    Initiating a Fontan multidisciplinary clinic: Decreasing care variability, improving surveillance, and subsequent treatment of Fontan survivors

    Michael V. Di Maria1, Cindy Barrett1, Carey Rafferty1, Kelly Wolfe1, Sarah L. Kelly1, Deborah R. Liptzin2, Dania Brigham3, Adel Younoszai1

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.14, No.4, pp. 590-599, 2019, DOI:10.1111/chd.12769

    Abstract Background: Children with single ventricle (SV) heart disease who undergo Fontan operation are at risk for developing multiorgan dysfunction. Although survival has improved, significant comorbidities involving multiple organ systems may develop, requiring evaluation and management by many subspecialists. Using data from an internal survey, we documented high care variability for our Fontan population. We then developed a multidisciplinary clinic, designed and implemented a clinical care pathway to decrease variability of patient assessment.
    Methods: After creating a multidisciplinary team and a clinical care pathway, we initiated a multidisciplinary clinic (MDC) where patients could see multiple subspecialists during a… More >

    Delayed puberty and abnormal anthropometry and its associations with quality of life in young Fontan survivors: A multicenter cross-sectional study

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.13, No.3, pp. 463-469, 2018, DOI:10.1111/chd.12597

    Abstract Introduction: We sought to evaluate the prevalence of delayed puberty and abnormal anthropometry and its association with quality of life (QoL) in young Fontan survivors.
    Methods: This was a cross-sectional study at 11 Pediatric Heart Network centers. Demographic and clinical data, anthropomety, and Tanner stage were collected. Anthropometric measurements and pubertal stage were compared to US norms. QoL was assessed using Pediatric Quality of Life inventory (PedsQL). Mixed effects regression modeling adjusting for clustering by center was used to evaluate factors associated with abnormal anthropometry and delayed puberty and associations with QoL.
    Results: Of the 299 subjects, 42%… More >

    Impact of War Related Mental Disorders on Partners

    Batool Mousavi1,*, Marziye Asgari2, Mohammadreza Soroush2, Reza Amini3, Ali Montazeri4

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.22, No.1, pp. 11-17, 2020, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2020.010901

    Abstract Mental disorders tend to be highly prevalent in war survivors. This paper examined the long-term impact of psychiatric disorders of war survivors on the level of health vulnerability among their female spouses. Interviews were conducted with a nationally representative sample of 653 of the partners of male war survivors with disabilities. The war survivors’ database information used to determine the presence of psychiatric disorders. Then the partners of survivors with (N = 333) and without (N = 320) psychological disorders were assessed via the health-related quality of life (HRQOL-SF36) questionnaire. The frequency of depression and… More >

    The Mediating Role of Job Satisfaction in the Relationship between Disaster Relief Workers’ Perception of Survivors’ Rights and Their Performance of Human Rights Advocacy

    Yun-Jung Choi#, Eunjung Ko#,*

    International Journal of Mental Health Promotion, Vol.22, No.1, pp. 19-27, 2020, DOI:10.32604/IJMHP.2020.010883

    Abstract This study aimed to investigate the mediating effect of disaster relief workers’ job satisfaction in the relationship between their perception of survivors’ rights and their performance of human rights advocacy. Two hundred disaster relief workers in Korea were invited to complete structured questionnaires pertaining to their perception of survivors’ rights, job satisfaction, and their performance of human rights advocacy, and the relationships between these variables were analyzed using correlation and multiple regression analysis. There were significant positive correlations between disaster relief workers’ perception of survivors’ rights, job satisfaction, and performance of human rights advocacy in More >

    Racial disparities in clinic follow‐up early in life among survivors of congenital heart disease

    Jamie L. Jackson1, Jennifer Morack2, Millie Harris2, Jennifer DeSalvo3, Curt J. Daniels4, Deena J. Chisolm2

    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 >

    Neurocognitive and executive functioning in adult survivors of congenital heart disease

    Leda Klouda1, Wayne J. Franklin1, Anita Saraf1,2, Dhaval R. Parekh1, David D. Schwartz3

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.12, No.1, pp. 91-98, 2017

    Abstract Objective: Congenital heart disease (CHD) can affect the developing central nervous system, resulting in neurocognitive and behavioral deficits. Preoperative neurological abnormalities as well as sequelae of the open heart operations required to correct structural abnormalities of the heart contribute to these deficits. There are few studies examining the neurocognitive functioning of adults with CHD. This study sought to investigate multiple domains of neurocognitive functioning in adult survivors of CHD who had childhood cardiac surgery with either moderate or severe disease complexity.
    Design: A total of 48 adults (18–49 years of age) who had undergone cardiac surgery for… More >

    Late gadolinium enhancement and adverse outcomes in a contemporary cohort of adult survivors of tetralogy of Fallot

    Richard J. Dobson1, Ify Mordi2, Mark H. Danton1, Niki L. Walker1, Hamish A. Walker1, Nikolaos Tzemos2

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.12, No.1, pp. 58-66, 2017

    Abstract Objective: Myocardial fibrosis has been associated with poorer outcomes in tetralogy of Fallot, however only a handful of studies have assessed its significance in the current era. Our aim was to quantify the amount of late gadolinium enhancement in both the LV and RV in a contemporary cohort of adults with surgically repaired tetralogy of Fallot, and assess the relationship with adverse clinical outcomes.
    Design: Single centre cohort study
    Setting: National tertiary referral center
    Patients: One hundred fourteen patients with surgically repaired tetralogy of Fallot with median age 29.5 years (range 17.5-64.2). Prospective follow-up for mean 2.4 years (SD… More >
