The management of congenitally corrected transposition of the great arteries and associated lesions is frequently challenging. Significant pulmonary stenosis is a contraindication to the conventional double-switch. Instead repair may be accomplished by the Rastelli-Senning procedure, using an extracardiac conduit to achieve continuity between the morphological left ventricle and the pulmonary arteries. This however can be accompanied by conduit and intra-ventricular baffle-related problems that can necessitate surgical re-intervention and lead to late mortality. We describe the use of aortic translocation, Senning procedure and reconstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract using auto..
