A 49-year-old female patient presented at our emergency room with complaints of palpitations and shortness of breath that had lasted for 5 days preceding the visit.

    Extracardiac Conduit Fontan Operation with Reduction Aortoplasty for Left Pulmonary Artery Compression after a Norwood Procedure in a Patient with Double-Inlet Left Ventricle

    Patients with double-inlet left ventricle usually have a small ascending aorta. In the Norwood procedure, which involves a staged operation, a neoaorta is constructed with a homograft, and the pulmonary artery plays a role in the systemic circulation. Dilatation or aneurysmal changes can occur over time due to the exposure of the neoaorta to systemic pressure, which may induce adverse effects on adjacent structures. We report a rare case of surgical repair for neoaortic root dilataiton with a ...
