Development of a Novel Piglet Model to Simulate the Physiology of a Child with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome during the First Interstage for Investigating Changes in Tricuspid Valve as it Adapts to a High-pressure and High-volume Stress EnvironmentDownload
INTRODUCTION: Tricuspid valve (TV) failure develops in 25-35% of children with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and is a risk factor for morbidity and mortality. The mechanisms underlying TV failure in HLHS are not well understood. There is no effective medical therapy and current surgical...
The purpose of the study was to conceptualize the needs of parents of young children with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) to provide a theoretical framework to informthe development of future parent interventions. Participants were parents and grandparents (n = 53) of 15 young children who...
Functional outcomes after neonatal open cardiac surgery: comparison of survivors of the Norwood staged procedure and the arterial switch operationDownload
Background: Improvements in long-term survival of children undergoing the Norwood staged procedure and the arterial switch operation have resulted in the need to prepare these at-risk children for each stage of their developmental trajectory, including school readiness. This study describes and...
Is "treat your child normally" helpful advice for parents of survivors of treatment of hypoplastic left heart syndrome?Download
BACKGROUND: Developing technology affords children with complex congenitally malformed hearts a chance for survival. Parents gratefully pursue life-saving options on behalf of their children, despite the risks to the life of their child, and uncertainty about outcomes. Little is known about how...
The purpose of this study is to describe the process of parenting a child with life-threatening heart disease. Despite advances in pediatric cardiac sciences, hypoplastic left heart syndrome remains difficult and controversial to treat. The Norwood surgical approach is a developing technology,...
