Thoracoscopic Vascular Rings Chart Review
The purpose of this study is to review the use of diverticulopexy, and collect data regarding the ease of the procedure and the overall outcome.
In addition to dividing the vascular ring, some surgeons stress the importance of performing a diverticulopexy (an additional stitch which holds the ring open and prevents recurrence). This is a difficult step to perform through the thoracoscope.
We plan to review the use of this step, the diverticulopexy, and collect data regarding the ease of the procedure and the overall outcome. Once we have accomplished this, we hope to present our initial results of this new procedure.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Congenital, inherited, or acquired anomalies of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM, including the HEART and BLOOD VESSELS.
Cardiovascular Physiological Phenomena
Processes and properties of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM as a whole or of any of its parts.
Rare congenital disorder of connective tissue characterized by brachydactyly, joint stiffness, childhood onset of ocular abnormalities (e.g., microspherophakia, ECTOPIA LENTIS; GLAUCOMA), and proportionate short stature. Cardiovascular anomalies are occasionally seen.
Cardiovascular Physiological Processes
Biological actions and events that support the functions of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM.
Pathological conditions involving the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM including the HEART; the BLOOD VESSELS; or the PERICARDIUM.
This is a research study to investigate cardiovascular health in people with mild hyperparathyroidism. Previous research has suggested that severe hyperparathyroidism may be associated wit...
HIV-infected patients treated with combination antiretroviral therapy demonstrate metabolic abnormalities that may predispose them to cardiovascular disease. In HIV-infected patients we w...
The objective of this study is as follows: - Perform genetic analysis to define the prevalence of each of the known gene mutations in an unselected cohort of patients with focal s...

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test that evaluates the electrical activity of the heart and can be used to detect heart problems. By analyzing ECGs collected over a 20-year period, this s...
LEOPARD syndrome (LS) is a rare hereditary disorder in Asian countries. This syndrome consists of multiple systemic abnormalities. In particular, characteristic cardiovascular effects in LS may includ...
Guidelines recommend screening cardiovascular magnetic resonance (Sc-CMR) imaging for all patients after coarctation of the aorta repair, although there are limited data verifying its clinical utility...
Cardiovascular disease is increased in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and is the principle cause of morbidity and mortality in these patients. In patients with stage 5 CKD, structural chan...
Coarctation of the aorta (CoA) is a common congenital defect whose overall incidence is 5-8% of all congenital cardiac anomalies. Associated cardiac anomalies have been well described in previous stud...
We sought (1) to assess prevalence and type of ECG abnormalities in patients with biopsy proven myocarditis and signs of myocardial damage indicated by LGE, and (2) to evaluate whether ECG abnormaliti...
