However, high mortality and reoperation rates are still reported. This study reviews our surgical experience in patients with complete AVSD and TOF or DORV. METHODS Between 1980 and 2010, 48 consecutive patients with AVSD associated with TOF (n = 26) or DORV (n = 22) underwent complete repair; of which, 19… CONTINUE READING
