right shunt is accompanied by an increased plasma and blood volume. Since this is likely realized through renin/aldosterone-mediated salt and water retention, other body fluid compartments may be changed too. Therefore, we studied blood volume and body fluid compartments by a single-injection, triple-indicator dilution technique in nine 8-wk-old lambs with an aortopulmonary left-to-right shunt (55 +/- 3% of left ventricular output; mean +/- SEM) and in 11 control lambs, 2.5 wk after surgery. Systemic blood flow was maintained at the same level as in control lambs, but the aortic pressure of the shunt lambs was lower. Blood volume in shunt lambs was larger than in control lambs (110 +/- 6 vs. 84 +/- 7 ml/kg, P < 0.001) through an increase in plasma volume, which correlated significantly with the magnitude of the left-to-right shunt (r = 0.81, P < 0.01). Red blood cell volume was equal to that of control lambs. Evidence was obtained that the increase in plasma volume was induced by a transient increase in renin (8.0 +/- 2.2 vs. 1.6 +/- 0.2 nmol.l-1.h-1; P < 0.02) and aldosterone (0.51 +/- 0.14 vs. 0.24 +/- 0.09 nmol/liter) concentrations. Interstitial water volume, however, was not significantly different from that in control lambs. The amount of intravascular protein was significantly higher than in control lambs (5.0 +/- 0.3 vs. 3.5 +/- 0.2 g/kg body mass, P < 0.001). There were no significant differences in intracellular and total body water volumes between the two groups. We conclude that the increased amount of intravascular protein confines the fluid retained by the kidneys to the vascular compartment.  (+info)

Mayer-von Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome in association with a hitherto undescribed variant of the Holt-Oram syndrome with an aorto-pulmonary window. (4/20)

We report on the association of Mayer-von Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome (MRKHS) with a unique form of Holt-Oram syndrome (HOS) with an aorto-pulmonary window. A 24-year-old Turkish woman was referred to our hospital because of primary amenorrhoea. Both her vagina and uterus were absent, and the diagnosis of MRKHS was established. Laparoscopic creation of a neovagina by the modified Vecchietti technique was performed. A rare congenital malformation of the heart, namely an aorto-pulmonary window, had required cardiac surgery when the patient was a 6-month-old infant. This cardiac malformation plus associated upper limb anomalies led to the clinical diagnosis of HOS. To the best of our knowledge, this is only the second report in the scientific literature on the concurrence of MRKHS and HOS, and the first published case of HOS with an aorto-pulmonary window as the cardiac malformation.  (+info)

Aortopulmonary window with ventricular septal defect and pulmonary atresia: prenatal diagnosis and successful early surgical correction. (5/20)

We report a case in which aortopulmonary window (APW) in combination with pulmonary atresia was diagnosed correctly in a neonate by echocardiography. Prenatal echocardiography showed progression of tetralogy of Fallot to pulmonary atresia with retrograde pulmonary perfusion, concealing the concomitant APW in fetal life. Due to intractable heart failure, primary correction was successfully performed at the age of 4 weeks (weight 2280 g).  (+info)

Congenital semilunar valvulogenesis defect in mice deficient in phospholipase C epsilon. (6/20)

Phospholipase Cepsilon is a novel class of phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C, identified as a downstream effector of Ras and Rap small GTPases. We report here the first genetic analysis of its physiological function with mice whose phospholipase Cepsilon is catalytically inactivated by gene targeting. The hearts of mice homozygous for the targeted allele develop congenital malformations of both the aortic and pulmonary valves, which cause a moderate to severe degree of regurgitation with mild stenosis and result in ventricular dilation. The malformation involves marked thickening of the valve leaflets, which seems to be caused by a defect in valve remodeling at the late stages of semilunar valvulogenesis. This phenotype has a remarkable resemblance to that of mice carrying an attenuated epidermal growth factor receptor or deficient in heparin-binding epidermal growth factor-like growth factor. Smad1/5/8, which is implicated in proliferation of the valve cells downstream of bone morphogenetic protein, shows aberrant activation at the margin of the developing semilunar valve tissues in embryos deficient in phospholipase Cepsilon. These results suggest a crucial role of phospholipase Cepsilon downstream of the epidermal growth factor receptor in controlling semilunar valvulogenesis through inhibition of bone morphogenetic protein signaling.  (+info)

