Aortic translocation with autologous tissue

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Aortic translocation, although technically demanding, could be an excellent surgical option for d-transposition of the great vessels and left ventricular outflow tract obstruction. We report a modification of the aortic translocation technique that uses autologous tissue. The aortic root is mobilized from the right ventricle with an extension of infundibular free-wall muscle for use in closure of the ventricular septal defect, which is similar to the technique for harvesting pulmonary autograft in the Ross-Konno procedure. Our modification may offer an even better surgical outcome for aortic translocation.
