Abstract

An 18-year-old girl with pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect and major aortopulmonary collateral arteries (MAPCAs) was reported. Her left- side pulmonary artery was absent, and the blood flow to the left lung was derived from two MAPCAs. One-stage correction, including the left-side thoracotomy and followed by the median sternotomy, was performed. A handmade trifurcated valved conduit was used to connect the right ventricle and the distal pulmonary arteries. The patient was doing well 3 years after the operation.
