BACKGROUND: Annulus-sparing (AS) repair of tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) carries a potential increased risk reoperation for re-stenosis and unproven benefits on right ventricular (RV) geometry. METHODS: Primary TOF repairs (N=434) between 2000 and 2012 were studied using risk-adjusted parametric techniques. Progression of cardiac dimensions were analyzed using repeated measures regression using reports of all 2,103 echocardiograms undertaken throughout the study period, to maximum follow-up 13...

BACKGROUND: Infants with severe tetralogy of Fallot may undergo (1) early primary surgical repair (EARLY) or (2) early transcatheter palliation (CATH) before delayed surgical repair. We compared these strategies with (3) elective single-stage tetralogy of Fallot repair (IDEAL). METHODS: From 2000 to 2012, 453 children underwent tetralogy of Fallot repair (excluding systemic-pulmonary shunts), including 383 in the IDEAL (75%), 42 in the EARLY (9%), and 28 in the CATH (6%) groups...

OBJECTIVES: To determine the early, intermediate and long-term outcomes of pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect (PA/VSD) Types I, II and III initially palliated by a right ventricle to pulmonary artery (RVPA) connection. METHODS: We performed a retrospective study from 2000 to 2014 that included 109 patients with PA/VSD who had undergone an RVPA connection (tetralogy of Fallot and PA/VSD Type IV excluded). The end-points of this strategy were adequate pulmonary artery tree post-palliation, second palliation, biventricular repair, right ventricular pressure post-biventricular repair and late reoperation...

BACKGROUND: Repair of complete atrioventricular canal (CAVC) with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is a challenging operation increasingly being performed as a complete, primary repair in infancy. Previous studies have focused on perioperative outcomes; however, midterm valve function, ventricular function, and residual obstruction have received little attention. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 20 patients who underwent CAVC/TOF repair (January 2005 to December 2014)...

Surgery for congenital valve anomalies in children is a challenging topic. We aim to assess early and late functional outcomes of CorMatrix scaffold after repair of aortic and pulmonary valves (PV) in congenital heart disease in a prospective nonrandomized clinical study on children with congenital aortic (Group 1) or PV (Group 2) disease. Primary endpoints were reoperation or reintervention on semilunar valves and echocardiographic evidence of regurgitation or stenosis greater than mild. Results of PV repair in tetralogy of Fallot were compared with a control group of patients who underwent PV repair with polytetrafluoroethylene...

BACKGROUND: Left pulmonary artery (LPA) stenosis with acute angulation is a common cause of reoperation after tetralogy of Fallot repair. We therefore investigated surgical outcomes of acute-angle correction angioplasty. METHODS: Between 2005 and 2012, 53 patients underwent operation for LPA stenosis as a concurrent procedure. We divided the patients into two groups according to the LPA ostium angulation: group I (acute angle, acute-angle correction angioplasty, n = 29) and group II (obtuse angle, conventional patch angioplasty, n = 24), encompassing subgroup type I (focal stenosis) and type II (diffuse stenosis)...

BACKGROUND: Primary repair is the preferred strategy for surgical treatment of complete atrioventricular septal defect combined with the tetralogy of Fallot. However, a staged approach may be preferable for very small or cyanotic infants. The long-term outcomes of infants undergoing staged vs primary repair were compared. METHODS: Data from 47 patients with complete atrioventricular septal defect combined with the tetralogy of Fallot who were operated on at our institution between 1974 and 2013 were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) is a common reoperation, typically required approximately 10 years following right ventricular outflow tract reconstruction and especially true in cases of tetralogy of Fallot. However, an improved prosthetic valve is required. METHODS AND RESULTS: A fresh decellularized pulmonary allograft was used for PVR to correct pulmonary valve regurgitation in a 35-year-old man 33 years following tetralogy of Fallot repair...

BACKGROUND: In patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (rTOF), multiple reoperations or percutaneous interventions after pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) may be necessary due to limited homograft durability. However, data to guide individualised prediction of homograft durability remain scarce. The aim of this study was to provide risk models for RV to pulmonary artery homograft durability. METHODS: This retrospective multicentre study included consecutive patients with rTOF who had undergone PVR at an age of >12 years...

BACKGROUND: Prospective data on long-term survival and clinical outcome beyond 30 years after surgical correction of tetralogy of Fallot are nonexistent. METHODS AND RESULTS: This longitudinal cohort study consists of the 144 patients with tetralogy of Fallot who underwent surgical repair at <15 years of age between 1968 and 1980 in our center. They are investigated every 10 years. Cumulative survival (data available for 136 patients) was 72% after 40 years. Late mortality was due to heart failure and ventricular fibrillation...

The long-term benefits of pulmonary annulus preservation in tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) repair in patients with a marginally small pulmonary annulus are controversial. We sought to determine whether pulmonary annulus preservation (AP) is superior to transannular patching (TAP) in lowering the risk of pulmonary valve implantation (PVI) long after the repair of ToF. Of the 255 patients who underwent total correction of ToF during infancy between January 1989 and December 2005, 114 patients (AP group = 57, TAP group = 57) were selected by propensity score matching for various preoperative variables, such as age and body weight at operation, sex, pulmonary artery size, pre-repair palliation, anatomical types of ventricular septal defect, and Z-score of pulmonary valve annulus diameter (PVA-Z)...

BACKGROUND: Subpulmonary ventricular outflow conduits are utilized routinely to repair complex congenital cardiac abnormalities, but are limited by the inevitable degeneration and need for reintervention. Data on conduit durability and propensity to dysfunction in the adult population are limited. METHODS: The study included 288 consecutive patients ≥18 years of age who were evaluated between 1991 and 2010 after placement of a ≥18 mm conduit. Freedom from hemodynamic conduit dysfunction served as our primary outcome...

Improved survival from congenital heart disease has led to an increasing need for complex reoperation by reentrant sternotomy. Peripheral cannulation and initiation of cardiopulmonary bypass prior to sternotomy to avoid the risk of cardiac injury and massive hemorrhage is an option in adults and larger children, but femoral vessel size precludes this strategy in infants. We describe the management of a high-risk reentry sternotomy in an infant for repair of a giant pseudoaneurysm after prior homograft repair of tetralogy of Fallot, using surgical dissection for suprasternal cannulation of the innominate artery and subxyphoid cannulation of the inferior vena cava...
