Cyanotic Heart Diseases

  1. 1. Cyanotic Heart Lesions Dr. Kalpana Malla MBBS MD (Pediatrics) Manipal Teaching HospitalDownload more documents and slide shows on The Medical Post [ ]
  2. 2. Cyanotic Heart Lesions• The 5 Ts – Tetralogy of Fallot – Transposition of the Great Arteries – Truncus Arteriosus (Persistent) – Tricuspid Atresia – Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Return (TAPVR)
  3. 3. Cyanotic Heart Lesions• Hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLH)• Pulmonary atresia (PA) / critical PS• Double outlet right ventricle (DORV)• Ebstein anomaly• Single ventricle
  4. 4. R LR L with pulmonary stenosis• TOF• Tricuspid atresia• Ebstein’s anomaly
  5. 5. Evaluation possible congenital heartExam: rate, rhythm, impulse, murmur, pulses (brachial and femoral)• Oxygen saturation - Hyperoxia test• ABG• Chest X- ray• Echocardiogram• Cardiac catheterization
  6. 6. Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF):• Most common (75% )cyanotic CHD in >2yrs• ~ 10% of all CHD
  7. 7. Tetralogy of Fallot• TOF = consists – Ventricular septal defect – Rt ventricular outflow obstruction – infundibular or infundibular + pulmonary valve stenosis – Aorta position is shifted to the right and over-rides the VSD – Hypertrophy of the right ventricle
  8. 8. Essential components: VSD Pulmonary stenosisOther components : overriding of Aorta RVHPentalogy of Fallot: all above + ASD
  9. 9. Hemodynamics:• Large, non-restrictive VSD, perimembranous type, extending upto right ventricular outlet allows equalisation of pressures in two ventricles VSD is silent• Pulmonary stenosis Shunting of blood from R L ventricle mixing of oxygenated & deoxygenated blood in left ventricle circulated to whole body
  10. 10. • Severity depends upon degree of pulmonary stenosis• Pulmonary stenosis causes concentric rt ventricular hypertrophy without cardiac enlargement & ↑rt vent pressure• Flow from Rt vent to pul artery  across pul stenosis  produce ejection systolic murmur• If obstruction small, RL shunt minimal or absent (pink or acyanotic TOF)
  11. 11. • P2  Delayed & reduced in intensity due to rt vent outflow obstruction reduced PA pressure• S2 single and A2 audible• Severity of cyanosis  directly proportional to severity of pul stenosis but intensity of systolic murmur inversely related to severity of pulmonic stenosis
  12. 12. Clinical features:• May become symptomatic any time after birth – usually 2nd half of 1st yr• Anoxic spells (synonyms- hypoxic, hypercyanotic, blue, tet ) – paroxysmal attack of dyspnea• Common symptoms – dyspnea on exertion,exercise intolerance• Cyanosis• H/O squatting during dyspneaic episodes
  13. 13. Anoxic spells• Occur predominantly after waking up or following exertion• Most commonly start around 4 to 6 months of age and are charcterized by 1.Sudden crying 2.Sudden onset or deepening of cyanosis 3.Sudden onset of dyspnea
  14. 14. Anoxic spells4. Alterations of consciousness5. Convulsions6.Decrease in intensity of systolic murmurFrequency varies from once in a few days to numerous attacks every day
  15. 15. • Mild outflow obstruction: cyanosis in later part of 1st year• Severe outflow obstruction: cyanosis immediately after birth (as ductus starts to close)CCF unusual in children with TOF except in: Severe anemia Valvular regurgitation Infective endocarditis Systemic hypertension Coincidental myocardial diseases
  16. 16. Physical examination:• Cyanosis• Clubbing• Polycythemia• Normal sized heart• Mild parastrnal impulse
  17. 17. Auscultation• S1 –normal• S2 – Single, (A2 heard,P2 soft &delayed• Murmur –• Shunt – absent• Flow - Loud short pulmonary ejection systolic murmur grade 3-5/6 at 3rd ICS in left side
  18. 18. Diagnosis:• Blood: polycythemia• CXR:1. Upturned apex (RVH)- Small boot shaped heart2. Oligemic lung fields3. Absence or concavity of pulmonary artery segment gives the shape described as cor- en sabot4. Right aortic arch ~25 -30%
