Elective primary repair of acyanotic
tetralogy of Fallot in early infancy: overall outcome and impact on the pulmonary valve.
Objective: To compare the outcome of cyanotic and Acyanotic
patients undergone congenital cardiac surgery.

2D Echocardiography revealed congenital acyanotic
She considers such topics as the position of the patient and transducer, M-mode and Doppler examination, the echocardiographic evaluation of cardiac chambers, acyanotic
congenital heart disease, acquired valvular disease, diseases of the myocardium, the pediatric echocardiogram report and its pitfalls, fetal and neonatal echocardiography, and echocardiography in the intensive care unit.
Infants less than 12 months old with hemodynamically significant congenital heart disease should still receive palivizumab, particularly if they have moderate to severe pulmonary hypertension or if they have acyanotic
heart disease and either take medication to control congestive heart failure or else will need heart surgery.
The topic of his presentation was myths of Acyanotic
heart disease wherein he discussed at length the physiology and management of the patients suffering from congenital heart diseases.
Interestingly, children with cyanotic cardiac disease showed a statistically higher caries index, in comparison to those with acyanotic
Patent ductus arteriosus is the next most common acyanotic
The relative percentage of acyanotic
(n=136) and cyanotic cardiac disorders (n=30) was 81.
Children with acyanotic
CHD may also have a bleeding disorder, which is usually mild and characterized by a prolonged 15 bleeding time and normal platelet count .
The cardiac ultrasound scan confirmed an acyanotic
cardiac lesion with a complete atrioventricular canal defect, a common atrium, an interrupted inferior vena cava, a small patent ductus arteriosus and a moderate ventricular septal defect.
