The ­fate of ­patients ­with pul­mo­nary ­artery ­sling ­depends on asso­ciat­ed tra­cheal ­lesions. Distal tra­cheal sten­o­sis involv­ing the cari­na fre­quent­ly ­results in ­lethal obstruc­tion due to secre­tion or inflam­ma­to­ry ede­ma. Further-more, asso­ciat­ed com­plex car­diac anom­a­lies ­with exces­sive pul­mo­nary ­flow ­make the sit­u­a­tion ­more com­pli­cat­ed. We ­present a ­case of suc­cess­ful simul­ta­ne­ous one-­stage ­repair of pul­mo­nary ­artery ­sling, dou­ble out­let ­right ven­tri­cle and dis­tal tra­cheal obstruc­tion. Pulmonary ­artery ­sling was ­relieved by relo­ca­tion of the ­left pul­mo­nary ­artery (­left pul­mo­nary ­artery to ­main pul­mo­nary ­artery) and a tra­che­o­plas­ty (resec­tion and end-to-end anas­tom­o­sis). We advo­cate ear­ly aggres­sive simul­ta­ne­ous ­repair of pul­mo­nary ­artery ­sling ­with tra­cheal sten­o­sis and con­com­i­tant ­repair of intra­car­diac anom­a­lies when­ev­er pos­sible.
