Right Axillary Thoracotomy for Repair of a Wide Variety of Congenital Heart Defects in Infants and Children—Should This Be the New Standard: Webinar Audience Q&A
October 25, 2023
October 3, 2023
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.
Minimal Invasive Right Axillary Thoracotomy for Ventricular Septal Defect Closure: Tips and Pitfalls
August 22, 2023
The authors of this video demonstrate their technique for VSD closure through a right minimal invasive axillary thoracotomy.
August 14, 2023
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.
Repair of Partial Atrioventricular Septal Defect via Vertical Right Axillary Thoracotomy (VRAT) in Eleven-Year-Old
January 5, 2023
This video shows the technique of minimally invasive repair of partial atrioventricular septal defect in an eleven-year-old via vertical right axillary thoracotomy.
Concomitant Surgical Management of Postinfarctual Ventricular Septal Rupture and Left Anterior Ventricular Aneurysm
December 13, 2022
This video presents the case of a sixty-six-year-old woman with an association of anteroapical left ventricular aneurysm (LVA) and an anterior postinfarction ventricular septal defect (VSD).

A half-turned truncal root is a complex cardiac surgical procedure that can be carried out with good success. It provides good hemodynamics and better growth potential in children with complex TGA.
