Single Ventricle Outcome

2014-08-27 03:45:28 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The objective of this research proposal is to perform an ongoing single institution prospective clinical trial examining the overall clinical outcome of children with single ventricle physiology.

Description

Congenital disease is the most common cause for infant death from a birth defect. Approximately 30,000 infants are born each year with congenital heart defects.Over one-third of those babies will require cardiac surgery. A particularly lethal cardiac defect is one with single ventricle physiology. The objective of this research proposal is to perform an ongoing single institution prospective clinical trial examining the overall clinical outcome of children with single ventricle physiology.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cardiac manifestation of systemic rheumatological conditions, such as RHEUMATIC FEVER. Rheumatic heart disease can involve any part the heart, most often the HEART VALVES and the ENDOCARDIUM.

Occlusion of the outflow tract in either the LEFT VENTRICLE or the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart. This may result from CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS, predisposing heart diseases, complications of surgery, or HEART NEOPLASMS.

A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.

Disease-related laceration or tearing of tissues of the heart, including the free-wall MYOCARDIUM; HEART SEPTUM; PAPILLARY MUSCLES; CHORDAE TENDINEAE; and any of the HEART VALVES. Pathological rupture usually results from myocardial infarction (HEART RUPTURE, POST-INFARCTION).

Inflammation of the ENDOCARDIUM caused by BACTERIA that entered the bloodstream. The strains of bacteria vary with predisposing factors, such as CONGENITAL HEART DEFECTS; HEART VALVE DISEASES; HEART VALVE PROSTHESIS IMPLANTATION; or intravenous drug use.
