A full-term baby with double-outlet right ventricle and total anomalous pulmonary venous connection (TAPVC) complicated with left main pulmonary artery (PA) stenosis, presented with heart failure caused by increased pulmonary blood flow. Based on significant discrepancies in size and development between the left and right PAs, we performed right PA banding concomitant with TAPVC repair to promote left PA growth and restrict overall PA flow. PA-graphy performed 3 months after surgery showed marked increase in the left PA size with appropriately low pressure, which enabled us to successfully complete Glenn anastomosis. Under appropriate patient selection, unilateral PA banding for patients with unbalanced peripheral PA size could serve as an effective and less invasive strategy to simultaneously promote PA growth and control PA flow.
