Abstract

We present two patients with history of recurrent respiratory infections, fatigue and sweating. They were diagnosed with absence of connection between the main pulmonary artery (MPA) and right pulmonary artery (RPA) and bilateral ductus arteriosus, with the RPA originating from the ductus arteriosus. Treatment was approached with a hybrid strategy: percutaneous intraluminal angioplasty with a right intraductal stent and device closure of the left ductus arteriosus and followed by surgical reconstruction with interposition of a graft from RPA to MPA. Both patients had a favorable outcome.
