First described in 1965 by Johnson and Wilcox, partial absence of the tricuspid valve (TV) associated with a ventricular septal defect(VSD) is a very rare malformation.(1) Heart failure secondary to severe TV regurgitation results in-utero fetal compromise. (2) We present here a fetus with partial absence of the tricuspid valve with conoventricular septal defect.
Aortic atresia is uncommonly associated with atrioventricular and ventriculoarterial discordance.(1) Presence of severe regurgitation of Ebsteinoid malformation of the tricuspid valve in this subset results in reduced aortic blood flow in-utero. The hemodynamic explanation of this anomaly was reported by Celermajer and colleagues.(2) We report here a term neonate with this anomaly detect antenatally.
The incidence of unusual coronary patterns including single coronary artery is high in Taussig-Bing anomaly (TBA). The relocation of a single coronary artery from a non-facing sinus can be technically challenging with implications on early and late outcomes. Many innovative techniques for coronary transfer have been described and no coronary pattern precludes arterial switch operation in the current era. We describe a technique of coronary transfer using autologous pericardial tube extension with good early outcome.
