To the Editor:
We read with great interest the article titled "Single-Stage Repair of Aortopulmonary Window With Interrupted Aortic Arch by Transection of the Aorta and Direct Reconstruction" by Yoshida and associates.1
The authors describe a repair technique using autologous arterial wall tissue without artificial material for a patient with aortopulmonary window (APW), right pulmonary artery (RPA) originating from the ascending aorta, and interrupted aortic arch. However, the repair technique for APW and RPA originating from the ascending aorta totally coincides with our previously reported technique.2
