Program at a Glance

The Asian Pacific Target Symposium will bring topics in borderline ventricles, complex biventricular repair and single ventricle repair to discuss the latest information regarding mainly surgical management.

Program at a Glance (Tentative)

Program at a Glance

Session Topics

1. Dealing with the borderline Left Ventricle

– What are the requirements for biventricular circulation, and how to get there? –

  1. Circulation and morphology (fetal, neonate, and infant)
  2. Clinical decision-making process for biventricular circulation
  3. Surgery for the mitral valve
  4. Surgery for the aortic valve
  5. Role of the pulmonary valve for systemic circulation
  6. Late condition after BVR and UVR

2. Dealing with the borderline Right Ventricle

– Fontan vs One-and-a-Half Ventricle Repair vs Biventricular Repair: what are the criteria and how to get there -

  1. Circulation and morphology (fetal, neonate, and infant)
  2. Decision-making process for BVR, 1+1/2, UVR
  3. Decision-making process in theatre: PAIVS
  4. Decision-making process in theatre: Ebstein’s anomaly
  5. Decision-making process in theatre: AVSD
  6. Late condition after BVR, one-and-a-half ventricle repair, and UVR

3. Dealing with congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries

– Efforts to minimize late development of systemic ventricular dysfunction –

  1. Circulation and morphology
  2. Late development of ventricular dysfunction
  3. Tricuspid valve in physiological repair
  4. Senning operation in anatomical repair
  5. Hemi-Mustard/Truncal switch operation in one-and-a-half ventricle repair
  6. Electrical issue (Arrhythmia and dual-chamber biventricular pacing)

4. Optimizing results in staged surgical management of functionally univentricular hearts

– Preparation rather than Selection for Fontan –

  1. Potential importance of systemic-to-pulmonary collaterals
  2. Pathophysiology of pulmonary arterio-venous fistura
  3. Arrhythmias in UVR.
  4. Optimal TCPC
    (1) Antegrade pulmonary flow be maintained or eliminated,
    (2) Lateral tunnel vs Extra cardiac conduit
    (3) Fenestration – yes or no
    (4) Timing of completion Fontan,
  5. Surgical preparation for Fontan1.
  6. Surgical preparation for Fontan2.
    (1) Pulmonary venous reconstruction,
    (2) Pulmonary artery reconstruction,
    (3) Atrioventricular valve reconstruction,
    (4) Outflow tract reconstruction.
  7. VAD/HTx for univentricular heart

5. Complex biventricular repair

– Challenges and technical solutions -

  1. Valve-Sparing Aortic Root Reconstruction in small children
  2. Valve-Sparing Aortic Root Reconstruction in adolescence
  3. Straddling atrioventricular valves,
  4. DORV with non-committed VSD,
  5. Non-repairable mitral valve in infancy,
  6. Ventricular septation (Asplenia)
