Reoperation after surgical repair of tetralogy of fallot

Woo Sung Jang, Woong-Han Kim, Sungkyu Cho
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: 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...

OBJECTIVES: Our study is a population-based evaluation of the long-term results after surgical repair for tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). All patients operated on in the country since the first procedure were identified via the Finnish research database of paediatric cardiac surgery and the Finnish population register. The follow-up was 99% completed due to comprehensive coverage of the registers. METHODS: The Finnish research database of paediatric cardiac surgery, surgical logs, diagnosis cards and computer files of the hospitals were used for data collection...

BACKGROUND: This study we evaluate our results for surgical treatment of thoracic aortic aneurysms in patients with congenital heart disease. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifty patients aged between 12 and 71 years were treated for 51 thoracic aortic aneurysms. Forty-four of the patients developed aneurysms in the ascending aorta and seven developed aneurysms in the descending aorta. The underlying diseases for ascending aortic aneurysms included 16 congenital aortic stenosis, 16 bicuspid aortic valves, 4 transposition of the great arteries, 3 tetralogy of Fallot, 2 truncus arteriosus communis, and 3 other diseases...

OBJECTIVES: Management of complete atrioventricular (AV) septal defect (CAVSD) with a large ventricular component (>1 cm) remains controversial. The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility of the one-and-a-half patch technique in repairing this lesion. METHODS: This was a retrospective review of patients undergoing surgical repair of CAVSD with a large ventricular component (>1 cm). Of the 51 patients who were identified in our database (2005-13), 18 underwent the two-patch repair, 12 underwent the modified single-patch repair and 21 underwent the one-and-a-half-patch repair...

OBJECTIVE: This study reviewed surgical outcomes of staged repair for complete atrioventricular septal defect with tetralogy of Fallot, especially with focusing on the post-operative left-sided atrioventricular valve function. METHODS: Between 1992 and 2013, 10 patients with complete atrioventricular septal defect with tetralogy of Fallot underwent total correction by the following surgical strategy. Systemic-to-pulmonary shunt was placed at first at the mean age of 1...