Aortopulmonary window with anomalous origin of the right coronary artery from the pulmonary artery: two cases highlighting the importance of complete pre-operative echocardiographic evaluation of the coronary arteries in all conotruncal anomalies. (7/20)

This report describes two infants with an aortopulmonary window in association with anomalous origin of the right coronary artery from the pulmonary artery. In both cases the diagnosis was made pre-operatively by transthoracic echocardiography, with the initial clue being extensive collateral flow within the myocardium. In each case there was surgical confirmation of the echocardiographic findings. These two cases demonstrate that coronary artery evaluation should be an integral part of every new echocardiographic evaluation, particularly in the setting of conotruncal anomalies.  (+info)

Aortopulmonary window--impact of associated lesions on surgical results. (8/20)

OBJECTIVES: The aortopulmonary window (APW) is a communication between the pulmonary artery (PA) and the ascending aorta in the presence of two separate semilunar valves. This review describes the natural history of the APW and the impact of associated defects on surgical results in patients treated at our institution. METHODS: Retrospective longitudinal study, based on the review of medical files of patients diagnosed between 1995 and 2005. RESULTS: Of nine patients diagnosed as having APW, six had associated lesions. Seven patients were submitted to surgical treatment with two deaths. One patient was not submitted to surgery due to pulmonary hypertension and another one died before the surgery due to a respiratory infection complication. CONCLUSION: The surgical results are satisfactory when the APW presents as an isolated defect and when surgery is performed early, preventing the development of irreversible arterial pulmonary hypertension (APH). The presence of associated complex congenital heart disease is a bad prognostic factor in our series.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Accuracy of cross-sectional echocardiography in diagnosis of aortopulmonary window. AU - Balaji, Seshadri. AU - Burch, Michael. AU - Sullivan, Ian D.. PY - 1991/3/15. Y1 - 1991/3/15. N2 - The first echocardiographic descriptions of the aortopulmonary window (APW) were case reports.1,2 These observations were extended by Smallhorn et al,3 who described appearances of an isolated APW in 4 infants and compared these with appearances in 14 patients with a common arterial trunk and in 6 with a single pulmonary artery originating at the ascending aorta. In these reports,1-3 diagnosis was also established by invasive investigation and did not include any patient who had APW with associated cardiac abnormalities. The publication of case reports as late as 1988 suggests that the echocardiographic diagnosis of even an isolated APW is not always straightforward,4 perhaps because the lesion may be confused with other structural abnormalities.5 There have been no reports of the accuracy of ...
An aortopulmonary window is a communication between the ascending aorta and the pulmonary trunk. It is a distinct entity from truncus arteriosus due to the presence of two separate arterial valves rather than a single arterial valve, and is one of the rarest congenital cardiac lesions, accounting for under 0.1% of all congenital heart defects. Associated vascular lesions are common with anomalies of the aortic arch being the most prevalent, including interruption, coarctation, isthmal hypoplasia, double arch and right aortic arch. Cardiac lesions are also commonplace, including ventricular septal defect, atrial septal defect and left and right ventricular outflow valve stenoses ...
We report the case of a 3,5 month-old infant presented at cardiology consultation of our institution for investigation of a heart murmur associated with failure to thrive and respiratory distress. Echocardiogram showed dilatation of left heart cavities, patent foramen ovale, small muscular ventricular septal defect and pulmonary hypertension. Angio-CT was performed on a 64-slice CT to better characterize the congenital heart disease. Aortopulmonary window was diagnosed and surgically corrected. Patient evolution was good with discharge 10 days after surgery. The authors review the literature and stress the importance of angio-CT in pre-operative evaluation.. ...

The DC party took place at a semi-private room off the upstairs bar at Dupont Italian Kitchen (DIK Bar-yes, its a gay bar, the name is intentional). Despite the torrential downpour that broke over us right as the party was supposed to start, we had a good turnout. We had a raffle, champagne, and rainbow cupcakes. Raffle prizes were: Yay! New York limited edition tote, gift certificates to Scion Restaurant (owned by an APW lady, who just got married on Saturday), and a 10-class pack at STROGA (strength + yoga). The crowd was mostly APW ladies and their friends and partners (and my mom!), but we were very excited to meet two ladies who saw the party listed in DCists Weekend Picks and decided to check it out (we think APW gained two new readers!). And we had several guys wander in from the bar area to see what the party was about, and a couple of them stayed to hang out for a bit.. *****. Then there was Raleigh-Durham, which will quite possibly put all future APW parties everywhere to shame. ...

