原始语种摘要: Objectives(#br)The aim of this study was to compare the pulmonary artery (PA) growth after arterial duct (AD) stenting versus modified Blalock-Taussig shunt (MBTS) in neonates with congenital heart disease with duct-dependent pulmonary circulation (CHD-DPC).(#br)Background(#br)Arterial duct stenting is increasingly deemed a reliable alternative to surgical shunt in CHD-DPC. A stented duct might better adapt to the PA anatomy than a surgical conduit, thereby promoting a more uniform PA development.(#br)Methods(#br)This study enrolled 27 patients with CHD-DPC submitted to AD stenting (n = 13, Group I) or MBTS (n = 14, Group II) at our institution. The PA growth was angiographically assessed with the Nakata and McGoon indexes as well as the individual PA z -scores. The right-to-left PA...
