ABSTRACT

A new corrective surgery for truncus arteriosus (TA) without the use of extracardiac conduit was employed in 7 patients with truncus (TA) type I in 6 cases and type II in 1 case, aged from two to nine months. The common TA was septated with a patch into aortic and pulmonary segments and the ventricular septal defect was closed through ventriculotomy; a direct anastomosis between the pulmonary arteries and the right ventricle was performed, the anterior wall of this, being contructed with a patch with a monocusp valve. There was one imediate postoperative death. In the surviving six patients the RV/LV postoperative peak systolic was less than 0.51 in five and 0.60 in one with residual VSD; all are in functional class I, in postoperative period between one and fourteen months. Based in these results we propose this technique for patients with type I or II, in the first year of life.

RESUMO

Uma nova técnica para correção cirúrgica do truncus arteriosus (TA) sem o uso de conduto extracardíaco foi realizada em 7 pacientes, senão 6 do tipo I, e do tipo II em 1 paciente; a idade variou de 2 a 9 meses. O tronco comum foi septado com retalho, dividindo-o em uma posição aórtica e outra pulmonar; a comunicação interventricular (CIV) foi fechada através de ventriculotomia; anastomose direta entre as artérias pulmonares e o ventrículo direito foi realizada, sendo a parede anterior construída com retalho de pericárdio bovino com válvula monocúspide. Houve apenas 1 óbito no pós-operatório. Nos 6 pacientes restantes, a relação entre as pressões sistólicas ventrículo direito/ventrículo esquerdo (VD/VE) foi menor que 0,51 em 5 pacientes; em 1 paciente, essa relação foi de 0,60, associada a CIV residual. Todos os pacientes encontram-se em classe funcional I (NYHA), em um período de 1 a 14 meses de pós-operatório. Baseados nestes resultados, propomos esta técnica para pacientes com TA tipo I ou II, no primeiro ano de vida.
