    Preparing adolescents with heart problems for transition to adult care, 2009–2010 National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs

    Karrie F. Downing1,2, Matthew E. Oster1,3, Sherry L. Farr1

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.12, No.4, pp. 497-506, 2017, DOI:10.1111/chd.12476

    Abstract Objective: A substantial percentage of children with congenital heart disease (CHD) fail to transfer to adult care, resulting in increased risk of morbidity and mortality. Transition planning discussions with a provider may increase rates of transfer, yet little is known about frequency and content of these discussions. We assessed prevalence and predictors of transition-related discussions between providers and parents of children with special healthcare needs (CSHCN) and heart problems, including CHD.
    Design: Using parent-reported data on 12- to 17-year-olds from the 2009–2010 National Survey of CSHCN, we calculated adjusted prevalence ratios (aPR) for associations between demographic factors… More >

    Talha Niaz1, Joseph T. Poterucha1, Jonathan N. Johnson1,2, Cecilia Craviari1, Thomas Nienaber1, Jared Palfreeman1, Frank Cetta1,2, Donald J. Hagler1,2

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.12, No.3, pp. 261-269, 2017, DOI:10.1111/chd.12429

    Abstract Background: Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) occurs both as an isolated cardiac lesion and in association with congenital heart defects (CHD). Their aim was to identify the incidence and morphology of BAV in patients with coexisting CHD and compare their disease progression to patients with isolated BAV.
    Methods: The Mayo Clinic echocardiography database was retrospectively analyzed to identify pediatric and young adult patients (≤22 years) who were diagnosed with BAV from 1990 to 2015. The morphology of BAV was determined from the echocardiographic studies before any intervention.
    Results: Overall, 1010 patients with BAV were identified, 619 (61%) with isolated… More >

    Ability of noninvasive criteria to predict hemodynamically significant aortic obstruction in adults with coarctation of the aorta

    Marco Astengo1,2*, Caroline Berntsson3*, Åse A. Johnsson3,4, Peter Eriksson1,2, Mikael Dellborg1,2

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.12, No.2, pp. 174-180, 2017, DOI:10.1111/chd.12424

    Abstract Objective: Coarctation of the aorta (CoA) is a common condition. Adult patients with newly diagnosed CoA and patients with recurring or residual CoA require evaluation of the severity of aortic obstruction. Cardiac catheterization is considered the gold standard for the evaluation of hemodynamically significant CoA. The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Guidelines for the management of grown-up congenital heart disease (GUCH) include noninvasive criteria for identifying significant CoA. Our aim was to investigate the ability of the Class I and Class IIa ESC recommendations to identify significant CoA at cardiac catheterization.
    Design: Sixty-six adult patients with native… More >

    Utility of three‐dimensional models in resident education on simple and complex intracardiac congenital heart defects

    Shelby C. White1, Jennifer Sedler2, Trahern W. Jones3, Michael Seckeler1

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.13, No.6, pp. 1045-1049, 2018, DOI:10.1111/chd.12673

    Abstract Objective: Applications of three‐dimensional (3D) printed models in medicine in‐ clude preprocedure planning, patient education, and clinical training. Reproducing complex anatomy as a 3D printed model can be useful for understanding congenital heart defects (CHD). We hypothesized that using 3D printed models during didactic sessions with resident physicians will improve trainees’ understanding of CHD.
    Design and intervention: We performed a prospective, randomized educational in‐ tervention for teaching pediatric and pediatric/emergency medicine residents about simple (ventricular septal defect [VSD]) and moderately complex (tetralogy of Fallot [ToF]) CHD. Residents were divided into two groups: intervention and control. Each group… More >

    Patients with congenital heart defect and their families support genetic heart research

    Paul C. Helm1, Ulrike M. M. Bauer1,2, Hashim Abdul‐Khaliq2,3, Helmut Baumgartner1,4, Hans‐Heiner Kramer5, Christian Schlensak2,7, Thomas Pickardt1, Anne‐Karin Kahlert5,6*, Marc‐Phillip Hitz5*

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.13, No.5, pp. 685-689, 2018, DOI:10.1111/chd.12630

