This is a video from the late Dr. James Tweddell demonstrating his surgical technique for repairing patients with complete, balanced atrioventricular septal defects.

This video presents the case of a seven-month-old boy with large subaortic ventricular septal defect (VSD) and a moderate degree of aortic valve (AV) regurgitation due to aortic valve cusp prolapse who underwent repair via a vertical right axillary thoracotomy (VRAT).

This video demonstrates the Nikaidoh procedure for TGA, VSD, and PS in a six-year-old boy where the routability of the VSD was doubtful.

The authors of this video demonstrate their technique for VSD closure through a right minimal invasive axillary thoracotomy.

This video explains how a ruptured sinus of Valsalva (RSOV) obscured the presence of ventricular septal defect (VSD) in a patient, who underwent device closure for the same. The presence of VSD caused hemolysis in the patient in the post procedure period, for which it required surgical removal of the device and closure of the RSOV and VSD.

This video is an illustration of the Nikaidoh operation, also referred to as aortic translocation repair, which has largely replaced the Rastelli operation for the indication of d-transposition of the great arteries with ventricular septal defect and pulmonary stenosis.

This video showcases a successful posterior postinfarction ventricular septal defect closure parachuting two composite handmade patches through the aortic valve and the tricuspid valve—without performing a left ventriculotomy.

This study reviewed records to establish how primary complete repair of pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect (PA-VSD) compares with staged repair. It was found that the survival rates of both methods are high, although the use of smaller shunts has resulted in earlier complete repair and is associated with increased risk of morbidity.

This video shows the technique of minimally invasive repair of partial atrioventricular septal defect in an eleven-year-old via vertical right axillary thoracotomy.
