Abstract

Pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum and right ventricle-dependent coronary circulation confers a high risk for myocardial infarction and complications of ischaemia, including left ventricle aneurysms. We describe an infant with pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum and right ventricle-dependent coronary circulation and a left ventricle apical aneurysm who successfully underwent the Dor procedure and a subsequent Fontan operation. Surgery for postinfarction left ventricle aneurysm can be considered in infants.
