    We have reviewed the clinical presentations, courses, and outcomes of 90 patients seen at Texas Children's Hospital from 1983 through 2008 who had an isolated cleft of the mitral valve without some form of endocardial cushion defect. Additional congenital cardiac defects were present in 61 of...

    Ellis-van Creveld (EVC) syndrome is a rare genetic abnormality that has been linked to a mutation in the EVC or EVC2 genes. Common atrium (CA) is an uncommon cardiac malformation, and yet it is commonly found in patients with EVC. We performed a retrospective review of the cases submitted to the...

    A 9-year-old boy with an endocardial cushion defect who had skull erosion as well as widening of the diploe is described. This was accompanied by thickening of the tables, "hair-on-end" striations in the skull, and cortical thinning and medullary cavity expansion in the femora. The skull erosion...

    This article illustrates a case of endomyocardial fibrosis mimicking a dilated cardiomyopathy in a child. A 15 year old girl with a history of asthma had, at the age of 9 years, a diagnosis of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. On admission the patient was asymptomatic, with no medical...

    Background: Contrast echocardiography improves endocardial border detection of the left ventricle. Whether this is also true for the right ventricle (RV) is unknown. The aim of this study is to assess whether the use of contrast (Sonovueâ„¢) echocardiography has additional value in RV...

    Cor triatriatum is a rare congenital heart defect in which a fibromuscular membrane forms an anomalous septum within the left atrium, dividing it into a posterosuperior higher pressure chamber and an anteroinferior anatomically true left atrium. Typically, in cor triatriatum, all four pulmonary...
