Ten-years, single-center experience with Melody TPV implantation: early outcomes and mid-term follow-up
Anno:
2023
OBJECTIVES. Melody TPV is the first percutaneous valvular bio-prosthesis approved for trans-catheter pulmonary valve implantation (TPVI). We describe our ten-years experience about Melody TPV implantation in patients with congenital heart disease (CHD). METHODS. This is an observational retrospective single-center study. All patients undergone Melody TPV implantation were included. The early outcomes…
L’adattamento del circolo polmonare e del cuore destro in uno shunt intracardiaco inveterato. Under pressure or let it flow?
Anno:
2023
Uno shunt intracardiaco significativo può favorire nel tempo lo sviluppo di ipertensione polmonare (IP) e rimodellamento delle sezioni cardiache di destra. Tuttavia, l’adattamento del circolo polmonare e del cuore destro nelle cardiopatie congenite è estremamente variabile, con necessità di caratterizzazione accurata per meglio decidere l’iter terapeutico. PRESENTAZIONE DEL CASO…
Electrophysiological assessment of atrial tachycardia substrates in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot
Anno:
2023
Introduction Adults with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rToF) experience episodes of atrial tachycardia (AT) and radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) is often required but systematic evaluation of the mechanisms and recurrences is lacking.  Methods Between January 2013 and October 2021, 20 rToF patients with AT referred for catheter ablation were enrolled. Electrophysiologic study with…
Multi-Institutional Italian Experience of Atrial Flow Regulator Device in Congenital and Acquired Heart Disease
Anno:
2023
The Atrial Flow Regulator is a self-expandable nitinol device implanted into the interatrial septum to establish a communication with a predetermined diameter.The creation of such shunt is advisable in several cardiovascular diseases.In pediatric population,the experience is limited to a few case reports describing patients with failing Fontan,pulmonary hypertension,or severe heart…
ATRIAL SEPTAL ABNORMALITIES: A CASE OF DOUBLE INTERATRIAL SEPTUM
Anno:
2023
The Case A 41-year-old asymptomatic male was referred to our cardiology outpatient clinic for diagnostic evaluation of a suspected bicuspid aortic valve at transthoracic echocardiography. Trans-oesophageal imaging ruled-out the bicuspid aortic valve, but detected an accessory membrane lining the interatrial septum with a double-layered appearance encompassing most of the…
Relationship between echocardiographic data and cardiopulmonary exercise test parameters in adult congenital heart disease patients: a retrospective clinical study
Anno:
2023
Introduction:The interpretation of cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) in adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) is challenging because of the high variability in cardiac lesions and because the poor exercise tolerance is often associated with abnormal heart function. The aim of this work is to study the correlation between echocardiographic evaluation and CPET parameters…
