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...

Correlation between minute carbon dioxide elimination and pulmonary blood flow in single-ventricle patients after stage 1 palliation and 2-ventricle patients with intracardiac shunts: A pilot study.

Assessment of pulmonary blood flow and cardiac output is critical in the postoperative management of patients with single-ventricle physiology or 2-ventricle physiology with intracardiac shunting. Cur...

Ebstein's Anomaly: "The One and a Half Ventricle Heart".

Ebstein's anomaly remains a relatively ignored disease. Lying in the 'No Man's land' between congenital and valve surgeons, it largely remains inadequately studied. We report our short-term results of...

"Interposition Vein Grafting in Head and Neck Free Flap Reconstruction".

Many surgeons are hesitant to use interposition vein grafting in head and neck microvascular free flap surgery due to concerns for elevated risk of flap loss.

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...

Fully automatic segmentation of 4D MRI for cardiac functional measurements.

Segmentation of cardiac medical images, an important step in measuring cardiac function, is usually performed either manually or semi-automatically. Fully automatic segmentation of the left ventricle ...

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.
