A technique with autologous tissue for the correction of type III truncus arteriosus is described. The truncal root was excised as a cylinder that incorporated pulmonary arteries and that was translocated anterior to the ascending aorta. The proximal section of the cylinder was closed and the pulmonary tract was reconstructed with anastomosis of a widely opened distal section to the right ventricle. Autologous pericardium was sutured to the entire surface of the pulmonary tract.
