Ring-reinforced Sano conduit at Norwood stage I reduces proximal conduit obstruction

Publication date2015

Reinterventions for proximal conduit obstruction or on the pulmonary arteries are frequent after the Sano-modified stage I Norwood palliation of hypoplastic left heart syndrome. We report our initial experience with a modified Sano technique using a ring-reinforced graft inserted transmurally through the right ventricle with a limited ventriculotomy.
