Flecainide versus digoxin for fetal supraventricular tachycardia: Comparison of two drug treatment protocols.

Sridharan S, Sullivan I, Tomek V, Wolfenden J, Škovránek J, Yates R, Janoušek J, Dominguez TE, Marek J.

Heart Rhythm. 2016 Sep;13(9):1913-9. doi: 10.1016/j.hrthm.2016.03.023.

Take Home Points:

  1. This retrospective study compares the effectiveness of flecainide vs. digoxin in the treatment of fetal supraventricular tachycardia (SVT).
  2. Flecainide is superior in the treatment of fetal SVT compared to digoxin.
  3. The overall conversion rate for Flecainide was 97.1% compared to 51.7% overall conversion rate for digoxin.

Abarbanell picture smallCommentary from Dr. Ginnie Abarbanell (Atlanta), section editor of Fetal Cardiology Journal Watch: This retrospective study compares the effectiveness of 2 different treatment protocols at 2 centers (London and Prague) for fetal supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). Center 1 employed a treatment protocol with flecainide as the first line agent.  Center 2 used digoxin as the first line agent.  There were 34 fetuses treated with flecainide with an overall conversion rate of 97.1 % and 50 fetuses treated with digoxin with and overall conversion rate of 51.7%.  In non-hydropic fetuses the conversion rate with flecainide was 96% and 79% in the digoxin group.  Digoxin performed poorly in hydropic fetuses with a conversion rate of 38% compared to 86% conversion rate with flecainide.  Mortality was 43% in the hydropic fetuses with all poor outcomes occurring in the group primarily treated with digoxin.  These results support that flecainide is more effective than digoxin in the treatment of fetal SVT.

Take Home Points:

  1. This statement from the AHA addresses the basic knowledge that all cardiovascular practitioners will routinely encounter in their practices.
  2. Several tables are included which may serve as helpful reference tools.

Commentary from Dr. Ginnie Abarbanell (Atlanta), section editor of Fetal Cardiology Journal Watch: This statement from the AHA focuses on core competencies in genetics relevant to cardiovascular healthcare specialists.  The statement is divided into the following segments:  (1) Role of Trained Genetics Professionals, (2) What the Cardiovascular Practitioner Needs to Know and (3) How to acquire and maintain Genetics Competencies.  The middle segment on “what the practitioner needs to know” helpfully addresses many of the questions practitioners routinely encounter in their practice such as:

  • When Do I Suspect a Genetic Condition?
  • When Do I Refer for Genetic Testing?
  • Who Should Be Tested?
  • Types of Gene Testing?
  • Managing Genetic Test Results
  • Impact of Genetic Test Results
  • When Do I Use Pharmacogenetic Testing?
  • What Do I Need to Know About Emerging Genetic and Genomic Technologies?

This statement includes several useful tables that could be used by practitioners as a quick reference guide.  A few tables are included here.  It is recommended that all cardiovascular practitioners review this statement to better apply genetic testing to their practices.

  1. This study illustrates the importance in prenatal diagnosis with planned delivery and immediate transcatheter intervention in infants with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and restrictive atrial communication.
  2. Infants born with a prenatal diagnosis of hypoplastic left heart syndrome with a restrictive/intact interatrial communication have an overall survival to stage 2 palliation or heart transplantation of 67% following immediate transcatheter intervention. This compared to a survival of 85% in infants with HLHS and a non-restrictive atrial communication.
  3. There were no survivors in this study among infants diagnosed postnatally with HLHS with a restrictive/intact atrial communication. This is most likely secondary to the delayed intervention in relieving the restrictive atrial communication.
  4. This study also found that a fetal pulmonary reverse/forward velocity time integral (VTI) ratio of ≥18% or a forward/reverse VTI ratio of 5.5 was predictive of need for emergent left atrial decompression.

Commentary from Dr. Ginnie Abarbanell picture small(Atlanta), section editor of Pediatric Cardiology Journal Watch: This retrospective study reviewed the outcomes of infants with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) with intact/restrictive interatrial communication in 19 infants from two institutions (Tennessee and Illinois).  During the 5-year time period studied there were 170 infants born with HLHS at these institutions.   These infants were divided into 3 groups based on the whether the interatrial communication was restrictive.  Group 1 consisted of 150 infants with HLHS and nonrestrictive interatrial communication.  Group 2 consisted of 12 infants born with intact/restrictive atrial septum that were prenatally diagnosed and underwent immediate transcatheter intervention, which in most cases consisted of radiofrequency perforation and intra-atrial stent placement.  Group 3 consisted of 7 infants born with HLHS and intact/restrictive atrial septum that were diagnosed postnatally.  All the infants in Group 3 were born at outside hospitals and required transport to a tertiary medical center. 4/7 infants in Group 3 underwent catheter intervention and 3 underwent surgical septectomy while on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.  The medial time to intervention in Group 3 was 122 hours. The overall survival to stage 2 palliation or heart transplantation was 85% in Group 1 and 67% in Group 2.  All the infants in Group 3 died prior to stage 2 palliation or heart transplantation.  See figure 4.  Fetal pulmonary vein Doppler findings have been previously published as an indicator of the severity of interatrial communication restriction. This study found that a fetal pulmonary reverse/forward velocity time integral (VTI) ratio of ≥18% or a forward/reverse VTI ratio of ≤ 5.5 was predictive of need for emergent left atrial decompression.  (Other studies have reported the fetal pulmonary VTI ratio as a forward/reverse ratio1)  The median fetal pulmonary vein VTI reverse to forward ratio in Group 2 was 49% (Forward/reverse ratio =2) which compared to 13% (forward/reverse ratio =7) in Group 1.  See figure 1.

