Senning procedure

Last reviewed dd mmm yyyy. Last edited dd mmm yyyy

Mustard and Senning procedures are interatrial repairs of transposition of the great arteries.

The underlying aim is to construct a baffle from pericardium or the atrial wall which directs the returning caval blood behind the baffle to the mitral valve, and hence left ventricle and pulmonary artery; the pulmonary venous return is directed in front of the baffle to the tricuspid valve, right ventricle and aorta.

This operation resolves the cyanosis because there is now a serial circulation created, but need not be undertaken as early as the arterial switch because the left ventricle will continue to be linked to the pulmonary circulation; it is usually undertaken at about 6 months.
