The current surgical perspective to repair of atrioventricular septal defect with common atrioventricular junction.

Cardiol Young 2010 Dec;20 Suppl 3:120-7

Department of Cardiac Surgery, Queensland Paediatric Cardiac Service, Mater Children's Hospital, Brisbane, Australia.

Atrioventricular septal defect with common atrioventricular junction is a relatively common congenital cardiac malformation. It sometimes presents challenging surgical problems, especially when seen in combination with tetralogy of Fallot. We describe herein our current concepts regarding surgical repair of atrioventricular septal defect with and without tetralogy, discussing indications for surgery, timing, technical aspects, and outcomes.

Anomalous aortic origin of a coronary artery: a universally applicable surgical strategy.

Cardiol Young 2010 Dec;20 Suppl 3:44-9

Department of Cardiac Surgery, Queensland Paediatric Cardiac Service, Mater Children's Hospital, Brisbane, Australia.

The most commonly reported coronary arterial malformation, in accounts of sudden deaths, is anomalous aortic origin of a coronary artery. Anomalous coronary arteries may arise from the left, right, or non-coronary sinuses of Valsalva. Importantly, although the left coronary artery from the right sinus has the worst prognosis, sudden death has been reported in all variants of origin from the various sinuses of Valsalva. This paper describes a technique that addresses all of the problems relating to anomalous aortic origin of a coronary artery from the wrong sinus of Valsalva. This technique includes the transection of the ascending aorta and pulmonary trunk, coronary arterial enlargement with a pericardial patch, and lateral translocation of the pulmonary trunk to the left pulmonary artery. Anomalous aortic origin of a coronary artery from the wrong sinus of Valsalva is a potentially lethal cardiac anomaly that can be corrected in all cases using this simplified surgical technique that addresses the major anatomic and physiological problems.

Idiopathic pulmonary trunk aneurysm causing airway obstruction in an infant.

Heart Lung Circ 2007 Dec 12;16(6):454-6. Epub 2007 Mar 12.

Sydney Children's Hospital, High Street, Randwick, NSW 2031, Australia.

We report a case of idiopathic pulmonary trunk aneurysm in an infant, in which the main clinical picture was airway obstruction. Aneurysmorraphy was the chosen surgical approach and showed to be successful on 13 months follow-up.

A simple system to deliver blood cardioplegia.

Ann Thorac Surg 2005 Nov;80(5):1946-7

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Sydney Children's Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

We describe a simple and inexpensive system designed to deliver blood cardioplegia either diluted or at the patient's hematocrit, with controlled temperature and additive concentration. This system can be applied to any pump set, and suits any strategy for clinical myocardial preservation.
