Double Outlet Right Ventricle

Incomplete transposition of the great vessels in which both the AORTA and the PULMONARY ARTERY arise from the RIGHT VENTRICLE. The only outlet of the LEFT VENTRICLE is a large ventricular septal defect (VENTRICULAR SEPTAL DEFECTS or VSD). The various subtypes are classified by the location of the septal defect, such as subaortic, subpulmonary, or noncommitted.
Also Known As:
Double Outlet Right Ventricle, Noncommitted VSD; Double Outlet Right Ventricle, Subaortic VSD; Double Outlet Right Ventricle, Subpulmonary VSD; Anomaly, Taussig-Bing; Taussig Bing Anomaly; Taussig-Bing Anomaly

04/01/2011 - "All patients had normal ventricular function at latest echocardiography and were in NYHA class 1. The arterial switch operation in Transposition of Great Arteries or Double Outlet Right Ventricle patients with intramural coronary can be performed with low mortality; however, there is a high incidence of intraoperative or postoperative coronary problems, which can be managed with conversion to the individual coronary button technique and a bypass procedure using a left subclavian free graft. "
07/01/2005 - "We report a case of congenital ascending aortic aneurysm associated with double-outlet right ventricle that has been successfully repaired by graft replacement and extracardiac total cavo-pulmonary connection."
09/01/1975 - "Subsequently a transverse right ventriculotomy, either alone or combined with a right ventricular outflow and/or pulmonary artery patch enlargement was performed in 16 patients, and a double outlet right ventricle was created through insertion of a Dacron tube graft in two patients. "
07/01/1992 - "The diagnosis was transposition of the great arteries with ventricular septal defect and left ventricular outflow tract obstruction in 51, truncus arteriosus in 36, pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect in 25, tetralogy of Fallot in 19, double-outlet right ventricle in 10, pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum in 6 and atrioventricular canal with pulmonary atresia in 1. A Dacron porcine-valved conduit was used in 37, a homograft conduit in 106 and a nonvalved conduit in 5. There were 13 early deaths overall (8.8%); 8 (22%) of the early deaths occurred in the 37 patients who received a Dacron graft, 4 (3.8%) occurred in the 106 patients who received a homograft and 1 occurred in a patient with a nonvalved Gore-Tex conduit.
