    Abstract: The natural history of total pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) is unfavorable per se. We describe a modified technique of intra-atrial repair in infants with supra- and infracardiac TAPVC. Twenty patients were treated. The median age at repair was 16 (range 3–62) days....

    We report a case of a 54-year-old man presenting with a right atrial mass 7 months after undergoing a left atrial myxoma excision surgery. The differential diagnosis included recurrent myxoma or thrombus. The patient underwent repeat open sternotomy on cardiopulmonary bypass. Histopathological...

    A simplified means of arterial cannulation for cardiopulmonary bypass in small neonates and those infants with diminutive aortas, or requiring reconstruction of the ascending aorta, is presented. It involves suturing a long 3.5 mm graft to the innominate artery and inserting the arterial cannula...

    Untreated patent ductus arteriosus carries a higher risk in adults than in children, especially when the defect is large (>4.0 mm in diameter), short, or friable. Therefore, various technical precautions have been suggested for application during surgical closure of a patent ductus arteriosus in...

    Background: We hypothesize that implantation of left ventricular assist device through off-pump technique is feasible and has a comparable result to implantation on cardiopulmonary bypass and could improve one-year survival. Methods: This retrospective, observational, single-center study was...

    Transcaval extension of the thymoma to the right atrium has very rarely been reported, and cardiopulmonary bypass is recommended for successful resection. An invasive thymoma with intravascular invasion of the superior vena cava, and the left innominate vein extending into the right atrium was...
