A one-month-old girl with a diagnosis of situs solitus, d-transposition of the great arteries, coarctation of the aorta, and right aortic arch underwent a successful rapid two-stage repair. The combined anatomy of coarctation and right aortic arch is relatively rare, and even rarer in combination with transposition of the great arteries. We report the first successful surgical intervention to correct these anomalies.
