Summary of "'External Plication of the Atrialised Right Ventricle in the Repair of Ebstein's Anomaly'."

We describe a change in our technique for plication of the atrialised right ventricle during a Cone repair. The plication was performed from the 'Outside' -on a beating heart. Advantages that we expect are- all major coronaries are better seen when full of blood and can be avoided, if a major vessel is compromised - EKG changes should point it out immediately, there is a small but significant saving in terms of arrest time and if the plication needs to be taken down because of an adverse coronary event- this can be done without the need of another cardioplegia.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A congenital heart defect characterized by downward or apical displacement of the TRICUSPID VALVE, usually with the septal and posterior leaflets being attached to the wall of the RIGHT VENTRICLE. It is characterized by a huge RIGHT ATRIUM and a small and less effective right ventricle.

Inability to prevent a clinical deterioration resulting from a complication of an underlying medical condition or a complication of medical care. It implies that common risk factors for such a complication were not recognized in a timely manner or treated appropriately.

The reconstruction of a continuous two-stranded DNA molecule without mismatch from a molecule which contained damaged regions. The major repair mechanisms are excision repair, in which defective regions in one strand are excised and resynthesized using the complementary base pairing information in the intact strand; photoreactivation repair, in which the lethal and mutagenic effects of ultraviolet light are eliminated; and post-replication repair, in which the primary lesions are not repaired, but the gaps in one daughter duplex are filled in by incorporation of portions of the other (undamaged) daughter duplex. Excision repair and post-replication repair are sometimes referred to as "dark repair" because they do not require light.

The geometric and structural changes that the HEART VENTRICLES undergo, usually following MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION. It comprises expansion of the infarct and dilatation of the healthy ventricle segments. While most prevalent in the left ventricle, it can also occur in the right ventricle.

A state of unconsciousness as a complication of diabetes mellitus. It occurs in cases of extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA or extreme HYPOGLYCEMIA as a complication of INSULIN therapy.
