Congenital - Cyanotic
September 27, 2018
September 11, 2018
The authors present two Nikaidoh procedures performed for different underlying anatomies and they discuss aspects of the operation.
Half-Turned Truncal Switch Operation for Transposition of the Great Arteries With Left Ventricular Outflow Obstruction
September 10, 2018
This video demonstrates the author’s approach to the half-turned truncal switch operation. Although the half-turned truncal switch operation is a more invasive surgical procedure, ideal configuration and hemodynamics can be established by maximal use of autologous tissue.
September 5, 2018
This video demonstrates en bloc rotation of the outflow tracts, a procedure that offers a complete anatomic repair of complex transposition of the great arteries with growth potential in all tubular structures and the option of preserving the native pulmonary valve in appropriate cases.
September 5, 2018
Viktor Hraska discusses the motivation behind CTSNet's first Congenital Guest Editor Series and describes the important congenital heart surgery techniques that it covers.
June 21, 2018
The authors demonstrate the successful repair of transposition of the great arteries with an associated aortopulmonary window in a neonate.
The Norwood Procedure With Coronary Transfer to the Pulmonary Root: A Modification Proposed by Me or by God?
June 18, 2018
The author reflects on a report of a baby with hypoplastic left heart syndrome in whom both of the coronary arteries arose from the pulmonary trunk.
Pulmonary Root Translocation Without LeCompte Maneuver for D-Transposition of the Great Arteries With Ventricular Septal Defect and Pulmonary Stenosis
March 28, 2018
This video demonstrates pulmonary root translocation for dextro-transposition of the great arteries. This technique maintains the growth potential of the native pulmonary valve and avoids the need for a right ventricle to pulmonary artery conduit and for coronary handling.
Single Stage Repair of Type A Interrupted Aortic Arch With Type III Aortopulmonary Window in a Preterm Child
January 8, 2018
Interrupted aortic arch occurring with an aortopulmonary window is an extremely rare anomaly. This video demonstrates a single stage repair in a preterm very-low birth weight neonate, using autologous pericardium to reconstruct the aorta.
March 21, 2017
The authors show how to perform a total correction of Tetralogy of Fallot with anomaly and pulmonary stenosis in 27-day-old male patient.
