  1. The novel method combining CMR and computational ventricular modeling sheds light on predictors of right ventricular response to PVR among post TOF repair population.
  2. Pre-PVR right ventricular stress is the most important single factor to predict right ventricular response.
  3. Patients with high right ventricular stress appears to have poor right ventricular response to PVR.

Dr. Honjo 9-2015-2Comment from Dr. Osami Honjo (Toronto), section editor of Congenital Heart Surgery Journal Watch: This is a sophisticated proof-of-concept study to delineate the MRI-derived predictors for right ventricular positive vs. negative response to pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) among post tetralogy repair patients. This study is quite important in the sense that we all see both positive and negative responses of the right ventricular performance after PVR but we really don’t’ have any clue to predict who is going to respond to PVR. This study extracted data from 16 patients’ cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) images and created computational ventricular modeling. Among the parameters examined, including right ventricular stress, strain, wall thickness, curvature, and volume, right ventricular wall stress showed the largest difference between responder and non-responder to PVR. Pre-PVR right ventricular stress is the best single predictor of right ventricular response, and combination of wall thickness, curvature, volume, and strain is the best combined predictor with the an area under the ROC curve of 0.848. This method can be effectively used to predict who is going to respond to PVR, but the real potential value is to use this method to determine the timing of PVR before the right ventricle becomes unresponsive to surgical intervention.

  1. Extensive patching for hypoplastic branch PAs in primary tetralogy repair brings improved short-term geometry, but is associated with higher re-stenosis and re-intervention rates.
  2. The majority of hypoplastic ‘untreated’ branch PAs have catch-up growth after repair
  3. Conservative approach to those branch PAs may be an option as long as right ventricular pressure is acceptable.

Comment from Dr. Osami Honjo (Toronto), section editor of Congenital Heart Surgery Journal Watch: Primary repair for tetralogy of Fallot often faces the challenge of hypoplastic branch pulmonary arteries (PAs), which may be a cause of postoperative right ventricular hypertension after repair. Wilder and the Toronto group analyzed the effect of limited vs. extensive patch reconstruction of such hypoplastic branch PAs regarding subsequent growth potential after reconstruction. This is a well-designed retrospective study including 434 patients from The Hospital for Sick Children. The study showed that extensive PA patching improves short-term PA geometry but may lead to late stenosis and increase in re-intervention rate. The vast majority (up to 85%) of hypoplastic PAs that were not intervened at the time of repair had adequate catch-up growth. The message from the investigators is that a conservative approach may not be a bad option as long as right ventricular pressure is acceptable. This study helps us guiding our intraoperative decision making for patients with borderline branch PAs. One personal comment is that many of extensive patching were necessary at the time of surgery to relieve hemodynamically significant obstruction. I suspect that branch PA tissue in such hypoplastic PAs can be intrinsically different from other moderately hypoplastic PAs with no important hemodynamic obstruction.

 

3. Postoperative Outcomes of Children With Tetralogy of Fallot, Pulmonary Atresia, and Major Aortopulmonary Collaterals Undergoing Reconstruction of Occluded Pulmonary Artery Branches.

  1. With an experienced surgical program, occluded MAPCAs or pulmonary arteries are rehabilitatable by unifocalization.
  2. With unifocalization, more than three quarters of the previously-occluded MAPCAs remain patent.
  3. Despite occluded MAPCAs, approximately 70% of the patients achieved biventricular repair with adequate unifocalization.

Comment from Dr. Osami Honjo (Toronto), section editor of Congenital Heart Surgery Journal Watch: Asiji and colleagues from Stanford group report on one of the most difficult subgroups in the patients with pulmonary atresia, ventricular septal defect, and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (PA/VSD/MAPCAs). This group is by far the most experienced group in the world to treat this lesion and this study specifically looked at the patients who had completely occluded MAPCAs. Seventeen (18%) out of 92 patients who underwent a unifocalization procedure during the study period had occluded pulmonary artery branches. Postoperative follow-up angiograms showed 82% of the previously-occluded MAPCAs were patent. Overall 70% of the patients successfully underwent biventricular repair with reasonable right ventricular pressure. This is a remarkable work and outcome given how challenging the patient group is.

  1. This is an excellent overview of the evolution and current status of Fontan conversion.
  2. The review emphasize the importance of arrhythmia surgery as well as pacemaker therapy in combination with Fontan conversion.

Comment from Dr. Osami Honjo (Toronto), section editor of Congenital Heart Surgery Journal Watch: This excellent review article is written by the pioneers of the field of Fontan conversion. The article encompasses histological aspects and the evolution of Fontan conversion and concomitant arrhythmia surgery. They summarized the lessons learned over last 20 years of their experience. In the review, they touched on their recent study of 140 Fontan conversions. Freedom from death or transplant at 10 years is 84% and freedom from recurrent atrial tachycardia at 10 year was 77%.

  1. Survival after sutureless repair for primary pulmonary vein stenosis can be predicted by pre-repair pulmonary vein cross-sectional areas and the number of pulmonary veins involved.
  2. Smaller upstream pulmonary vein cross-sectional area and the number of involved pulmonary veins are associated with early death, and smaller downstream pulmonary vein cross-sectional area is related to late death.

Comment from Dr. Osami Honjo (Toronto), section editor of Congenital Heart Surgery Journal Watch: Primary pulmonary vein stenosis is often progressive and refractory to surgical intervention. Lo Rito and colleagues from The Hospital for Sick Children reported anatomic risk factors for poor outcome after sutureless repair for primary pulmonary vein stenosis. The study analyzed 31 out of 145 patients who underwent pulmonary vein repair and had pre-repair cross-sectional imaging such as CT or MRI. The authors measured cross-sectional area of the pulmonary veins at two different points, upstream vein—before bifurcation and usually distal to the pulmonary vein stenosis, and downstream vein—at the entrance to the left atrium. The authors found that smaller upstream total cross-sectional area indexed for body surface area and greater number of stenotic pulmonary veins were associated with increased early (< 1 year) risk of death. They also found that smaller downstream total cross-sectional area indexed for body surface area tended to be associated with a late risk of death. This emphasizes the importance of early diagnosis and surgery for this lesion before stenosis becomes severe and upstream and downstream veins get small.

  1. Successful core repair for Ebstein’s anomaly not only decreases RV volume but also improves RV global synchronization.
  2. A new index, TAMSI, is a useful index to assess RV global synchronization at the annular level.

Comment from Dr. Osami Honjo (Toronto), section editor of Congenital Heart Surgery Journal Watch: Li and colleagues from China and Germany reported an interesting study regarding right ventricular (RV) synchronization and geometry following cone repair for Ebstein’s anomaly. Using echocardiography and MRI, they developed an index called tricuspid annular movement synchronicity index (TAMSI), which is essentially a parameter of RV global synchronization at the annular plane. They examined this index in 18 patients with Ebstein’s anomaly before and after cone repair, and data was compared to 27 healthy control subjects. Results showed reduced RV volume and unchanged RV ejection fraction after the cone repair. TAMSI decreased significantly after cone repair, and became comparable to normal subjects, which indicated improved RV global synchronization.
