PMID:  3415878     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A patient with transposition of the great arteries, ventricular septal defect, and obstruction of the left ventricular outflow tract underwent a Rastelli repair. Stenosis of the tricuspid valve was not recognised before or during operation; this severely compromised the postoperative haemodynamic function and necessitated reoperation. Insertion of a second homograft from the right atrium to the right ventricle bypassed the stenosis and resulted in a complete recovery with maintenance of a biventricular circulation.
