Recognizing common post-repair complications

An atrioventricular septal defect (AVSD) can be successfully repaired by a skilled surgeon–but what happens when things go wrong afterwards? In this video from our Echo Masterclass: Congenital Heart Disease, we take you through the reasoning behind the surgical strategies used to repair an AVSD and show you what to look for on a post-operative echo if you suspect a complication.

Flustered at the thought of performing an adult congenital echo? Don’t be. In our Echo Masterclass: Congenital Heart Disease course, you’ll learn about the lesions associated with common types of defects as well as common surgical repair complications. Explore the hemodynamics of intracardiac defects, master key assessment strategies such as the sequential segmental approach, and know what to leave out of the echo report.
