This week we delve into the world of cardiovascular surgery when we review a recent paper from the team at Texas Children's Hospital about the BTT shunt. How commonly did shunts have serious complications? Does the location on the aorta matter in regards to shunt complications? What size shunt is associated with the least morbidity or mortality? Why might shunt placement via a thoracotomy be superior to sternotomy. These are amongst the many questions reviewed with the first author of this work, second year cardiology fellow at Primary Children's Hospital, Dr. Andrew Headrick.
