Abstract

We describe a new technique for coronary transfer in the repair of anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery. The left coronary artery is elongated with the native pulmonary artery wall to form a spiral-shaped coronary cuff to construct an unstretched new left coronary artery system from the ascending aorta. A postoperative angiographic scan showed good flow of the left coronary artery without any kinking or narrowing. This technique is considered useful when an anomalous coronary artery arises a long way from the ascending aorta.
