    Hao Hong1, Nianguo Dong1,*, Mingxing Xie2, Lin Li2, Si Chen1, Wengang Sun3, Xiaoqing Hu2

    Congenital Heart Disease, Vol.16, No.5, pp. 513-518, 2021, DOI:10.32604/CHD.2021.015749

    Abstract Pentalogy of Cantrell is a rare congenital abnormality. Even with high-quality medical care and staged corrective surgeries in professional hospitals, the mortality rate is still very high and long-term prognosis is poor. Survival is largely determined by the complexity and severity of cardiac abnormalities, the efficiency of abdominal wall closure and postoperative complications. A 24-year-old male patient with complete pentalogy of Cantrell was diagnosed. One-stage surgical repair of all abnormalities were completed. The patient recovered well and had been follow-up for 7 years. He has a good cosmetic outcome, with no signs of cardiac dysfunction. No complications were noted. More >
