VSD

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.

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.

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.

The authors present two Nikaidoh procedures performed for different underlying anatomies and they discuss aspects of the operation.

The Nikaidoh procedure is a useful technique for patients with complex transposition of the great arteries.

Viktor Hraska discusses the motivation behind CTSNet's first Congenital Guest Editor Series and describes the important congenital heart surgery techniques that it covers.

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.
