Surgical correction of double outlet right ventricle with noncommitted ventricular septal defect

Academic Article


  • A 3 year old boy underwent successful surgical correction of double outlet right ventricle {S,D,D}, noncommitted ventricular septal defect (VSD) of the endocardial cushion type, and pulmonary stenosis. The operation consisted of an internal baffle connecting the left ventricle to the aorta through the VSD. The pulmonary outflow tract was widened with a Dacron patch. Surgical options in this and other subsets of DORV are discussed.
