BACKGROUND : This study is a single-centre experience with surgical intervention of anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA). METHODS : A retrospective review was performed of patients who underwent ALCAPA repair between November 1991 and October 2017. RESULTS : A total of 138 patients with a median age of 36 months underwent ALCAPA repair. The median follow-up period was 3.5 years. Overall, 114 (82.6%) patients received coronary reimplantation, 21 (15.2%) underwent Takeuchi repair, and three (2.1%) were treated by closure of the ALCAPA plus coronary artery bypass graft. Concomitant mitral repair was performed in 50 patients with moderate-to-severe mitral regurgitation (MR). Three (2.1%) patients died in hospital. Three (2.1%) patients needed extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) support. Seven (5.0%) patients needed delayed sternal closure. In patients with decreased preoperative left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) (<50%), the LVEF significantly improved from 25% to 33% at discharge (p = 0.001). The percentage of more than moderately significant MR decreased from 36.2% to 5.2% (p = 0.02). There was no late mortality. Two patients needed reoperation because of baffle leaks after Takeuchi repair. Three patients had severe MR. All patients had normal LVEF at last follow-up. The median normalisation time of left ventricle function was 6 months. CONCLUSIONS : Short-term and mid-term outcomes of surgical treatment for ALCAPA patients were excellent. The concomitant mitral valve repair did not increase the perioperative risk but had satisfactory mid-term outcomes. Normalisation of left ventricular function is expected within the first 6 months.
