Tricuspid valve disease (congenital)

October 13, 2017
The authors report on the design and use of a growth-accommodating device that may have a variety of pediatric applications, including valve annuloplasty. The device consists of a biodegradable core and a tubular braided sleeve (woven much like a 'finger trap' toy).

The authors show how to perform a total correction of Tetralogy of Fallot with anomaly and pulmonary stenosis in 27-day-old male patient.

This video describes the technique of right ventricular papillary muscle approximation to the septum (RV-PMA) as an adjunct to cone reconstruction of Ebstein’s anomaly, and reviews some of the authors’ initial results.

Results of AV valve surgery in patients with Fontan circulation were evaluated over a 23 year period.  54 (9.3%) of patients requird AV valve surgery, mostly prior to the Fontan operation.    90% of patients were free from death or transplantation at 5 years; this fell to 81% at 10 years.  Nearly 45% required AV valve reoperation.  The rate of persis

We first demonstrate the key features of congenitally corrected transposition, namely the discordant connections across both the atrioventricular and ventriculo-arterial junctions. The two discordant connections cancel each other out, so that potentially the circulations are congenitally corrected.

This video demonstrates the cone reconstruction for tricuspid valve repair in a 35-year old patient with severe Ebstein anomaly, reduced exercise tolerance and echocardiographic and MRI findings of torrential valve regurgitation and severely enlarged right heart chambers.
