An arterial aneurysm of any kind is rare in infancy, and one that occurs in the brachial artery is probably even more rare; when such an aneurysm is asymptomatic and congenital, it must he exceedingly rare. One such unique case is described herein, together with a brief review of the literature.

    The implementation committee of the Quebec Child Telehealth Network was formed in 1997, with a mandate to build a network dedicated to the diagnosis of congenital cardiac disease via telemedicine. We devised criterions for selection to determine which peripheral centres would be linked by...

    The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility of multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) for the evaluation of modified Blalock-Taussig (B-T) shunt in children with congenital heart disease associated with reduced pulmonary blood flow.

    Sports camps for children with cardiac anomalies have existed for many years. However, no formal evaluation of the benefits of attending such camps has been undertaken heretofore. We assessed potential changes in the self-perceived health of children with congenital heart disease who attended a...