As awareness is being raised towards corporate compliance, discussion regarding corporate governance has truly blossomed. Without a doubt, the idea that legal compliance will lead to enhanced corporate value will attract even greater attention in the future.. However, among laws which are discussed in the same vein of legal compliance, how much emphasis is placed on tax law? For fields such as those related to the Companies Act, the Financial Instruments and Exchange Act, the Antimonopoly Act, and the consumer laws, there is a high level of legal compliance realized through internal controls. However, the same awareness does not exist for tax law.. Every day, there are news reports regarding tax evasion and unreported income by corporations.

Abstract:. BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: To evaluate the technical success and complications of image-guided central venous port (CVP) placement with subclavian vein (SCV) access in pediatric oncology population.. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ninety-two children (52 boys, 40 girls; mean age, 8.5years) underwent CVP implantation under local anesthesia with conscious sedation. SCV access was firstly attempted under ultrasonographic guidance and CVP implantation was performed under fluoroscopic guidance. Technical success, peri-procedural (,24h) complication, and post-procedural (,24h) complication were assessed.. RESULTS: In total, 102 CVPs were implanted in 92 children with a mean catheter time of 364days (total, 38,224days; range, 14-1911days). In three small children, conversion of SCV access to internal jugular vein access yielded a primary technical success rate of 97.1% and overall technical success rate of 100%. Three minor peri-procedural complications were observed (2.9%) and seven post-procedural ...

The EFSA Panel on Plant Health performed a pest categorisation of the species within the Andean Potato Weevil (APW) complex (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) for the EU. The complex consists of 14 species, 12 belong to the genus Premnotrypes, plus Phyrdenus muriceus and Rhigopsidius tucumanus. These weevils co‐occur in the Andean region, usually above 2,100 m. Eggs are deposited in plant debris close to potato plants. Upon hatching larvae immediately bore into potato tubers where they complete development. Except for R. tucumanus, which pupates inside the tuber, mature larvae leave the tuber and pupate in the soil. Adults can survive feeding on different plants but cannot deposit fertile eggs unless fed on potato foliage. P. muriceus can also complete development feeding on tomato and eggplant roots and occurs at lower altitudes from southern USA to central Argentina. Within the APW complex only species in the genus Premnotrypes are regulated in Annex IIA of Commission Implementing Regulation ...

The umbrella is derived from the Latin word umbra meaning shade. In the western world, the umbrella has become popular in the 16 - 17th centuries. Especially in European countries that consist of raining is the first to use a newer version of umbrellas that we currently use. Shapes and sizes of umbrellas have been changed since then. It was considered an umbrella is an accessory for women. If you are looking for a cute umbrella for girls, that means you are following that historic event. For the first time in history, a Persian traveler Jonas Hanway (1712-86) used to have an umbrella with him and used publicly in England. He was to the first male who popularized the umbrella as an accessory for men. When you consider buying an umbrella, there are many features that you need to pay attention to..

