Report of two cases
A new technique for the restoration of continuity between the pulmonary artery and the right ventricle in pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect without the use of a conduit is described. This was accomplished by anastomosing the inferior margin of the distal pulmonary artery to the apex of a T-shaped infundibular ventriculotomy to form the posterior wall of the reconstructed right ventricular outflow tract. A winged patch of bovine pericardium was then used for the anterior wall to complete reconstruction of the transannular right ventricular outflow tract. This technique was used successfully in two patients.
