    Pediheart Podcast Replay #21: CICU Management Of The Complex Newborn Following Surgery

    Pediheart Podcast Replay #21: CICU Management Of The Complex Newborn Following Surgery

    This week we replay one of the most listened to episodes of the early part of this podcast history - episode 21 with Dr. Anthony Rossi. Professor Rossi is the Director of Pediatric Cardiology at Nicklaus Children's Hospital in Miami, Florida and is one of the leaders and pioneers in the field of pediatric cardiac critical care. We sit down with Dr. Rossi to review his approach to the assessment and management of the single ventricle patient following stage I palliation. The clinical 'pearls' come fast and furiously from Dr. Rossi - this is one to have pen and paper available to take notes! An inspiring figure to usher out the month of May!

    Pediheart Podcast # 119: Intraoperative Methadone Reduces Opiod Usage During And After Congenital Heart Surgery

    Pediheart Podcast # 119: Intraoperative Methadone Reduces Opiod Usage During And After Congenital Heart Surgery

    This week we enter the world of cardiovascular anesthesiology to review a recent work from Duke University on the results of the use of IV methadone during cardiac surgery in children. Does this agent result in reductions in postoperative opioid usage while affording similar analgesia? What are the advantages of this agent in this setting? How much should the cardiologist worry about the impact of methadone on the QT interval? We speak with the first author of this work, Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at UNC, Dr. Annika Barnett. doi: 10.1111/pan.13903

    Pediheart Podcast #118: Effect Of Maternal Hypertension On RV and LV Size And Dimensions Of The Offspring

    Pediheart Podcast #118: Effect Of Maternal Hypertension On RV and LV Size And Dimensions Of The Offspring

    This week we enter into the worlds of fetal cardiology and preventative cardiology to review a recent work from Professor Paul Leeson of Oxford University on the topic of pregnancy induced hypertension and the impact this plays on the cardiovascular health of the offspring. How does this form of HTN affect the structure of the RV and LV in the offspring and why might this explain the increased rates of adult HTN in the offspring of women who were hypertensive during pregnancy? Dr. Leeson provides many interesting insights and context this week. doi: 10.1161/JAHA.119.014586

    Pediheart Podcast #117: Novel Radial Sheaths With Large ID And Small OD For Pediatric Femoral Catheterization

    Pediheart Podcast #117: Novel Radial Sheaths With Large ID And Small OD For Pediatric Femoral Catheterization

    This week we review a recent work from the team at Mercy Children's on the variability of sheath outer diameter (OD) amongst various sheaths. Can novel 4Fr adult radial sheaths have similar OD to more standard 3.3Fr pediatric sheaths? What are the trade-offs in using a radial sheath for this indication in a newborn? Senior author Dr. Abhay Divekar of Rocky Mountain Pediatric Cardiology shares his insights this week. doi: 10.1002/ccd.28825

    Pediheart Podcast #116: Anatomical Aspects of Ebstein's Anomaly And Their Relation To Arrhythmia

    Pediheart Podcast #116: Anatomical Aspects of Ebstein's Anomaly And Their Relation To Arrhythmia

    On this episode we speak with Professor Edward Walsh of Harvard University about a recent work he co-authored on Ebstein's anomaly. Can review of pathological specimens offer some insights into why ablations in this patient group are so challenging? Is there an optimal age or size to perform an ablation in this patient group? Why are these ablations so difficult? Dr. Walsh, Director of the Arrhythmia Service at Boston Children's Hospital, shares his deep insights this week. doi: 10.1016/j.hrthm.2020.01.013

    Pediheart Podcast #115: Role Of The Stress Echo In Assessing The Pediatric HCM Patient

    Pediheart Podcast #115: Role Of The Stress Echo In Assessing The Pediatric HCM Patient

    This week we delve into the world of cardiomyopathy and also stress echo to review a recent work from the team at Boston Children's on stress echo and its role in the assessment of the pediatric HCM patient. We speak with Assistant Professor of Pediatrics Ming Hui Chen of Harvard University about a recent work she co-authored on this modality in children with HCM. Are changes in the LVOT gradient with exercise associated with differences in medium term outcome? Dr. Chen provides the answers this week. doi: 10.1016/j.echo.2020.01.020

Congenital Cards Trainee ,

Excellent insight, broad range.

Dr. Pass does a phenomenal job covering a wide range of topics with regards to pediatric and adult congenital cardiology across all associated specialties (including surgical, interventional, intensivist, etc). His article choices and the insights supplied both by him and by an impressive array of guests in the field of congenital cardiology are invaluable to anyone interested in these topics who wants some direction in where to look for relevant literature.
