    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.18, No.3, pp. 349-359, 2023, DOI:10.32604/chd.2023.028391

    Abstract Background: Parents of children with complex right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) anomalies are confronted with their child’s need for heart surgery early in life and repeated reoperations later on. Preoperative assessment needs to be performed whenever an indication for reoperation is suspected. The aim was to illuminate the experiences of parents of children diagnosed with RVOT anomalies, in particular, how they experience their child’s heart disease and everyday life during the assessment and after the decision on whether to perform a reoperation. Method: Individual interviews (n = 27) were conducted with nine parents on three occasions between… More >

    Abstract Young children’s reputation management is closely related to their social development. The purpose of our study is to examine the interaction between theory of mind and partner choice on children’s reputation management. Participants consisted of 270 children who were 3 to 5 years old. First, we measured participants’ theory of mind capabilities using the unexpected location task and unexpected content task and then randomly divided the participants into the control group, non-partner–choice group, and partner-choice group. We measured reputation management by comparing children’s willingness to share and sharing behavior between these groups. The findings are… More > Graphic Abstract

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.25, No.6, pp. 735-754, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ijmhp.2023.026440

    Abstract A healthy psychological state is the premise for children to carry out various activities. Previous surveys have shown that children with special needs are affected by their own obstacles and are more prone to psychological problems such as sensitivity, low self-esteem, and impulsiveness. Therefore, it is necessary to provide more systematic mental health education support for special children. Mental health education programs are an efficient form of maintaining children’s mental health. However, in the field of special education, the number of mental health education courses developed according to the physical and mental characteristics and developmental… More >

Methods: According to the risk stratification criteria, the cases were divided into the following four risk groups: low, standard, high, and very high. The 5-year overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) rates were summarized. Further, the effects on the prognosis of tumor size, tumor stage, degree of resection, treatment mode, metastatic recurrence, molecular typing, and risk stratification were analyzed. Results: In the present study, following… More >

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.18, No.1, pp. 23-39, 2023, DOI:10.32604/chd.2023.026026

    Abstract Background: Prolonged preoperative fasting can cause hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, and intravascular volume depletion in children. We aimed to examine whether prolonged preoperative fasting is associated with in-hospital mortality and other morbidities in pediatric cardiothoracic surgery. Methods: This retrospective cohort study included children aged 0–3 years who underwent cardiac surgery between July 2014 and October 2020. The patient demographic data, surgery-related and anesthesia-related factors, and postoperative outcomes, including hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, sepsis, length of intensive care unit stay, and in-hospital mortality, were recorded. The main exposure and outcome variables were prolonged fasting and time-to-death after surgery, respectively. The associations between… More > Graphic Abstract