  1. Neo-aortic root dilation after Ross procedure is a known complication.
  2. This cohort study from Zurich, Switzerland found that nearly a third of patients developed neo-aortic root dilation and a half developed native ascending aorta dilation over time.
  3. The following risk factors were associated with progressive dilation: pre-operative aortic regurgitation, concomitant reduction plasty of the ascending aorta at time of Ross and longer duration of follow up.

Commentary from Dr. Ginnie Abarbanell (Atlanta), section editor of Pediatric Cardiology Journal Watch: This study from Zurich, Switzerland evaluated the incidence of neo-aortic root dilation following Ross procedure.  The Ross procedure involves replacing the aortic valve with the autologous pulmonary valve and replacement of the pulmonary valve with a bioprosthesis.  100 patients who underwent Ross procedure were included in this study.  A free-standing root replacement technique with buttressing of the neo-aortic root with remnants of the native aortic root was used in the majority of patients.  The median age at surgery was 16 years.  53% of the patients were 2-18 years old and 42% were over 18 years of age.  Only 5% were under 2 years of age.  28% of the patients developed neo-aortic root dilation (z-score ≥ 4) and 50% developed native ascending aorta dilation (z-score ≥ 4).  Neo-aortic root and native ascending aorta dilation was progressive over time. Risk factors on univariate analysis associated with progressive dilation included:  preoperative aortic regurgitation (p = 0.04), concomitant reduction plasty of the ascending aorta at time of Ross (p = 0.009) and a longer duration of follow-up (p = 0.005). Younger age at surgery was associated with dilatation of the ascending aorta (p = 0.03).  6 patients (8%) required reoperation of the neo-aortic root secondary to severe dilation.

  1. Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is predicted to be the most common cardiovascular disease worldwide in individuals less than 25 years of age.
  2. Nearly 90% of children born with congenital heart disease (CHD) will not have access to basic care.
  3. Cardiac disease (CHD and RHD) facing children worldwide is an endemic problem.

Commentary from Dr. Ginnie Abarbanell (Atlanta), section editor of Pediatric Cardiology Journal Watch: This is nicely written review detailing the issues of cardiac care globally.  The author of this review included several statistics regarding congenital heart defects (CHD), acute rheumatic fever (ARF) and rheumatic heart disease (RHD) that are included below.  References are available within the review article.

  • “It has been estimated that more than 90% of the world’s children with CHD do not have access to even the most basic care”
  • “Of the 130 million babies born annually, approximately 7.9 million are born with a serious birth defect of genetic or partly genetic origin. CHD is the most common serious birth defect.”
  • “Of approximately 50 million babies born in Africa each year, as many as 500,000 will have significant CHD and about half of these die within a few years of birth.”
  • “It was estimated that there are at least 15.6 million prevalent cases of RHD worldwide with 282,000 new cases and over 233,000 deaths per year. As a result, it is likely that in the late 1990s RHD was the most common cardiovascular disease worldwide in those less than 25 years old.”

The author reviews advances and initiatives currently taking place regarding treatment of children with cardiac disease.  However, as the statistics above reflect cardiac disease facing children worldwide is an endemic problem.

  1. The best timing for performing stage 2 palliation (Hemi-Fontan/Glenn) in single ventricle patients is unknown.
  2. This study queried the National Pediatric Cardiology Quality Improvement Collaborative (NPC-QIC) registry to evaluate whether performing stage 2 palliation earlier than 153 days (5 months) was advantageous.
  3. This study found there was a significantly increased interstage mortality rate when stage 2 palliation is delayed beyond 5 months. However, this difference in interstage mortality was small.
  4. Patients undergoing later stage 2 palliation were on the ventilator postoperatively longer but otherwise the was no difference in post-operative complications, hospital length of stay or mortality between the centers that performed stage 2 palliation earlier or later than 5 months.

Commentary from Dr. Ginnie Abarbanell (Atlanta), section editor of Pediatric Cardiology Journal Watch: This study from the National Pediatric Cardiology Quality Improvement Collaborative (NPC-QIC) evaluated whether the timing of stage 2 palliation (Hemi-Fontan/Glenn) for single ventricle lesions had an effect on mortality and morbidity.  The NPC-QIC registry was queried from 2008-2013 and 789 patients from 31 United States pediatric cardiology centers were included in the analysis.  The centers were divided into two groups based on the median age at which each center performed stage 2 palliation (S2P).  Group 1 (early group) performed S2P at or before a median age of 153 days (5 months) and group 2 (late group) performed S2P after a median age of 153 days.  There was intra- and inter-center variability in the timing of S2P.  Across all groups the interstage mortality was 7.2%.  The mortality in the early performing center group was 5.7% (28 deaths) and 9.9% (29 deaths) in the late performing centers (p = 0.03).  There were 5.8 deaths per 10,000 interstage days in the early group and 8.2 deaths per 10,000 interstage days in the late group but this was not statistically significant (p=0.26).  History of Blalock-Taussig shunt and later performing center for S2P were found to be associated with higher interstage mortality using multivariable analysis.  The patients undergoing S2P at the later performing centers had prolonged ventilation compared to the early performing centers (p=0.04).  There was no difference in the frequency of postoperative complications, hospital length of stay or mortality between the early and later performing centers following S2P.  In the discussion, the authors calculated the following “Based on the average event rate of 7 deaths per 10,000 interstage days for the entire cohort, 1 life could be saved for every 47 patients who had S2P performed 30 days earlier.”  The authors conclude “Although optimal timing of S2P remains unclear, those centers performing earlier S2P had lower interstage mortality and did not experience worse S2P mortality or morbidity. Stage 2 palliation prior to 5 months of age is a safe and effective strategy for most patients with HLHS or related variants that have undergone Norwood palliation.”