  19. 19. • Diagnosis:• ECG: RAD, RVH with tall peaked p waves• Echo: overriding aorta,RVH,outflow obstruction• Cardiac catheterisation
  20. 20. Complications:• Cerebral thrombosis• Brain abscess• Bleeding diathesis• Infective endocarditis• CCF-in acyanotic or pink TOF
  21. 21. Complications:• CNS - Embolism to CNS - sluggish circulation from polycythemia• Hemiplegia - infarction in CNS during anoxic spell
  22. 22. Management:• Management of Tet spells: - knee-chest position - humidified O2 inhalation - morphine 0.1 mg/kg s/c/ iv
  23. 23. Management of Tet spells: - IV fluids - Correct metabolic acidosis- Na-bicarbonate - Propanolol – 0.1mg/kg/iv during spell (0.5-1 mg/kg PO 6 hrly
  24. 24. Management:• Vasopressors- methoxamine IM or IV drip penylephrine• Correct anemia• Consider surgery
  25. 25. • General measures: - Correction of iron deficiency anemia - Adequate hydration - Antibiotics for infection - Prophylaxis with propranolol
  26. 26. Surgery• Palliative surgery: - Blalock-Taussig shunt – subclavian artery to pulm artery - Pott’s shunt-descending aorta to PA - Waterson operation – ascending aorta to Rt pulm artery-Modified Blalock-Taussig shunt
  27. 27. • Corrective surgery: open heart surgery for – closer of VSD - resecting the infundibular obstruction PSSurgery can be performed at any ageSuccess – 85-90%
  28. 28. Complications of surgery• Complete heart block• RBBB• Residual VSD & Pulm stenosis• Pulm regurgitation
  29. 29. Tricuspid atresia • Cong absence of Tricuspid valve • Rt ven hypoplastic• Absent inflow portion • 2% of CHD
  30. 30. Hemodynamics• No communication between Rt atrium rt ventricle (hypoplastic)• Blood from Rt atrium lt atrium through patent foramen ovale or ASD.mixing of oxygenated + deoxygenated blood to lt ventricle aorta• Lt vent rt vent there is VSD pul artery ( lt .ventricle maintains both systemic & pulmonary circulation saturation of blood is identicle in pulm artery and aorta
  31. 31. Clinical features• Depends on state of pulmonary flow• 90 % are with diminished blood flow• Features :As TOF• Differentiating points :1.Cyanosis from birth2.More sicker than TOF3.Lt ventricular type of apical impulse4.Enlarged liver with presystolic pulsations5.ECG- LAD,LVH
  32. 32. Diagnosis• Blood: polycythemia• CXR:1.Oligemic lung fields2.Left ventricular configuration3.Prominent SVC shadow• ECG: Rt & Lt atrial hypertrophy, LAD,LVH• Echo: large single ventricular cavity
  33. 33. Tricuspid AtresiaRepair not usually performed in neonatal period- over a series of procedures – Systemic to PA shunt – SVC to PA shunt (followed by ligation of first shunt)– Glenn Shunt – IVC to PA shunt– completion Fontan
  34. 34. Ebsteins Anomaly• Rare CCHD• Post and septal leaflet of TV – displaced downwards –• The upper part of the right ventricle is part of the right atrium - atrialized rt ventricle• Rt ventricle is too small and Rt. atrium is too large.• Leaflets – malformed and fused – obstruction of flow to rt ventricle
  35. 35. Ebsteins Anomaly• Often Associated with other heart lesions – ASD – Pulmonary Stenosis – Pulmonary Atresia
  36. 36. Hemodynamics :Abnormal leaflets obstruction to forward flow & regurgitation from Rt ven to Rt atrium atrium dilates Patent FO / ASD allows R L shunt( cyanosis) Lt atrium (enlarged) Lt ventricle (enlarged & hypertrophied)
  37. 37. Clinical picture• Cyanosis• Effort intolerance• Fatigue• Paroxysmal attack of tachycardia• Clubbing• Lt ventricular apical impulse• Systolic thrill may be palpable LSB
  38. 38. Auscultation• S1- normal• S2 – widely split but variable• Rt ventricular 3rd soundor rt atrial 4th sound audible – triple/quadruple sound usually heard• Murmur-midsystolic ejection or pansystolic• Short tricuspid delayed diastolic M
