Successful surgical palliation of a triple-outlet right ventricle: a rare congenital cardiac malformation

Abstract

Most commonly, hearts have either a single arterial trunk or two arterial trunks; however, rare reports exist of a “tritruncal” heart, a heart with three outflow tracts. Here, we present one of the first reports of successful surgical palliation of a triple-outlet right ventricle.
