The completion Fontan operation is, as the name implies, the final stage of palliation for patients who have had previous surgery to address various types of single ventricle congenital heart disease.

Introductory Remarks
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.
March 17, 2013
In the second videoclip exploring congenitally corrected transposition, we show a specimen in which the potentially corrected circulatory patterns are uncorrected to a degree by the presence of a ventricular septal defect.
March 17, 2013
In one-third of patients with congenitally corrected transposition, there can be co-existing pulmonary stenosis. As explained, although it is stated that no heart exists in the Idriss archive with this lesion, this is not the case, and such a heart in shown in the next video clip.
March 17, 2013
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.

Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation raises technical problems in patients with end stage heart failure and huge left ventricular aneurysm. This video shows how an LVAD (Jarvik 2000) can be implanted safely even in patients requiring left ventricular aneurysm resection.

At the 2013 STS Annual Meeting CTSNet hosted a video roundtable with important perspectives on how valve clinic programs can assist in combating undertreated valvular heart disease. The discussion was moderated by Mike Mack, MD.

Left internal thoracic artery (ITA) grafting to the left anterior descending artery has long become the gold standard. There is a trend for bilateral ITA grafting, commonly to left-sided arteries. The video shows ITA skeletonization, with low harvesting time, and minimal chest and graft thermal trauma.
