This video shows a teenager with a large neo-aortic root aneurysm and severe aortic valve regurgitation following a Ross procedure, which was treated with a valve-sparing aortic root replacement. The case also highlights the intra-operative management of inadvertent aortic injury during reentry in the setting of severe aortic regurgitation.

Congenital - Acyanotic
March 17, 2014
In this video, the authors demonstrate a safe, effective, and previously unreported minimally invasive approach to repair anomalous aortic origin of a coronary artery (AAOCA), using an upper hemi-sternotomy.
Totally thoracoscopic closure of ventricular septal defect without a robotically assisted surgical system: A summary of 119 cases
February 15, 2014
The authors performed VSD closure in children using a 3-port technique and compared the outcomes to patients undergoing open repair. The MIS approach was associated with shorter ICU stay, shorter hospital stay, fewer blood transfusions, and less opioid use.
Two Surgical Strategies for Correction of Anomalous Origin of the Right Coronary Artery in Young Adults
February 4, 2014
Coronary arterial anomalies are the second most common cause of sudden cardiac death in competitive athletes. In this video, the authors demonstrate two surgical strategies for management of anomalous origin of the right coronary artery with a “malignant” intramural or interarterial course.
Functional analysis of the anatomical right ventricular components: should assessment of right ventricular function after repair of tetralogy of Fallot be refined?
January 23, 2014
According to a study on 22 patients after repair of tetralogy of Fallot, ejection fraction of the right ventricular sinus and the extent of akinesia of the right ventricular outflow tract predict exercise capacity better than global right ventricular function.

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.
March 21, 2013
The superior cavopulmonary anastomosis is the first of two operations used in a staged Fontan approach for definitive palliation of functionally single ventricle hearts.
September 5, 2012
The authors demonstrate the steps for three-patch repair of congenital supravalvar aortic stenosis in a 5 month old.
November 8, 2011
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.

Double aortic arch is the most common of the complete vascular rings, causing tracheo-esophageal compression. This is a case report of a double aortic arch with balanced aortic arches, presenting with extrinsic tracheobronchial obstruction.
