International Symposium on the Hybrid Approach to Congenital Heart Disease (ISHAC) :: Nationwide Children's Hospital


We did a perventricular VSD closure very smoothly. 45 day old infant stuck in the ventilator with HF with a 9 mm mid muscular VSD and a CoA. I did the VSD with Simone guiding me with superb pictures on TEE and the surgeon did the CoA. The kid has just been extubated! Very impressive. Again: this wouldn't have been possible if you guys hadn't given us so much support!
