Congenital

March 17, 2013
We first demonstrate the key features of congenitally corrected transposition, namely the discordant connections across both the atrioventricular and ventriculo-arterial junctions. The two discordant connections cancel each other out, so that potentially the circulations are congenitally corrected.

In this last video in the series, we examine three specimens with rarer lesions associated with congenitally corrected transposition. The first is an example of a heart with discordant atrioventricular, but concordant ventriculo-arterial connections.

This video demonstrates the cone reconstruction for tricuspid valve repair in a 35-year old patient with severe Ebstein anomaly, reduced exercise tolerance and echocardiographic and MRI findings of torrential valve regurgitation and severely enlarged right heart chambers.

Aortopulmonary window associated with interrupted aortic arch is a rare malformation. This video shows the one-stage repair of the defect in a 2.4 kg neonate.

The authors demonstrate the steps for three-patch repair of congenital supravalvar aortic stenosis in a 5 month old.

The lack of an ideal valve substitute in the congenitally affected aortic valve has raised the interest in aortic valvuloplasty by leaflet extensions. Several techniques using native or xenopericardium have been described for aortic valve repair, however, the ideal material for leaflet extensions still remains controversial.

In this video, the authors demonstrate their current technique and the pitfalls encountered when performing bioprosthetic pulmonary valve replacement in the adult congenital patient.
