A 6-year-old boy was successfully operated on for double outlet ventricle, common atrioventricular canal with severe valvular regurgitation, right atrial isomerism, L-loop ventricles, total anomalous pulmonary venous connection, and pulmonary stenosis with hypoplastic left pulmonary artery. The interventricular rerouting from the left ventricle to the ascending aorta was performed with a spiral patch, the interatrial switching was performed by a Mustard patch, the common atrioventricular orifice was partitioned and valve repair was performed, and an 18-mm valved conduit was inserted between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery. Although the patient had a small residual ventricular septal defect and pulmonary stenosis, the patient is alive and well.
