Accesses have been proposed to deliver mitral valve prosthesis including transapical, transseptal, and transatrial
The lion's share of ventricular septal deformities (VSD) can be effectively managed utilizing a transatrial approach working over the tricuspid valve3.
An improved transatrial approach to the closure of ventricular septal defects.
The principal aim of our study was to evaluate the transatrial and transventricular approaches for the primary repair of TOF by securing pulmonary valve in young children and evaluating their short term outcomes in a tertiary care cardiac health facility.
Complete repair was done with the technique of transatrial, transventricular approach VSD closure in 12 (80%) of cases while in 3 (20%) cases transventricular approach was done.
NCSI chose to initially deliver the valve by a transatrial
approach, thus minimizing the complications experienced by heart valves presently delivered transapically through a heart tip that is severely damaged by the disease and that must maintain pumping for a lifetime after recovery from the apical puncture.
However one published case report described this simple method of left atrial pressure monitoring by means of a single lumen long length central venous catheter being placed into the left atrium during transatrial surgical procedures.
Transatrial access for left atrial pressure monitoring in cardiac surgery patients.
Two patients with ToF had transatrial
surgery whereas transventricular surgery was preferred in 18 patients.
Persistent primary coronary dilation induced by transatrial
delivery of nitroglycerin into the pericardial space: a novel approach for local cardiac drug delivery.
Finally, the approach has also changed from a transventricular procedure7 to a transatrial
Comparison between transventricular and transatrial
