A comparison of oral flecainide and amiodarone for the treatment of recurrent supraventricular tachycardia in children.

Allison C Hill, Michael J Silka, Yaniv Bar-Cohen,

BACKGROUND:Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) in children can be difficult to treat when first-line therapies (beta-blockade or digoxin) are not effective. Both flecainide and amiodarone are used as second-line therapies. We sought to compare the efficacy and safety of flecainide and amiodarone in pediatric patients with recurrent SVT. METHODS:Pediatric patients treated with ... Read more >>

Prenatal diagnosis and management of congenital complete heart block.

Jay D Pruetz, Jennifer C Miller, Gerald E Loeb, Michael J Silka, Yaniv Bar-Cohen, Ramen H Chmait,

Congenital complete heart block (CCHB) is a life-threatening medical condition in the unborn fetus with insufficiently validated prenatal interventions. Maternal administration of medications aimed at decreasing the immune response in the fetus and beta-agonists intended to increase fetal cardiac output have shown only marginal benefits. Anti-inflammatory therapies cannot reverse CCHB, ... Read more >>
