Fontan-type operation for correcting complex congenital defects in a criss-cross heart.


:Three cases of criss-cross heart with severe and complex congenital defects are reported. Precise preoperative diagnosis of the morphologic abnormalities made it possible to choose an optimal method of surgical treatment: all patients successfully underwent a Fontan-type surgical procedure.
