This video demonstrates a posterior tunnel Fontan and Senning-type pulmonary venous baffle in a patient with complex single-ventricle anatomy.

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 Aortic Translocation procedure was introduced for the management of patients with complex transposition of the great arteries (TGA) with a ventricular septal defect (VSD) and pulmonary stenosis (PS). The technique has proven especially useful in the subset of patients with anatomic variables that complicate the performance of a Rastelli repair.

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 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.

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.
