PMID:  21095366     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Idiopathic pulmonary artery aneurysms are rare and need a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosis and treatment. Surgery is the treatment of choice, especially when the aneurysms are large and when they are associated with pulmonary regurgitation. This report highlights a case in which successful surgical repair preserved the native pulmonary valve after pulmonary artery reconstruction.
