We treated a neonate with pulmonary atresia and a ventricular septal defect complicated by straddling of the atrioventricular valves by constructing a central aorto-pulmonary shunt. The postoperative course was complicated by obstruction of the shunt, which was treated by implantation of a coronary stent. Six months after the stenting, a Glenn anastomosis was created and the stented shunt removed. Analysis showed that the shunt was completely covered by a vascularized neointima. The stent had not produced injury to the shunt, with struts of the stent covered nicely by neoendothelium, with sparse inflammation surrounding the artificial implants.
