A 2.5-year-old boy with a diagnosis of situs solitus, tricuspid atresia, anatomically corrected malposition of the great arteries {S,D,L}, left juxtaposition of atrial appendages, and pulmonary stenosis underwent successful total cavopulmonary connection by means of a superior vena cavato-pulmonary artery end-to-side anastomosis associated with an inferior vena cava-to-pulmonary artery direct anastomosis. Anatomic features and surgical technique are described.
