Primary antiphospholipid syndrome: a cause of catastrophic shunt thrombosis in the newborn
Deally C., Hancock B. J., Giddins N., Hawkins L., Odim J.
From the Children’s Heart Center Winnipeg, Manitoba, USA
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 bi-directional cavo-pulmonary shunt and potential future Fontan operation. Chronic warfarin anticoagulation has prevented additional thrombo-embolic events.
