Pulmonary Valve Atresia with Intact Ventricular Septum
Report of a Case with Long Survival and Pulmonary Blood Supply from an Anomalous Coronary Artery
A case of pulmonary valve atresia with intact ventricular septum' with long survival in the absence of a patent ductus arteriosus, is presented. The patient, alive at 21 years of age, has the anterior descending branch of the left coronary artery originating from the pulmonary artery. Thus, the pulmonary blood supply is obtained from the right coronary artery via intercoronary anastomoses. No similar case has been reported previously.
