In this first Cardiothoracic DocTalk session of the Pathway to Independence for Junior Surgeons we will discuss Redo Sternotomy and Pulmonary Valve Replacement in a patient who had prior TOF repair. We plan to highlight the pre-operative strategy which will include necessary imaging and testing along with how to manage an intra-operative complication of air embolism. Viewers of this webinar will gain valuable insight into a stepwise approach to managing a very complex surgical scenario.
