The authors present a challenging case of device removal for a persistent ventricular septal defect with a significant left-to-right shunt.
Intraoperative Device Closure of a Perimembranous Ventricular Septal Defect Using the Right Thoracic Ventricle Approach
March 7, 2019
Chen and colleagues retrospectively compared outcomes for children who underwent intraoperative device closure of a perimembranous ventricular septal defect (VSD) via two different approaches. VSD closure was performed through a minimal incision in the lower sternum in 52 patients and through a right transthoracic minimal incision in 46 patients.

Chen and colleagues present their experience closing ventricular septal defects with a device using a minimally invasive surgical approach that does not require cardiopulmonary bypass. This approach relies on transthoracic echocardiography for device guidance and was substantially cheaper than transcatheter approaches.

Pulmonary Root Translocation Without LeCompte Maneuver for D-Transposition of the Great Arteries With Ventricular Septal Defect and Pulmonary Stenosis
March 28, 2018
This video demonstrates pulmonary root translocation for dextro-transposition of the great arteries. This technique maintains the growth potential of the native pulmonary valve and avoids the need for a right ventricle to pulmonary artery conduit and for coronary handling.
