We describe the case of 35-year old woman who had undergone radical surgery to correct Tetralogy of Fallot malformation at the age of nine admitted to our hospital because of palpitation and exertional dyspnea. Angiography revealed 90% re-stenosis of the right pulmonary artery and grade IV tricuspid regurgitation. Right lung was perfused only 16.7% as shown by pulmonary perfusion scintigraphy. Interposition between the pulmonary trunk and right pulmonary artery using an EPTFE graft and tricuspid annuloplasty using a Duran ring was performed. Blood flow to the right lung improved markedly from 16.7% to 37.0% and her symptom disappeared completely.
