Buratto and colleagues retrospectively analyzed the outcomes of 68 patients with atrioventricular septal defects (AVSD) who underwent pulmonary artery banding between 1983 and 2016. Of these, 40 patients had balanced AVSD and 28 patients had unbalanced AVSD.

The authors demonstrate the successful repair of transposition of the great arteries with an associated aortopulmonary window in a neonate.

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.

Liufu and colleagues evaluated outcomes for repair of supracardiac total anomalous pulmonary venous connection via the superior approach in 198 pediatric patients, with a median age of 95 days at the time of surgery.

Awori and colleagues reviewed 19 published studies on repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), representing 2,500 patients of which 54.8% had a transannular patch (TAP) inserted to relieve right ventricular outflow tract obstruction.

In this systematic review, Drury and colleagues evaluated 333 randomized trials in pediatric cardiac surgery that comprised approximately 24,000 children.

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.
