Abstract: A 2-month-old patient with transposition of the great arteries, a ventricular septal defect, pulmonary stenosis, and severe hypoplasia of the right ventricle successfully underwent a biventricular repair utilizing the aortic translocation technique. Advantages of this surgical repair over the Rastelli procedure in the management of this complex congenital heart lesion are discussed.
