Abstract


This paper documents, for the first time, the in vivo size, geometry, and function of the different components of this important subtype of truncus arteriosus (pulmonary dominant). Previous descriptions were based on examining formalin-fixed (collapsed) specimens, or descriptions during operations. It is hoped that this information can be of value in designing operative treatment as well as interpreting future sequential imaging, with the aim of optimizing the results of comprehensive repair.
