Progress in infant open-heart surgery last 10 years was reviewed mainly based on the surgical experiences in Fukuoka Children's Hospital. Recent advances and present problems in patient's care, cardiopulmonary bypass methods and cardioplegia were discussed. Low surgical mortality of 4.8% in 245 infant open-heart repairs between 1988 and 1990 in Fukuoka is highly suggestive of early primary repair for most of congenital heart diseases.
