Numerous studies have pointed out the frequent association of tetralogy of Fallot (TF) with other cardiovascular defects and coronary tree anomalies. We found cardiac defects in 181 (68%) out of 265 patients with TF investigated by catheterization and selective coronary angiography. These anomalies were isolated in 88 cases (49%) and associated with others(More)
The surgical management of tetralogy of Fallot (TF) may be complicated by anomalies in the course and distribution of coronary arteries. Selective coronary angiography was performed in 119 cases of TF in order to prevent injury of aberrant vessels. In 11 patients, anomalies in the origin of coronary branches were revealed (five patients with a single(More)
Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries is an unusual cardiac malformation with discordant atrioventricular and ventriculoarterial alignments. Because knowledge of the coronary artery anatomy is a prerequisite for successful repair of this cardiac anomaly, selective coronary arteriography was performed in 13 children (4 male and 9 female;(More)
Nine patients with dissecting aneurysm of the ascending aorta (type A dissection) were operated upon. Six cases had an acute dissection, whereas three cases had a chronic type of dissection. The ascending aorta was replaced with a Dacron tubular prosthesis after solidification of the external and the internal layers of the two aortic stumps using a G.R.F.(More)
