ABSTRACT
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.
