Bronchial compression due to a dilated pulmonary artery is a troublesome problem in the surgical management of infants or children with congenital heart disease. We experienced an infantile case of ventricular septal defect and prolonged respiratory insufficiency caused by right bronchial compression and left pulmonary hypoplasia. Anterior translocation of the dilated right pulmonary artery and intracardiac repair succeeded in relieving the bronchial compression and improving left pulmonary function. We advocate that this procedure is useful for bronchial compression with congenital heart disease and maldevelopment of the lung.
