Transcatheter closure of patent foramen ovale using the Amplatzer septal occluder to prevent recurrence of neurological decompression illness in divers. (1/3859)

OBJECTIVE: Large flap valve patent foramens may cause paradoxical thromboembolism and neurological decompression illness in divers. The ability of a self expanding Nitinol wire mesh device (Amplatzer septal occluder) to produce complete closure of the patent foramen ovale was assessed. PATIENTS: Seven adults, aged 18-60 years, who had experienced neurological decompression illness related to diving. Six appeared to have a normal atrial septum on transthoracic echocardiography, while one was found to have an aneurysm of the interatrial septum. METHODS: Right atrial angiography was performed to delineate the morphology of the right to left shunt. The defects were sized bidirectionally with a precalibrated balloon filled with dilute contrast. The largest balloon diameter that could be repeatedly passed across the septum was used to select the occlusion device diameter. Devices were introduced through 7 F long sheaths. All patients underwent transthoracic contrast echocardiography one month after the implant. RESULTS: Device placement was successful in all patients. Device sizes ranged from 9-14 mm. The patient with an aneurysm of the interatrial septum had three defects, which were closed with two devices. Right atrial angiography showed complete immediate closure in all patients. Median (range) fluoroscopy time was 13.7 (6-35) minutes. Follow up contrast echocardiography showed no right to left shunting in six of seven patients and the passage of a few bubbles in one patient. All patients have been allowed to return to diving. CONCLUSION: The Amplatzer septal occluder can close the large flap valve patent foramen ovale in divers who have experienced neurological decompression illness. Interatrial septal aneurysms with multiple defects may require more than one device.  (+info)

Chronic radiodermatitis following cardiac catheterisation: a report of two cases and a brief review of the literature. (2/3859)

Cardiac angiography produces one of the highest radiation exposures of any commonly used diagnostic x ray procedure. Recently, serious radiation induced skin injuries have been reported after repeated therapeutic interventional procedures using prolonged fluoroscopic imaging. Two male patients, aged 62 and 71 years, in whom chronic radiodermatitis developed one to two years after two consecutive cardiac catheterisation procedures are reported. Both patients had undergone lengthy procedures using prolonged fluoroscopic guidance in a limited number of projections. The resulting skin lesions were preceded, in one case, by an acute erythema and took the form of a delayed pigmented telangiectatic, indurated, or ulcerated plaque in the upper back or below the axilla whose site corresponded to the location of the x ray tube during cardiac catheterisation. Cutaneous side effects of radiation exposure result from direct damage to the irradiated tissue and have known thresholds. The diagnosis of radiation induced skin injury relies essentially on clinical and histopathological findings, location of skin lesions, and careful medical history. Interventional cardiologists should be aware of this complication, because chronic radiodermatitis may result in painful and resistant ulceration and eventually in squamous cell carcinoma.  (+info)

The effect of race and sex on physicians' recommendations for cardiac catheterization. (3/3859)

BACKGROUND: Epidemiologic studies have reported differences in the use of cardiovascular procedures according to the race and sex of the patient. Whether the differences stem from differences in the recommendations of physicians remains uncertain. METHODS: We developed a computerized survey instrument to assess physicians' recommendations for managing chest pain. Actors portrayed patients with particular characteristics in scripted interviews about their symptoms. A total of 720 physicians at two national meetings of organizations of primary care physicians participated in the survey. Each physician viewed a recorded interview and was given other data about a hypothetical patient. He or she then made recommendations about that patient's care. We used multivariate logistic-regression analysis to assess the effects of the race and sex of the patients on treatment recommendations, while controlling for the physicians' assessment of the probability of coronary artery disease as well as for the age of the patient, the level of coronary risk, the type of chest pain, and the results of an exercise stress test. RESULTS: The physicians' mean (+/-SD) estimates of the probability of coronary artery disease were lower for women (probability, 64.1+/-19.3 percent, vs. 69.2+/-18.2 percent for men; P<0.001), younger patients (63.8+/-19.5 percent for patients who were 55 years old, vs. 69.5+/-17.9 percent for patients who were 70 years old; P<0.001), and patients with nonanginal pain (58.3+/-19.0 percent, vs. 64.4+/-18.3 percent for patients with possible angina and 77.1+/-14.0 percent for those with definite angina; P=0.001). Logistic-regression analysis indicated that women (odds ratio, 0.60; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.4 to 0.9; P=0.02) and blacks (odds ratio, 0.60; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.4 to 0.9; P=0.02) were less likely to be referred for cardiac catheterization than men and whites, respectively. Analysis of race-sex interactions showed that black women were significantly less likely to be referred for catheterization than white men (odds ratio, 0.4; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.2 to 0.7; P=0.004). CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that the race and sex of a patient independently influence how physicians manage chest pain.  (+info)

