Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Left ventricular outflow tract stenosis represents 1-2 % of all congenital anomalies. In particular, tunnel-like left ventricular stenosis which is one type of fixed left ventricular outflow stenosis requires aggressive surgery to reduce the left ventricular outflow gradient. The purpose of the modified Konno procedure is to release fixed left ventricular outflow tract stenosis while preserving the native aortic valve and its function. Although the clinical results of the modified Konno procedure are acceptable, it is necessary to precisely understand this procedure and the anatomy of the left ventricular outflow tract in order to avoid complications.
