    Transport of extremely low birth weight neonates for persistent ductus arteriosus closure in the catheterization lab

    Adam Willis, Lillia Pereiras, Tim Head, Genevieve Dupuis, Janet Sessums, Gordon Corder, Kim Graves, Jack Tipton, Shyam Sathanandam

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.14, No.1, pp. 69-73, 2019, DOI:10.1111/chd.12706

    Abstract Objective: The objective of this article is to describe the elements involved with transporting extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants from referring centers to our center’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and then from the NICU to the catheterization lab for transcatheter closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA).
    Setting: Several referring centers are over 300 miles away. ELBW infants are transferred in to our NICU safely for the procedure and transferred back following the procedure. A multidisciplinary team approach is necessary in order to achieve a safe transport of these fragile patients.
    Patients: To date, we have over 12 centers… More >

    Can transcatheter PDA closure be performed in neonates ≤1000 grams? The Memphis experience

    Shyam Sathanandam, Hitesh Agrawal, Sandeep Chilakala , Jason Johnson, Kimberly Allen, Christopher Knott‐Craig, B. Rush Waller, Ranjit Philip

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.14, No.1, pp. 79-84, 2019, DOI:10.1111/chd.12700

    Abstract Objective: Advancements in transcatheter technology have now made it possible to safely close patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants. The objective of this article is to describe our technique for transcatheter PDA closure (TCPC) in ELBW infants.
    Design: The techniques employed are very specific to this population and are drasti‐ cally different when compared to the procedure performed in patients weighing >5 kg.
    Setting: A multidisciplinary team approach should be taken to evaluate and manage ELBW infants in order to achieve success. It is important that specific techniques with venous‐only approach outlined in this article… More >

    Surgical outcome in pediatric patients with Ebstein’s anomaly: A multicenter, long-term study

    Lianne M. Geerdink1,2, Gideon J. du Marchie Sarvaas3, Irene M. Kuipers4, Willem A. Helbing5, Tammo Delhaas6, Henriette ter Heide7, Lieke Rozendaal8, Chris L. de Korte9, Sandeep K. Singh10, Tjark Ebels11, Mark G. Hazekamp12, Felix Haas13, Ad J. J. C. Bogers14, Livia Kapusta1,15

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.12, No.1, pp. 32-39, 2017

    Abstract Objective: Surgical outcomes of pediatric patients with Ebstein’s anomaly are often described as part of all-age-inclusive series. Our objective is to focus on patients treated surgically in childhood (0-18 y). We study the intended treatment (biventricular or 1.5 ventricle repair or univentricular palliation), freedom from unplanned reoperation and survival of this specific age group, in a nationwide study.
    Design: Records of all Ebstein’s anomaly patients born between 1980 and 2013 were reviewed. Demographic variables, intraoperative procedures and postoperative outcomes were analyzed.
    Results: Sixty-three patients underwent 109 operations. Median follow-up after diagnosis was 121 months (range 0-216 months). Twenty-nine (46%) patients… More >
