IMPACT Registry and National Pediatric Cardiology Quality Improvement Collaborative: Contributions to Quality in Congenital Heart Disease
February 1, 2019
Martin and colleagues describe two efforts to improve outcomes within the congenital heart disease field: the Improving Pediatric and Adult Congenital Treatments (IMPACT) Registry and the National Pediatric Cardiology-Quality Improvement Collaborative (NPC-QIC).

Vitanova and colleagues reviewed outcomes of systemic-to-pulmonary artery shunt surgery to identify potential risk factors for negative outcomes in neonates. Between 2000 and 2016, 305 shunts were implanted in 280 newborns, with a median age of 9 days old. Shunt failure occurred in 8% of patients, and shunt-related mortality was 4%.

Half-Turned Truncal Switch Operation for Transposition of the Great Arteries With Left Ventricular Outflow Obstruction
September 10, 2018
This video demonstrates the author’s approach to the half-turned truncal switch operation. Although the half-turned truncal switch operation is a more invasive surgical procedure, ideal configuration and hemodynamics can be established by maximal use of autologous tissue.
