In this procedure, the provider moves the aortic root to the pulmonary position, excises the pulmonary valve, and reconstructs the ventricular channels. He also moves one or both coronary arteries to a more favorable position. The provider repairs the blood vessels to allow proper circulation of blood in a patient with a ventricular septal defect. He also repairs the pulmonary artery stenosis or narrowing. The provider also may implant one or both coronary ostia, or openings just above the aortic valve where the left and right coronary arteries begin.
