PMID:  9291547     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
An infant with truncus arteriosus and severe dysfunction of the truncal valve including both stenosis and insufficiency successfully underwent primary repair. This included the insertion of two separate valved homograft conduits. Early outcome has been excellent and the patient is doing well after 6 months with only echocardiographic evidence of mild aortic valve regurgitation. Double-homograft repair is a realistic option in cases of truncus arteriosus with severe malformation of the truncal valve.
