Abstract

Abstract The authors describe the cross-sectional echocardiographic and angiographic features besides the postmortem findings of a newborn with aortic atresia associated with the aortopulmonary window and an interrupted aortic arch, as the third known similar case reported in the literature. Anatomical and clinical similarities with common arterial trunk are emphasized and a more correct management is established to avoid risks, in which Norwood-type techniques would be preferable.
