The standard of surgical treatment of a interruption of aortic arch of or its high-grade hypoplasia is reconstructive operation in the conditions
of artificial blood circulation. Results of such interventions improve every year. However, still there is a group of patients at whom
primary operation in the conditions of artificial blood circulation is interfaced to high risk. We present a successful case of the emergency
surgical help to the newborn with the high-grade hypoplasia of an aortic arch and defect of an interventricular septum with a being
closed open arterial duct. The separate banding of branches of a pulmonary artery and blood-flow recovery in a descending aorta by
an vascular prosthesis of Gore-Tex No. 6 of a trunk pulmonary artery, according to vital indications was caring out. The child is discharged
to home under out-patient supervision of the pediatrician in satisfactory condition.
