CABRERA, María del Carmen et al. Aortopulmonary window: a case report. Pediatr. (Asunción) [online]. 2021, vol.48, n.1, pp.84-89. ISSN 1683-9803.

Aortopulmonary window is a rare congenital heart malformation that is found in between 0.2% and 0.6% of all congenital heart disease. It consists of a communication between the ascending aorta and the trunk of the pulmonary artery in the presence of two arteries with two semilunar valves. We present the case of a 6-month-old infant weighing 5,860 kg referred to the pediatric cardiology service due to respiratory distress and low weight gain. As part of the diagnostic workup, color Doppler echocardiography was performed, along with subsequent cardiac catheterization and surgical resolution.

Keywords : Aortopulmonary window; color Doppler echocardiography; cardiac catheterization; surgical resolution.
