Abstract

The combination of interrupted aortic arch and aortopulmonary window is a rare presentation of congenital heart disease, which requires early diagnosis and surgical treatment. We describe a successful one-stage repair of the anomaly through median sternotomy in a 10-day-old neonate weighing 2.46 kg.
