Significant intraoperative right ventricular outflow gradients after repair for tetralogy of Fallot: to revise or not to revise?
BACKGROUND This study was performed to define alternative parameters for the management of intraoperative residual right ventricular outflow obstruction (RVOTO) after transatrial repair of tetralogyExpand
Surgical experience with total correction of tetralogy of Fallot in infancy.
Encouraging results with primary repair of tetralogy of Fallot in infancy prompt us to continue this policy in suitable cases. Expand
Intraoperative echocardiography as a routine adjunct in assessing repair of congenital heart defects: experience with 300 cases.
It is concluded that intraoperative echocardiography is an inexpensive, accurate, valuable and safe addition to the perioperative care of patients and should be mandatory during all corrective surgical procedures for congenital heart disease. Expand
Unusual case of ruptured sinus of Valsalva: rupture into left ventricle cavity along with distortion of mitral valve requiring double valve replacement
Both aortic and mitral valves were irreparable and required a double valve replacement along with the closure of the neck of the aneurysmal cavity occupying the left atrial roof. Expand
Sevoflurane for induction and intubation in children undergoing congenital cardiac surgery.
The induction and intubation characteristics of sevoflurane were studied prospectively in 23 children, aged 3 months to 6 years, undergoing repair of congenital cardiac defects, who remained haemodynamically stable throughout induction and there were no adverse airway events. Expand
