Repair of Bridging Bronchus and Severe Tracheal Stenosis Associated with Left Pulmonary Artery Sling and Ventricular Septal Defect
Bridging the bronchus and tracheal stenosis can be associated with congenital heart defects like atrial septal defects, ventricular septal defects, tetralogy of Fallot, and aortic coarctation. This video features a case of bridging the bronchus and severe tracheal stenosis associated with left pulmonary artery sling, ventricular septal defect, and aortic coarctation. This case was successfully repaired in a low-birth-weight neonate.
