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.

This study analyzed factors associated with aortopulmonary amalgamation or Ross-Konno procedure in patients who underwent surgical repair for interrupted aortic arch/VSD.
January 13, 2021
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.
One-Stage Midline Unifocalization With Complete Repair of Pulmonary Atresia, Ventricular Septal Defect, and Major Aortopulmonary Collaterals
June 29, 2020
This is a single stage, midline complete repair of pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect, major aortopulmonary collaterals, and absent intrapericardial native pulmonary arteries.
Long-Term Outcomes After Conventional Surgical Repair Versus Perventricular Device Occlusion for Doubly Committed Subarterial Ventricular Septal Defects: A Propensity Score Matched Study
May 29, 2020
Liao et al. investigated the long-term outcome of conventional surgery repair and perventricular device occlusion for doubly committed subarterial (DCSA) VSD. They analyzed single-center results using propensity score matching. There were no differences in adverse events within the two groups.

This video demonstrates Dr James Tweddell's surgical management of a neonatal patient with a double outlet right ventricle with subpulmonary ventricular septal defect (Taussig-Bing anomaly), d-malposed great vessels, and severely hypoplastic aortic arch.

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.
