Adult patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) have an increased incidence of cancer, presumably owing to repeated radiation exposure, genetic predisposition, or repeated stress factors during heart interventions. However, there are limited data on the risk of cancer in children and young adults with CHD compared with the general population.
Background There are limited data about cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) in adult congenital heart disease. We aimed to assess early and late outcomes of CRT among patients with adult congenital heart disease. Methods and Results We retrospectively studied 54 patients with adult congenital heart disease (median age, 46 years; range, 18-73 years; 74% men) who received CRT implantation (biventricular paced >90%) between 2004 and 2017. Clinical and echocardiographic data were analyzed at baseline and ...
Congenital heart disease is the most common congenital malformation. In adult congenital heart disease (ACHD), the prevalence of major depressive disorder (MDD) is increased. Beyond its immanent health risks, increased epi‑ and paracardial adipose tissue has been described in MDD. Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is a fat depot surrounding the heart, and it is hypothesized to be associated with coronary artery disease, left-ventricular dysfunction and atrial fibrillation, being frequent problems in ACHD lo...
To provide the first epidemiological lifestyle descriptions of the Italian grown-up/adult congenital heart disease (GUCH/ACHD) population by identifying the determinants of poor perceived health status.
Glomerular filtration rate is a key physiologic variable with a central role in clinical decision making and a strong association with prognosis in diverse populations. Reduced estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is common among adults with congenital heart disease (ACHD).
The diagnosis and management of congenital heart disease (CHD), the most common inborn defect, has been a tremendous success story of modern medicine. In the 1950s survival of children born with CHD was only approximately 15%, whereas nowadays more than 90% of these children survive well into adulthood. Consequently the prevalence of patients with CHD has shifted away from infancy and childhood towards adulthood. Adult CHD cardiology is now encompassing not only young or middle-aged adults but also patients...
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a 12-week in-home self-monitored physical activity (PA) program targeting a combination of lifestyle physical activity program on changes in endothelial reactivity, arterial stiffness, sedentary behaviors, upright and stepping activities in individuals with asymptomatic peripheral arterial disease (APAD).
Following the notable work accomplished by the Mexican Association of Specialists in Congenital Heart Disease (Asociación Mexicana de Especialistas en Cardiopatías Congénitas) with the development of a national registry for congenital cardiac surgery, the World Society for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery has implemented an international platform to collect data and analyze outcomes of children with congenital heart disease.
Early mortality has plagued the otherwise good outcomes in adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) transplantation, but perio-operative care is improving. We sought to identify risk factors for 1-year mortality currently and examine the results of patients without those risk factors compared to non-ACHD (nACHD) patients.
Predicting perioperative morbidity and mortality in cardiac surgery for adult congenital heart disease is challenging because it encompasses a wide spectrum of disease. There is a paucity of published outcome data, and there are no perioperative risk score calculators for this population group. We set out to identify robust determinants of morbidity and mortality in this patient population under going cardiac surgery.
This study aims to investigate the changes in renal function and levels of urinary biomarkers before and after cardiac angiography in children with congenital heart disease (CHD).
The number of women with congenital heart disease (CHD) of reproductive age is increasing, yet a description of trends in pregnancy and delivery outcomes in this population is lacking.
Heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) is common in patients with adult congenital heart disease. Many of the most common congenital defects have a high prevalence of HFrEF, including left-sided obstructive lesions (aortic stenosis, coarctation of the aorta, Shone complex), tetralogy of Fallot, Ebstein anomaly, lesions in which there is a systemic right ventricle, and lesions palliated with a Fontan circulation. However, heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is also prevalent ...
Obesity prevalence is higher among rural populations than urban, including youth. Reduced physical activity levels are associated with childhood obesity. It could be assumed that the obesity disparity between rural and urban children is attributable, in part, to differences in physical activity levels; however, previous research quantifying and comparing physical activity levels between rural and urban youth are mixed. Lifestyle may be more important than geographic location in determining physical activity...
Patients with adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) are at increased risk of developing late cardiovascular complication. However, little is known about the predictive factors for long-term outcome. The Model for End-Stage Liver Disease eXcluding INR (MELD-XI) score was originally developed to assess cirrhotic patients and has the prognostic value for heart failure (HF) patients. In the present study, we examined whether the score also has the prognostic value in this population. We retrospectively examined...
As a result of improvements in care for patients with congenital heart disease (CHD), >90% of children born with CHD are expected to survive to adulthood. For those adults, heart failure (HF) is the leading cause of death. Advances in recognition of, and treatments for, these patients continue to improve. Specifically, adults with CHD are candidates for both heart transplantation and mechanical circulatory support. However, challenges remain that require investigation to improve outcomes.
Parents of infants with congenital heart disease (CHD) experience increased parenting stress levels, potentially interfering with parenting practices and bear adverse family outcomes. Condition severity has been linked to parenting stress. The current study aimed to explore parenting stress trajectories over infancy in parents of infants with complex CHD, and to compare them by post-operative cardiac physiology.
Young adult heart transplant (HT) recipients transferring to adult care are at risk for poor health outcomes. We conducted a pilot randomized controlled trial to determine feasibility and test a transition intervention for young adults who underwent HT as children and transferred to adult care.
Stem cell therapy using bone marrow derived or mesenchymal stem cells has become a popular option for cardiovascular disease treatment, however the administration of embryonic stem cells has been mostly experimental. Remarkably, most of these ongoing clinical trials involve adult patients, but little is known regarding the safety and efficacy of stem cell therapy in newborns and children battling congenital heart diseases. Furthermore, cell delivery methods involve the administration of stem cells without p...
We aim to review select literature pertaining to congenital heart disease (CHD)-induced right ventricular (RV) function and failure.
Despite improved survival among children with congenital heart disease (CHD), the risk of psychosocial difficulties remains largely unchanged with an increased emphasis of improving support for parents as a mechanism to optimize outcomes.
ISL1 promotes cardiomyocyte differentiation and plays important roles in heart development. However, whether ISL1 rs1017 polymorphism is associated with the congenital heart disease (CHD) risk remains controversial.
This study examined the incidence of a person's first diagnosis of a selected chronic disease, and the relationships between modifiable lifestyle risk factors and age to first of six chronic diseases.
The improvement in surgical techniques has contributed to an increasing number of childbearing women with complex congenital heart disease (CCC). However, adequate counseling about pregnancy in this situation is uncertain, due to a wide variety of residual cardiac lesions.
