Pediatric Central Venous Catheterization: the Role of the Aortic Valve in Defining the Superior Vena Cava-Right Atrium Junction.

Summary of "Pediatric Central Venous Catheterization: the Role of the Aortic Valve in Defining the Superior Vena Cava-Right Atrium Junction."

The aortic valve (AV) has been used as a surrogate marker for the superior vena cava-right atrium (SVC-RA) junction during the placement of central venous catheters. There is a paucity of evidence to determine whether this is a consistent finding in children.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Placement of an intravenous catheter in the subclavian, jugular, or other central vein for central venous pressure determination, chemotherapy, hemodialysis, or hyperalimentation.

The downward displacement of the cuspal or pointed end of the trileaflet AORTIC VALVE causing misalignment of the cusps. Severe valve distortion can cause leakage and allow the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to aortic regurgitation.

Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.

Pathological condition characterized by the backflow of blood from the ASCENDING AORTA back into the LEFT VENTRICLE, leading to regurgitation. It is caused by diseases of the AORTIC VALVE or its surrounding tissue (aortic root).

A type of constriction that is caused by the presence of a fibrous ring (discrete type) below the AORTIC VALVE, anywhere between the aortic valve and the MITRAL VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
