Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The absence of the pulmonary valve in connection with tricuspid atresia and intact ventricular septum is a rare malformation, associated with a poor prognosis. The right ventricle is severely hypertrophied, resembling a cardiac mass protruding into the left ventricular outflow tract. We report such a case that underwent successful palliation with a Blalock-Taussig shunt followed by a superior cavopulmonary anastomosis.
