Abstract

A modified Mayo technique was successfully employed to correct a case of complete atrioventricular (a-v) canal associated with tetralogy of Fallot. The technique included: 1) separated patch closure of the atrial and ventricular septal defects, 2) attachment of the a-v valves between the two prosthetic septa without suturing the clefts, 3) mitral valve commissuroplasty, 4) relief of the right ventricular outflow obstruction. Postoperative catheterisation revealed normal haemodynamic findings. The child is asymptomatic two years after the operation.
