1. Across all age groups at the time of diagnosis, younger gestational ages were associated with an increased risk of developing heart failure later in life. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: Preterm birth is an extremely common condition affecting mothers worldwide. The association between preterm birth and various cardiac...
1. Neurodevelopmental screening at 14 months of age had poor positive predictive value of adaptive behavior deficits at age six years. 2. At six years of age, adaptive behavior skills in children with single ventricle physiology were significantly delayed compared to population norms. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: Despite improvement...
1. In a case-control study of children in the Military Health System database, congenital heart disease (CHD) and cardiac surgery were associated with higher odds of autism spectrum disorder (AuSD) diagnosis. 2. Odds of AuSD diagnosis were significantly higher in children with atrial septal defect (ASD) and ventral septal defect...
Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is the most common congenital cyanotic heart disease. Surgical repair of TOF was shown in 1954 to have a long-term survival rate of 77%, however, more recent estimates of long-term survival have been biased by selection, differences in treatment strategies, and variation in health care...
1. Congenital heart surgery (CHS) in patients with trisomy 13 (T13) and trisomy 18 (T18) was significantly associated with a reduction in in-hospital mortality compared to patients who did not undergo CHS. There was no significant difference in in-patient mortality for T13 and T18 patients without congenital heart disease...
1. Although children with congenital heart disease (CHD) performed worse than matched controls on intelligence assessments at ages 4 and 7, relative improvement was observed at age 7. 2. Motor coordination, working memory, inhibition, and cognitive flexibility were not significantly different between children with CHD and matched controls at the...
