Pediheart Podcast #144: Hydroxychloroquine To Prevent Recurrent Heart Block In The Offspring Of Anti-SSA/Ro-Positive Mothers

This week we review the topic of heart block in the newborn or fetus and review a novel prospective trial assessment of hydroxychloroquine to reduce recurrences of heart block in the offspring of Anti-SSA/Ro-positive mothers. We speak with Professor Jill Buyon and Professor Peter Izmirly, both of NYU Medical Center about a recent multi center trial assessing the impact of this agent for this purpose. How effective was this drug and what if any complications were encountered? What is next in the study of this topic? Drs. Buyon and Izmirly share many insights this week. doi: 10.1016/j.jacc.2020.05.045
