Abstract

This chapter covers palliative operations, including the pulmonary artery band, aortopulmonary shunts (such as the classic and modified Blalock-Taussig shunts, Waterston/Cooley shunt, and Potts shunt), and other procedures. Some procedures that are considered obsolete are also included, so that surgeons whose patients have had these procedures performed in the past can become made aware of them.
