Özet

Introduction: Ventricular septal defect (VSD) is the most common congenital heart anomaly. In surgical treatment, the transatrial approach is frequently utilized because of causing less right bundle block and ventricular scarring. However, some VSDs are obscured by the chordae tendineae or a pouch formation of the septal leaflet; therefore, alternative techniques are required. In such cases, tricuspid valve detachment (TVD) provides a complete visualization and ease to access to ventricular septal defects. In this study, we evaluated the results of the patients of whom we performed TVD.
