The Ross procedure is a valuable alternative for the surgical treatment of aortic valve disease in adolescent and young adult. However, neo-aortic root dilatation resulting in valve regurgitation is not uncommon. This video demonstrates the authors' technical modification that prevents this complication.

The RV-PA conduit or Sano modification, has recently been reintroduced into the Norwood armamentarium. Many centers, however, have been experiencing conduit obstruction with the Sano. This video demonstrates a modification of the technique used for the RV-PA conduit that has reduced the incidence of conduit obstruction at our institution.

Anomalous right coronary artery arising from the left aortic sinus is a rare malformation, which is known to be associated with an increased risk of sudden death. This video shows the currently favored approach for anatomical repair by an unroofing procedure that results in relocation of the coronary artery into the appropriate aortic sinus.
