The following video depicts a five-year-old with transposition of the great arteries, who had bicuspid aortic and pulmonary valves. Patient was not a candidate for a Ross procedure, requiring an aortic valve replacement. This video demonstrates a rare aortic valve replacement after an arterial switch operation.

This is a video showcasing a jump-graft repair for Coarctation of the aorta.
Coarctation of the aorta is one of the most well-known and documented congenital heart defects. Innovations in the field have led to a several options for surgical repair. However, patients with coarctation of the aorta remain at high risk for a number of morbidities including recoarctation aortic aneurysms and dilations, and sudden death. Our video showcases a jump graft repair, which is an underutilized approach for coarctation repair. Our goal is to educate others in the field on the proper technique and utility of this operation.
Insertion of a chest tube is a common procedure. Indications count pneumo- and hemothorax among others; and in acute situations, a chest tube can be lifesaving. This video illustrates the surgical insertion of a chest tube in a patient suffering from hydro-pneumothorax. The video shows the identification of the anatomical structures that create the safe triangle, and a safe insertion of a chest tube into the pleural cavity.
Chest tube insertion is a basic surgical procedure, often conducted by residential surgeons. It is important to know the guidelines for inserting a chest tube, in order to reduce the risk of damaging organs or neurovascular structures.
Replacement of a stenotic/irregular right ventricle to pulmonary artery Gore-Tex trileaflet graft with a novel KONECT RESILIA Aortic Valved Conduit. This is the only tissue valved conduit currently in use. This patient has d-transposition of the great arteries along with ASD, VSD, pulmonary stenosis, bovine left arch and aberrant right subclavian arteries.
His previous operations include MBTS 4mm Gore-Tex graft, urgent shunt revision secondary to thrombosis and subsequent conversion to a 4mm central shunt, right atrial thrombectomy secondary to indwelling right atrial catheter, takedown of central shunt, primary pledgeted closure of pulmonary valve, Gore-Tex patch closure of ASD/VSD, Rastelli procedure with 24mm Gore-Tex trileaflet with bulging sinuses graft.
