PURPOSE: As an extremely rare abnormity, type IIA pulmonary artery sling (PAS) tracheobronchial anomalies should be differentiated from normal airway for therapeutic decision-making. This study aimed to investigate the quantitative characteristics of type IIA PAS tracheobronchial anomalies using dual-source computed tomography (DSCT). MATERIALS AND METHODS: From January 2009 to December 2016, there were 11 type IIA PAS patients enrolled for analysis and compared with 32 controls...

OBJECTIVE: The aims of this study were to determine the rate and describe 30-day postoperative complications of concomitant pelvic organ prolapse and/or urinary incontinence (POPUI) procedures in women undergoing surgery for a gynecologic malignancy. METHODS: Women who underwent surgical intervention for a gynecologic malignancy between 2010 and 2014 were identified using postoperative International Classification of Diseases, Ninth Revision codes 179.0 to 184.9 in the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database...

Congenital tracheal stenosis (CTS) is rare lesions frequently associated with pulmonary sling (PS). Despite the recent improvement in the results by the introduction of slide tracheoplasty (ST) and multidisciplinary approach, surgical management remains difficult and several authors, for this reason, debate for a conservative approach in these cases. Preoperative planning, require hence the use of the most innovative technology to gain the best possible result. This report describes a complicated, unsuccessful surgically treated case of CTS associated to PS...

Herein, the case of an infant initially diagnosed with left pulmonary artery sling, ventricular septal defect and a small atrial septal defect is described. Further diagnostic work-up revealed tracheobronchial anomalies and the presence of an anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery. The staged surgical management is described.

Pulmonary artery slings and vascular rings are very rare congenital anomalies. It is even rarer to have both anomalies in the same setting. We present a case of a toddler who was diagnosed with a left pulmonary artery sling and a vascular ring as part of the screening process for the VACTERL association - co-occurrence of vertebral, anorectal, cardiac, tracheoesophageal, renal, and limb malformations. He underwent a successful surgical repair via median sternotomy and on cardiopulmonary bypass with an uneventful postoperative course...

Pulmonary sling is the anatomic variant defined by the aberrant origin of the left pulmonary artery from the right pulmonary artery. This patient presented with a mimic of pulmonary sling as a result of an extremely rare condition, arterial tortuosity syndrome (ATS). The patient was first diagnosed with pulmonary sling on prenatal echocardiogram performed by cardiology. Computed tomography angiography of the chest obtained at birth to evaluate respiratory depression demonstrated ATS. The early detection of ATS has been demonstrated to improve patient outcome...

We report on 2 different types of left pulmonary artery sling (LPAS), types IA and IIB, diagnosed by fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We suggest that fetal MRI is an effective tool for accurately diagnosing LPAS and helping guide its perinatal management. Fetal MRI is relatively unaffected by the conditions that limit visualization by echocardiography. When prenatal ultrasound detects either a possible anomalous origin of the left pulmonary artery or a tracheobronchial anomaly, fetal MRI may provide additional information to confirm the LPAS diagnosis and classify its type...

BACKGROUND: Anomalous origin of the pulmonary arteries is a rare congenital pulmonary vascular malformation that includes unilateral absence of the pulmonary artery (UAPA), anomalous origin of unilateral pulmonary artery (AOPA), and left pulmonary artery sling (LPAS). METHODS: We analyze 15 cases of fetal pulmonary artery abnormalities from 2011 to 2017, detected via prenatal ultrasound at our center. RESULTS: The 15 cases include UAPA (5), AOPA (6), and LPAS (4)...

Objective: To discuss the surgical treatment and early-mid follow-up results of complete atrioventricular septal defect (CAVSD). Methods: The clinic data of 235 cases of CAVSD underwent surgical treatment at Department of Cardiac Surgery, Guangdong General Hospital from June 2009 to June 2016 was analyzed retrospectively (104 male and 131 female patients). The patients were aged 18 days to 58 years (mid age 8.9 months) at surgery, and 2 cases of newborns (0.9%), 24 cases of 1 to 3 months (10.2%), 56 cases of 4 to 6 months (23...

REVIEW
Colin Wallis, Clare A McLaren
Tracheobronchomalacia is a rare but clinically troublesome condition in paediatrics. The softening of the major airways - which can include some or all of the tracheobronchial tree can lead to symptoms ranging from the minor (harsh barking cough, recurrent chest infections) to severe respiratory difficulties including prolonged ventilator support and 'near death attacks'. The causes are broadly divided into intrinsic softening of the airway wall which is considered a primary defect (e.g. syndromes; post tracheo-oesophageal fistula repair; extreme prematurity) or secondary malacia due to external compression from vascular structures or cardiac components...

Congenital cardiovascular anomalies, such as dextrocardia, persistent left superior vena cava (SVC), and pulmonary artery (PA) sling, are rare disorders. These congenital anomalies can occur alone, or coincide with other congenital malformations. In the majority of cases, congenital anomalies are detected early in life by certain signs and symptoms. A 56-year-old man with no previous medical history was admitted due to recurrent wide QRS complex tachycardia with hemodynamic collapse. A chest radiograph showed dextrocardia...

Children requiring reimplantation of a branch pulmonary artery (PA) are at risk for postoperative stenosis and impaired growth of the reimplanted PA. Outcomes and risk factors for reintervention and impaired growth are incompletely described. We reviewed data on patients who underwent reimplantation of a branch PA between 1/1/99 and 5/1/15 at a single center. The primary outcome was reintervention to treat postoperative stenosis. The secondary outcome was "catch-up" growth (faster diameter growth of the affected PA compared with the unaffected PA from the preoperative to follow-up measurements...

The VACTERL association, co-occurrence of vertebral, anorectal, cardiac, tracheoesophageal, genitourinary, and limb malformations, is a rare congenital anomaly. Several cardiac anomalies have been reported as a part of the VACTERL association, particularly ventricular and atrial septal defects. Pulmonary artery sling is a rare congenital abnormality in which the left pulmonary artery arises from the right pulmonary artery. This anomaly is not frequently observed in the VACTERL association and has been rarely reported...

Pulmonary artery sling (PAS) is a rare disease frequently associated with severe malacia and stenosis of the trachea. We present a two-day-old newborn that underwent urgent surgery for PAS and needed prolonged respiratory support afterward. Temporary airway stenting above the level of the tracheal bifurcation was performed five days after surgery to overcome severe airway obstruction caused by tracheomalacia and laceration of the tracheal mucosa after diagnostic bronchoscopy. Two days after the procedure, the child could be extubated and after two weeks the stent was removed without complications...

OBJECTIVE: Three-dimensional (3D) printing is a manufacturing method by which an object is created in an additive process, and can be used with medical imaging data to generate accurate physical reproductions of organs and tissues for a variety of applications. We hypothesized that using 3D printed models of congenital cardiovascular lesions to supplement an educational lecture would improve learners' scores on a board-style examination. DESIGN AND INTERVENTION: Patients with normal and abnormal aortic arches were selected and anonymized to generate 3D printed models...

We present a case of a 10-month-old girl baby with pulmonary artery sling and bridging bronchus demonstrated using multidetector computed tomography with a three-dimensional volume-rendering display and minimum intensity projections. To the best of our knowledge, this method has been helpful not only in the diagnosis and surgical planning for this rare abnormality but also in the evaluation of prognosis. After pulmonary artery reimplantation, the patient was well and discharged.
