The Outcome of Surgical Pulmonary Artery Banding in Patient with Complex Cyanotic Heart Disease Truncus Arteriosus Type I with Malalignment Ventricular Septal Defect: A Case Report

Dr. Komang Agus Triyana

Abstract: Truncus arteriosus is a cardiac malformation condition characterized by the presence of an arterial truncus that exits the heart through a single semilunar valve and goes directly to the coronary, systemic and pulmonary arteries. This condition is accompanied by the presence of a perimembranous infundibular Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD) under the truncus. The trunk valves may be bicuspid, tricuspid, or quadricuspid, and are often incompetent (Allen, 2001). This anomaly is rare, accounting for 2% of all congenital heart disease. This condition appears to result in congestive heart failure during infancy, up to the first few months of life. If good management is not carried out, about 70% of patients die within the first 3 months of life (Allen, 2001).
