We evaluated the prevalence, image appearance, associated cardiovascular anomalies, and surgical outcomes of left pulmonary artery sling (LPAS) using cardiovascular computed tomography angiography (CCTA). A retrospective search of patients from our database between October 2007 and December 2014 identified 52,200 patients with congenital heart diseases (CHD) referred for CCTA, echocardiography, or magnetic resonance imaging. Clinical information, CCTA findings, associated cardiovascular anomalies, and surgical outcomes were analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: Congenital anomalies of the pulmonary arteries are uncommon. They can occur in isolation or in association with congenital heart defects. Isolated congenital anomalies remain undiscovered until they are reported as incidental findings on imaging tests, usually not until adolescence. We review the embryological development and normal anatomy of the pulmonary arteries as well as the spectrum of computed tomography findings for various congenital anomalies: unilateral interruption of the pulmonary artery, anomalous origin of the left pulmonary artery (pulmonary artery sling), idiopathic aneurysm of the pulmonary artery, and other anomalies associated with congenital heart defects...

Left pulmonary artery slings and vascular rings are rare congenital anomalies definable by fetal echocardiography. Left pulmonary artery slings are associated with high respiratory morbidity and mortality. Prenatal diagnosis of a left pulmonary artery sling should prompt delivery planning for postnatal management at a pediatric tertiary care center.

BACKGROUND: Vascular rings (VRs) are recognized as uncommon but not rare cardiovascular malformations. METHODS: We analyzed data from all patients born in Southern Nevada, who underwent diagnosis and management of VR from 1990 to 2015, RESULTS: From 1990 to 2015, a total of 92 patients were diagnosed prenatally and postnatally. Of the 92 patients, 73 (79%) had right aortic arch and aberrant left subclavian artery (RAA-ALS) with a left ductus arteriosus or ligamentum, 17 (19%) had a double aortic arch (DAA), and 2 (2%) had a pulmonary artery sling...

The involvement of the airway is not uncommon in the presence of complex cardiovascular malformations. In these cases, a careful inspection of the relationship between the airway and the vasculature is paramount to plan the surgical procedure. Three-dimensional printing enhanced the visualization of the cardiovascular structure. Unfortunately, IT does not allow to remove selected anatomy to improve the visualization of the surrounding ones. Computerized modeling has the potential to fill this gap by allowing a dynamic handling of different anatomies, increasing the exposure of vessels or bronchi to show their relationship...

We present two interesting cases of isolated left subclavian artery from the pulmonary artery with symptoms of upper airway obstruction. The first patient had tetralogy of Fallot, pulmonary artery sling, bilateral superior caval veins, and left bronchial isomerism, suggesting heterotaxy syndrome. The second patient had a right aortic arch, isolated left subclavian artery, and bilateral arterial ducts. These two cases are interesting because of their rarity and uncommon presentation.

OBJECTIVES: Surgery for vascular anomalies can occasionally fail to relieve symptoms, especially when severe tracheobronchial malacia persists. We studied outcomes in children who underwent airway stenting for severe post-surgical airway malacia and tested known clinical and surgical prognostic factors. METHODS: Among 257 children evaluated for tracheobronchial vascular compression, we reviewed the clinical charts for the 59 patients (23%) who underwent surgery...

A neonate with severe neonatal asphyxia was treated with therapeutic hypothermia. He developed hypothermia-induced respiratory deterioration, after which congenital tracheal stenosis and pulmonary artery sling were diagnosed. Even low-grade hypothermia is likely to induce bronchial narrowing in neonates, especially in neonates with congenital respiratory tract anomalies. Congenital tracheal stenosis represents a potential pitfall in differential diagnosis and should be carefully ruled out in cases of bronchial narrowing episode induced by therapeutic hypothermia...

BACKGROUND: Vascular rings may cause pressure on the trachea and/or esophagus of varying degree, resulting in symptoms. This study assessed the presentation symptoms, diagnostic methods and treatment results after surgery in children with vascular ring. METHODS: Symptomatic vascular ring patients undergoing surgery between January 2010 and August 2014 at Mehmet Akif Ersoy Cardiovascular Research and Training Hospital, Istanbul, were retrospectively assessed. The presentation symptoms, demographic characteristics, and diagnostic tests were evaluated...

The term vascular ring refers to congenital vascular anomalies of the aortic arch system that compress the esophagus and trachea, causing symptoms related to those two structures. The most common vascular rings are double aortic arch and right aortic arch with left ligamentum. Pulmonary artery sling is rare and these patients need to be carefully evaluated for frequently associated tracheal stenosis. Another cause of tracheal compression occurring only in infants is the innominate artery compression syndrome...

Isolated anomalies of the branch pulmonary arteries are rare, more often occurring in the setting of complex congenital heart disease. These isolated anomalies are often not identified in the prenatal period. We describe two cases of isolated anomalies of the left pulmonary artery which were identified on fetal echocardiography and confirmed postnatally, an anomalous left pulmonary artery arising from the base of the left-sided brachiocephalic artery in the setting of a right-sided aortic arch, and a left pulmonary artery sling...

OBJECTIVES: Congenital tracheobronchial stenosis (CTBS) is a rare disorder characterized by the presence of focal or diffuse complete tracheal or bronchial cartilage rings resulting in a fixed lumen narrowing. The aim of this study was to expose the association of various cardiovascular (CV) anomalies with various types of CTBS. METHODS: A retrospective review of 58 patients who had bronchoscopically proven CTBS between 1997 and 2011 was conducted. Totally, 48 cases who had received echocardiography, computed tomography and other examinations including cardiac catheterization were enrolled...

Pulmonary artery sling is a very rare cause of pediatric respiratory distress. The estimated prevalence of the disease was first determined by Yu et al. in 2008 as 59 per million school-aged children. Associated symptoms are cough, wheezing, and feeding difficulty, all of which are common in routine outpatient pediatric clinical encounters. We report a case of a premature male neonate twin who was admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit with respiratory distress and pneumothorax. His presentation, as well as the etiology of his pulmonary disease, was felt to be consistent with those of numerous other premature infants...

BACKGROUND: Congenital tracheal stenosis (CTS) is a serious and rare condition that often presents a complex surgical challenge. We reviewed the evolution of surgical approaches to the management of CTS at a single institution. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective clinical review of all patients who underwent surgical repair of CTS at our institution. From January 1992 to January 2014, a total of 30 patients (median age 92 days; range 3 days-1.7 years) underwent surgery for CTS at our institution...

We present a newborn with heterotaxy features, multiple congenital anomalies, truncus arteriosus with long segment tracheal stenosis, and a left pulmonary artery sling. The patient had complete neonatal repair with slide tracheoplasty and repair of the left pulmonary artery sling with anterior translocation of the pulmonary artery. The truncus was repaired with a transventricular ventricular septal defect closure with a patch and right ventricle to pulmonary artery conduit. Complete repair of complex cardiac neonatal lesions with critical tracheal stenosis is feasible and should be the strategy of choice in these complex patients...

Left pulmonary artery sling (LPAS) is a rare vascular anomaly. The left pulmonary artery arises distally from the right pulmonary artery on the right side of the trachea and passes between the trachea and esophagus towards the left lung, compressing the lower trachea. LPAS is associated with congenital tracheal stenosis, which frequently requires early surgical intervention and has a poor prognosis due to severe airway obstruction after birth. Therefore, LPAS should be prenatally diagnosed to prepare for surgical intervention for tracheal stenosis...
