STUDIES UNIQUE IN THE WORLD

SCIENTIFIC PUBLICATIONS

OUR SCIENTIFIC PUBLICATIONS

SCIENTIFIC STUDIES AND DATA UNIQUE IN THE WORLD, RECOGNIZED BY THE INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY.

24 years of existence have enabled the Association Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaqueto bring to France, from 70 developing countries, more than 3,500 children with congenital cardiac pathologies, often very serious.

Thanks to the monitoring set up but also thanks to the involvement of volunteer doctors and surgeons within its medical pole, the Association has been able to develop a scientific research action based on the medium and long term results of the most complex cardiopathies.

This has led to the writing of several articles published in international medical journals. With low surgical mortality, despite the growth in complex cases, combined with excellent long-term follow-up (89% new cases), benefits Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaquefrom particularly relevant series and figures in its field and thus reinforces its reputation within the scientific community.

COMMON ARTERIAL TRUNK

Late management of the common arterial trunk: 20 years of humanitarian experience

Late management of truncus arteriosus: 20 years of humanitarian experience

Authors:

Dr. Marielle Gouton, Dr. Vincent Lucet, Dr. Olivier Bical, Pr. Francine Leca

Description :

The aim of this study was to analyse whether children with a late-diagnosed common artery trunk - or truncus arteriosus - (often after the age of 2) could still benefit from reconstructive surgery, whereas the data in the literature recommend management at 1 month of life to prevent the development of irreversible pulmonary arterial hypertension.

We describe the fate of the cohort of 41 children with common arterial trunk, aged an average of 3 years at the time of their care by Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque.

 

Keywords :

Common arterial trunk; truncus arteriosus; late surgery; humanitarian; survival

trunk-arteriel-common-cardiac surgery

SINGLE VENTRICLE

Single ventricle surgery in humanitarian practice: which surgery for which patients?

Surgery of single ventricles in humanitarian practice: surgery for which patients?

Authors:

Dr. Marielle Gouton, Dr. Vincent Lucet, Dr. Olivier Bical, Pr. Francine Leca

Description :

The objective of this study is to find out whether the care of children with single ventricle is possible - and legitimate - in the humanitarian framework in terms of monitoring and improving survival.

We are analyzing the fate of the 136 children with a single ventricle cared for by Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque.

Keywords :

Single ventricle; uni-ventricular hearts; surgery; Fontan; tricuspid atresia; humanitarian

Arterial Survival in Children :

Guinea 2022 Mission

Return on our 1st mission in Guinea!

The Association organizes on average 4 to 6 missions abroad per year. Some are "follow-up missions", when we go to countries we have been to before, and others are "discovery missions", when we send a team to a country we have never been to before. This was the case for the mission to Guinea from November 25 to December 1, 2022.

Mission Madagascar

Mission Madagascar

On October 24, 2019, a team flew to Mécénat Chirurgie CardiaqueMadagascar for a 9-day mission. We were keen to see our operated children again (to date, 220 Malagasy children have come, the first of this long list was welcomed in 1997) and to contribute to the care of children awaiting surgery.
