Left pulmonary artery (PA) originating from patent ductus arteriosus is an exceptionally rare variant of tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve. We described an alternative technique for the repair of discontinuous left PA with the use of the redundant pulmonary artery tissue as material for the conduit in a 3-year-old boy.

    A discontinuous pulmonary artery is one that is disconnected from the main pulmonary trunk and arises from a patent ductus arteriosus. This anomaly is not often found in conjunction with tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) and pulmonary stenosis. We treated an infant who had such an anomaly with impending...

    Prenatal diagnosis at very early gestational age may disclose fetal anomalies, although this diagnosis is limited by lack of details on ultrasound (US) examination; hence, the importance of postmortem (PM) examination. We present a case of a 13-week-old fetus terminated as a result of...

    Tetralogy of Fallot without pulmonary valve syndrome is almost always associated with an absent ductus arteriosus. Patients with right aortic arch and retroesophageal left subclavian artery have a vascular ring if the left ductus arteriosus or its remnant and the Kommerell diverticulum are...

    Abstract: We developed a technique of translocation of the pulmonary artery anterior to the ascending aorta without transection of the aorta in the repair of tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary va lve. Our technique includes detachment of the main pulmonary artery (MPA) from the pulmonary...

    A very rare combination including tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), absent pulmonary valve, and isolated left pulmonary artery is described. A 4-month-old girl presented with mild cyanosis and severe dyspnea. Echocardiography established the diagnosis of TOF and absent pulmonary valve with severe...

    Unilateral absence of a pulmonary artery (UAPA) is a rare anomaly. Although UAPA has been reported previously, its age-related pathogenesis and symptoms remain unclear. This retrospective cohort study included cases of UAPA reported in Japan at medical meetings or in the literature from 1990...

    An aortopulmonary window (APW) is a communication between the ascending aorta and the pulmonary trunk in the presence of two separate semilunar valves. In order to increase our understanding about the surgical management of this rare lesion and its long-term results, we describe our experience...
