Tracheomalacia complicates the clinical course of congenital heart disease among infants; however, the surgical treatment of tracheomalacia in conjunction with open heart operations is rarely reported. We report an infant with ventricular septal defect and severe tracheomalacia. The patient was treated with simultaneous intracardiac repair, and the tracheomalacia was relieved by aortopexy for anterior wall collapse and a new technique to fix the posterior wall bulging.
