Can an aortopulmonary window be fixed?

Yes. Usually, the hole between the aorta and the pulmonary artery is closed with a patch. This surgery is normally done as soon as possible after the diagnosis is made, usually when the child is a newborn.

What is the long-term outlook for a baby with an aortopulmonary window?

Surgery to fix an aortopulmonary window is successful in most cases, if the defect is treated quickly.
