Abstract

Congenital pulmonary artery anomalies are infrequent but given improved prenatal diagnosis and care, and neonatal surgical advances, over the past two decades are not uncommonly encountered by cardiothoracic imagers. An understanding of their etiology, classifications, associated anomalies, and surgical management can be helpful to avoid under or overdiagnosis. Timely diagnosis assisted by familiarity with imaging findings across modalities and recognition of surgical findings allows for medical management and surgical planning for these patients, with more patients reaching adulthood than ever before.
