Discontinuity of central intrapericardial pulmonary arteries requires reconstruction of a pulmonary artery confluence before cavopulmonary connection, whether this connection be by bidirectional Glenn or Fontan procedure. Reconstruction of the central pulmonary arteries has previously been described using material of poor or no growth potential. A method is described for central pulmonary artery reconstruction that provides growth potential and is based on previous experience with Fontan lateral tunnel construction.
