Anatomic Repair of Congenitally Corrected Transposition: 1.5V Repair with Hemi-Mustard and Rastelli Procedures
January 12, 2022
We present an operative technique video of the anatomic repair of congenitally corrected transposition (ccTGA) with ventricular septal defect (VSD), pulmonary atresia (PS), and mild right ventricular hypoplasia in a 2-year-old palliated with a 3.5mm rmBTS (and coronary artery fistula ligation) in the neonatal period, followed by a rmBTS takedown and bidirectional Glenn shunt at 4m/o.

Extensive Repair of an Injured Bicuspid Pulmonary Valve Following Balloon Dilatation By Using Autologous Pericardium and Repair of a Flail Tricuspid Valve
June 3, 2021
An augmentation of the pulmonary valve with pericardial patch, suture repair of pulmonary leaflet, artificial chordae replacement of the tricuspid anterior leaflet, valvuloplasty, and annuloplasty that ended with trace tricuspid regurgitation and trace pulmonary regurgitation is shown in this video.
