Abstract

Although truncus arteriosus is often treated with low mortality and morbidity rates, truncal valve patency and aortic arch and coronary artery anomalies are factors that can contribute to a worse outcome. In this report, we present our experience with the combination of Rastelli and Norwood procedures for the treatment of Type I truncus arteriosus that was complicated by a hypoplastic aortic arch.
