Abstract

We herein describe the successful surgical repair of a very rare combination of an aorta-to-left ventricle tunnel with the right coronary artery arising from it. The neonate presented with signs of heart failure due to significant regurgitation of blood via the tunnel. The closure of the tunnel was feasible during neonatal period without patches.
