Abstract Share this page

Abstract We report an exceptional case of pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum in which non-confluent pulmonary arteries were supplied by bilateral arterial ducts, the existence of which had been diagnosed in life. One should be aware of this arterial pattern, even when the ventricular septum is intact in the setting of pulmonary atresia, because it requires a different surgical approach than when atresia is associated with a ventricular septal defect, namely construction of bilateral shunts for palliation followed by reconstitution of the pulmonary arterial confluence for definitive repair.
