Phase I Study of Bone Marrow Derived Mononuclear Cells to Right Ventricle of Patients With Ebstein Anomaly

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...

Clinical Outcomes in Fenestrated Extra-Cardiac Fontan in Low Preoperative Risk Profiles

Evaluation of fenestration benefit in Extra-cardiac total cavo-pulmonary connection (Fontan procedure) in single ventricle anomaly, comparing clinical outcomes of patients with low preoper...

Emergency Department Assessment of Right Ventricular Function and Size in the Post Cardiac Arrest Patient

The right side of the heart of often overlooked in patients who are acutely unwell, as the main area of focus when performing echocardiography tends to be the left ventricle. The right ven...

Single Ventricle Outcome

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 phys...

2D Strain of Right Ventricle in Peroperative of Cardiac Surgery

Evaluation of the right ventricle (RV) deformation (strain) with 2D speckle tracking technics obtained by echocardiographies (TEE) in peroperative period of cardiac surgery . TEE is perfo...

Successful management of living donor liver transplantation for biliary atresia with single ventricle physiology-from peri-transplant through total cavopulmonary connection: A case report.

Children with single ventricle physiology have complete mixing of the pulmonary and systemic circulations, requiring staged procedures to achieve a separation of these circulations, or Fontan circulat...

Single-stage repair of double outlet right ventricle with subpulmonic ventricular septal defect (Taussig-Bing anomaly).

Double outlet right ventricle with subpulmonic ventricular septal defect is a very rare form of congenital heart disease. Surgical correction involves closure of the ventricular septal defect with baf...

Embolic stroke in a postpartum patient with Fontan physiology.

In cardiac physiology, single ventricle typically refers to the presence of a dominant systemic ventricle along with a hypoplastic ventricle. The Fontan operation is used to repair the single ventricl...

Endovascular Management of a Large Persistent Sciatic Artery Aneurysm.

The persistent sciatic artery (PSA) is a remnant of the fetal circulatory system that is preserved in less than 0.1% of the population. Up to 60% of patients with this vascular anomaly will go on to d...

Exploring kinetic energy as a new marker of cardiac function in the single ventricle circulation.

Ventricular volumetric ejection fraction (VV EF) is often normal in patients with single ventricle circulations despite them experiencing symptoms related to circulatory failure. We sought to determin...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Interposition of a portion of the colon (e.g., SIGMOID COLON) between the liver and the diaphragm. It is associated with abdominal pain, vomiting, constipation, anorexia and volvulus. Chilaiditi anomaly refers to asymptomatic interposition.

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.

Tomography using single-photon emitting RADIONUCLIDES to create images that are captured in times corresponding to various points in the cardiac cycle.

The volume of the HEART, usually relating to the volume of BLOOD contained within it at various periods of the cardiac cycle. The amount of blood ejected from a ventricle at each beat is STROKE VOLUME.

Autologous skeletal muscle that is wrapped around the heart and electrically stimulated in order to provide mechanical heart assistance. The latissimus dorsi muscle is commonly used to form this ventricle that functions to independently augment cardiac performance by pumping in series with the heart.
