Abstract

Cardiac malformations are very rare in which the great arteries arise from their appropriate ventricles, but are abnormally related to each other. Here, we present a patient with mirror-imaged atrial arrangement and a left-sided heart who has parallel arterial trunks with discordant atrioventricular and concordant ventriculo-arterial connections. The ventricles were related in supero-inferior fashion, the left ventricle being anterior and superior, this being an additional feature which, to the best of our knowledge, has not previously been described in this setting.
