Abstract: Pulmonary artery sling was successfully treated by division and reimplantation of the left pulmonary artery in identical twins. Long-term patency of the reimplanted pulmonary artery in both twins as well as in 4 other operated children was confirmed by lung perfusion scan. Early operative treatment of pulmonary artery sling is advocated.
