Abstract

Total surgical repair of a Taussig-Bing malformation in an 8-year-old boy was accomplished successfully after previous palliative procedures. The child had undergone a Rashkind septostomy when he was 10 days old, banding of the pulmonary artery and division of a patent ductus arteriosus when he was 2 weeks old, and a Blalock-Hanlon septectomy when he was 1 year old. Complete repair involved patching the ventricular septal defect (VSD), debanding and patching the pulmonary artery, and rerouting the venous return by performing a Mustard procedure. Because of its high location, the VSD could not be reached properly through the tricuspid valve and was approached through the pulmonary arteriotomy. Excellent exposure was obtained by retracting the pulmonary valve, and patch closure of the defect was achieved without difficulties. We believe this approach to the VSD is preferable because no incision is necessary in the right ventricle. This is important since the right ventricle becomes the systemic ventricle after the Mustard operation.
