Aortic atresia with normal left ventricle: one-stage repair in early infancy.

Abstract

Successful one-stage repair of aortic atresia with a left ventricle was performed in a 6-week-old infant using a new technique. After patch enhancement of the hypoplastic aortic arch, the transected proximal pulmonary artery was directly anastomosed to the aortic arch. An intraventricular baffle established continuity between the left ventricle and neoaortic valve, and a homograft conduit was inserted between the right ventricle and pulmonary artery bifurcation.
