Comment from Dr. Hafil B. Abdulgani (Indonesia), section editor of Congenital Heart Surgery Journal Watch: This is a case report of an eight-day-old neonate was diagnosed with dextro-transposition of the great arteries, atrial septal defect, patent ductus arteriosus, and a single sinus origin of the coronary arteries. The single coronary artery originated from the left sinus (sinus 2), had a proximal left circumflex arterial branch, and passed anteriorly to the right side of the aorta, further branching into the right coronary and left anterior descending arteries. The authors successfully performed an arterial switch operation and coronary transfer by tube graft reconstruction with autologous aortic tissue to treat the dextro-transposition of the great arteries and atrial septal defect with a single-sinus origin of the coronary arteries. This is a very good technique.

Comment from Dr. Hafil B. Abdulgani (Indonesia), section editor of Congenital Heart Surgery Journal Watch: Congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries (CCTGA) is a complex congenital heart defect characterized by atrioventricular and ventriculoarterial discordance. The morphological left ventricular (mLV) and the morphological right ventricular (mRV) support the pulmonary and systemic circulations, respectively. Over time, progressive deterioration of the mLV and/or the systemic atrioventricular valve would, if untreated, lead to significant morbidity and mortality. The optimal management approach for these patients remains controversial. Conventional repair, which leaves the mRV supplying the systemic circulation, is still associated with progressive mRV dysfunction and tricuspid regurgitation. Therefore, anatomical correction might be superior. Nevertheless, an mLV should have adequate pressure, volume load and ventricular mass to sustain a systemic circulation. So, for certain patients with a deconditioned mLV anomaly, the two-stage double switch (DS) operation, mLV retraining followed by the atrial–arterial switch may be an appealing alternative. In the current study, the authors evaluate the clinical outcomes of this two-stage operation on these patients. The author observed that two-stage DS operation is a complex procedure with low mortality rate. Suitable banding of the pulmonary artery and effective evaluation of the efficacy of LV retraining are of great importance. The age of banding might be the main determinant of the efficacy of the mLV retraining and the later function of the myocardium. Development of new aortic valve (neo-AR) regurgitation and aortic root dilatation can be more frequently seen in patients after two-stage DS procedure.

Comment from Dr. Hafil B. Abdulgani (Indonesia), section editor of Congenital Heart Surgery Journal Watch: The most commonly reported endpoints of surgical performance in congenital cardiac operations are determined by multiple factors. An individual practitioner’s surgical performance includes technical and other nontechnical skills such as cognitive flexibility, decision making, anticipation, situational awareness, communication, team work, and leadership. Risk-adjusted mortality evaluations allow for a better understanding than do general mortality rates. They are a measure of institutional performance and are not intended to evaluate an individual surgeon’s competency in a specific procedure or within a patient group. Outcomes are dependent on multiple factors—including the patient’s underlying pathologic process, case complexity, age, physiologic status, and health care delivery systems. Optimal technical performance during surgical procedures correlates with the best outcomes across the entire spectrum and attenuates the effects of poor preoperative physiologic condition and high complexity. At this Argentinean tertiary center, a retrospective study of patients, less than 1-year of age, with isolated ventricular septal defect or associated with atrial septal defect, foramen ovale and/or ductus arteriosus were analyzed. The postoperative mortality was 3% due to pulmonary hypertension and infectious complications associated with poor preoperative condition. The surgical wound infection was the most frequent cause of reoperation, as well as infections accounted for more than 50% of complications. Patient less than 6 months of age, body weight less than 3 kg, malnutrition and previous respiratory infection significantly associated with morbidity, but not with mortality. The presence of Down syndrome did not represent a risk factor for either morbidity or mortality.
