Severe obstructive lesion of the trachea combined with complex congenital cardiac anomaly has generally been regarded as a fatal disease. Herein we report the successful concomitant repair of severe tracheal stenosis and complex cardiac anomaly with the use of cardiopulmonary bypass in two cases. The first patient was a 5-year-old boy with tetralogy of Fallot associated with a localized intrathoracic tracheal stenosis caused by complete cartilaginous rings. Tracheal resection and end-to-end anastomosis combined with total correction of tetralogy of Fallot was performed with the aid of cardiopulmonary bypass. The second patient was a 5-month-old girl with a pulmonary artery sling, scimitar syndrome, and extensive tracheal stenosis. The patient underwent definitive correction of cardiac lesions and complete tracheal reconstruction with a cartilaginous graft with the aid of cardiopulmonary bypass. Utmost care was paid to avoid contamination during the operation. Both of the patients are doing well at present without any signs of complication, 2 years 5 months and 1 year 10 months after the operation, respectively. We advocate concomitant repair of both lesions, with cardiopulmonary bypass, in the surgical managements of infants and small children who have a difficult and otherwise fatal combination of complex congenital cardiac anomaly and severe intrathoracic tracheal stenosis.
