Double Outlet Ventricles


Double outlet ventricle is present when all of one great vessel and more than 50% of the second great vessel arise from one ventricle. The presence of pulmonary stenosis protects the lungs from overperfusion, and in its absence the lungs are flooded and there is congestive heart failure. Total correction is undertaken at any age when symptoms dictate. Surgery is performed with cardiopulmonary bypass, moderate hypothermia, aortic cross-clamping, and cardioplegia with local cardiac cooling.
