Abstract

Right pulmonary artery (RPA) stenosis following Waterston shunt is common. We report a case of RPA stenosis many years following tetralogy of Fallot repair with take-down of a Waterston shunt and demonstrate an unusual and important anatomic variant of proximity of the left coronary artery to the mid-portion of the RPA. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