Prediction of life expectancy in patients with primary pulmonary hypertension. A retrospective nationwide survey from 1980-1990. (4/3859)

Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) is a progressive disease of unknown etiology usually followed by death within 5 years after diagnosis. Although heart-lung or lung transplantation is now offered to patients with advanced PPH, adequate criteria assessing an accurate prediction of life expectancy in PPH has been difficult to establish. The aims of this study were to identify the characteristic features associated with a poor prognosis in patients with PPH, and to attempt to establish an individual prognostic index that predicts with great accuracy survival or death of PPH after one year, thereby helping to define criteria for patient selection for transplantation. In 1991, a retrospective nation-wide survey on PPH was conducted in Japan, and the clinical and cardiorespiratory variables of 223 PPH cases (female; 144, male; 79) in the period from 1980-1990 were obtained. The mean pulmonary arterial pressure (PPA) was 57.5+/-17.2 mm Hg (mean+/-SD), and the overall median survival time was 32.5 months since the first diagnostic catheterization. The characteristic features of 61 patients who died within one year of catheterization (Nonsurvivors group) were compared to 141 patients who survived one year or more from the time of catheterization (Survivors group). Among several clinical and cardiorespiratory variables, heart rate, PPA, right atrial pressure (PRA), stroke volume index (SI), pulmonary vascular resistance, and partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PaCO2) were significantly different between the two groups. As the independent factors, PPA, PRA, SI, and PaCO2 were selected for the multiple logistic analysis. Using a 0.7 probability cut-point to separate Nonsurvivors from Survivors, 84.6% of Nonsurvivors and Survivors could be correctly predicted from this logistic regression equation. Predictive equations like the present preliminary one can be used in the future to better assess life expectancy in patients with PPH in whom transplantation will be considered.  (+info)

LocaLisa: new technique for real-time 3-dimensional localization of regular intracardiac electrodes. (5/3859)

BACKGROUND: Estimation of the 3-dimensional (3D) position of ablation electrodes from fluoroscopic images is inadequate if a systematic lesion pattern is required in the treatment of complex arrhythmogenic substrates. METHODS AND RESULTS: We developed a new technique for online 3D localization of intracardiac electrodes. Regular catheter electrodes are used as sensors for a high-frequency transthoracic electrical field, which is applied via standard skin electrodes. We investigated localization accuracy within the right atrium, right ventricle, and left ventricle by comparing measured and true interelectrode distances of a decapolar catheter. Long-term stability was analyzed by localization of the most proximal His bundle before and after slow pathway ablation. Electrogram recordings were unaffected by the applied electrical field. Localization data from 3 catheter positions, widely distributed within the right atrium, right ventricle, or left ventricle, were analyzed in 10 patients per group. The relationship between measured and true electrode positions was highly linear, with an average correlation coefficient of 0.996, 0.997, and 0.999 for the right atrium, right ventricle, and left ventricle, respectively. Localization accuracy was better than 2 mm, with an additional scaling error of 8% to 14%. After 2 hours, localization of the proximal His bundle was reproducible within 1.4+/-1.1 mm. CONCLUSIONS: This new technique enables accurate and reproducible real-time localization of electrode positions in cardiac mapping and ablation procedures. Its application does not distort the quality of electrograms and can be applied to any electrode catheter.  (+info)

