- 182 Downloads
This report describes a case of double-outlet right ventricle with intact ventricular septum diagnosed in a newborn male. The initial diagnosis was made by echocardiography. The baby underwent a hybrid procedure including pulmonary artery banding and stenting of the patent ductus arteriosus. He subsequently underwent stenting of the atrial communication. The patient was discharged at 55 days of life with the intent to perform palliative repair at a later date.
