    Abstract Clinical research in the treatment of patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) is limited by the wide variety of CHD manifestations and therapeutic options as well as the generally low incidence of CHD. The availability of comprehensive, contemporary outcomes studies is therefore limited. This inadequacy may result in a lack of data‐driven medical decision making. In 2013, clinician scientists at two centers begana researchcollaboration,the Congenital Catheterization Research Collaborative (CCRC). Over time, the CCRC has grown to include nine cardiac centers from across the United States, with a common data coordinating center. The CCRC seeks to… More >

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.14, No.2, pp. 305-310, 2019, DOI:10.1111/chd.12732

    Abstract Objective: The current study aims to identify the rates of lapses in care and loss to follow‐up before age one through age five for white and nonwhite congenital heart disease (CHD) survivors. Nonwhite CHD survivors were hypothesized to experience an earlier lapse in care and be lost to follow‐up than whites.
    Design: Patients were from a large pediatric hospital and had (1) at least one outpa‐ tient cardiology clinic visit or cardiac surgery visit before the age of one and (2) a di‐ agnosis of moderate or complex structural CHD. Cardiology outpatient utilization rates were tracked from… More >

    A Method for the Verification of Structural Integrity of Lower Limbs Prostheses

    C. Colombo1, E.G. Marchesin1, L. Vergani1,2, E. Boccafogli3, G. Verni3

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.8, No.4, pp. 307-328, 2012, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2012.008.307

    Abstract In this study an experimental device for testing the structural integrity of lower limb (transtibial and transfemoral) prostheses is proposed and studied, in accordance with the ISO 10328 Standard. Aim of the development of this device is to mechanically test these kinds of prostheses, for claiming the compliance with the standard. In the first part of the paper, experimental setup of the laboratory is described for the different kinds of prescribed tests. In the second part, the test case of a transtibial prosthesis for children is proposed. After verifying the compliance with the standard of More >
