  • OBJECTIVE Inferior sinus venosus defect is an unusual form of interatrial communication with few published data on surgical outcomes. We sought to compare outcomes of surgical repair of inferior sinus venosus defect with those of large secundum atrial septal defects.

For each case, 2 controls… CONTINUE READING
