Abstract

80% of patients with Truncus arteriosus died in the first year of life by cardiac insufficiency from left to right shunt, high level of pulmonary vascular disease, and truncal valve insufficiency. The palliative procedure, banding of the pulmonary arteries, is technically difficult, with high hospital mortality (50%) and increases the risk of the second stage repair (70%). Eight infants (1 to 9 mth) were corrected, with 3 operative deaths and two late deaths. Three patients are doing well 12, 12 and 36 months post-operatively.
