Validation of Novel Scoring Method for Predicting Outcomes after Pediatric Cardiac Surgery This study group from Wayne State University previously validated a novel vasoactive-ventilation-renal (VVR) score as a robust predictor of outcome in acyanotic
infants after CHD surgery.
The relative percentage of acyanotic
(n=136) and cyanotic cardiac disorders (n=30) was 81.
They then discuss septal defects, acyanotic
malformations and diseases of the aorta, cyanotic congenital heart disease, univentricular heart, congenital anomalies of the coronary arteries, and other lesions, including Marfan syndrome and primary pulmonary hypertension.
A diagnosis of acyanotic
congenital heart disease was made.
On clinical examination, the child was acyanotic
and had the typical facies of Williams-Beuren syndrome.
The appearance of cyanosis in a patient who initially was acyanotic
and had a left-to-right shunt suggests the development of a markedly increased pulmonary vascular resistance leading to significant right-to-left shunting.

Research on the cognitive development of children with cardiopathy has distinguished between cyanotic and acyanotic
Malnutrition and growth failure in cyanotic and acyanotic
congenital heart disease with and without pulmonary hypertension.
Researchers from The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, in a study in the August issue of Pediatrics, reported on neuropsychological effects after surgery for acyanotic
He described the clinical and auscultatory findings of 6 acyanotic
patients and autopsy finding of a child with ventricular septal defect (1).
This study examined the relationship between congenital heart disease and oxidative stress in children with cyanotic and acyanotic
congenital heart disease.
