Transhepatic approach for catheter interventions in infants and children with congenital heart disease.
MedLine Citation:
PMID:  16598389     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
RESULTS: Transhepatic access could be established in all six patients (using a mirror image approach in children with left atrial isomerism) and the interventional procedures could be performed as planned. In one patient with implantation of a permanent pacemaker, a subcutaneous hematoma occurred, requiring blood transfusion.
CONCLUSION: In selected pediatric patients, transhepatic access for catheter intervention can easily be achieved.
