Abstract

Absent pulmonary valve with tricuspid atresia or tricuspid stenosis (APV-TA/TS) is an extremely rare congenital heart defect associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Compared to Tetralogy of Fallot with Absent Pulmonary Valve Syndrome, branch pulmonary arteries are not typically significantly dilated. We present the case of a newborn male prenatally diagnosed APV-TA with intact ventricular septum (IVS) and nearly discontinuous branch pulmonary arteries, the surgical strategy employed, and the salient hemodynamic factors considered in the medical decision-making.
