OBJECTIVES Right ventricular sinus myectomy has been proposed for pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum for morphology falling within the uncertain area for eventual biventricular repair. Our objective was to evaluate right ventricular sinus myectomy by characterizing the morphologic spectrum of these patients, determining whether biventricular repair was achieved, ascertaining growth of right-sided structures, and assessing survival. METHODS We evaluated medical records, all… CONTINUE READING
