This video shows a female toddler with diagnosed idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy. The patient presented with worsening symptoms of congestive heart failure and was treated with the help of a left ventricular assist device.
Two Surgical Strategies for Correction of Anomalous Origin of the Right Coronary Artery in Young Adults
February 4, 2014
Coronary arterial anomalies are the second most common cause of sudden cardiac death in competitive athletes. In this video, the authors demonstrate two surgical strategies for management of anomalous origin of the right coronary artery with a “malignant” intramural or interarterial course.

In this video, the authors show how to start veno-arterial ECMO support through cervical cannulation, using the right internal jugular vein and right common carotid artery. This site is chosen over the femoral approach, as it avoids the associated complications, particularly in newborns and non-walking infants.

The cause of pectus deformities is thought to be abnormal elongation and/or distorsion of the rib cartilages. A simplified open repair is described based on the subperichondrial resection of the abnormal cartilages, and in the case of pectus excavatum, the use of an easily removable metallic strut.

Valvuloplasty by Polytetrafluorethylene Leaflet Extensions for Bicuspid Aortic Valve in a 17-Year-Old Patient
July 11, 2012
The lack of an ideal valve substitute in the congenitally affected aortic valve has raised the interest in aortic valvuloplasty by leaflet extensions. Several techniques using native or xenopericardium have been described for aortic valve repair, however, the ideal material for leaflet extensions still remains controversial.
