bouddjemlineMehul Patel photoComment from Pr. Younes Boudjemline (Paris) and co-editor Dr. Mehul Patel (Grand Rapids MI), editors of congenital heart disease interventions Journal Watch: The transhepatic approach for paediatric cardiac catheterization was first reported by Shim et al and Johnson et al and has now become a well-recognized access route for both diagnostic and interventional cardiac procedures in patients where there is no remaining entry point to the central venous system. This approach offers a viable alternative to thoracotomy and direct atrial line catheter access in pediatric patients with multiple previous line failures and associated thrombosis.  The authors retrospectively studied the outcomes of 92 transhepatic central venous catheter placement at a tertiary care center. The success rates were more than 95% and the complications included catheter dysfunction, dislodgement, systemic infection, thrombosis, local infection, and bleeding. The authors concluded that transhepatic central venous catheters is a viable option and the complication rates increase beyond 21 days. The higher complication rates with time may be more reflective of the sicker patient population in which this is indicated and used and not on the site of venous access or the technique.

Take home points:

  1. Transhepatic central venous catheters represent a viable option for patients with limited access.
  2. Polyurethane catheters and catheter duration at least 21 days are associated with increased transhepatic central venous catheter complications.

Comment from Pr. Younes Boudjemline (Paris) and co-editor Dr. Mehul Patel (Grand Rapids MI), editors of congenital heart disease interventions Journal Watch: Patients with single ventricle and TCPC are at increased risk of atrial arrhythmia with age. Transbaffle puncture and access to the pulmonary venous atrium (PVA) may be required for mapping the atrium and ablation. In this interesting study the authors studied CT scans of 37 patients with extra cardiac TCPC to identify an area of contact between the IVC and PVA.  Ten of 37 patients were  noted to have a clinically relevant ( > 3 mm) cavoatrial overlap of which 3 patients underwent successful transcaval puncture without complication. The presence of cavoatrial overlap seems to be a function of time lapsed after surgery especially in children.

Take home points:

  1. It may be worthwhile identifying cavoatrial overlap in patients with extra cardiac TCPC on CT scan and this may be important for the reader to routinely look for and report.
  2. Prevalence of such overlap increases with time and is seen in virtually all patients 8 years after surgery when performed early in life.
  3. Patients operated during adulthood do not appear to develop this region of overlap as commonly, although it may still be encountered in individual cases.

 

3. Extracardiac Fontan fenestration using the SafeSept transseptal guidewire and snare-controlled diabolo-shaped covered-stent placement.

Comment from Pr. Younes Boudjemline (Paris) and co-editor Dr. Mehul Patel (Grand Rapids MI), editors of congenital heart disease interventions Journal Watch: Fenestrating the Fontan pathway is usually considered in the management of failing fontan circulation, persistent pleural effusions, protein loosing enteropathy and plastic bronchitis. A small subset of patients with failing Fontan physiology despite preserved ventricular function and reasonable hemodynamics may also benefit from fenestration to improve cardiac output.  Fenestrating an extra cardiac Fontan pathway may be tricky as the needle has to traverse the stiff Gore-Tex baffle, transit the extracardiac space, re-enter the cardiac structures, followed by covered stent implantation without leading to exsanguination. Importantly sizing the fenestration in vitro such that it is large enough to remain patent, but small enough to assure adequate saturations, is crucial. The authors report a novel technique for transcatheter extracardiac Fontan fenestration using the SafeSept transseptal guidewire and snare-controlled diabolo-shaped 7 x16 mm iCast covered stent placement in a 3.5 year old child.

Take home points:

  1. SafeSept transseptal guidewire and snare-controlled covered stent placement may be used for extra cardiac Fontan fenestration.
  2. Deformation of this 014 nitinol guidewire is likely to improve safety while crossing.
  3. The authors report that utilization of the SafeSept transseptal guidewire not only minimized the pressure needed to perforate the Gore-Tex baffle, avoiding separation of the Fontan baffle from the atrium, but also provided a rail for the needle to follow.

Comment from Pr. Younes Boudjemline (Paris) and co-editor Dr. Mehul Patel (Grand Rapids MI), editors of congenital heart disease interventions Journal Watch:  Radiation protection is a serious issue for everyone in the cath lab and not only for patients.  Children are uniquely more susceptible to the harmful effects of ionizing radiation as their tissues are more sensitive and they live longer and have more time to manifest deleterious effects. The authors studied the impact of reducing fluoroscopic frame rate from 7.5 to 4 frames/sec for ASD device closure in demographically matching 2 groups of 20 patients each. The dose area product (DAP), normalized DAP to body weight, total radiation time and fluoro time were lower in the 4 fps group but not statistically different than the 7.5 fps. There was a trend toward decreased radiation exposure as measured by indexed DAP although not statistically significant in this small study.

Take home points:

  1. There are many avenues to reduce the radiation exposure through system and workflow adaptations and through the use of non-fluoroscopic imaging techniques.
  2. A reduction of the occupational and the procedural doses by a factor of 10 to even 100 can be achieved simply by an intensive radio- protection training programs.
  3. Fluoroscopy at 4 fps can be safe and effective for ASD device closure in children and adults. There was no increase in procedure time, cine time, fluoro time or complications at this slow fluoro rate.
  4. There was a trend toward decreased radiation exposure as measured by indexed DAP although not statistically significant in this small study.
