Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries
(ccTGA) is characterized by atrioventricular and ventriculoarterial discordance. It represents a rare cardiac
defect, accounting for 1.1% of cases of major congenital
heart disease (CHD), and has an incidence at birth of
0.02 per 1000 live births. Prenatal diagnosis of this
lesion is feasible but may be difficult to detect at routine
screening because the atrioventricular discordance may
be overlooked if other significant anomalies of the fourchamber
view are absent.
Familial Origin of Atrial Septal Aneurysm
Ioannis A. Paraskevaidis, MDa,b,*, Dimitrios Tsiapras, MDa, Stamatis Kyrzopoulos, MDa,
and Dimitrios T. Kremastinos, MDb
The familial origin of atrial septal defects has been previously reported.
This is the first study describing 2 families with atrial septal aneurysm of familial origin.
Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) is a multisystem genetic disorder caused by a microdeletion on chromosome 7. The majority of patients demonstrate cardiovascular pathology, most commonly supravalvular aortic and/or other vascular stenoses……………

Deletion 22q11.2 syndrome (Del22) (DiGeorge/Velo-Cardio-Facial syndrome) is characterized by congenital heart defect (CHD), palatal anomalies, facial dysmorphisms, neonatal hypocalcemia, immune deficit, speech and learning disabilities. CHD is present in 75% of patients with Del22.
If you have congenital heart disease, print out this information and give it to your physician. You can also download a PDF version of the wallet card from AHA.
Antibiotic therapy must be practiced for prophylaxis of the bacterial endocarditis, every tyme the patient must be take surgical manipulations as of diagnostic or therapeutic type, as is indicated in the attached outline.
DOPPLER CLASSIFICATION OF PATENT DUCTUS ARTERIOSUS
IN ?NEWBORN INFANTS : PREDICTIVITY OF SPONTANEOUS VERSUS TERAPEUTIC CLOSURE

Diastolic ductal steal in newborns with patent ductus ?arteriosus (PDA) ?may generate distrectual ischemia. The AA. propose a Doppler derived classification of five types of fluximetric patterns correlated semiquanitatively to the entity of ductal shunt wich may affect the clinical outcome and management.

The purpose of this study was to quantify the echocardiographic abnormalities in probands
who were newly diagnosed with arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD).
BACKGROUND The diagnosis of ARVD remains challenging. The Multidisciplinary Study of Right
Ventricular Dysplasia was initiated to characterize the cardiac structural, clinical, and genetic
aspects of ARVD
