We describe successful primary repair of 2 cases of transposition complex with aortic arch obstruction. A new aortic arch was reconstructed by direct anastomosis between the well-mobilized ascending aorta and the descending aorta. The neoaortic root with transferred coronary arteries was subsequently anastomosed to the undersurface of this new aortic arch. This technique deals with the significant size discrepancy between the 2 great arteries, and anomalous coronary artery patterns.
