Abstract

An eight-month-old male infant with corrected transposition of the great arteries and severe systemic atrioventricular valve regurgitation due to "Ebstein-like anomaly" is reported. Through a midline sternotomy and transeptal approach, a 20 mm Medtronic Hall aortic mechanical valve was reversely implanted into the systemic atrioventricular valve. Anti-platelet drugs (acetylsalicylic acid and dipyridamole) were prescribed for prevention of thromboembolism. The patient is doing well three years after operation.
