Abstract

Persistent truncus arteriosus is a rare congenital condition with which survival into adulthood is dismal without surgery. This is the oldest patient reported to our knowledge demonstrating the feasibility of assessing operability in persistent truncus arteriosus with unilateral pulmonary stenosis, and performing full corrective surgery in adulthood. We report a Chinese male with successful correction of Type I persistent truncus arteriosus at 33 years of age. He had unilateral pulmonary hypertension from migration of pulmonary artery band from the main to the right pulmonary artery, severe truncal valve regurgitation from previous infective endocarditis, and progressive congestive heart failure. Improvement of lung perfusion was demonstrated 21 months post operation. This case demonstrated that in patients with persistent truncus arteriosus and two pulmonary arteries, pulmonary vascular disease or underdevelopment of one lung does not preclude a full corrective surgery so long as the other vascular bed is normal. It is important to emphasize the importance of assessing patient's operability in totality.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 26 April 2022.
All research outputs
#5,933,609
of 21,287,234 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#95
of 1,115 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#85,376
of 280,425 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#3
of 9 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,287,234 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 70th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,115 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.2. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 91% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 280,425 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 68% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 9 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 6 of them.