    Abstract Background: Congenital heart disease (CHD) affects up to 1% of live births the etiol‐ ogy remains relatively poorly understood. Thus, cardiac research is needed to under‐ stand the underlying pathomechanisms ofthe disease.About51 000CHDpatients are registered in the German National Register for Congenital Heart Defects (NRCHD). Patients and relatives were interviewed online about their willingness to support ge‐ netic heart research in order to donate a biological sample.
    Methods: Study participants were recruited via the database of the NRCHD. Seven thousand nine hundred eighty‐nine patients were invited to participate in the study. Participants have been asked to rate… More >

    Functional limitations and educational needs among children and adolescents with heart disease

    Sherry L. Farr1, Karrie F. Downing1,2, Tiffany Riehle-Colarusso1, Ginnie Abarbanell1,3

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.13, No.4, pp. 633-639, 2018, DOI:10.1111/chd.12621

    Abstract Objective: To examine how cognitive and motor limitations in children with heart disease are associated with education and participation in extracurricular activities.
    Design: Using 2009–2010 parent-reported data from the National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs (NS-CSHCN), we examined prevalence of five functional limitations (learning/ concentration, communication, self-care, gross motor skills, and fine motor skills) by diagnosed heart disease status using chi-square tests and multivariable logistic regression. Among CSHCN with heart disease, we examined the associations between severity of each functional limitation and missing ≥11 days of school in the past year, receiving special education… More >

    Association between maternal body mass index and congenital heart defects in infants: A meta-analysis

    Yu Zhu1*, Yong Chen1*, Yu Feng2, Di Yu1, Xuming Mo1

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.13, No.2, pp. 271-281, 2018, DOI:10.1111/chd.12567

    Abstract We conducted this meta-analysis to address the open question of a possible association between maternal body mass index (BMI) and congenital heart defects (CHDs) in infants. We conducted a comprehensive computerized search of PubMed, Web of Science, Medline, and Embase databased (January 1980 through August 2017). We assessed the association between maternal BMI and the risk for congenital heart defects in their offspring. Study-specific relative risk estimates were polled according to random-effect or fixed-effect models. From 2567 citations, a total of 13 case-control studies and 4 cohort studies were selected for a meta-analysis, including more… More >

    The 745.5 issue in code-based, adult congenital heart disease population studies: Relevance to current and future ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM studies

    Fred H. Rodriguez III1,2,3,4, Georges Ephrem1,2, Jennifer F. Gerardin1,2, Cheryl Raskind-Hood5, Carol Hogue5, Wendy Book1,2

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.13, No.1, pp. 59-64, 2018, DOI:10.1111/chd.12563

    Abstract Objective: Although the ICD-9-CM code 745.5 is widely used to indicate the presence of a secundum atrial septal defect (ASD), it is also used for patent foramen ovale (PFO) which is a normal variant and for “rule-out” congenital heart disease (CHD). The ICD-10-CM code Q21.1 perpetuates this issue. The objective of this study was to assess whether code 745.5 in isolation or in combination with unspecified CHD codes 746.9 or 746.89 miscodes for CHD, and if true CHD positives decrease with age.
    Design: Echocardiograms of patients with an ICD-9-CM code of 745.5 in isolation or in combination… More >

    Natasa Karadzov Orlic1, Amira Egic1, Barbara Damnjanovic‐Pazin MD2 | Relja Lukic1, Ivana Joksic3, Zeljko Mikovic1

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.14, No.6, pp. 1094-1101, 2019, DOI:10.1111/chd.12852

    Abstract Objective: The objective of this study was to analyze if the addition of simple cardiac scan in cases with increased nuchal translucency (NT) and/or abnormal ductus venosus (DV) blood flow, and/or tricuspid regurgitation (TCR) can improve detection of congenital heart defects (CHD) in chromosomally normal fetuses without non‐ cardiac defects at 11‐13 + 6 gestational weeks in a population of singleton pregnancies.
    Methods: During the 10 years period, all singleton pregnancies at 11‐13 + 6 weeks were routinely scanned for NT, DV blood flow and TCR assessment and, if a sin‐ gle of these parameters was abnormal,… More >
