Abstract

Background Pulmonary artery banding (PAB) is a technique of palliative surgical therapy used by congenital heart surgeons as a staged approach to operative correction of congenital heart defects. Materials and Methods We report 5- year experiences from January 2011 to January 2016 of Imam Reza Hospital center (a tertiary referral hospital in Mashhad city, North East of Iran) that consist of 50 patients with congenital heart disease with left to right shunt that pulmonary artery banding procedure was performed for them were studied. Results Age of patients (n=50) was 1to 9 months (mean=4.6 + 1.3). In this study, the most common disease that need to PAB procedure was Ventricular septal defect (VSD) with twenty-eight patients (56). Mean of extubation time (hour) was 10.4 + 0.8 and mean of hospital stay (day) was 13.3 + 2.4 respectively. Conclusion Although the number of pulmonary artery banding palliation surgery was decreased, but in selected group of congenital heart disease, this palliation to reduce over circulation of Pulmonary system, can use successfully with acceptable results and low mortality. We suggest pulmonary artery banding palliative surgery in these selected patients.
