Atrial septal defect with tricuspid valve regurgitation and heart failure in early childhood: report of a case with successful surgical management consisting of special patch closure technique and use of polydioxanone suture for the tricuspid annuloplasty



Atrial septal defect with tricuspid valve regurgitation and heart failure in early childhood: report of a case with successful surgical management consisting of special patch closure technique and use of polydioxanone suture for the tricuspid annuloplasty



Rinsho Kyobu Geka 9(3): 301-304



A management of surgery for infant having a small left ventricular cavity associated with atrial septal defect and tricuspid valve regurgitation was presented. A right upper part of the defect was remained in open during a patch closure of ASD and this portion was temporarily sutured by prolene stayed extracardialy through Waterston's groove. During 20 minutes after weaning from the cardiopulmonary bypass, left heart failure did not appear and then it was completely closed. DeVega's method was employed for the tricuspid valve regurgitation using a absorbale Polydioxanone suture, because of a growth of the sutured annulus. Postoperative course was uneventful and trivial tricuspid valve regurgitation was recognized in angiocardiographic studies performed in 2 weeks and 6 months after operation.
