Double-barrel right ventricular outflow: tetralogy of fallot annulus preservation technique.

PMID:  22916765     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
In patients with tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) repair and a borderline pulmonary valve annulus (PVA) size, surgical repair often necessitates a transannular incision and subsequent placement of a patch with or without a monocusp or, alternatively, a right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery conduit. We discuss here a technique in which the pulmonary valve annulus can be safely preserved, with infrequent postoperative issues as well as the potential for less incidence of right ventricular outflow intervention in the long term.
