Alyssa Ritter, Petra Werner, Brande Latney, Bryon L Krock, Avni Santani, Emma Bedoukian, Cara M Skraban, Matthew A Deardorff, Elizabeth Goldmuntz,

Congenital heart defects (CHD) are the most common birth defect and are both clinically and genetically heterogeneous. Truncus arteriosus (TA), characterized by a single arterial vessel arising from both ventricles giving rise to the coronary, pulmonary and systemic arteries, is rare and only responsible for 1% of all CHD. Two ... Read more >>

Truncus arteriosus with retrograde aortic flow: a unique case.

Matthew A Solomon, Bijoy Thattaliyath, Ravi Ashwath,

Truncus arteriosus is a rare cyanotic congenital heart defect that involves septation failure of the heart's main arterial outflow tract. Varying morphologies of the truncal valve and aorta have been reported; however, the ascending aorta is typically supplied via anterograde blood flow through the truncal valve. We present the first ... Read more >>

Inna Ossei, Kwame Ohene Buabeng, Paul Poku Sampene Ossei, Samuel Blay Nguah, William Gilbert Ayibor, Berko Panyin Anto, Agyemang-Duah Eric, Mahama Duwiejua,

Background:Uncorrected congenital heart lesions in children keep them in a state of constant hypoxia with compromised quality of life and reduced life expectancy. This requires early diagnosis and interventions including prevention and treatment of the resultant anaemia. Unfortunately, congenital heart disease (CHD) often goes unrecognized and thus untreated.

Saleh A Alnasser, Angela H Martin, Ourania A Preventza, Joseph S Coselli, Kim I de la Cruz,

Improved management of interrupted aortic arch has increased long-term survival rates. Longer life expectancies in neonates and children surgically treated for interrupted aortic arch may necessitate complex reinterventions when sequelae develop in adulthood. We report the case of a 24-year-old man who had undergone initial repair of interrupted aortic arch ... Read more >>
