This video provides the clinical background, intraoperative technique, and postoperative result of a 16-month-old patient with Shone's complex (aortic valve, mitral valve, left ventricular, and aortic arch hypoplasia) and VSD who previously underwent a single ventricle pathway through the Glenn procedure stage, but then underwent a staged left ventricular recruitment operation to promote left ventricular growth for future consideration for biventricular conversion.

Patient Care and General Interest

This video illustrates a Norwood procedure with right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery conduit in a neonate with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (aortic atresia and mitral stenosis).

Vitanova and colleagues reviewed outcomes of systemic-to-pulmonary artery shunt surgery to identify potential risk factors for negative outcomes in neonates. Between 2000 and 2016, 305 shunts were implanted in 280 newborns, with a median age of 9 days old. Shunt failure occurred in 8% of patients, and shunt-related mortality was 4%.
