Abstract

A total of seven patients with truncus arteriosus and interrupted aortic arch (IAA) comprises our surgical experience in this condition. All underwent primary complete repair via median sternotomy between June 1985 and December 1989. Median age at repair was 8 days and median weight, 3.2 kg. Anatomy of these seven patients was truncus arteriosus type ''1 1/2 '' in five patients and type II in two patients, IAA type B in six patients and type A in one patient. Aortic arch was reconstructed by direct anastomosis of ascending aorta and descending aorta. Right ventricle to pulmonary artery continuity was established with a porcine valved conduit in four patients, aortic homograft in two, and aortic homograft monocusp patch in one. Three patients have required five reoperations (three in one patient). One reoperation was due to compression of the left main bronchus from the reconstructed aorta, one was due to obstruction of the aorta at the site of IAA repair, and one was due to compression of the left main bronchus, right pulmonary artery, and residual stenosis across the hypoplastic ascending aorta. There were no early or late deaths and all seven survivors are currently well with a mean follow-up of 29 months from initial repair.
