  • At New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, a large tertiary cardiac center, 13.5% of parents of fetuses or neonates with isolated SV CHD opted for NPC. Twenty-six of 29 newborns with SV CHD treated with NPC died. Of the remaining, 2 neonates with mixing lesions are alive at 3 and 5¬†years of age, and 1 neonate was initially treated with NPC and then pursued surgical palliation. These results suggest that NPC is a reasonable choice for neonates with SV CHD.
