Translocation of the coronary arteries remains a technical challenge in anatomic correction of transposition of great arteries. Myocardial ischemia related to the difficulties with coronary relocation is an important factor in perioperative and postoperative morbidity and mortality, particularly in the patients with complex coronary artery anatomy. Intramural coronary artery is a rare anatomic variety which may complicate the arterial switch operation in 2% to 4.6% of the reported cases. Even in the hands of experts, the mortality rate may be in twofold in this subset of patients compared with simple transposition of great artery procedures. In this report, 2 successful translocation techniques for intramural coronary arteries in the setting of arterial switch operation are described.
