Cardiac anomalies are frequently encountered in Robin Sequence (RS) neonates with upper airway obstruction. The RS patients were dyspnea, fed difficulties, with cardiac abnormalities caused by cardiac dysfunction, aggravating hypoxia, poor nutrition, increased surgical risk. Mortality rate of RS patients with cardiac anomalies was high. Neonatal distraction (Mandibular Distraction Osteogenesis, MDO) in severe micrognathia patients have been shown to be effective method in treating upper airway obstruction. In our hospital, MDO and cardiac surgery were done at the same time, upper airway obstruction and cardiac structural abnormalities due to hypoxia, can simultaneously treated, no one died, RS patients gain the most weight and benefits. It's a safe and effective way to do both surgeries at the same time for the RS patient with cardiac anomalies.
