Abstract

Recent reports suggest worse outcomes in pediatric orthotopic heart transplantation (OHT) for congenital heart disease (CHD) and restrictive cardiomyopathy (RCM). We examined early outcomes in these diverse groups of patients in comparison with patients with dilatated cardiomyopathy (DC...read more

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Heterotaxy Syndrome

Heterotaxy syndrome is a rare condition in which abdominal organs are formed in abnormal locations within the chest cavity. Discover the latest research on heterotaxy syndrome here.

Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome

Recent surgical advances have led to an increase in the survival rates of infants born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, which is the incomplete formation of the left side of the heart. Discover the latest research here.

Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension results in increased pulmonary arterial pressures and pulmonary vascular resistance, commonly from cardiac and respiratory diseases. As a result of the structural and functional changes, right heart failure can occur, leading to premature death. Here is the latest research on pulmonary hypertension.

Immunosuppression

Immunosuppression trends for solid organ transplantation have undergone a perceptible shift over the past decade. Discover the latest research on immunosuppression here.

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.

Transposition of Great Vessels

Transposition of Great Vessels is a congenital heart defect in which the positions of the pulmonary artery and aorta are switched. Surgery is used to correct this defect in newborns. Discover the latest research on Transposition of Great Vessels here.

Graft Rejection

Graft rejection occurs when the donor's grafted tissue is rejected by the recipient's immune system, destroying the transplanted tissue. Discover the latest research on graft rejection here.

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Congenital Heart Disease

Congenital heart diseases are present since birth and are a result of improper development of the heart. Prenatal diagnosis on screening ultrasound can detect these defects and better techniques for surgical repair have improved the life expectancy of those born with these diseases. Discover the latest research on congenital heart diseases here.

Immune Tolerance

Immune tolerance happens when the immune system is not responsive to a substance or organism and does not elicit an immune response. This is a normal physiological response for some antigens, especially when detecting self from non-self. This has been a potential area of therapy for some disorders. Here is the latest research on immune tolerance.

Heart Transplantation

Heart transplantation is a surgical means of replacing a recipient's heart with a healthier organ. Find the latest research in heart transplantation here.
