Isolation of the left innominate artery (IA) with right aortic arch is a rare congenital anomaly in which the IA loses its connection to the aorta and is connected to the pulmonary artery via a left ductus arteriosus. Here, we report a case of a 9-month-old girl with incomplete isolation of the IA and double outlet right ventricle. Along with repair of the intracardiac anomaly, the IA was reimplanted to aortic arch to ensure adequate blood flow from the aorta.
