MARCANO SANZ, Luis; CONSUEGRA CHUAIREY, María Teresa; FRIAS GRISHKO, Fernando  and  SELMAN-HOUSSEIN SOSA, Eugenio. One a half ventricular surgery type in the double outlet of left ventricle. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2012, vol.84, n.1, pp.97-102. ISSN 0034-7531.

The double outlet of the left ventricle is uncommon, where the aorta and the pulmonary artery emerge total or predominantly from the left ventricle. When they are accompanied of an interventricular communication and of pulmonary stenosis, the correction is usually carried out with the insertion of a conduct between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery. The objective of present paper is to present a case treated with one half ventricular surgery type and ventricular medium, since until is known, this technique has not used in this disease to avoid the use of prosthetic conducts. Authors reports the case of a girl aged 3 undergoes the closure of the interventricular communication, switching off the pulmonary artery of the left ventricle and anastomosing it to the new outlet tract of right ventricle, carrying out a partial cavopulmonary bypass. After 6 years of follow-up she has a good clinical and echocardiographic evolution as well as a appropriate functional ability.
