AVM of liver or brain
pheochromocytoma CV finding
severe, paroxysmal hypertension
hyperthyroidism neonatal, CV etiology
high-output failure with brisk pulses
carnitine deficiency, CV findings
progressive cardiomyopathy onset 2-4yrs. with or without skeletal muscle weakness. Carnitine transports fatty acids into mitochondira for breakdown.
signs of pericarditis
constant chest pain for several days, worsened supine.
when to work-up HTN
systolic or diastolic > 95% regardless of FH
gradual onset of CHF in 4mo old
unobstructed total anomalous pulmonary venous return. supracardiac type: returns to confluence behind L atrium and flows to innominate and SVC, must have ASD.
sx of pulmonary AVM
shunting L heart blood to R bypassing lungs: cyanosis
truncus arteriosus commnunis sx
truncus overrides large VSD. CHF defelops over first month
hypoplastic L heart, sx
profound CHF, shock, death early. can be delayed but not past one month, due to PDA
TGA, sx
cyanosis within hrs.
hypoplastic L heart PE
S2 loud, single, and palpable. no murmur, weak pulses
age at which PDA normally closes in well preterm infants
4 days
largest risk factor for stroke in patient with any congenital heart problem
Fe deficiency anemia, which may be masked by "normal" Hb count (should be elevated in cyanotic CHD)
acquired conduction problem in previously healthy child
likely myocarditis (viral or autoimmune) which happens to affect the conduction pathways.
preductal anatomy, postductal anatomy
preductal: R arm
postductoal: L arm, both legs
Sats lower in preductal than postductal
hyperoxia challenge test. pulse ox vs PaO2
pulse ox is not important. may reach 100% with FiO2 100 but if PaO2 does not rise significantly above 100torr, the test is still abnormal.
truncus arteriosus presentation
first weeks with CHF and murmur due to hi pulmonary bood flow. cyanosis and hypoxia are mild. CXR: increased vasc.
syncope and pulseless arrest in exercise which revives. Nl EKG
abnormal coronoaries. do cath and stress test.
most common cause of sudden death in teen athlete
hypertrophic cardiomyopathy., would show up on EKG and echo
cardiac causes of wheezing
L heart obstruction, like coarct, aortic stenosis
Jones criteria
J: migratory polyarthritis
O: myocarditis with MR
N: subcutaneous nodules
E: erythema marginatum
S: chorea
2 major or 1 major 2 minor
minor: fever, lab findings of inflammation, arthralgia, hx of ARF, PR prolonged.
type of arthritis in RF
most common sx of acute rheumatic fever. large joints, knees, ankles, elbows, wrists. usually more than one simultaneously or sequentially
murmur of acute rheumatic fever
MR or AR almost always present if carditis is present. (50% of patients)
erythema marginatum, description
<10% of patients with acute rheumatic fever. nonpruritic, serpiginous or annuolar pink rash. trunk, inner proximal extrem. never on face. dissappears with cold, accentuated with heat. evanescent.
subcutaneous nodules, description
2-10% patients with rheumatic fever. hard, painless, freely movable nodules 2mm-2cm over extensor surface of joints., scalp, spine, elbow. not transient (lasts for weeks) associated with carditis.
JRA vs rheumatic fever arthritis
JRA often involves peripheral small joints and symmetrical large joints, no migratory. no strep, ASA does not "cure" within 48hrs.
ASD types
seccundum is most common (middle), fossa ovalis failure
primum is closes to TV and is involved in endocardial cusion defect.
ASD murmur
systolic ejection LUSB (relative PS), FIXED SPLIT S2. LLSB diastolic rumble from relative TS. The L -R shunt is silent (too low pressure)
ASD spontaneous closure rates
<3mm by 3mo all close by 1.5yr
3-8mm by 3mo 80% close
>8mm don't close

presentation of hypoplastic L heart
tachpnea and mild or no cyanosis single second hear sound. increased precordial activity.
pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum, presentation
single second heart sound. initially PDA supplies all pulmonary art blood and hi pulm resistance means little gradient across PDA, so little murmur. Very hypoxic, cyanotic
most likely complication of erythrocytosis in CHD
PaO2 of mixing lesions on superoxy test
40-150torr. as compared to TGA or pulm atresia which has 30-50
