Interrupted aortic arch type A with aortopulmonary window was diagnosed in a 12-day-old neonate. A successful one-stage repair was undertaken through a midline sternotomy without circulatory arrest. The aortopulmonary window was closed through the anterior wall of communication between ascending aorta and main pulmonary artery with a patch. Position of the arterial cannula was changed during the repair, which made it possible to mobilize and expose the aortic arch for the completion of direct anastomosis.
