Abstract

The ventricular septal defect approached through the right atrium is associated with inadequate exposure and thus difficulty in its closure. The retraction, to expose the defect, leads to distortion of anatomy and a limitation of space to operate. We propose a simple procedure of retracting sutures to expose the defect without this limitation.
