This video highlights the repair of an anatomically challenging and hemodynamically significant scimitar vein using a unique interposed stretch PTFE graft to reduce the likelihood of tension and kinking associated with direct anastomosis.

Superior Approach (Tucker's Repair) for Repair of Supracardiac Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection (TAPVC)
December 29, 2021
This video shows the superior approach for repair of a supracardiac variant of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) in a 3-month-old boy.

Transcaval technique for repair of superior vena cava type, sinus venosus atrial septal defect with partial anomalous pulmonary venous drainage of right upper and middle pulmonary veins with patent foramen ovale without Warden procedure to avoid future SVC and rhythm problems.

This technique video demonstrates an exceptionally rare congenital case of an 8-month-old with common arterial trunk, complete atrioventricular septal defect, LSVC to LA, and right aortic arch with mirror-image branching who is s/p bilateral pulmonary artery banding.
Near-Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection Repair: Left Atrial Appendage to Vertical Vein Anastomosis
January 14, 2021
This video demonstrates a near-total anomalous pulmonary venous connection repair using left atrial appendage to vertical vein anastomosis.

A large series of closure of atrial septal defects ( mostly secundum) in adult and some adolescent patients. There are token cases of other (moderate to severe) congenital cases included in this narrative. The Onans offer details on the evolution of their Da Vinci program in Istanbul.

The anatomical correction for an obstructed mixed TAPVC in a 6-month-old child with failure to thrive is demonstrated in this video.
April 15, 2020
The authors present a novel technique for intracardiac baffle in scimitar syndrome that reroutes scimitar vein drainage to the left atrium by approximating the inferior border of a newly created atrial septal defect to the atrial tissue adjacent to the superior border of the scimitar vein.
