The findings in absence of the right pulmonary artery have been reviewed with presentation of two cases. The chest roentgenogram showed decreased volume of the right lung and shift of the mediastinum to the right. 133Radioactive Xenon ventilation-perfusion studies were shown to be useful by demonstrating ventilation but no perfusion in the right lung. Angiography is still essential to show absence of the right pulmonary artery. Surgery is technically possible.

    Pulmonary arteriovenous malformation (PAVM) is common after cavopulmonary anastomosis. PAVMs appear on chest X-ray film as diffuse opacity in one or both lungs. Angiographically, it appears as spidery diffuse vascularity with near simultaneous opacfication of pulmonary arteries and veins.

    Proximal interruption of the unilateral pulmonary artery is a rare congenital anomaly, which is often associated with other cardiovascular abnormalities. It is usually diagnosed in children but rarely discovered in adulthood as an isolated phenomenon, occurring more frequently on the right side...
