Prominent publications by Pietro Sciacca

KOL-Index: 11283 . BACKGROUND: Rhabdomyomas are the most common type of cardiac tumors in children. Anatomically, they can be considered as hamartomas. They are usually randomly diagnosed antenatally or postnatally sometimes presenting in the neonatal period with haemodynamic compromise or severe arrhythmias although most neonatal cases remain asymptomatic. Typically rhabdomyomas are multiple lesions and ...

KOL-Index: 8929 . BACKGROUND: Sustained Lung Inflation (SLI) is a maneuver of lung recruitment in preterm newborns at birth that can facilitate the achieving of larger inflation volumes, leading to the clearance of lung fluid and formation of functional residual capacity (FRC). AIM: To investigate if Sustained Lung Inflation (SLI) reduces the need of invasive procedures and iatrogenic risks. STUDY DESIGN: ...

KOL-Index: 7349 . Globin gene mapping analyses of DNA from numerous Black babies, and from newborns from Sardinia, Sicily, Turkey, and Spain have identified the following: A high incidence of alpha-thalassemia-2 heterozygotes among Black babies with less than 1% Hb Bart's at birth and a high incidence of alpha-thalassemia-2 among Sardinians, but not among Sicilian, Turkish, and Spanish babies. A relatively ...

KOL-Index: 5033 . BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular involvement in Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a not rare condition, although the prevalence of subclinical pulmonary hypertension (PH) and cardiac dysfunction is not known in the early stages of CF progression. The aim of our study was to assess cardiac involvement in children and adults affected by cystic fibrosis compared with healthy subjects of same age using ...

KOL-Index: 4211 . BACKGROUND: Adolescents with type 1 diabetes and obesity present higher cardiovascular risk and ambulatory blood pressure measurements (ABPM) has been shown to predict vascular events, especially by identifying the nondipper status. The aim of our observational cross-sectional study conducted in adolescents with type 1 diabetes, overweight subjects and healthy controls was to assess mean ...

KOL-Index: 3354 . It is well known that the natural history of chronic heart failure (CHF),regardless of age and aetiology,is characterized by progressive cardiac dysfunction refractory to conventional cardiokinetic, diuretic and peripheral vasodilator therapy. Several previous studies, both in animals and humans, showed that the key pathogenetic element of CHF negative clinical evolution is constituted by ...

KOL-Index: 2689 . We described two sibs born to consanguineous Sicilian parents who died of severe congenital heart malformation. Both had dextrocardia; however, only the girl had situs viscerum inversus. At necropsy she was found to have a right spleen and right pulmonary isomerism (three lobes in each lung, as commonly found in the asplenia syndrome). This observation, together with other literature ...

KOL-Index: 2113 . BACKGROUND: Kawasaki disease is a multi-system vasculitis which usually occurs in children under 5 years of age. In infants under three months of age, it is very rare and usually associated with a high incidence of incomplete or atypical forms, often unresponsive to treatment. This condition increases the risk of cardiovascular complications such as coronary artery aneurysms. CASE ...

KOL-Index: 1994 . BACKGROUND: Kawasaki disease (KD) is a generalized systemic vasculitis of unknown etiology involving medium and small size blood vessels, particularly the coronary arteries. In these vessels a progressive stenosis may result from active remodeling with an intimal proliferation and neoangiogenesis. The aim of our study was to assess, by using high-resolution transthoracic 2D ...
