The provider closes several ventricular septal defects with sutures or patch grafts to prevent the mixing of oxygenated and deoxygenated blood in the ventricles. He then performs a valvotomy, where he incises or resects the leaflets of the pulmonary valve. Alternatively, he removes muscle tissue at the ventricular outflow tract in an infundibular resection. This relieves blockage of blood flow through the outflow tract.
