Abstract

Isolated ventricular discordance is a very rare malformation, most often lethal in the first months of life. A patient with this lesion survived to age 9 years in spite of the coexistence of a complete form of atrioventricular (A-V) canal. Surgical repair with a Mustard procedure was associated with correction of the endocardial cushion defect. Situs inversus itself caused no problem. Although permanent complete A-V block occurred, the result has been satisfactory so far. This case is thought to be the first successful correction of this malformation.
