Acquired pulmonary artery discontinuity can complicate operative repair of certain congenital heart defects. We describe successful recanalization of acquired left pulmonary artery atresia using radiofrequency energy in a 14-month-old child who had previously undergone repair of tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia.
