Aortic arch anomalies

January 18, 2019
This video demonstrates an anterior translocation of the circumflex aortic arch for the management of esophageal compression.
January 7, 2019
The authors demonstrate a full surgical reposition of a right anomalous pulmonary artery.
June 5, 2018
This video demonstrates a technique of posterior aortopexy to manage airway compression.

Patient Care A baby in Taiwan is the third-lightest to have undergone repair of a type A interrupted aortic arch and aortopulmonary window.
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.

The authors present a successful surgical treatment in a 14-year-old girl with Loeys-Dietz syndrome; a redo aortic arch and ascending aorta replacement with a valve-sparing operation was performed.
April 22, 2015
This video demonstrates a Brom aortoplasty performed on a 12-year-old boy.
February 3, 2015
This video shows the surgical correction of two large thoracic aortic aneurysms in a 15-year-old girl.
January 14, 2015
Deep hypothermia and cardioplegic myocardial arrest, with or without selective cerebral perfusion, is traditionally performed during aortic arch reconstruction. In this video, the authors describe a technique for selective cerebral perfusion combined with controlled coronary perfusion for hypoplastic aortic arch repair.
October 1, 2014
Optimal management of a VSD at the time of coarctation repair is controversial.  The retrospective review of the Pediatric Cardiac Care Consortium 1982-2007 evaluated outcomes for 2,022 patients.    The presence of a VSD increased operative mortality 4-fold to 8.3%.  Patients underwent coarct repair and VSD closure at an older age (87 days) than for
