Percutaneous major aortopulmonary collateral artery banding using a covered stent in an infant

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We report a 6-month-old infant with pulmonary atresia with ventricular septal defect who was successfully treated with a novel technique of percutaneous major aortopulmonary collateral artery (MAPCA) banding with a covered stent. He suffered from heart failure due to a residual MAPCA of 4.5 mm in diameter. A covered stent tied with 2 5-0 size nylon threads was successfully deployed into the MAPCA in a dumbbell shape with a banding diameter of 2.8 mm. Banding covered stent implantation is a useful method to reduce the pulmonary blood flow in patients with MAPCA, which could be a less-invasive alternative to surgery.
