Abstract

An aneurysm of the main pulmonary artery is a rare entity with differing management strategies found among the medical and surgical literature. The etiology of this entity is variable and its natural history unknown. We describe repair in an adult by means of graft interposition using cardiopulmonary bypass. We give our rationalization for surgical repair and present the contrary view of conservative management. (Ann Thorac Cardiovasc Surg 2008; 14: 399-401).
