Transventricular pulmonary valve implantation in corrected truncus arteriosus

Ann Thorac Surg. 2012 Feb;93(2):660-1. doi: 10.1016/j.athoracsur.2011.07.024.

Abstract

Conventional surgery for revision of right ventricular outflow tract conduits is complex and demanding. Percutaneous implantation of pulmonary valves may not be feasible in all cases. We describe a safe, alternative hybrid transapical approach from the right ventricle that avoids the extensive dissection and potential complications of revision surgery.
