Abstract  We performed anterior translocation of the pulmonary artery (Le-Compte's maneuver) in a patient with an atrial septal defect with long standing complete collapse of the left lung due to extrinsic compression of the left bronchus by a dilated pulmonary artery. Following the closure of the septal defect and anterior translocation of the pulmonary artery, there was immediate relief of airway obstruction followed by reexpansion of the collapsed lung.
