Absorbable pulmonary artery banding may be a useful method of avoiding further operation or angioplasty in patients whose underlying lesion has a natural history of resolution. We report 2 cases of absorbable pulmonary artery banding using braided Dexon. In both cases the bands functioned well initially and were completely resorbed after 2 years and 6 months, respectively.
