Cardiothoracic surgery is a high risk, high reward specialty demanding exceptional performance for desired outcomes. Whereas the demand for technical excellence, critical thinking skills, judgment, and overall experience is clear, the pathway to optimize performance improvement after training is completed is less clear. "Role modeling," "mentorship," "coaching," and "apprenticeship" are all buzz words that have flooded the proverbial air of our specialty in recent years. The goal of this article...

This is a case of an infant with unilateral discontinuous right pulmonary artery. Cardiac catheterisation with pulmonary wedge injection diagnosed the anomaly and aided in surgical planning. The patient underwent semi-autologous surgical repair utilising an autologous main pulmonary artery flap. One month following discharge, he underwent successful balloon dilation of the residual stenosis and was discharged the same day.

Substantial improvements in techniques of tracheal surgery for children have occurred in the past 20 years. Precise preoperative imaging with computed tomography clearly defines the anatomy for surgical planning and is assisted by on-the-table needle localization. The use of cardiopulmonary bypass greatly facilitates creation of an airtight, widely patent trachea. The use of Ciprodex as a postoperative nebulizer has significantly decreased granulation tissue along the suture line. Most important...

The World Society for Pediatric and Congenital Heart Surgery (WSPCHS) has established the Global Council on Education for Congenital Heart Surgery as a nonprofit organization with the goal of assessing current training and certification and ultimately establishing standardized criteria for the training, evaluation, and certification o...
