Abstract

A newborn baby with type II truncus arteriosus and type B interrupted aortic arch was successfully treated by creating a pulmonary tract using autologous flap made from truncal wall without excision of the pulmonary artery and by reconstructing the aortic arch with direct anastomosis. This method provided excellent hemodynamics with wide reconstruction of the pulmonary tract without conduit.
