Surgical repair of aortic atresia with a large ventricular septal defect and a normally developed left ventricle was accomplished in a 14 month old infant. Palliative surgery at age 23 days consisted of bilateral banding of pulmonary artery branches and replacement of the ductus arteriosus with a Goretex conduit. Corrective surgery was accomplished by closure of the ventricular septal defect, insertion of a valved conduit between the apex of the left ventricle and the subdiaphragmatic aorta, removal of the pulmonary artery bands and division of the pulmonary aortic conduit. The patient has a mild coarctation of the aorta and remains asymptomatic at 2 years of age.
