Abstract Patent ductus arteriosus is one of the most common congenital cardiac pathologies, besides patency of ductus may be somewhat vital for various congenital cardiac defects, otherwise death is inevitable. Anatomically, ductus is single and located between the descending aorta and the pulmonary artery. The review of the literature reveals presence of more than one ductus arteriosi in sporadic cases, most commonly associated with aortic arch anomalies. In this report, we present a nine-month-old baby with the diagnosis of ventricular septal defect (VSD), pulmonary atresia (PA), nonconfluent pulmonary arteries, and bilateral patent ductus arteriosi. He underwent a successful pulmonary reconstruction and central-shunt operation with modified aortopulmonary window technique without cardiopulmonary bypass. This is a very rare case with double ductus arteriosi associated with VSD, PA, and nonconfluent pulmonary arteries. © 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
