  1. Catheter Ablation in Neonate with Heart Failure Due to Incessant Atrioventricular Reentrant Tachycardia

    INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF CARDIOVASCULAR SCIENCES, v.34, n.4, p.490-493, 2021

    Abstract The atrioventricular (AV) reentrant tachycardia (AVRT) is the most common cause of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) in the young pediatric population. Some newborns might present with congestive heart failure and require interventional treatment. Catheter ablation in small infants (<6 ...

  2. Prevalence of Frailty in Patients Undergoing Cardiac Valve Surgery: Comparison of Frailty Tools

    INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF CARDIOVASCULAR SCIENCES, v.34, n.5 suppl 1, p.78-86, 2021

    Abstract Background There is no consensus among tools for assessing frailty. Objective To evaluate the prevalence of frailty according to different tools in patients referred for elective valve cardiac surgery. Methods This is a cross-sectional study. All patients were ≥ 18 years of age, clinical...

  3. Cardiac Motion Estimation using Pyramid, Warping, and Cost Volume Neural Network

    MEDICAL IMAGING 2021: BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS IN MOLECULAR, STRUCTURAL, AND FUNCTIONAL IMAGING, v.11600, article ID 116000X, 7p, 2021

    Cardiac motion quantification in magnetic resonance (MR) images provides vital information to diagnose and evaluate cardiovascular diseases. Motion quantification can be obtained from routinely acquired MR images. However, the methods available for motion estimation present many sources of incons...

  4. Relationship Between Biomarkers and Different Types of Myocardial Fibrosis in Severe Aortic Valvular Heart Disease

    CIRCULATION, v.142, suppl.3, 2020

  5. Automated radiographic bone suppression with deep convolutional neural networks

    MEDICAL IMAGING 2021: BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS IN MOLECULAR, STRUCTURAL, AND FUNCTIONAL IMAGING, v.11600, article ID 116001D, 7p, 2021

    Dual-energy subtraction (DES) is a technique that separates soft tissue from bones in a chest radiograph (CR). As DES requires specialized equipment, we propose an automatic method based on convolutional neural networks (CNNs) to generate virtual soft tissue images. A dataset comprising 35 pairs ...

  6. Post-Operative Prognostic Prediction of Different Myocardial Fibrosis Measures in Severe Aortic Valvular Heart Disease

    CIRCULATION, v.142, suppl.3, 2020

  7. A general fully automated deep-learning method to detect cardiomegaly in chest x-rays

    MEDICAL IMAGING 2021: COMPUTER-AIDED DIAGNOSIS, v.11597, article ID 115972B, 6p, 2021

    Cardiomegaly is a medical condition that leads to an increase in cardiac size. It can be manually assessed using the cardiothoracic ratio from chest x-rays (CXRs). However, as that task can be challenging in such limited examinations, we propose the fully automated cardiomegaly detection in CXR. ...

  8. Brugada ECG Pattern - A Blip on the Radar for a Pontentially Life-Threatening Condition

    ARQUIVOS BRASILEIROS DE CARDIOLOGIA, v.117, n.2, p.350-351, 2021

  9. Development of an international standard set of patient-centred outcome measures for overall paediatric health: a consensus process

    ARCHIVES OF DISEASE IN CHILDHOOD, v.106, n.9, p.868-876, 2021

    Objective To develop an Overall Pediatric Health Standard Set (OPH-SS) of outcome measures that captures what matters to young people and their families and recognising the biopsychosocial aspects of health for all children and adolescents regardless of health condition. Design A modified Delphi ...

  10. Conditioning of hiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes using surface topography obtained with high throughput technology

    BIOMEDICAL MATERIALS, v.16, n.6, article ID 65007, 15p, 2021

    Surface functionalization of polymers aims to introduce novel properties that favor bioactive responses. We have investigated the possibility of surface functionalization of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) sheets by the combination of laser ablation with hot embossing and the application of such...
