Primary antiphospholipid syndrome: a cause of catastrophic shunt thrombosis in the newborn.

PMID:  10350114     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This is a unique report of systemic-to-pulmonary artery shunt thromboses secondary to primary antiphospholipid syndrome and antithrombin III deficiency in a neonate with cyanotic congenital heart disease. This infant with tricuspid atresia experienced thromboses of two modified Blalock-Taussig shunts en route to a bidirectional cavo-pulmonary shunt and potential future Fontan operation. Chronic warfarin anticoagulation has prevented additional thrombo-embolic events.
