  • Variation in periprocedural management in the congenital cardiac catheterization laboratory: a multinational PICES survey Background The complex nature of congenital heart disease (CHD) has delayed the establishment of management standards for periprocedural cardiac catheterization practices. We sought to describe periprocedural practice variation among providers performing cardiac catheterization in children and adults with CHD.   Methods A web-based survey (surveymoney.com) was distributed to pediatric and congenital interventional cardiologists. Respondents were queried on their training, practice setting, years in practice, and case volume. Clinical questions focused on periprocedural strategies (antibiotic usage, post-procedure chest radiograph, echocardiogram, electrocardiogram, time of discharge, and first follow up visit) in six interventional scenarios: device closure of patent ductus arteriosus and atrial septal defect, pulmonary balloon valvuloplasty, balloon angioplasty for unilateral pulmonary artery stenosis, stent placement for coarctation of the aorta, and transcatheter pulmonary valve implantation.   Results Sixty-one pediatric and congenital interventional cardiologists responded to the survey (80% in the United States). Twenty (33%) worked in a public medical institution; and roughly half (56%) worked in a freestanding children’s hospital. Twenty-one percent had been in practice for <5 years and 39% for >15 years; two-thirds completed a 4th year in interventional cardiology. Median number of total cases performed was 200/year (IQR 145-255); median number of interventional cases was 110/year (IQR 70-150). Responses surrounding prophylactic antibiotic therapy for device implantation and utilization of post-procedure imaging suggested significant variation in operator management. Respondents identified education gained in training, rather than manufacturer guidelines or device trial protocol, as the most important factor in dictating periprocedural practice.   Conclusion In this survey of pediatric and congenital interventional cardiologists, we identified considerable variation in periprocedural management. Future quality improvement efforts are necessary to reduce practice variability and identify “best practices” in periprocedural management of patients with CHD undergoing cardiac catheterization.

  • Variation in anticoagulation practices in the congenital cardiac catheterization laboratory: results of a multinational PICES survey Background The complex nature of congenital heart disease (CHD), has hindered the establishment of management standards for peri-catheterization anticoagulation. We sought to describe anticoagulation practice variability among providers performing cardiac catheterization in children and adults with CHD.   Methods A web-based survey (surveymoney.com) was distributed to pediatric and congenital interventional cardiologists. Respondents were queried on their training, practice setting, years in practice, and case volume. Clinical questions focused on general anticoagulation strategies and on five common clinical scenarios: two diagnostic (biventricular circulation, single ventricle physiology) and three interventional (atrial septal defect closure, stent placement in pulmonary artery in Fontan circulation, stent placement for coarctation of aorta).   Results Seventy-two pediatric and congenital interventional cardiologists responded to the survey (79% in the United States). Twenty-six (36%) worked in a public medical institution; 57% worked in a free-standing children’s hospital. Twenty-six percent had been in practice for <5 years and 32% for >15 years; 75% completed additional training in interventional pediatric cardiology. The median number of cases performed was 200/year (IQR=110); median number of interventional cases was 110/year (IQR=100). Responses to general queries and specific clinical scenarios suggested significant variation in anticoagulation practices, including monitoring of anticoagulation during catheterization, protamine use, and outpatient anticoagulation after catheterization. Practices not only varied between providers but also between different clinical scenarios. Practice patterns did not correlate with provider experience or case volume.   Conclusion In this survey of pediatric and congenital interventional cardiologists, we identified substantial practice variation in peri-procedural anticoagulation management. Future quality improvement efforts are necessary to reduce practice variability and identify “best practices” in anticoagulation management of patients with CHD undergoing cardiac catheterization.

  • Cardiac allograft vasculopathy in young adults who underwent heart transplant in childhood, a serial intravascular ultrasound study Background: Care for pediatric heart transplant recipients can be difficult as they transition to adult providers.  We evaluated pediatric heart transplant recipients for CAV with serial IVUS exams as they entered adulthood.Methods: We retrospectively reviewed young adult patients who underwent pediatric heart transplant at our institution and have been followed by our pediatric and adult programs.  During childhood, serial IVUS was routinely performed as part of the annual evaluation.  A repeat IVUS was performed as adults with each patient having an IVUS at age 12/13 (IVUS 1), age 17/18 (IVUS 2) and adult (IVUS 3).  IVUS measurements included maximal intimal thickness (MIT) and intimal index (II) and was graded using Stanford classification (SC).  Each patient’s IVUS was compared to their other studies to evaluate for progression.  The patients were further divided into 2 groups: those transplanted as neonates (less than 1 month of age) and older patients (greater than 1 month of age).  MIT, II and the presence of severe intimal thickening (SC 4) were compared between the two groups.  Results are given as mean +/- SD.  Statistics used:  Student’s t-test and chi-square analysis.  A P-value of 0.05 was considered significant.Results: To date, 46 pts have been evaluated.  Mean age at last IVUS was 21.6 years with a mean transplant age of 18 years.  MIT increased significantly from IVUS 1 to IVUS 2 (0.16 ± 0.07 mm vs. 0.28 ±0.17 mm, p< 0.001), and to IVUS 3 (0.16 ± 0.07 mm vs. 0.45 ± 0.34 mm, p < 0.001).  II did not significantly increase from IVUS 1 to IVUS 2 but did increase significantly from IVUS 2 to IVUS 3 (0.12 ± 0.07 vs. 0.17 ± 0.09, p < 0.001).  When the neonatal group was compared to the older group, there no difference in MIT, II or SC 4 at the IVUS 1 and IVUS 2 stages.  There was significantly higher MIT (0.34 ± 20 vs. 0.59 ± 0.42, P = 0.025), II (:, II: 0.14 ± 0.05 vs. 0.21 ± 0.11 P = 0.018) and number patients with SC 4 (2/26 vs. 8/20 P= 0.013) in the older group at the IVUS 3 study.  Conclusions: CAV continues to progress in pediatric heart transplant patients into adult life. Neonatal heart transplant recipients appear to develop less CAV compared to older patients, although the mechanism remains unclear. Further evaluation of this population is important as they age.
