Bilateral pulmonary artery banding for resuscitation in hypoplastic left heart syndrome

Ann Thorac Surg. 2003 Jan;75(1):277-9. doi: 10.1016/s0003-4975(02)04302-3.


We report a case of a hypoplastic left heart syndrome with a nearly intact atrial septum and an obstructed anomalous pulmonary to systemic venous connection. Surgical atrial septectomy followed by bilateral pulmonary artery banding provided an optimal condition for the Norwood operation.