  39. 39. Investigations• CXR cardiomegaly –square shaped Lung – oligemicECG- ‘p’ pulmonale ‘p’mitrale,RBBBWolff Parkinson white type conducton defect maybe seenECHO- displaced tricuspid valve
  40. 40. Treatment• Surgical – obliteration of atrialised portion of rt.ventricle and repairof tricuspid valve
  41. 41. Fallot’s physiology• Presence of large VSD with PS• Useful for bedside identification of group of condition with similar clinical findings• Defects with Fallot’s physiology:1. Complete TGA with VSD & PS2. DORV with PS & large VSD (subaortic)3. Tricuspid atresia with diminished pul flow4.Single ventricle with PS5. corrected TGA with VSD & PS
  42. 42. Transposition of the Great Arteries• Most common cyanotic condition that requires hospitalization in first 2 weeks of life• Aorta arises from RV• Pulmonary artery originates in the left ventricle
  43. 43. • Oxygenated pulmonary venous blood recirculates in lungs and systemic venous blood recirculates in systemic circulation
  44. 44. Transposition of the Great Vessels• A PDA,ASD,VSD, is necessary for these infants to survive until they can have corrective surgery• More common in infants of diabetic mothers
  45. 45. Classification1. Complete variety2. Physiologically corrected type
  46. 46. Complete variety• Rt atrium →Rt ventricle →aorta• Lt atrium →Lt ventricle →pulmonary artery• Systemic & pulmonary circulation separate →survival possible only if there is ASD,VSD,PDAClassificationA) With intact ventricular septum – mixing site is atrial communication PFOB) with VSD with/without pul stenosis
  47. 47. Physiologically corrected type• Rt atrium → morphologically inverted left ventricle →pulmonary artery• Lt atrium → morphologically inverted Rt ventricle →aorta• Route of blood flow is normal
  48. 48. C /F with intact VS• Cyanotic at birth• Interatrial mixing poor (PFO) – rapid breathing ,congestive failure due to hypoxia within 1st wk of life• CCF• S1 –normal• S2- single• Ejection systolic murmur grade 1-2/6• CXR – egg on side appearance,plethoric lung field
  49. 49. With VSD• Good mixing at ventricular level, large pulmonary blood flow – cyanosis milder• CCF at 4-10 wks• Exam –cyanosis,CCF• S1- Normal• S2 – single• Murmur – ejection systolic grade 2-4/6
  50. 50. Diagnosis• CXR- egg on side appearance ,cardiomegaly with narrow base, plethoric lung field• ECG without VSD – RAD,RVH• ECG with VSD – RAD, biventricular hypertrophy• Cardiac catheterization• Angiocardiography
  51. 51. Medical management• Control CCF• Balloon atrial septotomy by cardiac catheterization - Inter-atrial septum opened• Definitive repair – Jatene’s switch operation - removal of aorta and pulmonary artery from their origins and re-attached to the correct ventricles• Less preferred – atrial switch operation –mustard or senning
  52. 52. Corrected TGA• Normal route of blood flow• Commonly associated with other anomalies 98% - symtoms are due associated anomalies:1.VSD with/without PS2.Lt sided Ebstein’s anomaly of tricuspid valve3.Atrioventricular conduction abnormalities
  53. 53. Truncus Arteriosus• Truncus fails to divide completely during fetal life, leaving a connection between the aorta and pulmonary arteries• Mixed oxygenated and de-oxygenated blood exits the heart and enters the systemic circulation
  54. 54. Truncus Arteriosus• Single artery arises from the heart, supplying both aorta and pulmonary artery.• VSD below the truncal valve allows mixing of right and left ventricular blood• Degree of cyanosis is variable• Presents with progressive heart failure
  55. 55. Truncus Arteriosus• Medical Management – Digoxin and Diuretics• Surgical Repair – Usually required by 2-3 months of age – VSD is closed – PA trunk is separated from truncus – Conduit created between RV and PA using a valved graft
  56. 56. TAPVR• The pulmonary veins, instead of being connected to the left atrium , are connected to the right atrium or superior vena cava, and return oxygenated blood to the right side of the heart.
