Importance of pulmonary valve morphology for pulmonary valve preservation in tetralogy of Fallot surgery: comparison of the echocardiographic parameters
Su Jin Choi, Jung Eun Kwon, Da Eun Roh, Myung Chul Hyun, Hanna Jung, Young Ok Lee, Joon Yong Cho, Yeo Hyang Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2020;63(5):189-194.   Published online November 8, 2019
Question: Is echocardiographic examination is useful for surgical method decision in patients with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF)?
Finding: Various echocardiographic parameters serve as predictors for determining surgical methods for TOF patients. However, the PV morphology and tissue characteristics should also be considered.
Meaning: A full dependence on the size of the pulmonary valve annulus (PVA), the z score, and the ratio of the size of PVA to aortic valve annulus or descending aorta surgery may result in inadequate surgical results during TOF total correction.
Impact of postoperative duration of Aspirin use on longevity of bioprosthetic pulmonary valve in patients who underwent congenital heart disease repair

Purpose

Generally, aspirin is used as a protective agent against thrombogenic phenomenon after pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) using a bioprosthetic valve. However, the appropriate duration of aspirin use is unclear. We analyzed the impact of postoperative duration of aspirin use on the longevity of bioprosthetic pulmonary valves in patients who underwent repair for congenital heart diseases.

We retrospectively reviewed the clinical data...

Alagille syndrome and a JAG1 mutation: 41 cases of experience at a single center
Kyung Jin Ahn, Ja Kyoung Yoon, Gi Beom Kim, Bo Sang Kwon, Jung Min Go, Jin Su Moon, Eun Jung Bae, Chung Il Noh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2015;58(10):392-397.   Published online October 21, 2015
Purpose

Alagille syndrome is a complex hereditary disorder that is associated with cardiac, hepatic, skeletal, ocular, and facial abnormalities. Mutations in the Notch signaling pathway, such as in JAG1 and NOTCH2, play a key role in embryonic development. A cardiac or hepatic presentation is a critical factor for determining the prognosis.

Methods

We conducted a retrospective study of 41 patients with Alagille syndrome...

Early and mid-term results of pulmonary valve reconstruction in surgical repair of tetralogy of Fallot; comparison with other techniques of right ventricular outflow reconstruction
Sheng Wen Wang, Young Seok Lee, Si Ho Kim, Tae Hong Kim, Ji Eun Ban, Hyoung Doo Lee, Yun Hee Chang, Si Chan Sung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(6):635-642.   Published online June 15, 2006
Purpose : The purpose of this study is to determine whether the new pulmonary valve reconstruction technique prevents short-term postoperative pulmonary regurgitation and improves early and mid-term clinical outcome. Methods : We reviewed postoperative echocardiographic variables and chest X-ray films from 31 patients who had undergone valve reconstruction(pulmonary valve reconstruction group : PVR) for the repair of TOF between April 2000...
Case Report
Pulmonary Valve Absence and Tetralogy of Fallot in CATCH 22
Hye-Young Ryu, Byoung-Lo Jin, Jin-Man Kim, Hong-Ryang Kil
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(1):137-140.   Published online January 15, 2002
Congenital absence of the pulmonary valve associated with Tetralogy of Fallot(TOF) is a relatively rare cardiac malformation. In the majority of cases, this lesion is associated with ventricular septal defect, obstructive pulmonary valve annulus, and massive dilatation of the pulmonary arteries. This combination of lesions is often called tetralolgy of Fallot and absent pulmonary valve. Although survival beyond infancy is frequent, a number of...

Percutaneous Transluminal Balloon Valvuloplasty for Congenital Pulmonary Valve Stenosis.
Heung Jae Lee, Jae Kon Ko, Woong Heum Kim, Nam Su Kim, Chang yee Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1988;31(7):822-832.   Published online July 31, 1988
During the period of 2 years, between January 1986 and December 1987, 36 patients, aged 2 years to 18 years, with congenital pulmonary valve stenosis(PVS) (with peak systolic transvalvar gradient over 30 mmHg) underwent percutaneous transluminal balloon valvuloplasty(TBV) at Sejong General Hospital m Korea. Of a group of 36 patients, 26 were treated successfully by the conventional balloon valve dilatation technique, and 6 were treated...
