List of Cardiac Defects and Their Associated Repairs
Please note: This is by no means a comprehensive list. There are other surgical procedures so please don’t treat this post like the Bible of cardiac defect repairs. Every child is different, every anatomy is different, and many patients will require nontraditional repairs. I did not mention certain procedures (such as the hemi-Fontan or Sano modification, etc) because that’s just too much information. One day I may make a surgical repair post for each defect (and at that time would detail modified, Hybrid, non-traditional approaches, etc), but until then: keep in mind that these are not the ONLY options.
This animation tells the story of how a young girl and her father overcome the death of a loved one and conquer fear as they brave through the transition to a new future. It is a fantastic story that involves chasing, falling from the sky, and a grand surprise in the end!
