Abstract

The operation of D-transposition of the great arteries is performed extremely rarely in patients with mirror image dextrocardia and situs inversus totalis. Therefore, it is not surprising that such unusual anatomy case presents problems with primary operation. We present a case of late right pulmonary artery stenosis after neonatal surgical anatomic correction of mirror image dextrocardia and situs inversus totalis.
