Abstract

Background: Paediatric hybrid cardiovascular procedures are becoming increasingly popular due to the wide spectrum of cardiovascular abnormalities and a large population of patients who could benefit from hybrid therapy. Contemporary hybrid procedures are introduced in the settings where routine cardiac surgery or cardiac interventions would not allow satisfactory results. Combining cardiac surgery and interventional cardiology techniques appears more beneficial and less invasive forthe patient.

Aim: To present results of hybrid procedures performed in the treatment of selected congenital heart disease in our centrein 2008–2013.

Methods: We retrospectively analysed consecutive 80 patients referred for hybrid procedures.

Results: Overall, 73 patients survived, with 4 early and 3 late deaths.

Conclusions: Hybrid procedures in children with congenital heart disease combine the experience of cardiac surgery and interventional cardiology. Hybrid treatment is an alternative option for selected borderline patients. Initial results of hybrid treatment encourage further development of these methods and strategies to provide optimal benefits for the patients.
