Anomalous origin of the right pulmonary artery from the ascending aorta (AORPA), sometimes referred to as hemitruncus, is a rare malformation. We report a unique case of AORPA associated with Ebstein's anomaly and with congenital tracheal stenosis due to complete tracheal rings. The AORPA and tracheal stenosis were both successfully corrected in the neonatal period.

Perioperative management of congenital tracheal stenosis (CTS) is challenging. Objectives: We investigated the effect of closed-pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) perioperative management by pediatric intensivists, compared with open-PICU management by surgeons, on the ventilator-free days (VFD) and length of postoperative PICU stay in children with CTS. Methods: This retrospective cohort study was conducted in a PICU in Japan. Children with CTS who underwent slide tracheoplasty were grouped according to whether they were perioperatively managed in an open (January 2015 to April 2016) or a closed (May 2016 to July 2019) PICU. Data were extracted from patient medical records. Results: In total, 13 and 38 patients were included in the open- and closed-PICU groups, respectively. Compared to the open-PICU group, the closed-PICU group had shorter durations of muscle relaxant administration (median: 4 vs. 5 days; P < 0.001); earlier initiation of enteral feeding (median: postoperative day 1 vs. postoperative day 7; P < 0.001); more 28-day VFD (median: 21 vs. 20 days; P = 0.04); and shorter duration of postoperative PICU stay (median: 16 vs. 36 days; P = 0.002), but the mortality did not differ significantly (0/38 [0%] vs. 1/13 [8%]; P = 0.25). Conclusions: Closed-PICU perioperative management with pediatric intensivists’ participation significantly increased 28-day VFD and reduced the length of postoperative PICU stay in patients with CTS.
