Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A two-week-old asymptomatic baby was diagnosed by cross-sectional and Doppler ultrasound to have tricuspid atresia with a common arterial trunk. Successful surgical palliation was undertaken at 17 days of age, by disconnection of the pulmonary arteries from the trunk, and creation of an aortopulmonary shunt. There are no known previous reports of surgical palliation of this lesion.
