Major aortopulmonary collateral arteries in association with atrioventricular septal de...
Cardiology in the Young; Makkar NN, Raymundo SA et. al.

May 14th, 2022 - A major aortopulmonary collateral artery is a rare and easily missed diagnosis that is usually associated with Tetralogy of Fallot or pulmonary atresia. We present two cases of major aortopulmonary collaterals associated with trisomy 21 and atriov...

Teaching the Modified Single-Patch Technique for Complete Atrioventricular Septal Defect.
World Journal for Pediatric & Congenital Heart Surgery; Stephens EH, Backer CL

Apr 22nd, 2022 - Understanding the morphology of atrioventricular septal defects and learning the operative strategies for their repair is one of the more difficult tasks for congenital cardiac surgery residents to master. The modified single-patch technique for s...

Phenotypic overlap between cardioacrofacial dysplasia-2 and oral-facial-digital syndrome.
European Journal of Medical Genetics; Yamada M, Suzuki H et. al.

Apr 20th, 2022 - Oral-facial digital (OFD) syndrome is characterized by abnormalities of the face (hypertelorism and low set-ears), oral cavity (multiple frenula, lingual hamartoma, or lobulated tongue) and extremities (postaxial polydactyly). At least 19 genes ha...

Contemporary Outcomes After Pulmonary Artery Banding in Complete Atrioventricular Septa...
The Annals of Thoracic Surgery; Kim MJ, Cha S et. al.

Apr 12th, 2022 - This study investigated the clinical outcomes and the effect of band tightness on outcome after pulmonary artery banding (PAB) in patients with complete atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD). From 2000 through 2019, among 133 patients with isolate...

Repair of complete atrioventricular septal defect between 2 and 3.5 kilograms: Defining...
The Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery; Goutallier CS, Buratto E et. al.

Mar 29th, 2022 - Repair of complete atrioventricular septal defect (cAVSD) is routinely performed at around 3 months of age with good results. However, some patients require earlier surgery due to heart failure or failure to thrive. It is uncertain whether cAVSD r...
