Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in Children is Safe with Most Pacemaker Systems, Including Those with Epicardial Leads.

Madeline Bireley, Joshua R Kovach, Candace Morton, Joseph R Cava, Amy Y Pan, Melodee Nugent, Margaret M Samyn,

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of patients with pacemakers remains concerning because of possible magnetic field effects on the device. Many pacemaker models are labeled as non-conditional, or contraindicated for MRI, or do not have any specific safety guidelines listed. This study describes our experience with pacemaker function and adverse events ... Read more >>

Outcomes of catheter ablation of anteroseptal and midseptal accessory pathways in pediatric patients.

Joshua R Kovach, Douglas Y Mah, Dominic J Abrams, Mark E Alexander, Frank Cecchin, John K Triedman, Edward P Walsh,

BACKGROUND:Outcomes for catheter ablation of accessory pathways in pediatric patients have steadily improved, with the exception of pathways located in the anteroseptal (AS) and midseptal (MS) regions, where success is limited by the close proximity of normal atrioventricular conduction. OBJECTIVE:The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of ... Read more >>

Cardiac arrest in a healthy child due to paradoxical embolus across a previously unrecognised sinus venosus defect.

Margaret M Samyn, Todd M Gudausky, Joshua R Kovach, Ronald K Woods,

A previously healthy, preadolescent female suffered an unwitnessed cardiac arrest with prompt return of circulation following bystander initiated resuscitation. Workup demonstrated the cause of her cardiac arrest to be distal left anterior descending coronary artery occlusion with small apical left ventricular transmural myocardial infarction, from a paradoxical embolus traversing a ...

Chronotropic incompetence in paediatric heart transplant recipients with prior congenital heart disease.

Nikki M Singh, Rohit S Loomba, Joshua R Kovach, Steven J Kindel,

BACKGROUND:Cardiopulmonary exercise testing has been used to measure functional capacity in children who have undergone a heart transplant. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing results have not been compared between children transplanted for a primary diagnosis of CHD and those with a primary diagnosis of cardiomyopathy despite differences in outcomes. This study is ... Read more >>

Electrocardiograms in Healthy North American Children in the Digital Age.

Elizabeth V Saarel, Suzanne Granger, Jonathan R Kaltman, L LuAnn Minich, Martin Tristani-Firouzi, Jeffrey J Kim, Kathleen Ash, Sabrina S Tsao, Charles I Berul, Elizabeth A Stephenson, David G Gamboa, Felicia Trachtenberg, Peter Fischbach, Victoria L Vetter, Richard J Czosek, Tiffanie R Johnson, Jack C Salerno, Nicole B Cain, Robert H Pass, Ilana Zeltser, Eric S Silver, Joshua R Kovach, Mark E Alexander, ,

BACKGROUND:Interpretation of pediatric ECGs is limited by lack of accurate sex- and race-specific normal reference values obtained with modern technology for all ages. We sought to obtain contemporary digital ECG measurements in healthy children from North America, to evaluate the effects of sex and race, and to compare our results ... Read more >>

Transplacental treatment of fetal tachycardia: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Garick D Hill, Joshua R Kovach, David E Saudek, Anoop K Singh, Karla Wehrheim, Michele A Frommelt,

Multiple transplacental medications can be used to treat fetal tachycardia. We sought to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis to determine whether digoxin, flecainide, or sotalol was the most efficacious therapy for converting fetal tachycardia to sinus rhythm.We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to compare digoxin, flecainide, or sotalol ...

Chronic Arrhythmias in the Setting of Heterotaxy: Differences between Right and Left Isomerism.

Rohit S Loomba, Richard J Willes, Joshua R Kovach, Robert H Anderson,

So-called heterotaxy affects lateralization of the thoracic and abdominal organs. Congenital malformations may be present in one of several organ systems. Cardiac involvement includes both structural and conduction abnormalities. Data regarding arrhythmias in heterotaxy come from case reports and small case series. We pooled available data to further characterize arrhythmias ... Read more >>

Comparison of risk factors and outcomes for pediatric patients listed for heart transplantation after bidirectional Glenn and after Fontan: an analysis from the Pediatric Heart Transplant Study.

Joshua R Kovach, David C Naftel, F Bennett Pearce, Margaret A Tresler, R Erik Edens, Jeffrey H Shuhaiber, Elizabeth D Blume, Francis Fynn-Thompson, James K Kirklin, Steven D Zangwill,

BACKGROUND: Patients listed for transplant after the bidirectional Glenn (BDG) may have better outcomes than patients listed after Fontan. This study examined and compared outcomes after listing for BDG and Fontan patients. METHODS: All patients listed for transplant after the BDG in the Pediatric Heart Transplant Study between January 1993 ... Read more >>
