Right ventricle to pulmonary artery conduit reoperations in patients with tetralogy of fallot or pulmonary atresia associated with ventricular septal defect.

Abstract

The short lifespan of right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery (RV-PA) conduits used in repairs of complex congenital heart defects makes future surgical replacement inevitable. Percutaneous pulmonary valve implantation (PPVI) now offers an attractive alternative to surgery in some patients. The objectives of this study were to examine the pattern of conduit… (More)
