Criss-cross heart with supero-inferior ventricles: successful surgical correction of associated defects

  • Sunil K. Kaushal (a1), Savitri Shrivastava (a1) and Krishna S. Iyer (a1)

Summary

We present an unusual case of criss-cross heart with supero-inferior ventricles, double outlet of the right ventricle, restrictive ventricular septal defect, severe infundibular stenosis and “absent” pulmonary valve who underwent successful surgical repair. Complete preoperative diagnosis was established with cross-sectional echocardiography combined with colour Doppler and angiocardiography, which facilitated successful surgical correction.
