Brom’s three-patch aortoplasty is indicated for the repair of supravalvar aortic stenosis, which can occur as an isolated defect or as a part of Williams syndrom.  This syndrome is characterized by supravalvar aortic stenosis, elfin craniofacial features, peripheral pulmonary artery stenosis, and hypercalcemia.

The “sutureless” neoatrium technique was initially described for anastomotic stenosis occurring after repair of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (post-repair pulmonary vein stenosis, PRPVS). The procedure is also helpful in patients with congenital pulmonary vein stenosis and has been used in selected patients on the initial presentation of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection.

The surgical management of patients with tetralogy of Fallot and significant right ventricular outflow tract obstruction (RVOTO) remains controversial. The authors describe the use of a monocusp in patients with right ventricular outflow tract obstruction.

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.

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.
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 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.
