Anomalous origin of the pulmonary artery from the ascending aorta is a rare congenital cardiovascular anomaly which usually involves the right pulmonary artery. Because congestive heart failure and the pulmonary vascular obstructive changes develop early in life, early diagnosis and surgical correction are essential. We experienced two cases of anomalous origin of the right pulmonry artery from the ascending aorta; aorticopulmonary septal defect was combined in one case and patent ductus arteriosus in the other. Because both cases had a successful surgical correction, we report our two cases with brief review of literature.
Key Words: Anomalous origin of right pulmonary artery, Aorticopulmonary septal defect, Aorta