Detection of adenoviral genome in the myocardium of adult patients with idiopathic left ventricular dysfunction. (6/3859)

BACKGROUND: The use of molecular biological techniques has demonstrated the importance of enteroviral infection of the myocardium in the pathogenesis of myocarditis and dilated cardiomyopathy in adults and adenovirus and enterovirus infection in children. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of adenoviral infection of the myocardium of adults with impaired left ventricular function of unknown origin. METHODS AND RESULTS: Nested polymerase chain reaction (nPCR) was used to determine the frequency of detection of adenoviral DNA and enteroviral RNA in myocardial tissue samples from 94 adult patients with idiopathic left ventricular dysfunction and 14 control patients. Histological and immunohistological analyses were performed to detect myocardial inflammation. Adenoviral genomic DNA was detected by nPCR in 12 of the 94 patients with left ventricular dysfunction (in each case, adenovirus type 2), whereas enteroviral RNA was detected in another 12 patients. All control samples were negative for both viruses. In all patients, active myocarditis was excluded according to the Dallas criteria. However, there was significantly decreased CD2, CD3, and CD45RO T lymphocyte counts in the adenovirus-positive group compared with the adenovirus-negative group (P<0.05), whereas no differences were associated with enterovirus infection. CONCLUSIONS: Although enteroviruses are an important causative agent in the pathogenesis of myocarditis and dilated cardiomyopathy, this study shows that adenovirus infection is also important in the pathogenesis of left ventricular failure in adults. However, the pathogenetic basis of disease associated with adenovirus infection may be different than that after infection with other agents, particularly with respect to activation of the host immune response.  (+info)

Transcatheter occlusion of a post-Fontan residual hepatic vein to pulmonary venous atrium communication using the Amplatzer septal occluder. (7/3859)

A residual hepatic vein to left atrial communication may result in progressive cyanosis after the Fontan procedure. This problem has usually been treated surgically by ligation or re-inclusion of the residual hepatic vein in the Fontan circulation. Previous attempts at transcatheter closure of such veins have been unsuccessful. An Amplatzer septal occluder was successfully used for transcatheter closure of a post-Fontan hepatic vein to pulmonary venous atrium fistula in an 8 year old boy.  (+info)

Primary angioplasty versus systemic thrombolysis in anterior myocardial infarction. (8/3859)

OBJECTIVES: This study compares the efficacy of primary angioplasty and systemic thrombolysis with t-PA in reducing the in-hospital mortality of patients with anterior AMI. BACKGROUND: Controversy still exists about the relative benefit of primary angioplasty over thrombolysis as treatment for AMI. METHODS: Two-hundred and twenty patients with anterior AMI were randomly assigned in our institution to primary angioplasty (109 patients) or systemic thrombolysis with accelerated t-PA (111 patients) within the first five hours from the onset of symptoms. RESULTS: Baseline characteristics were similar in both groups. Primary angioplasty was independently associated with a lower in-hospital mortality (2.8% vs. 10.8%, p = 0.02, adjusted odds ratio 0.23, 95% confidence interval 0.06 to 0.85). During hospitalization, patients treated by angioplasty had a lower frequency of postinfarction angina or positive stress test (11.9% vs. 25.2%, p = 0.01) and less frequently underwent percutaneous or surgical revascularization after the initial treatment (22.0% vs. 47.7%, p < 0.001) than did patients treated by t-PA. At six month follow-up, patients treated by angioplasty had a lower cumulative rate of death (4.6% vs. 11.7%, p = 0.05) and revascularization (31.2% vs. 55.9%, p < 0.001) than those treated by t-PA. CONCLUSIONS: In centers with an experienced and readily available interventional team, primary angioplasty is superior to t-PA for the treatment of anterior AMI.  (+info)

