Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A 37-year-old man with repaired transposition of the great arteries had extensive infective endocarditis, and a multidisciplinary therapeutic strategy was planned based on surgical indications, invasiveness, and future prospects. After adequate antibiotic treatment, simultaneous replacement of quadruple valve and aortic root using mechanical valves was performed to intervene in the healed valvular disease and the concurrent anatomic and functional abnormalities. We believe that this extensive one-stage surgery contributed to maximizing the quality of life and minimizing the number of future reoperations. Our approach can provide suggestions for the management of adult patients with repaired congenital heart disease.
