Poor left ventricular growth and diastolic dysfunction long after simple total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) repair has been well documented and is believed to originate from insufficient pre-operative volume preload. The objective of the study was to confirm these findings.

It is uncertain with the outcomes of different repair strategies of anomalous left coronary artery from pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) in adolescent and adult patients. The long-term outcomes of reimplanta...
Reduced left ventricular (LV) diastolic function can exert significant load to the right ventricle (RV) that can affect RV-pulmonary vasculature (PV) coupling. RV-PV can be assessed with the RV length...
The surgical indication and optimal approach for ischemic mitral regurgitation with ventricular septal defect remain uncertain. Very few studies have reported the occurrence of left ventricular aneury...
Increased afterload and reduced left ventricular (LV) performance are sequela of mitral valve repair. However, hemodynamic left atrial and ventricular parameters that can predict outcome following mit...
The aim of this study was to evaluate early clinical outcomes and echocardiographic measurements of the left ventricle in patients who underwent left ventricular aneurysm repair using two different te...
Spontaneous resynchronization of dyskinetic segments of the left ventricle occurs after coronary bypass surgery in adults and has been shown in some children. It is, however, unknown what ...
The purpose is to see if any conclusions can be drawn about the uncommon heart defect: anomalous drainage of the inferior vena cava to the left atrium.
Collect data to support “standard of care possibility” of extracardiac repair with closure of intracavitary communication and plication of the aneurysm as probably safest surgical repa...
Background: Residual pulmonary regurgitation following repair of tetralogy of Fallot, in particular the use of a transannular patch, has been shown to correlate with the development of rig...
Patients presenting with STEMI and late revascularization can suffer from severe left ventricular dysfunction. Midterm and longterm mortality can be determined by the risk of fatal ventric...
Rare congenital cardiomyopathies characterized by the lack of left ventricular myocardium compaction. The noncompaction results in numerous prominent trabeculations and a loose myocardial meshwork (spongy myocardium) in the LEFT VENTRICLE. Heterogeneous clinical features include diminished systolic function sometimes associated with left ventricular dilation, that presents either neonatally or progressively. Often, the RIGHT VENTRICLE is also affected. CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE; PULMONARY EMBOLISM; and ventricular ARRHYTHMIA are commonly seen.
An anomalous pulmonary venous return in which the right PULMONARY VEIN is not connected to the LEFT ATRIUM but to the INFERIOR VENA CAVA. Scimitar syndrome is named for the crescent- or Turkish sword-like shadow in the chest radiography and is often associated with hypoplasia of the right lung and right pulmonary artery, and dextroposition of the heart.
Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.
A form of CARDIAC MUSCLE disease, characterized by left and/or right ventricular hypertrophy (HYPERTROPHY, LEFT VENTRICULAR; HYPERTROPHY, RIGHT VENTRICULAR), frequent asymmetrical involvement of the HEART SEPTUM, and normal or reduced left ventricular volume. Risk factors include HYPERTENSION; AORTIC STENOSIS; and gene MUTATION; (FAMILIAL HYPERTROPHIC CARDIOMYOPATHY).
A malformation of the heart in which the embryonic common PULMONARY VEIN was not incorporated into the LEFT ATRIUM leaving behind a perforated fibromuscular membrane bisecting the left atrium, a three-atrium heart. The opening between the two left atrium sections determines the degree of obstruction to pulmonary venous return, pulmonary venous and pulmonary arterial hypertension.