Diagnostic cardiac catheterization and coronary angiography are considered the gold standard in the assessment of the anatomy and physiology of the heart and its associated vasculature. In 1929, Forssmann demonstrated the feasibility of cardiac catheterization in humans when he passed a urological catheter from a vein in his arm to his right atrium and documented the catheters position in the heart by x-ray. In the 1940s, Cournand and Richards applied this technique to patients with cardiovascular disease to evaluate cardiac function. These three physicians were awarded the Nobel Prize in 1956. In 1958, Sones inadvertently performed the first selective coronary angiography when a catheter in the left ventricle slipped back across the aortic valve, engaged the right coronary artery, and power-injected 40 mL of contrast down the vessel. The resulting angiogram provided superb anatomic detail of the artery, and the patient suffered no adverse effects. Sones went on to develop selective coronary ...

To avoid venous puncture, a new concept for standby cardiac pacing during percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) and diagnostic cardiac catheterization was developed. It uses an arterial guidewire as a unipolar pacing electrode with the second electrode attached to the skin. The system was tested in 25 coronary arteries of 22 patients undergoing PTCA and in the left ventricles of 10 patients undergoing diagnostic cardiac catheterization. Coronary pacing via the guidewire used for directing the balloon catheter was possible in all patients and in 24 of the 25 coronary arteries attempted. Maximum duration of pacing was 8 min. Threshold currents ranged from 1 to 15 mA (mean 5.7). Left ventricular pacing via the same wires or standard wires used for introduction of diagnostic or guiding catheters was possible in all patients and was maintained for up to 10 min. Threshold currents ranged from 1 to 7 mA (mean 3.9). Neither method for pacing produced adverse effects during these short ...
The risk of major complications during diagnostic cardiac catheterization procedure is usually less than 1%, and the risk and the risk of mortality of 0.05% for diagnostic procedure. For any patient, the complication rate is dependent on multiple factors and is dependent on the demographics of the patient, vascular anatomy, co-morbid conditions, clinical presentation, the procedure being performed, and the experience of the operator. The complications can be minor as discomfort at the site of catheterization to major ones like death.. But there are very serious complications of the procedure that can result in death or serious disability.. From a recently updated review of cath complications. Local Vascular Complications.

Cardiac catheterization is the diagnostic tool which enables physicians to identify blockages in the blood vessels (coronary artery) that supply the heart. Additionally it is used to detect other heart-related diseases such as valve disease. During a cardiac catheterization procedure, digital X-ray images are taken of all the coronary arteries in the heart while other images are acquired that measure and show how hard the heart muscle is pumping. This is typically done by inserting thin plastic tubes (catheters) into the femoral artery (groin), but it may also be performed using your arm. Once the catheters ...

The concept of diastolic heart failure has generated a fair amount of controversy, with some authorities questioning whether specific evidence of diastolic dysfunction has been found in patients diagnosed with this condition. Zile and colleagues described findings from diagnostic studies performed on a series of patients diagnosed with diastolic heart failure.. The study authors enrolled 47 patients scheduled for diagnostic cardiac catheterizations who had heart failure and normal left ventricular ejection fractions. These patients were compared with 10 control patients who had no evidence of heart failure but underwent catheterization for the evaluation of chest pain and were found to have normal coronary arteries and systolic function. During cardiac catheterization, a micromanometer was inserted into the left ventricle to measure precisely left ventricular pressures during diastole. Echocardiography was performed on all patients, measuring left ventricular volumes at the beginning and end of ...

