Abstract

Surgical repair of pulmonary artery sling without concomitant correction of associated tracheal abnormalities has yielded poor results in the past. We combined vascular sling repair done during cardiopulmonary bypass through a median sternotomy incision with tracheopexy for severe associated tracheomalacia in 2 infants. Neither experienced substantial postoperative respiratory difficulties and both had patent vascular anastomoses at 1 year after repair, thus supporting this approach when this combination of lesions is present.
