Aortopulmonary window (APW) is an abnormal congenital connection between the main pulmonary artery (MPA) and the ascending aorta, with intact aortic and pulmonary valves, leading to heart failure or, if not repaired early, to pulmonary vascular obstructive disease. We report the rare case of an asymptomatic adult with an unrestrictive APW, whose pulmonary arterial hypertension was remarkably still reversible, permitting successful repair.