Diagnostic cardiac catheterization was performed within 2 h after echocardiography. Before contrast material was injected into the LV or coronary artery, LV pressure was obtained using a catheter-tipped micromanometer (SPC-454D, Millar Instrument Co., Houston, Texas) and recorded on a polygraph system (RMC-2000, Nihon Kohden Inc., Tokyo, Japan) and also on a digital data recorder (NR-2000, Keyence, Osaka, Japan). The offset of pressure waves obtained using a catheter-tipped micromanometer was adjusted to that obtained using a fluid-filled system. From the recorded pressure waves, the peak negative first derivative of left ventricular pressure (dP/dt) was determined, and then Tw was calculated using the method proposed by Weiss et al. (18). In the calculation of Tw, the following assumption is applied: a monoexponential curve fitting with LV pressure decay after the phase of peak negative dP/dt has a zero asymptote. This assumption may bring a possibility that Tw is dependent on LV contraction ...
Background: In assessing left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic pressure (EDP) noninvasively, not only left atrial (LA) function but also LV compliance should be considered. Recently developed tissue strain imaging (TSI) enables us to evaluate myocardial extensibility during diastole. Accordingly, we investigated whether LVEDP could be predicted using a new parameter, ie, LA dimension at LV end-systole (LADs) corrected by LV diastolic myocardial strain (%thinning from end systole).. Methods: Study subjects consisted of 112 patients collected from our data base of 322 patients underwent TSI and diagnostic cardiac catheterization on the same day. In all patients, leftventriculography and LVEDP measurement were performed. Fifty-six had prior myocardial infarction (MI). Thirty-nine were anterior MI, 11 inferior and 6 were anterior plus inferior wall MI. Fourteen of those had a LV apical aneurysm. The remaining 56 had no localized LV wall motion abnormality. Peak radial strain during early diastole ...

The cardiac catheterization procedure takes between 30 minutes to an hour. You will not be completely asleep during the procedure, because it will be necessary to talk to you during the test. There will be several staff members in the lab that will assist the physician. A Coronary angiography is usually done along with cardiac catheterization. A Coronary Angiogram is a test that uses X-rays to help your doctor find narrowing or blockage in one or more of your coronary arteries. To perform an angiogram, your physician will numb your groin with medicine, The medicine may burn as it begins to work but then you should have no pain for the rest of the exam. A small thin tube called a catheter will be threaded through a large vessel in your leg known as the femoral artery. It will follow that artery to your heart. Some physicians have been specially trained to use the wrist (radial) artery, which is possible in certain patients and has an advantage of speedier recovery. Because catheters and devices ...

Coronary artery disease (CAD) remains the worlds leading cause of death, causes widespread adverse effects on quality of life, and perpetuates massive healthcare spending. The involvement of lipid core plaques (LCPs) in CAD development, its progression, and acute coronary events has been well known for decades, yet detecting lipid core plaques in a living patient remains challenging. Detection of LCPs during the coronary catheterization procedure may lead to secondary prevention, reduction in procedural complications, and eventually the development of reliable non-invasive methods for primary prevention. Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is widely used across numerous industries for rapid, non-destructive, remote identification of chemical compounds. Intravascular NIRS was developed for use during the coronary catheterization procedure and has been rigorously prospectively validated for a unique and novel diagnostic FDA claim for the detection of lipid core plaque. An additional important ...

Cardiac catheterization (heart cath) is the insertion of a catheter into a chamber or vessel of the heart. This is done both for diagnostic and interventional purposes. Subsets of this technique are mainly coronary catheterization, involving the catheterization of the coronary arteries, and catheterization of cardiac chambers and valves of the cardiac system. Cardiac catheterization is a general term for a group of procedures that are performed using this method, such as coronary angiography and left ventricle angiography. Once the catheter is in place, it can be used to perform a number of procedures including, coronary angioplasty, balloon septostomy, electrophysiology study or catheter ablation. Procedures can be diagnostic or therapeutic. For example, coronary angiography is a diagnostic procedure that allows the interventional cardiologist to visualize the coronary vessels. Percutaneous coronary intervention, however, involves the use of mechanical stents to increase blood flow to ...
Cardiac Catheterization is a procedure used to diagnose and treat cardiovascular conditions. During cardiac catheterization, a long thin tube called a catheter is inserted in an artery or vein in your groin, neck or arm and threaded through your blood vessels to your heart. Using this catheter, doctors can then do diagnostic tests as part of a cardiac catheterization. Some heart disease treatments, such as coronary angioplasty, also are done using cardiac catheterization ...

