Abstract

Aorticopulmonary window is a septation defect between ascending aorta and main pulmonary artery. It is usually seen with other congenital heart diseases. It is mostly seen together with interrupted aortic arch and coarctation of aorta. When the diagnosis of aorticopulmonary window is certain, immediate surgery is needed during neonatal period. In this article, a newborn with aorticopulmonary window and aortic coarctation is reported. The window was repaired with Gore-Tex patch and aortic coarctation was corrected with subclavian flap technique at the same time in a three-day-old boy. He was discharged on the seventh day of the operation without any problems.
