Abstract

A male neonate was referred to our hospital with facial cyanosis and tachypnea at 19 days of age. Two-dimensional echocardiography showed type B interrupted aortic arch, posterior malalignment ventricular septal defect and valvular aortic stenosis. A new surgical repair was done with biventricular repair and neo-aortic arch reconstruction. Left ventricular outflow track (LVOT) was consisted of aortic valve and pulmonic valve. Right ventricular outflow (RVOT) track was reconstructed with extracardiac conduit. Postoperative two-dimensional echocardiography showed no stenosis and turbulency flow on LVOT and RVOT.
