  • NK Najm, WG Williams, S Chuaratanaphong, et al (Univ of Toronto)

    Primum Atrial Septal Defect in Children: Early Results, Risk Factors, and Freedom From Reoperation.

    Ann Thorac Surg 66: 829-835, 1998.

        

    Children with primum atrial septal defect are at risk of early death and develop congestive cardiac failure (CCF). Operative mortality is very high, the most important factor being the age of 1 year of less.

        
  • BE Miller, SR Tosone, VKH Tam, et al (Emory Univ, Atlanta, Ga)

    Hematologic and Economic Impact of Aprotinin in Reoperative Pediatric Cardiac Operations.

    Ann Thorac Surg 66: 535-541, 1998.

        

    Studies have shown that aprotinin reduces blood loss and transfusion requirements in adult patients after cardiopulmonary bypass. The same is true in paediatric patients.

        
  • RE Tanel, EP Walsh, JK Triedman, et la (Children’s Hosp, Boston; Harvard Med School, Boston)

    Five-Year Experience with Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation: Implications for Management of Arrhythmias in Pediatric and Young Adult Patients.

    J Pediatr 131: 878-887, 1997

        

    The transcatheter delivery of radiofrequency energy has revolutionized the care of patients with most mechanisms of supraventricular or ventricular tachycardia. 

       

    The success rate is very high and there are no serious complications, regardless of whether their rhythm disturbance is simple or complex.
