Abstract

An infant male presented with the rare anatomy consisting of situs solitus, concordant atrioventricular connections to L-looped ventricles, double outlet right ventricle (DORV), and hypoplastic aortic arch. 6 months after neonatal aortic arch repair, the morphologic right ventricle function deteriorated, and surgical evaluation was undertaken to determine if either biventricular repair with a systemic morphologic left ventricle or right ventricular exclusion was possible. After initial echocardiography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to create detailed axial and 4-dimensional (4D) images and 3-dimensional (3D) printed models. The detailed anatomy of this rare, complex case and its use in pre-surgical planning is presented.
