Abstract

A 5-month-old infant presented with respiratory failure secondary to severe right bronchial compression. Diagnostic imaging revealed a right aortic arch and absent left pulmonary artery. Surgical relief was obtained via median sternotomy by dividing a right ligamentum and pexing the enlarged right pulmonary artery to the ascending aorta.