N2 - Three patients with tetralogy of Fallot under the age of one year treated by aorta-right pulmonary artery anastomosis are reported, in which severe hypoplasia of the left pulmonary artery secondary to palliation was present. In the first two cases this complication was not recognized during investigation prior to repair, and both died of low cardiac output due to severe right ventricular hypertension. In the third case the complication was evidenced and treated with interposition of a prosthetic valved conduit between the right ventricle and confluence of the pulmonary arteries. Hypoplasia or atresia of the left pulmonary artery and right pulmonary vascular obstructive disease, secondary to a long-functioning aortopulmonary anastomosis, require surgical ...
Horses lose on average 10-15 litres of sweat per hour of exercise or transport. The production of sweat is beneficial to cool the horse (reducing heat storage by body tissues) but comes at the cost of dehydration of the cells and other body fluid compartments. Dehydration impairs the ability to cool (thermoregulation) and results in increased heat storage and heat strain leading to cellular and tissue injury ...
The StarBiz Ideation Challenge is an internal SARAO initiative designed to encourage staff members to use their expertise and experience to develop innovative commercialisation projects that either use SARAO technology or provide solutions to projects within SARAO.. The participants will have an opportunity to pitch their ideas to fellow colleagues and request endorsement through a financial pledge (from an allocated budget of R10 000).. The StarBiz Ideation Challenge was initiated in 2016. Participants had to raise funds through internal crowdfunding from staff, with funds allocated for the project. To date, there are eight projects currently running and supported by SARAO.. ...
When we examine the mechanisms that might contribute to hiring difficulties, a mixed picture emerges. High-tech plants, often thought to be hampered by inadequate workforce skills, are not associated with significantly greater hiring difficulties. Beyond higher-level math and reading demands, the two largest and most consistently robust predictors of hiring difficulties are demand for unique skills and membership in an industry cluster. Both of these factors raise questions about the relationship between a manufacturing establishment and other regional actors, including other firms, educational institutions, and training providers. The positive relationship between unique skill demands and long-term vacancies indicates that a number of establishments are unwilling or unable to solve their skill challenges through internal training, even for skills that are highly specific to a particular plant. ...

The aim of the paper is to present the results obtained by utilization of an originalapproach called Molecular Descriptors Family on Structure-Property (MDF-SPR) andStructure-Activity Relationships (MDF-SAR) applied on classes of chemical compoundsand its usefulness as precursors of models elaboration of new compounds with betterproperties and/or activities and low production costs. The MDF-SPR/MDF-SARmethodology integrates the complex information obtained from compounds structure inunitary efficient models in order to explain properties/activities. The methodology has beenapplied on a number of thirty sets of chemical compounds. The best subsets of moleculardescriptors family members able to estimate and predict property/activity of interest wereidentified and were statistically and visually analyzed. The MDF-SPR/MDF-SAR modelswere validated through internal and/or external validation methods. The estimation andprediction abilities of the MDF-SPR/MDF-SAR models were compared with previousreported
By tapping into the breadth and depth of AWS services, the NHL will be able to automate video processing and content delivery in the cloud and leverage its Puck and Player Tracking (PPT) System, which runs on AWS cloud infrastructure, to better capture the details of game play for its fans, teams, and media partners. The NHL will work with the Amazon Machine Learning Solutions Lab to apply AWSs deep portfolio of machine learning services to game video and official NHL data to develop and share advanced game analytics and metrics that take fans deeper into the game.

Parts of the original film The Little Prince, distributed by Netflix, hint at the sources dreamlike qualities. The animation (a mix of CG and stop-motion pulled off beautifully by Lou Romano and Céline Desrumaux) is expressive but not precise. Richard Harvey and Hans Zimmers twinkling celestial score sounds like a childhood music box heard through internal fog. But the books unique tone -- its peculiar openness, clarity, and lyricism -- is hard to sustain over 100-plus minutes of plot-driven screen time. With Osbornes adaptation, we get all the necessary cinematic trappings: character development, jokes, wholesome messaging (friendship is important), a bad guy to escape, a plane to be whisked away from a ginormous trash compactor at the last possible moment. If Saint-Exupéry offered readers a petite, queer-tasting square of some delicate cake theyd never heard of, Netflix has served up a familiar, fragrant, well-balanced meal. Youll enjoy it, but its the cake youll remember. Even in ...
viable option for humanity, not only as Nation-states but also in our personal lives? How can we work to finally lay down our sword and shield?. It will not be done through internal discussions within our Association, nor will it be done through demonstrations and statements that create boundaries between ourselves and the rest of the world. This is how I perceive the original wording of the Study Action Issue on Peacemaking.. …should the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) reject the use of any and all kinds of violence and war…and adopt a principle of seeking just peace through nonviolent means.. Before I begin to answer the questions I began with, let me first situate myself within this discussion. I have been a soldier, and I am becoming a Chaplain. I am the child of a soldier, the grandchild of a sailor, and the great-grandchild of a Medal of Honor winner.. I believe that there is no such thing as Just War. The concept simplifies one of the most complex aspects of human ...
