Atrially based pericardial tunnel for central pulmonary artery construction.

PMID:  9236367     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Discontinuity of central intrapericardial pulmonary arteries requires reconstruction of a pulmonary artery confluence before cavopulmonary connection, whether this connection be by bidirectional Glenn or Fontan procedure. Reconstruction of the central pulmonary arteries has previously been described using material of poor or no growth potential. A method is described for central pulmonary artery reconstruction that provides growth potential and is based on previous experience with Fontan lateral tunnel construction.