Transradial catheterization is an endovascular procedure or catherization procedure performed to diagnose and treat arterial disease (e.g., coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease, etc.). Endovascular procedure can be performed achieving access in to bodys arterial system from either femoral artery (in groin), brachial artery (in elbow) or radial artery in the wrist. The transfemoral (through groin) approach to perform cardiac catheterization has typically been more prevalent in invasive cardiology. But, radial access has gained in popularity due to technical advances with catheters and lower complication rates than transfemoral access. In 1948, Radner published one of the first descriptions of transradial central arterial catheterization and attempts at coronary artery imaging using radial artery cut-down. Transradial access to perform diagnostic cardiac catheterization procedures was introduced by Campeau and was later adapted for therapeutic procedures of coronary angioplasty by ...

Part 2 - conclusion). LAST week, we took our readers in a journey back to year 1628, almost 400 years ago, when blood circulation, as we know it today, was discovered, understood, and accepted by medical science for the first time. This fundamental information inspired and led to cascading advances, one after the other, in medicine as a whole, and in cardiovascular medicine and surgery in particular. One discovery enabled the invention of more sophisticated diagnostic and therapeutic measures or procedures. The cutting-edge and state-of-the-art medical and surgical procedures available to patients today were made possible and ushered in by those past proven concepts and evidence-based discoveries.. The first right heart angiography in human was done in 1929 by Werner Forssmann on himself. He was derided as crazy but was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1956, which he shared with Andre Cournand and Dickinson Richards, who introduced diagnostic cardiac catheterization in the early 1940s.

The indications included in this publication cover a variety of cardiovascular signs and symptoms as well as clinical judgments as to the likelihood of cardiovascular findings. Within each main disease category, a standardized approach was used to capture a significant number of clinical scenarios without making the list of indications excessive. The term indication is used interchangeably with clinical scenario in the document for brevity and does not imply that imaging should necessarily be done. Diagnostic catheterization may include several different procedure components. The indications developed focused primarily on 2 aspects of diagnostic catheterization. Many indications focused on the performance of coronary angiography for the detection of coronary artery disease (CAD), with other procedure components (e.g., hemodynamic measurements, ventriculography) performed at the discretion of the operator. The majority of the remaining indications focused on hemodynamic measurements to ...

Angio-Seal™ Vascular Closure Device provides a method of closing arterial punctures and minimizing the discomfort associated with cardiac catheterization procedures.
Applications of virtual reality in Interventional Radiology have largely been directed towards development of simulators for teaching and for training in catheterization procedures or for demonstrating specific interventions such as angioplasty, stent placement or intra-arterial drug infusion therapy. Primary advantages of such systems are that they provide the clinician with an opportunity to practice hand-eye coordinated catheter manipulations that previously could only be achieved during actual patient studies or in the animal laboratory. Difficulties with the systems include problems relating to modeling realistic interactions between the catheter and blood vessels and difficulties in providing the clinician with a library of vascular reconstructions demonstrating pathologies from actual patient databases. Also, because the catheterization procedure is so closely linked with imaging equipment, it is a challenge to reproduce the clinical setting insofar as the clinician feels a part of the ...

