Taussig-Bing Malformation, Coarctation of the Aorta, and Reversed Patent Ductus Arteriosus
Operative Correction in an Infant
Operative correction of a Taussig-Bing malformation was successfully accomplished in a 23-mo-old boy, weighing 6.8 kg. Associated coarctation of the aorta and reversed patent ductus arteriosus were corrected in a preliminary operation. The patient's management was complicated by severe preoperative thrombocytopenia which responded to multiple phlebotomies. Surgical repair of the Taussig-Bing malformation consisted in patching the ventricular septal defect to create physiologically complete transposition of great vessels. Then a Mustard procedure was done.
