PURPOSE: The ideal material for pediatric pulmonary artery (PA) augmentation is autologous pericardium. However, its utility for multistaged operations is limited. In this study, we applied an in vivo tissue-engineered autologous Biotube graft to a patient with congenital heart disease for the first time. DESCRIPTION: For molds of the Biotubes, two silicone 19F drain tubes were embedded in the subcutaneous spaces of a 2-year-old girl with a diagnosis of pulmonary atresia and ventricular septal defect with major aortopulmonary collateral arteries during palliative surgical procedures...

OBJECTIVES: Right ventricle to pulmonary artery connection (RVPA connection) without prosthetic material has been our ideal strategy to palliate pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect (VSD) or severe tetralogy of Fallot for the last decade. We speculate that RVPA connection ensures adequate postoperative haemodynamics for symptomatic neonates and promotes pulmonary artery rehabilitation. The present study was undertaken to assess the outcome of this strategy. METHODS: Between 2000 and 2010, among 107 patients who benefited from an RVPA connection, 57 were neonates...

INTRODUCTION: A better understanding of the morphology of complete atrioventricular septal defects (CAVSD) has impacted on surgical techniques and results. On some occasions the leaflet tissue is deficient and repair becomes difficult which leads to atrioventricular valve (AVV) regurgitation following the surgical repair of the AVSD. OBJECTIVES: This study was conducted to evaluate a modified technique in which two patches where used to close the complete atrioventricular septal defect (CAVSD) with augmentation of the left atrioventricular valve (AVV) with the ventricular septal defect (VSD) patch...

Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) is a cyanotic congenital cardiac defect that was first described by Stenson in 1672 and later named for Fallot, who in 1888 described it as a single pathological process responsible for (1) pulmonary outflow tract obstruction, (2) ventricular septal defect (VSD), (3) overriding aortic root, and (4) right ventricular hypertrophy. The surgical history of TOF began with the development of the systemic to pulmonary artery shunt (BT shunt) by Blalock, Taussig, and Thomas in 1944. Ten years later complete repair of TOF was performed by Lillehei using cross-circulation and by Kirklin with a primitive cardiopulmonary bypass circuit...

The management of congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries and associated lesions is frequently challenging. Significant pulmonary stenosis is a contraindication to the conventional double-switch. Instead repair may be accomplished by the Rastelli-Senning procedure, using an extracardiac conduit to achieve continuity between the morphological left ventricle and the pulmonary arteries. This however can be accompanied by conduit and intra-ventricular baffle-related problems that can necessitate surgical re-intervention and lead to late mortality...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Aortic valve repair with autologous pericardial leaflet extension is a valuable treatment option for aortic valve disease. The study aim was to examine and describe the histopathologic changes in native and pericardial extension leaflet tissues after this procedure. METHODS: The pathologic findings of nine patients (mean age 26.7 +/- 2.9 years; range: 0-77 years) who underwent aortic valve repair with autologous leaflet extension were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary artery sling is a rare vascular ring and is commonly associated with tracheal stenosis. Symptomatic newborns and infants with these complex lesions have a high mortality rate without surgical intervention. The ideal operation remains controversial, with debate focusing on the need for left pulmonary artery for reimplantation and the technique of tracheal reconstruction. METHODS: From 1983 to 2003, 14 patients with pulmonary artery sling (mean age, 7 months; range, 6 days to 27 months) underwent repair of pulmonary artery sling alone (6 patients), tracheoplasty alone (1 patient), and pulmonary artery sling repair with tracheoplasty (7 patients)...

Tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve has been classified to a few groups. The most severe one is characterized by symptomatic onset immediately after birth. The others are no or slightly symptomatic at least during their neonatal period. In a severely symptomatic 12-day-old neonate of tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve who had required intubation immediately after birth, tight pulmonary banding and left side modified Blalock-Taussig shunt were performed on emergency basis. Consequently, prior massive pulmonary regurgitation was decreased significantly...

From 1987 to 2000, 44 patients underwent anatomic repair of anomalies with pulmonary outflow obstruction by using pedicled autologous tissue in reconstructing the pulmonary outflow tract. Twenty-four patients had tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia (TOF/PA), from 1.7 years to 12.9 years of age (mean 9.0 years). In the group of TOF/PA, slit-widening method was performed in 22, autologous pericardial flap was used in 1, and atrial appendage was used in 4 patients. Eight patients had transposition of the great arteries with ventricular septal defect and pulmonary stenosis (TGA type III), from 9 months to 9...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Reoperation is inevitable for some patients with pulmonary atresia who receive a heterograft or homograft in a primary Rastelli operation. Nonetheless, the need for reoperation in patients with classic Fallot's tetralogy who have undergone total correction with a transannular patch is unusual. We sought to change pulmonary atresia into Fallot's tetralogy and used a transannular patch instead of the conventional Rastelli operation. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Valveless outflow direct reconstruction was performed on 10 consecutive patients with pulmonary atresia and ventricular septal defect between August 1997 and 1999...

We present a technical variant to reconstruct the right outflow tract in truncus type A3 (single pulmonary artery branch originating from the ascending aorta with common arterial valve and ventricular septal defect) with interposition of a ring of autologous arterial tissue and a bioconduit between the right ventricular infundibulum and the pulmonary artery branches. The final result is shown by postoperative angiogram which demonstrates an anatomically adequate reconstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract...

BACKGROUND: The spectrum of hypoplastic left heart disease is diverse but the surgical repair is strictly dichotomous, culminating in either a univentricular or a biventricular surgical repair. Although aortic atresia with a ventricular septal defect historically has been managed by conversion to a univentricular physiology, a biventricular repair occasionally has been attempted in stages or in conjunction with the implantation of multiple allografts or prosthetic conduits. Our repair strategy recently has evolved to the use of a modified single-stage biventricular repair using only autologous tissues without conduits...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS OF THE STUDY: The use of living, untreated autologous pericardium for patch repair in the left ventricular outflow tract was considered attractive in children. METHODS: Ventricular septal defect (VSD) closure with an untreated autologous pericardial patch was performed in 102 children of mean age 13.4 months (range: 1 to 73 months). Postoperative transthoracic Doppler echocardiography was performed in all children at a mean of nine weeks (range: one day to 50 weeks) after surgery...

A significant number of congenital heart defects share the common characteristic that surgical interventions to either "repair" or palliate these defects generally require the use of nonautologous conduits to substitute for an absent right ventricle to pulmonary artery connection. Tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia, truncus arteriosus, transposition of the great arteries with ventricular septal defect and left ventricular outflow tract obstruction, and certain forms of double-outlet right ventricle are among the defects in which these conduits are used to create a pathway from the right ventricle to the pulmonary arteries...