Other information: The cardiac catheterisation laboratory (CCL) is a specialised medical radiology facility where both chronic-stable and life-threatening cardiovascular illness is evaluated and treated. Although there are many potential sources of discomfort and distress associated with procedures performed in the CCL, a general anaesthetic is not usually required. For this reason, an anaesthetist is not routinely assigned to the CCL. Instead, to manage pain, discomfort and anxiety during the procedure, nurses administer a combination of sedative and analgesic medications according to direction from the cardiologist performing the procedure. This practice is referred to as nurse-administered procedural sedation and analgesia (PSA). While anecdotal evidence suggested that nurse-administered PSA was commonly used in the CCL, it was clear from the limited information available that current nurse-led PSA administration and monitoring practices varied and that there was contention around some ...
Background: Knowledge of current trends in nurse-administered procedural sedation and analgesia (PSA) in the cardiac catheterisation laboratory (CCL) may provide important insights into how to improve safety and effectiveness of this practice.. Objective: To characterise current practice as well as education and competency standards regarding nurse-administered PSA in Australian and New Zealand CCLs.. Design: A quantitative, cross-sectional, descriptive survey design was used.. Methods: Data were collected using a web-based questionnaire on practice, educational standards and protocols related to nurse-administered PSA. Descriptive statistics were used to analyse data.. Results: A sample of 62 nurses, each from a different CCL, completed a questionnaire that focused on PSA practice. Over half of the estimated total number of CCLs in Australia and New Zealand was represented. Nurse-administered PSA was used in 94% (n = 58) of respondents CCLs. All respondents indicated that benzodiazepines, ...

BACKGROUND: Despite concern that cardiac surgery may adversely affect cognition, little evidence is available from population-based studies using presurgery data. With the use of the Health and Retirement Study, we compared memory change after participant-reported cardiac catheterization or cardiac surgery.. METHODS: Participants were community-dwelling adults aged 65 years and older who self-reported cardiac catheterization or heart surgery at any biennial Health and Retirement Study interview between 2000 and 2014. Participants may have undergone the index procedure any time in the preceding 2 years. We modeled preprocedure to postprocedure change in composite memory score, derived from objective memory testing, using linear mixed effects models. We modeled postprocedure subjective memory decline with logistic regression. To quantify clinical relevance, we used the predicted memory change to estimate impact on ability to manage medications and finances independently.. RESULTS: Of 3,105 ...

In the past 20 to 30 years, the area of pediatric interventional cardiology has had noteworthy Development. Technological revolutions have significantly progressed management of cardiovascular disease in both children and adults with congenital heart disease (CHD). Interventional treatment has developed a suitable substitute management for numerous CHD, counting ventricular septal defects (VSDs), closing of atrial defects, Coarctation of the Aorta (COA), dilation of stenosis vessels (branch pulmonary arteries and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA)). A hybrid approach could be used in a number of cases wherever the percutaneous method is problematic or the patient still needs repair of additional related cardiac abnormalities (1).. By means of advances in echocardiography, the character of cardiac catheterization (CC) in examining congenital heart disease (CHD) has been re-directed to either creating a detailed hemodynamic training, or device some interventional processes (2)..

Although the exercise test was performed after diagnostic catheterisation after an interval of more than three days, non-specific effects of catheterisation and contrast medium might modify postexercise diastolic function. However, the interval between the diagnostic catheterisation and exercise test did not differ significantly among the groups (table 1). Thus the postexercise diastolic dysfunction in group 1 could not be attributed to the effect of catheterisation.. We performed echocardiography serially over a seven day period after exercise. Therefore it is possible that postexercise changes in Doppler indices in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy were a result of measurement errors or day to day variability. However, the mitral flow velocity profile was unchanged throughout the study in the normal subjects and in the dilated cardiomyopathy patients in group 2. Thus day to day variability of Doppler measurements were minimal. Bias related to echocardiographic analysis was also excluded, as ...

A cardiac catheterization is a special test that the Pediatric Cardiologist can perform to study how your childs heart looks and to obtain information about oxygen levels, pressures, and blood flow within the heart.. The test involves the insertion of thin, flexible plastic tubes called cardiac catheters into the vein or artery of your childs upper leg. Occasionally the vein in the neck is used to insert a catheter. Your Pediatric Cardiologist will inform you if this is necessary. The catheters are advanced up into the heart and are guided by the cardiologist from chamber to chamber inside the heart. The catheters show up on X-ray, so the cardiologist can see exactly where the catheter is and where it needs to go next. As the catheter progresses from one chamber to the next a pressure measurement is made and a small sample of blood is analyzed for oxygen content. The heart continues to work normally throughout the test. During the test some iodine based dye, or contrast will be injected into ...
