Norwood Operation with Anterior Translocation of Pulmonary Artery.

Summary of "Norwood Operation with Anterior Translocation of Pulmonary Artery."

Even in the current era of improved clinical outcome of Norwood operation, postoperative pulmonary artery stenosis, recoarctation of the aorta, ventricular dysfunction, and atrioventricular valve regurgitation remain serious clinical concerns. We present 2 cases of successful total cavopulmonary connection after Norwood operation using the right ventricle-to-pulmonary artery shunt with translocation of the pulmonary bifurcation anterior to the reconstructed neoaortic arch. This modification provided a better surgical access to an obstructive pulmonary artery at staged single ventricle strategy and a space for the growth of the pulmonary arteries.

Bilateral Pulmonary Artery Banding before Norwood Procedure: Survival of High-Risk Patients.

 This study reports midterm results of high-risk patients with hypoplastic left ventricle treated with initial bilateral pulmonary artery banding (PAB) before secondary Norwood procedure (NP).

Pulmonary artery interventions after the arterial switch operation: Unique and significant risks.

In the modern era, results of the arterial switch operation (ASO) for transposition of the great arteries are excellent. However, because of the LeCompte maneuver, there may be a propensity for develo...

Anomalous right upper lobe pulmonary veins draining posterior to the pulmonary artery.

The anatomy of pulmonary vessels varies. The right upper pulmonary vein usually drains in front of the pulmonary artery to the left atrium. We herein describe a case of the right upper lobe pulmonary ...

The purpose in this case was to repair a less invasive approach than a standard sternotomy. Workup of asymptomatic patient with computerized tomography scan of chest revealed pulmonary artery aneurysm...

Modified Distal Dunk Technique for Right Ventricle to Pulmonary Artery Shunt in Stage 1 Palliation.

While the use of a right ventricle to pulmonary artery (RV-PA) shunt as a source of pulmonary blood flow in Stage 1 Norwood palliation is common,(1,2) there is no uniform agreement on the optimal surg...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

NECROSIS occurring in the ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY system, including branches such as Heubner's artery. These arteries supply blood to the medial and superior parts of the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERE, Infarction in the anterior cerebral artery usually results in sensory and motor impairment in the lower body.

Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.

Narrowing below the PULMONARY VALVE or well below it in the infundibuluar chamber where the pulmonary artery originates, usually caused by a defective VENTRICULAR SEPTUM or presence of fibrous tissues. It is characterized by restricted blood outflow from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the PULMONARY ARTERY, exertional fatigue, DYSPNEA, and chest discomfort.

A procedure in which total right atrial or total caval blood flow is channeled directly into the pulmonary artery or into a small right ventricle that serves only as a conduit. The principal congenital malformations for which this operation is useful are TRICUSPID ATRESIA and single ventricle with pulmonary stenosis.

Artery formed by the bifurcation of the internal carotid artery (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Branches of the anterior cerebral artery supply the CAUDATE NUCLEUS; INTERNAL CAPSULE; PUTAMEN; SEPTAL NUCLEI; GYRUS CINGULI; and surfaces of the FRONTAL LOBE and PARIETAL LOBE.
