Abstract

We present the case of a young patient with severe congenital musculoskeletal abnormalities. associated with different pathologies, with involvement of the arterial tree on both the systemic and pulmonary circulation, and involvement of the lungs due to thoracic hypoplasia. The presence of such extensive pathology raises the question of the suitability of such patients to undergo major corrective cardiac surgery procedures.
