This article is a review of our experience with the two-patch repair of complete atrioventricularis communis. From October 1988 through December 2005, 222 infants and children underwent surgery. There were six early (2.7%) and six late (2.7%) deaths. Reoperation was required in 22 patients (10%) for residual or recurrent mitral regurgitation or stenosis, subaortic stenosis, repair of a ventricular septal defect with or without pulmonary stenosis, placement of a right heart valved conduit, and/or placement of a permanent cardiac pacemaker. All patients survived second operations and no child required early or late mitral valve replacement. The two-patch repair is a reliable surgical technique resulting in low mortality and a low need for reoperation.
