Congenital heart disease affects 1 in 100 newborn babies each year and more than 2,000,000 Americans have a congenital heart defect. One common defect treated at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston is single ventricle heart. Due to these overwhelming numbers, the use of diagnostic imaging technology to assess these defects and heart function is an important step in the evolving care of this patient group.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of exercise training on exercise capacity, physical activity (PA), health-related quality of life (HRQoL), and the psychosocial factors affecting PA in sedentary congenital heart defect (CHD) children and healthy sedentary children. The degree of improvement after exercise training were compared between CHD children and healthy sedentary children.
The primary goal of this study is to systematically describe early neurodevelopment using a complementary set of observational and neurophysiological measures that may predict cognitive and motor delays earlier than currently possible for infants with Complex Congenital Heart Disease (CCHD).
Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is the most common birth defect in the United States, affecting approximately 0.8% of live births. Improved treatment strategies and interventions have increased survival such that 85% to 90% of affected children are expected to live well into adulthood, thereby causing a demographic shift in which adults now outnumber children with CHD, and more people with complex CHD are living longer.
Congenital heart defects have an incidence of 9/1000 live births. Infants with congenital heart defects such as Transposition of Great Arteries / Hypoplastic Left Heart are at risk for brain injury because of concomitant brain malformations. Previous studies of cerebral MRI in infants with congenital heart defects showed that in 20-40% of cases there was preoperative brain injury and post operative with the same incidence. These findings are strongly associated with early and l...
The purpose of this research study is to look at the advantages of using a 3D printed heart model for surgical planning in children who have been diagnosed with Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) and clinical heart failure and will undergo a ventricular assist device (VAD) placement. The investigators want to study the correlation of having a 3D printed model with improvement in patient outcomes and compare those with patients who have had a VAD placement without a 3D model.
The congenital malformation (CMF) include disturbance in normal process of organogenesis occurring before birth . - The (CMF) are structural ,functional, or (biochemical Molecular) defect presenting at birth. - The structural defect resulting from prenatal insult during period of embryogeneses. - The neonate with congenital malformation have differences in physiology, anatomy, in response to stress. - The (CMF) are important causes of infan...
This is a single site, randomized, blinded, sham controlled, parallel group study to identify whether electro-acupuncture (EA) is a beneficial anesthesia adjunct in children undergoing procedures on their congenital heart defects (CHD).
The aim of the research is to asses the efficacy of kinesiology taping application in breast engorgement in early postpartum stage. Kinesiology application will be performed by women's health physiotherapist. Patient's perceived improvement and milk outflow following application will be assessed.
Neonatal patients with congenital heart defects (CHD) have changing physiology in the context of transitional period. Patients with CHD are at risk of low perfusion status or abnormal pulmonary blood flow. Near infrared spectroscopy has been used in neonatal intensive care units (NICU) to measure end-organ perfusion. The investigator plan on monitoring newborns with CHD admitted to the NICU with NIRS and echocardiography during the first week of life and correlate measures of p...
Hypoplastic aortic arch is a congenital heart defect that is prejudicial for the growth of newborns. It is often associated to other heart defects. Different surgical techniques exist to address this defect, but the literature is very poor with regards to the use of an autologous pericardial patch. Most use extensive dissection techniques or synthetic patches. Here we report our institution's original approach using the newborns own pericardium for what we believe to be an opti...
Over the past four decades, it has become clear that childhood physical activity carries with it a myriad of beneficial effects. It is closely linked to quality of life and the recognized benefits include, but are not limited to, optimal growth and development, a healthier self-concept, enhanced peer socialization, and decreased anxiety and depression. Long term, an active lifestyle decreases the risk of many important physical and mental morbidities. Thus, the observation that...
Ventricular septal defects (VSD) are the most common cardiac congenital heart defect (about 1/3 of patients with congenital heart disease). VSD management is related to hemodynamics and anatomical localization and the occurrence of complications. Small perimembranous VSD without pulmonary hypertension and without significant left to right shunting are tolerated, whereas large VSD with pulmonary hypertension require early surgical management in the first months of life. The mana...
In today's world of advanced surgery, children born with congenital heart disease (CHD) are surviving into adulthood. However, the surgical procedures these children undergo do not cure the underlying problem and this these children develop other heart problems later in life. Heart failure is the one of the most common heart problems effecting these patients. This heart failure can be seen in both lower pumping chambers of the heart, however, sometimes only one side of the hear...
Malformations of the heart (congenital heart disease) are the most common congenital birth defects, occurring in about 1% of children. Each year, between 150-200 children will undergo open heart surgery at British Columbia Children's Hospital (BCCH) to repair the defect(s) in their heart. The abnormal structure of the heart or the open heart surgery may cause damage to the electrical system of the heart which can disturb the rhythm of the heart (arrhythmias), prolong recovery...
Congenital heart disease is the most common congenital malformation in the world with high morbidity and mortality. However, there is no data to assess the perioperative outcome of congenital heart disease surgery among Chinese cross-regional population. This study aims to investigate the perioperative outcome of congenital heart disease surgery in childhood from a chinese cross-regional cohort.
This study aims to establish normal coronary artery pulse Doppler flow patterns and velocities using transoesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in patients with a variety of congenital heart disease. This will be accomplished by performing pre-operative and intra-operative TEEs on up to 250 patients undergoing surgery for congenital heart disease.
The Congenital Heart Disease Research Registry (CHDRR) is a program dedicated to understanding the etiology and improving the treatment of Congenital Heart Disease (CHD). This Registry will act as a central coordinating center for recruiting subjects with CHD and will provide infrastructure and guidelines for researchers studying the causes and treatment of CHD. Investigators working directly with the Registry will have access to biological, demographic and phenotype data from...
Congenital heart disease is one of the most common malformations in newborns. About 1% of newborns have cardiac malformations. Many need open heart surgery, which contributes substantially to pediatric mortality and morbidity. Recent advances in genetics suggest that many congenital heart defects are caused by mutation of genes. So far, half a dozen genes are found to be associated with congenital heart diseases, such as TBX5, NKX2.5, and GATA4, to name a few. In the near ...
Review the feasibility, safety and outcomes in adults with congenital heart disease who undergo pacemaker implantation for bradycardia, tachycardia or heart failure indications
The project aims toward clarifying the underlying mechanism and the long-term impact of congenital heart disease on neurodevelopment.
Children having open heart surgery must be on a heart-lung bypass machine. It is essential that the blood in the heart-lung machine does not clot. This is accomplished by giving a drug called heparin, a "blood thinner". The process of making a clot involves a lot of steps. One of the steps involves a protein called thrombin. Heparin acts on thrombin to keep blood from clotting. A technique has been developed to measure the blood's ability to generate thrombin. The bloods's abi...
This is a multi-center prospective, single-arm, non-randomized, open label study to assess feasibility of the Xeltis Bioabsorbable Pulmonary Valved Conduit in subjects requiring Right Ventricular Outflow Tract correction or reconstruction due to congenital heart malformations.
Background: Children with congenital heart defects (CHD) are reported to have poorer oral health compared with healthy children. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of an intensive oral health care program among children with CHD followed from infancy to the age of five years, by comparing their oral health status at five years with a control group of children with CHD who had not received the program. Methods: In this longitudinal study, children in wester...
