Abstract  The left coronary artery arising from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare congenital anomaly. It causes high mortality if untreated in childhood. Only 10% to 15% of patients reach adulthood. We report a successful repair of ALCAPA in an adult with a rolled-conduit-extended-reimplantation technique. The procedure is easily applicable and has technical advantages for creating a longer and wider conduit and may decrease bleeding. (J Card Surg ****;**:1-4).
