When and How to Enlarge the Small Aortic Root

Tran, Phan Kiet LU and Tsang, Victor (2016) In Seminars in Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery: Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Annual 19(1). p.55-58
Abstract

Successful enlargement of the small aortic root in children has remained a management challenge, particularly in the neonates and small infants. Achieving this aim requires thorough understanding of the anatomic features of the left ventricular outflow tract, careful patient selection, and skilful execution of complex surgery. This article reviews the anatomical principles upon which the surgical techniques rely, the decision-making, the timing of surgery, the surgical options, and the outcomes.
