Abstract

A newborn presented in cardiogenic shock with the diagnosis of anomalous single coronary artery from pulmonary artery and was successfully revived with prostaglandin (PGE 1) infusion. She underwent surgical implantation of her coronary arteries while receiving PGE 1 infusion to maintain high oxygen tension for the coronaries during cardiopulmonary bypass. She was discharged in 2 weeks with good biventricular function and moderate mitral regurgitation. At 2 months follow-up, she was gaining weight with preserved ventricular function and moderate mitral regurgitation.
