Matthew R Carazo, Meghan S Kolodziej, Elizabeth S DeWitt, Nadine A Kasparian, Jane W Newburger, Valeria E Duarte, Michael N Singh, Alexander R Opotowsky,

Background In adults with acquired heart disease, depression is common and associated with adverse outcomes. Depression may also be important in adults with congenital heart disease (CHD). Methods and Results We conducted a cohort study of outpatients with CHD, aged ≥18 years, enrolled in a prospective biobank between 2012 and 2017. ... Read more >>

Adverse event rate during inpatient sotalol initiation for the management of supraventricular and ventricular tachycardia in the pediatric and young adult population.

Stephanie F Chandler, Esther Chu, Robert D Whitehill, Laura M Bevilacqua, Vassilios J Bezzerides, Elizabeth S DeWitt, Mark E Alexander, Dominic J Abrams, John K Triedman, Edward P Walsh, Douglas Y Mah,

BACKGROUND:Sotalol is an important antiarrhythmic drug in the pediatric population. Given the risk of proarrhythmia, sotalol is initiated in inpatient settings, with adult studies as recent as 2015 supporting this practice. OBJECTIVE:The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency of adverse events (AEs) during sotalol initiation for the ... Read more >>

BACKGROUND:Arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (ACM) is a variably penetrant disease increasingly identified in young patients. OBJECTIVES:This study sought to describe the diverse phenotype, genotype, and outcomes in pediatric and adolescent patients. METHODS:Records from 1999 to 2016 were reviewed for individuals age <21 years with a consistent personal or family history. Patients were categorized by ... Read more >>

Differentiation of fasciculoventricular fibers from anteroseptal accessory pathways using the surface electrocardiogram.

Edward T O'Leary, Elizabeth S Dewitt, Douglas Y Mah, Kimberlee Gauvreau, Edward P Walsh, Vassilios J Bezzerides,

BACKGROUND:Fasciculoventricular fibers (FVFs) are responsible for 1%-5% of cases of asymptomatic preexcitation on the surface electrocardiogram (ECG). Unlike ventricular preexcitation seen in Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome, FVFs are not associated with sudden cardiac death from preexcited atrial fibrillation. OBJECTIVE:The purpose of this study was to identify surface ECG variables that differentiate ... Read more >>

Intravenous Amiodarone and Sotalol Impair Contractility and Cardiac Output, but Procainamide Does Not: A Langendorff Study.

Charles Mackin, Elizabeth S DeWitt, Katherine J Black, Xiaoqi Tang, Brian D Polizzotti, Sarah J van den Bosch, Mark E Alexander, John N Kheir,

INTRODUCTION:Direct comparison of the effects of antiarrhythmic agents on myocardial performance may be useful in choosing between medications in critically ill patients. Studies directly comparing multiple antiarrhythmic medications are lacking. The use of an experimental heart preparation permits examination of myocardial performance under constant loading conditions. METHODS:Hearts of Sprague Dawley ... Read more >>

Coronary artery compression from epicardial leads: More common than we think.

Douglas Y Mah, Ashwin Prakash, Diego Porras, Francis Fynn-Thompson, Elizabeth S DeWitt, Puja Banka,

BACKGROUND:A child with an epicardial pacemaker presented with sudden death at our institution, secondary to coronary artery compression. This case prompted enhanced surveillance of all patients with epicardial pacing or defibrillation systems. OBJECTIVE:The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of coronary artery compression and the diagnostic yield ... Read more >>

Rodent Working Heart Model for the Study of Myocardial Performance and Oxygen Consumption.

Elizabeth S DeWitt, Katherine J Black, John N Kheir,

Isolated working heart models have been used to understand the effects of loading conditions, heart rate and medications on myocardial performance in ways that cannot be accomplished in vivo. For example, inotropic medications commonly also affect preload and afterload, precluding load-independent assessments of their myocardial effects in vivo. Additionally, this ... Read more >>

Effects of commonly used inotropes on myocardial function and oxygen consumption under constant ventricular loading conditions.

Elizabeth S DeWitt, Katherine J Black, Ravi R Thiagarajan, James A DiNardo, Steven D Colan, Francis X McGowan, John N Kheir,

Inotropic medications are routinely used to increase cardiac output and arterial blood pressure during critical illness. However, few comparative data exist between these medications, particularly independent of their effects on venous capacitance and systemic vascular resistance. We hypothesized that an isolated working heart model that maintained constant left atrial pressure ... Read more >>

Elizabeth S DeWitt, John K Triedman, Frank Cecchin, Doug Y Mah, Dominic J Abrams, Edward P Walsh, Kimberlee Gauvreau, Mark E Alexander,

BACKGROUND: Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) used to prevent sudden cardiac arrest in children not only provide appropriate therapy in 25% of patients but also result in a significant incidence of inappropriate shocks and other device complications. ICDs placed for secondary prevention have higher rates of appropriate therapy than those placed ... Read more >>

Elizabeth S DeWitt, Dominic J Abrams,

Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD) have become an integral component in the management of children with life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias complicating a variety of different inherited and congenital cardiovascular conditions. Implantation often requires novel approaches and configurations to overcome the size and anatomic limitations posed by many children needing ICDs. While their use ... Read more >>
