Abstract

A right aortic arch, with a retroesophageal transverse arch and an aberrant left brachiocephalic artery, is a rare anomaly by itself. When combined with severe mitral stenosis and hypoplasia of the left ventricle, it is rarer still. We describe the diagnosis and treatment of this rare anomaly in an infant using a modification of the Norwood operation.
