Determination of the proper length of the tubular prosthesis is a major issue when performing a systemic-pulmonary artery shunt. The procedure is simplified by using a prosthesis with accordionlike properties. This was demonstrated in 7 consecutive infants with complex congenital heart defects, in whom systemic-pulmonary artery shunts were placed without early or late complications.
