  1. 1. Children with Congenital Heart Defects. Intellectual Functioning and Family Impact

    Author : Carmen Ryberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Psychology; intellectual functioning; self-reports; proxy reports; congenital heart defects; neurodevelopment; mothers and fathers of children with congenital heart defects.;

    Abstract : The purpose of the present doctoral thesis was to investigate intellectual functioning and the influence of the children with congenital heart defects in their families. We analyzed how the severity of the heart defect, the child's age, and the socio-economic status of the child's family were related to the intellectual functioning of the children and to the impact on the family.

  2. 2. MR Imaging of Congenital Heart Disease at 0.3 T

    Author : Nils Malmgren; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Magnetic Resonans Imaging; Congenital Heart Defects; Imaging parameters; Surface coils; Complex Congenital Heart Defects; Postoperative; Pulmonary vessels.;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to systematically evaluate the potential of static MR Imaging in congenital heart disease. As low field equlpment was first avaliable, and contlnues to be used, the experienee with this type of imager is reported. Accurate parameter setting is of the greatest importance for efficient cardiac scanning. READ MORE

  3. 3. Functional and morphological MR studies in congenital cardiovascular malformations

    Author : Catarina Holmqvist; Lund Diagnostisk radiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; medicinsk instrumentering; tomografi; radiologi; Klinisk fysiologi; Contrast-enhanced MR angiography.; Coarctation; Intra-cardiac shunts; Conduits; Tetralogy of Fallot; Function; Flow; MR velocity mapping; Infants; Children; Magnetic Resonance Imaging; Angiocardiography; Heart; Congenital heart defects; medical instrumentation; tomography; radiology; Clinical physics;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to evaluate new MR techniques permitting qualitative and quantitative analysis of cardiac function and measurement of velocity and flow, and later on contrast-enhanced MR angiography, techniques largely unexplored in children with CHD. Infants with tetralogy of Fallot and pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect were examined pre-operatively. READ MORE

  4. 4. Children living with type 1 diabetes and congenital heart disease in the West Bank, Palestine -Self-perceived health status, sense of coherence, and the daily life experiences of these children and theri parents

    Author : Kawther Elissa; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adolescent; child; diabetes mellitus type1; experiences; health status; heart defects; congenital; parents; sense of coherence;

    Abstract : Chronic diseases such as type 1 diabetes (T1D) and congenital heart disease (CHD) are lifelong conditions, need regular treatment, self management, and health care follow-ups. Growing up with these conditions affects the children’s and their parents’ lives at various levels, because of the increased burden and responsibilities imposed on them. READ MORE

  5. 5. Thrombosis in Children

    Author : Olof Rask; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Child; Estradiol; Heart Defects; Congenital; Hemostasis; Protein C Inhibitor; Risk factors; Thrombophilia; Thromboembolism; Autoantibodies; Adolescent;

    Abstract : Aims: The general objective was to further elucidate thromboembolic disease in children and thereby help improve the care of these patients. More specific aims were as follows: to determine what children are affected by thrombosis; to discern any gender or age differences related to thrombosis; to identify prothrombotic risk factors; to ascertain whether autoantibodies against coagulation proteins constitute a risk factor for childhood thrombosis; to study girls receiving estrogen treatment with regard to induced hemostatic changes and efficacy of the therapy; to investigate long-term effects on the hemostatic system in children subjected to heart surgery.
