    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atrial septal defect; preterm infants; adverse event; heart surgery; incidence; risk factors; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Background: Secundum atrial septal defect (ASD II), situated within the fossa ovalis, is the third most common congenital heart defect and even more common among preterm children. Spontaneous closure usually occurs during the first year of life. Most children with an ASD II remain asymptomatic during early childhood. READ MORE

  4. 4. Diagnosis of interatrial shunts and the influence of patent foramen ovale on oxygen desaturation in obstructive sleep apnea

    Author : Magnus C Johansson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Patent foramen ovale; atrial septal defect; obstructive sleep apnea; contrast transesophageal echocardiography; percutaneous closure;

    Abstract : Patent foramen ovale (PFO) is found in 27% of the population and although mostly asymptomatic, PFO has been associated with e.g. cryptogenic stroke and, rarely, also with oxygen desaturation. PFO and atrial septal defects may nowadays be closed percutaneously without open heart surgery. READ MORE

  5. 5. Follow-up of adults with congenitally malformed hearts with focus on individualised and computer-based education and psychosocial support : A descriptive and interventional study

    Author : Helén Rönning; Eva Swahn; Anna Strömberg; Niels Erik Nielsen; Peter Eriksson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Congenital heart disease; education; information; instrument development; multidisciplinary team; nursing; phenomenography; psychometrics; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Background and aims: Many adults with congenitally malformed hearts are at risk for complications such as decreased function and capacity of the heart due to the heart defect and previously surgery. This advocates self-management behaviours related to medical treatments, physical activity, preventions of endocarditis, some restrictions regarding suitable employment and spare time activities, birth control and pregnancy, but also lifestyle concerns such as refraining from smoking and healthy eating.
