Abstract

A female born with aortic atresia, large ventricular septal defect, normal mitral valve, and left ventricle is well at 21 years of age following biventricular repair. She had palliative surgery at 15 days and closure of ventricular septal defect with placement of a valved conduit from the left ventricular apex to descending aorta at 15 months. Conduit was replaced at 34 months and at 10 and 21.5 years of age.
