The article presents a study on the three-dimensional CT scanning. This paper highlights the importance of the new diagnostic modality used in congenital heart disease. CT scanning technology has been changed with new advances in new generation multislice CT technology to non-invasive assessment of congenital heart disease. The new methodology is presented.

    Cervical aortic arch is a rare congenital anomaly. We present a case of left-sided cervical aortic arch, found in a patient with mitral regurgitation, mitral stenosis, and a regurgitant bicuspid aortic valve. There was atypical obstruction proximally within the arch. The obstructive segment was...

    Background: The measurement error for right ventricular (RV) size and function assessed by cardiac MRI (CMRI) in congenital heart disease has not been fully characterized. As CMRI parameters are being increasingly utilized to make clinical decisions, defining error in the clinical setting is...

    OBJECTIVES With the expanding uptake of mitral valve repair as the primary therapy for mitral valve regurgitation, an increasing cohort of patients are presenting with failures following valve repair. These patients have traditionally been treated by mitral valve replacement. We have adopted an...
