Rheumatic fever is a serious illness. It often starts with a sore throat.  Without treatment, some sore throats can cause rheumatic fever which can lead to heart damage. If your child has had rheumatic fever, the best way to stop them having another attack is to make sure they have regular penicillin injections - on time. This video was produced by Kids Health, a joint initiative between the Paediatric Society of New Zealand and Starship Foundation, supported and funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Health.

Latent Rheumatic Heart Disease Identifying the Children at Highest Risk of Unfavorable Outcome (Circulation on the Run Podcast)

Welcome to Circulation on the Run, your weekly podcast summary and backstage pass to the journal and its editors.

Circulation on the Run podcast's feature paper (Latent Rheumatic Heart Disease: Identifying the Children at Highest Risk of Unfavorable Outcome) really reminds us that rheumatic heart disease remains the most common cardiovascular disease among the world's youth. These days, echocardiographic screening provides a promising tool for early detection. However, the utility of this tool really depends on knowing the natural history of screen detected rheumatic heart disease, so-called latent rheumatic heart disease. Now, that has remained clear until today's paper. I'm so pleased to have with us the first and corresponding author, Dr. Andrea Beaton, from Children's National Medical Center in Washington D.C., as well as Dr. Bongani Mayosi, Associate Editor from University of Cape Town, South Africa.

Dr. Carolyn Lam from Circulation Journal speaks with lead author Dr. Andrea Beaton and Dr. Bongani Mayosi, Associate Editor from University of Cape Town, South Africa. Link to full article and supplementary material (including a transcript of this podcast) is available here.
