PMID:  17285479     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report on a male newborn requiring repair of a huge left apical diverticulum leading to progressive heart failure and extensive ventricular arrhythmia. At the age of 11 days, a modified Dor procedure using an autologous endoventricular pericardial patch was performed. Postoperatively, a significant reduction of ventricular extrasystole was evident. One year postoperatively, the infant demonstrates a normal cognitive and somatic development without clinical signs of cardiac failure.
