Anatomic repair is the standard surgical approach to congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries. However, timing to perform the procedure remains controversial. We present 2 cases of congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries and Ebstein's-like anomaly of the tricuspid valve presenting with heart failure. Both cases had successful anatomic repair during the neonatal period.
