ABSTRACT: Transcatheter occlusion and surgical ligation are the treatments of choice for most patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in children. Fifty-five children who had PDA completed a pulmonary function test and a symptom-limited treadmill exercise test from 2016 to 2018 at 1 medical center in southern Taiwan. The study group was divided into surgical ligation and catheterization groups, which were compared to a healthy control group matched for age, sex, and body mass index. Data about the performance on the exercise test, including metabolic equivalent at anaerobic threshold and peak, were analyzed. No differences in the pulmonary function and ventilatory parameters were observed between the surgery, catheterization, and control groups. Heart rate at peak and at anaerobic threshold significantly differed in the investigated groups. The post hoc analysis showed that the surgery group had a lower heart rate at peak and threshold compared to the catheterization and control groups (P = .02, P < .001, respectively). No significant difference was found between the catheterization group and the control group. A larger and younger group of patients were recruited, allowing for newer data about the cardiopulmonary function to be obtained. The findings suggest that patients with PDA could undergo physical training after intervention. The imposition of restrictions to limit sports activities should be avoided.

Spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a devastating disease, and gastrointestinal hemorrhage is one of several potential complications of acute strokes. We aim to analyze its prevalence, risk factors, and association with in-hospital prognosis following SAH. A total of 1047 adult patients with a primary diagnosis of spontaneous SAH were retrospectively enrolled. We retrieved medical information from the administrative database utilizing diagnostic and procedure codes of the International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-9-CM). Patients with SAH included 418 men and 629 women, and their mean age was 57.2 (standard deviation 14.6) years (range, 18-93 years). Gastrointestinal hemorrhage occurred in 30 of the 1047 patients, accounting for 2.9%. In a multivariate logistic regression model, the independent risk factors for gastrointestinal hemorrhage were liver disease and hydrocephalus. The in-hospital mortality rates were 43.3% and 29.3% in patients with and without gastrointestinal hemorrhage, respectively, but the difference was not statistically significant. In conclusion, the prevalence of gastrointestinal hemorrhage was 2.9% in patients hospitalized for spontaneous SAH. Underlying liver disease and the presence of hydrocephalus were both independent risk factors for this complication, which is a reminder to clinicians to pay increased attention in such cases.