  57. 57. Total Anomalous Venous Return• Uncommon CCHD• Cyanosis• CCF at age 4-10 wks• Murmur : pul ejection systolic + tricuspid flow murmur• Continuous venous hum audible at upper left or rt sternal border or in suprasdternal notch
  58. 58. Diagnosis• CXR- snowman or figure of 8 configuration• ECG – RAD,RVH,• ECHO- demonstrate abnormal course of pul veins
  59. 59. Total Anomalous Venous Return• Control of CCF, pul infections• The only accepted treatment is surgery• Surgical connection is made between pulmonary venous confluence and the LA• Connection to systemic venous circulation is ligated.
  60. 60. Hypoplastic Left Heart• Fatal without early surgical intervention
  61. 61. Treatment- continued• General procedure for cyanotic heart lesions involves a systemic to PA shunt.• Procedure known as the Blalock-Taussig shunt – Uses a small Gore-Tex® shunt to connect either left or right subclavian to left or right branch PA. – Allows partially desaturated blood to enter PA, increasing pulmonary blood flow and oxygenation
  62. 62. CCHD with PA HTN• This group is named – Eisenmenger syndrome – severe PA HTN resulting in R→L shunt at atrial, ventricular or pulmonary arterial level• Eisenmenger complex – severe PA HTN with VSD resulting in R→L shunt
  63. 63. • Eisenmengers syndrome named by Dr. Paul Wood after Dr. Victor Eisenmenger, who first described the condition in 1897.
  64. 64. Hemodynamics• L→R shunt in the heart causes:- - increased flow through PA - High O2 saturation in PA - Hyperreactive pul vasculature → Pul vascular obstructive Ds →PA HTN• PA HTN → causes increased pressures in the right side of the heart and reversal of the shunt into R → L shunt• R → L shunt with VSD & PDA → decompresses rt ventricle →RV has only concentric hypertrophy with no increase in size ( no heave)
  65. 65. • R → L shunt with ASD → RVH +dilatation →rt ven failure• R → L with ASD or VSD →mixing of blood reaches ascending aorta → distributed to whole systemic circulation → equal cyanosis• R → L with PDA → mixed blood directed downwards to descending aorta (junction is distal to lt Subclavian artery → cyanosis + clubbing of toes only (differential cyanosis)
  66. 66. Examination• Cyanosis• Clubbing• Fatigue• Effort intolerance• Dyspnea• h/o recurrent chest infection
  67. 67. Sounds• S1- normal• S2- ASD- wide fixed split VSD- single• PDA- normally split• Murmurs• Pulmonary regurgitation ( graham steel)• Ejection systolic
  68. 68. Investigations• CXR- prominance of pul artery,heart size – normal to large• ECG – RVH• ECHO-• Cardiac catherization-bi-directional shunt
  69. 69. Treatment• Heart-lung transplant is required to fully treat the syndrome• If this option is not available - treatment is palliative-• Anticoagulants• Pulmonary vasodilators• Antibiotic prophylaxis to prevent endocarditis• Phlebotomy to treat polycythemia• Maintaining proper fluid balance
