Repair of common arterial trunk using an extracardiac right ventricular to pulmonary arterial conduit is the preferred method in most cardiac surgical centres. Reoperation is a fact of life for survivors of common arterial trunk and related cardiac lesions who have undergone such repairs. Long-term survivors may require periodic conduit revisions, with a potentially escalating technical difficulty and risk. Herein we present an analysis of the currently available choices for extracardiac conduits, and outline what we consider to be a safe and reliable surgical strategy for conduit revision.
