Abstract

Left bronchial obstruction is a rare complication after neonatal aortic arch reconstruction. This article describes the surgical management of a neonate with hypoplastic left heart syndrome who underwent a stage 1 Norwood reconstruction. A mediastinal infection developed with an abscess that caused left bronchial obstruction and disruption. The left bronchus was repaired successfully by using a pedicle intercostal muscle flap that was used to cover the defect.
