BACKGROUND Congenitally corrected TGA (CC-TGA) is characterized by discordant atrioventricular and ventriculo arterial connections. In absence of right ventricular outflow tract obstruction (RVOTO), repair by atrial and arterial switches remains a challenging procedure for which long term follow-up is uncertain. METHODS From 1995 to 2007, 20 patients(More)
OBJECTIVE Patients with idiopathic pulmonary hypertension are at risk for right-sided heart failure and sudden death. Despite improvement in pharmacologic management, some still require lung transplantation. Potts anastomosis has been demonstrated as a good palliation in children to alleviate symptoms and medical therapy despite desaturation in the lower(More)
BACKGROUND Uncommonly, adults with functionally univentricular hearts are becoming candidates for a Fontan procedure. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the course of patients undergoing the modified Fontan procedure with an extracardiac conduit in recent years. METHODS Between January 2003 and December 2013, 32 adult patients (17 female and 15(More)
OBJECTIVES The objectives were to determine in patients with Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) and abnormal coronary artery (ACA): the long-term outcomes of different surgical strategies; the risk factors for right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) obstruction, reoperation, heart failure and mortality. To date, the surgical strategies and prognostic factors for(More)
BACKGROUND Early detection of right ventricular (RV) failure is required to improve the management of patients with congenital heart diseases. The aim of this study was to validate echocardiography for the early detection of overloaded RV dysfunction, compared with hemodynamic and myocyte contractility assessment. METHODS Using a porcine model reproducing(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the long-term results of the arterial switch operation (ASO) for Taussig-Bing Anomaly (TBA) and identify risk factors affecting outcomes. METHODS Retrospective review and late follow-up was performed for all TBA patients from 1997 to 2010 (follow-up >3 years). Selection criteria included the absence of mitro-pulmonary continuity. (More)
