Abstract

Intracardiac repair of a variety of cardiac anomalies was performed in 104 infants aged 10 days to 6 mo, presenting with severe hypoxia and/or intractable heart failure. Thirty-eight patients (33 less than three mo of age) did not survive the operation or died during the first postoperative month. Above 6 mo of age, correction of heart defects is often carried out on an elective basis, and results are more favorable. A more convenient choice between corrective and palliative procedures is suggested to achieve better results in the difficult group of patients who require surgery within the first 6 mo of life.
