Blood from the inferior vena cava (IVC) is diverted by an intraatrial baffle to(More)
A technique for reconstructing the right ventricular outflow tract in an infant with type II truncus arteriosus without using a prosthetic conduit is described. The truncal root is transected, and the confluence of branch pulmonary arteries is brought anterior to the aorta by using Lecompte's maneuver. The aorta is then reconstructed directly with an(More)
