We report a modified technique of right pulmonary artery implantation to the main pulmonary artery with interposition of a tube created from the great arterial wall for an anomalous origin of the right pulmonary artery from the right lateral aspect of the ascending aorta. This technique offers extra autologous tissue length and reduced tension at the anastomotic site. It also offers the possibility to place the anomalous right pulmonary artery anterior to the ascending aorta, avoiding the aortic compression. This technique was employed successfully in a 15-week-old female. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
