Congenital heart disease and adolescence by Markus Schwerzmann( )

12 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides medical care givers with detailed information on those aspects of adolescence that are of significance in the setting of congenital heart disease (CHD), from anatomic and physiologic changes to behavioral issues. In addition, it explains how care should be organized in order to ensure that the needs of adolescents with CHD are fully met. Both theoretical and practical aspects of the switch from a pediatric to an adult health perspective in CHD patients are outlined in detail, drawing attention to the importance of a structured transition plan and other best practices. As the survival of children with complex CHD improves further, the number of adolescents with CHD will continue to grow. Awareness of the challenges that these patients face is essential if they are to be appropriately prepared to assume adult roles and functioning. Readers will find Congenital Heart Disease and Adolescence to be an excellent source of relevant knowledge and guidance. It has been written for a broad audience, bearing in mind that care in adolescents is an interdisciplinary task involving close collaboration among physicians, specialists, nurses, patients, and relatives

Patient-Reported Outcomes in Adults With Congenital Heart Disease Following Hospitalization (from APPROACH-IS) by Philip Moons( )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this international study, we (1) compared patient-reported outcomes (PROs) in adults with congenital heart disease (CHD) who had versus had not been hospitalized during the previous 12 month, (2) contrasted PROs in patients who had been hospitalized for cardiac surgery versus nonsurgical reasons, (3) assessed the magnitude of differences between the groups (i.e., effect sizes), and (4) explored differential effect sizes between countries. APPROACH-IS was a cross-sectional, observational study that enrolled 4,028 patients from 15 countries (median age 32 years; 53% females). Self-report questionnaires were administered to measure PROs: health status; anxiety and depression; and quality of life. Overall, 668 patients (17%) had been hospitalized in the previous 12 months. These patients reported poorer outcomes on all PROs, with the exception of anxiety. Patients who underwent cardiac surgery demonstrated a better quality of life compared with those who were hospitalized for nonsurgical reasons. For significant differences, the effect sizes were small, whereas they were negligible in nonsignificant comparisons. Substantial intercountry differences were observed. For various PROs, moderate to large effect sizes were found comparing different countries. In conclusion, adults with CHD who had undergone hospitalization in the previous year had poorer PROs than those who were medically stable. Researchers ought to account for the timing of recruitment when conducting PRO research as hospitalization can impact results
Physical Functioning, Mental Health, and Quality of Life in Different Congenital Heart Defects Comparative Analysis in 3538 Patients From 15 Countries by Philip Moons( )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Background: We compared physical functioning, mental health, and quality of life (QoL) of patients with different subtypes of congenital heart disease (CHD) in a large international sample and investigated the role of functional class in explaining the variance in outcomes across heart defects. Methods: In the cross-sectional Assessment of Patterns of Patient-Reported Outcome in Adults with Congenital Heart Disease-International Study (APPROACH-IS), we enrolled 4028 adult patients with CHD from 15 countries. Diagnostic groups with at least 50 patients were included in these analyses, yielding a sample of 3538 patients (median age: 32 years; 52% women). Physical functioning, mental health, and QoL were measured with the SF-12 health status survey, Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS), linear analog scale (LAS) and Satisfaction with Life Scale, respectively. Functional class was assessed using the patient-reported New York Heart Association (NYHA) class. Multivariable general linear mixed models were applied to assess the relationship between the type of CHD and patientreported outcomes, adjusted for patient characteristics, and with country as random effect. Results: Patients with coarctation of the aorta and those with isolated aortic valve disease reported the best physical functioning, mental health, and QoL. Patients with cyanotic heart disease or Eisenmenger syndrome had worst outcomes. The differences were statistically significant, above and beyond other patient characteristics. However, the explained variances were small (0.6% to 4.1%) and decreased further when functional status was added to the models (0.4% to 0.9%). Conclusions: Some types of CHD predict worse patient-reported outcomes. However, it appears that it is the functional status associated with the heart defect rather than the heart defect itself that shapes the outcomes
Sense of coherence in adults with congenital heart disease in 15 countries Patient characteristics, cultural dimensions and quality of life by Philip Moons( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Background: Previous studies have found that sense of coherence (SOC) is positively related to quality of life (QoL) in persons with chronic conditions. In congenital heart disease (CHD), the evidence is scant. Aims: We investigated (i) intercountry variation in SOC in a large international sample of adults with CHD; (ii) the relationship between demographic and clinical characteristics and SOC; (iii) the relationship between cultural dimensions of countries and SOC; and (iv) variation in relative importance of SOC in explaining QoL across the countries. Methods: APPROACH-IS was a cross-sectional, observational study, with 4028 patients from 15 countries enrolled. SOC was measured using the 13-item SOC scale (range 13â91) and QoL was assessed by a linear analog scale (range 0â100). Results: The mean SOC score was 65.5±13.2. Large intercountry variation was observed with the strongest SOC in Switzerland (68.8±11.1) and the lowest SOC in Japan (59.9±14.5). A lower SOC was associated with a younger age; lower educational level; with job seeking, being unemployed or disabled; unmarried, divorced or widowed; from a worse functional class; and simple CHD. Power distance index and individualism vs collectivism were cultural dimensions significantly related to SOC. SOC was positively associated with QoL in all participating countries and in the total sample, with an explained variance ranging from 5.8% in Argentina to 30.4% in Japan. Conclusion: In adults with CHD, SOC is positively associated with QoL. The implementation of SOC-enhancing interventions might improve QoL, but strategies would likely differ across countries given the substantial variation in explained variance. © The European Society of Cardiology 2020
