Isolated right pulmonary artery discontinuity

By Daniel Turner, J.A. Vincent and M.L. Epstein


Unilateral “absence” of the pulmonary artery is an uncommon malformation\ud frequently associated with congenital heart disease. In fact, the pulmonary artery is\ud typically discontinuous from the main pulmonary artery, not absent. This article reports a case of right pulmonary artery discontinuity not associated with congenital heart disease\ud and reviews the embryogenesis and treatment of this rare congenital cardiac anomaly.peer-reviewe
