After a newborn is treated for truncus arteriosus, he can develop truncal valve stenosis and or truncal valve regurgitation. At Boston Children’s, we have performed 50 truncal valve repairs over the past five years. Of those patients undergoing a truncal valve repair instead of replacement, 94 percent showed significant decrease in the leakage of the valve, and 100 percent showed no stenosis.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
