Abstract

Tricuspid atresia and common truncus arteriosus are rare forms of congenital heart disease; the coexistence of both anomalies is therefore an extremely uncommon event. Without treatment, early mortality is the natural course so diagnostic and therapeutic management must be performed without delay. We report a case of a newborn with a postnatal diagnosis of coexistent tricuspid atresia and common arterial trunk in whom successful palliation was performed using a staged surgical approach.
