Since 1988, our centre employs vertical plication repair with deattachment and reattachment of the tricuspid valve for Ebstein anomaly. This study describes the characteristics and long-term outcomes of our single-centre cohort.
This article was published in the following journal.
Ebstein anomaly is a rare malformation of the tricuspid valve of the heart. The malformed tricuspid valve may be incompetent, stenotic, or rarely, imperforate. Pregnant patients with Ebstein anomaly b...
Exercise capacity is a well-defined marker of outcome in congenital heart disease. We analyzed seventeen cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) derived parameters and their correlation to exercise ca...
We present a case of critical Ebstein's anomaly with circular shunting, diagnosed in utero. The fetal cardiothoracic area ratio was elevated; tricuspid regurgitation and pulmonary regurgitation worsen...
This study will investigate Ebstein's anomaly, a congenital abnormality of the tricuspid valve of the heart and try to identify the genetic origins of the disease. Adults and children 2 y...
The objective of this study is to determine the safety and feasibility of autologous mononuclear cells (MNS) collected from bone marrow (BM) and using an add-on intramyocardial delivery fo...
Can music listening decrease a patient's anxiety before surgery? The investigators hypothesize that music listening will decrease a patient's pre-operative anxiety significantly more than ...
The main objectives of the trial are the efficacy and safety of intercostal nerve block in the midaxillary line versus paravertebral block, both guided by ultrasound in patients scheduled ...
Primary Objective: To determine whether the use of a paravertebral block in patients undergoing reconstructive surgery for breast cancer results in decreased immediate post-operative pain...
A congenital heart defect characterized by downward or apical displacement of the TRICUSPID VALVE, usually with the septal and posterior leaflets being attached to the wall of the RIGHT VENTRICLE. It is characterized by a huge RIGHT ATRIUM and a small and less effective right ventricle.
A procedure whereby the body is stimulated to generate extra soft tissue by the application of stretching forces that stimulate new growth of tissue which, over a period of time, results in a 2-dimensional expansion of the tissue. The procedure is used in reconstructive surgery for injuries caused by trauma, burns, or ablative surgery. Various types of TISSUE EXPANSION DEVICES have been developed that exert stretching forces.
A long flat muscle that extends along the whole length of both sides of the abdomen. It flexes the vertebral column, particularly the lumbar portion; it also tenses the anterior abdominal wall and assists in compressing the abdominal contents. It is frequently the site of hematomas. In reconstructive surgery it is often used for the creation of myocutaneous flaps. (From Gray's Anatomy, 30th American ed, p491)
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Surgery which could be postponed or not done at all without danger to the patient. Elective surgery includes procedures to correct non-life-threatening medical problems as well as to alleviate conditions causing psychological stress or other potential risk to patients, e.g., cosmetic or contraceptive surgery.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
