From May 1981 to September 1995, 38 patients received a superior vena cava-pulmonary artery anastomosis in association with biventricular repair. Patients were divided into four groups on the basis of indication for operation. Group A (19 patients) had a small physiologic right ventricle defined by tricuspid anulus z values or predicted right ventricular volume. Group B (11 patients) had a functionally compromised right ventricle. Group C (four patients) consisted of those receiving a superior… CONTINUE READING
