Late Survival and Patient-Perceived Health Status of the CHSS Dextro-Transposition of the Great Arteries Cohort
July 26, 2019
Delvin and associates reported the long-term outcomes and quality of life in patients with d-TGA after repair using data from 24 centers of the Congenital Heart Surgeons’ Society (CHSS).
July 3, 2019
Bauser-Heaton and colleagues evaluated outcomes for patients with complex tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (MAPCAs), focusing on those patients who underwent unifocalization with placement of a shut rather than simultaneous intracardiac repair.
June 25, 2019
This is a cohort study from the Pediatric Cardiac Care Consortium based on data from 616 patients with pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum (PA/IVS) treated between 1982 and 2003. Median follow-up was 16.7 years (IQR 12.6-22.7).
June 21, 2019
Migally and colleagues retrospectively evaluated data from the Pediatric Heart Network Single Ventricle Reconstruction trial to determine whether regional cerebral perfusion (RCP) affected outcomes for neonates undergoing the Norwood operation.
Novel Approach to Repair of Tetralogy of Fallot With Absent Pulmonary Valve Syndrome and Severe Airway Compression
June 5, 2019
The authors present a new approach to relieving severe airway compression in tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve and massively dilated pulmonary arteries.

This video illustrates a Norwood procedure with right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery conduit in a neonate with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (aortic atresia and mitral stenosis).
May 9, 2019
Fuhrman and colleagues investigated the occurrence of acute kidney injury (AKI) in young adults with congenital heart disease undergoing a surgical procedure, a group of patients that is increasing in number.
April 26, 2019
Park and colleagues sought to identify risk factors that could predict the need for systemic outflow relief operations (SORO) in newborn patients with transposed great arteries and either double-inlet left ventricle or tricuspid atresia.
