Abstract

Incompetence of the left atrioventricular valve remains the final Achilles' heel of repair of atrioventricular septal defects (AVSDs), despite low operative mortality in the modern era. We have analysed the morphological basis for valvar incompetence in our own series of repairs, and in doing so, reviewed the morphology of the annulus in AVSDs, before and after surgical repair.
