Single ventricle repair for conotruncal anomalies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Conotruncal heart defects are characterized by a defect in the conotruncal septum. Associated cardiac malformations are diverse and contribute to the complexity of treatment. Biventricular repair remains challenging, and as a result surgical management is controversial. Biventricular repair has advantages by establishing normal anatomy and physiology, however, it seems a high operative risk in certain more complex forms, and a univentricular heart repair is preferred in certain complex conotruncal anomalies.
