Two cases of intralobar sequestration of the right upper lobe, which is supplied by a major anomalous collateral artery from the descending thoracic aorta and also by the upper lobe branch of the right pulmonary artery, are presented. Both cases underwent surgical correction. The plexus of abnormal vessels in the right upper lobe of the lung communicating to the anomalous collateral artery was unexpected. The return pathway into the right pulmonary artery was most unusual. The embryologic explanation of the anomaly and the surgical implications are discussed. The return pathway of the left-to-right shunt by a branch of the pulmonary artery is most unusual and has hitherto not been reported in English literature to the best of the authors' knowledge.

    Background: The design of devices currently used for closure of persistent ductus arteriosus (PDA) with high pulmonary artery pressure is not ideal and there is a risk of embolisation into the aorta. Objective: To investigate the use of the Amplatzer muscular ventricular septal defect occluder...
