An arterial switch operation is considered the procedure of choice for the repair of Taussig-Bing anomaly, because it can be performed in most patients. However, after taking problems such as neoaortic insufficiency or myocardial perfusion disturbances after the arterial switch operation into account, intraventricular repair might be reconsidered as an option in selected patients. We present a case of Taussig-Bing anomaly in a patient with an oblique relationship of the great arteries, which was successfully managed by Kawashima intraventricular repair in the neonatal period, and discuss the feasibility of this option with a review of the literature.
